Whilst his wife has yellow fur he has plain red fur and whilst he may have plain red fur but he also has a white face and muzzle making him look like he has a beard. In his first appearance he is a normal fox but in his return in the Anthro Saga he wears a white shirt, grey trousers and a grey marshall jacket but in Argentina he wears a white, red and blue checked shirt, brown trousers, navy blue braces and a brown coat. In his last appearance he wears brown trousers a light brown shirt with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows, a brown waistcoat and navy blue braces. As well as English and Macedonian Lazar speaks Arabic and Hebrew.
His colleagues describe Lazar as being "a general in pensioner's clothing" so called because he is a master of disguise chaning every disguise each time but the purpose is still the same. The disguise of an old man, in this disguise he appears frail but in actuality he is a skilled leader. His wife Maja says he is like Ho Chi Minh whilst his son Branko says he is like Uncle Albert and Lazar Wolf mainly because of his style of dress.
Lazar is often described by most of his enemies as being a butcher because of his experience with knives and also volunteers to be the executioner for Siad. He also has his mane shaved and shaves his mane during his time in captivity before he faces a firing squad but also adds much more bizarre and eccentric methods of humiliation one of them being "dead fish". In the method Siad and two Macedonian generals Johan and Metodija face an audience of the Junta's allies and the other generals themselves. Johan takes a dead fish and rubs it over Siad's face.
The lion is then made to kiss the fish before Johan hits him with it which proves to be a great source of entertainment for the Junta and it's allies but a great blow to Siad. Though he does seem eccentric he is really a wolf in sheep's clothing as perhaps no one else is as misleading as him. Nonetheless he does get along with the Junta's allies and later it's enemies. He is also good with young Junta children and the Junta babies but also enjoys babies in general.
