  1. The philosopher stone, The black star, the same stone known by many names, but only one fact is certain, the stones creation will cost human lives. However, there is one item strong enough to face the philosopher stone and to reverse the stones affects, such as humunculus transformation, and returning chimeras to their normal state. Though it's name have been lost in the ages, it's placement and creation have been wishpered. The item have been given the name 'Forbidden sand' by rumor, however it's appearance is also uncertain. You will travel across the sea, to a new land known as engliten (Eng*Lit*en), in search of it.








    Alchemy and Alkahestry:

    Alchemy- The understanding of comprehension, Deconstruction and reconstruction of matter. Alchemy can used in many of ways, however it will always follow its first law, equal exchange. With out a philosophers stone Alchemy can not be used to treat wounds.

  6. Name: Acias Corona

    Age: 21

    Gender: Female

    Race: Human

    Appearance: See attached file, except with the standard blue military uniform and

    • Basic Medical Kit
    • She has a pair of gloves (Basically Colonel Mustang's Gloves) that when rubbed together, produces fire. (My god, I love that guy's gloves XD)
    • And a bag full of basic necessities
    • Silver State Alchemist Pocket Watch
    • And two hidden knives, which jut out of her sleeves, but may cause her gloves to rip, which, just in case, she keeps around 7 pairs of gloves in her bag.
    Have You Seen The Truth: Yes

    Automail: Yes

    Sexuality: No preference

    Home country: Amestris

    Ever since she began to read, she was interested in alchemy. Acias began reading about alchemy since she was 4. She started to transmute items when she was 6. But nothing could stop her mother from getting caught by a deadly sickness, that was going around her town, which was about 18 miles from Resembool. Soon, her mother died during sleep, and the little family of three was devastated. Acias became distant and more absorbed in her books, and her father became an alcoholic. Her father also died after getting mugged, while he wandered alone in the town, drunk. Acias delved into human transmutation and attempted it. All she was able to do was lose both of her legs. After getting automail replacements and undergoing rehabilitation at the age of 15, Acias became a state alchemist, soon after, as well as the title 'Flare Alchemist'. She caught wind of information on the Philosopher's stone, and she was consumed with the idea of finding it to get her original body back, so she went to the land of Engliten.

    Knowledge: Acias has a very deep understanding of alchemy or specifically fire alchemy. She can crete fire out of her gloves, or simply, any space with oxygen to burn. So confined room, no fire. She has little or no knowledge of alkahestry.

    Extra: She has two hidden blades not only in her sleeves, but also in her legs, and can transmute her automail it make it really sharp and lethal.

    Theme Song: Down By Thousand Foot Krutch

    Relationships?: Nah, or at least, yet.

Though in Renka's eyes the though of having that ablilty and using it for the better though of good convinced her to do so. With this on her 18 birthday she left her home of Ishval and headed out into the world. Alkahestry was always a natrual to her because of her natural urge of wanting to help and heal others the best she can. That's where she got the idea of wanting to become a travling "Healer's Aid" And did so the night after her birthday. Though Oddly enough Alchemy didn't come to her naturally. It was her Lover Johnathan D'earth who is a alchemist that taught her and annoyed her to death about it. Even now she must still pratice and learn more about Alchemy to better suit her if she wants to help others. Since she's left she's obtain the nickname the "Medicinal Alchemist."

  9. Great characters you guys! Now, I do have a question, any ideas from you two? I like it when everyone puts a the RP together, normally that means they stay.

    @Mei Kazama
  10. Ummm, Well i think the characters should all have a common goal thus leding them to either work together to obtain the goal or work against eachother to get it for the selves.

  11. I thought the same, However @Katherine character is looking for a philosopher stone, while my two are looking for the Forbidden sand
  12. Hm... Not really sure.
    Perhaps, all the characters are attacks by a common enemy, which get all of the protagonists to fight together? Maybe the antagonists have the Forbidden Sand, but Acias could figure out that the Forbidden sand can be used as a replacement for the red stone later on.
    Just a thought.
  13. I'll make one soon.

  15. Sounds Good, I have 3 antagonist so far. Also, the Forbidden sand haves power to create whole new life when used with human transmutation, only I don't think it should by pass quilte exchange. Maybe it could also be used as a ingredient enhancer.
  16. Maybe grant homunculi Alchemy? Please, I do need opinions.

  17. Name: Johnathan D'earth

    Age: 24

    Gender: Male

    Race: Human

    Appearance: Johnathan stands about 6'5", and weighs a hefty 328lbs. His hair is jet black, styled and slick, and he constantly wears sunglasses. His style also pays homage to the great Major Armstrong, as evidenced by the (gloriously bushy) mustache and tendency to rip apart his shirts. He is heavily muscled, though pale, and wears thick iron gauntlets similar to Armstrong's. The thick gauntlets have the phrase "Laufet, Brüder, eure Bahn, Freudig, wie ein Held zum Siegen" etched on them, a phrase from Friederich Schiller's 'Ode to Joy'.

    Inventory: Iron Gauntlets [nicknamed 'The Odes'], several extra shirts, his signed Alex Louis Armstrong action figure, trail rations, a water canteen.

    Have You Seen The Truth: No. He attempts to make up for this by having transmutation circles etched upon the palms of his gauntlets.

    Automail: No, though his gauntlets often cause confusion in this case.

    Sexuality: Straight.

    Home country: Amestris.

    Background: Having grown up hearing the tales of heroism of the likes of Fullmetal, Flame, and most importantly, the Strong Arm Alchemist, Johnathan decided at an early age that he was going to be 'just like them'. His focus in his studies was to emulate Armstrong's alchemy; although he only partially succeeded, his own mixture of kinetic-based alchemy and physical strength, stature, and stamina make him a very formidable opponent. He now seeks the Forbidden Sands, called to adventure by it's siren song. To Engliten, where his fate awaits him.

    Alchemy - Johnathan uses a type of alchemy that manipulates kinetic energy. He can transfer kinetic energy from one object to another, so long as he is touching both objects. He can also drain kinetic energy from a projectile and apply it to his own strikes and thrusts, making him effectively bulletproof. (Unfortunately, due to his tendency to go shirtless, he's especially susceptible to bladed weapons.)

    Alkahestry - He is well-versed in the theory of alkahestry, and so can recognize it when it is being used; he is, however, unskilled in it's use.

  18. I think that would be cool that humnculls to use alchemy to be honest. though scary as well.

  19. Perhaps the reason the homunculi are seeking the Sand is because the rumor states that it can grant them the one thing they lack:

  20. Approved! I like him! I'm so happy to have a Arm Strong fan (: personally I'm a homunculus fan, hence my tattoo.
