Scenario:Nakoruru - Protectors of Nature
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
Protectors of Nature
The shrine maidens Nakoruru and Rimururu join (Captain)'s crew on their journey. A comment from Rimururu on the quality of Nakoruru's culinary skills piques Lyria's curiosity.
(Captain) and Nakoruru continue their quest to defeat Shiro Amakusa, wellspring of evil.
Along the way, the crew also adds Nakoruru's little sister and fellow shrine maiden Rimururu to its ranks.
The closer they get to Amakusa, the thicker the poisonous miasma becomes. Strangely enough, however, this only causes their conversation to grow even friendlier.
Rimururu: Hey, Lyria! Can I ask you about something Sis mentioned earlier?
Rimururu: She said you can hear the voices of nature too. Is that true?
Lyria: No, it's nothing like that. I just... get a sense of what nature's saying. That's all.
Rimururu: Hmm... If you say so. I thought you were a friend of us shrine maidens, so it bums me out to hear that.
Lyria: I feel the same way you do. It makes me so sad to see nature destroyed... We have to hurry!
Nakoruru: Hee hee... You're such a kind soul, Lyria. When you say things like that, we can't help but see you as a shrine maiden.
Lyria: Heh heh... You really think so?
Lyria: Oh, that's right! What does the voice of nature sound like? I've been super curious about it this whole time.
Nakoruru: It's far more indistinct than human speech, but we can clearly make out emotions such as love, hate, sadness, and fear...
Nakoruru: We rely on those voices to defeat those who would dare defile the natural world.
Nakoruru: Amakusa brought great suffering to nature long ago. I had no choice but to defeat him.
The expression on Nakoruru's face is one of dedication suffused with a profound calm... and an equally profound melancholy.
It lingers on her face for only a moment, but Rimururu notices instantly.
Rimururu: Amakusa is the worst! He's screwing up Mother Nature and putting you in harm's way, Sis! And he won't even stay dead! He sucks and I hate him!
Nakoruru: Hee hee... Thank you, Rimururu. But this is our duty as shrine maidens.
Nakoruru flashes a gallant smile, but this only causes Rimururu more worry.
Rimururu: I'm gonna help too, Sis! You can't stop me! I'm not a kid anymore!
Nakoruru smiles, gently tousling Rimururu's hair.
Lyria can't help but smile seeing this either.
Lyria: Hee hee, you really love your sister, don't you, Rimururu?
Rimururu: Yup! She's the best! I wanna be just like her when I grow up!
Rimururu: She's strong, and pretty, and kind! And she can cook too!
Lyria: Oh my gosh! Really?
Rimururu: Better believe it! Her cooking's super delicious! The rataskep she makes for me in the morning is my favorite!
Lyria: Rataskep? I don't think I know what that is... Aren't you curious to find out, (Captain)?
Choose: Can you make some for us tomorrow?
Lyria: That's a wonderful idea! Don't you think so, Nakoruru?
Nakoruru: Of course. I'll have to make sure our ingredients are in order tomorrow morning.
Choose: What are the ingredients exactly?
Lyria: Um, Nakoruru? Does rataskep have anything... strange in it?
Nakoruru: Hee hee. No need to worry. It's very good for you and full of mountain vegetables.Continue 1
Rimururu: Hey, Sis! Let's ask the forest where we can find the vegetables we need!
Nakoruru and Rimururu clear their thoughts and engage in conversation with Mother Nature.
Rimururu: Sis! The forest says we can find delicious vegetables over there!
Nakoruru: Wait, Rimururu. It's not safe to go by yourself.
Lyria: Whew... You were able to figure all that out just by concentrating? Shrine maidens really are incredible...
The crew catches a glimpse of the bond shared between these two shrine maidens... and the burden they both shoulder.
(Captain) and Lyria's desire to protect and help them only grows deeper and more resolute.
