From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
A Light in the Dark
While they were looking for primal crystals, (Captain) and company stopped by the market. There, they receive a mission to deal with thugs. However, the hideout of the thugs is in a dark cave that Eso is afraid of... Eso gathers his courage to go but is then attacked by monsters.
Eso: That’s a huge town... So many people...
Vyrn: Hey, man! Stay alert or you’ll get lost!
The company continue their search for primal crystals. They stopped by a bustling market in order to replenish their supplies.
Vyrn: But if you’re as big as that, I’m sure we easily find it.
Eso: Too many people... Many times... Eso’s village...
Storekeeper: Mister! The big guy over there! Yeah, you!
Eso: ...! Y-You mean, Eso?
Storekeeper: Yeah. You’re huge! I can tell that you’re strong, too.
Storekeeper: I know this is sudden, but I have a favor to ask. It should be easy considering how strong you look.
Rackam: I see... So this is the place where the dine-and-dash thugs are.
Katalina: Yes. It seems that they looked at Eso’s big physique and asked him to deal with those thugs.
Eso: C-Cave... D-Dark...
Vyrn: H-Hey! You okay?
Eso: I-I’m not scared! Eso, help people in need. Bad people, will be punished!
Vyrn: All right! That’s the spirit!
Rackam: Yeah, but I don’t think it’ll be that simple.
Eso: Monsters... will not interfere. Let’s... defeat them, (Captain)!
A Light in the Dark: Scene 2
After defeating the monsters, (Captain) and company barged into the hideout. Eso gathered his courage while shaking in fear of the dark. The thugs then sent even more monsters at the party.
Vyrn: Hey, big guy! Are you okay?
Eso: E-Eso, not scared!
Thug 1: Oh? Who are you? You just come barging into our hideout uninvited!
Katalina: ...! It’s them... They have absolutely no class...
Eso: H-Hey! You...!
Thug 1: Huh? What?
Eso: You, did bad things! You, make problems for the townspeople. Say sorry, and pay them!
Thug 1: Huh? Why are you telling us what to do?
Thug 2: Heh... Look at him. He’s big, but look at him shake.
Thug 1: Hah! You think a coward like you can tell us what to do?!
Rackam: Oh, boy. Looks like they’re not going to listen. Seems like we’ll have to make them pay by force.
Thug 1: Heh! We’re not going to deal with you personally! This is why we made this hideout!
Thug 1: Come out here!
Thug 1: Come on! My monsters! It’s time for your meal! Get that big one over there!
A Light in the Dark: Scene 3
(Captain) and company defeated the monsters. The thugs plead while teary-eyed that they are committing crimes for a very good reason. But this is just to trick the trusting Eso.
Thug 1: No way! The monsters!
Vyrn: Haha! Don’t underestimate (Captain)! Just give it up!
Thug 1: Eek! W-Wait...! Hear me out here!
Katalina: What now? You don’t seem to know when to quit...
Thug 1: There’s a really good reason why we did it.
Thug 1: Well... It’s not that we wanted to do that... But we didn’t have a choice...
Thug 1: ...
Thug 1: Hehe... Just kidding! I got you!
Thug 1: N-No way... H-How did he...?
Eso: You, tricked the townspeople... And now you trick Eso.
Eso: Lying... is bad. Eso, now mad!
Eso: Prepare yourself! Eso, will not forgive until you apologize!
Thug 1: Damn it!
A Light in the Dark: Scene 4
Eso punished the thugs for their evil deeds and lies. It seemed that he has overcome his fear of the dark through his battle for justice. But when Eso came to his senses, he feared the darkness of the cave again. He suggests that they leave right away.
Thug 1: N-No way... Ugh...
Eso: Listen. Lie again... And Eso punish you.
Eso: Eso, know many monster dens with hungry monsters. You, very welcome there.
Thug 1: Eek...!
Vyrn: Come on! That’s going a bit overboard!
Thug 1: I-I’m so sorry! I won’t ever do it again! I’ll pay up, too! So please spare my life!
Rackam: All right! I guess the problem is solved now. It’s all thanks to you, Eso!
Vyrn: Ahh! They’re all shaken up with the threat from the big guy!
Lyria: You said it! Eso is amazing!
Lyria: Haha. He’s afraid of the dark, but he’s fighting so bravely...
Eso: N-Not scared! But darkness... is bad.
Eso: (Captain)...! We... leave!
The kind-hearted giant, Eso, continues to wield his axe for his justice.
Even when dark clouds gather, he will be able to fight off his fear of the dark for the sake of his friends.
