Scenario:Leona - Home Cooking
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
(Captain) and the crew accompany Leona's troop to the island located on the border of Idelva's territory. The Grandcypher gang help protect the island's construction efforts from increasingly frequent monster attacks.
One morning, after (Captain) and the others have fallen into the groove of life in Idelva, Lyria awakens bright and early.
Lyria: Yaaawn... Good morning...
Vyrn: Yeesh, talk about a wake-up call! What's goin' on?
Cain: Hey! You guys awake, huh?
Leona: Good morning, everyone. Did you sleep well?
Vyrn: Yeah, yeah, just tell us what's happening!
Leona: Sorry to disturb you. We're making preparations for an expedition. Nothing to worry about.
Lyria: An expedition? Where's everyone headed?
Leona: A small island on the boundary of Idelva's territory. It's a strategic location, so we're building a fortress there.
Leona: And it's our troop's turn to assume guard duty for the project.
Cain: Monsters are known to inhabit the island, so the military engineers require protection to get their work done.
Cain: But, maaan, they say the monsters pop up like daisies on that island. This is gonna be such a pain.
Cain: Do we really have to go...
Vyrn: Oh, if it's just fightin' off creepies, you gotta let us help too! Right, (Captain)?
Choose: Sure, we could lend a hand.
Lyria: Yes! Please let us help!
Cain: Oh! Absolutely!
Leona: Cain! It's like you want them to do our job for us!
Cain: Hahaha! Sorry about that. It's just it's hard to ignore an earnest request from (Captain)'s crew.
Cain: Actually, (Captain), this is convenient because Leo was struggling to figure out how to ask you herself.
Cain: Come on... We can't really devote the manpower to the operation, so their assistance would go a long way.
Leona: Sorry, (Captain)... But it's just as Cain suggests.
Leona: To be honest...
Leona: Her Majesty gave me orders to ask you to join our force for the mission.
Leona: It's shameful, but there simply aren't enough spare soldiers in Idelva Kingdom to properly guard a remote island.
Leona: Your cooperation would be greatly appreciated.
Leona: Please remember that this is just a request—feel free to decline if you wish. You and your crew are guests of our kingdom after all.
Leona: I'm sure you're still exhausted from your travels, so I was wondering if I should've asked you at all.
Choose: We want to help you.
Choose: Not a problem!
Thank you very much!
Thank you very much!
Vyrn: Well, you heard the captain! Let's get a move on!
(Captain) and the others accompany Cain, Leona, and their troop to the small island.
Vyrn: Umm... This is just a regular ol' island! There's nothin' here!
Leona: Haha. Of course. There aren't any plans to build a city here.
Leona: We're going to construct a fortress on the island while attempting to leave the forest undisturbed.
Leona turns her gaze toward the woodlands in the distance.
Lyria: Ahem, so what about the monsters?
Leona: Right. Originally they lived deep in the woods, but recently they've been coming this way.
Leona: We haven't harmed the forest, so they shouldn't have a reason to approach our construction site...
Leona: Sigh... It's perplexing...
She puts a hand on her forehead in frustration.
Choose: Any other problems?
Leona: Well... Yes, actually...
Cain: The biggest problem of all: not enough food on this island to feed Leo so now she's all grumpy.
Vyrn: Haha! That's what you're worried about, Leona?
Having been in Idelva for several days, (Captain) and the others have had ample time to see Leona's eating habits.
One time, while Leona and Cain were showing the crew around town, Leona made an especially impressive show of her meal.
Leona: Whew... Excuse me, waiter! One more of these, please!
Waiter: Hahaha! Comin' right up! You sure can put it down!
Leona: What's wrong, everyone? You're not eating? Oh... You don't like it?
Leona: Both skyfarers and soldiers rely on food for sustenance, so hurry and eat up.
Vyrn: Um... Well, just watchin' you feast is more than enough to make me stuffed.
Vyrn: Yeeeah... They definitely won't have enough food on this island to satisfy Leona.
Lyria: Hahaha... And there's no restaurants.
Leona: I'm telling you, that's not it...
Choose: Just hold out till we get back to the palace.
Leona: Not you too, (Captain)!
Cain: I remember you and Abel eating a crazy amount together.
Cain: Now that I think about it, I remember you being really good at cooking, Leo. But you haven't cooked anything recently, right? Why's that?
Leona: For the last time, I'm not concerned about our rations! It's the development of the island I'm anxious about! It's been delayed!
Vyrn: Whoa, for real?
Leona: This island's topography is a little out of the norm; the bedrock is unstable, so it needs to be reinforced.
Leona: But monsters keep appearing, and thus they haven't been able to do proper inspections or flood control—not to mention the reinforcement itself.
Lyria: Oh... That sounds bad...
Leona: I'm thankful you're all here, at any rate.
Cain: It'll all work out in the end, Leo. For now all we have to do is protect those engineers, right?
Leona: Hehe. General Cain, sir, your lighthearted command is appreciated as always.
Cain: Wait. You're actually mad, aren't you?
Leona: Sigh... Did I not just laugh?
Vyrn: Whew... Well, it looks like we've got our work cut out for us.
Leona: The tough times haven't even begun yet.
Leona: For Idelva Kingdom to achieve unity, we'll need to develop more islands like this one.
Leona: We can't let the first step intimidate us.
Cain: Fine, but you can relax and let your hair down just a little, Leo.
Cain: Don't you think so, (Captain)?
Choose: You could ease up a little.
Leona: Do you really think so? If you're the one to suggest it, (Captain), then I should give it some thought...
Choose: You're trying too hard, Leona.
Leona: A-am I? When you put it that way, (Captain), I could stand to take it a little easier...Continue 1
When the conversation begins to trail off, everyone turns their focus to guarding the construction site—just in time to intercept an unwelcome guest.
Vyrn: Whoa! Head's up everybody!
Cain: Well, time to start working! Let's have at 'em, Leo, (Captain)!
Leona: (Captain), you take point!
Home Cooking: Scene 2
While fighting monsters, unstable ground beneath the crew gives way and swallows (Captain), Leona, and Vyrn. They immediately start searching for an exit, but encounter a large, subterranean monster that seems to be the cause of both the island's shaky bedrock and its aggressive monsters.
(Captain) lands a brutal blow on the monster; Cain jumps in moments later.
Cain: Time to finish it off!
Leona: What's that shaking noise?
In the next instant, holes begin opening up in the ground.
Vyrn: Gah! The ground's comin' apart!
The broken earth almost swallows Cain, but Leona manages to catch his hand and pull him to safety.
But this motion, combined with the rattling earth, causes Leona to lose her balance, and she goes tumbling into the hole in place of Cain.
(Captain) plunges into the pitch-black darkness after Leona.
Vyrn: Huh? Hey... Wait up! (Captain)! I'm comin' in too!
Vyrn follows (Captain) into the cavernous pit.
Vyrn: Uh-oh... Did the opening get sealed up?
Leona: (Captain)! Vyrn! Did you two fall as well?
Vyrn: Kind of. (Captain) jumped in after you.
Leona: You jumped into this pitfall for me?
Choose: Are you hurt?
Leona: Other than a few bruises, I think I'm fine. Thank you.
Leona: More importantly, I knew the bedrock here was unstable, but I wasn't expecting this.
Leona: What's with this cavern... Even the military wasn't aware of such a large open space beneath the ground.
Vyrn: What do we do, (Captain)? Don't think we'll be able to escape from here—I can't see any way back up.
Choose: We'll find a different way.
Leona: You're right. It appears that the cave continues in this direction. Perhaps it will lead back to the surface.
Leona confidently walks forward, (Captain) and Vyrn following in tow.
Vyrn: Maaan... Why's this kinda thing always happenin' to us?
Vyrn: Well, at least this island's small. I don't think it'll hurt you to be away from Lyria at this distance, (Captain).
Vyrn: Hey, Leona, do you mind slowin' down a little? My wings are tired.
Vyrn: Um, Leona?
Leona: Oh no... We have to get back now...
Leona: Vyrn, (Captain), we have to hurry. They might still be fighting on the surface.
Leona goes silent as she quickens her pace; (Captain) and Vyrn follow suit.
Leona: This way? Mmm, no... That way, I believe!
The caverns twist and turn like a spider web, but Leona navigates the complicated halls with instinctive aplomb.
Vyrn: Lee-ooh-naa... Don't you think we're rushin' a little much here?
Leona: Sorry, Vyrn... It's just that we've got a job to—
Vyrn: You okay?
Leona: Mm... Yeah... Just bumped my head is all...
Choose: It's Cain you're worried about, huh?
Leona: It's n-not that! I-I'm a military officer, and I have a d-duty to complete!
Vyrn: Sigh... Think we should tell her, (Captain)?
Choose: Leona's an open book.
Choose: You saw through her too, huh?
Leona: Sigh... Sorry. I've never been good at lying.
Leona: When the ground started collapsing, I know that I pulled Cain up to safety.
Leona: But I want to confirm that he's all right with my own eyes. I guess that's what made me rush...
Vyrn: Well, Leona, we already know that you're super worried about Cain. You don't have to keep that from us.
Vyrn: Hmm? What now?
Leona: If Abel were here, I'm sure he'd handle this awful situation better than me.
Vyrn: Ah, right. Your fiance.
Leona: Mm-hm... I don't think he would've fallen into this hole at all.
Vyrn: Really? Sounds like a pretty crazy dude.
Leona: He was usually optimistic and perceptive. If something needed to be done, he would handle it immediately.
Leona: His kindness earned him unmatched trust from both his officers and superiors.
Leona: I used to watch as my own duties piled up before my eyes—I couldn't hold a candle to him.
Leona: (When we finished a job, he would always say, "Yeesh, I'm staaarving...")
Leona: (But he never once ate any of my cooking.)
Leona: (Wait... How long's it been since I stopped cooking?)
Vyrn: The heck was that? It made me bump my head…
Leona: Are you okay, Vyrn?
Leona: Monsters? Here?
Vyrn: This little guy made that big noise?
Vyrn: N-never mind! That clears things up!
Frightened by the larger monster, the smaller one dashes off into the depths of the cave.
The larger monster turns and rampages down the cavern halls after its prey.
Leona: Let's bypass this channel so they don't notice us. Escaping comes first.
Choose: Wait a minute.
Considering the direction they've been walking in the cave, (Captain) posits that they're currently underneath the forest.
The large monster's disruptive behavior might be disturbing the other monsters living in the forest on the surface, causing them to flee to the construction site.
It could also be the one carving the caverns, effectively reducing the stability of the island's bedrock.
As (Captain) finishes the theory, Leona's eyes grow wide.
Vyrn: You've got a point there. It was even bullying that smaller monster.
Leona: We have to get to the surface and provide support!
Choose: There's no time for that.
Leona: What? What do you mean?
Vyrn: I see... We've gotta take down that big fella before it wanders off to terrorize some other place.
Vyrn: Hmm... Since it made these caves, it's probably on the move already.
Leona: Which is to say, if we don't follow it now, we may lose it since it knows these halls better than us. Right?
Choose: That's highly likely.
Leona: It does stand to reason...
Choose: Right. Gotta settle this now.
Leona: Yes... I suppose we must...Continue 1
Leona: (That was impressive leadership. I don't think I could've made such a collected decision myself.)
Witnessing (Captain)'s composure and acumen, Leona feels embarrassed for the lapse in her own judgment.
Leona: (I couldn't see the connection between our mission and the monster...)
Leona: (The captain sees a much broader picture than I do...)
Leona: (Almost as if...)
Vyrn: All right! If we take this big creep down, we'll stop the monsters from leaving the forest and the construction can start back up! Two birds, one stone!
Vyrn: H-hey! Snap out of it! That giant monster just noticed us! Here it comes!
Home Cooking: Scene 3
(Captain) and Leona defeat the large monster and escape the tunnels. Thanks to this, construction on the island progresses more smoothly. (Captain)'s behavior during the underground ordeal reminds Leona of her fallen fiance, thus she offers to cook the crew a meal that she once promised to Abel.
Soon after felling the large monster, (Captain), Vyrn, and Leona find a crack of light peaking into the cave from overhead. They make a successful escape.
Vyrn: Pant... pant... We finally got outta there...
Leona: Yes... Ah. they're okay...
They turn to see Cain and Lyria dashing toward them in the distance.
Vyrn: Heh-heh! Looks like they're just fine!
Leona: Thankfully. The construction of the fortress should proceed smoothly now too. It's all thanks to you, (Captain).
Choose: Couldn't have done it without you, Leona.
Leona: Haha. (Captain), we were the ones who asked you for help.
Vyrn: Hahaha. Guess it's backwards day.
Choose: Glad to be of service.
Leona: Service is putting it lightly. You've gone above and beyond for Idelva.
Vyrn: It was no sweat! You guys've been great to us, so we wanted to return the favor!Continue 1
Leona: (I'm not so sure I could've handled all that alone...)
Leona: (I could really learn a thing or two from the captain...)
Feeling an overwhelming sense of deja vu, Leona looks on at (Captain).
Vyrn: You guys... I'm glad everything worked out and all... But...
Vyrn stops his grumbling for a moment before glancing at (Captain).
Leona: What's the matter?
Vyrn: I'm staaarving...
(Captain) and Vyrn look up at Leona, a mischievous glint in their eyes.
Leona catches herself smiling.
She can think only of returning to Luxurious and feeding the young captain and the little dragon some cooking of her own.
