Setting up some unsuspecting schmuck to be eviscerated in his place (4th panel
) is noble?
In Teddy's defense, he had convinced himself that said schmuck would only be set up if they were someone who wouldn't die. If this were not the case (i.e. he was prepared to sacrifice someone else) he wouldn't have given up on the plan once Pandora told him even the manliest guy he had located was not enough. Teddy was likewise convinced there was no way for he himself to do it without dying.

Chloe was not only the cause of the parents breakup, but she got in a contract with Teddy, who didn't even know he was making a contract. However, there's no reason the mom couldn't stay around the kids and there's no reason the dad couldn't get a new job that kept him closer to the kids (or gotten them tutors and had them live on the road with him).
At least with Abby, she knew she was signing a contract. Teddy didn't even realize her was signing a contract.
Teddy's a child, not much older than his sister (3-4 year difference).
If Teddy wanted to do anything, there's only one thing he can do and that's just have sex with Chloe. Chloe on the other hand is a hell demon with no real care, even if she tries to pretend otherwise, who's centuries (decades maybe) old. If she did care, she'd have left long ago.
As a critic of the comic myself, I still feel like defending it as you seem to have misinterpreted or misremembered a number of things.
1. Chloe had no input or control over the contract, she didn't even know about it until after it was signed. Its not her contract, she was just the succubus selected to fulfill the contract.
2. Chloe can't just "leave," that's not how these contracts work. She is bound to Teddy until the contract is fulfilled or nullified.
3. Chloe is about Teddy's age, this was stated early in the comic. Not to mention we met her in EC before she had even gone through puberty. She's not decades old (unless you're saying she has spent decades in the Tartarus academy), let alone centuries, even factoring in how time can work differently in Tartarus.
4. For all her many faults Chloe does care about others, there is no way she could have pretended this long a time.
Teddy's the victim. He can't even control what he's doing, because he has the succubus urges he can't control and being a teen isn't likely helping him any.
Teddy has control of himself, at most his succubus side is just making the things he decides to do with men very enjoyable. His succubus body is influencing him, but not controlling him.
