Scenario:Albert - The Lightning Knight
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
The Lightning Knight
Caught off guard by monsters, our heroes fell from a cliff, but were rescued by Albert, who suddenly appeared. Even though Albert was thanked by the party, as soon as he noticed Lyria’s power, he took on a stern expression, and brandished his blade. After hearing Lyria’s explanation, Albert realized that he had misunderstood her. He himself explained that he was looking for a friend who had sold his soul a primal beast. Lyria proposed that they all searched together. Albert was Somewhat taken aback, but assented and joined the party.
The Land of the Heavenly Sword, where precipitous cliffs ran along the mountain paths. The party had heard rumors of monsters that attack travelers who try to make it through that dangerous territory.
After undertaking a mission to hunt monsters from the people of a village at the base of a mountain, the party climbed a rugged mountain path.
Vyrn: It is an extremely precipitous path... If monsters also show up on it, perhaps it’s best to just not go through it...
Lyria: There is a shortcut going across these mountains into the next country... Right, (Captain)?
(Captain) nodded in agreement to Lyria’s words. (Captain) was worried about the huffing and puffing Lyria.
At that instant, (Captain) reached out to Lyria.
Suddenly the shadow of a monster fell in the party’s path.
(Captain) made his way up from the precipice from which had fallen when protecting Lyria from the monster’s sudden attack.
It had been a close call for our heroes.
Vyrn: Whaaa?! You okay?!
The monsters that (Captain) had repelled in the sky attacked once again.
Lyria: Look out!
Lightning flashed as Lyria cried out.
Lyria turned away as the thunder roared. As Lyria regained her composure, the monsters flew off and disappeared without a trace.
???: Are you hurt?
The man who said that pulled (Captain) up by the hand.
Lyria: Thank you for saving me!
Vyrn: Wh-what the?! This guy appeared as sudden as a flash of lightning...
Albert: My name is Albert.
Albert: What are children doing in a place like this?
Vyrn: We are here to take out the leader of the monsters that attacks people who travel through these mountains!
Albert: What? Just you and your friends alone?
Lyria: Yes! We are Skyfarers!
Vyrn: Yeah! Monster hunting is our specialty!
Albert: Yes, but weren’t you in great danger just a moment ago?
Vyrn: What?! We were merely caught off guard, that’s all!
Albert: So you hunt monsters? It’s either kill or be killed... And of course there are surprise attacks.
Albert: I think you guys are too weak for this and should just head home.
Lyria: But the villagers are in trouble! We can’t just abandon them!
(Captain) returned Albert’s gaze intensely.
Albert: Good grief... What can I say in response to being stared at like that?
Albert: Fine, fine... I’m in kind of a hurry, but I can’t just leave you like this... I will help you hunt monsters.
Vyrn: Are you sure?! It would be a great help if lightning boy came along!
Albert: My name is not “lighting boy”. It’s Albert!
Lyria: Yes! Welcome aboard! Albert!
The party advanced along the mountain path with the help of Albert.
Vyrn expressed admiration for how Albert was apparently totally nonchalant about any monsters that appeared on the path.
Vyrn: You are amazingly brave, Albert!
Albert: It’s not a big deal.
Vyrn: No, I am truly impressed!
Albert: Thank you. I’ll take that as a compliment.
Vyrn: And your humble attitude is also impressive! Right? Don’t you agree, Lyria?
Lyria: Eh... Y-yes! S-sure...
Lyria was unable to hide the ambivalence in her statement. She then carelessly stumbled over a rock.
Albert: Be careful...
Before (Captain) could reach out to her, Albert gently caught Lyria In his arms.
Lyria: Ah, thank you...
(Captain) could feel his heart pounding as he witnessed this.
Vyrn: What's wrong, Lyria? Is mountain climbing too much for your feet?
Lyria: N-no! I’m all right! Right, (Captain)? Let's go!
Albert: Wait, Lyria...
Lyria: Wha?! W-What is it?!
Master of the Heavenly Sword: Grrrr!
Albert: Lyria, get back! This one isn’t the same as the ones before!
Lyria: Y- Yes!
Albert: (Captain)... This monster is for sure the master of this mountain!
Lyria: (Captain)! Albert! I will back you up!
After saying that, Lyria unleashed the power of primal beasts.
Albert: What?! The primal beasts...
Vyrn: Hey! Albert! Watch it! Monsters are coming!
Albert: ... Yeah.
With the help of Albert, the party defeated the Master of the Heavenly Sword.
Suddenly, Albert turned his blade toward Lyria with a grim look on his face.
Vyrn: Hey hey... Albert. What happened?
Albert: Lyria... What is this power you wield?
Suddenly, the surrounding still dark, and the sky was filled with black clouds.
Thunder began roaring as lightning flashed through the clouds.
Albert: Did you somewhere, somehow obtain the power of a primal crystal?
Lyria: Wha?! I... Uh...
Albert: You sold your soul to a primal crystal... Are you a monster?
Vyrn: What the hell?! Just shut up and listen and we’ll explain...
(Captain) sensed the change in Albert. (Captain) slowly backed away from him.
Lyria: (Captain)! Vyrn! P-Please wait!
Albert: It’s no good. There is no way you could defeat me. Shut up and then answer my question.
Albert remained cold and attached as he continued to point his blade at Lyria.
While staring fixedly at Albert, Lyria replied with resolve.
Lyria: I’m sorry. What is my power? Why can I use the power of primal beasts?
Lyria: I don’t really know, either. However, there is one thing I understand clearly.
Lyria: It’s that I want to use this power to help someone! I can’t explain it very well, but...
Lyria: I hope I can somehow use this power to help people in trouble and somehow make this world a little bit better!
Albert listen quietly to Lyria's statement without saying a word. Apparently moved by her words, he quietly sheathed his sword.
The dark clouds above then disappeared.
Albert: Sorry for frightening you. You seem to be telling the truth, Lyria.
Vyrn: YOU MORON! Of course! What did you think Lyria was?
Albert: Please forgive me for what I have done.
Albert bowed deeply and apologized for his actions. He began to speak of the goals of his own journey.
Albert: I actually was originally the Captain of an Order in my fatherland.
Albert: However, one day my friends in that Order Were engulfed by the power of the “Star without Mercy” and underwent a strange transformation.
Lyria: “Star without Mercy”...?
Albert: Yes... There seems to be a primal beast that lives parasitically in humans sealed within the primal crystal Crystal fragment known as the “Star Without Mercy”.
Albert: I have been pursuing my friend it has been possessed by that primal beast’s power...
Vyrn: So that’s why you had such a reaction to Lyria’s ability to use the power of primal beasts...
Lyria: So does it seem like you’re going to be able to find your friends, Albert?
Albert: I am looking for that kind of monster, but so far have found no trace of it...
Lyria: In that case! I will help you find your friend!
Lyria: I actually have the ability to sense the power of primal beasts...
Lyria: Thus I think it would be more efficient for me to help you find your friend than for you to do so all alone?
Albert: R-Really?! Are you saying that you would welcome me into your fellowship even though I pointed my sword at you?
Vyrn: That’s what Lyria is saying. What do you think, (Captain)?
Choose: Well, if Lyria says so...
Albert: Thank you, (Captain). You are very kindhearted.
Choose: I'm a little hesitant...
Albert: That’s... That’s right. Maybe I should just continue with my journey alone after all...
Lyria: Wh-what’s wrong? Saying something nasty like that... It’s not like you, (Captain).
Vyrn: Hmph... There was that thing before, and...
Vyrn: Aren’t you worried about Lyria, (Captain)?
Lyria: That’s right! (Captain)...
(Captain) nods deeply in response to what Lyria was saying.
Lyria: But but... I thought you understood, Albert!
Lyria: I'm fine! Right, (Captain)?
Lyria frantically explained what was going on with (Captain).Continue 1
His suspicions alleviated, Albert joined our heroes on their journey.
Vyrn: Well, think about it. Albert did help us get rid of those monsters.
Lyria: Exactly! I think Albert is a wonderful person!
Albert: Haha... Me, a “wonderful” person...
Vyrn: Hmm? What's wrong?
Albert: Oh, it’s nothing. I was just talking to myself.
Albert: If I join your fellowship, I will stake my life on protecting you.
Albert: I'm looking forward to our journey together, (Captain).
Thus Albert became a member of the party.
Would he eventually find the friend he was looking for?
