In Animal Farm, Orwell uses the various animals and people to represent actual people or groups of people from the Russian Revolution.

Boxer represents the working class.  He is the backbone of the society but is abused.  He is also fooled by Napoleon into being totally devoted.

Benjamin represents intellectuals who know things are wrong but don't care enough to do anything about it.

Mollie represents people who care only about material things and do not care at all about justice or freedom.

The dogs represent the secret police and others who provided the terror that helped keep Stalin in power.
