For the obedient one, consider adjective docile ("Yielding to control or supervision, direction, or management. Ready to accept instruction or direction") or its synonyms malleable, meek, submissive, tractable for one sense and amenable, compliant, teachable for another. Also conformable may serve (as in cited example "I have been to you a true and humble wife, at all times to your will conformable") or menial ("servile, slavish, subservient, obsequious or submissive").
I'd call that person obedient
