Sloth (スロウス, Surōsu) is the embodiment of some of Father's sloth in the manga and the 2009 anime. He is not to be confused with Sloth from the 2003 anime, who is a very different character.
Sloth is the largest Homunculus (with the exception of Envy's true form), having the appearance of a large, muscular man. He wears black pants and shoes, and sports black straps across his chest. He has black hair that runs down his head, sharp teeth, and blank, white eyes. He is also commonly seen with chains around his wrists.
His personality isn't explored much. However, as shown through his few appearances, he is often shown complaining about how much work he has to do. He claims that even simple things such as thinking are a pain and smiles when he dies, stating living itself was a pain. However, he diligently follows the orders given to him. In addition, when frustrated or pushed too far he will become annoyed and resort to full strength and become dedicated in fulfilling his task, as shown by his determination to kill the female general. He is rather simple-minded and doesn't seem to be able to think about difficult or complex strategies. This, along with his clumsiness, means he is not good at stealth or surprise attacks. Unlike other homunculi, aside from Gluttony, he doesn't seem to view humans as inferior, or at least never vocalizes it. Likewise, while fighting or killing he doesn't seem to feel glee or joy, only the drive to finish his mission.
