Eskild is a quirky, hilarious and confident gay male, he is proud of who he is and is very open.

Physical Appearance

Eskild is a tall, slender guy of medium build, he has blue eyes and short red hair.




Eskild is seen very proud of Isak when he announces he and Even are a thing, but later Eskild is disappointed because of Isak's comments on other gay men, like Eskild. He educates Isak on gay pride and the two of them are seen a bit at odds. Isak later goes to Eskild for advice, which pleases Eskild. He titles himself Isak's guru. After the hotel, Eskild cancels his plan to return home and be there for Isak.



Even and Eskild's friendship started when Even started spending time at the Kollektiv. Their first run-in was in the bathroom, and later Eskild talks to Isak about Even coming over in the future. When Isak explains Even's behaviour recently, going back to Sonja, Eskild states few men leave their girlfriends. After Even and Isak reunite, Eskild and Noora are in the kitchen where Even is cooking. Eskild appears very hospitable towards Even, and when he lands into his depression, Eskild sets up a plan to get the Kollektiv to watch over Even, including reports. In the end of Season 3 they are seen hanging the mistletoe, laughing.
