Non-human characters are fun to watch, but their certain factors of personality make them likeable. The personality traits of humans such as loyalty, friendship and love, or sometimes it's the way they handle their part. The fact that people aren't even sure of their existence makes them quite hard to love, but the characters must be too good to gain that unique position in people's hearts.
