If not for his brother Ed, Alphonse would have disappeared completely and their wish to bring their mother back from the dead made worse ten-folds. His body disappeared in their attempt to do the taboo in alchemy, but Ed managed to seal his soul inside an armor suit.

People, then, would automatically assume that he is the Fullmetal Alchemist.

Ed is a child trapped in a metal body. He is 10 years old at the time and is therefore very polite. He constantly acts as Ed’s voice of reason and is very protective of his big brother.

While he longs to become human again, he seems to care more for his brother than for himself and is more willing to restore Ed’s limbs.

Despite his situation, trapped inside a metal armor with no heart and memory, Al retains the kindness and purity of a young child. He is a strong pacifist who always sees the goodness in others.

Ed had used his own blood to seal Al in the armor suit and it is located at the nape inside the suit. Once erased, Al’s soul would be lost.

To save Al’s body from exploding, Scar transferred the incomplete Philosopher’s Stone inside him, and later turning him into the Philospher’s Stone. However, he has to use alchemy sparingly for doing so destroys his own body. Nevertheless, he did not heed using it’s entire power after seeing his brother killed by one of the Homunculi. Edward tried to bring him back and ends up on the other side of the gate while he was able to recover his human body.

In the Fullmetal Alchemist Movie, Conqueror of Shamballa, he had regained his human form and is using alchemy to help people, while at the same time looking for a way to reunite with his big brother.

Who is Pepesan?

20 something year-old otaku from the Philippines. I love making up articles around the topic of anime and would love to be a part of a local anime magazine and so I put up this blogzine to try to hone any writing skill I have. Also, the Pinoy anime community is in much need of help right now and so this is but a small contribution from me. Thank you for the support so far!
