a redemption arc is when a character realizes the error of their ways and spends the duration of their time righting the wrongs they have inflicted.
a redemption arc is not when a character makes peace with/friends with the heroes but never really expresses remorse and continues to be a little shit but behaves slightly better while never fully suffering for their actions.
