Scenario:Helnar - An Eternal Temptation
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
An Eternal Temptation
Unable to turn down a request from a woman, Helnar accepted a job to hunt monsters, forcing the entire party to go along with it. Sensing the presence of a beautiful woman in the forest, Helnar rushes in. When the party chases after him, they are confronted by a monster.
In a dark forest far from civilization...
(Captain) and company were on a monster hunt requested by a village.
Vyrn: Oh, geez. We managed to defeat all of them... Those monsters were tough.
Rackam: Geez. Why do you keep accepting requests left, right, and center? You gotta know when to quit.
Helnar: You don’t understand anything, Rackam. When a lovely woman asks something of you, you do it.
Katalina: You’re hopeless... Still, I don’t see the monster den anywhere... Well, I suppose it should be enough if we defeated this many.
Vyrn: Hmm? Hey, what's up?
Helnar: Shh! I sense something...
Katalina: Hm...? What is it? Is it a monster’s den?
Helnar: This is... I’m sure of it! I sense the presence of a beautiful woman!
Vyrn: Why you little... Ah! Hey! Wait!
Katalina: Oh, brother... I don’t think he’ll ever change... We have no choice but to go after him. Let’s go, (Captain).
Rackam: Hmm... We've come pretty far into the forest... Where’s this "beautiful woman"?
Rackam: ... tsk. Hey, there’s Helnar. Hey! Let’s go back...
Katalina: ...! A monster?! There’s another one!
Rackam: Let’s go, (Captain)! We have to do this!
An Eternal Temptation: Scene 2
The party finds an eroded tombstone in the middle of the forest. The tombstone belonged to someone of the Erune race, just like Helnar. His people used to live deep within the forest, refusing to interact with people of other races. Without time to look back on this death, monsters suddenly appeared.
Rackam: So? We came this far into the forest, but did you find your beautiful woman?
Rackam: What’s the matter, Helnar? What are you looking at...? What’s this?
Katalina: It’s... a tombstone. Why would there be one so far from civilization?
Helnar: This is a graveyard of the Erune.
Lyria: Erune... So... Your people, Helnar?
Helnar: Yeah. In ancient times, Erune refused to interact with other races and hid deep inside the forests.
Helnar: This graveyard must have been abandoned when the village moved.
Vyrn: Hmm... But looking at you, I have a hard time believing your people hated interacting with others.
Helnar: You think so? But being a bit unpredictable makes you all the more attractive, right?
Katalina: Hm! Monsters again! We’ll talk after we defeat them!
An Eternal Temptation: Scene 3
What was once a village of the Erune had turned into a den of monsters. While they were exterminating the monsters at the village, a powerful monster appeared.
Katalina: Hm... The monster’s den must be close by. Let’s try to look for it.
Helnar: I found it! Over here.
Katalina: Hm? T-This is...
Helnar: This is the ruins of what was once an Erune village. The monsters must have taken over.
Vyrn: I see... Erune villages are in secluded places, far away from anyone else. No wonder we couldn’t find the monster’s den!
Rackam: Hey! Looks like the boss is here! Let’s beat it down!
An Eternal Temptation: Scene 4
Though they had managed to exterminate the monsters, Helnar gets sentimental at the ruins of the Erune village. After returning to the village, cheered on by the young women for his bravery, Helnar returns to his usual flippant self. (Captain) laughs at the sight of it.
Lyria: Watch out! Helnar, behind you!
Helnar: Yeah... Thank you. You saved me, (Captain).
Rackam: Hell Helnar, what was all that about the "presence of a beautiful woman"?
Helnar: Beats me... Maybe I was called by the will of the Erune because I disturbed her slumber.
Helnar: The Erune people only started interacting with other races after a long war.
Helnar: I’m glad I was born to see this time. I get to travel with my dear partner, and I was able to meet you guys, too.
Helnar: Okay! Now that we took care of the monsters, we better report this to the beautiful women at the village!
Katalina: I think I get it... The reason he was so gung-ho was because of his lonely past as a member of the Erune.
Vyrn: Not bad! I see you in a new light now... You're so considerate of your old comrades...
Village Girl: Amazing! You’re great, Helnar! You defeated the boss all by yourself?!
Village Girl: You’re too cool! But it must have been strong. Aren’t you hurt?
Helnar: Haha! No need to worry! Cute girls like you are the source of my strength!
Vyrn: Sigh... Can I take back what I said earlier?
Lyria: You're amazing! Helnar, you’re so popular!
Katalina: Haha! Color me surprised...
Rackam: Oh, brother... I think he’d be like that no matter where he came from...
The swordsman of the Erune race, Helnar, continues to enjoy the company of beautiful women.
The once solitary and proud race may become a frank and open people like him in the near future... Perhaps.
