I think "colorful" would be a better term than obnoxious or stupid.
Would they be as interesting if they were by-the-book pilots? Realistic,
yes, but it would be boring. You need a contrast, especially with Kou and
Kieth's attitude. Monsha was the perfect
contrast to Kou, in some ways like Han Solo to Luke.
