"I believed in you, I trusted you with my father’s research, and I applied to the military academy because I hoped to help other people. The way things turned out… it’s not what I wanted, but there’s no escaping the truth. I can never atone for the suffering I’ve caused. i have a favor to ask, Mustang. Please, burn this off… deface my back. At least… I may not ever be able to atone but at least I can destroy the secrets on my back. There can be no more flame alchemists."
