OK. What I was really after is: What's the data type of the database
field, and most importantly, what's the Python data type that gets
retrieved?

I'm guessing the database field is some flavor of character. In
Python, I can imagine a few possibilities (I don't have easy access to
your combination of CCSID 65535 and Python to test for myself).
Hopefully you have type `bytes` or possibly `bytearray`. Then it is a
simple matter to use the `decode` method. However, if you have `str`,
then it could be tricky.
