However, the Colonel uses a weapon of his own and fires at the Homonculus, stopping her attacks, though not harming her. Lust then slices off the Colonel's hand, leaving him badly injured. Before he is about to flee, Lust impales the Colonel to the chest, seemingly killing him, though the Colonel miraculously survives the assasgnation.

Learning of Lust's recent battle, Father summons the Seven Homonculi to his lair, instructing them for the later stages of the war, that would follow.
Interference at the Foot Clan
It is not long enough when Wrath himself becomes active in the war. Assuming his human form, as Fuehrer King Bradley, Wrath sets out to the Foot Clan, only to be encountered by Utrom Shredder's adopted daughter, Karai. The latter one rebuffs Wrath's abilities, leaving a heated fight, between the two, to start. Before Karai would defend herself, Wrath takes two swords and leaps at his opponent, striking her down, even though Karai manages to cut off Wrath's sword. A berseked Karai then counterattacks by clashing swords with the Homunculi, only for Wrath to beat her down. When Karai flees, Wrath gives a chase. Knowing that she cannot take it any longer, before Wrath would catch her, Karai cuts off her arm, so that it would distract Wrath's Ultimate Eye, allowing for her to escape.
Meanwhile, the Brotherhood incarnation of the Homunculi, Sloth, just made it out to another part of the Foot Clan's territory, where he is stambled upon the Shredder's main enforcer, Hun. Due to his extremely power and speed, Sloth manages to deflect many of Hun's attacks. When Hun tights Sltoh with a big chain, Sloth breaks himself free. However, before he would finish his enemy off, Sloth gets ambushed by the arrival of Tohru, who knocks off Sloth, before joining forces with Hun. Sloth is helpless, as the duo combine their strenght to pin the Homunculi, eventually bashing him through a ceiling. When Sloth falls, he is impaled by a massive thorn on his chest. Sloth attempts to break himself free, only to crumble into dust.
Battle for the Girl
While the rest of the Homunculi are following Father's other orders, Greed is the only Homunculus to rebel against his creator, starting by aquiring love interests from pop dancer, Holli Would. When Thrax, a former lover of Would, arrives in her lair, threatening her, Greed comes to her side, to protect her. Despite Thrax's strong attacks, that manage to pierce through his body, Greed reveals that he could regenerate the wounds. He then unleashes the "Ultimate Shield" and prepares to challenge the virus alien. He effortlesly bashes him, forcing Thrax to burn the whole building to the ground, though Greed and Holli Would manage to escape from the building.
Dealing with the Believers of God
Later, Wrath, again under the alias of King Fuerher Bradley, is called in meeting with Enrico Maxwell, the leader of the Iscariot Organization, with the priest proposing an alliance with the leader of Amestris. Wrath, however, rebuffs him, explaining his own philosophical thoughts about God and Religion, rejecting both of them entirely. Enricon then leaves the meeting at once, seeing that it is futile to persuade him into his faction. Realising that he is threatened by the Iscariot's emissaries, Wrath sends fellow Homunculus, Envy, to dispatch a member of the alliance. Envy manages to kill the conquistandor, Cortez, in the guise of an Amestrian recruit. Sadly for the Homunculus, Javert enters the scene. Not wanting any witnesses, Envy threatens Javert, pointing him with a gun. At the final moments, Javert is saved by the aid of Van Pelt, who shoots down the disguised Homunculi, with a single shot. Envy then shows it's real form to the duo, pinning them into a fight. The Homunculus manages to dodge many of Van Pelt's bullets, eventually haulting him in a place. Van Pelt, however, reveals a hidden gun and shoots Envy, distracting her long enough to reload his weapons and open fire to the monster. At that moment, Alexander Anderson arrives to assist the group. Outmached, Envy retreats, though being pursuited by the Iscariot's emissaries.
With Cortez dead, Trader Slick is freed from his imprisoment and meets with Lust, Gluttony and Envy, who manages to escape from the Iscariot. Seeing Slick as useless to their plans, the Homunculi reveal their truth to Slick, as they were using him as pawn to their own game. Now that his role has ended, Gluttony ends his life, by devouring him alive.
Later, Lust and Gluttony are wandering in an old abandoned mansion, where they are ambushed by Karai, who donated a prosthetic arm, after her assault with Wrath, and Storm Shadow, a member of the League of Assassins. Lust demands from Karai to leave at once, only for Karai to explain her state of meeting the Homunculi, forcing them to battle. Gluttonly attempts devour Storm Shadow, only for the warrior to cut off his arm and then cleans him in halve. Before Gluttony would heal his wounds, Karai knocks him away. Lust then leaps into the battle, summoning her finger claws to fight her, giving enough time for Gluttony to retaliate and bash Karai into a wall. Karai and Storm Shadow then combine their strenght and use a rope to tight Gluttonly, unable to move, only for Lust to hack through the rope, freeing him. Storm Shadow then cuts off several steam pipes, causing a burst of steam to fall upon the Homunculi, burning their faces alive. The Homunculi, however, regenerate the burned areas, before they would strike a fatal blow to them. Karai then shows to Lust her locket, a memento to her previous life as a human. An unconscious Lust falls, forcing Gluttony to take Lust into the safety, while at the same time swearing revenge at his enemies.
After Gluttony guides Lust to safety, he questions her about her previous state. Lust, however, regaining more memories about her past life, departs, with Wrath watching her all the way.
Desires, Possessions and Sins, Lying Within Greed
Eventually, Lust reunites with Gluttony. The two of them track down the renegade Homunculus, Greed. Learning of his relationship with Holli Would, Lust forces him to abandon his love interests with the woman and stick to Father's plans. She, thus, gives instructions about Greed's next goal. He then wanders in a mysterious location, stambling upon the Iscariot's efficient commander, Alexander Anderson. Before he would pick a fight, Greed's hand is hacked by Anderson's swords. The priest then continues to fight off the monster, eventually hack Greed's neck with his swords. At that time, a great resistance comes in the aid of Greed, as two of his goons leap into the fight, only to met their, when Alexander cut them in halve. A frustrated Greed then express that his goons are his possessors and now that they are dead, grows Greed more enraged. He tries to attack Alexander, only for to be stopped, when the priest fills his torso with knives. Greed then is left at the mercy of Wrath, who takes him into Father's lair.
A Cunning Trap
Since Envy's pursuit, the hunter, Van Pelt, is found by a mysterious Homunculus, who delivers him, right to one of Father's secret associates. Realising that Van Pelt's partners will search after him, the Homunculus communicates with Envy, about setting a trap, that it would lure the Iscariot's agent into it. To that end, the demon has Envy, to take the form of Wrath's alias, as King Bradley, and battle the Iscariot's agents. As it turns out, the Colonel and Javert were indeed, searching for possible tracks, encountering "Wrath", in the process. Although, the Colonel blows up the first strike, shooting the eyepatch of "Wrath", the Homunculus manages to knock him out. He then turns to Javert, to whom he impales him in the chest, with his sword. In the fray, Bradley's son, Selim, enters the fight, watching the whole fight of his father. The child then reveals to his father, a mysterious magical skull, that apparently weakens the Homunculus' current status.

However, the Colonel finds the chance to shoot several vats of flammable chemicals, incinerating the Homunculus alive, while Javert, who manages to extract the blade from his chest and melt the skull, before "Wrath"'s eyes. Before they would leave, the Iscariot's agents watch in horror, as within Selim's corpse, several shadows emerge, surrounding those two. As it turns out, Selim and the mysterious Homunculus are one person, and it's actually the first Homunculus, Pride. The agents then learn of "Wrath"'s true identity, as the Homunculus reverts to it's normal form as Envy.
New Recruit, New Adventures

Meanwhile, Pride leads the Colonel and Javert to their friend, Van Pelt. There, they meet Father's secret associate, who is also the second benefactor of the Homunculi; the alchemist, Dante. The woman sacrifices a baby, in order to see, what it is beyond the Alchemical Gate, ultimately teleporting the Colonel, Javert and Van Pelt to the Live-Action world.
A Failure Opening
Still, lost in her thoughts, Lust makes an attempt to reunite with her former family. She approaches Hiroshi Sato, her husband, in her human life, and Asami Sato, her biological daughter. Despite Lust's attempts to regret her actions as a Homunculus, Hiroshi's madness drives him out, as he conceals a gun and shoots at her. Horrified, Lust retreats.
The Grand Plan
Later, Lust, Wrath, Gluttony and Envy meet up to discuss the events, that have been unfold. Specifically, Wrath, ever loyal to Charles zi Britannia, emperor of the Holy Britannia Empire, reveals that they must lure Britannia and his forces to Ba Sing Se city, by orders of Father. In the midst of the meeting, Lust and Envy reveal that Greed escape from Father's lair, though they have the hope, that he would end up on Father's fate. Wrath then becomes assure that Greed has gone hiding to the Fire Nation's influence on the East. When Gluttony questions the others about the value of the Britannia emperor to Father, Pride reveals himself and speaks with the other Homunculi about Father's elaborate scheme. The Britannia emperor, as long as his royal family, is linked with the "Great" Evil", to which Father is originated from. Envy express hope and eager, only to be silenced by Lust, who points out that Envy should not become involed yet in any fight.

Despite, Envy's bigotry against the humans, it is forced to play it's role, as Pride states it to his fellow comrades. Pride also mentions to Envy, to take along Gluttony, as a covering spot; should Envy's position would be uncovered, much to Gluttony's excitement. Pride also admonishes Lust, about her relationship with the Sato Family, reminding her about her true loyalties, though not before being overheard by Envy, who starts to grow jealous over Lust's past.
Worse than a Pawn
Meawhile, the lost renegade of the Homunculi, Greed, happens upon Mok Swagger, who takes some of his powers, including the ability to turn into the "Ultimate Shield", in order to equip it for himself. He then explains to Greed, that he is no longer considered invisible, as his abilities slowly wear off. When Greed charges into him, Mok responds, by stunning the Homunculus on his torso, through crafted alchemical thorns. He then lets Greed on the loose, since he serves his uselfuness to the psycopath alchemist.
After his depart from Mok headquarters, Greed is found by Prince Zuko, who is tasked by his father, Ozai, to take out the Homunculus, since his presence has caused to the Fire Nation to worry about him. This time, Greed transforms once again into the "Ultimate Shield" and steps in to deal with the young prince. Zuko tries to injure the Homunculus, with his techniques, though they failed to Greed's invisibility. Greed then taunts Zuko, as he states his weakened nature to fight. Zuko then uses his firebending abilities against him, eventually, piercing through Greed's hand, destroying the shield, even though the wound itself manages to heal. Zuko then continues to fight off his foe, eventually impaling the Homunculus with a sword. Exhausted, Greed reverts into his normal form, before his about to give up.

He asks that Zuko cue into Father's plans and stop them. Zuko then delivers Greed to his father, Ozai, who in return gives him to Greed's maker, Father. There, he is held captive once more, but this time, Father plans to sacrifice him, in order to reabsorb his power. Greed has enough time to spout curses against his creator, before he is engulfed into a vat of flammable pool. From his last remains, Father takes them and consumes them for himself.
A Family Ruined
Still, lost in her thoughts, Lust is visisted by Envy, in the guise of an Amestrian soldier, on purpose not to catch any attention. The creature then vows that it would never forgive Lust for her relationship with the human beings. It then proceeds to the lethal degree, by confronting Lust's daughter, Asami Sato. Envy mocks the human, before it slaughters her, hoping that it would gap the connection between Hiroshi and Lust.
Lurking in the Shadows
On behalf of Father's orders, Envy plays the role of Father Cornello and joins officially the Iscariot, hoping to gain more information, regarding the Iscariot's ally, Charles zi Britannia.
