To say Tom Riddle was an angry young man was like saying night was dark, or the ocean was wet. He was angry at his mother for dying, at his father for abandoning him to the orphanage. He was angry at the people who supposedly cared for the children and angry at the children for treating him like a freak because he was different.

When he met Dumbledore, although he appreciated the news that he wasn't a freak -- instead a wizard, he was angry because the old man didn't trust him and automatically seemed to think he was trouble, just because of what the Matron said. He was angry that the man seemed to decide he wasn't worth his time, that all he was worthy of was being moulded into the daft old fool's idea of what a wizard was.

Once he began to learn how to control his significant magic, he was still angry. He knew, now, the shame of his half-Muggle birth -- at least if the things his fellow Slytherins were parroting were true. He knew he could protect himself and all of London from the bombs the Germans threw at them, but the government wouldn't allow underage magic use outside of school, and no one in the school seemed willing to point out that he could help them all. He was angry that he should be afraid for his own life when he knew there was no reason to be.

Tom Riddle was different, and he would not fit into anyone's mould of the perfect wizard -- he was going to show them all. He was going to make a name for himself and the rest of them would regret ever thinking badly of him. He used his anger to fuel his magic, and his power grew and grew until he could begin to take his revenge against all those who had hurt him. He would be the most powerful wizard of his age, and no one could stop him...
