The Elric Dad  
I was re-watching a bunch of FMA episodes, and got to musing about Ed & Al's Dad...dunno if anyone wrote about this yet...

Well, first of all, we know that the Elric Dad was an alchemist, and that he disappeared after awhile, and nothing more beyond that. I dunno, but that alone seems a bit fishy...and besides, who puts random armor around the house? I think the Dad was probably experimenting with human transmutation of some sort, and that things have gone wrong before, and that could be why he has armor around - as a back-up ~ like affixing souls via blood seal onto an armor....??

Then, during episode 23? when Envy was beating up Ed in the laboratory, he screamed that "you're that bastard's son!" This could mean that the Elric Dad was the one that created the homunculus, and that could be why the Sins were looking for Ed in order to turn them into real human using the Red Water.

Tell me what you think.....since right now...I don't think I'm making much sense..'Doh..

I was thinking about that actually.

Humm... Now that I think about it, we were never told who bound Barry's(and the Slicer's) souls to those suits of armor. Those two (er, three. The Slicer was two brothers..) were obviously helping the Sins, so perhaps Hohenheim (my apologies if I spelled that wrong) is in league with the Sins.... that wouldn't make much sense though, since the sins are supposedly quite old, i.e. Greed being sealed for.. 130 years, I think it was. It seems that someone related to Ed and Al had some part in creating the sins, but perhaps it was their grandfather, or something. I really have no idea. I haven't gotten past TW's translations of the manga. >.>;;

But Lust and Sloth have the appearance of people who died within the past 15 or so years. So they are either using new bodies, or they are younger than Greed.

I think you're absolutely right. I think I may have done a little discussion of this subject in my own LJ recently. Dad is totally involved somehow, and I think he's making the younger homunculi (Greed mentions 130 years, so obviously he couldn't have been created by dad.)
I think it's canon that he was experimenting with HT because I believe the boys found his notes and that's how they knew what to do. But that may have been my imagination.
I'll tell you what REALLY freaks me out. If the kid from 28/29 is a homunculus created from the failed Izumi HTing, then someone is keeping an eye out for people who are HTing and grabbing what they create. Lust = Cheryl (scar's sister-in-law - see an earlier post for why :) Sloth = Trisha Elric, and odd-kid = Izumi's HT. Those people are SO not involved with each other in any way prior to Trisha's death, so how the hell could someone know about each of those? And yet, someone does. And I think it's Hoenheim (sp?) Elric.

I thought green-haired boy from 28/29 was from Ed's failed transmutation? The screenshots looked like he had Ed's arm and leg.

takin in what was said below, and how the failed HT are possibly human creatures, mixed up creepy bodies and no souls (which, if a homunculus decided to use because i speculate they are merely *minds* until someone gives them form, then they'd be able to 'fix' the body....>_>)

but going on how the boy has scars where Ed has scars....possible his body was partially done? Like, the ppl that *die* from a failed HT, their bodies get to be HT? no, that doesn't make any sense for the other homunculi...i just had the thought that the boy has ed's arm and leg...so, Al's body, which was de-constructed....could be homunculi somewhere!
....*blink* weird. heh. goin off now.

My theory is that the homunculi are being constructed out of the failed experiments... you know, that grotesque creature that is created when one attempts HT. It's just a theory, but it's my favorite theory :)

Hmm...if that's how and why Trisha died, a lot things make sense then...and not to mention that that is just plain sadistic and Tucker-inspired......

Some other random thoughts/questions:
Oh yeah, what about Scar's arm?? Is that a transmutation circle for the Philosopher's Stone? I couldn't tell, but it seemed to be, since when Marco threw the stone at his arm, it absorbed it...

The Fuhrer is apparently also a sin...wonder which dead guy he resembles... (and oh yeah!! That's why Ed was all suspicious when he first saw the secretary/sloth in ep.13....no wonder...she looks like Trisha Elric O_O)
