How did she get out? How dare she defy me! I never should've trusted her!
"Desdemona's father, somewhat blustering and self-important Venetian senator. As a friend of Othello, Brabantio feels betrayed when the general marries his daughter in secret."- Page x, No Fear Shakespeare
Brabantio was told of the secret marriage by Roderigo with the help of Iago. He does't believe them at first, but then he sees Desdemona is missing. This is the point where his hatred for Othello begins and only grows from here.
"Oh heaven, how she got out? Oh, treason of the blood!/ Fathers, from hence trust not your daughters' minds/ By what you see them act. Is there not charms/ By which the property of youth and maid hood/ May be abused? Have you not read, Roderigo,/ Of some such thing?" (1.1.172-177)
