Agreed. I was always partial to Alister/Zip from the LAU era. Jonah is a bit too stoic for my tastes. The more fun/interesting the side characters are, the more personality they can bring out of Lara herself.

Plus, the other thing about Alister/Zip that I liked was that they didn't actually go on the adventures. The LAU Lara came across as more capable/independent because--in the field--she was alone. Alister/Zip were to Lara what Ving Rhames' character in Mission Impossible was to Ethan Hunt... a voice in the ear that could provide intel, emotional support, a moral compass, and a few jokes.

Basically, I think reboot Lara needs a lighthearted buddy that can challenge her intellectually/emotionally/morally without completely stealing the spotlight. And perhaps it is too much of a trope, but I really think Lara could use a Ron Stoppable to her Kim Possible, a Joker to her Shepard, a Castle to her detective Beckett.
