Archaic expression of shock or suprise. Derives from "God's wounds". As with similar archaisms, "Zwounds" is used in jocular contexts by tedious nerds with intellectual pretentions.
Zwounds, sir! Dash it all!

An alcoholic (euphemism). Used by local newspapers when reporting the death of winos. Usually a "character" is of no fixed abode, or at least of very limited means.

Respectable dead alcoholics, by contrast, are merely "convivial"; even if they are crazed ranters they would be "convivial and garrulous".
"Mr Brew was a popular local character, normally to be found by the war memorial in the high street".
