Damiano is a young enlisted soldier who had been transferred to the Daliha region of Ishval and into Major Roy Mustang's unit just a few days before the end of the Ishval Civil War. Despite his short deployment, however, Damiano came to respect his commanding officer for all his work keeping the men beneath him out of harm's way. Seven years after the war, Damiano remains as a soldier in the East Area of Amestris, stationed under Lieutenant General Grumman. When it becomes apparent that his old commander is planning a coup d'etat in Central City in order to rid the government of corruption, Damiano and his former squad-mates are only too happy to return to the field in order to help.
