Questions oh my  
Just wondering what the brothers used to bring back their mom, I dont remember them having a part of her body when they tried to bring her back, dont they need it?

I don't think they knew about that before hand.

Originally, they used their own blood in the hopes of making a soul.

You can tell where it went from there.

I always thought that that was why they used drops of their blood, because they thought it had all of the information about her... or something like that.

No, they never had to have a part of her original body to try and bring her back, that's why they used all the ingredients. Izumi just happened to use the original body of her child after adding additional ingredients. However, a part of the original body CAN be used in a specific, spoilerific way in the series, perhaps that's where you got confused?

I was just watching the episode where he gets rid of Slouth, and he kept saying u need something of what was used to create them, so I got a little confused, but duh the their blood, but if it was their own blood, couldnt ed just have touched her and she would have gotten weak?

Spoiler! Highlight to read:

Not "what was used to create". The weak point of a Homunculus is "part of the body of the person one tried to bring back".

Thus; it's not 'any of the materials (or blood) that Ed and Al used on that night when they did human transmutation', but instead, 'a bone or other object of the original body'.

Which explains why Sloth couldn't move because the box containing Trisha's bone (I'm guessing it was a bone) was put into Sloth's body.
Wrath backs this up by saying that he doesn't have a weakness - as his original body was lost when Izumi tried to preform human transmutation.

I'm pretty sure they used their blood, a drop each. In the dub, Ed said something like, "Our blood...from her blood." He reasons that blood is the "spark that starts life" and then says something like "that's a soul, really."

Of course, I'm trying to get this from memory, so I could be completely wrong.

They didn't use anything from her original body, as a matter of fact. However, they did both put a drop of their own blood into the pile of ingredients as a source for DNA.

Then wouldnt their blood had caused her to go all weak since it was what created her?
Rappydappydappy McTappyraptorix on October 19th, 2005 01:38 am (UTC)
Well, technically, their blood contained ingredients as well, and since both have half of their mother's DNA (as is the way with genetics), they guessed that hopefully both had enough of their mother's DNA put together to help rebuild her.

But if you want to go technical and scientific, I wouldn't, as it is an anime, and animes never attempt to be 100% sound scientific, logical, or realistic.
