Character Description: Roy Mustang

Roy Mustang is the average kind of guy- he's power-hungry, sadistic, a major control freak, and he loves to get his way. His gloves are made from special fibers, a material named ignition cloth, so that when he snaps his fingers, with some help from his special alchemy, he can attack his opponents with a raging fire. Roy wants more than anything to become the next king, after Fuhrer King Bradley, and has many... interesting ideas of how to run the place when he does so.

Not much is known about Roy's past, but he had to serve in the war while his family stayed home. His family were killed by a bomb dropping, and Roy went into a deep melancholy, nearly killing himself. His childhood friend, Maes Hughes, convinced him that to take his own life would be foolish, and that there were still reasons for him to be alive. He promised never to leave Roy's side, and stayed with him to that day, even going into the military business along with him.

Roy seems to enjoy toying with Edward Elric more than he enjoys being power-hungry and laid-back. There have been countless occasions in which he has pushed Edward to the edge, usually resulting in huge fights between the two. Thus, they tend to avoid each other whenever possible. His relation to Alphonse is unknown; he seems to have nothing against him.

Roy also seems to have a romantic connection with Riza Hawkeye, but evidence of their relationship is not seen much in the series. He has had other ranks besides "Colonol".

Character Description: Roy Mustang

Roy Mustang comes off as a rather shallow character. His goal to become Fuhrer seems to start out as a need to change the women's military uniform to include a miniskirt. He's a state alchemist who controls the element fire using his pyrotex gloves that have an alchemic array on the back. He seems to be a source of constant annoyance for Edward Elric, he makes comments about Ed's height and seems to be a rival.

Once you delve beneath the surface though, you hit a whole different story. He participated in the Ishbal Massacre and it wrought havoc on his young mind. Horrified with his actions he became suicidal. After shooting Winry's parents, he turned the gun onto himself. Marco came by at that time, as he was trying to escape, due to what cruelties he had done during his military times, and tells Roy Mustang not to commit suicide, but instead to focus his desires to getting to a position where he doesn't have to take orders, and then runs away. Hughes knows of this and his vow is to assist Roy in getting to that position, no matter what it takes.

Character Description: Roy Mustang

Roy Mustang is also known as the Flame Alchemist. He's a heart throb to many ladies, and he knows it, although Maes Hughes is always telling him to get a wife. His main goal is to become Fuhrer and make all the girls in the military wear tiny miniskirts.

He's very sarcastic, especially around Ed, whom he constantly teases... probably because he's jealous. Roy loves dogs, primarily because "you can treat them crueley and they will not complain", "they don't ask for a raise in their paychecks", and "they are servants to humans". He does his flame alchemy by wearing a glove made of special material that makes a spark when he snaps his fingers and then uses alchemy to make the actual flame.

Character Description: Roy Mustang

At the snap of his gloved fingers, colonel Roy Mustang can whip up a shower of flame powerful enough to bring even the most naturally gifted alchemist. Of course, if his hands are wet then he can't produce flames.

He became colonel due to his achievements in the eastern Ishbalan war. He tries his hardest to live up to his rank and being a state alchemist. He is also the one that recruited Ed. The gloves are made of a fiber that has an transmute circle sewn into it.

Roy is a bit of a pervert... one of his dreams is to become fuhrer so he can make all female officers wear mini skirts.

Character Description: Roy Mustang

Roy Mustang Roy Mustang, like most characters from the 'Full Metal Alchemist' series, is a tragic character. He was one of the soldiers who was involved in the Ishballain massacre, and it causes a great conflict in him as he tries to find his way to the top. Roy Mustang wants to rise to the rank of Fuhrer, or at the least, have some say in what State Alchemists are involved in. He holds a close friendship with Maes Hughes (who is eventually killed by a homunculi).

Roy also has his...other traits. He has deep concern for the two brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric and oddly a like for puppies.
