FMA OC Guidebook: Nations and Races: Canon by tansyuduri FMA OC Guidebook: Nations and Races: Canon by tansyuduri

It appears you don't have PDF support in this web browser. Download PDF

If you wish to make your own tutorial and use info from this I would like the credit due to me for the effort and time I put into making and researching this. Please! include a link back to this as a source. Like you would do for an official paper written for school or work

Here is the first of three guides dealing with the subject of nations and races. "Fanmade Nations and Races", and "Mixing Ethnicities and Nationalities" Will come next.

This is not a very long guide, since a lot of info on cannon nations and races can be found on the fma wiki, (I'll include the links here.) Mostly this guide just lists things that are not found on the wiki or things the wiki seems to be wrong on. (Also I'l like to mention that I knew what nations these where based off with the exception of xerxes BEFORE reading the wiki. I pride myself on my FMA knowlage so my vanity insists I mention that ^^; )

Amestris: [link]
Ishval/Ishbal: [link]
Xerxes: [link]
Creta: [link]
Aerugo: [link]
Drachma: [link]
Xing: [link]

If you really enjoy my guides you can "pay me back" and make me very happy by reading my fanfic here [link] and commenting

I was thinking Creta from the image, but which country(ies) could my character have originated in if she has red hair? I don't have a set eye color yet so I'll adjust that accordingly. Thanks ;3

Any "European" country is fine for red hair.

The way Xerxes was presented to me always made me associate it more with Atlantis more than any existing nation. And the name Paninya sounds kind of Hispanic to me though I could be wrong. This is all really interesting ^-^

With the disaster and all? Huh, I bet that is another thing it's based off.

I always thought it sounded somewhat indian/other east asian, But it does have a hispanic ring to it you're right.

*nodnod* There's so much thought that went into this it's no wonder it's fantastic. I know I don't put half that much speculation into the names I use in my settings. It's kind of like "does this word sound like a place to me?...yes." and then I'm done.
