Scenario:Io - Raring to Go
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
Raring to Go
The crew is looking for a missing boy. Io is eager to show off how her magic has gotten stronger, but she lets the boy out of her sight and he ends up surrounded by monsters. A passing witch displays amazing mastery of the magic arts as she blows all the monsters away with a single spell. She wishes to join the crew, but only if she can be the only magic user on board. Io, feeling defeated, discovers that she can no longer use her magic.
The crew finds itself deep within a cave on an errand.
Their task is to find a missing boy. Io however is in high spirits as she leads the way.
Io: Hellooo! Is anyone heeere? If you're here come out and tell us, 'K?
Vyrn: Heeey! Hmm… I guess there's no one in here. He must've gone somewhere else.
Lyria: Or he's even deeper into the cave? I sense there might be monsters about…
Io: Monsters? Yay! Let's press on then!
Vyrn: Hey, what's the rush? Monsters aren't anything to get excited about, y'know!
Io: Hehehe, I'm just in a good mood. Besides, this is a great chance for me to practice my magic!
Io: Thanks to our adventures I'm feeling a lot more confident with it! The more I fight, the stronger I feel?
Lyria: Io, over there! It's the boy! But…
Boy: Waaaaaah! Mommy! Daddy!
Vyrn: Oh no! He's surrounded by monsters!
Io: All right, just leave this to me! Hi-yaaa!
Io: Heheheh! OK, who's next?
Lyria: Amazing, Io! You really have gotten stronger!
Vyrn: You're right! She's getting really powerful now!
Vyrn: But wait, where'd the kid go?
Boy: Waaaaaah! Somebody help me!
Io: Aaah! Impossible, I only had my back turned for a moment!
Lyria: Run, little boy! Oh no, he's not going to make it!
Io: Erm… Was that… Magic?
Female Mage: Hehe. I thought I heard something. Are you all right, little boy?
Boy: Thank you missus! I thought I was a goner for sure!
Vyrn: Wow, that was sooo cool! You took out all those monsters with a single spell!
Female Mage: That was nothing. None of you are hurt, are you?
Lyria: I'm fine. Io, are you hurt?
Vyrn: Hey, Io! You listening?
Io: …I'm fine…
Female Mage: Good. Now, I'll help you with the rest of the monsters, if you'll help me collect the herbs I need. Deal?
When the crew returns with the young boy the village elder organizes a celebration, where the witch was deservedly praised.
Villager 1: We heard about what you did, miss witch! You must be a very powerful magic user!
Villager 2: We're so thankful! We're going to erect a statue in your honor!
Female Mage: Please, there's no need. Any one of you would have done the same.
Vyrn: But, it really was amazing! I've never seen magic like that before!
Female Mage: Hehe. You weren't so bad, yourselves! You all look very young, but surely you must be skyfarers. Am I right?
Lyria: Yes! We're on a quest to find the Isle of the Astrals, Estalucia!
Female Mage: The Isle of the Astrals, you say? How fascinating. You know, I like you.
Female Mage: I wonder, would you have use of a poor witch like me?
Vyrn: Of course we would! You'd be welcomed with open arms! Right, (Captain)?
Female Mage: Hehe, thank you. But, I have one condition.
Female Mage: I must be the only magic user in your employ. You must dismiss all others before I join.
Lyria: What! Erm… You see…
Female Mage: That's my condition. You saw yourself that I'm as powerful as a hundred witches.
Vyrn: Your power's not exactly the problem.
Female Mage: …I've looked for so long, for a crew that I would risk my life for. And you surely would benefit from my magics, no?
Female Mage: Hmm? And who is this?
Io: Eh… Erm… I mean, maybe we haven't explained our situation enough. You see, we're being chased by the Empire.
Io: It's a really dangerous situation, maybe you'd be better off not joining us.
Female Mage: The Empire? Heh, I could use some practice.
Io: Ah! W-well, we also have some really lecherous old men in the crew…
Io: Rackam smells bad, and Eugen can be really rude. A-anyway, what I'm trying to say is that they stink!
Vyrn: Hey, what're you?
Io: So It's really not a place for a lady such as you!
Female Mage: Heheh, sounds like fun! A good crew needs a few salty characters.
Io: Wah! You're really not getting it, are you?
Io: Our captain's a kid, Vyrn's a weird lizard-looking thing… We're a bunch of complete misfits!
Io: You'd hate it! We're on a terrible quest with a probably non-existent goal!
Female Mage: Terrible quest? If what this little girl has said is true, then you must have been through quite a lot to get here.
Io: What?Little girl?
Vyrn: Cool your jets, Io. This witch doesn't seem like a bad person.
Io: Ah! I thought you were on my side, you little lizard!
Lyria: A-aah… Io, can we talk about this later?
Io: Humph! …Humph humph humph!
Io: So what'll happen if she joins us? She's a master magic user! So I guess I should just leave?
Io: …Fine then, here I go!
Lyria: I-Io! Oh dear, she's flown off…
Female Mage: I'm sorry, I think I said something I shouldn't have.
Vyrn: Don't worry, it's not your fault. But what are we gonna do, (Captain)?
Io is sitting beneath a tree deep within a forest, cradling her knees.
Io: Sob… Sniffle… They must hate me…
Io: Fine… There's no way I'm going back to them now…
Hearing footsteps Io looks up… And sees (Captain) appear from the undergrowth.
Io: (Captain), what're you doing here?
Choose: I came for you.
Io: Sob… You needn't have bothered. It's not like we're friends any more! You don't need to care about me.
Choose: I'm just out for a walk.
Io: Oh! Well, I'm not talking to you anymore, so do your walking someplace else.Continue 1
Io: …Thank you.
Io: Eh? The others are looking for me too? I see, I've caused everyone so much trouble…
Io: Eh… erm… Did you know that it was my master who made my wand and clothes? He put lots of his magic into them.
Io: But I still couldn't save that boy… That witch is so much more powerful than me.
Io: I've brought shame to my master! I'm not worthy to hold this wand! What am I going to do…
Io: Monsters! A-and it sounds like a lot of 'em!
Io: This time… This time for sure I'll beat that witch! I'll show you who's the real magic user here!
Io: Huh? My magic, i-it's not working!
Io: N-no worries, I'll just try again! Taaake this!
Io: Why… Why is this happening to me? Why, (Captain)!
Io: My magic… My magic's gone!
Io slumps to the ground, even as the horde of monsters approaches.
The poor duo find themselves in a seemingly hopeless situation. Monster howls surround them in the darkness.
