Man, I forgot how adorable the young versions of the Mane Six were. Or maybe, since this was Season 1, I was still in "Okay this is surprisingly good but still sugary anathema to my manly soul" binge-watching mode at the time and I've just learned to appreciate cute things more since then.

If I'm recalling correctly, RD justified her status as the Element of Loyalty by saying that, to her, being Chaotic Evil just meant doing whatever she wanted, whenever she wanted. I think that the same logic can apply here, too.

In retrospect, isn't that more Chaotic Neutral?

It's *totally* Chaotic Neutral... But there's no CN in 4th Ed. A rather dumb choice in my opinion (might as well have gone all the way and remove the alignment system, which is already problematic, especially since players love using it but still argue against it's minutiae every step of the way), but in Rainbow's player case I'd say "unaliged", still pretty much free (not to an extreme) while still being able to justify making good for good's sake (something a CE would rarely, if ever, do).

Besides, it could be that RD ranks more on the chaotic than evil on that spectrum, or it could be that dealing with the bullies regularly is what made her evil--the anger just boiled over and not want to deal with other's you-know-what, and those two ideas are right off the top of my head.

I once played a character that was quite beloved by the party, 'Geist' did her hardest to keep the party alive at all times, often sacrificing her own wealth to help them, and using several of her feats to craft them magic items. Most of her spells were even buff spells, she had little to no offensive capabilities.

This one time she talked a powerful fire elemental out of murdering the party by promising to use plane shift to send it home, though the casting time was a few rounds and it got impatient... So she sent it to the elemental plane of water instead... that sure surprised the 'good' party and all the players as well.

"Geist only goal is to be loved and have friends... she will literally do anything to maintain this... she's not a good person." I said to their aghast faces. Over the next few games they unwrapped Geist and discovered that she was a Undead Illusionist who worshipped a goddess of eternal love. Also she spent her free time killing off isolated villages for the souls and lifeforce to make them 'presents'(Magical Gear). The other players were shocked, and no longer believe anything I say.

@Mirsellus - how'd that little revelation affect her status of "loved and has friends?"

Remember.... Adolf Hitler loved animals, and was quite good with small children. And in the end,
