Animal Farm Char.

DescriptionCharacter
Based on Joseph Stalin, the pig who emerges as the leader of Animal Farm after the Rebellion. He uses military force to intimidate the other animals and consolidate his power. Napoleon
Based on Leon Trotsky, the pig who challenges Napoleon for control of Animal Farm after the Rebellion. He is intelligent, passionate, eloquent, and less subtle and devious than his counterpart, Napoleon. Snowball
The dim-witted cart-horse whose incredible strength, dedication, and loyalty play a key role in the early prosperity of Animal Farm and the later completion of the windmill. Boxer
The pig who spreads Napoleon’s propaganda among the other animals. Orwell uses this character to explore the ways in which those in power often use rhetoric and language to twist the truth and gain and maintain social and political control. Squealer
The prize-winning boar whose vision of a socialist utopia serves as the inspiration for the Rebellion. This character is based on both the German political economist Karl Marx and the Russian revolutionary leader Vladimir Ilych Lenin. Old Major
A good-hearted female cart-horse and Boxer’s close friend. She often suspects the pigs of violating one or another of the Seven Commandments, but she repeatedly blames herself for misremembering the commandments. Clover
The tame raven who spreads stories of Sugarcandy Mountain, the paradise to which animals supposedly go when they die. He plays only a small role, but Orwell uses him to explore how communism uses religion as something with which to pacify the oppressed. Moses
The vain mare who pulls Mr. Jones’s carriage. She craves the attention of human beings and loves being groomed and pampered. She represents the petit bourgeoisie that fled from Russia a few years after the Russian Revolution. Mollie
The long-lived donkey who refuses to feel inspired by the Rebellion. He firmly believes that life will remain unpleasant no matter who is in charge. Benjamin
The white goat who reads the Seven Commandments to Clover whenever Clover suspects the pigs of violating their prohibitions. Muriel
The often drunk farmer who runs the Manor Farm before the animals stage their Rebellion and establish Animal Farm. He is an unkind master who indulges himself while his animals lack food; he represents Tsar Nicholas II, whom the Russian Revolution ousted. Mr. Jones
The tough, shrewd operator of Pinchfield, a neighboring farm. Based on Adolf Hitler, the ruler of Nazi Germany in the 1930s and 1940s. Mr. Frederick
The easygoing gentleman farmer who runs Foxwood, a neighboring farm. He represents the capitalist governments of England and the United States. Mr. Pilkington
The human solicitor whom Napoleon hires to represent Animal Farm in human society. Mr. Whymper
A dog who gives birth early in the novel. Napoleon takes the puppies in order to “educate” them. Jessie
A dog who gives birth early in the novel. Napoleon takes the puppies in order to “educate” them. Bluebell
The poet pig who writes verse about Napoleon and pens the banal patriotic song “Animal Farm, Animal Farm” to replace the earlier idealistic hymn “Beasts of England,” which Old Major passes on to the others. Minimus
Created by: Mr. Taylor
