I just found out that Kimblee's last name was Zolof, so, I had to make the joke. Enjoy, for the joke is so bad it's funny.





That was creepily easy to draw.

Isn't that his first name?

The joke still stands? xD

Nope, it's his last.

In Japan surnames are said first and first names last when stating a full name.

Except that doesn't seem to apply to the Elric brothers...or the Rockbell family...or the Armstrong family...or anyone else in the series >_>;...seems they do use the western way in FMA.

So okay, maybe his first name is Zolof.

FMA appears to be in a western setting, so the name thing would make sense. Besides which, why would they call him by his first name? It'd be like saying "Colonel Roy".

Even teh sexy eastern people from Xing seem to follow the western naming pattern. I think...

Come to think of it, do any of them even have last names thus far? I think Mei might've said her's, but I'm too lazy to look.

But yeah, it does seem that FMA characters have that naming pattern...

It's just the middle initial in Kimblee's name throws me off >_>;;...after watching so much One Piece and stuff. Monkey D. Luffy, Zolof J. Kimblee...yadda yadda yadda.

Kimblee's going to be the pirate king!! XD

And the people from Xing confuse the heck outta me. Which country are they based on? O.o Sometimes I think it's China, and sometimes I think it's Japan.

Xing is so China.

Amestria seems rather western European with a dash of early Americas (Mostly cuz of the Youswell Mine Town)

Drachma is probably something like Russia, or...blah, the whole mountain border thing reminds me of the Himilayan Mountains, so I'm thinking Drachma itself will resemble. some Asian country around that area.

And I the other two random countries that I can't remember the names of...I dunno, we know nothing about them, so heh.

I thought so (about Xing being China) but then those bodyguards who resembled ninjas popped up and confused me. I could be wrong, though, as the only thing I know about ancient China is from Chinese soap operas. Coulda sworn those little throwing knives were Japanese, though...

They're Chinese-based. The masks are Chinese, the clothing, pretty much everything. Not sure about the throwing knives since I'm not too familiar with small Chinese weaponry (they did use alot of knives though) but everything else fits the pattern, including the name.

Zolof seems to be the first name, if I remember the order correctly as Zolof J. Kimblee.
