Ted Gioia calls his Substack "The Honest Broker." He tells a story that resonates with what you are describing (albeit one that took place in the straight world) about how he found that title; in every social environment there is one man who is respected by all for his honesty and his ability to find the win-win solution.

It sounds like you were the honest broker of your prison.
