Kimblee Solf J.

Japanese name: ゾルフ・J・キンブリー
Solf J. Kimblee — the "Red Lotus Alchemist" or "Crimson Alchemist" — is a psychopath who delights in what he considers "artful destruction". He earned fame during the Ishbalan Civil War for his ruthless commitment to the Ishbalan Extermination, killing thousands of people without remorse through his unique brand of alchemy. Using transmutation circles tattooed to the palms of his hands, Kimblee can make a bomb from anything he comes into contact with. Because of his effectiveness in wiping out the Ishbalans, Kimblee was given an imperfect Philosopher's Stone to increase his alchemical abilities. With it, he killed Scar's family and gave the Ishbalan warrior priest his characteristic 'X'-shaped scar. After the war was over, Kimblee, wishing to keep the stone for himself, killed the superior officers that knew he had it so as to keep it a secret, and was then sent to jail for his crimes.

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.

In the first anime, Kimblee escapes from jail and joins Greed, though only so that he can betray him and re-enlist in the military.ep.33 He later infiltrates the city of Lior to instigate an uprising against the military. Kimblee encounters Scar while there, and, after a failed effort to blow him up, he is killed by the Ishbalan, though not before he turns Alphonse into a bomb, which prompts Scar to turn the boy into the Philosopher's Stone.ep.42 Kimblee is voiced by Yuji Ueda in the first Japanese series, and by Eric Vale in the English adaptation.ep.22ep.22 His voice in the new series is provided by Hiroyuki Yoshino.
