I want everything you can possibly imagine. I want money and women, power and sex, status, glory! I demand the finer things in life!
~ Greed


Greed (グリード, Gurīdo) is a Homunculus, called the "Ultimate Shield" because he can rearrange the carbon in his body to make his skin as hard as diamond, thus making him impenetrable by most weapons. As his name implies, he is a very avaricious character, who likes living in luxury, surrounded by powerful minions and beautiful women. He also has a habit of flipping people off in the manga. Despite his generally greedy nature, he is shown to care for his subordinates.
