[[WMG: Carmen's closest friend in her childhood was [[MagicSchoolBus Valerie Frizzle]].]]

to:

[[WMG: Carmen's closest friend in her childhood was [[MagicSchoolBus [[Literature/MagicSchoolBus Valerie Frizzle]].]]



Their first adventures were of Carmen sneaking away and dragging Valerie along with her - this might expose Valerie to how interesting other people can be via cultural artifacts (if she's been picked on, she might have been adverse to social contact), while Valerie may act as a conscious for Carmen, who tends to disregard rules and might have turned out to be a straightforward villainess instead of the [[GentlemanThief Gentlewoman Thief]] we know her as now. Through their worldwide travels (all hidden from the regular Powers That Be thanks to Carmen's legendary stealth abilities) they also form contacts with a ''wide'' variety of people who help them later in life - this is more obviously helpful for Valerie's backstory as the ''MagicSchoolBus'' episodes show her social network to be quite widely cast, but Carmen would also benefit from such a network as well in order to keep her activites on the down-low.

That's why she is such a FriendlyEnemy, she's just in it to have fun because she's got nothing else to do. She'll even help her enemies as long as she has someone to compete with. It explains her worldly knowledge, and doing [[ImpossibleThief stealing impossible things]] just because [[LivingForeverIsAwesome she knows she won't die doing it]].

* In [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4378356/4/Magical_Girl_Ranko_vs_Z_Fighter_Ryouga Magical Girl Ranko vs Z Fighter Ryouga]] ([[CaptainObvious yes, it's a crack fic]], and the sequel of the infamous [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3844604/1/Ryouga_vs_the_Road_Runner Ryouga vs the Road Runner]]), Ryoga accidentally told Ukyo that his mother is an international criminal, but then said he was joking and that [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial his mother definitely isn't the head of an international organization named V.I.L.E.]]. Wisely, Ukyo decided she didn't actually want to know.

*While you reasoning is solid, I have an argument of my own: Sociopathy is largely defined by lack of ability to care about or relate to others. Let's take a look at the series where Carmen gets the most characterization: Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego? While she still does steal things in the series, because that's a staple trait of her character, and she does it for the thrill of it, she seems to go to great pains to ensure that her actions do not physically hurt other people. For example, she does not use explosives. Whether or not she only cares about preserving the landmarks is debatable, but there's my reasoning on the matter. Another point is her relationship with Zack and Ivy in that series. On the surface, it appears to be an average younger hero/ older villain relationship. But then we watch the episode, "The Rules of the Game". At one point in the episode, Ivy is about to fall off a ledge. How does Carmen react to this? By reaching out to Ivy and insisting she (Ivy) take her(Carmen) hand, and there are many other instances where Carmen attempts to save or help Zack and Ivy. This shows that while Carmen regularly acts in ways that blatantly break many laws for the heck of it, she is capable of relating to and caring about other people. If Carmen does have some form of mental illness, in this troper's mind, she's more likely to have borderline personality disorder, or something similar.
