Little Liz is the first character, and she at once shows the role of Little Al. Many of us are too familiar with that feeling of always being in the slowest line at the shop, having the seat at the cinema behind the tallest guy with a big hair etc. It doesn´t show yet, but Al is a genuinely kind little guy that wants all the best for everyone, in contrary to many of the people surrounding him. I felt sorry for him in this first strip, maybe that´s what made me keep him.
