Scar and the Elric family connections?  
Ok, so just call me crazy, but I got this idea in the shower after watching ep 21

Scar's brother was messing around with alchemy. He was trying to bring someone back, like Ed and Al. He disappeared during the Ishibal(sp?) massacre so it seems, so where did he go? Then along comes Lust, who Scar says looks like the person his brother was trying to bring back. It has been discussed here that Ed and Al's father may have created the Sins. So, is it just coinidence that Lust looks like Scar's brother's girlfriend/wife/whatever or could it be that Ed and Al's father is Scar's brother?

Just total randomness, but tell me what you think!

Y'know, that's what I thought too^^ Except I haven't watched ep 21. I thought that Scar's brother might be the Elric brother's father in the episode when Scar commented that Ed has 'good eyes like my brother'.
But it doesn't seem too possible because the Elric brothers have no Isvarian trait at all...so....

From the first time I saw Scar in the opening credits, I said "that's either their father or uncle." Certain things has only cemented that notion. Like, what little you can see of their father in the picture frame, it looks as though he has a similar facial structure/hair thing as Scar. But I'm kinda hoping that Scar isn't actually related to them, because that would be cliche, but I'll deal. :D

Y'know, I thought the exact same thing. Which is scary. I'm thinking we're kinda on the right track with this... I mean, we've never really seen Ed and Al's father, right?

And then, Ed and Al would have an Uncle Scar. Which is just... too Lion King for me. XD buahahahaha

Perhaps they're both albinos? :P

BTW, why do people insist on calling it "Ishbal" when the katakana very clearly says Ishval/Ishvar (I-SHI-yu-VU-a-(wovel extensor)-RU)? Yes, B and V can be used interchangably, but the character used in Ishval is specifically VU (U with quotation mark), there's a separate katakana character for BA. If it would be Ishbal, the katakana would be "I-SHI-yu-BA-(wovel extensor)-RU". But it isn't.

But since they are only half, they don't necessarily need to have dark skin and red eyes... But Ed has yellow eyes, is he the only one in the series with yellow eyes? Even Al didn't have yellow eyes...(Sorry, total tangent here)

in the opening credits where it zooms in on the first family picture, with mr. elric holding kiddy!ed, ed and al's daddy has pale skin and pale (or brown) hair~ there still could be a connection revealed later on in the series but right now i think they're not related to scar ^^

Trisha's hair was brown, so if Scar's brother was their father, then where did Ed and Al get their hair?
And that would also imply that their "father" was having an affair...not much better than just ditching his family, but still...if he was so obviously an Ishvarite, then I'm guessing Trisha would at least have an idea of where he might be (Ishvar), since there might be a chance that his family would still be there.
It's a good theory, but I don't think it works.

Ah. That was a theory of mine a while ago, as well, but I abandoned it after a while. But it did lend some giggles when I was talking to a friend about it, and they said, "Wait, so Scar's his uncle?" and someone overhearing that began the whole Lion King scene with Timon & Simba. "The monkey's his uncle?" xDD
