To make matters worse, her parents were killed in a human attack. So seeing that Tohru is coexisting with humans she had to step in and destroy her.

Damocles is Tojhru’s father and an important figure in the Chaos faction known as the “Emperor of Demise” in the Kobayashi Dragon Maid series.

After knowing that his daughter has taken an interest in a human girl and is planning to live with her for the rest of her life, Damocles steps in and demands that Tohru go back home. He tries to talk some sense into her by pointing out the difference in lifespan between a human and a dragon.
However, here is where he messed up. When Kobayashi attempts to talk, he destroys her glasses and threatens her to choose her words wisely. When Kobayashi is done talking, Tohru gains confidence, and her father does not like that. So he challenges Tohru to a fight.
Again, Kobayashi intervenes and stops them from fighting, concluding the battle in a peaceful way, and the Emperor of Demise returns back home even though he does not approve of Tohru’s decision.
Clemene is a dragon from the Harmony faction. One day, he finds Ilulu all alone and begins violently beating her as they belong to opposing factions. However, Ilulu was completely defenseless and was about to be done in by him.
