enforcer (n., adj.)
Applies toheadmates

An enforcer is a sub-type of persecutor who enforces the “lessons” learned through abuse against members of their own system. They may punish members of the system or the body with physical or emotional pain for disobeying the desires of abusers. This type of role does not often happen spontaneously; it’s nearly always forcefully created by abusers who tell them that if they don’t do this job, the system will be hurt worse.
