No New Posts Central Command Center

Central Military Command is the entity at the very top of Amestris' military dictatorship government which dictates absolute law and chief command of all military operations. The group known as Central Command consists of the Führer himself along with a group of Generals directly under the Führer's control.
Housed in the nation's capital, Central City, the headquarters for such a prestigious brain trust lies within a large compound at the very heart of the metropolis. Surrounded by a moat and atop an enclosed, pyramid-like structure is not only the Central Command Headquarters, but King Bradley's personal residence as well.

In the confines of this fortress, a group of high-ranking military officers have been part of a rather sinister plan for several decades, secretly plotting the destruction of Amestris in exchange for immortality by way of a gigantic Philosopher's Stone to be made out of each and every one of the citizens who trust them so.

No New Posts Central Prison

Located in Central City, adjacent to Lab 5, Central Prison is the capital's premier penal facility, housing hundreds of inmates convicted of a multitude of crimes. Under the control of the State Military, Central Prison houses court-martialed former soldiers as well as its usual cadre of felons, but is also subject to pressure from Central Command.

It has been revealed that several inmates awaiting the formal death penalty for their crimes were, in recent years, stricken from the record and instead handed over for human experimentation in the next-door Lab 5.

In the 2003 anime, several prisoners from the prison were transported to a hidden room by the Homunculus Envy in the guise of the deceased Basque Grand to be used for the Philosopher's Stone during the Laboratory 5 incident by tricking Edward into using them as ingredients. Despite the fact that the imprisoned alchemist Solf J. Kimblee had exposed this plot and that Lust used Alphonse as a hostage to force Ed to comply to their demands, thanks to further interference from Scar and Ed's exposure to the Red Water by accident, the plan failed. In the end only Kimblee escaped from the prison during the confusion and joined up with Greed and the Chimeras that broke free from their imprisonment in Laboratory 5 earlier.

No New Posts Lab Five

One of the many Alchemical Laboratories that operate within the influence and city limits of Central City, Lab 5 is located on the outskirts of town. Though Laboratory 5 was said to have shut down, the Elric Brothers' investigation reveals that the building's gate is guarded by an armed soldier at all times, the high wall surrounding it is set with razor wire and alarmed booby traps and that the interior is kept lit just enough to accommodate passage through the facilities. Additionally, Lab 5's heinous secrets are guarded by the Slicer Brothers and Barry the Chopper. The building is also rigged with explosives, so it can detonate at any time.

It is also located next to Central Prison, from which "ingredients" were taken from among the death row inmates. After Edward makes it into the heart of Lab 5 and encounters the Slicer Brothers and Lust and Envy, the building's explosives are activated, destroying all evidence of the immoral experimentation that had gone on within. It is later revealed that all the scientists involved with Laboratory 5 had disappeared mysteriously just days before its destruction and implied that the they had been used as ingredients for a Philosopher's Stone themselves. Laboratory 5 was also said to have been under the jurisdiction of Brigadier General Basque Grand, who had already been murdered by Scar by the time the Elrics discovered it.

The truth as to Lab Five's nature is later revealed to be far more sinister than even a human testing laboratory. Lab Five, along with the other four alchemical labs in the city, form the corners of a large pentagon that surrounds the city centre. Additionally, they are on the perimeter of a large circle that encompasses the pentagon, and is the inner layer of the Nationwide Transmutation Circle created by Father. In addition to being part of the Nationwide Transmutation Circle designed to condense all the souls in Amestris into a giant Philosopher's Stone, the circle within Central has another purpose. When activated, all alchemists withi

Board Description
Central City
Central is the seat of government in Amestris. The National Central Library, Central Command, the 5 National Laboratories, and Amestris' Parliament are all located in Central. Aside from its symbol as a military headquarters, Central is also a bustling metropolis and arguably Amestris' largest city, complete with nearly everything Amestrian society has to offer as well as a lasting and rarely disturbed sense of peace created by its proximity to the government's imposing presence. After the events in the eastern regions of Amestris and the Elrics' excursion to the southern region, much of the Fullmetal Alchemist story takes place in Central, as it also serves as the Homunculi's home base, the heart of which is located deep beneath Central Command Headquarters.
