Who is Ron Swanson? He has an extremely deadpan and masculine personality, actively works to make city hall less effective and despises interacting with the public. He loves meat, hunting and breakfast foods. He hates and fears his two ex-wives, one of whom, Tammy (also his mother's name and who he married and divorced twice in the series). Ron claims not to be interested in the personal lives of those around him but actually cares a great deal about his colleagues.
