Scenario:Koume Shirasaka - Let's Be Pals
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
Let's Be Pals
During their journey, (Captain)'s party and Koume hear about a zombie called Buddy, who, despite being undead, wished for a friend. On hearing this, Koume began to dream of being that friend. While heading to find Buddy, the party has to battle through a host of other monsters.
Koume: My heart is pounding… This must be the place.
Vyrn: Oh! According to the rumor, we need to head inside this island!
Lyria: Hmm… OK, let's go,(Captain)!
During their travels, the party and Koume heard a rumor.
A rumor that a zombie living on that particular island, named Buddy, longed for a friend.
Koume: Oh, Buddy… I wonder what kind of zombie you are… and whether I'll be a good friend for you…
Koume: If we do become friends, what will we do together… Will we play zombie make-believe?
Koume: Or, we could watch horror movies together… Though would you be too critical of the actors playing the zombies, Buddy?
Lyria: Hahaha, that sounds like it would be fun, Koume.
Koume: Yeah… It would be great to have a zombie friend.
Koume: There's so many things I want to do together with him…
Vyrn: Hey! It's good that you're excited about this, but don't get carried away!
Vyrn: We're really only just now getting close to where Buddy lives, and it looks like there are some less friendly monsters live around here too!
Koume: You're right… I could get bitten by another zombie before I even get to meet Buddy.
Koume: And if I'm bitten… I could become a zombie. I-if that's the case, then… could we still be friends?
Vyrn: Hey! Heyyy! That's not going to happen! We need to get rid of these monsters, (Captain)!
Let's Be Pals: Scene 2
The party finally finds Buddy, and Koume attempts to communicate with him. He responds, but just as he holds his hand out to her, two other zombies burst in and separate them.
Accompanying Koume, as she became more and more excited, (Captain)'s party walked straight into a thick fog.
Upon emerging from the dense mist they found the zombie who wishes for a friend, Buddy.
Vyrn: (Gulp) Now Koume, I know how you must be feeling, but don't lose focus now…
Koume: Er, excuse me… are you…is your name Buddy?
Koume: I… I heard about you, and came all the way here to find you.
Koume: So, if it's okay with you, would you like me to be your friend?
Vyrn: Uhh… are you sure this is okay? I feel like he could lunge at her at any moment…
Lyria: I don't know… but… Buddy doesn't seem like he's hostile at all…
The whole group watched the two timidly kindling their friendship.
Then, unexpectedly, Buddy reached his arm towards Koume, as if in offer of a handshake. Koume offered her hand forwards too.
Koume: Th-thank you! I look forward to getting to know y?
Zombie 1: Graaargh!
As Buddy was reaching out to Koume, two other zombies blundered in and got between them.
Zombie 2: Braaaaaaains!
Vyrn: Whoa, watch out! Get away from those zombies, Koume!
Zombie 3: Braaaaaaains!
Koume: These zombies…seem angry?
Koume: But why? Is it because Buddy and I became friends?
Koume: Can the living and the undead really never become friends…?
Koume: No, that can't be so… Whether you're alive or undead… friends are still friends…
Koume: I won't give up, I'll show these zombies that I can be friends with whoever I choose!
Let's Be Pals: Scene 3
Koume tries to shake Buddy's hand again, however, this time he suddenly bares his teeth as she approaches. Koume is taken aback, but Buddy rushes past her to attack another zombie who was preparing to strike her from behind. During the struggle with the other zombie, Buddy and his assailant fall over the nearby cliff edge. While the rest of the party are surprised by his seemingly self-sacrificial actions, Koume insists that Buddy survived the fall, and promises to meet him again someday.
After dispatching the zombies who interrupted Koume's touching moment, (Captain)'s party turn to face Buddy once more.
Koume: Buddy… Er, this is a little embarrassing, but could we try the handshake again…
All of a sudden, Buddy bared his teeth and launched himself towards the unprepared Koume.
However, he quickly moved past Koume and into the shadows behind her.
Vyrn: Gah! We musta missed one of those zombies!
While he was fighting the other zombie, Buddy and the zombie got too close to a nearby cliff, and plummeted over the edge.
With the cliff face engulfed in fog, the party had no way of knowing whether either zombie survived the fall.
Lyria: No, Buddy… And so soon after you finally met him…
Vyrn: Even though he was just a floundering zombie, he still seemed like a good guy…
Lyria: Yeah… but Buddy's already…
Koume: No… he's fine, I know it.
Koume: Buddy is OK, they think so too… And I believe he survived the fall…
Koume: So… heh, see you soon, Buddy.
Koume: I know we'll meet again someday… We can play together then, right?
After promising Buddy that they will meet again, Koume and the party left the island.
Then later, they heard word that Buddy did indeed survive the fall, and was living peacefully.
And was even still searching for friends, allowing the party to rest easy.
