Scenario:Barawa - A Fateful Encounter
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
A Fateful Encounter
Barawa appears in disguise. A crime syndicate is apparently hot on his trail, so the crew takes him in.
The crew drops by an island and takes care of some business.
As the crew prepares to leave, a plaintive wail rings out.
Vyrn: Huh? Do you hear that?
Vyrn: Ack! What's up with the dog?
???: Whoa! Sorry! He's mine...
???: Enough about the dog! Vyrn! It's me! Help a guy out!
Vyrn: Whoa! What's with this guy up in our business?
Lyria: Do you know him, Vyrn?
Vyrn: Nope... I'm pretty sure this is the first time I'm meeting this dude.
???: What? Oh, right... I'm in disguise!
Vyrn: What the... You're the detective dude!
Barawa: Ahaha! Sorry about that. I forget about small details like disguises.
Lyria: Hahaha... So it was a disguise!
The name of this man is Barawa. He's a self-proclaimed detective.
The crew met him some time ago when an incident occurred on the Jewel Resort Casino Liner.
With his help, the crew was able to solve a case related to the Phantom Thief, Chat Noir.
Vyrn: There he is! It's the Phantom Thief!
Barawa: You're not getting away, Phantom Thief! Today's the day that I catch you!
Sarya: Don't let your guard down!
Chat Noir: Heh heh heh. Commendable. You narrowed down the suspects well up to a point.
Chat Noir: But your endgame leaves much to be desired.
Vyrn: Ahh! I can't see anything!
Barawa: Agh! You were one step ahead of me!
Vyrn: Yeah! That did happen! Talk about a trip down memory lane!
Vyrn: So what's up now? Why'd ya need a costume to see us?
Barawa: That's what I'm trying to tell you... My life may be in danger.
Vyrn: Wait... What! What'd ya do now!
Barawa: I was on a case to find where a crime syndicate is getting its money...
Vyrn: Hm? A crime syndicate?
Barawa: Right. An evil organization has been growing more and more powerful recently.
Barawa: This bunch steals, kidnaps, and hurts whoever gets in the way. Even the local authority is having trouble catching them.
Vyrn: Whoa... Those are some bad eggs.
Barawa: That's why I've been called to investigate!
Vyrn: I see. So... did you find anything yet?
Barawa: No, nothing.
Vyrn: You got zip and your life is in danger? Yeesh! You'd think you'd at least get a crappy T-shirt...
Barawa: They caught on to the fact that I was trailing them pretty quickly and apprehended me.
Barawa: I told them I didn't have any useful information... but they just won't leave me alone.
Barawa: But now's not the time to talk about that! Please help me, (Captain)! Help a guy out!
Barawa: I'm in serious danger! They're coming for me!
Barawa: I need to get off this island quick fast! Please let me on board!
- Well, I guess I can't say no.
- I don't think so.
- You've made your bed, now lie in it.
- There'll be... conditions.
Choose: I don't think so.
Lyria: (Captain)! How could you be so cold?
Barawa: I'm screwed either way. They'd eventually come for this ship if I boarded. That's for sure...
Barawa: The duty of a captain is to put the safety of his crew first. I'll just leave while my dignity is still intact.
Vyrn: Ah, come on now...
Barawa: Would you mind if I just changed back into my disguise before I go, (Captain)?
Without waiting for (Captain)'s response, Barawa begins changing his clothes.
Barawa: Shoot! I accidentally stepped on my mask! Now I need to get these footprints off!
Barawa: Oh no! My wig's been taken by the wind! Vyrn, grab it for me, would ya?
Barawa: Aaah! This mask is stuck to the floor!
Barawa is no different than a confused dog chasing his own tail.
(Captain) feels sorry for him and so gives Barawa permission to stay on board.
Choose: You've made your bed, now lie in it.
Barawa: Gulp... I... well...
Vyrn: Hey... What's with the cold shoulder?
Vyrn: He's not just some stranger we can abandon...
Barawa: You don't understand! I don't even have a bed to lie in anymore!
Lyria: You don't have to be so mean...
Barawa: Please help, (Captain)! Please! I beg you! Help me escape this island!
Vyrn: How about we let him stay with us? At least until the next island.
Lyria: I agree with Vyrn.
(Captain) has a change of mind and decides to help a friend in need.
Choose: There'll be... conditions.
Barawa: Conditions? W-what do you have in mind?
Choose: Try figuring it out, smarty-pants!
Barawa: Hm... If you say so.
Barawa: Reading facial expressions and getting information is a fundamental detective skill.
Barawa: No clue.
Vyrn: What the... C'mon! Don't give up so easily! Your life is on the line, remember?
Barawa: But if I don't know, then I don't know, Vyrn!
Lyria: Um... You're just teasing him, right, (Captain)?
(Captain) apologizes to Barawa for making light of his situation and allows him to join them on their journey.
Choose: Oh, you know... This and that.
Barawa: What's that supposed to mean, (Captain)?
Vyrn: Now's not the time for jokes...
Barawa: Joke? Does that mean...
Barawa once helped the crew solve a case—he was their friend. There was no way (Captain) could abandon him.
(Captain) recommends that Barawa hide in a room deep within the ship.Choose: Well, I guess I can't say no.
Barawa: Are you sure? Thank you! I owe you one, (Captain)!
Vyrn: That's settled then! Let's get going! Dunno when those bad guys will come looking for us!
Thus the Grandcypher departs from the island.
Barawa: Phew... What a relief. Thanks.
Barawa: Hahaha. That means you're safe too, Buddy.
Lyria: Um... Did you always have a dog?
Barawa: This is my new partner! I met Buddy by chance while running from the crime syndicate.
Barawa: Buddy here keeps me warm on cold nights and brings me stuff to eat. This is a friend I can rely on.
Lyria: Hahaha... You've really had a rough time, haven't you...
Barawa: Without my dog always letting me know when the bad guys are nearby, I'd have already been caught.
Barawa: Honestly, I wouldn't have been able to make it here without Buddy by my side.
Barawa: I owe this little one my life. I'd like to take Buddy along with me, if that's all right.
Lyria: Hehehe. I'd be happy to have Buddy on board.
Vyrn: Hey! Where's your sidekick?
Lyria: Now that you mention it...
Barawa: Oh, you mean Sarya? I left her on another island without so much as a goodbye letter. This mission is too dangerous for her.
Barawa: And the business card I handed over to the syndicate was a fake, so Sarya won't be in any danger.
Vyrn: Look at you! You're kind of a knucklehead, but at least you do some things right!
Vyrn: Hey... You aren't mad I called you a knucklehead, right?
Barawa: No... There's just something on my mind. That disguise I was using before...
Lyria: Go on...
Barawa: I found that when I was in hiding.
Barawa: It fits perfectly, as if it were made just for me.
Vyrn: Did I hear you right? Someone was helping you?
Barawa: That's right! And this kit resembles the one used by my archenemy, the Phantom Thief Chat Noir.
Lyria: So what if the Phantom Thief—
Barawa: But why would he help me?
Thus the famous detective Barawa joins the crew.
As it were, Barawa finds himself constantly targeted by the crime syndicate wherever he travels...
It will be some time before Barawa can leave the crew without fearing for his life.
