|Semi-official character; seen in-game as a randomly generated Kerbal|
Kirrim Kerman is a semi-official character seen in an official Squad promo trailer titled "Selection Process". Kirrim appears briefly, having a mishap with an automatically extending flag which breaks the lights in the testing room, causing the camera to switch to nightvision.
Kirrim Kerman is likely a nod by Squad to “Special Agent Kirrim” – a character invented by KSP fan and YouTuber Danny2462. Danny introduced his character in his video "Messing Around in Kerbal Space Program 3" on 29 July 2012, a year before Squad's "Selection Process" video (24 July 2013). Given Kirrim's name and personality values (Courage and Stupidity), it's very likely he began as a randomly generated Kerbonaut who Danny happened to turn into a character.
Danny featured S.A. Kirrim in several videos in which we was a spy much like James Bond with exotic vehicles and dangerous missions. Other fan videos reinforced this parallel. Squad's depicting an applicant named Kirrim Kerman with the designation #0007 in the Selection Process likely plays on secret agent James Bond's code number "007", which again squares with Danny's Special Agent Kirrim.
