    • Source of Name: Hohenheim Elric:
      The name of Edward and Alphonse's father alludes to the famous Swiss physician and alchemist Theophrastus Philippus Aureolus Bombastus von Hohenheim, who was better known as Paracelsus.

      Von Hohenheim was born in Ensielden, Switzerland in 1493 and became a physician like his father. He studied medicine at various universities, earning a baccalaureate in medicine from the University of Vienna in 1510, and later a doctorate from the University of Ferrara.

      He is considered "The Father of Pharmacology" and also "The Father of Toxicology". He took the name Paracelsus later in life; it means "superior to Celsus", who was an early Roman physician.

      Von Hohenheim died in Salzburg, Austria on September 24, 1541.

    • "I thought she was an alien...":
      The creator of Fullmetal Alchemist, Hiromu Arakawa, often draws herself as a cow in "fighting panties". When Sciezka says she thought Ms. Douglas was an alien, Arakawa's self portrait as a cow appears with a UFO in the background.
