Well... I got to thinking, each Homoculus represents the physical incarnation of one of the 7 cardnal sins, right?
Well, judging from the one homoculus (whom I shall not spoil until after a lj-cut), that the anime showed, both of how they lived normally, and how they lived as a homoculus, I've come to the conlusion of....
All the homoculi are complete polar opposites of their original human forms.
So, lets start with the first three: Envy, Lust, and Gluttony.
Envy is an angry and jealous homoculus. We got to see a breif glimpse of it in the last dub episode aired: Created Humans. Envy expressed his deep resentment for by kicking Edward when he was down and commenting that he"carrys that bastard's blood in his veins".
So, I suppose when Envy was a human, before his creator did human transmutation to revive him from the dead, Envy must have been a very modest person, never holding grudges, and easy to forgive.( Collapse )
Lust! A very sensual woman, and uses her sexuality to get what she wants all the time. She prances around with lots of cleavage showing to boot.
So... her original human self must've been a very faithful woman who would never leave her boyfriend/fiance/husband.( Collapse )
Gluttony! They never tell Gluttony's past in the anime... he's just the creepy, childish fat guy who wants to eat everything and everyone.
So.... my thoughts are that the original Gluttony must've been a skinny and mature-minded person... (LOL that's almost impossible to comprehend! XD). No one knows who created Gluttony, or for what purpose. So this one is full of speculation...Sorry sorry, back with more!! Using some ideas tossed in from replies
Greed! Well, he's just been introduced in the dub, though most of this shouldn't be spoilerific, rather, some 'no duhs' that one would associate with his character.
Greed, obviously is greedy. He even says it himself. He wants anything of value, and that usually falls into the money and women category... (you'll see him later on with a few 'trophy' females clinging onto him).
So, naturally assuming, I suspect that as a human, he would have been a very charitable, and if he was in a position of money, quite the philanthropist (rich dood who gives away money to anyone). Possibly also, he would have lived a simple life, with simplistic, and minimal material possessions...( Collapse )( Collapse )
