Father is the primary antagonist of the manga, Fullmetal Alchemist, and its anime adaptation, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.Arguably the most powerful alchemist to have ever lived, Father is a major player in the Non Disney Villains Tournament, though he does very little fighting himself, instead choosing to act through his "children," the Seven Homunculi. He is no less adept in gaining the trust of people he needs, mostly by promises and inspiring declarations, playing on their desires and telling them what they want to hear. The Stone, now in a liquid state and containing Greed's soul, is then consumed by Father. Homunculi He is the oldest Homunculus and the progenitor of the Homunculi, creating them directly or indirectly. Summary. Even after all those years, Father still cares about Hohenheim somewhat. He wears his long, golden-blond hair in a loose, shoulder-length ponytail with two or three loose strands of hair falling over his brow and sports a full Donegal-style beard on his square jaw.

Riza Hawkeye supporting him, and Major Alex Louis Armstrong spearheading the attack. Father's extremely personal interpretations of Truth's works have a logical flaw, according to Edward Elric. However, Al and Hohenheim managed to shield everyone at great expanse to their physical beings. Alkahestry was unaffected by Father's barrier because Alkahestry uses energy from the Earth's chi instead, which allows Scar and Mei Chang to continue using their alchemy even when Father blocks Amestrian Alchemy. Those with advice most of all and if you decide to flame me I will use those flames to help make smores with my friends just so you know. He is also able to change the atomic structure of matter to the point of turning a stone floor into liquid, among other things. Father claims that Truth (the consciences of alchemists) is a personal God, and since Father considers himself perfectly good, he also thinks that God is on his side, and that by absorbing God, he becomes absolutely perfect. Species Goals Ultimately, in his final moments, Father's motivation is revealed to be freedom from the laws of the universe itself, and his dedication to his goals makes him all the more menacing. Father inherited much knowledge from the Eye, and, was originally a part of the existence within the Gate. He has long, blond hair, golden eyes and a slender, muscular body. Edward pleads for him to spare Ling, but Father makes it clear that he does not care for anyone not a part of his plan. And even then Hohenheim put a dent in his entire plans. Homunculi (ホムンクルス, Homunkurusu) are an race of artificial humanoids that serve as the primary antagonistic force in Fullmetal Alchemist who were created by the Homunculus Father by extracting what he believed to be his natural flaws into fragments of his Philosopher's Stone. The Elric brothers care that Roy cares for them. While Father's scheme was to repeat his actions at Xerxes to create another Philosopher's Stone, he now requires an eclipse to become a "perfect being", ("the sun symbolizes a man, and the moon symbolizes a woman, when they come together they become a perfect being" -Edward Elric) and five alchemists that had opened the Gate as human sacrifices. The Dwarf in the Flask is finally banished to whence he came. Knowing that fighting the alchemists would only further weaken his ability to contain "God" within him, Father takes to the surface of Central Command to claim the souls of the nearby Briggs soldiers and replenish his stone, but an attack from Hohenheim makes him lose concentration.

Father's final form, containing a 'miniature sun' within his hand. He is the deeply linked and connected to Van Hohenheim and was the creator of the Homunculus that represent the seven deadly sins. Homunculus used this opportunity and instructed the king to construct a giant transmutation circle out of the kingdom, creating bloodshed at specific nodes of the circle. Father's fourth form looks much like a younger version of Hohenheim. Father remains unseen during the first part of the story. This superiority complex increased into a god complex when Father became a living Philosopher's Stone. From there, in his full form, Father tears open the Gate of Truth with his bare hands; absorbing the higher power he calls "God". Father merely shrugs these attacks off, shielding himself with an impenetrable barrier of alchemical energy, but the soldiers are ordered to stand clear as a deluge of flame washes over their inhuman foe; though Father is unharmed by the attack, Colonel Mustang, Major Armstrong and Lieutenant Hawkeye have appeared on the scene. Gold Toothed Doctor | Given his immense knowledge, he is rarely taken aback. The Briggs soldiers, pouring out from Central Command, open fire on him with rifles, rockets and machine guns, giving the alchemists time to get to safety.

Occupation Father remains unseen for most of the first part of the events. The most common shape he took was that of a slightly obese humanoid with eyes with red irises adorning his black body and a wide grin on his otherwise nonexistent face.

Yoki, Crichton Family Hohenheim's Master Both Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and the latter half of the manga of Soul Eater were developed by Studio Bones, inspiring several new characters in the series, one of which being Table of Contents, a mysterious character that has numerous similarities to Father, acting as the leader of a group of characters based on the seven deadly sins, and was created by another character infatuated with the path of knowledge. "Father" The Dwarf in the Flask: Homunculus. He had to remain in the flask in which he had been created, otherwise, he would have died. Unique Trait Unfortunately, even with everyone working together, Father remains unharmed and declares that the humans are incapable of penetrating his defenses.

As he claps his hands together to compensate for the damage done to his Flame Alchemy gloves, Roy remarks that he hasn't yet gotten the hang of circle-free transmutation and attacks Father with flames again, but Father simply absorbs the flames and reflects them back at Mustang. Date of Creation Van Hohenheim, also known as slave #23, was a citizen of Xerxes and a regular human being who was employed by King Xerxes' alchemist. Evolved Also, though he considers the Homunculi to be his children, he never expressed grief for any of their demises. Confined within a flask, the Homunculus formed an attachment to the young slave boy whose blood had been used in his creation, naming him Hohenheim and teaching him alchemy, the knowledge of which was viewed by the boy as freedom. He can absorb objects and even people into himself, (which renders him fatter when he absorbs big objects or well-built people.) Alias He came to the world knowing already every existing concept. Once the transmutation process is completed, in a new youthful body, Father states to the alchemists how he "imprisoned God" within his body and possesses all the knowledge and power of "God". However, even point-blank, Scar's alchemy is unable to harm Father. Arrogant and self-righteous, he deems only power over and ownership of the world, "perfect goodness and being", and "divine order" worthy of his attention, and he seeks to become absolutely "superior" to the human race. At the present, after expending his own supply of souls to create the Homunculi, Father looks like a tall, elderly man with long, platnium blond hair (unlike Hohenheim's golden blond hair) and a beard, golden eyes, and a wrinkled face with a third eye that can open on his forehead.

Edward and Alphonse use their alchemy to attack Father, with no avail; Father is entirely unharmed by their attacks before he merely stomps his foot to seal off all alchemy in Central. If there’s an anime that showcases the diversity of fathers very well, Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood is a great choice. At the very beginning when he was only named "Homunculus", Father looked like an orb of dark matter, (likely pure, physical knowledge) who could form an eye, a grinning mouth, and some small tendrils. Unlike Lust or Envy, Father has also stated that he feels no such hatred or contempt towards humans. After he gives himself a Hohenheim-looking container: To become perfectly good by removing all of his seven cardinal sins (partially failed? Even his "children" are nothing but tools to his eyes, as evidenced when he did not pay the slightest bit of attention to Pride's highly weakened state, which he could have fixed in a matter of seconds, at the time of the final battle.

Aliases He retains his fourth form and the powers that go with it even after having lost the Amestrians' souls, but as he lacks the strength to keep "God" inside his new body, the new power is too much of a strain on him, and as of chapter 107, it renders him vulnerable to counterattack. The life of an insect is so beneath you that it would be a waste of your time to even consider judging it.

Father's first form is a small round mass of black gas with a single eye, a wide toothy mouth, and tendril-like arms, making him resemble the Eye of Truth from inside the Gate (This might be because Father was created from the entity's essence). His control over alchemic energy skyrockets as well, and he becomes able to fire tremendous energy blasts from every direction, to make them last as long as he wants and even to increase their already immense magnitude tenfold, and to absorb human souls without rituals.
