Urey Rockbell was the father of Winry Rockbell and the son of Pinako Rockbell. He grew up, lived and worked in Resembool as a surgeon alongside his wife, Sara Rockbell. When the Ishval Civil War reached its peak, the two Doctors Rockbell left their family home in Resembool to help treat the wounded on the front lines. Though both Amestrian, the Rockbells were rather well known in the Kanda region of Ishval for treating the injured on either side of the conflict. Though many, including Doctors Marcoh and Knox, viewed them as a medical inspiration and several Ishvalan people owe their lives to the husband and wife medical team, the Amestrian military officials began to view their humanitarian effort as a nuisance and sought to have them killed.
In the manga, Solf J. Kimblee is unofficially ordered to kill them and stage their deaths as an accident so that the military would not be forced to waste resources ensuring their protection as humanitarians of their nation, but before the Red Lotus Alchemist could arrive on the scene, the Rockbells are killed by Scar, who had just awakened in their makeshift medical center and was driven into a violent rage upon learning that his brother was dead.
In the 2003 anime series, the Rockbells are officially ordered executed by Basque Grand as insurgents because their Ishvalan patients would return to the battlefield after treatment. Roy Mustang is ordered to carry out the execution against his will.
- In the 2003 anime, the Rockbells are killed before the death of Trisha Elric, but the manga marks Trisha's death as 1904 and the Rockbells' as 1908.
- In an omake, both Urey and Sara are shown to be just as much automail otaku as their daughter.
- Since Urey's mother Pinako helped Trisha Elric with the birth of her sons, it is possible that Urey and Sara were also good friends of Trisha.
- While in the Manga and the 2009 Anime, Sara and Urey are killed by Scar, in the 2003 Anime they are killed by Roy Mustang after being branded as traitors for tending to wounded Ishvalans in the Civil War.
