Race: Palman (Biologist)
Hugh's a biologist, and when you first meet him, you'll want to include him in your group. In the first half of the game, he will be very helpful, using such techniques as Vol and Sagen to kill off any organic creatures you encounter. After the fight with Neifirst, however, most of your enemies will be mechanical, and at that point, he won't be of much use. You'll want to trade him in for Kain. But, before that, include him when you go to Roron or any other dungeon, so he can wipe the screen clean.
In combat, Hugh should help your party with supportive offense techniques, like Gen. He shouldn't fight hand-to-hand at all unless he doesn't have much TP left. Even at that point, have him heal other people, regardless of whether Amy is with you or not.
Hugh isn't a very strong fighter, much like Amy. You should give him two acid shots if you want him to fight at all. I don't think he can use fire staffs or silent shots, so rely on him mainly for technique power. Do buy him a laser knife when you reach Zema. It will give him some attacking strength at least. He should also carry a mirror shield, a highly effective defensive barrier.
