Compared to other generals who have red or blue fur some even going further to have yellow fur his fur is white and he has a blue underbelly a shell of his wife who's fur is striped. In his first appearance he is a normal fox but in his return in the Anthro Saga he wears a light blue shirt and compared to the other generals wears black trousers, a black jacket and a black tie often making some believe he is in mourning though he insists he isn't.
Fructuoso is just as protective of his wife as he is of his children as they are the only babies in the Junta almost to the point of him being sacrificial and it is this that leads to his extermination in the nightmare experienced by his wife and children. Because he is the father of babies Fructuoso is just as parental as his wife and just as loving and protective as the other generals who have children be they young children like his friend Leopoldo or older children like the Bosnian general Dragutin, though he may be very protective of his children but during Josefina and Santiago's first days in the Junta he shows them off. Unfortunately most of the generals prove to scare them.
To his enemies though Fructuoso is a completely different character. He is a ruthless foe who takes no chances with enemies and it is this that makes him a participant in a coup which captures Siad, Olivia and Rachel and frees Cristina from Trebdanek, most of the generals say that he also has parallels with the Bolivian general Hugo as he too believes Siad should not have a defense and also has the belief that he does not deserve a fair trial. When Roberto asks him why Fructuoso replies with "His Junta does not provide the right to a fair trial. So why should we?" Eventually the defense is dissolved.
He is also very unpredictable and like the Macedonian general Lazar if there is one word to characterize Fructuoso it's being a master of betrayal except that whilst Lazar often adopts a disguise that his wife Maja says makes him look like Uncle Albert so does Fructuoso but he rarely uses a disguise and instead uses his personality. As many of his enemies see he may be a hero but he is a very dark character saying to Siad "Death is always more frightening when it strikes". His wife Lucia also says that to his enemies he often acts like the Master when he was played by Roger Delgado and though this is the case Fructuoso often disguises himself as an old man as well but his clothing is more modernized.
