Seychelles is described as a country girl with a big heart who can sometimes be sloppy. She can't cook on her own and laments over her high cost of living. During the '''Christmas 2010 Event''', Seychelles asks [[Finland]] to send her food in exchange for a picture. Her cooking style is described as adding spices and salted dry fish in any cuisine and is said to eat pickled, dried fish that can be stored for long periods of time. She enjoys inviting guests and doesn't like going out much, with rumour that it's because she can't pick up the kind of pickled fish she likes.
She has made two appearances in '''Hetalia: World Series''' and in '''Hetalia: The Beautiful World'''. In '''We're Shipwrecked Too! '''she is talking about eating fish with France as he decides to go on an "aimless trip to a southern island." In''' United States of Hetalia 2,''' it is revealed that the island where both the Allies and Axis have been repeatedly seen/trapped is in fact the island of Seychelles herself.

In her [[Gakuen Hetalia]] appearance, she fears attending a new academy because she lacks talent and confidence. She claims to have once been rich and strong, but has become poor and useless. Seychelles believes that her only abilities are to sing, dance, and make souvenirs. Seychelles is conflicted over her feelings for both France and England; the former raised her and makes sexual advances, while the latter is aggressive and dominant. Seychelles does not have fond feelings for her coat of arms, and she is laughed at in her Africa class due to its outlandish appearance.

Personality And Interests

Seychelles is described as a country girl with a big heart who can sometimes be sloppy. She can't cook on her own and laments over her high cost of living. During the Christmas 2010 Event, Seychelles asks Finland to send her food in exchange for a picture. Her cooking style is described as adding spices and salted dry fish in any cuisine and is said to eat pickled, dried fish that can be stored for long periods of time. She enjoys inviting guests and doesn't like going out much, with rumour that it's because she can't pick up the kind of pickled fish she likes.

Her language is a unique type of French, mixing both French and English. During her cameo in Comic Diary 9, Seychelles, after overhearing other nations mention their stereotypes and reputations, rants that people do not know of her existence. In United States of Hetalia 2, it is revealed that the island where both the Allies and Axis have been repeatedly stranded is the island of Seychelles.

In her Gakuen Hetalia appearance, she fears attending a new academy because she lacks talent and confidence. She claims to have once been rich and strong, but has become poor and useless. Seychelles believes that her only abilities are to sing, dance, and make souvenirs.
