Scenario:Seofon - The Boy and the Blade King
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
The Boy and the Blade King
A young boy attempts to pick Lyria's pocket, but Seofon notices and makes him return the stolen goods. Concerned about the boy, Seofon heads to the old part of town with the rest of the crew.
The crew heads down a crowded antique street in a well-known merchant town.
Seofon: The antique street divides this town down the middle, with newly renovated buildings on one side and slums on the other.
Vyrn: Wow, look at how nice this part of town is! Hard to believe there are slums right next door.
Lyria: Whoaa! (Captain)! Look at this cute general store!
Lyria: Oh! There's a clothing store over here! There are so many little stores lined up, it's hard to choose!
Seofon: Hahaha! You're like a kid in a candy store, Lyria!
Seofon: Just tell big brother Seofon if you find something you want!
Lyria: Thank you, Seofon!
Vyrn: Hey, Lyria! Watch where you're going!
Lyria bumps into a boy as he is walking by.
Boy: Hey! Watch it!
Lyria: I-I'm sorry!
Seofon grabs the boy by the shoulder as he tries to walk away.
Boy: W-what do you want?
Seofon: Hmm... Now that's no way to behave! Give it back now, and I won't get mad, okay?
Boy: Ugh... Lemme go! W-what do you think you're tryin' to pull?
Seofon: Now, now. Give it back to this nice lady, okay?
The boy tosses Lyria's wallet back to her with a resigned air.
Boy: Hrmph... Quit acting like a big shot, you stupid outsider!
The boy runs away into a back alley.
Lyria: Seofon... Thank you.
Vyrn: That's our Seofon!
Seofon: Sigh... This is troubling.
Vyrn: Hey now... What's wrong, Seofon? You're lookin' real glum all of a sudden.
Lyria: Y-yeah, I can't even remember the last time we saw you like this.
Seofon: Aw, c'mon! I have bouts of sadness too, you know!
Seofon: Like when I cry myself to sleep because the other Eternals never give me a moment of peace...
Lyria: Wow... So even Eternals have bad days...
Seofon: It's okay! It's never a dull moment with them around! Hahaha!
Lyria: I knew it. I'm sure you would have cracked another joke or two if everything was okay!
Seofon: Oh! You're learning, Lyria!
Lyria: Hehe... I've been learning every day!
Vyrn: Anyway... What's troubling you? Tell us.
Seofon: Well, the thing is... something about that boy's eyes bothers me.
Seofon: I know kids with hardened eyes like that. Kids with troubled pasts. Seeing those eyes reminded me of them.
Seofon turns away from the crew and begins walking away.
Lyria: S-Seofon! Where are you going?
Seofon: Sorry! I'm worried about that boy...
Seofon: I'm gonna go talk to him real quick. You guys have fun sightseeing!
Vyrn: We can't go sightseeing after hearing that!
Lyria: Exactly! Take us with you!
Seofon: Heheh... I knew you'd say that. But that's what I like about you guys.
Seofon: Well then. Shall we?
The crew steps into the back alley of the old town where they last saw the boy.
Vyrn: This place is falling apart... I can't believe it's part of the same town...
Lyria: Yeah... It's practically a ruin at this point...
Seofon: This place still hasn't recovered from the civil war a few years ago.
Seofon: The new government redid the other part of town to look good for tourists but left the old town festering as is.
Lyria: I see... I had no idea.
Seofon: Hm? Wait just a second...
Seofon suddenly instructs the crew to stop.
Seofon: My goodness... What's happened to this town? Ready yourself, (Captain).
Vyrn: What's going on, Seofon?
Seofon: Looks like some monsters have made their nests here. Let's clean house... carefully.
The Boy and the Blade King: Scene 2
As (Captain) and crew search for the boy, the mafia appears and demands the crew pay to pass. When the crew refuses, the mafia attacks.
As the crew searches the back alley for the boy, members of the local mafia appear.
Mafia 1: Hey! This is our turf you're walkin' through!
Seofon: Goodness. Looks like some scary characters have made their nests here too.
Mafia 2: Hey, you got somethin' in your ears? Walkin' here isn't free, so pay up!
Seofon: Sorry. I'm not sure I understand the meaning of the words you're using.
Seofon: Is this street your property? Hm? Is it?
Mafia 1: What kind of stupid question is that? If you don't wanna get hurt, then shaddup and hand over the cash!
Seofon: Gracious me. Even monsters are easier to talk to than you.
Mafia 2: Enough of the yammerin'! I'm gonna shut you up right now!
The mafia soldier lunges at Lyria with a blade.
Mafia 1: Rgh! Yeooowch!
Seofon grabs the mafia soldier by the hand and twists it around.
Lyria: T-thank you, Seofon!
Seofon: What kind of scum would dare attack a defenseless little girl like that?
Seofon: You've put me in a seriously bad mood. But you're a big boy. You won't cry after what I put you through.
Mafia 2: Oh, a tough guy huh? Get 'im!
Vyrn: (Captain)! Let's go help Seofon!
The Boy and the Blade King: Scene 3
The crew defeats the mafia; Seofon kindly talks to the boy, who remains guarded. Before much else can be said, the mafia attacks.
Mafia 1: Argh! Listen, pal! You ain't about to make it out of here alive!
Seofon: Whatever you say! See you later! Oh, and not even an army of your buddies could stop us, just so you know.
The crew defeats the mafia underlings and goes after the boy again.
Seofon: Well then... These slums sure are hard to tell apart.
Seofon: The mafia doesn't care who gets sacrificed to fuel their rise...
In the back alley, the crew finds the pickpocket boy from earlier.
Boy: Y-you guys again... What're you doing here?
Seofon: No need to fear. I'm just here to talk to you.
Boy: Y-you're lying! What do you want? Are you here to turn me in?
Seofon: No, no... Here, I'll put my sword down. Does that put your mind at ease?
Seofon lays his sword on the ground.
Reassured about Seofon's intentions, the boy soon relaxes.
Seofon: Are you doing this because you like it? Come on. Tell me about yourself.
The boy reluctantly begins to talk.
Boy: My life ended the day my parents died in the civil war.
Boy: I lost my home... and became an orphan. When I had nowhere else to go, the mafia took me in.
Boy: I guess you can guess the rest. I do whatever I need to do to live... and hand over the money I collect each day to the mafia.
Seofon: If this keeps up, things will only get worse for you. You need to cut ties with the mafia right now.
Boy: Don't talk like you know me! It's not that easy!
The boy grows increasingly frustrated and looks away.
Seofon: You're right... I don't know anything about you. That's why I came here to talk. Now look me in the eyes when you speak to me.
Seofon: Your only choice is to change yourself. Give it some thought... How would you go about escaping your current situation?
Boy: If I could do that, I would have done it a long time ago!
In the next moment, the mafia soldiers from earlier return with backup.
Mafia 1: Hey, you! What kinda garbage are you spoutin' to my good buddy there?
Seofon: You have nothing to do with him any longer.
Mafia 2: Oh yeah? And why the hell should I listen to you?
Seofon: (Captain)... Some of his mafia buddies are hiding behind him.
Mafia 1: How'd you know?
Seofon takes advantage of the mafia's surprise by quickly picking up his sword.
Seofon: Just looking at people like you disgusts me.
Mafia 2: Ugh! Come on out! He knows you're back there, guys!
A horde of mafia members surrounds the crew.
Mafia 1: Heheheh... Like I said earlier, it's all of us versus your little group... You ain't makin' it outta here alive!
Seofon: Sigh... That is so what a grunt like you would say in this situation, isn't it?
Mafia 1: The hell you say?
Seofon: Go ahead and cover the rear, (Captain).
Vyrn: Got it! Leave this side to us!
The Boy and the Blade King: Scene 4
Seofon summons countless swords to strike down the group of mafia soldiers. After things calm down, Seofon convinces the boy to go to Stardust Town, revealing his kind-hearted nature to the crew.
The crew wards off the mafia attack.
But the mafia has strength in numbers and begins closing in on the crew.
Seofon: Goodness gracious... They're practically like cockroaches.
Mafia 1: End of the line, pal! Not so big now, are ya, tough guy?
Seofon: Very well... An eye for an eye. I'll answer your numbers... with those of my own.
In the next moment, Seofon unleashes his spirit sword collection.
The mafia members look upon the countless swords hovering around Seofon and despair.
Mafia 1: T-those swords floatin' around 'im... It can't be!
Seofon: I am Seofon. Star Sword Sovereign and leader of the Eternals.
Seofon: Get out of my sight before I count to three.
Seofon: If not... these swords will be upon you without mercy.
Mafia 2: S-Seofon? O-of the Eternals?
Mafia 1: No way... Why would he be here?
Mafia 2: S-screw this! No way I'm fightin' one of those guys!
Mafia 1: L-let's get out of here!
The mafia members scatter like baby spiders as soon as they find out Seofon is one of the Eternals.
Seofon: Hm... Judging by the way they reacted, they must have heard some nasty rumors about the Eternals.
With the mafia gone, Seofon talks to the boy again one-on-one.
Boy: Why are you going so far out of your way for me?
Seofon: Who can say? All I know is... when I look at you, it reminds me of the time I ran into a certain pair of twins.
Seofon: Heheh... They had the same untrusting look in their eyes.
Seofon laughs as he reminisces and then looks the boy in the eyes as he continues to talk.
Seofon: You should go to Stardust Town... You'll find friends there. I'm sure of it.
Boy: Stardust Town?
Seofon: Yeah. I'll write a letter recommending you to Feower and Tien. They run the show there.
Seofon: The rest... is up to you.
Boy: Thanks, mister...
Seofon: Hey, that's hardly any way to address someone! Call me Seofon!
Boy: Okay, Mister Seofon! I'm gonna head to Stardust Town!
Seofon: Heh... Hold on to that rambunctious spirit, and something tells me you'll be all right.
Seofon: Do your best... and learn all that you can.
Boy: I will! I'm gonna be strong... just like you!
Seofon gives a handwritten letter to the boy and sees him off.
Seofon notices Vyrn looking at him from the corner of his eye.
Seofon: Hm? What is it?
Vyrn: Oh, nothin' really. I was just thinkin'... you're a really cool guy sometimes, Seofon.
Seofon: Come now. I'm always cool! Right, Lyriaaa?
Lyria: Yeah! There's a lot I don't know about you, but you seem like a wonderful person!
Seofon: That's right! An easily understood man is an easily dumped man. Don't you agree, (Captain)?
Vyrn: I'm not sure if Lyria meant that as a compliment... Wait. I guess she did?
Seofon: Don't stress the little things, or you'll end up a sad little lounge lizard!
Vyrn: Huh? I ain't becoming no lizard!
Seofon: Now then, Lyria! Let's continue our little shopping trip, shall we?
Lyria: Okay! But... why don't we go eat something first?
Seofon: Sounds good to me! What would you like to eat? Come along now, everyone!
The crew catches a glimpse—however brief—of Seofon's strict but kind-hearted nature.
They're slightly disappointed to see him return to his usual goofy self soon afterward.
