The minis for Fullmetal Alchemist are mini-chimerae (singular chimera). Their forms vary, being combinations of any two or more animals. Generally, they seem to be about the size of a medium dog, give or take: big enough to drag a fanbrat around, but small enough to be picked up. Some may have limited speech capability,[1] implying that they may be part human, but none have been observed to utter more than one word at a time. The ones at AFA, at least, wear collars with tags bearing their names.

They probably should not be fed Bleeprin, because they may become addicted,[2] though it is possible that All was simply scarred due to witnessing horrible things in badfic.

Canon Origin Edit

Chimerae in FMA are beasts created by fusing two or more animals together with alchemy. Any kind of alchemy involving living beings is very difficult due to the complexities of cellular biology, and most attempts at creating chimerae fail due to mismatched or missing organ systems. However, some powerful and skilled alchemists have pulled it off.

The creation of animal-animal chimerae is accepted, but the creation of animal-human chimerae is banned, along with all human transmutation. Of course, that hasn't stopped some people from trying it.

Shou Tucker, the Sewing-Life Alchemist, is credited with producing the first chimera capable of human speech. However, its only words were "kill me," and it died shortly after its creation because it refused to eat.
