Alphonse Elric (brother) Trisha Elric (mother, deceased) Van Hohenheim (father, deceased) Homunculi (blood kin) Winry Rockbell (wife, post-manga) Sara Rockbell (mother-in-law, deceased) Urey Rockbell (father-in-law, deceased) Pinako Rockbell (grandmother-in-law) Unnamed Son Unnamed Daughter Envy (half brother, 2003 anime only, deceased) Edward Elric (エドワード・エルリック, Edowādo Erurikku), the Fullmetal Alchemist (鋼の錬金術師, Hagane no Renkinjutsushi), is the titular protagonist of the Fullmetal Alchemist series.
After losing his right arm and left leg due to a failed Human Transmutation attempt, Ed became the youngest State Alchemist in history by achieving his certification at age twelve.
His left leg from just above the knee downward is automail and his automail right arm reaches all the way up to his shoulder; both are designed so that their outer shells resemble modernized plate mail.
As the series progresses, some of Edward's facial features (his nose and chin) begin to take on characteristics similar to his father's.
At the end of the series, Edward is shown to have grown noticeably taller, being several inches taller than Winry and finally being at least equal in height to Alphonse.
Early on in the manga, Ed receives a thin, horizontal battle scar just above his right eye, which remains because his subsequent battles cause the sensitive skin to tear open repeatedly.
As of Chapter 76, however, the scar appears to have healed over completely.
In Chapter 56, it is revealed that he does this intentionally, presumably to add to his height.
Ed's eyes, too, are gold, signifying his Xerxesian ancestry.
