An informal single word as asked for could be, as Lexico gives, a


2 informal A very virtuous, kind, or patient person.

As a phrase, the person could be called a paragon of virtue. Lexico says


1 A person or thing regarded as a perfect example of a particular quality.
it would have taken a paragon of virtue not to feel viciously jealous

The Lexico entry for virtue is


1 Behaviour showing high moral standards.
The man was one of great virtue, and his morals were admired by everyone.


Tough one, maybe a god? But on a much serious note you can use words like unblemished, immaculate, flawless, letter-perfect, picture-perfect,impeccable to define such a person. Though i don't think there is a single exact word which would define him/her. But these will do.


How about boy scout? From M-W:

boy scout: a person whose values or actions are characteristic of a Boy Scout

Boy scout principles and values

Your examples:

A person without any vices is known as a boy scout.

A person without any bad habits is known as or called a boy scout.

An eagle scout goes beyond an ordinary boy scout in terms of exemplifying the values and character of a boy scout. Again from M-W:

eagle scout: a Boy Scout who has reached the highest level of achievement in scouting; a straight-arrow and self-reliant man

This suggests straight arrow as yet a third possiiblity. From M-W:

straight arrow: a person who lives by rigidly proper or conventional standards
