Scenario:Vermeil - The Sobbing Knight
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
The Sobbing Knight
While taking a walk, the crew hear a loud scream coming from a restaurant. They meet Vermeil, a man whose right eye will not stop crying. It's a condition, or so he says. Vermeil joins the crew, hoping to find out how the crew can smile in even the worst situations.
The crew is taking a stroll when a loud shriek suddenly pierces the calm.
???: Waaaaaah! It wasn't me, I didn't do anything!
Vyrn: Do you hear that? Sounds like somebody's in trouble.
Lyria: It's coming from that restaurant over there!
(Captain) and company rush toward the restaurant.
Sobbing Man: Hm?
Lyria: Huff, huff. What's wrong? Is everything all right?
Sobbing Man: Who? Me? I'm fine, why do you ask?
Lyria: Oh but we heard someone cry out just now. That wasn't you?
Sobbing Man: Crying? Coming from me?
Sobbing Man: Hehe, that's a good one miss.
Sobbing Man: But it's unwise to insult a knight. Someone worthy enough to be a knight would never cry in public.
Vyrn: Hey, hey, what are you talking about? I can see the tears in your right eye you know.
Sobbing Man: Ah, this is simply a condition that I was born with. The tears never stop for some reason.
Vyrn: That's called crying!
Sobbing Man: My my, I suppose tragedy is too complex for a lizard to understand.
Vyrn: I ain't no lizard! I'm Vyrn! And I know what tragedy means!
Sobbing Man: Hahaha, well that may be, but take a look over there. Isn't that young man over there the one you should be worried about?
Young Man: Sniff. I didn't steal any money, honest! You have to believe me!
Shopkeeper: Don't pretend like you didn't do it you rotten punk! You're going to answer to my fist!
Vyrn: Woah, chill out mister!
Lyria: Yes, please calm down. Can you tell us what happened?
Shopkeeper: Huh? You've got eyes don't you? It's exactly what it looks like. Or maybe you're all in cahoots with this thief too!
Lyria: No sir, we just came over to see what the fuss was about. We wouldn't dare to steal anything.
Vyrn: This shopkeeper's a real pain in the butt.
Even though the whole crew is being accused of stealing, everyone calmly smiles.
The situation piques this man's interest.
Sobbing Man: (... Hm, they immediately try to diffuse the situation without violence. I wonder if that will really work... )
Instead of calming down, the shopkeeper only grows angrier and more suspicious. The man decides that it's time to step in.
Sobbing Man: Seriously, did you get up on the wrong side of the bed today?
Sobbing Man: This person, that person, you accuse anyone who even happens to glance at you. It's practically a witch-hunt.
Shopkeeper: Oh yeah? And what are you gonna to do about it?
Sobbing Man: I'm going to give the ones you should be accusing a stern warning.
The man draws his saber as he speaks.
Restaurant customer: ...!
A group of rowdy ruffians drink nearby. The man pierces one of their bags and a river of rupies flow out onto the floor.
Shopkeeper: Ah! That's my money! So it was you punks!
Shopkeeper: Wahaha, sorry about what happened earlier. Order whatever you like, this one's on me!
Accepting the gracious offer, the man named Vermeil and the crew sit down for a meal.
As the meal goes on, the crew can't help but notice Vermeil's right eye.
Vermeil notices the curious glances and stops eating. He begins his tale while staring off into the distance.
Vermeil: Please don't get the wrong idea. It's not because I'm sad or miserable.
Vermeil: I resent these tears that flow for no reason. They belong to my other self, who I'm searching for.
Vermeil: I was born with a right eye that wouldn't stop crying.
Vermeil: One day, I met a renowned fortune-teller in hopes of curing my condition.
Fortune-teller: Ahhh... I see you carried a heavy burden in a previous life.
Fortune-teller: Yes... You caused a terrible tragedy to happen and the soul you aggrieved lingers on in this lifetime.
Fortune-teller: As long as this soul is not found and healed, your tears will never stop flowing.
Vermeil: I've believed those words ever since. I've been hopping from island to island, chasing after this suffering soul.
Lyria: What kind of person are you looking for?
Vermeil: I don't know. My only clue is that it's a woman whose left eye is always crying like mine.
Vyrn: Wow, that's a total mystery.
Vermeil: Well, how should I put this. I think all of you are more mysterious.
Vyrn: What are you talking about, you big baby?
Vermeil: That's exactly what I mean Vyrn. Why do all of you always have a smile on your faces?
Vermeil: Even in the outrageous situation back there, you never once turned a sour face.
Vermeil: Hehe, you guys are one of a kind. How can you smile all the time?
The crew look at each other and laugh. (Captain) turns to Vermeil with a smile and asks him a question.
Choose: Do you really want to know?
Vermeil: Yes, please tell me your secret.
Lyria: Heehee, there's no secret to it. If you followed (Captain) you'd understand what I mean.
Vermeil: Follow? What exactly-
Choose: It's because we're the same.
Vermeil: Um, the same?
Lyria: Yep, that's right. (Captain)'s saying there's nothing different about us.
Vermeil: Nothing different? So that means you're also...Continue 1
Vyrn: Hehe we're on a journey too. You're an interesting guy, so you might as well come along!
Vermeil's face brightens at Vyrn's suggestion.
Vermeil: I'm interesting, huh? That's the first time anyone's ever said that about me.
Vermeil: Well, how could I say no to your infectious smiles.
Vermeil: Hehehe. You people truly are one of a kind.
And with that, the knight in red who can't seem to stop crying joins your crew.
