Julia Crichton is a character and the tritagonist in the movie Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos. She was featured on the front page of the movie website, holding a rifle and wearing Edward Elric's red jacket. Julia is seen again in the third teaser trailer, wearing a belted jacket and red headband and firing a similar weapon. Julia is a descendant of Milos, and is the younger sister of Ashleigh Crichton.
Julia is a kind, strong-willed young woman who would do anything to restore the former glory of her nation, and desperately seeks great power to do so. She, however, disapproves of anything that is immoral and unethical such as sacrificing humans for the Philosopher's Stone. She dearly loves her brother Ashleigh and seeks nothing more than to be with him after the conflict, and fights him, albeit reluctantly.
Alchemy & Abilities
Julia's signature alchemy revolves on healing. She's capable albeit with some difficulty to heal small wounds. The transmutation circle used for this is imprinted on paper and is composed of two greater circles, one small circle in the center with a spiral. From the middle circle 3 ovals with a line in the middle are imprinted, one of them with 3 additional circles within and one of them with the same spiral, with the outer rings of the transmutation circle enveloping a triangle with two circles in one point.
While in the possession of the Philosopher's Stone, she can perform incredibly powerful alchemy. Similar to Atlas, she can release lightning albeit far more powerful than his as well as using water and ice. Also she, with much effort, is able to manipulate large portions of earth to stop flowing magma that even Al could not stop with walls. Her healing ability is also greatly enhanced to the point Ashleigh's ripped skin was repaired. After losing the stone and passing through the gate of truth to save the life of her brother, Julia presumably gained the ability to use alchemy without the use of transmutation circles at the end of the movie, though it is never demonstrated.
Contrary to appearances she's quite athletic and could easily jump out of a building with careful but fast acrobatic jumping in lower floors, to ensure a safe landing. She also knows how to wield and shoot a rifle and other firearms with relative proficiency, as well as use the equipment of the Black Bats to fly.
- Her seiyuu, Maaya Sakamoto, also voiced Sophie Bergmann in the video game Fullmetal Alchemist 3: The Girl Who Surpasses God.
- Because she opened the Gate of Truth to prevent her brother from dying, Julia qualifies as a potential Human Sacrifice, except for the fact that her character was created long after the series had already ended. Storyline-wise it can be posited that Roy Mustang and company, having seen plenty of suspicious things from their own military (including Peter Soyuz's occupation of Table City), kept quiet about this to protect Milos.
- She plays a potential love-interest for Alphonse, though his feelings are unrequited.
- Julia lost her leg while saving her brother, a similar situation is with Edward losing his arm to save his brother.
