The Torah brings very descriptive lineage of the Good guys (us) and the Bad guys (Eusov's Alufim, Amolek from Eisov etc) but reciting the Haggadah I was stumbled by the fact that Pharaoh's wickedness comes out of nowhere.
While the Meforshim compare the Egyptian Exile to Kutzo Shel Yod (of the Holy Name as one letter per one Exile) it is still unclear where does the wickedness come from.
So what evil does Pharaoh descend from? Was he a "super villain" like Lavan or just a regular idolater? What was his lineage and why the Torah does not mention it, unlike Haman, for example?
For those who interpret the Torah (ויקם מלך חדש) as נתחדשו גזרותיו - where do we see that a regular guy can one day turn into such a super evil-doer?
This question asks only about his spiritual heritage, another question deals with his genealogy.
