    Did this with Star wars and had a to of fun and thought it would be interesting to compare George Orwell's Animal Farm to Devinity, while also comparing the both of them to something else. (If you don't know what I mean you're ELA/Lit teacher failed big time):

    Napoleon - @Donkie

    Snowball - @Bayrock

    Old Major - The idea of Devinity itself/@Bender

    Boxer - @Decap

    Squealer - @CounterCraftz

    Clover - @Alex

    Benjamin - @abc

    Napoleon's 9 Dogs:

    - @Applcore5
    - @Jacob
    - @Rollie
    - @Roflcopter Rogers
    - @The_Eboler
    - @Taki'Asha
    - @The Catalyst.
    - @Noriaki Cocaine
    - @jeffreythe00

    The 4 Pigs:

    - @Ethan
    - @Mapplesauce
    - @SilverMario
    - @Xpanix

    Muriel - @Dawson

    Minimus - @Dr. Pit Lazarus

    Mollie - @Firedraft

    Mr. Frederick - SSG (Just a joke)

    Note: None of these are based completely on the character's actions in the book but by the attributes and personalities. Also, I picked each member/staff for each role for a reason, no of which are offensive, if you don't understand you're character-match-up i'd be more than happy to explain to you.

    Might add more as I think.

    I read the book, never watched the movie. Can't imagine someone making something like this a good movie.

    Sure! You've been quite auspicious but at the same time with an edge of rebellion. It's nothing bad about you but you see the rules in your own sort of take and you're not one to just absorb someone else's opinions of them if you get what I mean.

    does the part where you get killed and turned into glue also seem like it


    also @Applcore5 I don't understand, are these the characteristics of the animals at the end of the book? the pigs' personalities change immensely torwards the end of the book with the possible exception of Napoleon

    Pretty sure Benjamin would be Bayrock given his tendencies to stay out of drama. Snowball's character would be Donkie, given that snowball was the main leader who pushed for technological advances and Donkies our main programmer. He DEFINITELY wouldn't be the corrupt bastard that doesn't allow any humor and is extremely brutal and savage in methods. I mean hell Napolean is literally designed after Stalin, doesn't suit Donkies personality at all.

    Dawson should be minimus, he writes extremely formally and isn't a one dimensional character made literally to just say the commandments to clover.

    Idk how we would be the pigs given that the pigs were power hungry and corrupt, meanwhile all the pigs you mentioned are jr mods who don't rlly give a shit about promotion.

    Mollies a retarded horse who was obsessed with her human garments and ornaments, how is that Firedraft at all?

    Rick being Benjammin is a joke. Benjammin is a character meant to portray the citizens who didn't give a shit about anything. The main point is he's smart but does nothing. Rick is rowdy, at the very least, and doesn't suit Benjammin at all.

    Shit needs a revamp

    Mine:

    Napoleon - @Alex (top lel)

    Snowball- @Donkie

    Old Major - The idea of Devinity itself/@Bender

    Boxer - @IceSeasons

    Squealer - @Decap

    Clover - @jeffreythe00

    Benjamin - @Bayrock

    Napoleon's 9 Dogs:

    - @Applcore5
    - @Jacob
    - @Rollie
    - @Roflcopter Rogers
    - @The_Eboler
    - @Taki'Asha
    - @The Catalyst.
    - @CounterCraftz
    - @Xpanix

    The 4 Pigs:

    All other pigs are one dimensional, they're just power hungry savage fuckbags and using them to describe anyone in devinity doesn't work and it also is insulting

    Muriel - too one dimensional

    Minimus - @Dawson

    Mollie - @GeeuhduhOX

    Not enough characters with any actual characteristics to describe everyone significant in devinity.

    I mean, in the first place there is someone inherently wrong with describing a community with characters from a satirical allegory on motherfucking Soviet Union

    Mollie's the one who was caught several times doing wrong things and eventually flees knowing that'd she'd be facing consequences if she stayed Firedraft didn't have a choice but similar situations). Benjamin's a wise donkey that resented Animalism (Idea of Devinity) and the way the two leaders ran things but stuck around, can't see how that would be Bayrock. Snowball really was the one to design the windmill (Devinity) but Napoleon added more in the end and in a way expanded on the subject. As I said before I wasn't comparing anything to the character's actions just their traits, so the fact that Napolean became evil and what not had really nothing to do with this. Minimus is Pit because the creativity and design (I myself considered giving this to Dawson) but because Pit designed the new map and such I used it as a simile to how Minimus created the new song. Also the pigs I talked about were the four that were slaughtered, they didn't make it to the ned of the book because of their rebellious nature and how they were skeptical of how things were run. Last part there is hypocritical as you just did the exact same thing.

    You realize you're saying that you aren't judging them based on their actions yet you are doing just that, right?

    You seriously don't care that Napoleon's whole personality is all about how he was a power hungry douchebag? To justify yourself, you state his actions rather than his actual personality by saying Napoleon added some to the table, which he didn't anyway. He was suggested to be always evil, considering he took the dogs in to make them the KGB attack dogs starting in the beginning of the book. Napolean didn't offer anything anyway, yeah he got the windmill built but snowball was the one who made the blueprints. He didn't do jack shit, just made pigs have even more power over the other animals. There is no technological improvement he has implemented, he only proved to be retarded by getting fooled by the book's equivalent of hitler is a scam. There's no simularities between Donkie and Napoleon.

    Benjamin wasn't even a leader and he DID NOT do anything. That is exactly the point of his character, he symbolizes the wise majority of citizens in Russia that didn't speak up or give a shit when everything was happening. Benjamin only said simply "Things will always be bad for us." The only time he did anything was state that Boxer was going to be taken to the knackers, and after that he didn't do anything. Yeah Bayrock has done a lot more but that is specifically actions which you said wouldn't be included in this thread.

    Minimus was hardly a good designer or whatever, he was seriously just a writer. The way he writes is reminiscent of Dawson's formal and smart approach in writing. Then you state what he did is similar to what pit did, but that is examining his actions which is again what you said you wouldn't do.

    I don't remember any pigs dying from being rebellious, hell the whole damn point of the book is that the pigs were supreme and took down any rebellions. Even then how do they have any personality?

    Mollie was a stupid horse at only cared about her own looks and loved adorning herself in ornaments. That is her personality. That has nothing to do with Firedraft. Yeah she might have ran away from the farm but again that is an action rather than a character trait which is again what you said you wouldn't do.

    It seems like you haven't read the novel in a while so you're misremembering a lot of things. I read it recently again (one month ago) and made an essay on it so I kinda remember basically everything that happens in that damn book.
