Scenario:Sahli Lao - Shaky Aim
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
While walking through a wood, (Captain) and the crew are set upon by an enormous monster. They are saved by the great bow-wielding archer known as Sahli Lao. They later bump into him again at a tournament, in which his natural anxiety gets the better of him. Lyria learns of his quest to rid himself of his stage fright, and invites him aboard their airship.
It's a sunny, lazy afternoon, and the crew have entered in to a sleepy, verdant forest.
However, the ground was still wet from the previous night's rain, and Lyria sprained her ankle, tripping in the mire.
Vyrn: What're we going to do? We must have the worst luck in the world to find a swamp in a place like this.
(Captain) appears, slightly winded and holding up the injured Lyria.
Lyria: I'm so sorry, (Captain)…
Lyria: But, I sure am glad that you're here. I feel much safer with you nearby.
Lyria: Ah! I mean… Oh, I'm sorry! Please, just ignore me.
A shadow appraoched the unwary party. (Captain), still supporting the injured Lyria, was unable to react until it is too late.
Vyrn: What now? More rain?
Lyria: Vyrn, behind you!
Vyrn: What's wrong? You look like you've seen a ghost…
Monster of Unusual Size: Grararrrgh!
A gigantic, four-legged monster looms behind Vyrn, licking its lips.
Vyrn: Whaaa! That's huge! Let's get outta here, (Captain)!
(Captain) and the crew try to make a hasty retreat, but with Lyria still injured progress was slow.
Vyrn: Darn! We'll never outrun it at this rate!
???: D-don't worry! I-I won't miss this time!
An arrow appeared from nowhere, hitting the monster square between the eyes and felling the beast with an almighty thud.
Vyrn: Whaaat! What was that!
???: Got it!
The myserious saviour of (Captain) and the crew was a Harvin archer wielding an enormous bow.
Vyrn: Wow, now that's what I call a bow! It's even bigger than you! How are you even able to hold it?
???: When you're a Harvin, using something like this isn't so difficult.
Vyrn: Incredible! You must be a master archer! Thanks a bunch, big guy!
???: I'm just glad you're all unharmed. Now, I bid you all farewell…
Lyria: No, wait! We haven't had a chance to thank you yet.
???: No need! It is I who should be thanking you.
???: I'm just a soldier. Protecting the young and helpless is my job.
???: …Well, to tell you the truth, I'm actually off-duty right now, so I'm not protecting anyone per se.
???: In fact I'm taking the opportunity to travel.
Lyria: Fascinating… Wait! If you don't mind me asking, could you tell us your name?
Sahli Lao: Oh, how rude of me. My name is Sahli Lao. Now, I must be off.
Several days later, (Captain) and a fully recovered Lyria went to enjoy the local sights.
They found a tournament where archers from all over Sky World pit their skills against one another.
Sahli Lao: Ha! Ugh! Ooph!
Lyria: Wait! Over there, isn't that Sahli Lao?
Sahli Lao: It's you two!
Sahli Lao: Hello. So it seems you decided to stay on the island, then.
Lyria: Yes! Sahli Lao, are you going to be entering the tournament?
Sahli Lao: That's right. I need to keep my skills sharp…
Lyria: Good Luck! We'll be cheering for you!
Sahli Lao: You will? Oh, th-thank you…
With great grace and faultless aim, Sahli Lao easily made his way into the final.
However, as the final approached his arms started to show signs of exhaustion.
Sahli Lao: I-its… It's the final…
Sahli Lao: No problem, no problem… I just need to cross my fingers and hope for the best…
Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen! The final is about to begin!
Sahli Lao: Oh no! I mean, y-yes…! Here I go!
Sahli Lao stood, ready. But even from a distance it was clear that his great bow was shaking in his hands.
Vyrn: Hmm? Oh, dear. That doesn't look good.
Lyria: Oh my… He does look a bit nervous, doesn't he?
Sahli Lao: (Sigh)
Announcer: Aha! The little Harvin with the Great Bow! He has yet to miss a target in this competition! Can he make it a perfect score?
Sahli Lao: J-just… one… more…
Announcer: What's this? Oh my, folks, a ferocious beast has made its way onto the field!
Sahli Lao: What! Oh no!
Sahli Lao's arrow shot off in entirely the wrong direction, and he was relegated to second place.
Lyria: Sahli! Congratulations on making it ot the final. Second place is still a great achievement.
Vyrn: I suppose… But to lose because of a stupid, little cat…
Sahli Lao: Please don't fret over it. Getting to the final is enough for this soldier!
Lyria: Oh… I'm sorry…
Vyrn: Hey, you didn't mean anything bad by it…
Sahli Lao: No, of course not. If anyone did anything wrong, it was me.
Sahli Lao: I've never been able to handle the pressure when it came to the crunch. My comrades used to call me "king of the runner-ups."
Sahli Lao: I was hoping to find a cure for my anxiety on this trip, but…
Choose: I understand completely.
Vyrn: Don't worry about it. Everyone gets nervous when it comes to the crunch.
Choose: No worries, "king of the runner-ups"!
Vyrn: (Captain)! This is no laughing matter!Continue 1
Sahli Lao: Ah, but I was so close to ridding myself of this affliction, back when she was here…
Milleore is a crew member
Sahli Lao: …There was another reason I went on this trip. I need to find one of my comrades, a woman, of great talent.
Milleore not in crew
Vyrn: Wait, you're saying there are other Harvins who use a great bow?
Sahli Lao: That's right. I'm looking for one of my comrades. She was a free spirit, and had a very talented aim.
Lyria: I see… I think I'd like to meet this woman!
Lyria: Sahli Lao. What would you say to the idea of joining our crew?
Lyria: We have many great warriors who could help you with your problem, and we might find your friend on our travels.
Sahli Lao: An interesting proposal… Until now I've been practicing alone.
Sahli Lao: You might be right. To improve beyond where I am currently, I need to surround myself with great warriors.
Vyrn: So it's decided then! From today you're offically one of the crew! Best of luck, big guy!
Sahli Lao: I'll try my best not to disappoint you, (Captain)!
A small warrior with a great bow, the nervous archer Sahli Lao was on a quest to rid himself of his debilitating stage fright.
Milleore is a crew member
Milleore: Lao… You've not changed a bit, have you?
Milleore: But, maybe we're fated to be together. Things are about to get very interesting…
Vyrn: Hey, something doesn't always feel right with that guy…
The source of that unease was a story in and of itself, but maybe that's a tale for another time.
