A lesson without pain is meaningless. For you cannot gain something without sacrificing something else in return. But once you have recovered it and made it your own... You will gain an irreplaceable Fullmetal heart.

As a child born in 1899, Edward and his younger brother Alphonse Elric lived alone with their mother Trisha in the town of Resembool in the country Amestris after his father Honenheim left mysteriously. Like their father, the Elric brothers displayed a talent in alchemy and learned under an alchemist named Izumi Curtis. When his mother died, Edward coaxed Al into helping him commit one of alchemy's great taboos, Human Transmutation, to bring their mother back from the grave. However, due to the complex nature of the human soul, the attempt failed with a malformed corpse and Ed losing his left leg and then his right arm to bring back his brother's soul and affixed it to a suit of armor. Eventually accepting that the dead cannot be brought back as he joined the State Military to learn alchemic secrets kept from the public with the title of Fullmetal Alchemist, learning another harsh lesson during his time with a desperate State Alchemist named Shou Tucker, Ed decided to find the Philosopher's Stone in hopes that would restore him and his brother. But when Edward learns a horrific secret to the stone, he resolves to stop a millennia-long conspiracy to create it through mass murder.

Death Battle Info (Fanon)[]

Despite his stature, Edward is a remarkable combatant as his time under Izumi Curtis allowed him to condition his body through regular workouts and sparring. This results in Edward having a compactly muscular build that, with his naturally high energy level and endurance, fuels his considerable strength and agility as a particularly competent hand-to-hand fighter.


As an alchemist, Edward in a prodigy of genius-level intellect. Having self-taught himself from reading advanced literature in his father's abandoned study at an age, cemented by Izumi's ideals, Edward sees the world alchemically and is, therefore, able to solve complicated codes, puzzles, and mysteries much more easily than normal. He has also shown himself to be exceptionally adept at chemistry and reasonably competent with biology.

As one of few alchemists to commit human mutation and came face to face with the universal entity called Truth, Edward can perform alchemy without the need to draw a Transmutation Circle-like most alchemists. By merely clapping his hands together and use his own will power, Edward can transmute with both instantaneous and incredible versatility. This allows Edward to become a master of his surroundings as he literally has a field advantage. While he can also create weapons from his surroundings, Edward normally uses his alchemy to convert his automail arm with into an arm blade. Edward can also incorporate the fighting styles of alchemists he witnesses, Greed included, into his arsenal.


After losing his limbs, Edward was fitted with full steel automail prosthetics custom crafted by Winry and Pinako Rockbell. His left leg from just above the knee downward is automail and his automail right arm reaches all the way up to his shoulder. Both limbs are designed so that their outer shells resemble modernized plate mail. Over the course of the story, Edward changed Automail models until he is refitted with new, cold-climate type automail limbs that are significantly thinner than previous models and lighter to help Edward's movement while resisting frost. By the end of the series, Edward regained his original arm.



  • Can lose his cool over his size, specifically his height, or the well-being of his brother or their friends.
  • He can't use his Alchemy if his Automail arm gets destroyed.
