|01||"To Challenge the Sun"
"Taiyō ni Idomu Mono" (太陽に挑む者)
|Edward Elric and his brother Alphonse Elric arrive at the city of Lior to investigate reports of a priest named Cornello who is able to perform miracles. They are taken to a demonstration of his abilities by Rosé, an inhabitant of Lior. The brothers determine that Cornello's miracles are due to alchemy, but suspect he has the Philosopher's Stone. Rosé refuses to believe them, hoping that Kain, one of her dead friends, may be restored to life. Edward dismisses her hopes, noting that no case of "human transmutation," or creating a human using alchemy, has ever succeeded. Learning that Edward is a State Alchemist and a member of the military, Cornello orders the brothers killed. The attempt fails, but Alphonse is revealed to be a hollow armor in the process. Horrified, Rosé runs to Cornello, who attempts to kill the brothers with chimeras, beasts created by alchemy. Edward defeats them and shows Rosé that one of his arms and one of his legs have been replaced with prosthetics as a result of attempting human transmutation.|
|02||"Body of the Sanctioned"
"Kinki no Karada" (禁忌の身体)
|The brothers demand that Cornello relinquish the Philosopher's Stone, but other priests arrive, forcing the brothers to escape. To assuage Rosé's fears, Cornello reveals that he is reviving Kain, and has the Elric brothers imprisoned. He is instructed by a woman named Lust to kill those who know about the Philosopher's Stone. To terminate Rosé, he reveals that the body of Kain is actually a chimera he created. Alphonse saves her from the chimera and inserts a microphone into his Edward's room that is connected to a loudspeaker. When he activates it, it broadcasts Cornello's admission to Edward that he wants to use the inhabitants of Lior as his personal army to the entire city. When Cornello discovers the microphone, he attempts to fight Edward by animating multiple statues. Edward responds by animating a larger statue, and when Cornello refuses to give up the Philosopher's Stone, it disintegrates, revealing it to be a fake. Cornello is later eaten by Gluttony, Lust's companion, and Alphonse tells Rosé the story of how they became alchemists.|
|While searching in a library for information on the Philosopher's Stone, Edward and Alphonse reminisce on memories of their early childhood. They developed an early fascination with alchemy, and would use it to impress their mother, Trisha Elric and their friend, Winry Rockbell. One day, Trisha became bedridden due to an illness and died, leading Edward and Alphonse to research human transmutation in order to revive their mother. Their attempt at human transmutation fails, and Edward loses a leg and Alphonse loses his entire body. In order to save Alphonse, Edward sacrifices his arm to bind Alphonse's soul to a suit of armor.
