Story/Backstory:

Eden was born in Resembool to Bethany and Aiden Elric. From an early age she showed a great intelligence and the traditional Elric gift with alchemy. This pleased her grandfather Ed whose children had had no interest in the art and he began teaching his granddaughter alchemy from his knee. Eden was captivated by tales about her grandfather growing up, as soon as she could read them the “Fullmetal alchemist” novels written by Sara Elric where her favorite books.  At school Eden was never that that focused on her grades she had mostly Bs but joined and was captain of the swim team. Edward’s health began to fail and when he died it shattered Eden’s world. Like her idolized grandfather she resolved to bring a loved one back. She found a few scraps of Ed’s calculations that he had not managed to destroy but Eden was no fool. She knew what normally happened if you tried human transmutation so she knew she needed to do better. Eden enrolled in Izumi Alchemy Institute for a year for a few reasons. One to learn anything more she could, two to accesses it’s library in the off chance it had anything that the restricted state libraries did not, and three because she thought it might look good when she took the next step and applied for the jr state alchemist program. After a year Eden did just that and passed becoming the fourth out of the five trial members. There she finished her theory on human transmutation and prepared to do the unthinkable.
Announcing Eden! Again!
she's still a bit rough a think especially since I feel like this most likely because I'm like this
So do you guys think you could please give her a look over and you know, critique a bit?


BTW can you tell I like emotes? I like emotes.

The actual character itself looks fine! Nice concept. She has a good bunch of character traits that all make sense, and I like her story being about distancing herself from idolising Ed. It's like the journey of almost every OC creator... XD

How did she lose her eye, or why doesn't she have one? How does it impact on her life? This isn't really explored. She would have bad depth perception and no sight on one side which doesn't fit in with being good at self-defence. I would consider just giving her two eyes unless there's some massive plot point involved in this. Or explore her disability properly.

Personally I don't like the idea of her creating a human transmutation theory. She's just a kid. Even Ed had to do tons of research to find out how to do human transmutation, and he had access to all sorts of esoteric literature. I get that this is probably a plot point because she's going to want to resurrect grand-daddy Ed, but it seems really really far-fetched.

PS. I would check your spelling and grammar! I don't know what you mean by Art: Fairly Fast (Does this mean she can draw like a demon? :P I know it doesn't but that's what it looks like.) Are you saying it's a martial art? In which case put "Martial Arts".

Thank you for the imput.

Her eye was lost to the gate. I don't think having one eye automatically means bad depth perception however. It was common enough in sailors in the past and Mustang even has it in the 03 anime. She would have less of a range of sight then most people and have to be very careful when it came to enemies approaching her there.

I'm a bit iffy about weather to state the theory because it is a spoiler, but if I did A lot would make more sence here.

let me fix spelling

So she has one eye up until the time she opens the gate?

It does automatically mean bad depth perception. It's a physical fact, which is why we have two eyes in the first place. Sailors with one eye, and Roy Mustang with one eye would also have bad depth perception. She would definitely have to adapt her fighting style a bit to compensate for the one eye. :)

If you want you could note me the theory and I could look at it for you?

Nah, she has two eyes until she opens the gate.

Huh, I have to look into that. I never noticed it when I close one eye for example but it's possible that I have bad depth preception in the first place. I belive my mother does.

sure, why not

You would notice it if you had to keep one eye shut for a long period of time and then had to throw items, do martial arts and walk along narrow bridges. ;) I assure you it is a medical fact.

I will take a look at your note as soon as I can!
