In an alchemical ritual gone wrong, Edward Elric lost his arm and his leg, and his brother Alphonse became nothing but a soul in a suit of armor.

After their train ride, Edward and Alphonse return to central city to discover a State Alchemist named Shou Tucker. He and his daughter, Nina Tucker, live together happily and sadly in a mansion. One day Edward and Alphonse visit, only to see something different.
