When you constitute characters and kill them in a lucid dream, you are in charge of your world and of course no one will be harmed in real life. When you have a normal dream though, you cannot decide what happens and you believe it to be real at the time. Can you feel pain in dreams? Because to me every emotion including pain is real when I am dreaming.

Not quite.
When I first started lucid dreaming as a child, I wasn't able to control my dreams at first just because I was way too young and experienced to know how to control them. Even though I wasn't able to control them at age 3, I still understood they weren't real.
Even in my lucid dreams back then and now, I feel emotions like I would in real life. Often I am allowed to feel them even more in lucid dreams, because expressing emotions or how you often really feel about something in real life is grounds for great criticism and harsh bullying.
