comment A word for a person who is made a villain by their circumstances, not necessarily by their actions
If we're accepting TVTropes as a source, you might be looking for the Punch Clock Villain or the Minion with an F in Evil.

comment What does “binder” mean? Why did it become a political buzzword?
@YoichiOishi the impossibility of a literal interpretation is a good summary of the joke itself - it was obvious what he meant, but he said something painfully easy to intentionally misunderstand.

comment What's a word for somebody you’ve never met?
But it's much better than, say, mentor or teacher. It's used similarly to role model, but with the added sense that they're more than just a personal inspiration, but that they exemplify the highest quality of a certain characteristic. It also carries some of the larger-than-life, admired-from-afar aspect that the OP asked for. If this person were an excellent moral compass or engineer, it would be valid to call them a paragon of morality or a paragon of engineering just as much as a role model!
