Assistant “to the“ Major is a rare Researcher. His ability is to give extra Comrades when trading Potatoes. Upgrading him is sometimes useful because you always want to have more comrades, but Potatoes do not give as much of a boost as the other resource trades.

He can be unlocked at  Rank 3

It appears that Assistant 'to the' Major is based on Dwight Schrute from the hit us tv series The Office who is an assistant to the regional manager at the paper company. Old Major is a pig in the book Animal Farm whose words inspire a communist-like rebellion by the animals.
