We have yet to learn our purpose in this world. Is this body man or beast? If all things were made with a purpose, then the answer to that question must lie somewhere. For centuries we have been unable to find the answer. In which case, it is time we decided on an answer for ourselves! A dragon’s eyes see the truth, piercing all lies and deceit! A dragon’s talons tear through fortresses, striking down the evil sequestered within! A dragon’s fangs shred through one’s own weakness, biting through hatred and wrath. For once a dragon loses its benevolence, it is naught more than a beast. So long as the blade of reason is my weapon—Then we are not beasts, but dragonmen!
— Tio reciting the Dragonman creed, Light Novel Volume 10
Tio is initially strong-willed, kind, and wise. After her first encounter with Hajime Nagumo, Tio becomes a pervert and a masochist who is loyal to him due to being bested by him in combat and for awakening this new sensation for her. Her perversion only grows as the series goes on, like when after she spoon-fed Hajime she licked around the used spoon.
Tio eventually realizes that she loves Hajime as more than just a master. When Hajime was injured by Freid Bagwa (an Ancient Magic user within the demon race), she protected him before confessing her love for him and later almost killing Freid leaving scars of her wrath on him. Though at times she is a perverted woman, she is also sharp and gives useful advice when needed. She is extremely loyal to her comrades, and would be more than willing to lay down her life for them. Tio is blunt and prefers to get straight to the point whenever speaking with others. This is not her intention to be rude but however due to her honest nature.
Despite her perverted nature, Tio is shown to have a reasonable amount of embarrassment at times. She is especially ashamed that her newly awakened fetishes has dishonored the reputation of the dragonmen as a race of noble beings. As well, Tio possesses the greatest mental strength among all of Hajime's wives and even Hajime himself. She is very strict with herself, never making any excuses or denying any failures on her part and will accept any punishment for her wrongdoings. This allowed her to overcome all the mental challenges she had faced in the Labyrinths with ease.
During the final trail of the Frost Cavern of Schnee, it is revealed that Tio has a strong hatred for Ehit and the Holy Church as she wanted revenge upon them. Despite her people's noble intentions to protect all the races of Tortus and maintain themselves as noble beings, it was all ruined when the Holy Church declared dragonmen as "heretics". This lead to the destruction of her village by the very people they swore to protect and even the death of her parents. While Tio does her best to keep these feelings in check, they do influence some of her choices, as the reason why she decided to join Hajime was because she though she could use him to fight the false gods to suit her vengeance upon the so-called "gods" and the Holy Church to avenge her parents and people. Under the order of Hajime of destroying the Holy Church temple, Tio is highly pleasured to extended her revenge to the Holy Church by destroying the temple which purposely killed the pope and his bishops for their interference.
After the destruction of the dragonman kingdom as well as the deaths of her parents, Tio inherited her father's will and mission of defeating the pseudo gods. She trained herself to the point of surpassing her grandfather, who was known as the strongest dragonman in her village. It is because of her mission that she swore to never take a spouse that was weaker than herself and why she wanted to investigate the otherworld summoning as she had hoped that it could lead to the false gods' deaths. She is grateful to Hajime for offering to fight the so-called "gods" on her behalf but wished for him to fulfill the prior promises he made. After Hajime said he would make a new promise with her should she need to return to Tortus to fight, she expressed her deep gratitude and became shy as she was very grateful that he treasures and cares for her that much.

- The base stats given above aren't Tio's current stats, as the last time the author provided stats for her in the Web Novel was before she acquired "Evolution Magic" from the Haltina's Labyrinth.
- (Tio introducing herself to Hajime Nagumo and the others): "I have caused you all much grief. Please understand that I truly, truly am sorry for what I have done. My name is Tio Klarus. I’m a dragonman of the Klarus clan.."
- (Expressing her grief and anger to Hajime): "Master, are you saying I alone am not worthy to fight with you until the end? Are you truly asking me to abandon you all? I will not—"
- (Tio expressing her trust in Hajime): "Master is the kind of man who can overturn any kind of hopeless situation and make it look easy. You can’t help but trust in him..."
- (To Hajime Nagumo after reuniting at Erisen): "I believed in you. I believed... you would return... Still, you made me wait quite some time, Master."
- (To Aiko Hatayama): "If you’ve committed to this path, then I suppose I have no choice. I’m sure Master won’t mind if this is truly what you want. Very well. Let us slaughter those fools together!"
- (To Hajime Nagumo): "I am your servant and your servant alone, Master! Such tepid pleasure cannot hope to compare to the exquisite pain which you grace me with on a daily basis! Please do not think of me as some loose woman who’ll let any old sadist slap her arse!"
- (To Kaori Shirasaki about Shea Haulia): "Through all the tears, through all the terror, she continued to press forward. All so that she could stand together with those she loved. While this world seems to have granted Kouki the title of hero... I believe that neither he nor even Master are worthy of holding that title. If the word hero defines someone who possesses limitless courage, then no one is more deserving of that moniker than Shea Haulia."
- (Tio describing her comrades): "Every one of my comrades is a miracle. That we were all able to meet each other is a miracle as well. We have a normal boy who crawled his way out of the abyss. A 300-year-old vampire who escaped from an eternal seal. The only rabbitman in generations to be born with mana. A strong-willed priest who made the body of an apostle her own. Who could possibly have imagined such absurd people could exist? Surely not even god predicted this. Everyone’s existence, and our chance meetings, are all miracles. Right now, my life is filled with miracles. And nothing could make me happier."
