Alphonse Elric is the son of Trisha and Hohenheim Elric and younger brother to Edward 'Ed' Elric. Both he and Ed have a happy childhood with their mother, until Trisha died of an unknown sickness. The next 5 years was hard for Al and his brother as they search for a way to bring their mother back from the dead. Al eventually found the plans for a Transmutation Circle that can bring back the dead called Human Transmutation, which unknown to the brothers is the most forbidden form of Alchemy. Upon using the Circle, things begin to go wrong. Edward lost his leg while Alphonse body was completely obliterated. In order to save the only family he have left, Ed made a Blood Seal to transfer Al's soul inside a suit of armor at the cost of his arm.
