|Damn - just when you've made one armchair diagnosis, another one with a better fit comes along. Try Fanatic Narcissist to see if it fits.|
|Fanatic narcissist - including paranoid features. An individual whose self-esteem was severely arrested during childhood, who usually displays major paranoid tendencies, and who holds on to an illusion of omnipotence. These people are fighting delusions of insignificance and lost value, and trying to re-establish their self-esteem through grandiose fantasies and self-reinforcement. When unable to gain recognition or support from others, they take on the role of a heroic or worshipped person with a grandiose mission.|
Bolding mine. Top that, someone!
Narcissistic personality disorder was definitely the one I was thinking of, but you've nailed it with this one.
