Scott Adams is genius.
Today on his blog, he imagined his characters as chess pieces.
He describes each character/piece:
Alice = Queen. The most powerful and capable piece.
Boss = King. He’s in charge, but largely helpless.
Dilbert = Rook. He moves in a straight path. Dilbert’s head shape and bumpy hairline even resemble a rook.
Bishop = Wally. He always has an angle, and he has a little bald head.
Dogbert = Knight. It’s the sneakiest chess piece. You never see it coming. And it’s the only animal.
Pawn = Asok the interns. He’s small and powerless and expendable.
