Idea

A map between precategories C and D is faithful if it's an embedding on hom-sets.

Note that embeddings on sets happen to coincide with injections, but we define it in terms of the stronger notion, as this is the notion that generalizes.

Definition

The predicate on maps between precategories of being faithful
