Later that night, Mr. Frederick[AH], being the tough, shrewd operator that he was found himself unable to sleep. His head filled with ideas long beyond their best by date. His own farm compared to that of Manor Farm was a smaller operation and had been for many years. But things had been changing in his favor. And thus begins the fateful tale of a slight man with not only a funny little mustache, but an idea; a vision and plan that almost seems attainable in light of current events.
Mr. Jones – The often drunk farmer who runs the Manor Farm before the animals stage their Rebellion and establish Animal Farm. Mr. Jones is an unkind master who indulges himself while his animals lack food; he thus represents Tsar Nicholas II, whom the Russian Revolution ousted.
Mr. Frederick – 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 proves an untrustworthy neighbor.
Mr. Pilkington – The easygoing gentleman farmer who runs Foxwood, a neighboring farm. Mr. Frederick’s bitter enemy, Mr. Pilkington represents the capitalist governments of England and the United States.
