    a leopard cannot change it's spots

    I understand this idiom is used to describe an undesirable, negative aspects of a person's character. Is there a similar idiom used to describe a neutral or positive aspects of a person's character, other than 'it's in his/her blood'?

    ITS spots. It's = it is, not its. You could say "He hasn't got a mean bone in his body."
