Kimblee Solf J.
In the manga, Kimblee is released from jail so that he can help the homunculi. He is sent to retrieve the escaped Tim Marcoh and kill Scar, though he fails at both thanks in part to the Elrics' interference. He is also instructed to start a bloody conflict reminiscent of Ishbal. As such, he tricks the leaders of Drachma into believing he is a defector, and leads them to launch a full-scale attack on the fortress of Briggs, resulting in the slaughter of the outgunned Drachma forces. ch.79 He later breaks the homunculus Pride out of the dirt dome that Hohenheim trapped him in, but after being severely injured in the ensuing fight, Kimblee is consumed by Pride's shadow.ch.93 However, Kimblee manages to maintain his sense of self instead of becoming lost among the souls within Pride's body, and briefly manifests himself to taunt the homunculus as he is defeated by Edward.
