Character Description: Fuhrer King Bradley

Fuhrer King Bradley, a.k.a Pride, is the head of the military. He acts kindly to others, but has a very deceptive nature and, deep inside, he is quite cruel. He is also another Homunculus. He has a patch over his eye that hides the oroborus on it. Using his ultimate eye, he can predict anything that will happen. Pride is also one of the only Homunculus ever created with the ability to age. His creator, Dante, considers him to be her masterpiece.

There has been some debate as to whether or not King Bradley was always a homunculus, or was at one time actually a human. If Pride's "treasure," which is a skull, is his weakness, which Mustang uses to kill him, it stands to reason that the skull is that of the original King Bradley, proving King Bradley at one time was human being.

In the manga, it was recently revealed that Pride was originally a human who was transformed into a Homunculus through scientific experiments, which involved injecting a Philosopher's Stone into his body. He was the twelfth subject injected with the stone material and the only one to survive the heretofore fatal ordeal. This explains why he ages like a normal human. In the anime he has an adoptive son named Sailm, he crushes his son's windpipe when he reveals his weakness to Mustang. He is also the only Homonculi who can touch the remains of his body unlike Sloth and Lust, this was proved when he put his skull in the safe.

Bradley's real age is nearly 60 years old. In the manga, during the raid on the Devil's Nest, he told Greed he would be turning 60 this year. Also, Lust mentioned that he was made 60 years ago when talking to Greed.
