You know, for a character named “ Lust,” this chick really doesn’t use her dangerous curves that much outside of wearing a cocktail dress on all occasions. Gluttony? He eats people. He’s a glutton. Envy? He/she assumes other’s appearances, presumably because he/she is envious of them. But Lust? She’s got killer claws and an imperviousness to headwounds, but she’s neither a raging nympho nor much of seductress and thus… not especially lustful.

I wonder if Hughes’ murder can be chalked up to him simply not have the sense to close the door on what should’ve been a private conversation. Well, he probably would’ve killed anyway, but I imagine that the phonebooth being shut would’ve at least added enough intermediate steps to Envy’s psych-out for him to get a few words in with Mustang. You know… first Envy would have to knock on the glass. Then, Hughes could pretend not to hear him/her. Then, he could deliberately take his time opening the door, acting like it was jammed, and so on. By the time they got to whole “mole giveaway” he definitely would’ve been on the line.

The high-ranking eyepatch guy did a horrible job of trying to play off any nefarious ties with the Philosopher's Stone. “You better not tell anybody or I’ll kill… just kidding! ” No no no... not smooth enough on the downplay, my friend. I suspect you, now, and so do they.
