It’s similar to Buffy in Anne though. They were both traumatised teenagers trying to run away from their problems and hiding behind a constructed veneer. Both realised that it just wasn’t possible to do that, ironically they empower each other in Faith. hope and Trick to confide about their issuesThe thing that bothers me about Faith and why I lack a bit of sympathy for her is that she lied. She came all the way to Sunnydale, supposedly for help, but then she doesn't tell Buffy or Giles or anyone what has actually happened. She rolls in with her big stories, showing off, pretending to be someone she's not. She's an inauthentic person (with is what existentialist Bad Faith, the basis of her character, is meant to be). Why didn't she tell them her watcher was dead? That she was being chased? Why bother coming to Sunnydale at all if you were not there to ask for help?
