Damian Desmond is the second son of Donovan Desmond and attends Eden Academy as part of Cecile Hall, Group 3. Due to his upbringing as a child of an important and powerful man, Damian gained a highly respected status among his peers by default, making him grow incredibly arrogant, assuming Anya gained a crush on him when she stared at him. He is shown to prefer being called Lord Damian when spoken to.
After taking a punch from Anya, he becomes very embarrassed around her. After Anya's tear-filled apology, Damian has developed a crush on Anya that he doesn't want to acknowledge, quickly running away in embarrassment.
Later it is hinted that a possible reason for Damian's behavior can be attributed to his brother's success as an Imperial Scholar and his father having set a high expectation for him to strive and become part of the Imperial Scholars. His father's influence and lack of attention to his life motivated him even further to meet his expectations, causing him to look down on people beneath his social class, for if they are not a benefit to him, they are only slowing him down to becoming an Imperial Scholar and in turn slowing his progress in getting his father's attention.
A rare exception is when he protects Anya from a ball, willingly getting eliminated from the game.
