Security system installer

.

Leslie Girder was a security system installer who installed a high-security door in the bookshop Black Books after a group of youths broke in. He suffers from a severe lisp, and sometimes people find it difficult to understand what he is saying. He also has the amazing ability to calculate the amount of points of entry into a building in a matter of seconds, and is also able to use this ability to gain access into an area.

In 2000, he was hired by Manny Bianco to install a high-security door in Black Books after a group of youths had broken in. This door used an incredibly long password to open, and, as Manny was distracted by a Subbuteo player in Girder's hair, he quickly forgot the password, leading to a night of misery for Bernard Black.
