Hello everyone. Welcome to Anime Hound. Today we’ll be discussing some Edward Elric Facts that you may not know. Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood both are amazing shows that have captured our hearts. Edward Elric is the leading and one of the most interesting characters of this show. Let’s see how much you truly know him.
20 Edward Elric Facts Every Fullmetal Alchemist Fan Should Know:
Edward’s name means “rich guard”, derived from the Old English elements ead “wealth, fortune” and weard “guard”.
Though Edward is ambidextrous in combat, he writes with his left hand, likely due to the fact that his right is artificial.
The new Elric family photo bears a resemblance to the old Elric family photo taken with Van Hohenheim, Ed, Al, and Trisha, with Ed replacing Hohenheim (with a smile this time) and Winry replacing Trisha. Alphonse and May Chang are add-ins in the photo, as are and Garfiel and Paninya at least in the anime.
Edward is – as a direct descendant of Van Hohenheim – close blood kin to Father and all the seven Homunculi (though King Bradley can be a slight exception, as he is a human-based Homunculus but still shares the close blood kin to Edward like the others). Additionally, Arakawa has jokingly confirmed that, in the manga, Edward (along with Alphonse) is technically uncle to the seven Homunculi, as he relates to them by blood.
As a State Alchemist, Edward Elric technically held the rank of “Major”. At the age of 12, Edward became the youngest state alchemist in history.
