There are a lot of categories on there (and I'm impressed), but the one I was thinking of doesn't seem to fit cleanly into any of them. It goes like this:

This person rats out another person simply because he or she feels this is what he or she is supposed to do. After ratting out this other person, he or she resumes daily life like nothing ever happened. There is no grudge, no negative emotions, nothing, possibly not even a personal connection. Just a sense of duty to maintain the status quo. Possibly, but not necessarily, this person believes authority is inherently good and should not be questioned or defied at all, or if there are two clashing authorities, the one that came first is the one that's right.

I've made a new category for it. Feel free to remove it if it DOES align with one of the others.

Can we add alternate gender nicknames for each of the subcategories (i. e. Petty Patty)? I think that would make sense.

Or at the very least add "Stool Pigeon" as an alt title to "The Stool Pigeon"? That would make the most sense.
