Al's race is not certain. Al is described as a "man" with a tan in Summer Update 13, but has vampire ears in the pictures of 13 and 14. He does not fly and is fat (Don King is also fat, so this is not an indicator).
- He may be a vampire too fat to fly, and Jillian may call any humanoid unit a "man".
- He may be a man that wears something on his ears to look more like his vampire friends.
- He may be a comedic character created with Rob's dramatic license simply to make us laugh.
Real World References
"Al Frappacino's" name is a reference to American actor Al Pacino, who is well known for playing mobsters like Michael Corleone in The Godfather films. A "frappuccino" is also the name of a blended coffee drink sold by Starbucks, though it is spelled slightly differently than Al's last name.
Al's attire, which consists of a toga, gold garland and sandals, is reminiscent of a Real World Roman patrician.
In Summer Update 13, Al calls himself "a weird guy."
