Lightbulb Ed and Al's Dad?

Hi! This is my first post, but I just wanted to get you guy's opinions.

In episode 15 we were introduced (Not verbally, but by implication) to another state Alchemist from the Ishbar Rebellion era. He's a cruel fellow, with long brown hair and a moon-shaped trans. circle tatooed on both of his hands; (Reminds me alot of Gen. Gran)

I, personally, think that this fellow is Ed and Al's dad, but I could be wrong. Here's why:

Warning! Possible Spoilers!!! Highlight to read!


A.) Why I think he's the father:

1.) The series casts a bit of a bad light on Ed and Al's father, with their explicit dislike of him. They seem to think that he's a selfish, cruel man for leaving their mother. Fits right in with the personality he showed there.

2.) The series/editor/animators focused on this particular alchemist as much as they focused on other important characters during this segment; Dr. Marco, Col. Mustang, Armstrong, and Gran.

3.) He has the same color of hair that Al had when he still had a body

4.) He has Ed's golden eyes, and the same body build.


B.) Why I'm not sure he's their father:

1.) Col. Mustang was searching for Ed and Al's father Hohenheim in the beginning; but he became more interested in Ed as a state alchemist. If the man was already a state alchemist, then that would make the search a moot point.

2.) Hohenheim refused to help perform a human transmutation with Majhal in episode 4; which isn't the same character portrayal as what was in that segment

3.) I don't think their mother would miss a character such as that man as much as she did.



Any other reasons/suggestions? I wanna know what everyone else thinks!! Oh- And if you really know the answer, don't post it!!

I wanna know what their intuition says, so don't read the next four posts or so until AFTER you've voted!!

Hmmm... But, then again, I've seen alot of people who don't look fatherly and are fathers... I mean, it doesn't take being father material to become one, after all. All you have to do is have the sex drive.

I have a feeling the Elric father is connected to Lust, Gluttony, and all those other "people". I don't know if he's dedicated or not but soemthing tells me he stayed away from his sons for a very good reason.
