Given his immense knowledge, he is rarely taken aback. That would be an accurate summation of my feelings towards you humans. Question is. In this form, Father is shown to have a strange, almost liquid-like body structure somewhat resembling his ancient flask form. Suddenly, Greed bursts from the cloud of dust and gun smoke and delivers a punch right to his father's face, exclaiming that a Homunculus might succeed where humans have failed, but as Father takes hold of Greed's hand, he thanks his son for delivering a complete Philosopher's Stone to him when he needed it most and begins draining Philosopher's Stone energy from his body. As he begins to fall back, Ed and Al rush to his aid, holding him up so that he might keep up the fight and their grateful father redoubles his efforts, straining his Philosopher's Stone. Dante | Father | Father begins crying as he desperately asks what he did wrong to deserve this and where he went wrong, showing the flaws he tried to purge himself of. He caused countless gory slaughters, killed hundreds of thousands and would have killed millions without so much as a qualm, but cannot bear the idea of not being in control of the situation. Occupation Father (お父様, Otō-sama) is the oldest and most powerful Homunculus. Summary. Father's original personality when he was known as the Dwarf in the Flask is more human-like and beautifully charismatic than when compared to his later self. Father takes on a form identical to Pride. Yet, he only cares about Hohenheim and the Elrics because they are useful for his goals. Hohenheim even states that he has his homunculi call him "Father" because he desires a family like everyone else, something that irks him but which he does not deny. Abilities Affiliations Ling collapses to the ground, restored to complete humanity as the Ouroboros on his hand fades away, while Father howls piteously at his own son's treachery. Lieutenant General Raven | No longer needing sacrifices, Father cancels Alchemy once more and prepares to dispose of the five sacrifices, as well as Greed and May, at his whim by creating a miniature sun in the palm of his hand. Ultimately, in his final moments, Father's motivation is revealed to be freedom from the laws of the universe itself, and his dedication to his goals makes him all the more menacing. Edward and Alphonse use their alchemy to attack Father, with no avail; Father is entirely unharmed by their attacks before he merely stomps his foot to seal off all alchemy in Central. Greed | The story follows two … 431 years old (deceased) Ironically, the punishment that Truth gave Father is quite poetic: By letting the Gate of Truth drags the Homunculus into it, Truth finally allows him to be an absolute God, but at the same time also stripped him from the very freedom he cherished. To that end, he befriended Slave 23 out of similar circumstances as slaves to their respective plights, in turn naming the lad Van Hohenheim and educating him to win his freedom as an act of thanks for his hand in creating him. After he gives himself a Hohenheim-looking container: To become perfectly good by removing all of his seven cardinal sins (partially failed? However, despite knowing almost everything he needs to experience something in order to recognize it, or at least he needed it when he was discovering the world from within his flask. As such he often acts as if he was always right and lectures people, even when they disagree or can prove him wrong. He's told Greed that anything he wanted was desired by him first, meaning that Greed's desire for friends was something Father desired but expelled because he thought it was a weakness. Truth, Sacrifice Xerxes population to gain a human body and immortality. The most common shape he took was that of a slightly obese humanoid with eyes with red irises adorning his black body and a wide grin on his otherwise nonexistent face. Looks just like Van Hohenheim Watch Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (Sub) Episode 28 - Father. Ed looks at the scorched body of his father and calls out to him, but as Hohenheim opens his eyes, Father appears behind him and swats him aside. He then manipulated the event so he and Hohenheim were standing at the true center of the circle, so once it was activated, every soul in Xerxes besides himself and Hohenheim were sacrificed to make what was possibly the first Philosopher's Stone ever created. He is able to orchestrate the entire story to the last event, by planting his agents where he needs and deceiving unsuspecting parties into doing his bidding; (though he left most of it to his homunculi). He wears casual Xerxes-style clothing and goes shirtless. Luckily, Scar activates the Alkahestric reverse-Nationwide Transmutation Circle, which nullifies Father's "buffer" and grants true alchemy to Amestrians. Though Father previously cryptically implied that this was his true form all along (though previously much smaller, only encapsulating Father's room) to discourage his sacrifices from escaping. As the alchemists recoil in horror as the Xerxesians wander about, grateful to have returned to the world of the living, Edward finally makes his way to the surface. He does not need to bother with alchemic rules and limitations and he can transmute matter without even having to move. The Dwarf in the Flask:Homunculus Homunculi (ホムンクルス, Homunkurusu) are an race of artificial humanoids that serve as the primary antagonistic force in Fullmetal Alchemist who were created by the Homunculus Father by extracting what he believed to be his natural flaws into fragments of his Philosopher's Stone. Gluttony (Fullmetal Alchemist) Father (Fullmetal Alchemist) Edward Elric; Alphonse Elric; Trisha Elric; Canon: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood; ish; Homunculi; Summary. He absorbs back a homunculus to slowly restore them. When Father is sucked back into the Gate, it could almost be seen as comical that such a tiny creature was responsible for the entire plot of the story. This process, however, can be countered by a "Reverse Transmutation Circle", which is a concept Scar's brother had figured out by combining Xingese Alkahestry and Alchemy practices. Since each of the Homunculi he created were partially made of his soul in an attempt to cleanse himself of his sins, a part of him is still alive due to Pride never being fully destroyed. Bulging and writing in agony as God's eye rises from his gullet and into his mouth, threatening to escape, Father topples to the ground and releases a huge burst of energy which throws everyone from his body. Kent Williams He had to remain in the flask in which he had been created, otherwise, he would have died. Type of Villain When confronted by Hohenheim about this, Father reveals that the seven Homunculi were only created so he would become a perfect being. Father is an extremely powerful being, whose mastery of alchemy dwarfs that of the best practitioners to a huge extent (with the exception of the equally powerful Van Hohenheim). His control over alchemic energy skyrockets as well, and he becomes able to fire tremendous energy blasts from every direction, to make them last as long as he wants and even to increase their already immense magnitude tenfold, and to absorb human souls without rituals. Ed, seeing the danger as Father approaches him, attempts to scurry to safety, but finds that his left arm has been impaled on some twisted rebar jutting out of the rubble, pinning him to the spot.

To become perfectly good by removing all of his seven cardinal sins (partially failed? Father's body is created by and contains the Philosopher's Stone that came from half of the souls of the human population of Xerxes (however, he later gave parts of it to create the other Homunculi). Meet the four fathers that provided color in this story and helped shape the main characters, brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric, along the way.. One of his outward looks bears a striking resemblance to Van Hohenheim. Father replies that he can create and proves Hohenheim wrong by resurrecting the Xerxesians with his body. He is the secret builder and leader of the nation of Amestris, to sacrifice its population to pry open the Gate of Truth and become the new God. Back when he had his original, mortal form in the flask, he had a much more polite, charismatic, yet also somewhat sarcastic personality to him. The Gate that Father appears in front of is completely blank, indicates that he never learned anything, just like Truth stated. Gold Toothed Doctor | )To control the Eye of God in order to become a so-called 'Perfect Being'Obtain absolute freedom from "God". Father (お父様, Otō-sama) is the central antagonist of the manga and 2009 anime series. Lust (2003 & 2017) | However, Hohenheim reveals his own plan: all the Xersesians souls that Hohenheim separated from his body and merged with the earth itself, using the moon's shadow as a circle, force Father to release the Amestrian souls and guide them back to their own bodies. Oddly enough, this form retains his old man's voice in the anime. Father's first form is a small round mass of black gas with a single eye, a wide toothy mouth, and tendril-like arms, making him resemble the Eye of Truth from inside the Gate (This might be because Father was created from the entity's essence). Age A confrontation between two individuals born from the same man. Even after all those years, Father still cares about Hohenheim somewhat. Despite the alchemists' refusal to aid him, and Greed's attempt on his life, Father defeats his attackers and proceeds to finally activate the Nationwide Transmutation Circle around Amestris, using the restrained sacrifices' gates to access the Earth's gate while absorbing all of the Amestrians' souls. Creator An assumption rendered even more plausible knowing that Hohenheim left his family 10 years before the s… Homunculus What's wrong with seeking perfection? The purpose behind this is to act as a barrier between the tectonic energy of the earth's crust, where Amestrian Alchemy gets its energy from, so that he can stop others from using Alchemy at any time. Envy (2003) | Evolved Alt name(s): Author: Hanayama. Seiyū Father's image bears a striking resemblance with the image concept of God as an old man with robes in multiple religions. Despite basing itself wholly on the manga, the 2009 anime does not include the scenes of him talking with Lust prior to her death and when he decided to left Wrath in charge of Mustang. This could possibly hint that Father may be able to possibly be reborn or recreated through Pride. In the 2009 anime, before Father gets sucked back to the Gate (while in his fourth appearance), he loses both of his arms (the other arm was lost when he destroyed Greed), unlike in the manga where he only loses one arm and one leg, ironically mirroring what happened to Ed at the beginning of the story. Father is serious, merciless, deeply selfish and extremely overconfident, looking bored nearly all the time. He wore gray clothing during his time as a slave. He is also the one who responsible for the fall of Xerxes and Edward and Alphonse's loss of their body parts. However, even point-blank, Scar's alchemy is unable to harm Father. Father's English voice actor also voiced Majhal from the 2003 anime. His later self is stated by Hohenheim to be much more stoic, composed, almost lifeless, and almost always looking bored, the reason being that he had supposedly purged himself of the seven vices (this "purging" seems to have been incomplete, since he acts in sinful manners that reflect the seven vices). Now surrounded by Hohenheim, Izumi, Alphonse, and May, Father is asked by Hohenheim the reason why he hates humans by pointing out his origins and the reason that the Homunculi exist is because of Philosopher Stones, which are made from human souls. Considering the gate seems to portray a different alchemic symbol (such as Mustang's transmutation circle) between alchemists, it may also be seen to represent Father's status as a being originating from the gate itself.
