The brothers are now travelling towards Central City and a meeting with Roy Mustang. While at a train station waiting for the next train to transfer onto, the brothers learn of an alchemist by the name of Majhal. However, there are bad rumors spreading about the town surrounding the station; the dead are coming back to life and attacking people of the village.
Intrigued by the rumors and the appearance of his name in one of their father's letters regarding human transmutation, Ed and Al head to the town to visit Majhal. By chance, they meet Majhal on their way into town.
As they sit down to talk, Majhal immediately notices that Al's soul was affixed to the suit of armor. They go on to discuss human transmutation. However, Majhal shys away from the topic saying that he and Hohenheim (Ed and Al's father) discussed it purely out of youthful indiscretion.
While eating dinner, the brothers find out that the festival is to be held to honor the dead. Interrupted by a knock on the door, Ed and Al are surprised to find Klose. She is the girl who surprised Ed and Al on their way into town. Because of her older sister's death, she has chosen to become a tom boy to escape her past.
On the day of the funeral, Klose and her father see an apparition of Karin staring at them from a distance. Klose accuses Karin of being responsible for all the strange events that have occurred recently. She begs Ed and Al, as alchemists, to avenge her sister's wrongful death for her and for the town.
From Majhal, they discover that Karin was a very beautiful woman who used to grow roses for a living. While trying to bring her rare blue roses to market in town, she fell off a cliff and died.
At a tavern in town, Klose rallies her gang o capture Karin that night. In the meantime, Ed and Al have gone to the graveyard to see if the rumors have any truth behind them. There they fall into a trap set by Klose to capture Karin. However, Karin appears and is incinerated by Majhal.
Not satisfied, Ed and Al snoop around the mansion only to be confronted by an old woman. Having seen dolls used by Majhal to create "zombies", the two are bound in chains. Because Karin was the only woman Majhal every loved and he was never able to recover from her death, he decided to create something similar to Karin to ease his pain.
Attempting to affix Klose's soul to a doll of Karin, Majhal is confronted by Ed and Al who have discovered that the old woman was Karin. She has lost her memory after the accident and returned 20 years later when her memory also returned. Unwilling to accept the truth, Majhal attacks Ed but is killed when he is impaled by his own sword. Until the end, Majhal is unwilling to accept that Karin has grown old.
In the end, Klose returns to her old self and has started to dress more feminine.
