Just a correction... the lich king did not suck the souls out of every scourge that was created... he is just one being after all and cannot be there in all those instances... most of the scourge was created through the plague that was unleashed in lordaeron which would was specifically targeted for humans and after killing them would automatically raise them as mindless undead... their souls were probably still trapped in their bodies but their minds were enslaved and no longer sentient... hence why when the lich king lost power and control over them, their sentience was restored... their souls were still around but had been dominated by the will of the lich king... also I doubt you could call the lich king a plane of existence... it is a being that somehow transcended it's origin... it is the corrupt side of arthas merged with the twisted remnant of ner'zhul... it became a entity of pure malevolence and death that was only being held back by the mortal will of arthas's old self which was relegated to the farthest depths of his consiousness along with ner'zhul's original self... which is what the vision in rise of the lich king was about... a new third being had arisen from the merger of corrupted arthas and twisted ner'zhul and split off from their original mortal intelligences and banished them to the recesses of it is mind... their evilness had taken on a mind of it's own and had taken over the collective being that known as the lich king even though it was really the lich king using the body of arthas and keeping his will at bay (and I guess had completely suppressed ner'zhul but maybe ner'zhul was permantly tied to the lich king since apparently his conciousness was not present in arthas after the helm of domination was removed)... odd that even after doing this, arthas's original goodness was able to influence the lich king enough to keep him from all-out slaughtering the mortal factions of the world...

I really think it's a misnomer that the Scourge are mindless. While the rank and file skeletons and ghouls are, there is plenty of evidence that the longer something remains within the Scourge, the more intelligence and free will it develops, although it remains under the Lich King's command. It's not just Death Knights, liches, and crypt lords that are intelligent, thinking members of the Scourge. If anything, I'd think that would be more terrifying a thought: That if you stay with the Scourge long enough, you start to like it.
