I was reading quickly over the manga chapters, and it looks like at the beginning of the manga (minus the flashbacks to Ed and Al losing their mom and of course the Ishbal flashbacks later) Roy Mustang is already a Colonel. Is that correct?
If if is not, what chapter (and/or about what part in the story line) does he become a Colonel?
My story starts when they are stationed in East City, a little less than a year before what happens to Hughes (no spoilers!!) and before Mustang and his men are transferred to Central City. (if I did the math right, my story starts in mid 1913, and what happens to Hughes- it happens in early 1914.)
So putting him as a Colonel (and Hughes as a Lt. Colonel) should be correct, right?
Thanks in advance for your help.
