Swiss Confederation (Schweizerische Eidgenossenschaft) Human Name
Heidi Zwingli Age
Like her male counterpart, Heidi has mint green eyes and bright blonde hair, though rather than having it cut into a shoulder length bob, she wears hers much longer in one big plat (or braid). Her unifrom consists of a dark green Jacket, brown pants and brown leather boots, which she wears daily, and due to certain ... interests... she is often seen with a gun slung over her shoulder, much to the dismay of some.
Personality and Interests
There's a word that's known to many when they would think of Switzerland, and that word is ''Neutral.'' To Switzerland, her neutrality is very important and she works hard to maintain it, sometimes going to extreme lengths just to protect it, *cough* Italians *cough*. Due to this (and the fact her home is surrounded by the Alps) she has become somewhat of a hermit, and before meeting Liechtenstein, would much rather chose her own company over that of others. She can appear hostile, and sometimes even rude, when first speaking to her, but if someone were to get close to her, she will eventually open up to them and express a bit more passion over the things she likes. She also has a tendancy to get embarrased when she recieves compliments and fails toreconises when someone if just being a flirt, and ends up being easily flustered.
Although she still shares similar views to her male counterpart when it comes to saving money, she is slightly less stingy, and will often return home with small
treats for Liechtenstein; her way of showing affection. The only time she would really splash out on the cash is when buying guns for her collection, which is, to say the least, quite extensive.
Guns are probably her biggest passion and she shows she has quite the skill when handelling them. The only down side to this is she tends to become trigger happy, mostly when trying to protect her Neutrality, or to her more importantly, Liechtenstein.
