Please pardon me if the answer was blatant in some episode, but I truly have trouble figuring this out.
Wasn't Roy promoted to Brigadier General at some point near the end of the series? Why then, after the mess with the King Bradley Homunculus did he end up being a lowly corporal in the beginning of the movie?
Was he demoted? Why? Because he killed the homunculus? Because he didn't start a war or something?
Or was it self-imposed? Truly, I can see why he would want isolation from the warfare and murder and psychological guilt, therefore, retreating up there in the artics, but to give up his position and all or his subordinates? especially since rank and moving up were so important to him throughout the series!
And when his former subordinates went up to go visit him, were they trying to get him to go back to Central and lead them again? therefore suggesting that he voluntarily became a lowly outpost guard?

are you two gonna have another battle like on that other topic?
and TheVileOne, how come youre always so hell bent on trying to say the animated version of FMA is perfect? its like every time someone raises a question about it you imply that theyre dumb
I never said it was perfect. I just think its great, brilliant, and emotional. I think the manga is as well. So what's the problem?
And just a little FYI kaizenyorii, you say people raise a question about the anime? I answer the questions.
Seeing what Roy has been through and where he is in the movie, its NOT that hard to fill in the blanks. The series, while he was alive and well did leave him in a bad place. He lost his eye. And he also lost his goal of becoming Fuhrer. Combine that to all he has done over the years, what happens to him in the movie was inevitable. He no longer had the goal or purpose of becoming Fuhrer and he just became a lost soul. Sometimes this HAPPENS to people. Its perfectly IN character and appropriate to me.
Seventh_sky is saying, "I showed it to a friend and even she thought it was OOC even though she hasn't seen much of FMA." What does that have anything to do with it? Are we supposed to invest in the opinion of someone who has not even watched as much FMA and invested nearly as much time in it as we have? They obviously could've missed some huge and significant details.
