I was reading fullmetal manga 22 at saw Denny and his family who all look similar to the Elrics. Denny looks like a more grown Ed without the atenna and shorter hair. Could it be possible that Denny and his family have Xerxes blood in him. Well There could have been traders and other xerxes people who weren't in the country when the giant transmution happened and went on and maybe had little communties like the Ishbal and interbreed through out all that time. Hoho is probably the only full-breed alive.

look at this

I suspect that many Amestrians have a little Xerxesian ancestry; like you said, there had to have been some Xerxesians (man that's awkward to spell) outside of the country when it fell, and they probably assimilated into other countries afterward, mainly Amestris, which was closest.

I didn't actually think Denny and his family in particular looked like they had much Xerxesian lineage, but it's possible.

Yah it's quite possible that others survived, unless of course as a nation they kept themselves to themselves and didnt really travle that much, but still, likely a few were outside the transmutation circle, since generations passed since then though I guess all the characteristics were bred out, Xerces characteristics must be quite dominant though since both Ed and Al have them or maybe it was just coincidence in their case, but still X amount of generations is probably enough to allmost competly eradicate them, and another point is that Father didn't recognize Ed as Hoho's son strait away untill Ed told him so, but Ed has the Xercean hair and eyes, was Father just been a bit dopey or did he think that Xercesian descendents walked around all the time XD

It's funny you should mention Denny. When I first saw those images, they were in Japanese so I had no clue what they were saying. I had some deluded idea he was future Ed. I did figure it was Denny quickly since it made no sense that it would be Ed.

I think he could have Xerxean blood in him, but he could also pass as a relative of Winry as well imo since his one sister resembles her.

Oh wow. I thought the same.. about the possibility of Denny having a Xerxesian relation. That truly would be neat if he were to be connected to them!

I actually thought Hawkeye looked like she might have some Xerxesian ancestry... the eye and facial shapes are somewhat similar. Her father, even more so. Considering he was an accomplished alchemist, it would be an interesting coincidence...

I thought of her as well.. only problem with her being that her eyes are more of a Amber/Brown color than the Gold of the Xerxesians..

You're probably talking about a relative handful of survivors from over 300 years ago, though. I would suspect that most xerxian features have been diluted into the population, unless they're ridiculously dominant.

Though the possibility exists that after the destruction of their homeland, survivors banded in very small communities, but even that woud get diluted after a while.

Well, Denny's are blue?green? and he's been nominated, too. Besides, we haven't seen any golden-eyed Amestrians really (besides the Elric brothers) so the trait may have faded out.

True. Perhaps it runs in their blood line, but other traits of races have intermingled with the Xerxian survivors, and the golden eye color trait has become more so recessive? Makes sense.. so there could be many partial Xerxian surviving bloodlines, but rare pure bloodlines, if any at all that is.
