DEBUT 1999

Moses is a tame raven in Animal Farm. Moses is the particular pet of Jones, and is shocked when Boxer fells the master, breaking the code of animals.

After the revolution, Moses returns, becoming an ally of Napoleon and the pigs, who ply him with liquor. The raven continually speaks to the other animals of Sugar Candy Mountain, a place where rewards will await them in the next life, which the pigs use as a means of distracting them from the miseries of their present condition. In the original George Orwell novel, Moses was intended as a critique of the church, which the author perceived as a tool of dictators to give the working class false hope.
