Napoleon (GRESSER)
“Napoleon emerged from the farmhouse, wearing both his medals,with his nine huge dogs frisking round him and uttering growls that  sent shivers down all the animals' spines.” “Napoleon was now never spoken of simply as 'Napoleon.' He wasalways referred to in formal style as 'our Leader, ComradeNapoleon,' and the pigs liked to invent for him such titles as Father of all Animals, Terror of Mankind, Protector of the Sheepfold,Ducklings' Friend, and the like.” 
A wise man once said, 'Power corrupts. Absolute power corruptsabsolutely.' Is it ever just to have a single person have absolutecontrol? Why is power so seductive? Does it bring out the best orthe worst in people?Choose Napoleon to explore notions of power, control and thecorruptive influence of absolute power.
Snowball (DEL VALLE)
“Comrade,” said Snowball, “those ribbons that you are so devoted to are the badge of slavery. Can you not understand that liberty isworth more than ribbons?” 
What are the responsibilities of government? Are good intentionsenough for successful leadership? Can a single person make a realsocial difference?Choose Snowball to explore notions of democracy and the power of the individual to lead society.
