How Kimblee joined the Tourney
Solf J. Kimblee (ゾルフ・J・キンブリー, Zorufu J Kinburī), the Crimson Lotus Alchemist (紅蓮の錬金術師, Guren no Renkinjutsushi), sometimes referred to as the Crimson Alchemist, is a recurring antagonist in the Fullmetal Alchemist series. He is a former State Alchemist and special agent working under the direct orders of Führer King Bradley. Admittedly sadistic, Kimblee was imprisoned in Central City for several years after his official involvement in the Ishval Civil War for having infamously turned his unique brand of combustion-based combat alchemy on people who were not on his government-approved kill list. Due to conspiratorial acts at the top of government, Kimblee is officially exonerated of his crimes so as to serve as the Führer's hidden left hand in the secret battles to come.
Having been released from prison, the Crimson Alchemist prepares to hunt down a man who has been misguiding Mount Penglai Qinchu for his own gain.
