Bio:Edward is born in a small town named Resembool in the Amestris countryside. He lived with his younger brother, Alphonse Elric, and both of his parents, Trisha Elric and Hohenheim, until Hohenheim embarked on a journey when Edward was still a small child. Shortly after Hohenheim's departure, Trisha falls ill and dies, leaving the two young boys as orphans. Their neighbor, Pinako Rockbell, then begins looking after them. During that time, they diligently study alchemy in the hopes that they will be able to bring their mother back to life. After a chance meeting with a skilled alchemist named Izumi Curtis, Edward and his brother become her apprentices. When they return home from their training, they proceed to try Human transmutation in their father's study. The brothers not only fail to bring their mother back to life, but it also costs Edward his left leg and Alphonse his entire body. Edward then performs a second transmutation, sacrificing his own right arm to bind Alphonse's soul to a nearby suit of armor. Edward becomes a State Alchemist in order to find a way to recover their bodies through use of the legendary Philosopher's Stone. Winry Rockbell, his childhood friend, also outfits him with prosthetic automail limbs to replace those that he lost. Thus, because of these metal parts, Edward is nicknamed the "Fullmetal Alchemist".

Edward Elric is an alchemical prodigy. He is the youngest State Alchemist to be selected by the Amestris State Military, having achieved the rank of Major at age twelve. His father's disappearance when Edward was young, the death of his mother, and a failed transmutation play a key role in his story. Edward's motivation stems from a love for his brother Alphonse Elric, for whom he is desperately seeking a way to restore to a human form after their alchemy accident. Due to this, he is also generally perceived to be very independent; he feels that he's the only one who can solve a problem. He is reluctant to accept help unless he feels it is absolutely necessary. Often, he feels a heavy guilt that the problem is his fault to begin with, and thus his responsibility to solve. This gives him a selfless inclination.

Edward is extremely short for his age, but despite his small frame, he is compactly muscular. He is very sensitive about his height, and will humorously overreact to any comment about it. He makes a habit of breaking out into rants and frenzied outbursts. Despite all of the obstacles that Edward tackles in the story, he still displays a childish personality when it comes to things he despises, such as needles and milk. He is extremely idealistic--often to a fault--and strongly believes in Equivalent Exchange, using it as his personal philosophy. Despite his occasional bouts of immaturity, he is a selfless, strong, independent young adult that gains a reputation as a "hero of the people".
