Subcategory of 4? The master is (emotionally) stupid and leaves
everything in the hands of servants because he/she just doesn't care.
Mr Craven of _The Secret Garden_ being a good example.
How about Estelle in _Great Expectations_? Not a servant, but (like
Mordion) someone raised/trained for a specific end, and successfully
so, but at a cost for the would-be-user also.
