Benito is an Animalian politician and former soldier currently serving under the Animalian Patriotic Front.
He was named after former Italian fascist Benito Mussolini
He is an anthropomorphic Spinone Italiano (Italian Spinone) who is yet another male dog who wears military style clothing in his soldier days alongside Georgios, Yahya and Zia. However in his case he is said to be like Benito Mussolini which leads to all sorts of legends about him. In his government time though he is just as immaculate as he wears a white shirt, black trousers and a black jacket with a black tie like a Victorian outfit.
All the members of the A.P.F and their allies and enemies are powerful on their own accord but what separates Benito is his powerfulness makes him the dog of legend alongside Saloth. He is just as close to Francesco as some of the second closest generals in the Fox Junta such as Augusto and Jorge with the Junta's leader Roberto. He can be slightly favoritistic trusting Francesco, Antonio and Gaetano when he first met them simply because they are also Italian however he is a calm but fiery speaker.
Even before his government time he likes to follow formalities however though this is the case for him he does not see why Siad should get a fair trial, just as Zoe opens relations with Kenan who is Turkish Benito is responsible for opening friendships with the Spanish dog Alberto which is understandable because Italy and Spain are both romance countries, even though he is Italian he also befriends many Latin American members of the Fox Junta. Unlike most members of the A.P.F who often cause curiosity in most young children mainly the Junta babies because of their age Benito causes great curiosity in Bella but fear in her mother who remembers his style as being that of Mussolini, Sebastiano also appears to remember him revering him as a dog of legend but even so Benito causes as much curiosity in the Junta babies as the Spanish dogs.
Not only is Benito friendly with the other Latin American generals but he is also friendly with Jorge and the National Protection Process. Despite most parent's fears of him he is actually good with young Junta children and the Junta babies even though Lucia and her husband are actually good with the babies being around him. In his government time Benito has no change.
