Scenario:Redluck - Eat and Be Merry
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
Eat and Be Merry
During their travels, the crew hears of a group of bandits who settled on a ridge north of a small town. The same ridge was also home to a family, but when the crew arrives they are nowhere to be seen. This whole time, Redluck has not been acting himself, but before the crew could ask him about it, the bandits attack.
Vyrn: Hmm… There's not much going on here, is there?
Redluck: What? That's what's gonna make it all the more exciting.
Vyrn: Hey, is this really the right place?
Redluck: Of course!
(Captain) and the crew have arrived at a quiet town out in the country.
Here, Redluck is to hold a belly-battling tournament.
Redluck: This ain't my first rodeo. I'm an experienced belly-battler!
Vyrn: Yeah, but you're a monk, aren't you?
Lyria: Hee hee… And now you're a skyfarer, too!
Redluck: That's right, I'm a belly-battlin' skyfarer! Oh, and I guess I'm a monk, too.
Vyrn: Hey! What kinda monk "guesses" he's a monk "too"?
The town has little in the way of entertainment, so the residents welcome Redluck's proposal with interest.
At the contest venue, a large number of people have gathered, and excitement is running high.
Redluck: …OM NOM NOM NOM NOM!
Contestant: L-look at the way he eats! It's no good, I'm done for…
Redluck: Bahahahaha! Bring me another plate!
Commentator: Aaaand Redluck has overwhelmed his opponent to claim victory!
Redluck: All right, who's up next?
Vyrn: Man, I still can't believe how much you can put away. And—
Redluck: Bahahahaha! No takers? I'll even agree to a handicap match.
Redluck: Hey, I'm not full yet, it's time for the next round! Anybody?
Vyrn: Ugh… It's like he's a different person when he's doing this belly-battle thing.
Vyrn: What's wrong?
Lyria: Um, Redluck is acting a little strange..
Vyrn: Hm? I guess he does seem kinda restless.
Lyria: I wonder what's wrong. It's like he's searching for someone…
Townsperson: Hey, Mr. Redluck!
Townsperson: That was amazing! I've never seen a belly-battle before, but it was so exciting!
Redluck: Thanks! You should join in next time.
Redluck: By the way, there's something I wanted to ask.
Redluck: There used to be a mother living with her child on the ridge north of the town…
Townsperson: Huh? Oh, well…
At Redluck's words, the man's face falls.
Townsperson: Actually, bandits have recently settled in that area.
Townsperson: We haven't heard anything from the family there since the bandits showed up.
Vyrn: Hey, big man!
Lyria: I'm sorry, we overheard your conversation.
Redluck: Oh, it's you two…
Vyrn: What's wrong? We heard you say something about bandits.
Townsperson: Oh, let me explain…
(Captain) and the others listen to the story about the bandits on the ridge.
Vyrn: I see… We should do something to help, (Captain).
Lyria: Yeah, we should go and see if they're OK.
Lyria: Oh no…
The crew arrives at the house, only to find it has been ransacked by the bandits.
Vyrn: How awful… I don't see the family anywhere.
Ever since they left the town, Redluck has kept silent, wearing a grim expression.
Lyria: Um, Redluck, do you know the people living here?
Lyria: Oh, sorry. I didn't mean to pry. You don't have to answer if you don't want to.
Lyria: But you've been lost in thought for a while now, and I was worried.
Lyria: At the very least, let us help you!
Redluck: Right, I'm sorry. We're friends. You deserve to know.
Just as Redluck begins to explain, a loud noise reverberates outside.
Vyrn: Whoa! What was that!
Thief 1: Hey, what's this? There are still people left?
Thief 2: Let's get 'em tied up and thrown in with the rest!
Redluck: Hah! So you think you can take us? Let's go, (Captain)!
Eat and Be Merry: Scene 2
The crew tries to question the bandits about the whereabouts of the family, the bandits call Redluck, Daiza. Redluck opens up to the crew about his poor upbringing and how this family saved his life. Fired up, the crew storms the bandit’s hideout to save the family.
Redluck: Hey, you're still conscious, right?
Thief 1: Urgh…
Having beaten the thieves into submission, Redluck restrains one of their number and interrogates him.
Redluck: Where did you take the folks who lived here?
Thief 1: G-Guh…
Redluck: Hurry up and answer me! My patience is wearing thin!
Thief 1: Well, uh… W-Wait… Huh?
Glancing up at Redluck from the ground, the thieves eyes widen in surprise.
Thief 1: Y-You're not… Daiza?!
Lyria: Huh? What's a Daiza?
Thief 1: Quick, now!
Thief slide out
Vyrn: Hey! He's getting away!
Taking advantage of Redluck's hesitation, the thief slips out of his grip and escapes in the blink of an eye.
Redluck: …Hmph. Pathetic.
Redluck: Sorry about that. Daiza is my name.
Vyrn: Huh? I thought you were called Redluck?
Redluck: That's the name I go by now. You've noticed I wear red all the time, right?
With a pained expression on his face, Redluck begins to talk about his past.
Redluck: When I was a kid I lived in poverty. Never had enough food, I was always so hungry.
Redluck: I did anything I could just to stay alive. Come to think of it, I was just like that kid we rescued when you and I first met.
Vyrn: That boy said those thugs had been using him to run errands and stuff, didn't he?
Redluck: Yeah. Somehow I managed to survive and grow up doing that kind of stuff. I was even a thief myself for a while.
Redluck: I guess that guy knew me from back then… Not that I remember him.
Lyria: Goodness… It sounds like you've been through a lot.
Redluck: You could say that… But the only reason I'm here to tell the tale is because of the people who lived up here…
Redluck tells the story of a mother and child who saved him when he collapsed outside their home with near fatal injuries.
Never asking who he was or where he came from, this humble family nursed Redluck back to health.
Redluck: The meals they lovingly cooked for me were the best I'd ever tasted. For the first time, I was really able to enjoy my food.
Vyrn: Wow! And now you enjoy it all the time, like in the belly battle.
Redluck: That's right… I enjoy eating, and people enjoy watching the contest. Everybody wins.
Redluck: The old me died that day, and I was reborn.
Redluck: The woman who lived here's the one who suggested I follow the teachings of Zeyen.
Lyria: Ah! They say "Our pasts will light the way to a happier future," right?
Redluck: That's right. That's how I came to be as I am now.
Vyrn: Hmm… There's more to you than meets the eye…
Vyrn: OK, (Captain), let's get after those thieves and save that family!
(Captain) and the crew chase after the thieves and follow them to their hideout.
Thief Big Enchilada: Huh? Who the heck are you guys?
Redluck: I won't be holding back! Prepare yourselves!
Eat and Be Merry: Scene 3

(Captain) and the others successfully rescue the people held prisoner in the hideout.
???: Thank you so much! You saved us!
???: Daddy, can we really go now?
???: Yes, we're safe. These people—
???: Huh? I-Is that you?
Redluck: Hey there. It's been a while. You've gotten so big.
Lyria: Is this the child you were telling us about before all grown up?
Redluck: That's right. He saved my life. Of course, we were only little tykes back then.
Vyrn: Whaaat? How long ago did all that happen?
Redluck: Must be 15 years now. Looks like you grew up to be a fine man… Is this your daughter?
Redluck's Savior: Yes, that's right. I never thought I'd see you again!
Redluck's Savior: What have you been doing all these years?
Redluck and his savior spend some time catching up.
Redluck's Savior: Wow, a belly-battle? Sounds like fun. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to watch it…
Redluck: Really? In that case we'll just have to hold another!
Vyrn: Are you serious? You ate so much at the last one, you want to do that again?
Commentator: And Redluck is storming ahead, chomping the chow with such know-how… no one can touch him now!
Redluck: Ha ha ha! Anyone's welcome to try! Bring it on!
Girl: Whoa, that guy's amazing!
Redluck: Right? I'm so strong and cool, aren't I?
After watching the second belly-battle, the crew continue their journey.
Lyria: Hee hee. So Redluck, will you be donating this prize money to an orphanage, too?
Redluck: Oh darn, looks like my secret's out, huh?
Vyrn: Heh heh. I knew you weren't any normal monk!
Lyria: It's not just in the way you compete in the belly-battle, but also how you spend your winnings.
Lyria: You're always doing your best to keep the people around you smiling.
Redluck: Heh, say what you like.
Redluck: But my true purpose goes beyond our current time and place.
Redluck: I want to make the world a place where no one ever has to starve.
Lyria: That sounds wonderful!
Vyrn: Yeah, it's a great dream!
Redluck: Indeed. And above all…
Redluck: I want to see a tomorrow where plenty of people can eat their fill and laugh merrily!
Redluck's joyous laughter rings out across the clear blue skies.
His dream has become a part of the future (Captain) and the crew are all striving to create.
