i always felt like she was the most underused character, keeping in mind that she was part of the Nerd Herd and there since Marked. it almost felt convenient, like "yeah we'll make...erin go bad cause she hasn't had much to do and we barely know her character so it won't be that big of a sacrifice".
tbh i got somehow the vibe that she felt overlooked and idk part of a matching set with shaunee, although it seems like shaunee was the one to break away trying to be her own person which left erin in an existential crisis?
the more i look back at this series i notice so many things that bother me that i never thought about when i first read HoN, i.e. how hypocritical and mary sue of a character zoey redbird is.
