From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
How a Hero Is Born
(Captain), Vyrn, and Walder have a serious discussion aboard the Grandcypher to come with a catchy opening speech for Walder's homecoming. With the crew's help, he finally comes up with an entrance worthy of showing his childhood friend, Jade.
(Captain) and the crew are heading for Treetop Isle to help deal with a monstrosity that has appeared on the island.
Walder is in the middle of a serious meeting being held in one of the Grandcypher's cabins.
The other seats are occupied by Vyrn and (Captain).
Walder: All right, I like that idea. But I'm afraid it might be a little too minimalistic.
Vyrn: Ah, but that's the essence of it all. What comes after that is your chance to speak off the cuff.
Walder: You mean like appealing to the needs of the crowd depending on their demographics?
Vyrn: Yeah, yeah. You gotta read the mood, ya know? Smooth ad-libbing is the key to winning them over!
Walder: No problemo. But I'm gonna need a catchy entrance to grab their attention.
Vyrn: Hm... That's a good point too. What do you think, (Captain)?
Choose: I agree.
Walder: Well, if (Captain) says so, then that's good enough for me.
Vyrn: Huh? Wait, who are you agreeing with? I'm just going with the flow of the conversation, you know...
Choose: Forget the ROI.
Walder: Huh? Are-oh-eye? What are you talking about, (Captain)?
Vyrn: Haha, trying to spoof Walder with fancy words, (Captain)? I was only going with the flow of the conversation. I don't get this are-oh-eye either, but it sounds cool!
Choose: I don't get it.
Walder: What did you just say?
Walder: That's it! Good idea, (Captain)! Why don't we go with that?
Vyrn: Nice! I was just going with the flow of the conversation, but I'm glad we're all somehow in agreement!Continue 1
Lyria: Hello! Lunch is ready. What are you doing in there?
Walder: Thanks for the heads up. We're in the middle of a meeting right now.
Lyria: Oh! I didn't mean to interrupt.
Walder: Heh, no worries. Actually could we get your opinion on something? We need to ad-lib but in a minimalistic way.
Lyria: Um... What in the world were you three discussing...
Vyrn: See? She's totally confused too. Even I don't know what we're talking about anymore.
Lyria: Ah! Could it be that you're having a meeting to decide on poses?
Vyrn: Whoa! You mean you actually understood him after all?
Lyria: Teehee. Gotcha! (Captain) told me about it earlier this morning.
Walder: Hah-hah-hah! Well played! Lyria has the trappings of a ranger!
Walder: So before we land back at my home, I wanted to come up with a new intro speech for my pose.
Walder: Everyone's unsettled by this weird monstrosity thing, so I'm hoping to show them my dependability!
Vyrn: Yep, yep. Gotta calm 'em down! That's why we're here coming up with ideas.
Lyria: I see. A pose to show how much you've grown on this journey...
Walder: Yeah, and I want to show it to Jade too! Man, just talking about it gets me all pumped up!
Walder: I'm a brave warrior who postpones everyone's lunch!
Walder: I'm Forest Ranger Walder!
Walder: Heh. Nailed it. What do you think, Lyria?
Lyria: Ahahaha... Um... That was something...
Vyrn: Hmm... Not the reaction we were looking for.
Walder: This calls for a big change in direction. I need to emphasize my maturation factor.
Lyria: Um... Maturation factor?
Lyria: By the way, Walder, why did you become a forest ranger?
Walder: Why, you say?
Walder: A ranger's job is to procure food from the wild. We live with nature, protect it, and sometimes conquer it.
Walder: I'm a ranger who happened to live in a forest, so... Boom! Forest ranger!
Lyria: Okay. I get that, but you also wore a swimsuit in the summer to protect the ocean, remember?
Walder: Ocean Ranger Walder, at your service!
Lyria: Heehee. And then there was the time you dressed up like a tree!
Walder: Tree? Excuse me, but that was a ghillie suit.
Walder: That's right! This outfit was made for me, the Holly Ranger Walder!
Vyrn: Oh yeah, you did do all that stuff! That proves you've grown. Why not try to fit that into your intro somehow?
Walder: I think you're on to something. Indeed I've crossed sea and snow. The world submits to me.
Walder: Then maybe that's how I should finish off my intro...
Lyria: Hm? You mean the part where you announce your name?
Walder: Yes. Are you ready for this?
Walder: Brave warrior of the forest, sea, and snow! The one and only Forest and Ocean and Holly—!
Walder: Er, Ghillie Ranger Walder!
Vyrn: Yeesh. You might wanna trim it down a little...
Walder: Nooo! The fruits of my many labors have backfired on me!
Lyria: You might want to add sky in there too now that you're a skyfarer...
Walder: Aaargh! How am I supposed to get over this hurdle?
Vyrn: Well, you should keep it short to make it impactful, yeah? We all agree it can't be too long.
Walder: Vyrn? That confident gleam in your eye leads me to think you've got a plan cooked up.
Vyrn: You bet I do! Now that we know your limits, let's think of cool words that fit somewhere in the middle!
Vyrn: Words like... Oh, I don't know, dragon ranger or ranger master!
Walder: Oho! What a complete 180! You sure have a way with words, partner!
Walder: Hey, wait. What if I started with a three-paragraph style speech and gradually accelerated into...
Walder: Bingo! All right, you guys! Pay attention, because a new legend is about to be—
Lyria: Oops! Sorry, my tummy can't wait anymore.
Vyrn: Haha, almost forgot about lunch! You up for a breather, Walder?
Walder: Aww... But I wanna do my ranger thing now...
Lyria: Mmm... I can smell the curry all the way from here.
Walder: C-curry? You didn't mention it was curry day!
Walder: Yaaahooo! Whoopee!
Vyrn: Wait for us! Come on, before it's all gone!
Lyria: Yeah! Let's go, (Captain)!
And so a new pose extolling Walder's newfound maturation is born.
The sprawling forest of Treetop Isle comes into view from the windows of the Grandcypher.
Walder's true growth is about to take a great leap forward in the trials to come.
