He like languages and hoped to travel to other countries when he grew, subsequently he learned Latin, German, and French beside English while growing up.
Unbeknownst to the rest of his family, or anyone else for that matter, he became a psychopath. Due of the nature his condition he seemd to be a normal child, albeit abnormally smart. He understood his condition and came to be an adept manipulator. The thing he desired most was power. He could stand the absence of power, but only if he knew it would eventually lead to him ending up in a position of power. Being a bright student, he realized that knowledge was the key to power, knowledge was not power. He dedicated his childhood to learning. Outwardly he appeared to be a great student with an appetite for knowledge, his sometime resentment at his absence of power could be simply explained as overconfidence or a large ego.
