Father to Edward and Alphonse Elric, Van Hohenheim has a keen knowledge of the alchemy processes possibly due to the fact that he is several centuries old. The means of his immortality differ between the manga and the first anime series. He left his children and his wife Trisha to travel around the country to leave shards from his Philosopher’s Stone.
This is really amazing! He looks just like the character! You might want to see the full version from Tokyo Pop. Thanks to Kondo-san for the cool photography skills!
