Scenario:Cordelia - Holy Knight or Fair Maiden
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
Holy Knight or Fair Maiden?
Cordelia reunites with Bridgette, a former comrade-in-arms, and reprimands her for leaving the order unannounced. Bridgette, on the other hand, is simply overjoyed to see Cordelia again and takes her to a bookstore.
Cordelia: I've found you at last...
Cordelia: What a twist of fate this is. To think that you'd be the first...
Cordelia Garnet of the Holy Knights' Rangers finally finds one of the missing people.
To top it all off, Cordelia is well-acquainted with this one.
Bridgette: Hiya, my dearest Cordelia! It's been so long! The last time I saw you, we were still squires!
Bridgette is surprisingly casual despite Cordelia's solemn expression.
Cordelia sighs, defeated by Bridgette's lightheartedness.
Cordelia: Um, Bridgette... I'd prefer you refrain from calling me your dearest.
Cordelia: As contemporaries in the order, I'd hate to sentence you. But I will do what I must to accomplish my mission. Forgive me...
Cordelia: Former Holy Knight Bridgette, your fellow holy knights shall now pass the divine judgement of inquisition upon you!
Cordelia: Swear to the azure sword that you will speak no falsehoods as you state your justice!
Bridgette answers with complete confidence.
Bridgette: Sure! Justice to me is, without a doubt, doing ten good deeds a day!
Awestruck at such a childish answer, Cordelia sighs even deeper.
Cordelia: Haaah... Bridgette, please don't disappoint me.
Cordelia: I thought you might have matured a bit, but you haven't changed at all.
Cordelia: Are you listening, Bridgette? Hey! Where do you think you're going? This inquisition is not over yet!
For whatever reason Bridgette ignores Cordelia's questioning and saunters away.
She then goes around helping people in need, quickly building up to her quota of ten good deeds a day.
Cordelia: An old man lugging around heavy equipment... A child scared by a stray dog... A shopkeeper cowering in fear of angry customers...
Cordelia: What's next, Bridgette? Did you just bring out a ladder from one of the houses?
Cordelia: Ahahaha... You'd go so far as to prune the trees by the roadside?
Cordelia: With how pushy you're going about it, you're probably causing more harm than good. How can you possibly call these good deeds?
Just then Cordelia notices something unusual.
Cordelia: No, wait... That's not it.
Old Woman: Oh my, hah hah. It's just like Bridgette to rush into things headfirst.
Child: Ahahaha... Bridgette might be even clumsier than me!
Cordelia: Their faces tell everything... No one thinks of Bridgette as a bother. But rather...
Bridgette: Hey, what're you doing over there, Cordelia? You're up next!
Bridgette then proceeds to tug at Cordelia's sleeves.
Cordelia: Huh? What are you talking about? Don't forget your inquisition hasn't ended yet.
Bridgette: Let's go. Go, go, go!
Cordelia: Cut that out, Bridgette. I'm not going anywhere.
Village Girl: Aah! What a handsome looking man! Please, stay a moment longer!
Village Lady: Ehehe... I don't think I've seen you around here. I take it you're a traveler? How would you like a tour of the town?
Bridgette: See? You're amazing, Cordelia! The town loves you already!
Cordelia: Not really. I only use my charm because it's part of the mission. Otherwise it's just a bother.
Bridgette: Hmm, you really think so? Ooh, here we are at the store! In we go!
Cordelia: Sigh, you never listen, do you?
Cordelia: This is...
Bridgette: Teehee, this place is filled to the brim with romance books. After I found it I knew I should show you.
Cordelia: Wait! How do you know about that?
Bridgette: Hm, am I mistaken? Weren't you always taken with epic poems describing the thrilling romantic episodes of—
Cordelia: Stop talking! Just stop!
Bridgette: C'mon, we joined the order in the same year! It's only natural that I'd know at least that much about you!
Cordelia: How... How did it come to this?
Bridgette: Oh, I see. You like them all so much you have trouble choosing? No worries! I'll help you pick out a few.
Bridgette: Hehe, I know just your type, Cordelia!
Cordelia: B-Bridgette! That's going too far!
Bridgette: Aw, no need to be bashful. I'm only here to help! Ten good deeds a day, here I come!
As their banter continues, the door of the shop suddenly swings open.
Ruffian: It's you, ain't it? The one that's been makin' moves on mah girl.
Village Girl: Huh? Stop it! He didn't do anything like that! All he did was talk to me!
Ruffian: Argh, shut up already! Look at ya reading poetry like the lil' sissy ya are!
Cordelia: Heh, you see how it is, Bridgette? My good looks invite disaster too.
Holy Knight or Fair Maiden?: Scene 2
Bridgette leads Cordelia from place to place, culminating in a visit to a beautiful flower garden. Although Cordelia has never told anyone about her love of flowers, Bridgette sees right through her.
After fighting off the hot-tempered thug and clearing everything up, Bridgette goes back to dragging Cordelia around.
Cordelia: What is it now, Bridgette? Where do you plan on taking me next?
Bridgette: Everywhere! Let's go hiking next!
Cordelia: (Geez, you're as pushy as I remember...)
The two go on hiking through the woods, all while Cordelia reminisces about the past.
Cordelia: (Why, this feels awfully familiar...)
Cordelia: (Ah yes... Back in those days, when we were still squires and hadn't been anointed to the order yet...)
I was sparring with Bridgette.
She was a complete novice and didn't stand a fighting chance; yet she kept coming at me.
Cordelia: Bridgette, why don't you give up already? You'll never beat me.
Bridgette: Never say never! I'll get you one day!
Cordelia: Why do you try so hard? The height disadvantage alone is a huge handicap for you. You'd be better off polishing your other talents.
Bridgette: It doesn't matter how far behind I am now. I'll catch up to you eventually! Just you watch!
Bridgette: Because if I don't, you'll always be stuck trying to save yourself.
Bridgette: Cordelia, I want to always be a friend you view as your equal.
Bridgette: I'll give it my all! I'll get back up everytime and keep moving forward!
Bridgette: When you're in trouble one day, I'll be there to help you. That's a promise, Cordelia.
Bridgette: Look, Cordelia! We're here!
The two come out of the woods and into a beautiful field of flowers.
Cordelia: From poems to flower gardens...
Bridgette: You liked flowers too, right, Cordelia? I promised to show you a flower garden one day...
Cordelia: You see right through me, Bridgette. You might make a better ranger than me.
Bridgette: No, Cordelia. That's not true.
Bridgette: You're the best ranger there is. I'm sure of it.
Bridgette: I only have one request of you. Please stop pushing yourself so hard. If that's too much to ask, then at the very least...
Bridgette: I want you to be the real you when it's just the two of us!
Cordelia: The real me?
Cordelia is at first taken aback by such a forthright request but immediately understands Bridgette's intent.
Cordelia: Sigh, you're too much for me.
A gentle breeze caresses their skin.
Unfortunately, the ominous sound of violently flapping wings approaches, ruining the picturesque moment.
Cordelia: Fall back, Bridgette! I'll take it from here!
Bridgette: Absolutely not! I'll show you what I can do!
Cordelia: Haha, I almost forgot... Let us fight together then, my dearest Bridgette!
Holy Knight or Fair Maiden?: Scene 3
Cordelia's missions as a ranger make it very easy for her to lose herself, but Bridgette helps her remember who she is. Perhaps as thanks or as a way of covering her embarrassment, Cordelia sweeps Bridgette up like a princess and pokes fun at her.
Village Girl: Ooh, talk about a gorgeous knight in shining armor! Hey, Prince Charming, why don't you stop by for a cup of tea?
Village Lady: Praise the skies! That hunk's coming this way! Howdy, how'd you like some of these freshly-picked vegetables from my garden?
Cordelia is as popular as ever with the ladies. Curiously enough, Bridgette rolls her eyes and quips in response.
Bridgette: Humph. Prince Charming? Hunk? They really don't know you, do they?
Bridgette: Truth is, there doesn't exist a girl lovelier than you, Cordelia!
Cordelia flashes Bridgette a mischievous grin.
Cordelia: You really think so, huh?
Cordelia suddenly sweeps her up like a princess.
Bridgette: Aagh, Cordelia! What do you think you're doing?
Cordelia: Haha, just like how you know me so well, I noticed your feelings for me too.
Cordelia: Tell me if I'm wrong, Bridgette.
Cordelia gives her an intense, soul-piercing gaze.
Bridgette's face turns deep red as she flutters her hands and feet.
Bridgette: W-w-what are you talking about! T-that's not—
Cordelia: Ahahaha, I'm only kidding.
Cordelia: I wasn't about to hear you say all that without getting a little payback of my own.
Bridgette: Cordelia, you jerk!
Cordelia chuckles at an irate Bridgette. It's been too long since Cordelia's been able to be her true self and smile from the bottom of her heart.
Cordelia: (You always said you wanted to be of help to me someday, but I'd say you've already been helping me for a long time...)
Cordelia: (So this is what you call justice... Haha, how befitting of you. You're a beautiful person, Bridgette.)
Bridgette: Hm, did you say something?
Cordelia: No, it's nothing.
Two contemporaries of the Order of Holy Knights forge deep everlasting bonds transcending personality and belief.
A secret unknown to the other holy knights, it is one they will keep for the rest of their lives.
