She is a familiar character from the teen drama: Furthermore, Cordelia's exceptionalism is based on 'real' material privilege rather than supernatural power. She represents in more exaggerated form the unnamed white middle-class heterosexual qualities read privilege of the other characters to the point that it becomes visible. The article focuses on the competitive relationship between the characters. Buffy's initial friendship with Cordelia is compromised once Cordelia sees the attractive, socially competent Buffy as a threat to her.
Even after Cordelia joins the Scooby Gang and becomes Buffy's friend, theirs is not a friendship of "mutual support, warmth and intimacy" but rather one of "mutual antipathy". The authors opine that Cordelia, unlike Buffy, is a "representation of the archetypal 'feminine type'", one who conforms to the "pervasive stereotypes of femininity while, at the same time, dominating the other girls in the school" and commanding the attention of the boys.

Despite becoming more sympathetic as the series progressed, "bitchiness enhances Cordelia's comic appeal", as it offers viewers an opportunity to relish its honest truth-telling.
Any concerns that she was simply one-dimensional were alleviated for the actress when writers developed the character through her relationships with Xander and later Wesley, which led Carpenter to become more convinced of her potential. Schlozman writes about how "Cordelia is wealthy and, at first glance, superficial, appearing to care most about her own popularity.
However, as the show progresses, we learn that her mother suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome and her father was prosecuted for income tax evasion. She is a reluctant participant, baffled at her own loyal feelings and bewildered at her attraction to the unpopular Xander. Because she is in love with him in spite of herself, or in spite of him. I have my best moments with [Nicholas Brendon]. I didn't want her to be nice; I didn't want her to change because that's who she is.
She's got to be somewhat tolerable or why would they hang out with her? But I [try] not to lose her edge, her honesty. Describing this evolution, Carpenter comments, "When I first started playing Cordelia, she wasn't nice.
She has really deepened and has a stronger sense of responsibility. She's a team player, which was not the case in the beginning. Heroic, vulnerable, just angry, possessed, funny — I get to be all those different things rolled into one. Getting this role, in hindsight God I made a good decision, or they did.
