Simen Naavar Skjulerud is from the Police’s Security Service, PST. Exactly what title he holds is somewhat unclear as he only presents himself as Skjulerud from PST. Not uncommon among that lot as a whole. Like most plainclothes cops you can spot him a mile away. Shaved head, handlebar moustache , light blue shirt with flaps on both shoulders and pockets and yellow tinted glasses. Simen struggling with several phobias that make his working life more trying than most people’s. Fundamentalist Free Church congregations and accordion players from the sticks are just some of the phobias he struggles with poor thing. In addition to this, he gets easily sun burned, is very sensitive to sharp sounds of any sort and harbour a deep scepticism towards statements and testimony of any sort given by civilians. The last thing he shares with any member of the PST of course.
Simen Naavar Skjulerud is not surprisingly unmarried and enjoy fly tying, rose cultivation and bridge in his spare time. In addition, he collects vintage erotic films, photographs, books and magazines from the forties and fifties, a hobby he wisely keep from telling his colleagues about. Simen struggling to put away the gruff appearance he feels is necessary at work after hours and is of course not very popular among his neighbours and elsewhere around where he lives. This he accept with devastating calm and keep himself to himself and tinker with his hobbies.
Simen enjoy his work and the power he feels it gives him so long as it does not bring him into contact with accordionists or free church pastors and their congregations. Should his job bringing him into contact with both simultaneously the foundations of his sanity gets put to the test, which it did to excess during last years Titano Festival. In Simen’s eyes terrorists should be creepy foreigners of dubious origin and not blissfully grinning accordionists or indignant Free Church members. When these collide, the phobias makes havoc in poor Simen and makes his working day unpleasant and grey.
