Scenario:Sarya - Haunted House Investigation
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
Haunted House Investigation
Sarya, who received a quest from Sierokarte, explains to (Captain)’s party what needed to be investigated. It seems people are hearing strange voices coming from the haunted mansion that no one has been living in for years now. They discuss what could be causing these rumors, but no one can come up with a straight answer. They decide it’d be best to go there in person and investigate it themselves.
One day, Sarya comes rushing in to visit (Captain) and company. She says she received a quest from Sierokarte.
The quest entailed an investigation of the abandoned mansion at the edge of town.
Sarya: Just to let you know... I’ve accepted that quest!
Vyrn: Wait, so what? A haunted mansion?
Sarya: From what I’m told, there seems to be some strange things happening at this mansion at the edge of town.
Sarya: The place has been abandoned for a long time. No one should be living there.
Sarya: But just recently, people are starting to say that they hear strange voices coming from it.
Lyria: Oh no... Could it be ghosts? This is starting to sound scary...
Sarya: True, there are incidents when ghosts and the like can cause phenomena like this, but...
Sarya: If it were a ghost who was still attached to this mansion, I think they would have started haunting the place long ago.
Vyrn: Hmm... Maybe someone put a curse on the house?
Sarya: I doubt it. It’s not like anyone lives there. There’s no talk of demolishing the place either.
Sarya: I mean even if it were a curse, who are they trying to scare away? That’s the strange part.
Vyrn: Err... I don’t think this is gonna go anywhere just talking about it.
Sarya: You’re right. We have to go there and take a look ourselves!
Lyria: Wahh... There better not be any ghosts...
Sarya: Hmm. So this mansion in question is supposed to be up ahead.
Lyria: Ahh... Please let there be no ghosts...
Vyrn: Geez, Lyria. You’re looking quite pale there.
Sarya: Haha... I’m not really fond of ghosts either. We’ll just take a quick look at the place. That way we can finish up real fast!
Sarya: Ready? Let’s go, (Captain)!
Haunted House Investigation: Scene 2
(Captain) begins to search around the haunted mansion. From the hints that they find, Sarya gains an idea on the culprits who are most likely using the place. To search for more clues, they open a door from which monsters appear. It was these monsters’ voices that people had been hearing coming from the house.
Sarya: Hmm. Interesting. So this is what this mansion looks like inside.
Vyrn: *Gulp* There’s something in there for sure.
Sarya: But I don’t hear any voices yet. Maybe there’s like, a time when ghosts wake up.
Sarya: Either way, I’m pretty sure there’s something here. I’ve got a gut feeling about this.
Vyrn: All right! Let’s start looking for clues!
Lyria: Wehhh... There really better not be any ghosts...
And so, the group begins to search through the mansion. Sarya, being a professional detective, knew what to look for in each corner of the house.
Sarya: I see...
Vyrn: So? Did you find anything yet?
Sarya: It doesn’t look like it’s ghosts.
Lyria: Oh, what a relief...
Sarya: The rust is coming off of the hinges on these doors. Which means someone’s opened and closed this door very recently.
Sarya: And the floors are too clean. If no one has been in here for a long time, there should be a lot of dust and dead bugs.
Vyrn: Which means...?
Sarya: People are secretly using this place as their home.
Sarya: Let’s find out who these intruders are.
Sarya continues her search through the grand hall but is unable to find anything. She reaches for the door in the back.
Vyrn: What the...! There’s a monster in here! It’s a huge one!
Sarya: I think we may have interrupted its sleep. It’s really mad! Watch out!
Sarya: I get it now. This monster’s roars were the cause of the strange sounds!
Sarya: I’ve found you, “ghost!” Once we take care of this, it’s case closed!
Haunted House Investigation: Scene 3
(Captain)’s party decided to fight the monster but it seems the monster doesn’t want to move. They decide to run away for the time being. While on their run, they bump into a rogue thug. Listening to the thug talk, Sarya realizes the syndicate, which was after Barawa, was using this mansion as their hideout. In an attempt to get rid of them, she suggests they use the monster they found earlier to destroy the place.
Vyrn: What the...? This monster isn’t moving at all!
Sarya: Hmph! I wasn’t expecting this! I didn’t think it’d be this strong!
Lyria: Um, guys...? I think we should run!
Vyrn: Damnit! We have no choice! Let’s run! (Captain)!
(Captain)’s party turns around and runs away from the monster. However...
Sarya: Oh, come one! When’s it gonna stop chasing us?!
Vyrn: Ow... Don’t scare me like that.
Thug: Huh?! Who the hell are you?! What are you doing here?!
Sarya: If you must ask, I must answer! We’re detectives! Now, I should be asking you what you’re doing here! This place is off limits! You’re trespassing!
Thug: What?! Detectives?! Oh, so you’re that detective’s friends!
Thug: Ugh! So you’re the one that let him escape, too! Where’d you hide him?!
Sarya: That detective...? You mean Boss Barawa is here?
Thug: Heh! You air-heads! You sure you’re part of his crew? You’re starting to look like our monster’s dinner!
Sarya: Hah! I think you’ve mistaken, because you’re the air-head! That monster you’re talking about...
Sarya: Look, right behind you!
Thug: What are you talking about? That’s impossi-...
Sarya: So it looks like that syndicate that was after Boss was using this place as their hideout.
Sarya: Such a strange coincidence. But! This is perfect!
Sarya: We can use that monster to destroy this entire place!
Vyrn: Wow... That’s some idea you got, Miss Assistant.
Sarya: Come on, let’s go! (Captain)!
Haunted House Investigation: Scene 4
Sarya and the crew were successful in tearing down the syndicate’s hideout with the enraged monster. While running away from the angry thug, they reunite with Barawa and together, they escape from the mansion. After telling Sierokarte about the whole story, they are told that the Imperial Army will be visiting to take a full report from her. They quickly leave the Knickknack Shack and head out to their ship.
Thug: Oi! Stop right there! You think you can get away destroying our place?!
Sarya: Hmph! It’s payback for trying to hurt my boss!
Thug: Damn you! You’re not gonna get away with this!
Sarya: We have to run! Everyone!
And so a game of chase began between (Captain)’s party and the thugs in this mansion, all the while a monster was running amuck.
Sarya: There’s no point in chasing us! I run really fast and so does my boss!
Thug: *Pant*... Damn them... I really can’t catch up...
Sarya: Everyone! Let’s keep it up until we lose them!
They continue to run down the long hallway at top speed. They were sure they could get away, but...
Sarya, who was running up ahead, is suddenly grabbed by her arm. Something pulls her away into the shadows.
Vyrn: What? Hey! You okay?! Miss Assistant!
Lyria: Oh no, oh no! Sarya’s been taken!
Barawa: Shh! Stop yelling! It’s me!
Sarya: Boss! What are you doing here? Do you know how worried I was?! Geez! Stupid Boss!
Barawa: Listen to me! I said, be quiet!
Barawa: I was wondering what was going on here. So it was you guys who did it, (Captain)?
Barawa: Guess I should say thanks, though. The guards looked away so I managed to escape.
Sarya: So Boss? What are you doing here?
Barawa: I’ll explain later. We have to get out of here, now!
Sarya: Hey! Boss! Wait up!
And so, though they hadn’t planned on it, (Captain)’s party was able to rescue Barawa and the girl. They head to the Knickknack Shack to report their findings.
Sarya: In conclusion, there were no ghosts in the mansion...
Sierokarte: I see... So it was the crime syndicate we’ve been hearing about lately...
Barawa: Curse those guys. I couldn't care less about myself but how dare they kidnap such a little child...
Girl: Wahh... *hic*... I was... so scared...
Sarya: Huh? Young lady, this perfume...
Lyria: Hehe... A little cheeky for your age, though.
Sarya: No...! I mean... This is the scent of the phantom thief, Chat Noir!
Vyrn: Say what?! You mean she’s the phantom thief in disguise?
Sarya: Well no, I doubt that. Even Chat Noir can’t change the size of his body with this disguise transformations.
Sarya: Was the phantom thief inside that mansion? Do you know anything, Boss?
Barawa: Uh, yeah... I guess he was there. Maybe. Not quite sure what he was up to, but...
Sierokarte: Okay everyone, listen up! I’m gonna have to ask you all to wrap it up!
Vyrn: Huh? Why all of a sudden? That’s rare of you to want us to leave.
Sierokarte: Well, you see... I guess that crime syndicate had some ongoing issues with the Erste Empire as well...
Sierokarte: Hehe! And when I spoke to them earlier, they told me they’ll be coming here to hear more about it in detail...
Vyrn: Wait, what?! They’re coming here?!
Vyrn: Then we need to leave! (Captain)! Let’s go before those imperial guys come!
Sierokarte: See you! The Imperial Army should be taking care of the rest!
And so, by carrying out the quest from the Knickknack Shack, the group was able to reunite with detective Barawa.
As for what had happened with Barawa... And the reason he had disappeared in the first place... Well, that’s a story for another day.
