Pride (プライド, Puraido) was the first Homunculus, as well as the strongest, Father created. He was placed in the role of Selim Bradley the adopted son of Führer King Bradley


In his human form,  Pride takes the appearance of a young child. His hair is mostly in a bowl cut, with the front and right side of his hair being spiky. He likes to wear suits and sweatervests, complete with formal pants and ties. His eyes have dark brown irises that are indistuinguishable from his pupils. 

Being crafted in the exact likeness of his Father, his full-powered form looks very similar to Father.  When he uses his shadow solidifies and expands outwards from him,  forming a giant mass with tendrils expanding from the center. On the shadow there are numerous, large eyes with red irises. Beneath some of the eyes are mouths from which he can use to speak or attack from. There are also mouths located at the end of his tendrils. After being defeated by Edward Elric, his true form was revealled to be a small, thumb-sucking infant, no bigger than the palm of someone's hand.


An angry homunculus who pretends like humans are worthless creatures, and is arrogant and sometimes acts like a child.


Pride was the first homunculus to be created by his Father.
