Scenario:Noa - On Waves of Grace
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
On Waves of Grace
(Captain) and the crew continue their voyage aboard the Grandcypher. One day, the airship suddenly becomes unresponsive, and makes an emergency landing on a nearby island. The shipwright primal beast Noa inspects the condition of the Grandcypher and reports that although it cannot fly in its present state, there is still hope. The crew head for the isle of Golonzo in the hopes of finding a way to repair the grounded Grandcypher.
With (Captain) and the crew on board, the Grandcypher cuts a path through the clear blue skies.
While everyone is on a break, Noa sits alone on the deck, his brows thoroughly furrowed.
Noa: So this is it. The time has finally come…
Lyria: Huh? You've got a grim look on your face, is something bothering you?
Noa: No… Thanks for asking, Lyria. It's just something that can't be helped. Something unavoidable.
Lyria: Oh? What is it?
Rackam: We're in trouble! Is there an island nearby!
Lyria: Wh-what's happened? What's the rush…
Rackam: It's the Grandcypher… We're losing altitude, fast!
Lyria: Are you sure!
Rackam: Hurry! Prepare for emergency landing!
The Grandcypher, with (Captain) and the others on board, makes an emergency landing on a nearby island.
After landing, no matter what Rackam tries, the Grandcypher won't move at all.
Rackam: I give up… I can't get so much of a murmur out of the old girl…
Vyrn: Hey, what's going on! Has the Grandcypher broken down?
Eugen: No, there's nothing wrong with the ship as far as I can see.
Io: Hmm… So it's not broken down, it just won't fly. Is that what you're saying?
Katalina: What could it be? Noa, what do you think?
Noa: Hmm… It seems the Grandcypher won't be taking off for the time being…
Noa: But that doesn't mean the situation is completely hopeless. Everything depends on you guys.
Rosetta: Heehee… Well that goes without saying, doesn't it?
Rackam: Sure. Did you think we were going to just abandon the Grandcypher?
Noa: Heehee… No, the thought didn't cross my mind for even a second.
Noa: Although… Sometimes I'd like to hear you say that you were abandoning it.
Noa: Such a foolish, selfish thing to think, please forgive me.
Eugen: Haha! Don't worry, we'll take that as a compliment.
Katalina: And? What can we do to get the Grandcypher moving again?
Noa: Oh… Well, first we should head to Golonzo.
Noa: They should have what we need there…
Vyrn: Of course! That island's famous as a place to bring ships in for repair!
Katalina: Indeed… First let's head for the town that we saw from the air. I'm sure there'll be an airship there that we can hitch a ride on.
(Captain) and the crew catch a ride in the town aboard an airship that's headed straight for Golonzo.
Throughout the trip however, Noa's stern expression persists.
On Waves of Grace: Scene 2
(Captain) and the crew arrive on Golonzo and are about to set about hiring some workers to repair the ship, when Noa tells the crew that they won't be needing any. The crew are led by Noa to an old dock where they encounter the primal beast Mithra once more. According to Noa, the Grandcypher, having served its original purpose, is designed to gradually lose power and sink to the depths. A new covenant is needed with its passengers in order to restore it. To demonstrate their determination, the crew face off against the primal beast Mithra.
Riding aboard another crew's airship, (Captain) and the crew arrive on Golonzo.
Shipwright: What! Don't tell me you guys have crashed your ship again? You're always getting into scrapes, ruining my good work…
Rackam: That's enough from you! Sorry to ask you this, but do you have any spare some workers who could lend us a hand?
Noa: That won't be necessary, Rackam.
Rackam: Huh? What do you mean?
The thing is, we need some guys to help with getting our ship repaired…
The thing is, we need some guys to help with getting our ship repaired…
Noa: It's OK, just trust me on this one. I want you to come with me.
And with those words, Noa sets off my himself into the town on Golonzo.
Rackam: Hey! Where're you going?
Eugen: Humph… This fella's gonna have to explain himself at some point…
Noa guides them to an old dock.
Vyrn: Huh? Why're we here? What's so special 'bout this place?
Lyria: I can sense… the presence of a primal beast here!
Mithra: (…Rumble whirr whirr…)
Noa: Greetings. It's been a while, hasn't it? We are here today to avail ourselves of your power.
Lyria: Huh? It seems like it's the quiet type, not one to go rampaging…
Noa: You hit the nail on the head there… We'd be in trouble if it were otherwise.
Rackam: Listen, Noa, could you just tell us what it is you have in mind?
Noa: Why, the restoration of the Grandcypher of course.
Vyrn: But without workers to help us, how are we going to get the ship repaired?
Noa: I'm afraid there wouldn't be any point in trying to repair the ship any more.
Noa: The Grandcypher has run out of power, so repairing it would be pointless.
Rackam: What are you saying!
Noa: The Grandcypher no longer has any of the power it uses to levitate remaining within itself.
Noa: Even I can't do anything about that. That's because the ship isn't technically broken.
Noa: You see, the Grandcypher was originally built by the Astrals in order to invade this world.
Noa: Having served its purpose, the airship was designed to sink to the depths once its remaining power was used up.
Lyria: I never realized…
Rackam: Now hold on just a minute! You're saying that the Grandcypher is…
Noa: Yes. That's why I brought you here.
Noa: No matter what repairs are performed, the Grandcypher cannot return to the skies…
Noa: That's why I need all of you to help reincarnate the Grandcypher.
Rackam: What does that mean, exactly?
Noa: You're going to imbue the Grandcypher with a new mission. You who now fly aboard her.
Noa: And when the primal beast Mithra grants you that wish…
Noa: Mithra's absolute power will give the Grandcypher new energy, which will last until the mission you give the ship is complete.
Rackam: I see… So you're saying we make a plea to Mithra here? And then the Grandcypher will fly again?
Noa: Yes. And you will need to promise Mithra that you will never abandon that mission.
Rackam: Huh. So it's as easy as that. How about it, (Captain)?
Vyrn: Too right! That sounds just like our line of work.
Noa: Hehe… I knew you guys would say that.
Noa: Well then, now is the time for you to show your determination to face the skies!
On Waves of Grace: Scene 3
By overcoming the primal beast Mithra, (Captain) and the crew have pledged to reach the sky's edge, no matter what it takes. Noa gives the reborn Grandcypher his shipwright's blessing and, as he extends a hand toward the endless azure sky, the outline of the Grandcypher appears and rushes toward (Captain) and the crew, pulsing with energy.
Mithra: (Rumble grind grind…)
Noa: Now, your covenant with Mithra…
Rackam: Oh yes, the covenant… I'd almost forgotten. We promise to get to the sky's edge, whatever it takes. Right, (Captain)?
Choose: Aboard the Grandcypher.
Choose: All together.
Mithra: (Rumble whirr whirr…)
Io: So… this thing will enable the Grandcypher to fly again?
Noa: Mithra will certainly uphold its side of the bargain. Now, it's my turn.
Noa: I, the shipwright primal beast, do hereby bless the reborn Grandcypher, as it embarks on its new voyage.
Noa: Heehee… Look, up there.
(Captain) and the crew look up to the skies, and, sure enough, the Grandcypher is floating above them.
Vyrn: Wha! It's the Grandcypher…
Noa: Right, the necessary ceremonies are complete. The Grandcypher is now good to go.
Noa: The covenant of your absolute intent with the blessing of a shipwright primal beast has given it new life.
Noa: I'm sure?no, I'm absolutely certain that the Grandcypher will guide you to the sky's edge.
Noa: Heehee… I do hereby guarantee that it will do so.
With those words, Noa laughs contentedly.
Pulsating with its newly replenished energy, the Grandcypher carries on cutting its steady course across the skies.
