Now I'm sure alot of you know there is alot of Rose hate around becasue "she's weak" but is she really all that weak? Alot of people say she is too easily influenced by others but I'm having second thoughts.

First we have Cornello;
Rose lost her Brother/boyfriend (depending on what you read) and Cornello says he and his faith can bring him back to life. The whole City follows this faith and Cornello has shown some rather snazzy miracles including bringing several folk back from the grave (ok, we know this is a lie but the townsfolk don't.) Rose follows this faith and when Ed comes along and says it's all lies but she doesn't agree with him but sticks to her convictions. Seems reasonable to me. It's only when Cornello tries the old "Giant killer bird monster" trick that she changes her mind and believes Ed.

Then we have Dante;
Now I may be stupid but I'm almost certain a 400+ year old, highly skilled Alchemist/Chemist could over power and hypnotize most people and a Mute, frail girl should be even easier.
Rose is suffering from shock and/or Trauma after "some bad .... went down" and this person comes along offering support and kindness and hints of a romantic affection. Who wouldn't follow Dante in that kind of situation even without Dante using any of her extra trickery to lure Rose to her side?
Also, if you look at Roses eyes when Ed finds her they are glazed over which suggests she was drugged/hypnotized.

I don't think Rose is weak, I think she just came across to very unlikely people who have far more power/cunning than a regular bad guy.

So do you guys think Rose is truly weak or just a victim of unlikely circumstances?

Sorry if this a repeat topic but I don't recall this topic coming up before...
