Anyway I agree with you, and almost everyone else, that Scar is in no way related to Ed and Al. He seemed to know the code names for all the state alchemists. I'd say Scar was busy doing some research on various state alchemists in the time between Ed and Al first seeing him, and the start of his killing spree. It would be stupid of him not to.
It's great that FMA finally got it's own forum.
Scar did mention his brother cursed him with that mark of 'death'


in manga als' armour explodes a little more ^_^ not just a crack.

I think it was last week or something, I downloaded the manga called FMA gaiden which I only glanced through and I saw the same fight as the one in episode 14. was that fight just filler?

A Gaiden is something outside of the main plotline. The gaiden tw released was at the end of volume 3. All of the previous episode was basically a stringing together of parts of chapters and gaidens from random volumes. And his arm does not tell him who is a national alchemist....

Scar seems to have some sort of power in that arm, enough to kill state alchemists. If it wasn't given to him by an alchemist, it'd just be a normal arm. Since it isn't just a normal arm, there has to be an alchemist involved somehow. The simplest explaination is his brother was an alchemist. I'm sure there are other possible explainations, but that one seems to fit the best.

It seems as if the whole situation is a different one there, I couldn't see a Dr.Marcus or a General Gran. The situation is more like:

gran said something like it amplifies their power, but became unstable after a number of uses.... like the ring cornero had. so it's just a limited use stone, each use coming closer to the point where the stone becomes unstable and does wierd stuff.

another point of why i don't think scar can be ed & al's uncle... their mom had brown hair, scar's bro had black hair.... usually hair color's are the same from father to son in most anime...... unless there's those wierd blue and green and purple hair... then you throw it all out.


annnyhow. those are my opinions.

I was in shock after seeing how easy/quickly Gran got killed. I was expecting him to last a lil longer. The way he pop up, I thought he would had a more major role. That was totally unexpected. Btw, is the manga even finish for FMA?

According to an old interview, Arakawa plans to have the manga go on for a total of 20 years.
He isn't being very realistic imho, but that's besides the point.

But anyhow, i got this strange feeling of The Lion King when i saw they called him Scar, all that is remaining is that his brothers name was Mufasa, and Ed and Al are actually called Timon and Pumbaa

Yeah... I did not like that name Scar as well....... but that character is pretty intense... he's a one man killing machine.. which is great!

I wonder if Roze is alright.... hopefully she ain't dead or anything in the next episode.....

Scar may be a lame name, but we're a bit out of options. It could have been worse. They could have called him X man. I wonder if they have a term for "anti" alchemists like him. Then they'd call him Anti-Alchemist X. Or something.

Or maybe Mr. Multiply since X is the multiplication symbol. There we go.

Hmm... 'Anti-Alchemist X' is probably what they'd call him if the series was ever dubbed. (Remember 'samurai x'?)

Here's what I think will happen. First I want to point out that Scar being Ed's uncle isn't as farfetched, I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case, but anyway here's my out-take on everything.


These last few eps have been hinting towards what? That's right! The ishbar Massacre (flashback atleast. ) Anywho, Scar obiviously started killing Alchemists recently since there's only been nine (ten if you consider Gran) killed by Scar. And also he started killing during the time Al was still in Central City three years ago. So if Scar and his brother were related to the Ishbar Massacre then he would of had a a few months of "thinking" or surviving whichever, then he could of went on his killing rampage.

During the scene in which Scar was about to kill Marco, Marco obiviously knew him before he became Scar. And Marco disappeared after the Ishbar inccident. Scar also refers to himself sometimes, as "we" meaning two people, is it God? Or his brother? Well, when Ed accidently ripped off his shirt, his whole right arm was tattoo'd with what looks to me to be Alchemist symbols, look at it this way, if its possible to throw someones soul into a piece of armor, then its not so impossible to throw someones soul into an arm. Maybe that powerful arm is his brother inside of it.

On to the episode cutscenes, Gran is holding the same type of bottle he had before, that made the Philospher's Stone. So the Ishbar Massacre had to deal with the stone, or research of it. I think both Scar and his brother were involved in the research of the stone. And that his brother (or both) were in the same military, hince why they would know so much about the other alchemist and so little about Ed and Al. The two must of travelled to Ishbar for whatever reasons, and began researching the Philospher's Stone. What's happening in Corenilla right now? The army is killing "rebels" and who are rebels? Believers of God. And who is Scar killing in the name of? (Not Rage Against the Machine. ) God. So Ishbar must of been another "cleansing" mission.

Scar also says Ed had very "strong eyes" eyes that could see far beyond anything else, and what's the utlimate thing an Alchemist can create? That stone, and what are both Ed and Al in search of now? That exact thing. My theory is that Scar and his brother developed the formula to create the stones, or a method very close to it. And something happened in Ishbar weither Lust and company had something to do with it, or if the people of Ishbar converted them, I don't know, but something happened that made them betray the military and use the stone against them.

Marco knew of Scar and his brother's attempt at making the stones. Or maybe Macro was the only one the brother's trusted or even helped them with the reasearch itself, hell they said 5 years ago Macro was using the stone in question, right? Well maybe he found a way to it but the brothers further helped him. Either way the brothers didn't want to give the info to the military and thus had the military kill them, but that's when the brother fused himself into Scar's arm, and Marco realizing what he did was horrible and wrong took all the info that they all had and just ran, becoming a full time doctor to repent for the sins he had committed, thats why he wasn't sad or horrified by Scar, and welcomed death.

Well, thats my two cents.

Wrong, they didnt make it there and I really doubt that Scar and his brother were in the research, I think they were in Ishbar when the military purged the city, anyway the military USED the stone against the civilians, we've seen how Basque used it, becoming that terminator-bunker thing.

Also, in the episode with Nina, when Scar touches the chimera, he gets information from his arm, so basically, his arm gave him all the information about the Military's alchemist.
