Scenario:Vajra - Canines Mean No Harm
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
Canines Mean No Harm
During a quiet stroll, Vajra talks about how she and Garjana grew up like siblings, and that the air in the area is very similar to that of her hometown. Fortunately her sharp sense of smell helps her sniff out monsters lurking about.
One early morning...
(Captain) wakes up earlier than usual and goes out on deck for some fresh air.
It turns out others are already there.
Vajra: Well, you're an early bird, (Captain)!
Choose: Just happened to wake up early...
Vajra: Doesn't the morning sun feel great?Continue 1
Vajra: Me and Gar are gonna go for a walk. You should join us!
Led by Vajra, (Captain) disembarks.
Vajra: Gar! We're going to that big tree down there!
Vajra is giddy with delight as she breaks into a sprint.
Garjana quietly and obediently runs beside her.
(Captain) follows after them.
Some distance ahead, Vajra turns around as if she's forgotten something.
Vajra: Sorry, (Captain). I got so caught up in the heat of the moment.
Vajra: Let's take a break.
Vajra plops down and sprawls out on the ground, which is still fresh with the glimmer of morning dewdrops.
Garjana sits down right beside her.
Vajra: I've gotta hand it to you, (Captain)!
Vajra: I'm impressed you're able to keep up with me and Gar!
Vajra: Hahah! You're amazing in your own way too, Gar!
Vajra lovingly hugs Gar and snuggles up to him.
Vajra: Ahahaha! That tickles! Hey!
Vajra: Ahaha! Gar, c'mon, hahaha!
Vajra's face is all sticky after a few good licks from Garjana's enormous tongue.
Still in each other's embrace, the two roll about on the ground in pure, unadulterated joy.
Vajra: Woo! Had enough yet, Gar? Teehee! Ahahaha!
(Captain) looks on with a hint of concern—
Concern that Garjana's massive size might be too much for Vajra to handle.
Vajra: Hm? (Captain)?
Vajra: Relax, I'll be fine! Gar's always careful not to put too much of his weight on me!
Vajra gives an amused smile before turning the tables and rolling on top of Garjana.
Vajra: I, on the other hand, can put all my weight on him, and Gar doesn't feel a thing!
Choose: You two get along so well.
Vajra: Of course! We've been together ever since Gar was born.
Vajra appears proud of the fact.
Vajra: In keeping with our tribe's traditions, Gar and I were raised like siblings.
Choose: You okay, Gar?
Garjana calmly licks (Captain)'s hand.
Vajra: In keeping with our tribe's traditions, Gar and I were raised like siblings.Continue 2
Vajra: There are still a lot of young pups back home.
As if recalling a precious memory, Vajra looks up into the skies and sniffs the fresh air.
Vajra: This island really takes me back to my hometown. The air, especially.
Vajra: It's definitely more lively here though.
(Captain) gives an understanding nod.
The forest feels exceptionally quiet this morning.
Vajra: Hm? Do you sense something in the brush?
Garjana goes into high alert.
As Vajra props herself up, Gar gets up right beside her. They carefully survey their surroundings.
Vajra: Watch out, (Captain)!
Canines Mean No Harm: Scene 2
After the scuffle, (Captain) and Vajra return to the Grandcypher to find it ransacked. Garjana tracks the scent to find three puppies fighting off monsters.
After dispatching the monsters, Garjana presses his nose into Vajra's hand as if to make a statement.
Vajra: Yeah. I got it.
Vajra: (Captain)! We need to return to the airship at once!
Vajra and Garjana make an about-face and bolt off, with (Captain) trying to keep up.
Vyrn: Ah! (Captain)! Where were you this whole time?
Vyrn greets (Captain) in a panic.
Vajra: Sorry, Vyrn. I had (Captain) come along for a walk.
Vyrn: That's fine, but we've got ourselves a mess here!
Vajra: So something happened?
Vyrn: Come on deck and see for yourselves.
It looks as if a hurricane just passed through, with items trashed all over the place.
Vajra: It's gonna take a while to clean all this up.
Vyrn: And this isn't all. The whole exterior's pretty beat up. Rackam was borderline hysterical.
Vajra: This is bad...
Vajra: Things were all fine when we headed out this morning though.
Vyrn: Yeah? That means this all happened just a little while ago.
Vajra: Yeah... Gar, can you look into it?
Vyrn: You have a plan?
Vajra: Gar can trace the scent.
Vyrn: Aha! We just need to pinpoint the culprit!
Vajra: Yep! Any bad boy or girl who does such a thing needs to be taught a lesson!
Vajra: Anything, Gar?
Vajra approaches Gar as he paces about.
Ah, (Captain), you're back!
Ah, (Captain), you're back!
It's Lyria's turn to run now as she comes out on deck.
Vyrn: What's gotten you into such a panic?
Lyria: I went to take a look inside...
Lyria: And the kitchen's a total mess too. Some food seems to be missing as well...
Vyrn: Just the kitchen?
Lyria: Yeah. The other rooms looked okay.
Vyrn: This sounds like one heck of a hungry thief.
Lyria: But didn't Rackam say the damage on the ship looks like it was done by monsters?
Vyrn: These are some seriously malnourished monsters.
Lyria: Sure seems like it.
Vajra's Voice: Guys! We need to chase the scent!
Vyrn: Looks like Big Dog's got a line on the culprit!
Vyrn: Let's follow 'em!
Vajra: So, Gar?
Vajra: So that's how it is, eh...
Lyria: It's amazing how Vajra can understand everything Garjana is trying to say!
Vyrn: Yeah, but look...
Vyrn: Hey, Vajra! You're lookin' kinda puzzled. Did you lose the scent here or something?
Vajra: No way! Gar's not one to lose track of his prey so easily!
Lyria: What's wrong?
Vajra: Monsters are definitely the culprit. But there are other scents mixed in here too.
Lyria: Other scents?
Vajra: Yes, it seems like my friends were here.
Lyria: Um, you mean your friends other than Gar?
Vajra: Yeah. They seem to be chasing the monsters...
Vajra: But they're still small. We need to hurry after them!
Garjana understands the gravity of the situation and quickens the pace.
Vajra: Hold it.
(Captain) and company turn around to find Vajra stopped in her tracks.
Vajra: I might as well ask everyone else on the island to help sniff out these monsters...
Garjana strongly tugs on Vajra's sleeve as if to discourage her.
Vajra: Sigh... You worry too much, Gar.
Vajra: Fine. I'll leave it to you.
Vyrn: Everything all right? You looked ready to do something just now.
Lyria: Who did you mean by "everyone else on the island"? Do you have lots of local friends?
Vajra: Oh, I haven't explained myself yet, have I? People call me a deity.
Lyria: So you're like a goddess?
Vajra: Hm, how should I put this...
Vajra: There's a spirit—a consciousness of sorts—dwelling in all things in nature.
Vyrn: Whaddya mean by "all things in nature"?
Vajra: I mean that literally. For instance, this rock, that tree, the water in that river, the wind...
Vajra: There's a spirit housed in everything.
Lyria: Wow... That's a wonderful way of looking at things.
Vyrn: And you can communicate with all these spirits?
Vajra: Yes, I can.
Lyria: That's incredible! How do you do that?
Vajra: Well, it's hard to put it in words...
Garjana suddenly looks up, and Vajra follows suit.
Vajra: It's close.
Vyrn: Is that him?
Puppy 1: Woof!
Puppy 2: Woof, woof!
Puppy 3: Grrr!
Vajra: Eka! Dvi! Tri!
Lyria: Are those cutie puppies your friends, Vajra?
Vyrn: Looks like they're trying to fight that monster in the back!
Vajra: Idiots! Don't you see how dangerous this is?
Vyrn: Darn it! We've got little critters all over the place to deal with too!
Vyrn: We've gotta take 'em out first!
Canines Mean No Harm: Scene 3
As things get dire in the battle, Vajra undergoes some sort of transformation to ensure the safety of her canine companions.
Vyrn: All righty! Now it's time to take out the big kahuna!
Vajra: Gar! Go in from the right!
Vajra herself plunges toward the monster's left flank.
Vajra: Eka, dodge to the left!
Vajra: Dvi, fall back!
Vajra: Tri, get on the left branch!
Vajra, seeing that Tri has lost its footing to a small crack in the ground, throws herself toward the puppy.
Lyria: Watch out, Vajra!
Garjana reels for a moment from the blow meant for Vajra before springing back to his feet.
Vajra: Sorry, Gar. Enough is enough—let's end this already.
Vajra takes a deep breath and closes her eyes.
Vyrn: What's going on?
Vajra: Defilers of the peace we hold dear in these lands...
Vajra: Shall know the watery retribution of my blade.
Canines Mean No Harm: Scene 4
Vajra loses consciousness after dispatching the monsters. Garjana explains that his master enacted spirit channeling earlier to access power significantly greater than her own—a feat that makes her vulnerable. Concerned for Vajra's well-being, he asks (Captain) to take care of her.
With the monsters defeated, Vajra appears somewhat detached yet tense as she calmly lowers her blade.
Vyrn: Um, Vajra?
Vajra: Gar, Eka, Dvi, Tri! Everyone okay?
As if a switch had just been flicked, Vajra returns to her usual self and rushes over to the dogs.
Vajra: Thank goodness the injuries are nothing serious.
Lyria: All's well that ends well!
Vajra: No, this is not well.
Vajra: I hope you puppies have learned your lesson.
Vajra: Sigh. Yeah, I know about that.
Vyrn: What are they sayin'?
Vajra: These pups aren't really supposed to leave the island we're from yet.
Lyria: But then why are they—
Vajra: The air on this island very closely resembles that of our homeland. That's their only excuse for coming here.
Vajra: They wandered aboard an airship where they bumped into monsters.
Vyrn: Ah, so they're the ones who chased off the monsters?
Vajra: Seems like it.
Lyria: Wow! Thank you so much for protecting the Grandcypher!
Vyrn: There wasn't much damage inside the ship other than the kitchen.
Vajra: Kitchen? Could such a large monster even fit in there?
Vyrn: Hm, that's a good point...
Vajra: Agh! I can't believe it!
Vyrn: What's wrong?
Vajra: The kitchen was all their doing... Sorry!
Vyrn: The pieces are all coming together now.
Lyria: Ahaha, they must've been really hungry.
Vajra: Shame on you pups!
Vajra: First you break tradition and now this...
Garjana walks over to support Vajra as her body teeters over.
Vyrn: What's wrong!
Vajra: Sorry, Gar... I think I pushed it... Hope you can take things from here...
Vajra falls unconscious.
Lyria: Vajra! How did this happen?
Vyrn: She gonna pull through?
Garjana: She's passed out from exhaustion.
Garjana: Vajra won't wake up for a while. Nothing a refreshing nap won't fix, of course.
Lyria: I knew that was your voice, Gar!
Vyrn: Big Dog! You can talk?
Lyria: That's incredible!
Lyria: But is Vajra going to be—
Garjana: Allow me to explain. But first, my master needs a more suitable place to rest.
Vyrn: Your master? You mean Vajra?
Lyria: Okay. Let's get inside first.
Back inside the Grandcypher, the crew puts the slumbering Vajra to bed.
Vyrn: She didn't even have to count sheep... Or puppies.
Garjana: I imagine she'll be asleep until nightfall.
Vyrn: Sure, no problem with that.
Lyria: She must've been really worn out.
Vyrn: Sure seems like it.
Vyrn: What's her deal anyway?
Garjana: She performed spirit channeling in the battle earlier.
Lyria: Spirit channeling?
Garjana: Yes. She draws a spirit into her body, temporarily suppressing any trace of her own personality and consciousness.
Vyrn: So that's why she was acting so different during the battle.
Garjana: Spirit channeling allows my master to unleash power of an entirely different magnitude.
Lyria: Wow! That sounds like a really useful skill to have!
To the surprise of the impressed crew, Garjana solemnly shakes his head.
Garjana: I would prefer my master refrain from using it.
Lyria: Um... Is it because she gets so tired?
Garjana: This is the first time she's used it outside our island.
Garjana: I surmise she was able to use it here only because the air is so familiar.
Garjana: Otherwise it is no easy feat.
Vyrn: Yeah? I had no idea it took such a toll on her.
Garjana: For it to work, one needs not only a sound mind and body, but also a strong heart.
Lyria: A strong... heart?
Garjana: In other words, the complete trust and willingness to make yourself entirely vulnerable.
Garjana: My master gives herself over too easily.
Lyria: And that scares you because of how precious Vajra is to you, I see.
Vyrn: Yeah, that definitely sounds like cause for concern.
Garjana: I will protect my master at any cost, no matter what.
Lyria: I'm sure it's the same for Vajra.
Vyrn: Whaddya mean, Lyria?
Lyria: She used spirit channeling to protect Gar and the puppies.
Vyrn: Oh, that's right. She used it right when Big Dog got hurt.
Lyria: I'd prefer Vajra not use it either if it's so risky...
Lyria: But I have to say I really admire her strength and kindness.
Lyria smiles softly at the resting Vajra.
Garjana: I hope you'll continue to be good friends with my master.
Garjana bows deeply to (Captain) and company.
Lyria: Teehee. Likewise.
They look down to find a most soothing spectacle.
The three puppies snuggle right up to Vajra for warmth, the din of their peaceful snores filling the air.
