Alphonse Elric

Alphonse Elric (アルフォンス・エルリック, Arufonsu Erurikku?), commonly called Al (アル, Aru?), is a fictional character in the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series created by Hiromu Arakawa and its respective adaptations. Alphonse is a child who lost his body during an alchemic experiment to bring his deceased mother back to life, and had his soul "attached" to a suit of armor by his brother, Edward Elric. As a result, Alphonse is almost invulnerable as long as the seal from the armor is not erased, but is unable to feel anything. In order to recover their bodies, the Elrics travel around their country, Amestris, to obtain the Philosopher's Stone, an alchemical object that would be able to restore them. In the animated adaptations from Fullmetal Alchemist, Alphonse has been voiced by Rie Kugimiya in Japanese. In the English adaptations, he is voiced by Aaron Dismuke in the first series, and by Maxey Whitehead in the second one.

Alphonse has also appeared in materials related to the manga including video games and light novels that follow his journey. His character has been well received by readers from the series, having consistently appeared in the top ten from series' popularity polls. Criticism to his character has been positive, with some commenting his design and his relation with Edward, at some points being compared with his brother.
