Edward Elric, his brother Alphonse and their friends Winry Rockbell and Ling Yao want to find a treasure hidden by the Elrics' father, Hohenheim. However, Hohenheim's ex-colleague, Dante, wants the treasure for herself and kidnaps the Elrics and their friends to take the map and find it.
It can be read here. It is heavily AU.
- Actor Allusion: Wrath's real name is "Christian", which is also the surname of his English voice actor.
- Adaptation Species Change: The Homunculi are humans, except Gluttony, who is their Pirate Parrot.
- Alternate Universe Fic: Among other things, the human transmutation thing never happened, Ling is childhood friends with the Elrics and the son of Risembool's mayor rather than a prince, and the Homunculi are humans (except Gluttony).
- Artful Dodger: Wrath was this while he and Sloth were living on the streets. Sloth was apparently more of a Con Artist.
- Big Bad: Dante. Her desire to find the treasure and her kidnapping of the Elrics and their friends starts the plot and instigates the conflict.
- Big Brother Instinct: Ed naturally has this toward Alphonse.
- Big Eater: Ling, just like in canon. Gluttony too, though that should be obvious.
- Brilliant, but Lazy: Greed comments that Sloth is really good at her water based alchemy, but she's too lazy to actually apply this ability.
- Composite Character: While the fanfic is mostly based on the anime, the crew members of the Inferno have many qualities of their manga counterparts; Lust is a sadist, Envy's terrible at fighting, Pride genuinely loves his wife and Sloth hates exerting herself and even utters Manga!Sloth's catchphrase ("This is such a pain").
- Creepy Child: Wrath.
- Declaration of Protection: Not quite, but Edward becomes really protective of Winry while aboard the Inferno.
- Evil Old Folks: Dante and Pride. Unlike the source material, they're evil from the get go here.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Greed comments that Pride has a wife and son to whom he wants to send a cut of the treasure. He mocks him for it too.
- Eyepatch of Power: Pride.
- Femme Fatalons/Wolverine Claws: Lust has these, naturally. Unlike the source material, they're weapons built into her gloves.
- Master of Disguise: Envy, compensating for his inability to shapeshift.
- Opera Gloves: Lust has these, which are hiding massive, wickedly sharp claws.
- Patchwork Fic: Mostly takes inspiration from the 2003 anime, but elements from the manga and Brotherhood can be found as well (Ling's inclusion, for example).
- Pirate Parrot: Gluttony. The crew apparently found him stealing their food while camping out on an island, and Lust took a liking to him so she decided to keep him.
- Related in the Adaptation: As opposed to her just being his caretaker, Sloth and Wrath are depicted as being mother and son in the story.
- Seven Deadly Sins: Dante's crew. To drive the point home, her ship is called "The Inferno".
- Token Good Teammate: Greed.
- Wham Line: At the end of chapter three, Greed offers to help the Elrics and their friends escape.
