Name:Alphonse Elric

Name // Alphonse Elric
Age // 23 (physically 17)
D.O.B // April 1st, 1900
Gender // Male
Occupation // Alchemist
Alphonse, even in passing, appears polite, mature and focused. He's adept at handling difficult situations, both emotional and eventful, and often becomes an anchor for those around him. Al is kindhearted, sweet, and often goes out of his way to help others, especially children and animals. It's nowhere near uncommon for him to find a kitten shivering in the rain and without a second thought, bring it home. Despite his gentleness and sentimentality there is nothing meek about Alphonse Elric. He is no less stubborn or determined than his brother, he just goes about it differently. He can just as easily deliver a reasoned explanation as a poignant silence -- something about his insistent nature often gets him what he wants, though he sometimes resorts to motherly chiding when he's around those he knows and loves.

An exceptionally bright young man, Al has a good memory, a quick wit, and a decisive mind that can quickly assess details and apply solutions. He is extremely adaptable, though he lacks the "dynamic genius" quality he is quick to catch on to new ideas and use them.

By and large a happy person, he is still subject to brooding when left alone in his thoughts, but he finds it hard to stay depressed when busy with one thing or another.

Though he is generally good about maintaining a level head he can be easily pushed into losing his cool when those he loves are threatened. His anger is a slow burn rather than a short fuse.

In-Game Changes

Al's innocence has been compromised a bit in several years of development. In response to experience he's quite a bit more guarded and cynical, and it takes less for his not-so-nice side to come out. He's developed a slightly black sense of humor and is quicker to get more "adult" implications than before, and isn't always polite with certain people that get under his skin. Alphonse has been called on to be a community leader as well as a soldier, and to a certain extent, a commander. When under stress he can revert to a state of professional calm, capable of giving orders with the confidence of a seasoned adult. Intrigue and layers of agenda have made him not entirely forthcoming with everything, and he's adapted to keep everyone at a certain distance, sharing with them only parts of his life, to minimize their concern for him.

Al's developed a deep fear of abandonment and has frequent nightmares unless he isn't alone when he falls asleep -- aside from when he's battling insomnia.

He's still the same old sweet, warm-hearted, gentle Al, but he'll react to certain things differently than before.

→ Extremely faint scarring on his neck, shoulder and inner arms (claw and bite marks)
→ Small round scar above left eyebrow (bullet)
→ Scarred knuckles (glass and a bite)
→ Gouge scar on the outside of his left calf (crossbow bolt)
→ Spiderwebbing of faint scars from his right wrist to his elbow.
→ A mostly healed scar on the back of one shoulder, three kanji characters. Possibly a name.

Appearance Note: Though Al is physically around seventeen, he has twenty-three years' worth of memories in total. He keeps his long hair in a braid or ponytail. He almost always dresses in conservative layers, and rarely wears anything tight or form-fitting. Jeans, hiking books and sweaters are most common. Almost all outfits cover his neck. Though he doesn't generally wear jewelry, he usually has a very small blue cuff on his left ear.
