"Literally anyone" is a bit of a stretch. It was pretty much inevitable that as long as it was allowed to communicate with people it'd eventually persuade someone, though. Which, considering how dumb the king was, was always going to happen.
Yeah, you're right "it could've been anyone" would be more accurate.
But I think it's fair to say, that Hohenheim isn't the cause of all problems but more like the only reason that the good guys won in the end. He could've stayed with his sons, but he sacrificed his happy family life. He could side with Father but he didn't. He could try to do something similiar to what Father did, but didn't. Or he could just not give a fuck.
But he took all that shit on himself to stop him, because it was him who helped Father gain that kind of power.
Also: It was him who gave the people of Xing alkahestry. Which was also a good thing.

Why even live
How do you from being so right to so fucking retarded?
>He could've stayed with his sons, but he sacrificed his happy family life.
Are you some kind of speed reader/watcher?
He left because he was one of the 3 people pre-Father appearance to realize that Amestris was fucked. He told his wife what the fuck was going and she accepted his decision, he had no choice. It's not his fault his wife died a few days later to alchemy aids, he didn't know about it until years later.
>He could try to do something similiar to what Father did, but didn't.
He did, see the transmutation circle that saved the souls of everyone in Amestris
>because it was him who helped Father gain that kind of power.
Don't understand why he wouldn't just enjoy eternal life. As edgy as it may seem, I don't think many of us would stick around trying to either live a normal life or save the world if we were in his situation. It would eventually lead to something far more horrible than the destruction of Xerxes but it's not like he knew about it at the time.
Because the reason he has eternal life is due to harboring the souls of his friends and fellow people in his body?
Because he fell in love and had a reason to not want to live forever?
>Because the reason he has eternal life is due to harboring the souls of his friends and fellow people in his body?
After a few years of that he'd either go insane or stop caring.
>Because he fell in love and had a reason to not want to live forever?
I don't see why falling in love would make someone want to die. If you can live forever, you're bound to find someone else to love.
Not even him, but I'm pretty sure he meant that Hohenheim could have pretended to be ignorant and just stayed with his happy family, or could have tried to become God like Father did. And it wasn't directly his fault that Father came to be, but he was a part of it like it or not.
>I don't see why falling in love would make someone want to die.
>live more than 300 years and for once finally find the perfect waifu and create a beautiful life/family
>wanting to be separated from that without trying to stop it
Yeah nah these anons are right >>157798232
You are some kind of degenerate.
>call out the flaws in his illogical post
Hope this triggers you more.
he probably wanted to die every day of his inmortal life.
im glad he found peace at the end, he definetelly suffered more than anyone.
