About Edward Elric
Edward Elric is an Alchemist in search of the legendary Philosopher’s Stone. He’s just a kid, but he’s already been through more struggles than men twice his age. Before he achieved the status as a State Alchemist, he was part of a failed human transmutation experiment. His left leg was cut off in an attempt to bring his dead mother back to life, and then his right arm was severed in exchange for his brother’s soul.
Edward shares a deep bond with his brother, Alphonso, whom he loves very much. Since Alphonso was also part of the failed transmutation event, he lost his entire body. His soul now bound to his steel armor. Due to this extreme misfortune, Edward and his younger brother both travel in hopes of discovering the philosopher’s stone. The hope is that the stone can restore both of their bodies to their original state. Both brothers are competent fighters trained in martial arts and must fight off their enemy Scar and the immortal homunculi.
