It also keeps her in the "shot". Since Kyitae's a smaller character, she needs to find a way to stay in the frame with all the taller people. Daggur's the only character I don't have to worry about, since he's only slightly bigger than Kyitae.
So basically my options are A)
Have a lot of long shots and/or alternating closeups (both of which take up a lot of comic space I need for the rest of the story), or B)
Find a way to get her at head level with everyone else. Having her laying on furniture or another character's shoulder seems to be a pretty effective method for that.
