It's the right trope. He's abusive, but in a more realistic manner than the flat wicked step-parent you see in a lot of kid's works.

He's terrible at being a father-figure, and Wart is The Un-Favourite to his biological son, but he does at least care in the sense that he doesn't want him to die, and in theory wants to raise him well. (He just has no clue what he's doing with someone who isn't Dumb Muscle like his son Kay.)
