A word that describes someone who ‘sees/brings out the good in others’?

The person doesn’t have to be good themselves, but they can bring the good out of others. The word doesn’t have to be an english word, I just want to know if such a word exists.

Ex. Beauty with the Beast. Durga with Asura(Asura’s Wrath, not the religious scripture). The 3 ghosts in the Christmas Story with Scrooge.


One would most likely use “complements.”

By the way, in literature, a “foil” is a character that complements another, such as in the case of Sancho and Don Quixote.
