*sigh....hangs head in shame* Alas, I too have a question...a question that needs answering, but it involves episodes beyond what adult swim has shown, so please only read the question if you have seen the whole series....or if you have general curiosity smile.gif

When was Rose pregent and with whom was that baby with? all that she would talk about was her dead boyfriend and here she is with a BABY at the end of the show...can someone explain that to me, please

~ Why does Lust (FMA-1) lose her heritage (i.e. her skin color changed) when she becomes a Homunculus? ~

Yeah why? From what we can tell at least the Homunculi characters look similar to how they looked as humans, other than Sloth (FMA-1) losing her wavy hair (unless she straightens it), so why would Lust lose her Ishbalan qualities/heritage (i.e. darker skin)?
(I'm talking about Homunculi in FMA-1 anime, btw)

Are all Homunculi meant to look pale like ghosts or something?

Good question, there are some FMA-1 Homunculi that look pale such as Lust, Sloth, Wrath and Envy if you consider his whiter skin.
However, Pride, Gluttony and Greed have fleshy colored skin.

I would think the paleness was to show they were "not" human and up until we knew their true origin, something otherworldly or supernatural.

Maybe it is because Dante made those 3 homunculi (Pride, Gluttony, & Greed) that they do not look like Ghosts, otherwise I find it to be another contradiction with the anime.

Oh wow, that is a good point I never thought about Dante making the Homunculi that looked different.

But I don't know if I can agree the homunculi's skin is paler than normal.
Besides Lust, the only homunculus we can compare to their human form of the same age is Trisha Elric, but does Sloth's/Juliet Douglas' and Trisha Elric's (in the picture below keep in mind her pic is "in the shadows" making her seem a bit darker, and if sloth was really supposed to be so pale, wouldn't she be almost pure white?) skin tones really differ that much? I don't think so, as you can see below.

Comparing to Sloth's former (human) form.. i.e. Trish Elric
Comparing to Sloth's current human form... i.e. Juliet Douglas



And therefore I still see Lust as the only one with paler ski.
(although I admit the homunculi's skin is pale, I don't think it is abnormally pale).

^ @SS Android - I was referring to when she showed her true form as Sloth in the darker dress, darker hair and from what I remember a different eye color...this below photo shows that, however, it might just be a bad shot - to me it looked like her skin color was also paler.
Sloth in True form with darker hair
When I saw that in the series, I thought it was similar with Lust - the fact that she lost her features and again looked like an otherworldly creature.

Yet, we have the Pride that looks very much human in every way - and even greed...except for his sharp teeth.
That is why I think that Homunculi created by Dante look different.

It is a good question...I know in the manga everything is black and white and I wonder if when Bones was doing the anime they ever thought about this crux down the road...
