The Elric Brothers: Edward and Alphonse Elric
We first meet Edward Elric, our protagonist, driven by his quest to restore his younger brother Alphonse’s body. Edward, also known as the Fullmetal Alchemist, embarks on a heartrending journey, struggling with guilt, determination, and the harsh realities of equivalent exchange. He is a compassionate hero, using violence only when necessary and fiercely protective of his little brother.
Alphonse Elric is the younger, kind-hearted brother trapped in a suit of armor due to a tragic failed alchemical experiment. Although he is physically imposing, Alphonse is gentle, humble, and wise beyond his years. His optimism and pure heart often serve as the family’s moral compass throughout the dark themes of the series.
The Homunculi are a group of artificial beings created from human transmutation trials. Named after the seven deadly sins, they serve as the series’ primary antagonists.
Lust, the Lascivious represents the sin of desire. Her power, the Ultimate Spear, can pierce through any matter.
Envy, the Jealous has the power to shape-shift, which it uses to manipulate humans and trigger conflicts.
Gluttony, the Voracious has an insatiable appetite and can even consume humans.
Greed, the Avaricious desires everything in the world, displaying the ability to harden his body, rendering him virtually indestructible.
Sloth, the Indolent is deemed the slowest of the Homunculi, symbolizing laziness. However, when required, he can move at surprising speeds.
Wrath, the Furious (King Bradley) is the adoptive son of the mastermind behind the Homunculi, Father. With his Ultimate Eye, he can predict his opponents’ move, making him an invincible warrior.
Pride, the Arrogant (Selim Bradley) is the oldest Homunculus but with a form of a child. His shadowy form is used for offense and defense, reflecting his arrogant and narcissistic personality.
