Simon is at his 60's and back in old good days was a great detective in police forces. Back then ways were different. Cops did walk the streets and talk to people. Even bribed for information letting little fish go to catch the big ones. Times changed, police force started to keep an eye on cops with shady methods. Even if those did make results.
In late 80's when computers started to take place replacing the traditional detectives work, Simon tried to learn the new ways of investigation. But computers didn't have the same feel than going into a bar, taking a few drinks and talk to people. Or go to an alley and beat the shit out of a drug dealer just to get bigger dealer's name.
Simon blames, that computers ruined his career. He never got into the fastly rolling wheel of advanced technology. He hated sitting in his office staring flickering computer screen and quit the job.
Few years he was depressed, and started to drink. One day his friend asked Simon to find his lost stripper girlfriend and Simon started to investigate it. He thought, that this would be the last time. But he enjoyed it like in good ol' days.
Not long after that Simon started his own private detective's office.

(Note: Made few modifications in character creation, what I saw didn't work. Mostly point buy system's starting points and calculation of secondary attributes.)
