I agree with you, and this has already been cleared with some real life example.

I also agree, there you would have a perfect example for a character with low IQ.

Ah, they have already swallowed that pill, now what I need are more characters, like rivals at their level, and others with different levels of power. If you have files, or stories, or anything, of characters that might fit, with its characteristics, advantages, disadvantages, etc., I'd be happy to incorporate them into the campaign.
