...My hope is that we find out how he became involved in Roy's office. Maybe Roy discovered him when a phone line went down or that word got around that Fuery is quite the tech genius. I give him mad props for finding Hayate,
Ha, I'm trying to think if there was/is any explanations on manga side... I sort of remember seeing something about how they came to be Mustang's subordinates somewhere... maybe on some of the side publications... ..I could be wrong, tho..
Anyway, yes, I think he's a nice fellow, and deserves a nice girlfriend!!
In manga ch. 61 (the last of the Ishbal flashback) we get a panel about Mustang's team, along with comments about each. Fuery is described as 'good with communications and kind to those of lower rank' (this my memory of a scanlation, so it could be a mistranslation).
Other than that lovely panel with all those pictures of them on, I can't think of any other info on them, or telling us why they joined Mustang. I'd like to know, especially now we've seen a good few examples in the manga of just how far they'd go to support him. (Havoc being pretty desperate, poor bloke, Falman's (possibly questionable) loyalty over Barry, and - my favourite - Breda telling Ross he'd been ordered to kill her, in front of the one man who'd likely kill him for trying (i.e. Armstrong).
In the manga, we do have that little place Mustang and Hawkeye use to spread 'misinformation' about where Scar is. Methinks Mustang could have had Fury use less-than-legitimate methods of gathering information. Totally unsubstantiated, but it would make for cute fanon.
Random fangirlish point, but do we have any idea how old Fuery is? I try to work out some scheme for the ages of Mustang and co. if only for fanfic purposes, but I come up a blank on Kain. He seems younger then the rest - too young to have been involved in Ishbal, by my reckoning - but can't be *that* young, seeing as he's a sergeant-major.
