Zig Zagged: Lareneg's uniform is showy, meaning he can be used to distract the enemy, but he puts his own life in danger by doing this, so sometimes he swaps out his showy and distracting uniform for something more practical. Sometimes he even puts someone else in his flashy uniform to draw fire away from the real thing.
Averted: Lareneg wears a relatively normal uniform.
Exploited: Half of Lareneg's Praetorian Guard are garbed in anachronistic glittery dress uniforms, and march right beside him. This draws the eye away from the drab, civilian-clothed bodyguards flanking him at a more discreet distance and ready to pounce on any attempted attacker.
Defied: Lareneg has a Custom Uniform that has all the markings to confirm he is, in fact, a general, but it's less gaudy than a general's usual outfit, so he's not as obvious a target.
"How do we know which one's Lareneg?" "Assuming the sun is up, you shouldn't have a problem."
Lareneg worries about making himself such a target, but knows his men will fight better if they can easily spot him leading from the front.
Related to the above, Lareneg has cultivated a reputation as an unbelievably badass general capable of winning against seemingly impossible odds. By making his presence on the field obvious, he demoralizes his enemies and encourages and inspires his men.
Back to Bling of War, sir, and permission to speak freely? The live birds may be a bit much, sir.
