From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
Questions in the Cornfield
The crew encounters a Harvin girl known as Melissabelle in the forest, who possesses the power to manipulate her golden locks at will. Seeking information on those who want the rumored power of her radiant hair for themselves, she joins (Captain)'s crew.
After finishing a request, the crew heads through a sun-dappled forest path.
???: Ughh... Huff...
Vyrn: Hm? Did anyone else hear something just now?
Lyria: There's something over there! Is that... a hammock?
Lyria points up. Suspended between the trees is something that resembles a hammock.
Vyrn: Is that where that voice came from? I'm going up there to take a look!
Vyrn: Hey! Is someone up here?
Vyrn peeks inside the hammock and finds a Harvin girl.
Vyrn: A-are you okay? What are you doin' up here?
???: I'm so...
???: I'm so... hungry...
Vyrn: Hang in there! Uh, I mean... You're already in a hammock, but you know what I mean!
The girl collapses, and the hammock begins falling from the trees.
Lyria: Oh no! We have to catch her!
The girl plummets from the collapsing hammock, but (Captain) catches her at the last second.
Vyrn: Whew! Had me on pins and needles there!
Lyria: Huh? I thought that was a hammock up there, but...
When the crew takes a closer look at the hammock's fallen fiber strands, they realize they all flow out of the girl's head.
Lyria: Is this... hair?
Vyrn: Holy cow, it is! And it's super long!
Vyrn: Are you okay? She said she was starvin', (Captain). Got anything for her to eat?
(Captain) gives a piece of fruit to the girl.
???: Hngh... H-huh?
Lyria: Are you all right?
???: Who are you? And... why are you holding me?
Vyrn: Looks like she's come to.
After scanning her surroundings, the girl makes an attempt to stand up.
???: Okay then... Huh?
???: Oof... I can't move...
Vyrn: Don't push yourself! You collapsed earlier after all.
???: Ugh... You're right... Who are you guys anyway?
Vyrn: We're skyfarers! We just happened to see you up in the trees on our way back to town.
???: T-then does that mean you... saved me?
Lyria: Yes! I'm so relieved to see you're okay after that fall. Does anything hurt?
???: I'm fine, thanks... I've caused you a lot of trouble though.
Lyria: Not at all! We're just glad you're okay!
Vyrn: Where do you live? We can bring you back home while you're recovering!
???: Huh? W-well um...
???: I-if you insist...
Cradled in (Captain)'s arms, the girl humbly accepts the offer.
The crew delivers her to a cabin nestled deep within the mountains.
Her name is Melissabelle, she says, and she raises corn in the nearby fields.
Melissabelle: If you want corn, I've got plenty. Eat as much as you'd like!
Vyrn: Don't mind if I do!
The crew starts to eat from a towering pile of corn on the cob, and Melissabelle follows suit.
Melissabelle: Whew... I'm feeling like my old self again. Back to the land of the living...
After finishing an ear of corn, Melissabelle's hair begins to shimmer with an even greater intensity.
Lyria: Oh my gosh, your hair is so shiny! It's like some kind of sparkling golden treasure!
Vyrn: What's up with that, anyway? You were using it to hang from the trees earlier!
Melissabelle: Oh... Magical energies reside within my hair. I can use that magic to control it. To some degree, anyway.
Vyrn: Wow! That sounds like it could comb in handy!
Melissabelle: Heheh... I'm glad you were the ones that saved me.
Melissabelle: I was worried you might be after my hair, so I've been a little on edge.
Melissabelle: But I can see now that you're very kind and wonderful people. I'm sorry for doubting you.
Vyrn: No worries! Did something happen earlier? Why were you starvin' to the point of collapse?
Melissabelle: It seems I fell asleep during my trip to the forest...
Melissabelle: When I woke up, I was so hungry I could barely move. I really blew it this time...
Vyrn: You were just sleeping? Talk about weird.
Lyria: You mentioned people were after your hair. Are you being targeted?
Lyria: Oh no! Monsters are running amok in the cornfields!
Lyria: It's too dangerous to fight them by yourself!
The crew chases after Melissabelle toward the cornfields.
Melissabelle: How dare you!
As if reflecting her rage, Melissabelle's hair forms into a scythe to strike back at the rampaging monsters.
Melissabelle's fearsome hair follicles send the monsters flying in all directions.
Vyrn: Talk about hair-raising! That was incredible, Melissabelle! We didn't even need to raise a finger!
Melissabelle: Augh... I'm drained...
Lyria: What's wrong?
Melissabelle suddenly collapses, sending (Captain) and company into a panic.
Melissabelle: I'm starving...
The crew gives Melissabelle some of the leftover corn, and her energy soon returns.
Melissabelle: Huh? Oh... I did it again.
Vyrn: Where's your crazy appetite comin' from? Never seen anyone collapse over and over from hunger like that. Are you sick?
Melissabelle: Actually... this hair of mine sucks up all the nutrients from whatever food I eat, so I'm pretty much always hungry.
Melissabelle: And if I use my hair like I did before, it can drain me in an instant.
Lyria: Gasp! So that's what happened!
Vyrn: Sounds rough...
Melissabelle: I need all that corn to recover my stamina, but I got carried away trying to protect it... Now look at me.
Melissabelle: I still can't get over how kind you all are. You barely know me, but you've gone so far out of your way to help me.
Lyria: You're a person in need! Anyone would do the same!
Melissabelle: Plenty of people think they'd help someone like me, but not many act on it. You're amazing. All of you.
Melissabelle: Hey, you said you were skyfarers, right?
Vyrn: In the flesh!
Melissabelle: I have a request. Would it... be okay if I joined your crew?
Vyrn: Huh? Listen, we can tell you're strong after that little display earlier, but... why?
Melissabelle: I'm gathering information on a certain group of people, but I can't do much on my own.
Melissabelle: Having to stay out of sight makes it difficult to find what I'm looking for.
Melissabelle: If I join your crew, I'll be able to catch rumors and gather info from across the skies.
Vyrn: So that's what you're thinking. Sounds good to me! You're way tougher than you look! That's for sure!
Melissabelle: Thank you. I have a feeling that joining your crew will put my goal within reach.
Lyria: Your goal?
Melissabelle: Yeah. I'm going to find them... and shave their heads.
Vyrn: Shave their heads? This just got weird!
Melissabelle: I want to deliver payback to those who once forcefully took the hair from my head.
Vyrn: You mentioned some people who were after your hair. Are these the guys you were talkin' about?
Melissabelle: Yeah. My hair is said to have the power to bring happiness and heal incurable disease.
Melissabelle: To be perfectly honest, I'm not so sure how it works myself. But that's what the old stories say.
Melissabelle: They say that every once in a blue moon, a child with hair like mine is born into my clan. Apparently I have ancestors who had long hair just like me.
Melissabelle: But as for what the powers of my hair are, or why my hair keeps growing... I couldn't really tell you.
Melissabelle: Few records of my clan's ancient past exist at all, let alone anything confirming the details.
Lyria: After seeing your hair sparkle earlier, I'm definitely willing to believe it has special powers!
Melissabelle: Yeah. But one day some grown-ups I'd never seen before suddenly locked me up and cut my hair off.
Melissabelle: They blindfolded me and tied me up. The only thing I could hear was the sound of the clippers cutting away...
Lyria: That's horrible!
Melissabelle: My hair grows back fast, but... that didn't make the fear and shame I felt any less real...
Melissabelle: That's why I want to find them and make them feel the same way I did. I want them to experience the pain they've inflicted on others.
Vyrn: So that's the story. Guess that explains why you want to shave their heads...
Choose: You better not do that to us!
Melissabelle: Of course! I wouldn't think of hurting others just for a prank.
Melissabelle: I would never do something so terrible to those who did nothing to deserve it.
Choose: Can you grow hair too?
Melissabelle: Yes, I can.
Vyrn: What kind of question is that?Continue 1
