Scenario:Rita - My Own Choice
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
My Own Choice
In a remote village, the crew hears a story about a knight with an odd hairstyle. Rita asks for more details and discovers it is the knight she is searching for: Kaisar. Rita, learning he is in some ruins left from the War, heads there immediately, only to find him being attacked by monsters.
Days have passed since Rita, the necromancer searching for the knight with hammer-shaped hair, joined the crew.
During their journey, the company stop on an island to replenish their supplies.
Rita: So what are you going to buy?
Villager 1: Sigh... That knight with the awful hairstyle still hasn't come back...
Villager 2: I know... I wonder if monsters did him in...
Villager 1: Sigh... I wonder what business he had at the ruins of the War.
Villager 2: I think he said he was looking for... a girl named Rita...
Vyrn: Hey! He just said Rita!
Lyria: I heard it too! And they mentioned an awful hairstyle...
Rita dashes off alone towards the villagers.
Vyrn: H-hey! Wait up!
Rita: Excuse me. Can you tell me more about that man?
Villager 1: Huh? And you are?
Rita: We're just travelers and skyfarers. More to the point, what do you know about that man?
The men cave in to Rita's forceful request and begin talking.
Villager 1: About... a few days ago, a knight with a very unusual hairstyle came into our village.
Villager 1: He wanted one of us to guide him to the ruins of the War...
Rita: The ruins of the War?
Villager 1: Yeah. Only, the ruins of the War are full of monsters and zombies, so we couldn't take him.
Villager 1: Sigh... So he asked us to just point him in the right direction. Then he left all by himself.
Rita: I see... And did the knight say anything else?
Rita: His name or...
Villager 2: He told us to call him Kaisar.
Rita: I finally... found you.
At the sound of the knight's name, Rita smiles very faintly and utters words of various emotions.
Amira is a crew member
Lyria: Huh? Kaisar? Wasn't he looking for Amira...
Vyrn: And wasn't he supposed to be working as a Sky Knight for some other country?
Vyrn: It doesn't add up that he'd be around here.
Lyria: Huh... Now that you mention it...
Rita: Something wrong?
Lyria: Um, nothing.
Lyria: What did you mean when you said he still hasn't come back?
Villager 1: Right... Since he left, we haven't seen him around these parts at all.
Rita: Where are... the ruins of the War? Tell me.
Villager 1: Huh? You want to know? They're...
Rita's subtle force gains the crew the location of the ruins.
Rita: Thank you.
Rita thanks the villagers and just as quickly rushes to the location they specify.
Vyrn: Hey! I said wait!
Lyria: Rita, hold on!
Then the others race after Rita.
???: Agh! Why are there so many monsters...
A man fights the monsters with all of his strength and begins to tire.
Noticing his weakening, the monsters charge at him.
One monster dodges his blade and strikes.
The monster's claws are the last blow the man can take before he falls to the ground.
???: I-I... can't die here...
???: I have to find Rita... I promised...
Rita's Voice: Kaisar!
Her voice reaches him just as suddenly as do her fists make contact with the surrounding monsters.
Kaisar: W-was that...
Rita: You're alive... Thank goodness...
Kaisar: R-Rita! Why are you...
Rita: Now's not the time.
Rita: Kaisar, stay there and rest.
Rita: After we've beaten these monsters, I'll tend to your wounds.
My Own Choice: Scene 2
Kaisar protects Rita from an attacking monster, which the crew defeats. As everyone prepares to head back to the village, Kaisar's left arm swells from poison he incurred during the attack, and he becomes unable to move. Rita decides to make an antidote on the spot and leaves in search of ingredients.
Rita defeats all of the surrounding monsters.
Rita then pulls medicine from her bag and tends to Kaisar's wounds.
Rita: This is just a temporary treatment. There isn't much else we can do for now.
Kaisar: Okay... Thanks.
Rita: What? Why are you staring?
Kaisar: It's been so long since you've taken care of me.
Rita: Yes it has. You're the one who decided to jump onto that monster and leave me.
Kaisar: I-I'm sorry...
Rita: You imbecile. Do you know how much I worried?
Kaisar: I really am sorry...
Rita: What's wrong?
Kaisar: I thought I—
A monster comes charging out from a thicket straight for Rita.
Rita! Look out!
Rita! Look out!
Rita is not in a position to react quickly enough.
Kaisar uses his own body as a shield to protect Rita from the monster's attack.
The monster tears into Kaisar's left arm.
Each time it rips further into his flesh, his screams intensify.
Rita attempts to slay the monster locked on Kaisar's arm.
The monster defiantly tightens its bite on Kaisar.
Rita: Take this!
The attack fired by Rita annihilates the monster.
Lyria: Pant... Pant... Rita! We found you!
Vyrn: We told you not to run off by yourself!
Rita: (Captain)? Everyone...
Rita: I'll thank you later. First I need to help Kaisar.
Rita: Sorry to ask, but be on the lookout for monsters.
Lyria: Huh? Oh, okay!
The crew takes Rita's orders and defends them.
Rita goes back to quickly taking care of Kaisar's wounds.
Once everything calms down, Rita stands and bows her head to everyone.
Rita: Thank you. All of you saved us.
Lyria: If only we had gotten here sooner... We could have... I'm sorry...
The crew takes a look at Kaisar who is in pain from being so badly beaten and bitten.
Rita: You didn't do anything to apologize for.
Rita: I need to say I'm sorry. You tried to stop me from running off alone and I didn't let you...
Lyria: You had your reasons. You've been looking so long for him and you knew he was close by.
Rita: Thank you, Lyria.
Kaisar: I would also like to thank you. I owe you all my life. Thank you so much.
Amira is a crew member
Kaisar: So Amira was with you all...
Vyrn: What! So it was you!
Rita: Huh? You've met Kaisar before?
The crew tells the confused Rita how they met Kaisar.
Rita: Really... So that's how you met...
Vyrn: So, Kaisar, why are you here?
Vyrn: Weren't you supposed to be working for another country as a Sky Knight?
Kaisar: That... Because of what happened with Amira, that didn't go through as planned.
Vyrn: So you're like jobless?
Kaisar: Gulp... Well, you could say that.
Kaisar: Enough about me. Rita, how do you know the crew?
Kaisar: You seem to really trust them...
Amira not in crew
Kaisar: Rita, who are these people?
Rita: This is the crew I'm traveling with at the moment.
Kaisar: Crew?Continue 2
Rita explains the events that led to meeting the crew to Kaisar.
Kaisar: I see... You traveled with them to find me...
Kaisar: My apologies... It could not have been an easy task to find me.
As Kaisar speaks, he bows his head towards the crew with deep respect.
Lyria: Don't worry about it. Helping people in need is something you're supposed to do.
Kaisar: Even so, I need to do something to show my appreciation...
Vyrn: If nobody minds, can we save the chitchat for later? This place gives me the creeps. Let's get out of here.
Rita: Good idea.
Kaisar: That's probably for the best. Let's discuss things again later.
Kaisar attempts to stand, but no sooner is he up on his feet than he falls back down to the ground.
Vyrn: Whoa! Whoa! You okay?
Kaisar: I... I just got a little... dizzy..
Vyrn: Okay... If that's all it wa—Dude! You look awful!
Kaisar: Pant... Pant... N-no, I'm... fine... Trust... me...
Kaisar attempts to stand again but fails.
Rita: Kaisar... Let me see your wounds again.
Unable to say no, Kaisar shows Rita his wounds.
Rita: Your arm... It wasn't this swollen when I first looked at it...
Unlike earlier, Kaisar's arm is extremely swollen.
The skin has turned a deep shade of violet and the blood around the wound is turning an eerie black.
Rita: He's showing signs of a fever... Was he poisoned? That monster must have...
Vyrn: What! Poisoned?
Lyria: W-we need to get back to the village quickly! They'll have something...
Rita: That the poison is working so quickly must mean it's extremely powerful...
Vyrn: Rita! Snap out of it! We need to move!
Rita: No... The poison is moving too quickly through his body. We won't make it in time.
Vyrn: What! Then what do we do!
Rita: I'll have to make an antidote here and now...
Lyria: You can do that?
Rita: I may not look it, but I am a doctor. I have the knowledge needed.
Rita: I'll need all of you to help me, all right?
Vyrn: Of course! Just say the word!
Rita: Thank you. First I'll need you to look after Kaisar.
Choose: What do you need?
Rita: Look after Kaisar for a moment.Continue 3
Lyria: By look after, what exactly do you mean...
Rita: Make sure that he's warm. Don't let him get too cold.
Rita: And if monsters come, I'll need you to take care of them.
Vyrn: Okay! Got it!
Lyria: All right!
The rest of the crew nods in agreement and with that Rita runs off.
Vyrn: Hey! Where ya going! I thought she's gonna make the antidote...
Rita: Exactly! I need to go get the ingredients.
Rita: Make sure Kaisar is okay.
Rita: Kaisar... I won't let you die.
Rita: I still need to return the favor you did me.
Rita: I will help you get better.
Rita's resolve strengthens and her search for the ingredients begins.
My Own Choice: Scene 3
Rita creates an antidote for Kaisar, but the poisoned arm cannot be saved. Rita decides to amputate it—to which Kaisar agrees. Afterwards, the crew agrees to help Kaisar find a prosthetic arm so that his dream of becoming a knight can be realized.
Rita searches for ingredients needed to make an antidote in order to save Kaisar.
Rita: I've got everything I need. Now I just need to mix these...
Rita: I need to work quickly and then get him to drink the solution...
Rita sits and with a fierce look in her eyes begins concocting her antidote.
Rita: Thanks for waiting.
Lyria: Rita! Did it come out okay?
Rita: Without a hitch.
Rita speaks to the crew as she moves closer to Kaisar.
Rita: Kaisar, can you drink the antidote?
Kaisar drinks the liquid.
Rita: You should rest. We need you to get better before we can move.
Kaisar: B-but there's no way the crew could stay here...
Rita: We have to put your health above our own needs.
Kaisar: B-but... What if the monsters come back?
Rita: Don't worry. While you rest, we'll keep an eye out. We can do that much.
Vyrn: Yeah! Stop worrying!
Kaisar: Apologies... I will do as you say...
Kaisar nods his head in agreement with everyone and lays his head on the ground.
Lyria: Rita... Kaisar will get better, right?
Rita: Yes... Sure he will.
Rita's worried expression betrays her words.
Kaisar: Ah... Agh!
Lyria: Huh? Has Kaisar woken up?
Kaisar: Agh... Aghhh...
Kaisar grasps his left arm and lets out cries of pain.
Vyrn: What's going on! I thought the antidote was working!
Rita: It is. His symptoms are coming to a halt.
Vyrn: Then why's he screaming!
Rita: This must be the worst case scenario...
Lyria: Worst case... What does that mean!
Rita ignores the panicking crew members, and she decides to do what must be done.
Kaisar: Agh! Aaghhh! R-Rita... My arm...
Rita: Calm down.
Rita: The poison flowing through your body is being disposed of by my antidote, but your left arm is another story.
Rita: The poison from the monster has completely decimated that arm. There isn't anything we can do for it.
Rita: If we leave it attached to you... then...
Rita: There is only one option remaining... We have to cut it off.
Rita stares fiercely at Kaisar.
Vyrn: What! There's nothing else we can do?
Rita: No... If there was, I would have already done it.
As Rita speaks, she tightens her fist so hard that blood actually begins spilling from it.
Vyrn: I'm sorry... I know... that you're doing everything you can for him...
Rita: Kaisar... I'm going to rend your arm. Hate me if you must.
Rita looks Kaisar straight in the eyes as she utters those words.
Kaisar responds by using his right arm to softly stroke Rita's head.
Kaisar: Who could hate you?
Rita: But... I cost you your dream...
Kaisar: No you didn't. I wanted to protect you.
Kaisar: That's why I used my body to guard you from that monster.
Kaisar: That I lose my arm is the result of my own actions.
Kaisar: I could never hate you.
I will never hate you.
I will never hate you.
Kaisar: Losing an arm does not mean my dream of becoming a knight is lost.
Kaisar: I can try to wield a sword with one hand. If that fails, I'll get a prosthetic.
Kaisar: Who do you take me for? Do you think I would give up my dream over something so small as this!
Kaisar: Rita! Do what you must! For my dream...
Rita: I will.
Rita accepts Kaisar's words and slices with her blade.
Rita: Kaisar... How do you feel?
Kaisar: Good... The antidote is working. I should be fine now.
Kaisar: Having one less arm is a little tough though...
Kaisar laughs bitterly as he glances at where his left arm should be.
Rita: First thing we're going to do is get you to a prosthetist. Otherwise even daily tasks will be difficult for you.
Kaisar: How do you find a prosthetist...
Rita: Leave that to me. I cut your arm, so I need to find you a new one...
Choose: I'll help.
Lyria: Me too!
Vyrn: Me three!
Lyria: Of course. A friend in need is a friend indeed!
Rita: You really do like helping others.
Kaisar: Thank you.
Rita and Kaisar bow in unison to the crew.
Rita: A prosthetist...
Rita: I wonder if I could just zombify his cut left arm and put it back on him...
Rita: Probably not... Or could I?
