Scar is a man with a tortured past and a hatred for all state alchemists. He's was thought to be the sole survivor of the
Ishbalans, a group of people massacred by the state in the eastern rebellion, until he later encountered a entire village
of them. The Ishbalans denounce alchemy, as they believe that alchemy defies the will of God. The miliatry, on the other hand,
embraces alchemy, which was sure to cause tensions between the two groups, but that is not what caused the eventual conflict.
Scar The military's plan was to send in soldiers in order to intentially start a secret uprising so that the Ishbalans
would fight back, causing it to seem like the Ishbalans started the violence. And their plan worked, for the most part. Of
course, as if that wasn't underhanded enough, the military then changed those secret soldiers who were sent in to provoke
the uprising into chimeras. Talk about going just a tad too far!
After the Crimson Blood alchemist blew off Scar's real arm (and gave him the scar on his face), Scar's brother transfered
his own arm that had all the markings on it that he had gotten from trying to bring his girlfriend back which caused Lust
to be created. Then, Scar's brother died. Because of this tatooed arm, Scar doesn't need a transmutation circle like Ed. Scar's
real name is unknown, so he is reffered to by the X- shaped scar on his face.
