Though if you're using him as the archetypal "dumb muscle", I suppose that works. rule of funny.
It's kinda a mix. Herc was divinely lucky. . . and overconfident. So, stupid plans sound great to him. He's also dumb muscle, when needed, for rule of funny.

"Do I want to know what happened?"

(four brothers in unison)

"No!"

Lissa: "I'm a cute and friendly magical abomination"

Frank: *lets Scarlet lead on the talking, since she has those nice masterwork quality words.*

Frank: "Wow, that was kind of quick on the draw, there. Isn't it traditional to have a mysterious hooded figure give a vague but threatening warning, first?"
Scarlet: "I'll consider that this group is absolutely terrible at spycraft as part of my analysis."

Phantasm: [ He's shaken, not stirred, by Lissa. And then he spurts out, "bricked up house... need to bring food tomorrow!" before collapsing in her arms.
Lissa: "Ooh. That sounds like a clue! We better get the turnips for it"

Lissa: " . . . I guess I carry him?"
Frank: "I'll carry him. It's rude to make a lady carry her own drunkards."

Not a quote exactly, but GM's summary of our space campaigns latest session

So there you are, on the flat roof of a building (on a hilltop in the middle of nowhere), surrounded by an unknown number of cultists firing poison arrows at you, while the insane(?) computer(?) running the building threatens to send more ďneutraloidsĒ (bio-engineered golems with a 12d6 punch) against you, which you canít escape because of the metal bars across the main door and the electrified fence which got closed behind you. (Our shuttle being on the other side of said fence, without anyone aboard) Oh, and some of the plant growth in the building is inhabited by pinkish snake-worm-eel things with needle-sharp teeth that attack in boiling swarms. Maybe itís the radiation from the ancient reactor thatís doing it to them.

What could possibly go wrong?

"I am NEVER leaving the ship again" -- my engineer upon seeing the seething mass of snake-worm-eels pursuing us.
