Swindell is a Bandit that lives in the East side of Rogueport in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Goombella has heard he's a thief but he's never been seen stealing. He spends time whispering to Arfur, a Doogan, about something unknown. Swindell's name is a pun on "swindle," a verb that means "to steal" or to "to cheat out of something." It could also be a pun on the Norwegian word "svindel" which means "scam."
Swindell seems to be a supporter of Ishnail and does not like the actions of the Pianta Syndicate led by Don Pianta. However, he admits that he has neither seen Ishnail, Don or the Don's successor, Frankie. At the end of the game, he decides that neither of them are as good as Mario.
