Scenario:Siegfried - Ominous Shadow
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
(Captain) and the crew unexpectedly reunite with Siegfried, who's been sending monster-hunting rewards back to his homeland to help restore it while searching for a way to cleanse it of its pollution. They decide to help him and add him to their ranks.
(Captain) and the crew hear tales of a disturbing presence described as a dark shadow that has thrown a village into an uproar.
On a mission from the Knickknack Shack to search for the shadow, they arrive at the village.
Vyrn: So what can you tell us about this black shadow?
Mayor: Well, a few days ago, a suspicious swordsman with a great sword showed up in the forest outside the village.
Mayor: A young woman from the village vanished in the forest around the same time.
Mayor: To make matters worse, something is messing with the crops in our fields every night, so all the villagers are terrified.
Lyria: That's horrible... We'd better put them at ease!
Vyrn: Yeah! No black shadow's gonna stop us!
Thus the crew heads to the dark forest where the black shadow is said to appear.
Vyrn: Yikes... This place is creepy.
Lyria: Yeah... Vyrn and (Captain), please stay close to me!
(Captain) and the crew suddenly hear something stirring nearby.
Vyrn: Look! I think there's someone with a great sword in the shadow of that tree.
Lyria: You think that's the black shadow? Whoever it is just went into that cave!
Vyrn: All right... Let's follow, but try not to get spotted, (Captain)!
(Captain) and the crew follow the black shadow into the cave.
They soon reach an empty space inside the cave.
But watching the shadow as secretly as possible proves difficult.
Lyria: It's too dark to really see much.
A woman suddenly cries out from near the black shadow.
(Captain) and the crew dash in to help.
Vyrn: Hey! What do you think you're doing?
???: I'll ask you instead. You've been tailing me for a while, so what do you think you're doing?
Lyria: Huh? Is that... Siegfried?
Siegfried: Is it you guys? The crew from before?
Vyrn: Whoa! You were the black shadow all along, Siegfried?
Siegfried: Hey, keep your voice down...
Village Girl: Save me! I've been kidnapped!
Lyria: Please calm down! What's going on here?
Siegfried: Hey! Didn't I tell you to be quiet? It'll hear you!
Siegfried cuts the monster in two with a single rapid slash.
Siegfried: You're not hurt, are you, Lyria?
Lyria: No, I'm fine. Thank you, Siegfried!
Vyrn: So there was a monster hiding around here? What's this all about?
Siegfried: For the past few days, I've been pursuing this monster, which has a price on its head.
Vyrn: I see... So what about the girl?
Siegfried: When I finally located the monster's lair, I found the girl it kidnapped collapsed here.
Village Girl: Thank you so much for saving me!
Vyrn: So this monster is the one that's been devastating the crops?
Siegfried: Indeed. I realize that all my lurking about made the villagers feel uneasy...
Siegfried: But I didn't want to turn up without proof and end up getting wrongly accused again.
Lyria: And with all that, you ended up saving me again.
Vyrn: All right! Let's go back to the village and tell them what happened!
With the return of the girl to the village, the case closes on the black shadow.
(Captain) and the crew remember Siegfried from an incident in another nation.
Siegfried and the crew joined forces to expose wrongdoing that plagued that nation, but they didn't see each other after that.
To celebrate this reunion, they go to a village tavern to catch up.
Vyrn: So why are you only hunting monsters that have a big bounty on their heads?
Siegfried: Ah, that's a personal matter...
Lyria: What's wrong? If you're having money problems, we might be able to scrape some together for you!
Siegfried: Don't be silly! Children shouldn't say such things.
Siegfried: But I appreciate the sentiment. Rest assured that I'm not trying to hide anything shameful from you.
Siegfried: I have a good reason for hunting monsters with bounties on their heads.
Siegfried: It's to send contributions to assist with the revival of my homeland, Feendrache.
Lyria: I see... That would definitely require money.
Siegfried: Even though I'm away from my country, I still want to help out with its revival in any way I can.
Vyrn: That's our Siegfried! You continue to consider the needs of your country like a truly noble knight!
Siegfried: It's really the least I can do to make amends to my country.
Siegfried: But there's actually something I'd much rather give to my country than money.
Lyria: What do you mean?
Siegfried: Well, during my travels I heard rumors of mystical mollusks said to cleanse all blight.
Vyrn: Mollusks? Why would you bother looking for something like that?
Siegfried: I think I can use them to quickly cleanse the parts of my country that are still polluted.
Siegfried: But I still have no clue where the shells can be found.
Lyria: Then why don't you let us help you find them?
Siegfried: That's most kind of you, but aren't you trying to reach the Island of the Astrals?
Siegfried: Are you really willing to take a detour? Or have you given up already?
Choose: Oh, lighten up already, Siegfried!
Siegfried: Excuse me?
Lyria: Hm... You can get way too serious sometimes, but you're still a great person, I think!
Vyrn: Hey, Lyria. You're not exactly helping here...
Choose: You're serious, but in a cool way!
Siegfried: Hold on. Are you making fun of me?
Vyrn: Ah! But you look pretty happy regardless!
Siegfried: I'm not especially thrilled. I don't really concern myself with what others think of me.
Lyria: But you really are cool, Siegfried!
Siegfried: Give it a rest. Just tell me what's going on with the Island of the Astrals.
Lyria: Well, we haven't actually found any more clues about the island yet.
Vyrn: Yeah! I mean, if we knew where to go, we wouldn't be running into you on a random mission from the Knickknack Shack!
Siegfried: You know, I'm starting to wonder if you guys are really going to be okay.
Lyria: Really? Then that's one more reason for you to come with us!
Vyrn: Yeah! You're the Dragonslayer after all! So what do you say? Will you join our crew in return for us helping you find those mollusks?
Siegfried: What have I gotten myself into...
Choose: We're just kidding! Let's find those shells!
Siegfried: Enough with the jokes already. Just tell me what you plan to do about your journey.
Vyrn: We haven't even decided where to go next, so don't worry about it!
Lyria: Yeah! And your strength will help us no matter what happens anyway!
Vyrn: So why don't you join our crew in return for us helping you find those mollusks?
Choose: We'll give up the dream...
Vyrn: Hey, (Captain)! You can't be serious! You're joking, right?
Lyria: Wait! I'm sure (Captain) has more to say.
Vyrn: Hey, just tell us you're joking! C'mon, (Captain)!
Choose: We can't just bail on Siegfried!
Vyrn: Oh... So he's that important to you, huh, (Captain)?
Lyria: You've been wanting to help Feendrache ever since that incident, right, (Captain)?
Siegfried: I see... But even so, you'll never give up on reaching the Island of the Astrals then.
Siegfried: You know, neither of us has much of a way with words.
Siegfried: What's wrong? I can't read your mind, you know.
Vyrn: That's right. You gotta speak up. Right, Lyria?
Lyria: It's just a hunch... but I think I know how (Captain) feels.
Lyria gazes into (Captain)'s eyes for a moment and then begins to speak softly.
Lyria: I think (Captain) wants to say that finding the Island of the Astrals isn't worth it...
Lyria: If it means abandoning someone who's in trouble right before your eyes.
(Captain) nods in agreement.
Siegfried: I see... So that's your answer then.
Siegfried: You know, neither of us has much of a way with words.Continue 1
With a gravely serious expression on his face, Siegfried stares into (Captain)'s eyes.
He senses something deep within those eyes, and he slowly opens his mouth with apparent resolve.
Siegfried: Understood. You've certainly made yourselves clear.
Siegfried: Perhaps it was fate for us to be reunited like this.
Siegfried: (Captain), I would like for you and your friends to help me out with both my search and the revival of Feendrache.
Vyrn: You got it! Those mollusks will be easier to find with all of us looking!
Lyria: That's right! Siero might know something!
Vyrn: Besides, Siegfried will probably end up framed again if we don't look after him!
Siegfried: Indeed. That's not the least bit funny, but there's probably some truth to it.
Siegfried: You'll help me if it ever happens again, right, Lyria?
Lyria: Yeah! I owe you one after all!
Siegfried: I appreciate that. Well, it seems that my life is in your hands for the time being, everyone.
Thus the lone swordsman Siegfried joins the crew on their journey.
And with an unwavering faith, he is determined to discover what he yearns to find.
