* ContemporaryCaveman: Alley has been shuttling back and forth from our time to his own for so many years that he's perfectly comfortable in our world, but he's still always happy to return home. Ditto for Ooola. Recent years have seen Guz, Umpa, and th' Wizer visit the present as well.

* InsistentTerminology: If anyone calls Dinny a pet, Alley will be quicky to correct them: Dinny is his ''friend'' and he's free to come and go as he pleases. Dinny spends most of his time out in the wild and it's not like Alley could restrain Dinny (even if he wanted to). Dinny hangs out with Alley because he likes him.
