She isn't exactly the leading type. If she was, then she'd be running that team though. I always saw her position on par with Rainbow's — managing an aspect of local nature.


@Spinny
True, if they'd left her somewhere they could see her, it would be a lot herder for her to cause trouble.

Considering she has been in a School of Friendship beforehand and learned nothing from it except for whatever she could use for her own benefit, and how to be even more manipulative than before, trying would be rather futile.

Okay, I guess.
Starlight did worse than Cozy and still was reformed despite her relapses and total inability to understand why brainwashing people was a bad thing, which is another reason to believe that she just made things difficult for the series' staff by merely existing and serving as a reference point for all the things they did wrong.

I have a feeling that if they did offer that to her, she would just use it to inflate her ego and further strengthen her psychopathic ideology.

Twilight tried turning 'Friendship' into an establishment, which was a flawed idea from the getgo. Most of the successes the Friendship School had were by coincidence or proximity, not by actual course design. The effectiveness of a friendship school is overstated.

There will always be those who feel at home rejecting the establishment, but that would not stop someone actually wise to make her see that friendship can actually be a meaningful part of life in her personally. It's the very basis of the importance of individual attention.

This leads partially back to the issue that Cozy has no real backstory. There's nothing to her beyond being evil.

Kids have no filter, so if an intelligent but young kid fully obsesses with the idea of being evil is the greatest thing ever, she would be terrible, especially in a world where magic exists.

But she is STILL a child. She is not the smarest person in the world, she is not the wisest person in Equestria, no matter how much evil she's accumulated in herself, she still only has child's amount of life experience to back it up. She has a horrible soul, but one untested and unguarded by years of experience. Saying she was a lost cause is premature.

Normally I'd say that not all villains need a backstory to better understand them or to make them sympathetic, but I feel like Cozy was one villain that could've benefitted from one.

We aren't saying its an excuse. Were saying its a reason to give more effort to reform her then those who have done evil for ages like Tirek and Chrysalis. I'm not talking about unconditional patience, but we are talking about EFFORT. Far more effort then the show gave her. Within the context of FiM, it would be unnatural to give so little effort into trying to reform her and then turning her to stone.
