Scenario:Sig - The Wide Green Yonder
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
The Wide Green Yonder
Having completed a certain request, the crew settles down for a meal in the village. The shopkeep offers them some scourgefish sashimi, claiming that he got it from a peddler who came by the village. However, Sig can tell that the fish in front of them isn't the legendary giant monster and wasn't even caught from an ocean. The crew decides to head to the forest to find the peddler.
As requested by a client, the crew has disembarked upon a certain island.
Having completed the request without incident, they retire to a village tavern for a meal.
Sig: Great work today, everyone! We really nailed it!
Vyrn: Heheh! The village chief said he was glad he requested us for the job!
Lyria: Yeah! I'm glad we were able to resolve everything in the end!
Shopkeep: Welcome! Are y'all the airship crew I've heard so much about? Then everything's on the house!
Sig: Ooh! Thanks a bunch! Can't wait!
Shopkeep: No problem! We have something good for y'all today!
The shopkeep eagerly slides the dishes onto the table.
Vyrn: Hmm? Is this some kind of meat? But it's raw!
Shopkeep: Ha ha ha! It's supposed to be. It's a special seafood dish.
Lyria: Huh? So it's fish?
Shopkeep: Yup. It's an Auguste-exclusive dish, y'see…
Sig: It's called "sashimi." They cut the fish into bite-sized pieces that you dip into the sauce and eat.
Vyrn: Ooh, I see! So this is a special dish from your hometown, huh, Sig?
Lyria: Ummm… Is this black liquid the "sauce"?
Sig: Yep. Just dip it in and then stuff the whole thing in your mouth!
Vyrn: Let's see… Wow! I've never tasted anything like it!
Lyria: (Munch, munch)… Ooh! This flavor is so… different!
Sig: Now it's my turn. We fishers have very discerning tastes, I'll have you know!
Sig: Let's see… Om nom nom…
Shopkeep: Umm… So… how is it? Does it hold up to the real thing?
Sig: Oh, it's not bad or anything. It's just…
Sig: What kind of fish is this, exactly?
Shopkeep: Heh heh heh… I'm glad you asked!
Shopkeep: I should have known you would notice it, miss. This fish is of the highest quality! It is none other than scourgefish!
Lyria: WHAT? S- Scourgefish?
Shopkeep: Yeah, that's right! I bought it from a peddler who came into town recently.
Sig: Oh really? A peddler, eh?
Sig: Say, mister. Did you know that the scourgefish is a legendary giant monster that lives in the Auguste Sea?
Shopkeep: Huh? L- Legendary? I'm afraid not. I only heard rumors in passing, y'see…
Sig: I knew it… This fish here isn't high quality. Far from it. It's basically worthless.
Sig: What is this fish doing in this village? I don't know what you were told, but you were lied to.
Shopkeep: No… But I… But… It can't be!
Sig: To be fair, this one does look like a scourgefish, but it doesn't taste like the ocean.
Sig: Trust me. I'm a fisher, so I know what I'm talking about.
Shopkeep: Nngh… I… I can't believe it…
Sig: I'm sorry this happened to you. Do you know where we can find this "peddler"?
Shopkeep: Yeah. He should be in the forest to the north, as I recall.
Sig: Say, (Captain). Wanna pay this "peddler" a visit? The fisher part of me just can't let this go.
Vyrn: Let's go! Whoever they are, I don't like their style!
Lyria: Yeah! We can't let them get away with this!
Sig: All right! Then it looks like we've got a job to do!
The Wide Green Yonder: Scene 2
The crew finds out that the peddler has been selling monster meat that tastes like scourgefish. Seized with righteous indignation as a fisher, Sig points her sword at the attacking peddler, prepared to punish him.
The crew heads deep into the forest. Soon, they spot a suspicious figure.
Peddler: Heh heh heh… Yeees, this will do nicely…
Sig: There he is. That must be the so-called "peddler"…
Lyria: He's, uh… digging a hole in the ground?
Vyrn: Hmm? Seems like some kinda trap. Is he out hunting or something?
Sig: Not sure. Let's just wait and see…
Peddler: Now then, come right this way… Yes, right into this hole!
Peddler: Tch… I don't have all day! Hurry it up, would you?
Peddler: Yes! You completely fell for it!
Peddler: Allow me to express my gratitude! I'll get quite the coin in exchange for a "scourgefish" like you!
Vyrn: Huh? Oh no… Don't tell me… The "sashimi" we ate earlier came from that?
Lyria: EEK! That caterpillar monster… we ate it?
Peddler: HEY! WHO'S THERE?
Lyria: Oh no! I'm sorry!
Sig: Guess we don't have a choice…
Hey, you! Explain yourself!
Hey, you! Explain yourself!
Sig: Do you mean to tell me you were going to sell this monster as a scourgefish? That's no joke to a fisher like me.
Peddler: Tch… So you saw everything?
Peddler: Fine! Secret's out! But don't you dare copy me, got it? This is my genius idea!
Vyrn: Ha ha, very funny! What you're doing is fraud, pal!
Peddler: Listen, I'm just spicing up their lives a little! These country bumpkins have never tasted the real thing! You should thank me!
Lyria: That's not right! You're lying to them!
Peddler: Hah hah hah! It's their fault for believing me!
Peddler: Now then, enough talk! I'll turn you people into sashimi, too!
Sig: This guy's rotten to the core… Let's get him, (Captain)!
The Wide Green Yonder: Scene 3
Having learned he was scammed, the shopkeep is utterly crushed, losing all motivation. Sig decides to encourage him by making a special dish known only to fishers. The shopkeep takes a liking to the flavor and cheers right up. Feeling encouraged once again, he adds this dish to the menu.
Having returned to the village, the crew decides to tell the shopkeep the truth of the matter.
Shopkeep: Oh my goodness… It was monster meat?
Sig: Sorry you had to find out this way. But we got your money back, at least. Here.
Shopkeep: Thanks. I can't believe I put so much effort into preparing a monster dish… Haha! Guess I'm certainly gonna be a laughing stock.
Vyrn: Awww, don't let it get you down, mister!
Lyria: Hey, um, maybe we could help you!
Shopkeep: Huh? Oh, no, don't worry about me. I'm just kinda tired.
Sig: Aww, c'mon! Cheer up, would you?
Sig: I didn't go to all this trouble just so you could feel bad over it!
Sig: To the contrary! Now that you know what meat you're working with, don't you think you could make more a more suitable dish?
Sig: I mean, for example… No, it would take too long to explain! Lemme borrow your kitchen!
Sig: Hehehe… Good, good! Perfect!
Vyrn: Hey, Sig! You never told us you could cook!
Sig: Of course I can! When you go on a fishing trip, you gotta make food on the boat, so I've thrown together my share of meals!
Sig: All right! It's done! Dig in, everyone!
Shopkeep: Whoa! This is delicious! What is this?
Sig: Well, you see, this monster tastes similar to scourgefish, but the meat isn't as firm.
Sig: And when it comes to tender meat, the best thing you can do is dice it up, mix it with a condiment, and bam! Done.
Sig: Where I'm from, we call this "tuna salad"!
Lyria: (Chew, chew)… Thish monshter tastesh sho good!
Vyrn: This is incredible! I'm impressed, Sig! You're not the slob I took you for!
Sig: Excuse me? You trying to get a one-way ticket into the oven? Huh?
Vyrn: EEEK! It was a joke! A joke!
Shopkeep: Ha ha ha! Goodness, I wouldn't have thought up a dish like this in a million years!
Shopkeep: Thank you, miss. You've given me the courage to try again.
Sig: No problem! And don't forget, tons of those monsters live in the forest. You can make all the tuna salad you want!
Sig: I'll give you the recipe later. Just remember me once you make it big!
Shopkeep: Don't you worry! If that happens, you can have all the free food you want!
Years later, the traditional fisher's "tuna salad" would become a beloved dish worldwide.
As the catalyst for this event, Sig would go on to gain fame among certain circles.
