Definately Scandinavian. The long, golden locks say it all. Plus, their father is all about the Thule Society.

[spoiler]When he went through the gate he ended up in London then I assume took the train to Germany since he had been there a while when they showed Ed and Hoinheim there. Also, when Envy asked where the gate went Ed told him London.[/spoiler]

I think they are Palestinian. The Ishbal architecture falls pretty close to arabic architecture. Thier method of bowing down is just like how muslims would bow down. Thier belief in one God which could be said for the Jews as well. But Muslims/ Ishbals believe that Black Magic is done with the help of the devil. When the Ishbals mentioned this in the cartoon I was pretty sure these people are meant to parallel palestinians/muslism.

They're German. Elric means king of elves or fairies in german. How do I know? I'm a freak and I typed in Ed's last name in this "What does your last name mean" site.

agree:) nice observation--i sensed something palestinian but just could not have any evidence--just feel that in the end when all of the ishbals are allocated a new place to live really parallels the news about the sovereignity of palestians~~

my feeling is that this comes from japanese characteristics--they are worried about their height all the time and this will let the audience more idnetified with the characters~~ anyway, seldom see a white character in english animation complaining about the stature that MUCH!

Ed's extreme shortness comes from being king of the fairies, obviously! XD

Frankly, I figure their race is Amestrian. The template for Amestris is obviously a mixture of various European cultures; however, FMA is a relatively international show, so there are characters of varied and mixed descents. I'd be willing to believe that Izumi and Mustang have some Xing ancestry back there somewhere, and we've been told that the citizens of Lior (living in a border area as they do) are the result of Amestrian and Ishbalite intermingling.

Hohenheim = German =\ (i mean the real guy that studied Homunculus decades ago) so the Elrics should be German too...
