To me, that was one of the biggest mistakes about the Arthas novel. For one, I think everyone is sick of the Anakin Skywalker story. The whole kid Arthas-dad issues-horse issues-thing was pretty weak and cliche. Why couldn't he have just been a malevolent little prick that likes to torture animals, leer at women, and fantasize about various ways of killing people. I know it's the trend to try and explain why villains are the way they are, but some people are just bad. And sometimes those bad people get put in positions of power that allow them to hurt many times more people than they would have. To any one that might think this would make for a one dimensional character, I suggest they read "Zombie" by Joyce Carrol Oates.
