Scenario:Ezecrain - The Guiding Chains
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
The Guiding Chains
Ezecrain was pursuing the thug who stole a powerful amethyst from his family. He told (Captain) and company that his amethyst chains were responding to them, and so in accordance, he joined their order.
Hoping to replenish their travel funds, our heroes paid a visit to Siero’s shop in hopes of taking on a request.
Vyrn: Hehe! It’s times like these I’m glad you’re mysteriously everywhere! Sure makes it easy to get jobs!
Sierokarte: Welcome, welcome! Thanks to you, my ratings are sky-high!
Vyrn: But of course! So, what kinda jobs do you have for us?
Vyrn: Let’s see here... Babysitting... Investigating a cheating husband... Hang on! These aren’t jobs for skyfarers!
Lyria: Look at this, (Captain)! I found a missing persons request!
Lyria: Hm... Apparently, they want us to find a con man named Ezecrain.
Sierokarte: Let’s see... Ah, yes! As I recall, this is a request from Drang and his friend.
Sierokarte: Apparently Ezecrain tricked them, or something...
Vyrn: Sigh... Good grief, those two... Why can’t they just solve their own problems?!
Sierokarte: Teehee! I agree completely! Well then... How about this one? It’s a big job I set aside for a rainy day!
Recently, some thugs had been growing their forces. This “big job” involved destroying their hideout, and (Captain) and company agreed to do it.
With only this small bit of information to go on, our heroes made their way into the hideout and succeeded in cornering the thugs.
Thug 1: GAAAHHH!!!
Thug 2: EEEGH...!!!
Vyrn: Alrighty! That takes care of the weaklings! Let’s keep on going and destroy the whole damn hideout!
???: Who are you people...? And what are you doing here?
Vyrn: Whoa! We missed one!
Vyrn: Let’s go, (Captain)! This guy looks a lot tougher than the guys we left in piles over there...!
???: Listen here, brats. Do you understand just what this place is?
Vyrn: Of course we do! We took on a request to destroy these thugs and this whole hideout!
???: I see... Then you were responsible for all this damage.
???: Looks like I won’t be getting any information now... Good grief. Why did you have to go and do this?
Vyrn: Are you their buddy or something, wise guy? If so, (Captain) here will totally take you on!
???: Don’t make me laugh. I don’t have time to sit around and play with brats like you... Now move!
Vyrn: Ack! HEY! Wait up, you swine!
Vyrn: Damn it... I can’t believe we lost one of ‘em.
Vyrn: Good grief... What was the point in defeating all those weaklings if we let that one get away...?
Sierokarte: Hm... Amethysts on chains and a bejeweled forehead, you say... Based on that description, I’d say that’s Ezecrain...
Lyria: What?! Ezecrain, as in, the conman that Drang is searching for?
Sierokarte: Yes, indeed! That being said, the only people who speak badly of him are powerful villains and other shady individuals...
Vyrn: Huh? What's that supposed to mean?
Sierokarte: Well, you see... Ezecrain is somewhat... misunderstood, shall we say...
There was once a time when Ezecrain and his family lived a happy life under the protection of a powerful amethyst.
But dark forces stole the amethyst and used it to leave deep scars on everyone, telling them that their era of peace was over...
Sierokarte: Sooo, yeah... Ezecrain is searching for the organization that took his family’s peace away...
Ezecrain: Hey, shopkeep! Stop right there... Don’t tell them more than they need to know.
Vyrn: Whoa! Speak of the devil... It’s the man in chains!
Ezecrain: You people again...
Ezecrain: Hey, shopkeep! I’ve retrieved the valuables the thugs stole from you. Consider your request complete.
Sierokarte: Oh my! Great work! Now for your reward!
Sierokarte: Heehee! As you can see, Ezecrain is no villain. He’s an ally of the oppressed!
Ezecrain: Hmph... Don’t get the wrong idea. I only accepted the request to further my own goals.
Vyrn: Still, I wish you would have told us that from the start!
Ezecrain: Why should I have to explain my circumstances to a bunch of strangers?
Ezecrain: Have you come to pity me after what the shopkeep’s told you?
Vyrn: Wha?! That’s not it at all! B-But... We might be able to help you...
Ezecrain: Hah! Ignorant fools.
Ezecrain: My goal was to deceive the thugs, infiltrate their hideout, and gain information... But I was hindered by a certain group, wasn’t I?
Vyrn: Say that again?! You think WE hindered YOU?!
Ezecrain: Hmph... Thanks to you, I lost out on that crucial information.
Ezecrain: I have no more time to waste on you people. Now move.
One of the amethyst chains entwined around Ezecrain’s arms suddenly started to move by itself.
Vyrn: What the?! Wh-what’s going on with that chain?!
Ezecrain: Absurd... Don’t tell me it was reacting to these brats...
Sierokarte: Oho! Your amethysts are always shockingly accurate, aren’t they, Ezecrain?
Sierokarte: How about it? I’m sure (Captain) and friends will prove a highly valuable resource in achieving your goals!
Vyrn: Hey! Stay out of this, would ya!
Sierokarte: You have nothing to worry about! I can vouch for Ezecrain’s ability.
Ezecrain: Hmph... Interesting. It appears you people will be of use to me after all.
Vyrn: Wha?! “Be of use?!"
Ezecrain: Everything is as the amethysts foretold... I will reel in the chains of fate.
Ezecrain: I will make use of your strength in order to achieve my goals.
Choose: You’ll see how strong we can be
Vyrn: Hang on! Let’s not make any hasty commitments here!
Choose: I think you’re overestimating us...
Vyrn: What the... hey! That wasn’t a compliment!Continue 1
Vyrn: Good grief... Once you agree to something, there’s no budging you, (Captain).
Vyrn: Oh, fine! We’ll help you achieve your ends, Mr. Chains.
Ezecrain: Relax. I don’t have excessive expectations for you brats. Now, lead me to your ship, and make it quick.
Vyrn: Ack! Hey! Wait! We’re not done talking!
Ezecrain: I see... So your ship is over here.
Vyrn: Hey! You're so rude! Listen when someone’s talking to you!!!
With Ezecrain newly added to their ranks, our heroes boarded their airship and set out into the sky.
Would Ezecrain be able to achieve his goals by following his chains?
