    Well, he was certainly a real over-achiever and a go getter.

    But he had a bit of a Napoleon complex.

    Brilliant, oh yes.

    But he wanted to conquer the world, or at least his own little part of it.

    It also seems he had these illusions of grandeur too.

    All in all, a very interesting character to be sure.
