Proper Noun: Lust is a homunculus from the anime Full Metal Alchemist. She was created when an Ishabli man attempted to resurrect his beautiful lover after her premature death. He failed, as do most other human transmutations. The Ishabli man embarked on a quest to create the Philosopher's Stone, a legendary substance which would allow him to truly resurrect his lover. However, he was killed before he could attain his goal. The homunculus that resulted from his failed attempt was obtained by Dante - a powerful female alchemist - and groomed into a beautiful and deadly assassin. (A mark of her servitude to Dante is the ouroboros tattoo on her bosom.) As a homunculus, Lust possesses a special power in addition to her imperviousness. She is capable of extending her indestructible, claw-like nails to a considerable length. This technique is called the "ultimate halberd," and serves as a mortal weapon.
After years of loyal service to the alchemist who raised her, Lust's memories began to resurface as she interacted with humans. Rejecting her past, she killed a human who fell in love with her and brought about flashbacks of her former life. Later, Scar – the brother of the man who attempted to resurrect Lust – revealed the truth about how she was born. Lust accepted her past, and came to the realization that homunculi wish to be human – despite their superiority to normal humans – because of their past. After Scar's death, she allied herself with Edward Elric in order to obtain humanity via the Philosopher's Stone and rebel against the evil Dante. Before she could reveal Dante's true identity, Lust was engaged in combat with her fellow homunculi. Wrath, a homunculus capable of using alchemy, sealed her during the battle. This weakened her enough for her opponent to kill her. Lust's true name, the name of her lover, and Scar's name were never revealed.
Lust really takes the whole homunculus thing in stride.
Wow, that Lust's got a great rack and hot bod. But watch out, she'll kick your ass!
