No matter how much Tat may change the other characters, it would be undeniably WRONG to change Seymour. The kind of Christianity he represents is inflexible. You might as well just retire the character if he were to become anything but what we saw in this strip.

Even Seymour has levels, of which this strip represents just one. After all, he's friends with Pebbles (condescendingly friends but hey, it's a start, right?) and has some sort of vaguely friend-ish relationship with Li'l E. He even gets along kind of okay with some of the other characters now and then, as seen here:

Oh, of course. Characters that have only one joke become tedious. Seymour has a range, but inevitably falls back into a default position of "fearin' Jesus and smitin' with mah shotgun". As he should.
