Elric + Homonculus family tree by metaXzero Elric + Homonculus family tree by metaXzero
My first upload to Deviantart. May start uploading actual drawings in the future.

Today, I came to a realization about the Elric family. And it really makes me lol. I'm surprised no one has brought this up anywhere. Ed and Al being the uncles to 4 nephews (IDK about King Bradley and Envy has no gender so....yeah) and 1 niece. It's hilarious!

Well, here goes my first upload (to Deviant art and the Internet) EVAAH!



Also IDK crap about categories

........Well enjoy. Plz comment.

EDIT: Seems Arakawa-san acknowledged this at some point (though rather quietly IMO). And I thought I discovered something :(

Well, she forgot the Elric bros. niece-in-law, Mrs. Bradley. So I figured out 1 thing :p

Thank you Lahtikahjo for pointing that out :D

Can you do Lyra's family tree from the 2003 series?

I don't remember Lyra having any family there.

Is Lyra an orphan?

From what I remember, there was no real backstory for Lyra. She was introduced as a bodyguard for Yoki who wanted to become a State Alchemist one day. She was a side character, so we never got focus on her and she never went over her life before Yoki.

And as we know, she would never get the chance again after Dante kills her.

I personally believe she didn't deserve the fate she got in the anime. Dante shouldn't have killed her. It should have been Clara/Psiren's body that Dante would take over.

More than likely, if Lyra hadn't shown up at Dante's mansion to eventually be tricked into being Dante's new body, Lyra probably wouldn't have shown up again (just like Clara never showed up again). Both Lyra and Clara were basically one shot characters. Lyra just ended up with a slight extension to her role in the story.

Lyra is younger than Clara by a year

I don't think Lyra's age was ever stated. Clara is apparently 24, but Lyra is just known as being in her mid-20s.

I hope you don't mind, but here is a technically fan made duo comparison of the elrics and a pair of brothers that would make excellent evil counterparts. I say technically because the characters (and story for the matter) are based on both versions of the FMA stories.

First the elders. Edward vs Majhal (Father): both bare extreme contempt for their father, Hohenheim and both are masters at alchemy. In addition both have an Oedipus complex (Edward got into alchemy in order to please his mom; Dante became known to the Homunculi as "mother" and was de-facto Majhal's bride). In addition both have an inferiority complex (Edward's famous napoleonic complex and Majhal's plans to become god). However, while Edward is mostly heroic and would guard life to his best efforts, breaking down when he fails, Majhal cares not for any life not associated with him and like ants he gives no hesitation on murdering any one of them.

and now we go for the youngers. Alphonse vs Fraud (Envy): both were once human and through alchemy, were made into something else (Alphonse became a suit of armor and the boy who would become Fraud became a Homunculus). In addition both look up to their brothers, though Fraud does so for his own interests. However, while Alphonse is pretty much the purest, noblest little boy who wouldn't even dream of hurting others, Fraud is hateful, ruthless, manipulative and above all, genocidally sadistic. 

hope you liked it.

Okay, I know that I'm a terrible, horrible (nerdy) person for pointing this out, but someone has to: the pictures you used of Gluttony, Trisha, and Greed are from the first anime, not Brotherhood.

I knew that. At the time I made this, it was really hard to find pics of them from Brotherhood. Eventually I gave up and just told myself "eh, they didn't change much compared to say King Bradley who got a thicker mustache.

You forgot Dante.

Though making a joint manga/anime family tree sounds crazy. Especially with things like how Envy is Ed's nephew in one universe, and his brother in another.

:iconheroicrebellion:
HeroicRebellion Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2013
Actually I didn't include the manga homunculi because they are classified as "blood kin". Also Dante isn't really an Elric, dispute the fact that she was hohenheim's lover and she wanted edward inside her (gross).

They'd still be related and have grounds for being on the family tree. Though I honestly don't get why the wikia uses "blood kin" when even Arakawa made a 4koma calling the Homunculi Ed and Al's nephews and niece (and having them demand an allowance from them).

As for Dante, while her and Hohenheim may not have formally married, their relationship certainly wasn't just a little fling. You don't have a son with someone and spend centuries together with them and say the relationship was just 2 lovers. Just seems way too weird to include Envy and not his mom.

:iconheroicrebellion:
HeroicRebellion Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2013
I'll give you the Homunculi one, though I will offer you an analogy for Dante. Let's say for the sake of argument, your mother has a sister who married and had 2 kids who grew up and probably went to college. Now, if your Aunt and Uncle were to be divorced, the aunt would still be related and the cousins would still be related, but legally the Uncle has no more family relations to you.

:iconmetaxzero:
metaXzero Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2013
But that still leaves the issue of if you're including those cousins on the family tree, logically you'd include their parents who lead to their birth. It'd be one thing if that Uncle and Aunt didn't have kids while they were together, but since they did, the tree looks weird if you just have an aunt with kids and seemingly no father (despite knowing who the father was).

I guess you could add a little note saying the couple that created the cousins are no longer together. But to leave them off completely despite the inclusion of the kids is just weird to me.

That's where it's up to Ed and Winry, and (depending on who you ask..) Al and Mei, to fill it back up, I guess xD

Oh believe me. I am of the Almei/Almay (freaking spelling) camp :p

Though yeah. Ed and Win have started off good so far.

LOL I've always preferred "Mei", as it seems like the more Chinese/Xingese spelling of it. When doing tags on pics, though, I've always put both spellings. xD

Indeed they have. Two little ones already!
Reply
:iconmetaxzero:
metaXzero Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012
I did too. But the official spelling ended up being "May". Which I was fine with. But it it's just that Almei has been the ship name for so long, leading to most images being under it.

Even though FMA is done, it would've been nice to get more out of the shipping then just the 2 being together in the new family photo. Though that is still wonderful

paper-rust Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012  Student Digital Artist
That and the fact "Almay" is a makeup brand.. xD

Yea, indeed. Though I was kinda sad that Brotherhood added Paninya and Garfiel(sp?) into the picture, it kinda made Mei's presence less significant.
Reply
:iconmetaxzero:
metaXzero Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012
Yeah, that bothered me alot too. In the manga, May's presence with no other non-Elrics in the picture which combined with her crush on Al and the fact that the picture recreates the original family photo leads to the new picture implying that May is now considered as part of the Elric family.

In Brotherhood, it just seems like "Elric family and friends" with May easy to lump in with Paninya and Garfiel. :/

Ah well, the original manga picture is all I need.

in the old series Ed's older half bro is Envy, also known as Cornelius Elric. but him being father's little brother is all the more funny.

This is so twisted and hilarious at the same time. I love how Bradley is on his own genetic line but then becomes related to Ed and Al. oO Scary. XD Yikes..that would mean that Ling is Ed and Al's nephew also. OO

It's one of the omakes in volume 23 of the manga. At least in Japan; they cut off some of the omakes in the releases in some countries (it's not in the Finnish vol.23 for sure D: )
