Ooh, I didn't think I could ever feel sorry for the Witch King, but I guess like all the others, he didn't start out evil, just gullible and a little power-hungry.

This story humanizes the Witch-King, for awhile. He was human once, which somehow seems to flea our thoughts of him. Though he craved it and the power it brought, his Ring enslaved him, corrupted him. Lyllyn captured this quite well, I think.
