Scenario:Soriz - A Man's Dream
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
A Man's Dream
On a rocky mountain covered in gushing hot springs, our heroes met “Rockfisted Soriz. ”Soriz, who had conquered many fighting competitions, was pursuing his ideals. Soriz was a known flirt, and when Rosetta turned up, he enthusiastically offered to join (Captain) and company on their journey.
During their travels, our heroes stopped at a certain island, where a dangerous rumor was making everyone uneasy.
Apparently, this rocky mountain had been gaining popularity for its gushing hot springs, but people had started hearing frightening noises.
Upon request by a townsperson, (Captain) and company embarked on a quest to investigate the mountain...
Vyrn: Whoa! What was that crash?!
Lyria: Wah! That scared me...
Lyria: M-Maybe this is what that rumor’s about...? You know, the one the townsperson was talking about?
Katalina: It would seem so. Are monsters behind it...? It’s possible a primal beast could be involved, too.
Katalina: All right! For now, let’s proceed with caution so nobody gets hurt. Let’s hurry on, (Captain).
Vyrn: Whoa! Looks like we’re getting really close.
Katalina: Yeah... Remember, proceed with caution, (Captain)!
Soriz: Whew... Huh? Who are you people?
Lyria: AAAH! Some old guy just came out of a rock!
Vyrn: No he didn’t! He punched through it with his fists!
Vyrn: Hey, Beardy!!! How the hell are you able to crush boulders like that...?!
Soriz: Whoa there! Stay back! It’s not safe!
Soriz: This is really no place for a bunch of kids. You’re getting in the way of my training. Get lost.
Vyrn: Wha?! Don’t treat us like kids, dude! We’re perfectly competent skyfarers!
Vyrn: There’s a creepy noise coming from this mountain that’s got all the townspeople freaked out.
Vyrn: So we’re here to investigate, just in case there might be monsters up here!
Soriz: I see... So my training is frightening the townspeople. I feel bad for upsetting them.
Katalina: Still... If you can crush rocks with a single punch... You must have some truly masterful hands.
Soriz: Hmm. Yeah, I suppose they’re not half bad. But it’s still not enough. They need to be more...
Katalina: Hm? Not enough, you say...?
Soriz: Oh, it’s nothing. Anyway, I’m Soriz. And I’m sorry for causing trouble.
Katalina: H-Hang on... That name... I feel like I’ve heard it somewhere before...
Katalina: That’s it! Excuse me, but are you Rockfisted Soriz?! The winner of all those fighting competitions?!
Soriz: Haha! That brings back memories. But... I’ve put my past behind me.
Soriz: Now I’m just an old man who’s trying to exceed the limits of his own body through vigorous training. They say the body is the ultimate weapon!
Vyrn: This is incredible! Who knew you were so famous?! I’m honored to meet ya, gramps! Aren’t you, (Captain)?!
Vyrn: Hey! Then, does that mean this rubble is just bits of rocks that you punched?
Soriz: Whoa...! Wait! Don’t! Don’t take one single step further!
Vyrn: What’s your problem?! What’s got your pants in a twist?!
Katalina: Don’t tell me...! Are there monsters lurking up ahead?
Soriz: Yes, precisely. You kids couldn’t possibly stand a chance against them. Just quit while you’re ahead...!
Vyrn: Heheh! I don’t appreciate you underestimating us! We can totally handle a little monster extermination, no problem!
Vyrn: (Captain)! Let’s show ol’ Beardy here what we’re made of!
Soriz: H-HEY! I said wait!!!
Katalina: What’s... going on...?
Soriz: Heheh... Oh well, I guess the cat’s out of the bag. What do you think, lizard?! Nice view, ain’t it?!
The rock wall had collapsed, thanks to (Captain) and company’s enthusiasm... As for the scenery that lay beyond it, well...
It was the mountain’s famous “VIP Open-Air Bath”...
According to Soriz, only the hot springs could relieve the fatigue of his training. But... he was clearly sneaking in without paying.
Vyrn: Whoa whoa whoa! What the hell is this...? Here I thought we met an awesome guy, but you’re just a sneaky old geezer!
Soriz: What’s the big deal? I guess a lizard like you wouldn’t understand what it means to chase your dreams!
Katalina: Ugh... You’re so masterfully skilled, yet completely lacking in moral fiber... What a waste.
Soriz: Heh! You wanna know what’s a waste? You, being a total stick in the mud!
Soriz: A pretty girl like you should relax and have a little fun once in a while! Now lend me your wallet!
Katalina: HEY!!! Y-You swine! G-G-G-Give that back...!!!
Soriz: Nope! This money’s wasted on a stiff like you! Hahaha!
Katalina: Give it back! I mean it! Y-You insolent churl!!! I’m gonna beat some common decency into you!!!
Vyrn: Siiigh... We always seem to find the weirdos, don’t we...
Vyrn: Oh hey, it’s Rosetta. Aren’t you supposed to be watching the ship...?
Rosetta: Teehee! It was getting late, and you guys weren’t back yet, so I got worried and decided to come find you.
Rosetta: Hey, Captain. This place is famous for its hot springs, right? Aren’t you a little curious?
Soriz: Hey, now! What the hell is this?!
Soriz: Hey, lizard! Is this lady with you?
Vyrn: What is it now?! Rosetta? Yeah, she’s one of us! She’s our friend!
Soriz: Ohohoho... You should have told me you had such an exquisite flower in your group!
Rosetta: Oh my, Leader. Is this bearded gentleman a new friend of yours?
Soriz: If the stunning lady so wishes, I would gladly join your little group of friends!
Choose: Teach me how to chase my dreams!
Katalina: Oh no you don’t! He’s the last person you should be asking, (Captain)!
Choose: Teach me some fighting techniques!
Vyrn: Yeah! It’ll definitely be reassuring to have you on our side! Even if you ARE a scumbag...Continue 1
Soriz: Well then, it’s decided...
Soriz: I’m in your care, Ms. Stick in the Mud! And especially yours, Ms. Radiant Flower!
Soriz: Now, let’s see... Since I know all the hot springs in the area, why don’t I show you all around?
Rosetta: Teehee! I look forward to it! Come on, Leader. It’s good to take a nice, hot bath and relax from time to time!
And so, (Captain) and company befriended the sleazeb... i mean, Soliz, and they departed for the skies once more.
