Modest and mannerly at a first glance. He doesn't like to fight and even seems to place himself below others. Swiss appears sweet and generous, since inheriting his father's fortune. Often giving roses and other gifts to ponies he meets for the first time. Doing so as an introduction; out of chivalry and courtesy. Not one to flirt, he prefers to be thought of as a gentleman. During a civil argument he tries to be diplomatic and won't walk away. A physical fight is another thing, though.. He's soft spoken, but he's never afraid to speak his mind. Even if it gets him into trouble. Despite his attempts to appear humble, he's actually quite self-centered. Vain, needy and unadaptive at times. Deep down, he is a timid pony. Even a coward. He's first to call a bluff, but also first to run from danger. Since he's not used to being depended on, he's easily intimidated. He hates being a leader in any way. Swiss lives with his father and their servants in a small manor on the edge of Trottingham. He knows little about the world and the various creatures that inhabit it, because he lived a sheltered life. From time to time he's visited Canterlot and Ponyville by carriage; or stopped by to see the scenery of the Great Nimbusgait Lakes and Whitetail Wood for inspiration for his hobbies or for relaxation. He realized he wanted to make sweets when he saw Sugarcube Corner in Ponyville. Swiss immediately asked his personal chef to teach him and got him started on earning his cutie mark. He has always liked swirly and curvy shapes, which is why Swiss curls his mane regularly. For this same reason he decided to try making a swiss roll, out of all of the recipes. When it was finished it had come out perfectly and he even got his cutie mark. Swiss enjoys working in a calm atmosphere, only working for fun. His father's income is more than enough to live on, so his jobs are all part-time hobbies. Mainly he works as a patisserie, because he enjoys the taste and cuteness of sweets. For the same reason of artistic expression he has a part-time job at the florist. Arranging flowers, but leaving the dirty work up to gardeners. Both of his jobs give him the chance to make gifts for other ponies. At home he dislikes studying, but does some research when he's writing. He hasn't published anything, but likes writing poetry and composing music in his free time. He uses a feather quill and ink on parchment for writing. Playing string instruments such as the harp and violin, singing and painting are his other hobbies. Preferring to sing and play when he's alone, not many know of this talent except for him. He doesn't make friends easily, but he doesn't like being alone. In fact, Swiss can be somewhat monophobic; scared when left alone somewhere unfamiliar. Even having servants and a rich father, he was lonely as a colt. Which is why he attempts to make gifts with his jobs and hobbies, in hopes of befriending other ponies. Though he likes romanticism in art, poetry and novels; he's too shy and effeminate to find a mate. He dislikes the typical expectations of male ponies and isn't just incapable of being physically strong, he refuses to. Hypocritically, he doesn't find effeminate or weak female ponies attractive. In fact, he's more than a bit annoyed by and jealous of the typical damsels in distress.. Swiss's father works at the Kingdom of Canterlot. It's currently unknown what type of work his father does or has done. The only other ponies who live in his manor are servants, some including unicorns for their ability to move things with ease. When Swiss was a colt and was too young to stay home alone, his father would let him visit his cousin Cinnabon at her summer house in Coralwood Corral when he made business trips.
