Scenario:Jeanne d'Arc - Otherworldly Invitation
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
In her dream Jeanne and her Orleans comrades try to save a village. When she hears of suspicious figures in the distance, she assumes them to be the baron's scouts and heads out to rout them.
Jeanne d'Arc previously took leave from the crew to help former comrades in Orleans save an oppressed village from its tyrannical baron.
The crew went to pick her up on an agreed date, but found and injured Jeanne in the middle of the ash the village had been reduced to.
She was in utter shock and despair from her failure to save the village as commanded by her revelation.
The broken Jeanne received a new revelation: to remove the threat of Vyrn and Lyria for the sake of world peace.
Thankfully Jeanne discovered that it was merely a plot set in motion by the Ethereal Presence to take over the world.
Jeanne then worked with the crew to defeat the Ethereal Presence.
Vyrn: Ah, Lyria. Is Jeanne asleep?
Lyria: Yes. I just hope she can sleep well.
Lyria: She's been looking awfully pale lately. I hope she'll be okay...
Vyrn: That perverted slimy creep! Manipulating Jeanne to turn against us!
Vyrn: Come at us all you want! But stop playing dirty, darn it!
Lyria: Not being able to save the village was already a lot for Jeanne to take in.
Vyrn: That was all planned by the slimy creep too! Treating people like his playthings!
Lyria: Hm, what's wrong, (Captain)?
Lyria: Right. We should be worried about Jeanne, not the Ethereal Presence.
Lyria: Isn't there anything we can do for her?
Vyrn: Hm, if only we could somehow cheer her up...
(Captain), Lyria, and Vyrn rack their brains over the matter, but to no avail.
Meanwhile Jeanne is asleep after being pushed by Lyria into getting some rest.
Jeanne d'Arc: Ugh...
Jeanne d'Arc: (The people of this village have everything they need to work together and lead peaceful lives... But all I see is gloom and despair.)
Jeanne d'Arc: (Everyone lives in constant fear of the tyranny of the baron and his personal guards.)
Jeanne d'Arc: (I must do what I can to restore peace to the village!)
Orleans Soldier: Jeanne! Our soldiers at the perimeter spotted suspicious-looking shadows around the village!
Jeanne d'Arc: Shadows? They might be the baron's scouts. I'll go take a look!
Orleans Soldier: Understood! We'll continue to watch for any suspicious activity!
Jeanne d'Arc: Thank you. I'll be back soon enough.
Jeanne d'Arc: There they are! They don't seem to be part of the baron's personal guard... They must be hired help.
Jeanne d'Arc: You there! Stop!
Hired Thug: Humph. Whaddaya want?
Jeanne d'Arc: I've come to save the village from its oppressive baron.
Jeanne d'Arc: The baron hired you, didn't he? Turn back now or you'll regret it!
Hired Thug: Hah! What's a lil' girl like you gonna do? You're the one that needs to turn back!
Jeanne d'Arc: Don't say I didn't warn you... Prepare yourself!
Otherworldly Invitation: Scene 2
Still in her dream world, Jeanne is so caught up with fighting the scouts that she doesn't realize the village has been set on fire. The last thing she sees in the awful nightmare is the souls of the fallen villagers and soldiers blaming her for their plight.
Hired Thug: Ngh!
Jeanne d'Arc: Don't take it personally.
Jeanne d'Arc: Phew... There could be more. I should check the area for other scouts before returning to town.
Jeanne's hunch proves true. She defeats the baron's hired thugs in the surrounding area.
Having fought them all off single-handedly, her injuries and fatigue build up.
Jeanne d'Arc: Huff... Huff... That should be all of them...
Jeanne d'Arc: I should get back to the village soon.
Jeanne drags her worn-out body along to the village.
On the way back, she beholds a sea of flames extending far and wide.
Jeanne d'Arc: Agh! Those flames!
Realizing the village has been set on fire, Jeanne stands dumbfounded.
Jeanne d'Arc: Wheeze... They set the entire village on fire?
Village Girl: He... Help...
Guardsman: Thought you could get away?
Village Girl: Aaagh!
Jeanne d'Arc: Curse you! She wasn't even fighting back!
An enraged Jeanne d'Arc fights furiously to protect the townspeople on the outskirts of town.
Being severely outnumbered, she suffers a critical wound.
Jeanne d'Arc: Ugh, I must reunite with my allies from Orleans...
Jeanne d'Arc: And... save the village... the people...
Before Jeanne can make it back to the village, she collapses from severe blood loss.
When she comes to, the flames have all but vanished, along with the village.
Jeanne d'Arc: How... could I let this happen?
Jeanne d'Arc: Even the women, the children, the elderly, and the sick... This is a massacre...
Having witnessed the deaths of all the townspeople and the Orleans soldiers, Jeanne nearly collapses but manages to stay up on one knee.
Jeanne d'Arc: Ugh...
Village Girl: Please... help me...
Orleans Soldier: Jeanne... We need your guidance!
Jeanne d'Arc: ...!
Village Girl: It hurts... Ngh... Help...
Orleans Soldier: Aaagh, I don't want to die yet! Please, no!
Jeanne d'Arc: The revelation ordained that I save the village... It trusted that I would be able to do so...
Jeanne d'Arc: And yet I have failed!
Village Girl: You promised you'd save us...
Orleans Soldier: Jeanne...
Jeanne d'Arc: Stop it... Please... I...
Ethereal Presence: Did you really think a foolish weakling like you could actually save anyone?
Jeanne d'Arc: I made a vow to save the world! And everyone in it!
Ethereal Presence: And here you are, and always will be, wallowing in self-pity.
Jeanne d'Arc: That's... not...
Ethereal Presence: Don't be a fool, Jeanne d'Arc. You are no saint. The world doesn't need you to save it. You are...
Vyrn: Jeanne! Jeanne, wake up!
Jeanne d'Arc: Ngh... Vyrn?
Vyrn: Are you all right? You were talking in your sleep.
Jeanne d'Arc: A dream... That was just a dream...
Vyrn: Hold it together, Jeanne!
Oh no, you're not looking too well...
Oh no, you're not looking too well...
Vyrn: We've an assignment to transport some cargo, but you should stay here and rest up.
Jeanne d'Arc: No, I'll come along.
Vyrn: Hey, no need to push yourself. It's not that difficult of an assignment anyway.
Jeanne d'Arc: Being alone makes me restless. I prefer to be out there in the company of others.
Vyrn: Yeah? Well the more the merrier!
Vyrn: Just remember to take it easy, Jeanne!
Jeanne d'Arc: Of course...
Having woken up from an awful nightmare, Jeanne departs with the crew on an assignment to transport cargo.
Otherworldly Invitation: Scene 3
An act of altruism by the crew shows Jeanne the meaning of true kindness. As she reflects on the thought, the Ethereal Presence once again rears its head.
The crew is attacked by monsters in the forest while transporting cargo.
Jeanne d'Arc: Ugh... Argh!
Lack of sleep dulls Jeanne's movements, but she still manages to push back the monsters.
Jeanne d'Arc: Oh no!
Jeanne is within a hair's breath of taking a lethal blow when (Captain) comes in to save her.
Vyrn: Jeanne! Are you okay?
Jeanne d'Arc: Yes! And thank you, (Captain)! I'll be more careful next time!
Thanks to everyone's efforts, (Captain) and company manage to fight off the monsters.
Lyria: I don't feel their presence in the area anymore.
Vyrn: Ugh, the client had us believing this would be an easy job. This isn't what we signed up for!
Jeanne d'Arc: Perhaps it was a lack of explanation on the client's part. Of course we could just drop the assignment here and now...
Vyrn: Yeah, but doing that would trouble the people expecting the cargo.
Jeanne d'Arc: That's... a fair point.
Vyrn: I'll just have to make sure he gets a mouthful from me when we go back to report the assignment!
Lyria: Teehee, I think we should help people in need whenever we can. Right, (Captain)?
(Captain) nods in agreement.
Jeanne d'Arc: You're all so kind.
Vyrn: Hehe, stop it! You're making us blush! Anyway you can count on us if you ever need help with anything, Jeanne.
Vyrn: Because we'll definitely be counting on you when we need help!
Lyria: Oh, Vyrn!
Lyria: Vyrn's right though. We're here for you, Jeanne. There's no need to hold anything back.
Jeanne d'Arc: ...
Jeanne d'Arc: Thank you.
Having spent too much time fighting the monsters, nightfall comes too soon and the crew decides to camp out.
Halfway through the night, Jeanne gets up to reflect upon recent events beside the campfire.
Jeanne d'Arc: (When was it that I lost the will to help people? I was once no different from (Captain) and everyone else.)
Jeanne d'Arc: (Ever since receiving the revelation to save the world, it's all I've cared about.)
Jeanne d'Arc: (But (Captain) and the others help people out of kindheartedness, pure and simple. They speak nothing of justice.)
Jeanne d'Arc: (Should I not try to be more like them?)
Jeanne d'Arc: It's you!
Ethereal Presence: Jeanne d'Arc, you can save no one.
Village Girl: You couldn't even save us...
Orleans Soldier: Are you sure the revelation didn't tell you to send us to an early grave instead?
Ethereal Presence: Look at how powerless you are! Watch as the spirits of those you let die curse you!
Jeanne d'Arc: ...
Jeanne d'Arc: Silence! I've had enough of your senseless prattle!
Jeanne d'Arc: My mistakes and my regrets are mine alone! And I will have you insult me no further! En garde!
Otherworldly Invitation: Scene 4
Jeanne defeats the Ethereal Presence and makes peace with the souls of the fallen villagers and soldiers she couldn't save. (Captain) and company are overjoyed to see her in good spirits again.
Ethereal Presence: Gwaar...
Village Girl: ...
Jeanne d'Arc: I failed to save you because I lack the strength to do so. I am truly sorry...
Jeanne d'Arc: But I cannot be trapped by my past mistakes. Lest I repeat them.
Jeanne d'Arc: After all if I am no longer able to save the people who need saving, then what use am I?
Orleans Soldier: ...
Jeanne d'Arc: To prevent any more tragedies like yourselves, I hereby swear to serve the common people. And this is a promise I vow never to forget.
Jeanne d'Arc: I'm sorry to say I cannot ask you to take me with you at this moment.
Jeanne bows in reverence to the fallen spirits.
Seeing her newfound resolve, the fallen spirits smile peacefully before disappearing.
Jeanne d'Arc: Forgive me... And thank you.
Lyria: Yawn... Good morning, Jeanne.
Jeanne d'Arc: Good morning, Lyria. Did you sleep well?
Lyria: Of course I did!
Jeanne d'Arc: Hm... Don't tell me... There's something stuck to my face?
Lyria: No, that's not it. You seem... somehow different from yesterday!
Vyrn: That's for sure! It's back to the good ol' Jeanne we know!
Jeanne d'Arc: Good ol' Jeanne? Hm, maybe so.
Jeanne d'Arc: Vyrn, Lyria, (Captain). I'm sorry for all the trouble I've caused up until now.
Jeanne d'Arc: And I am truly thankful that you've been able to look past my faults and be by my side all this time.
Jeanne d'Arc: To show my gratitude, I will look to the future once again. And I will never stop marching forward this time.
Jeanne d'Arc: To protect the people!
Jeanne's newfound resolve burns bright.
Though she has not forgotten her past mistakes, Jeanne is more determined than ever to push forward and will surely never waver again.
