I cross the lines: madness and genius

Nimrod was both a genius for leading his people and also mean and strange

A early father I was born

Nimrod is an early character from the Bible

Citadels I enjoy a plotting

Nimrod built the famous tower of Babel

An enigma I remain to those who know me

Nimrod was an enigma, because he was actually correct in hoping for mankind to have a common language, but woefully punished by God who wanted differently. It's the paradox of universal difference and sameness.
