>>104327897>none of the horde member we know so far have a reasons to be in the horde. catra doesnt like the horde, she could have just joined adora or bailed when she left
Catra has an incredible amount of reasons for staying with the horde. Which I'll get to, but first I'll knock down these soft balls you threw.>the recruits are a bunch of incompetents and kyle is the worst of them.
The only incompetent one /is/ Kyle. He's literally introduced as such in the first episode. The rest of them are fine at their job, especially given what their job is -- recruits. Adora and Ctra were the two exceptional exceptions.>scorpia is the worst "they dont like me so i guess I will genocide them, but I have a heart of gold"
It seems you missed the part about her kingdom already having had an alliance with the horde, and giving them their runestone.
But getting back to Catra. First of all, she makes it seem that she's above the manipulation she's undergone, but it's clear she's drunk the same Kool-Aid that colored Adora's perspective of things early in the show, when we see her disdain for princesses, and apprehension to trust princesses.
But more important than that, Catra stayed with the Horde because she was on her way to making something of herself. Just as Adora left, she was made force captain -- something she implied she never dreamed of becoming. And as a lot of her words and actions show, power and being in control is more important to her than most other things (Which is why she completely cut ties with Adora when she realized that she was in the way of her getting it).
And perhaps even more important than all of that, Catra stays with the Horde because when it all comes down to it, she's like them. It's possibly partly due to the fact that she was raised by them, but her underhanded, manipulative nature is part of who she is. She's a bad guy, and likely enjoys what she's doing in b4 redemption arc.
