Imagine a hero in a sword and sorcery fantasy setting who is a quiet scholar. He tries to be a nice guy, but is rather naive and unsure of himself. As a result, the villains think he's a stupid pushover whom they can easily kill to serve their plans. However they when try that, they learn to their sorrow the hard way that the scholar got a comprehensive education that includes combat and strategy training which he studied with the same diligence as his intellectual subjects. As a result, especially when his friends and/or ideals are threatened, he is a master warrior who can outfight and outwit any foe who dumb enough to challenge him. Is this character type is common enough to list?
