The human mind is a powerful thing in many ways, but in others it's endlessly fragile - it takes only a single moment of pure terror to tear a hole in it, like a finger through a cobweb, leaving you forever just a shadow, a half-person.
~ Alexander Gordon Smith

These are villains who engage in psychological abuse - a form of abuse that inflicts emotional trauma rather than physical trauma. It can include anything from verbal abuse and constant criticism to more subtle tactics, such as intimidation, manipulation, and refusal to ever be pleased. As such, it can be considered, by definition, a form of torture.
