Winston Smith The novel's protagonist. Unlike Winston, Julia sees life simply, and is interested only in her survival and personal rebellion against the Party - not in long-term plans for the resurgence of democracy.

White always mates, he thought with a sort of cloudy mystycism. Ultimately, though, he is faced with his greatest fear, a mask holding hungry rats to his face. She shows Winston, who once imagined raping and killing her, that the Party cannot get to the most intimate places in a human being's mind; she is his proof that the feelings that he has been having are valid.
