A definition of Prata

The editor of The Monument, Elizabeth Prata, is a very complicated person. But there are some actions about her that we can define.

She is the self-proclaimed watchdog of Gray.

She is the self-proclaimed "arbiter of what's right."

She does not admit to having any biases.

She sends emails at all hours of day and night, often at 3 or 4 o'clock in the morning.

She is extremely defensive, and consistently replies to emailed letters to the editor to explain to the sender why and how the sender is wrong.

Her published articles sometimes stray from the important points, and she often fails to report all the facts.

I wonder what kind of personality these actions define?
