Alfred Higgins is a character who grows during the course of the story. At the start, Alfred is an incompetent, immature young man who has difficulty holding a job. He also lies and is portrayed as selfish. Later on, however, Alfred grows and begins to become more mature, especially after his mother helps him after he is caught stealing.
