From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
Strong Yet Wise
At the Knickknack Shack, Vaseraga hands a parcel to Sierokarte. When the crew return from their delivery mission and explain that the neighboring town's under lockdown, Vaseraga accompanies them on a second visit to investigate.
Vyrn: Over there, Spiky!
Vaseraga: I've got this.
Lyria: Ah! Vaseraga, behind you!
Vaseraga: That should be all of them.
Vyrn: Phew... Spiky's a powerhouse as always!
Lyria: Yeah! He took them all down with one swing!
Vaseraga: Taking out a bunch of monsters is nothing to gloat about.
Vyrn: Hey, what is it you call your scythe again?
Vaseraga: Great Scythe Grynoth.
Vyrn: Right! I bet you're the only one that can swing around a huge weapon like that!
Lyria: They got a few attacks in from behind though. You didn't get hurt, did you?
Vaseraga: I'm fine. My body is—
Vyrn: Augmented! Right?
Vyrn: Well, I guess we've done our part for this monster cleanup assignment. Time to report it back at town!
(Captain) and company return to town to report an assignment completed.
Lyria: Looks like our next job is to deliver this package to the neighboring town.
Vyrn: Boy, the assignments are just flooding in today, huh. The town doesn't seem to be that far; let's get right on it!
Vaseraga: The neighboring town, eh?
Lyria: Huh? Are you going off somewhere, Vaseraga?
Vyrn: That's not the way to the town!
Vaseraga: The job's a simple delivery. I'm sure you guys can handle it alone.
Vyrn: You're not coming along, Spiky?
Vaseraga: I'll be waiting in this town.
Be careful out there.
Be careful out there.
Vyrn: And off he goes. I guess Spiky just needs his alone time every so often.
Lyria: Well, he does have to take care of his Society business too.
Lyria: Anyway, let's finish up the mission at hand!
All alone now Vaseraga pays a visit to the Knickknack Shack in the corner of town.
Sierokarte: Ah, Vaseraga! Good to see you!
Vaseraga: You're around today? Good.
Sierokarte: (Captain) and the others aren't with you? That must mean...
Vaseraga: Right. The usual, please.
Vaseraga hands a parcel to Sierokarte.
Sierokarte: Sure thing. I'll make sure it gets there.
Sierokarte: You know, some of them are really close by. Why not meet them directly?
Vaseraga: No thanks.
Sierokarte: Okay, it's your call.
Sierokarte: But there is something I think you should know...
Vyrn: Spiky! Oh, you're here too, Knickknack?
Vaseraga: Did you finish the job?
Lyria: We couldn't get into the town.
Vaseraga: Hm? Why not?
The crew explains that soldiers have surrounded the entire perimeter of the neighboring town.
Vyrn: They're not letting in any outsiders.
Vaseraga: The town is on lockdown?
Sierokarte: So it's finally come to that, huh?
Lyria: Siero? What's wrong?
Vaseraga: Tell me what you know, Siero.
Sierokarte: Sure. I was going to tell you earlier, but...
Sierokarte: Lately there's been conflict between the people and the soldiers of that town. Disputes have been breaking out all too often.
Vyrn: Are those the soldiers that were surrounding the town?
Sierokarte: It seems so. The situation's gotten pretty serious lately.
Lyria: The people of the town must have it hard...
Sierokarte: With trade cut off, I'd imagine every town in the region is affected.
Vyrn: Hmm... That can't be good.
Vaseraga: Will you be going, (Captain)?
Lyria: Of course! We can't just sit idly by when people need help!
Vyrn: What's wrong? You don't sound too sure.
Lyria: We have to help people who are suffering!
Vyrn: Lyria's right! Let's go!Continue 1
Vaseraga: I will accompany you.
Lyria: Yay! It's always reassuring with Vaseraga around!
Sierokarte: So you'll be joining this one?
Vaseraga: Yes. I can't ignore what's happening.
Vaseraga: Besides, I need to do my part as a member of the crew. They need my help now, and I'm here to give it.
Sierokarte: I see. Well, do be careful.
Lyria: The town should come into view soon.
Vaseraga: Stop. I hear something.
Vyrn: Sounds like something's going down. Is it coming from the town?
Lyria: Ah! Over there!
Soldier 1: Prepare yourselves!
Agent 1: There's no way we're gonna just bow down and give in to your demands!
Soldier 1: You insolent cur!
Lyria: This looks pretty serious.
Vaseraga: This must be what Siero meant when she mentioned a struggle between the soldiers and the people.
Agent 1: Cripes! How many are there? No matter, we'll just have to bring out our ace in the hole!
Soldier 1: What the—They've unleashed monsters!
Soldier 2: Aagh! What have you done?
Lyria: Oh no!
Vaseraga: There'll be many pointless deaths if this keeps up.
Vyrn: We need to get in and stop those monsters now!
Strong Yet Wise: Scene 2
An injured soldier guides the crew to the baron's mansion, explaining that the citizenry have hired agents in revolt against the baron. As Vaseraga argues with the soldiers about why the common folk would do such a thing, word comes in of an attack by agents and monsters.
Agent 1: Who in the skies are you guys?
Agent 2: Hey! This is our cue to hightail it out of here!
Vyrn: Ah! They're getting away!
Vaseraga: Let them. Taking care of the injured comes first.
Soldier 1: Ngh...
Lyria: You're right!
Hey, are you okay?
Hey, are you okay?
After treating the wounds of the injured soldiers, the crew pays a visit to the baron's mansion in town.
Soldier 1: Thank you. You've saved our lives.
Vyrn: Oh, it's nothing. Can you tell us what the deal is with all this fighting?
Lyria: The streets we passed by on the way here all felt so empty. There was hardly anyone around...
Soldier 1: For some time now, certain groups have been rising up in revolt against the baron. Civil unrest has been at an all-time high.
Soldier 1: They've been calling in bloodthirsty agents. Rumor has it they might even be plotting the baron's assassination.
Lyria: Assassination? My goodness!
Vyrn: They were even using monsters back there. Those guys are serious.
Soldier 1: The baron's considering countermeasures, of course, but he still needs more time.
Lyria: Countermeasures? What kind?
Soldier 2: Hey! Don't tell 'em that!
Soldier 1: A-ah! Sorry.
Soldier 1: Point is, we're doing our best to preserve the peace in town, but their attacks never stop.
Soldier 2: At this rate the citizens are going to get caught in the cross fire.
Vyrn: Oh, that can't be good!
Soldier 1: But you folks are pretty tough! What do you say to teaming up with us?
Lyria: Umm, we're...
Vyrn: Hm? What's wrong, Spiky?
Vaseraga: My companions here couldn't even enter the town earlier. Are you the ones that closed it off?
Soldier 1: Indeed, that was us.
Vaseraga: What for?
Soldier 2: Well, we can't afford to have ruffians coming in from the outside and taking advantage of the situation.
Soldier 1: We also don't want to risk letting the leader of these revolts escape.
Lyria: What's wrong, Vaseraga?
Vaseraga: Tell me: why are the people revolting to begin with?
Soldier 1: Huh? What is it you're trying to say?
Vaseraga: Why would the baron's people want him dead? There must be a reason.
Soldier 2: Why you...
Soldier 1: Are you trying to accuse us of something?
Vyrn: H-hey, Spiky! I think you might be ruffling their feathers...
The soldiers grow suspicious under the pressure of Vaseraga's interrogation.
Soldier 2: You're with those agents, aren't you!
Soldier 1: You spies!
The previously friendly soldiers suddenly change tune and now draw their swords at the crew.
Vyrn: Wait right there! We aren't—
Soldier 1: Silence! Who hides their face beneath a helmet to begin with? We should've suspected something was up!
Vaseraga: You do have a point...
Lyria: Vaseraga, no! Don't say that!
Soldier 2: Silence!
Vyrn: Whoa, what's going on over there?
Soldier 3: We need backup!
Soldier 1: What's going on?
Soldier 3: The agents are attacking again! This time they've come in full force, and they've even brought their monsters! We must go at once!
Soldier 2: Dammit! Move out!
Lyria: Did they say monsters are in town again?
Vyrn: That can't be good. We should go take a look.
Vaseraga: Hold it!
Vyrn: Make it quick, Spiky! The clock's ticking!
Vaseraga: What do you plan on doing when you get there?
Choose: We're gonna fight!
Vaseraga: Fight who? And to what end?
Vyrn: Oy... Spiky, you've been kinda freaking me out ever since we got here. What's gotten into you?
Choose: We'll deal with the monsters!
Lyria: Yeah, we wouldn't want any of the townspeople to get caught up in it all!
Vaseraga: I suppose that's fine...Continue 1
Vaseraga: Never make it your goal to crush the opponent. Violence in the name of justice loses all meaning.
Lyria: Umm... Vaseraga?
Vaseraga: Never forget what it is you wield your power for.
Soldier 1: Don't let them break through!
Agent 1: Send in everything we've got!
Soldier 2: Unaagh!
Vyrn: This is awful!
Lyria: We have to do something!
Vaseraga: Stay calm. Don't forget what we're here to do.
Lyria: Ah... right! Let's deal with the monsters first!
Vyrn: Right! Even the agents that have been called here are getting out of control! Let's do this!
Strong Yet Wise: Scene 3
Vaseraga fells the monsters with powerful swoops, protecting a young child from harm. The soldiers and agents begin to perceive Vaseraga as a threat and decide to take him out first.
Vyrn: (Captain)! They're coming in from the right!
Lyria: Eek! Now they're behind us!
Vaseraga: There's too many of them.
Vyrn: They just keep coming!
Lyria: There must be something we—
Lyria: There's a little boy stuck over there!
Vyrn: Lyria! Watch out!
As Lyria dives in to protect the child, a savage monster swings its claws at her.
Vaseraga: Lyria, watch the kid.
Vaseraga: Come at me! I will be your opponent!
Agent 1: Oof!
Agent 2: They're too strong. What's with these guys?
Agent 1: Watch out for the big guy in armor! If anything, we have to stop him first!
Soldier 1: Just as I thought! That lot's nothing but trouble!
Soldier 2: We ought to take out that armored brute first!
Vyrn: What's going on? The soldiers and the agents are coming after us!
Vaseraga: Things are gonna get rough. Stay sharp, (Captain).
Strong Yet Wise: Scene 4
Surrounded on all sides, (Captain) and crew find themselves in a pinch. Vaseraga demonstrates a force greater than ever before and pushes back entire waves of enemies—the impact from which puts him in severe pain.
Soldier 1: Th-they're too strong!
Agent 1: How do we even stand up to them?
The soldiers and agents all flinch at Vaseraga's overwhelming power.
Agent 2: Crud!
Soldier 3: Th-this is no time to falter! We press on together!
Soldier 2: R... Raah!
With the child still in her arms, Lyria is knocked away by the onslaught of soldiers.
Vyrn: Uh-oh! (Captain)!
(Captain) rushes in and pulls Lyria up by the arm.
Lyria: (Captain)... Thank you!
Vyrn: We'd better try and keep up...
Agent 1: Don't fall behind the soldiers.
Agent 2: Let's do this!
Things suddenly take a turn for the worse when the crew breaks formation as the enemy comes pouring in from all sides.
Vyrn: Lyria! (Captain)! Where are you?
Lyria: What do we do now, (Captain)? Vyrn's—
Agent 1: That lizard's with the armored freak and the others, right?
Soldier 1: You, the girl with the blue hair... If only you and your lot hadn't interfered!
Vaseraga: Great Scythe Grynoth!
Vaseraga: Drink in my blood and let your soul shape my blade!
Agent 1: Rgh!
Soldier 1: Ungh!
Vyrn: Wh-what's happening?
Vaseraga swings his scythe like never before and summons a whirlwind, sweeping the surrounding enemies off their feet.
Lyria: Vaseraga! He's so... powerful...
With child in arm, Lyria hides among the rubble.
(Captain) stands over the two, ready to defend them at a moment's notice.
Before long, the fierce wind dies down.
Lyria: Hm? Vaseraga?
Vaseraga: Ungh... Gah!
Lyria: Vaseraga! Are you okay?
Lyria: Oh no!
The child clutches Lyria tightly as she runs over to Vaseraga.
Child: Mm... Uhn! Sob!
Lyria: Hey, what's wrong? Everything's okay. There's no need to cry.
The child's hysterical wailing breaks the silence that fell upon the battlefield.
Lyria: Wait, Vaseraga! Where are you going?
Vaseraga does not respond to Lyria's desperate call.
Lyria: Wait, please! Vaseraga! Why won't you wait?
Vaseraga appears to be in great pain as he limps away from the scene.
