Day 343/365

Ling Yao

From the anime Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Ling Yao is the 12th prince of Xing, and represents the Yao Clan. His goal is to find immortality and become the next emperor with his people's support. During his search he has many encounters with the homunculi, in particular Greed whom he will have a very interesting relationship with throughout the series.

Why I like him: I love how he can be completely silly and hilarious in one moment then turn into a dark and serious fighter. His fighting skills are quite impressive with a sword and I love how his eyes are always squinting. Most characters that have their eyes like that are awesome. He cares for his people greatly and takes good care of those that are closest to him. No one is a small person to him. Scroll over for ***SPOILER*** When he merges with Greed willingly that was just a shocking moment. But as time goes on he is able to control Greed in a way that Greed probably didn't see coming. Just amazing willpower.

Why I hate him: I can't think of anything to hate about him honestly. Just too bad-ass.

Overall: The Xing Country people were a nice addition to see in an animated Fullmetal Alchemist. I will get around to reading the manga someday.

    Slicing up Gluttony was still the highlight.

  4. Ling! <3 I absolutely adore him–I haven't really watched up to that point in Brotherhood, but I have read most of the manga and he's definitely one of my favourite characters.
