Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Water Alchemy: As the “Freezing Alchemist”, McDougal can freeze as well as boil any source of water. The applications with this ability vary, ranging from creating paths to walk on, conjuring ice spikes, weapons (From his blood or otherwise), to boiling water into a cloud of steam to cover a retreat. It also goes up to freezing or boiling the water in someone’s body to kill them. However, this is not effective when used on a surface that isn’t flesh, such as Edward’s prosthetic.
