I don't know if a post like this was ever made or not but what do you think Roy's ethnic background? It was never specified in the anime but in the manga Roy is adopted. To me Roy looks like he could be Xingese or at least I think so. Your thoughts?

Thirty years ago, Madame Christmas was the owner of a brothel (okay, I say this and I find that, how ironic is that???). A very caring woman, she treated her girls with respect. One day, one of those girls became pregnant from one of her patrons, a very Amestrian man. The pregnancy did not go well, and she died giving birth to Roy. Madame Christmas decided to take the boy and raise him as her own, because his mother was one of her girls. Seriously.

Wow. I never knew that! He looks like he could be Xingese to me. Thanks for telling me. Where did you find this info?

Like, seriously-seriously? Really? *snort* Roy's mum was a hooker! Hahaha! (I don't know why I find that funny...)

You know, it explains a lot. A LOT.

Hmm...

Wait, so Madam Christmas runs a brothel? I thought she ran a bar (maybe I'm just an innocent).

Once again, where did all this info come from?

I'm pretty sure Sannom was just throwing a theory out there. Decent theory, though.

Toby-chan is right, I'm just throwing a theory here laugh.gif

Actually, I'm just annoyed by this kind of topic... I mean, we're not in Naruto, we don't need to speculate on such futile details! In another forum, someone actually "said" that perhaps Roy was Wrath's or Pride's son... that was so ridiculous huh.gif Just because we now know that he has been adopted doesn't mean there is a mystery behind his birth. He has the name of his surrogate mother, which means that she is her "mother".

Maybe not even Arakawa knows about Roy's parents. Remember she said she never determines the story with things that doesn't matter to the plot?
It's a cool idea, to have Chis Mustang take care of her girls like that, but there's also the possibility that he became an orphan in other ways and she took him in... Either way, there's no way to tell what exactly happen.

The only thing we do know about Roy is that he's a foster son and there's also rumors about his sisters dressing him up as a girl when he was little. lol


About the Xingese heritage, that has been speculated many times before... and it's perfectly possible!

But, also, I've been thinking lately and Arakawa never said those where the only countries known to that world. And, personally, I find Roy's phenotype much more similar to Japanese than Chinese (and to me, Chinese, Japanese and Korean people look VERY different). So maybe his heritage lies somewhere else.

Or even in Amestris! We all know it's a lot like Germany, but even in real Germany, people aren't always blond. In fact, I could very well say they have about the same amount of black/brown haired people and of blond.
Of course, there's the eye thing. But even here in Brazil, some people look at me and ask if I have a Japanese heritage, even though almost my entire family is either Spanish or Portuguese. I think I look completely 'Spanish' like, but go figure!

Amestris is a multi-racial country, that's for sure... there is black people (with some of the oldest visual cliche to have been used when drawing black people), asian people (Buccaneer), white people, and Ishbalan people.

Ah, jeez, you got me all excited...

I can't see Roy's heritage being that important to be honest, but on the other hand, my inner writer is saying that Arakawa wouldn't release the 'step-mother' information for no reason. She could have just made Madam Christmas Roy's biological mother, but she chose to specifically make her his step mother. She wouldn't release that information for kicks.

Meh, maybe I'm just over-analysing things.

As for Xingese heritage? Nah, I've always thought of him as an Amestrian man. My argument towards this is that when Ed first meets Ling he makes lots of comments about his slanty/skinny eyes (or however they were described) but he's never once said anything like that to Roy.

I always did wonder if Roy had some sort of Xingese heritage, or if he just squinted a lot!

OT:

I agree. I didn't see anyone getting mad. Stating opinions yes, but not getting mad. Heck, they didn't even get that fierce with their opinions, like I've seen some forums get.

Ed did make that comment to Ling but I always took it as he was just talking Ling not every Xingese because he didn't say anything about Mei or Ran Fan who have different eyes then him. And he's never gone "Those eyes you must be Xingese" the way he's done with an Ishbalan. Plus it's always been their accents or clothing that stick out.

^Nah, see I think it's a Xingian thing, but I guess that's just my opinion. They're supposed to be the asians of the Fullmetal world, so, it'd make sense...

Okay, we all agree that Selim looks like Roy. But, IZUMI! C'mon! Just LOOK!

Of course, that could just be Arakawa's style, but she's usually pretty good at adding variety to each of her characters, unless there's a reason not to. But I think I'm being too observant again. rolleyes.gif


I AGREE WITH YOU. It's insane! But then again, Riza and Winry look alot alike to so...yeah. Maybe its just a coincidence. wink.gif


Maybe they are distant relatives. happy.gif

Oh God! Still no where near to chapter 95's release. It's been 2 long weeks!!
