The Top Seven Characters That Lynn Doesn't Realize Aren't Underdogs: Number 6

Now, as you know, we've gotten a lot of mileage from the idea that when Lynn seeks to make a character into a good person, the end result is to make them monsters. The next person on my list is the first example of that tendency: Connie. Originally, her job was to be the Evil Career Woman who made Elly sad about watching her life go by chasing after children. Then, Lynn started to redeem her. The end result was to make of her a basket-case whose motivation was wanting everything Elly had because she's stupid enough to think that Elly likes her life. She'd run over anyone and anything to be a clone of a nitwit without gratitude and woe betide obstacles.
