Scenario:Elmott - The Midnight Prowler
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
The Midnight Prowler
As our heroes went to put out a fire, they met a mysterious guy named Elmott. The next day, they happened to witness Elmott defeating the true culprit behind the fires, but the villagers in turn suspected them of the crime. Elmott told them he’d buy them some time to escape, but Lyria convinced him to come along.
Late one night, (Captain) and company were on their way back to a certain village after completing a monster extermination request.
Just as they were about to return to the airship, a villager came running out of the forest, white as a sheet.
Villager: Aaaahhh!!! F-FIRE!!! The forest is on fire!!!
Vyrn: Say what?! N-Now that you mention it, there’s a kind of... burning smell...
Lyria: Oh! Look! There’s smoke rising from the forest!
Vyrn: Oh crap...! This could be trouble... Let’s help put out the fire!
(Captain) and company rushed into the fire-swept forest.
As our heroes searched for the cause of the fire, a suspicious young man appeared.
???: What the...? What are you all doin’ here? Run along to bed now, kiddies.
Vyrn: Excuse you?! Don’t judge us by our looks! I’ll have you know we’re perfectly capable skyfarers!
???: Like I care, kid. Listen, you won’t grow up big and strong if you keep walkin’ around at this time of night, m'kay?
???: Hang on... Just one thing... You there, what’s your name?
Vyrn: Hm? This is (Captain)! The captain of our order!
???: Aha...! I see... Your scent is like mine... I’ll remember that face, at least.
???: Now then, run along, little kiddies. It’s not safe in these parts... Fires tend to pop up... It’s quite a sight...
With that, the young man disappeared into the darkness.
In the end, the fire was put out before it got serious, and apparently the cause of the fire had vanished, but...
Villager 1: Hey, have you heard? There was another fire scare in the forest yesterday...
Villager 2: Yeah. Four days in a row, huh? Rumor has it there’s an arsonist in town. I bet there’ll be another tonight...
Vyrn: Hmmm... Say, do you think it could be that suspicious dude from yesterday...?
Lyria: Hmm... I’m not sure. He didn’t seem like such a bad person to me...
Lyria: Oh!Th-this smell...!
Vyrn: Look! There’s smoke coming from the forest again! C’mon! We’d better hurry, (Captain)!
???: Listen, I don’t hate your fires, but this is going a little far for a prank...
Fire Monster: GRRRR...
???: There are a ton of people here who’d prefer it if the forest WASN’T on fire. So, yeah, I’m gonna need you to stop.
???: Relax... It won’t hurt a bit. MY flames can turn any monster to ash in an instant...!!!
The moment he unleashed the flames, the monster vanished, and silence fell over the forest...
Vyrn: That was incredible... D-Did he really just do that?!
???: Hrrrm? You’re the people from yesterday...
???: What are you doing here? Didn’t I tell you not to walk around out here? It’s unsafe, remember?
Lyria: E-Excuse me! Was that monster the culprit behind all the fires...?
???: Maybe. So what? What do you care?
Lyria: Then that means... You aren’t the arsonist... In fact, you’re the hero of this story...
Elmott: Gahaha! Like I care about that! I, the great Elmott, simply burn things as I please... That’s all there is to it.
Elmott: That monster earlier was simply trespassing on my turf... and I didn’t appreciate it, that’s all.
Elmott: Besides, the villagers all have it out for me anyway...
Villager: Hey! Over there! Those people are suspicious... They did it, didn’t they?!
Elmott: Tch... Great, here comes trouble...
Elmott: Hey! Kids! Get away from the village before ya get involved in this mess.
Elmott: You’re skyfarers, right? I’ll buy ya some time, so take your ship and get out of here... Hurry!
Lyria: Huh? But... what about you, Elmott...?
Elmott: Hrrrm? This misunderstanding ain’t likely to get cleared up. I’ll have to leave the village... That is, assuming I can.
Lyria: In that case... Why don’t you just come with us?!
Elmott: What?! Don’t be ridiculous...
Lyria: But... At this rate, you’ll be charged with a crime you didn’t commit!
Elmott: And I should go with you because...?
Choose: Can you really escape on your own?
Elmott: Hrrrm? Don’t underestimate me, kid... As if anyone from the village could give me trouble...
Vyrn: Whoa! Th-They’re coming from over there, too! They’ve nearly got us surrounded!
Choose: We can’t just abandon you here
Elmott: Like I care... Worry about me all you like, kid, but I’m not goin’ down.
Lyria: B-but...! I refuse to just abandon you!Continue 1
Elmott: Tch... Argh! Fine, whatever! Let’s go, Leader!
Elmott: Good grief... You better not make me regret agreeing to come with you...
Lyria: Don’t worry, we won’t! Right, (Captain)? Now let's go! This way!
Vyrn: Good grief... For now, we just need to get the hell out of here!
And so, under the cover of night, (Captain) and company left the village behind.
With Elmott newly counted among their number, our heroes resumed their journey.
