I'm hoping this is where Riza comes in. I've felt since I saw him kill Lust that manga!Roy was a ruthless SOB, and Riza may not just be supporting him in his goal - she may be there to keep him in line and stop him from going power mad.

Considering Lust was evil and about to take out Al and Riza, and tried to take out Havoc and Roy, as well as untold manipulations and deaths of other peope, as well as the potential for many more, forgive me if I'm less than resentful of his actions against her.


--------------------
Attention Manga Lust fans:
Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction.
In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.

I'm sure as hell not resentful, but he had his "eyes of a killer" look to him.

He did the right thing by protecting those who needed to be protected. I'm not criticising his actions at all. But can you image anime!Roy doing that?

I haven't seen all the anime yet, but I'm seeing a huge difference in how anime!Roy and manga!Roy have dealt psychologically with the war in Ishbal, and with being a soldier in general. When you compare them, they're like completely different characters. That's why I'm thinking manga!Roy may be heading in a different direction to his anime counterpart.

Sorry. That whole bit about being a ruthless sonnova....kinda threw me off, there.

It's all right. My fault. I didn't really make myself clear.



(Personally, I like him better this way.)
