As requested by the mods, I shall start this community off. So, come hither children~

In the recent episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist, it's been revealed that the Homunculus are beings created through the experimentation of human transmutation. Also, we are introduced to the character of Wrath, a Homunculus child that Izumi suspects to harbor the soul of her son who died as an infant. As a result, Izumi too have attempted human transmutation to revive her infant (I think the child may have died a childbirth, since the baby looks very tiny). Now there's a theory that Sloth may be the soul of the human transmutation that Ed and Al have attempted, the creature that is supposed to be their "mother." Lust, too, may have been the soul of the woman that Scar have seen in his flashbacks, and that perhaps Scar's brother have taken a shot at human transmutation as well. One of the reasons that I believe this is that now we know that Lust and Sloth are the younger Homunculus/Sins, since apparently Greed is sealed by Envy a century ago. Plus, Greed have no knowledge of Lust and Sloth (if he does, then there is no need for Envy to say that "a Lust was born, too").

Thus, to start off this community, is there any rebuttals to this theory? Or any other evidence that may support this theory?

I apologize to those that have not seen up to ep. 31 but the mods are currently knocked out in their beds and I really have no idea on a general topic to discuss. There's no need to reiterate this but please stick to the rules, 'mmmkay?

Thank you so much for starting this up, Shiru~ The mods give you their gratitude. ^__^

But anyway, about the Sins... Not only did Envy tell Greed that "a Lust was born, too", he said "a new Lust was born, too" (the subber left out the "new", for some reason). So that brings up a couple of other questions: 1.) If the Lust now is the "new" Lust, then what happened to the old one? Can homunculi just die like humans? and 2.) Just how old IS Envy (and Greed) if we know he's been around for more than a hundred years and has seen various generations of Sins? And of course, there's still the question of what kind of connection the Sins have to Hohenheim Elric. (Gah, so many questions, too few answers!)

Oh, and sorry I kind of went off on a tangent from your oringal question, but you already know that I agree with your theory, so. ^^; And I can't think of anything else that would support it at the moment.

Perhaps we'll find out more if we read the manga, but then that'll spoil the anime. Plus, I don't have money. Like, seriously.

Probably the old Lust is finished, I mean if she/he got replaced, then they have a good chance that they're as good as dead. But does this mean that there's only seven homunculi at a time and that the only way a new one can be born is for one of them to die?

Ack! The bell rang, I have to go. <---*at school*
