  1. 1. Animal Farm Characters Compiled by Shraya and Shelby Edited by Kate
  2. 2. Old Major <ul><li>Old Major is a wise, well respected boar who is highly regarded by all the animals on the farm. </li></ul><ul><li>Old Major’s inspiring dream gives the animals the idea of Animalism, a new life where the animals rule themselves. </li></ul><ul><li>In Old Major’s dream, the animals are all happy and singing “Beasts of England,” an anthem that the animals adopt when they free themselves from the humans. </li></ul><ul><li>Old Major dies however three days after he gives his speech. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Napoleon <ul><li>Napoleon is a boar who is respected, but uses his threatening nature to get what he wants even though he is not much of a speech maker. For example, he changes the original Seven Commandments to suit his needs. </li></ul><ul><li>Napoleon works cooperatively with Snowball at the beginning because their goals are the same. As the story and his power grows, Napoleon turns against Snowball and exiles him to get full control of the farm. </li></ul><ul><li>While the animals think he is making life on the farm easier, Napoleon is turning the farm back into what it was under Mr. Jones, a tyranny. </li></ul><ul><li>Napoleon gets what he wants by using the terrifying threat of “Jones will come back” if the animals do not do as he says. </li></ul><ul><li>Napoleon plagiarizes Snowball’s idea of building the windmill and makes the animals believe that Snowball stole it from him. </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of the story, Napoleon becomes almost identical to the neighboring humans. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Snowball <ul><li>Snowball is a thoughtful, vivacious pig who thinks of all the animals on the farm, not just himself. </li></ul><ul><li>He comes up with the idea to build the windmill, which will make work easier around the farm. </li></ul><ul><li>Snowball and Napoleon’s constant disagreements lead to his expulsion from the farm. </li></ul><ul><li>Throughout the story, Napoleon spreads terrible rumors that manipulate the animals’ minds to think that he is better than Snowball. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Squealer <ul><li>Squealer is an energetic pig who is well known for his persuasive speeches. </li></ul><ul><li>While all the other animals are sleeping, Squealer changes the Seven Commandments to benefit the pigs rather than all the animals on the farm. </li></ul><ul><li>Squealer uses propaganda to promote and glorify Napoleon’s ideas while ruining Snowball’s reputation. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Clover <ul><li>Clover is a compassionate mare who symbolizes the motherly figure on the farm and makes life easier during the tough times. </li></ul><ul><li>Clover is suspicious of Napoleon and Squealer’s actions. She believes they do not really want to fulfill Old Major’s dream of animals ruling themselves. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Boxer <ul><li>Boxer is the strong, optimistic, hard-working cart-horse who motivates all the animals on the farm through the way he works and never gives up. </li></ul><ul><li>Boxer has two mottos that he lives and abides by: “I will work harder,” and “Napoleon is always right.” </li></ul><ul><li>Boxer eventually gets sent to the slaughter house after he injures himself working on the windmill. Squealer uses his persuasive nature to tell the animals that Boxer was actually sent to the hospital in Willingdon, but many do not believe him. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Benjamin <ul><li>Benjamin is the pessimistic, cynical donkey who realizes that life after the rebellion is exactly the way it was before. </li></ul><ul><li>Benjamin is not very loquacious except for when he talks to his good friend Boxer. </li></ul><ul><li>Benjamin represents the intelligent, cynical people in the world who can see right through fakes like Napoleon. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Mr. Jones <ul><li>Mr. Jones is the lethargic farmer who once owned Manor Farm, but the animals banish him because of his neglectful attitude towards them. </li></ul><ul><li>Napoleon and Squealer work together to create a daunting image of Mr. Jones, even though Napoleon and Jones’s methods of ruling are the same. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Mr. Frederick <ul><li>Mr. Frederick is the tough, shrewd farmer who owns the small and neat Pinchfield farm. </li></ul><ul><li>Mr. Frederick befriends Napoleon to cheat him out of the pile of timber and ends up knocking down the windmill and trying to take over the farm. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Mr. Pilkington <ul><li>Mr. Pilkington is the easy-going gentleman who owns the large and unorderly Foxwood farm. </li></ul><ul><li>Mr. Pilkington befriends Napoleon and starts trade agreements that benefit them both. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Mr. Whymper <ul><li>Mr. Whymper is the man who acts as the intermediary between Animal Farm and the outside world. </li></ul><ul><li>Mr. Whymper is responsible for all the financial matters along with the trade agreements that Napoleon makes with other farms. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Mollie <ul><li>Mollie is a prissy pony who prefers being pampered by humans over her independence. </li></ul><ul><li>Mollie gets angered because she cannot have ribbons and sugar, reminders of human rule, so she runs away to be a cart-horse in Willingdon. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Muriel <ul><li>Muriel is the white goat who always offers to read the Seven Commandments to Clover whenever Clover begins to suspect that the pigs violated one of the original rules. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Sheep <ul><li>The sheep are the animals in the story that can not think for themselves. They represent the people who follow the crowd. </li></ul><ul><li>The sheep soon pick up the motto “Four legs good, two legs bad.” After Napoleon comes to power and the pigs start to walk on two legs, this saying is changed to “Four legs good, two legs better.” </li></ul>
  16. 16. Moses <ul><li>Moses is Mr. Jones’ pet raven who acts as a spy for the humans. </li></ul><ul><li>Moses leaves Animal Farm after the rebellion, but soon returns; he does no work and fills the animals’ heads with false ideas such as Sugar Candy Mountain, animal Heaven. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Dogs <ul><li>Bluebell and Jessie, two of the dogs on the farm, had 9 puppies between the two of them. </li></ul><ul><li>These dogs are taken by Napoleon and raised in solitude to be trained as Napoleon’s guards. </li></ul><ul><li>The dogs first task was to expel Snowball from the farm. </li></ul><ul><li>The dogs escort Napoleon everywhere, giving him a frightening and slightly superior edge that allows him to get what he wants. </li></ul><ul><li>The dogs help carry out Napoleon’s requested executions of the animals who disobey his orders. </li></ul>
