Nothing else is revealed about the reasons for this other than the Fates are [[GodsHandsAreTied obliged to it]] for unclear reasons. The Horned King is promised a full freedom from [[SoulJar the Black Cauldron]] for successful completion of the quest and [[AndIMustScream permanent imprisonment]] into it for failure.
