Little is known about Orwell.
Hank McCoy was a fan of Animal Farm. When he was sent to prison following the X-Men's attack on the Mutant Control Agency, he was allowed a copy of the book. He was reading it when to prison guards saw and, due to his blue animal-like appearance, thought it was about animals. He only paused to read when Magneto entered his cell in an attempt to free him.
Orwell did not appear in any series, merely his name on the title of a book.
Orwellian is a term used to describe a societal condition identified as being destructive to the welfare of a free and open society. It denotes an attitude and a brutal policy of draconian control by propaganda, surveillance, misinformation, denial of truth, and manipulation of the past, including the "unperson." These themes are common in X-Men stories.
