I just finnished rewatching the series for my second time, and I noticed something new this time:

Scar's brother called Scar by his real name.

I know, I know, Scar left Lust without telling her what his name was... which makes this one of those subtle details that's easy to miss.

It's in the flashback when Scar tells Ed about what had happened between him and his brother, Scar's brother is about to die and he calls Scar: Al

I was wondering if anyone else had noticed, and I just had some interesting thoughts on it:

I just thought Scar and Alphonse made a good team. They were both the brothers to great alchemists who desperately wanted to bring the dead back to life. Both Scar and Alphonse tried to prevent their brothers from doing it (though Alphonse eventually participated). I just thought it was cool that they share the same real name ^ ^

Any thoughts?

That's odd.
I wish I knew the episode
('Al' doesn't seem very Ishbalan, does it? tongue.gif)

It might have been a variatian, Al still being his nickname.
Interesting topic, though.

I believe it was in "The Holy Mother"... when he talks to Ed a bit after Lust dagger pins his automail.

No, it's not a very Ishbalan name >_> I thought that too, I had to rewind and relisten, but that was definitely it. Probably a nickname, but still. I thought it was pretty sweet.

Yes I do remember seeing that...and it was indeed in the Holy Mother episode...his brother does call him by his real name which Ironically was Al...Maybe it was shortened from a more Ishbalian name but who knows?

Meh...I'd have to hear it to believe it. I've got the whole Holy Mother arc in English, so if someone would give me the episode and segment I'd check it out. But I don't want to browse scenes indefinitely on what just might be a wild goosechase or mistaken hearing.

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 think you have a point there.

And they sure make a good team.
And many times in the series Al has kinda teamed up with scar , i dint see Ed anywhere.

But about the fact scars brother calling him Al huh.gif ...ummm i guess i havent noticed or may be missed it...

Its actually in the episode "The Scar". I just watched it. Oh my god, thats awesome. its around 16:10 if you happen to have the episode on your computer. Its right after scar's brother gives him his arm. I just assumed in the past when I watched it that he said "now" but I just rewound it 5 times and theres no "N" there, its definitely "Al" (whenever my friends say Al every once in a while I think they say "ow" haha) Wow, I think your theory's right. Thats why he seems so trusting and compassionate to him.

Ah I'm shaking! Thats so awesome!

As for not being "Ishbalen" enough, Rick and Leo arent very Ishbalen names now are they? besides, other than them, we dont know any Ishbalens by name.

Scar loses his arm, and when he wakes up he has an arm again and his brother doesnt. He transmuted his arm onto Scar. Episode 40
