Hope you will not take these things into the real world.
But to answer your question, no I have never felt the desire to kill. Although I have had the need to interact and get insight into some of these characters, pick there brain, so to speak.
There are numerous reasons to kill.
The first two are the normal reasons to kill-power and freedom. If you can't kill you're the slave of anyone who wants to enslave you. Your freedom is not deserved, it's just an accident of circumstance, while if you want to enslave others being willing to kill them is a mandatory vice.
Survival, profit, courage, bravery, self mastery and art are also common motives for needing the ability to kill. If you ever are unfortunate enough to face people who are trying to kill you if you can't kill them first your chances of survival are pretty low. Killing for profit whether of humans or animals has always been a common custom. The profit motive should be extremely obvious, but sadly is not. BTW are you a vegetarian? if not you're still responsible for the killing you commission while being a grocery store scavenger. Courage is much harder for most being to understand. Whatever you're afraid of weakens and enslaves you. Facing fear and overcoming it is a very rewarding experience. Bravery is also hard to understand for most people. What you can't do in a conflict will defeat you. One needs to be able to use force, but beating up a foe is often not enough to stop them, nor is inflicting pain, nor crippling them enough to stop an enemy with certainty, killing them is 100% effective at stopping them. To be effective in a conflict one can't be afraid of suffering: a beating; of any level of pain or torture that is inflicted upon one; of any mutilation or death and needs to be willing to inflict them on others. The mere threat of them is often enough to defeat a foe. If one knows what a foe fears or can't do one has already defeated them and may not have to fight them at all. Self mastery is also akin to courage and bravery, being in complete control of oneself in dangerous situation is character building. hardest of all to understand is that killing is an art and like all talents one wants to increase ones knowledge, skill and experience.

The only way ive "destroyed" a DC thou is once when I had a demon character with glowing red eyes in a boat with me. It was in a lucid dream and I could feel such malice coming off the demon character so I destroyed that character by willing the demon into an innocent harmless young boy who could do nothing to anyone and got enjoyment from disabling the demon DC like that.
You show promise, but don't you think that forcing that demon into an innocent was wrong?
