From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
She Who Basks in Blessings
(Captain) and the crew take a job from the Knickknack Shack to deliver parcels to various islands. Seeing how tired everyone is after they finish, Zahlhamelina invites them to rest in her home village. The crew accepts, and sets a course for her home.
The party accepts a job from the Knickknack Shack to make deliveries all across the islands.
With many islands to visit, not to mention plenty of items to deliver, the party finds itself qute busy.
Vyrn: Whew, that was the last of the stuff we needed to deliver, right?
Zahlhamelina: Yes, I’ve just had it confirmed. We’re all done.
Lyria: Wonderful! Then we delivered all the things the Knickknack Shack asked us to deliver.
Vyrn: And man, that sure was tricky, making sure all the right things go to the right places without getting mixed up!
Lyria: But they were all so happy to receive the deliveries!
Lyria: But...I am a bit tired, to tell the truth.
Zahlhamelina: Hang in there, Lyria! Let’s go back to the inn and get some rest!
Zahlhamelina: You look pretty tired, too, (Captain)... Don't push yourself too hard now, okay?
Vyrn: Yeah. Let’s take a nice, long break.
Zahlhamelina: Working too much is bad for your health. I think some rest would do us good.
Zahlhamelina: ...Oh, that reminds me! If it's okay, why don't we all head to my home island?
Zahlhamelina: It's very laid-back there, so I think it will be a good place to stretch out our wings and relax.
Lyria: Ooh! I would love to visit your home island!
Zahlhamelina: It should be harvest season right about now... Hee hee, in that case, I can cook you a nice meal nice with the fresh vegetables.
(Captain) accepts her proposal and points the ship in the direction of Zahlhamelina’s hometown.
She Who Basks in Blessings: Scene 2
(Captain) and the crew are interested in learning why the villagers call Zahlhamelina the "Sun Maiden", and one of the villagers begins to explain what happened to the island in the past. However, they are interrupted when they hear Lyria scream outside. They rush out in a panic, and discover that a monster has eaten the vegetables being harvested. (Captain) and the crew set off in pursuit of the monsters.
Zahlhamelina: Here we are. This is my village, and that house over there is my home.
Vyrn: Wow! Seems like a nice and quiet little place. Reminds me of Zinkenstill...
Villager: Oh my goodness... The Sun Maiden! The Sun Maiden has returned!
Zahlhamelina: It’s good to see you all! I just thought I’d come relax in the village for a bit.
Villager: Ah, what a wonderful idea! It's a good place for relaxing. And are these your friends?
Lyria: Yes! I'm Lyria. We're traveling together.
Villager: My, my, it's great to have visitors! Later, I’ll bring you some freshly picked vegetables.
Zahlhamelina: Wow! Thank you so much.
Zahlhamelina leads (Captain) and the others to her house.
Zahlhamelina: I haven't been back in awhile, but it seems the villagers have kept the place aired out for me. It's not musty at all!
Zahlhamelina: Please, (Captain), make yourself at home. I’m going to go out for a bit.
Lyria: Hm? Where are you going, Zahlhamelina?
Zahlhamelina: Since I’m here and all, I figured I could help with the harvest.
Lyria: Oh! Then I'd like to help, too! Is that okay?
Zahlhamelina: My, my. How nice of you. Hee hee, let's go together, then.
Lyria: Yay! Zahlhamelina and I are going to the fields! We’ll be back later!
(Captain) sees Lyria off on her way to the fields with Zahlhamelina, and then sits down to rest.
Villager: Sun Maiden! I brought you some fresh vegetables! ...Oh, she's not here.
Vyrn: If you’re looking for Zahlhamelina, she just left to help in the fields!
Villager: Well, I'll be! Our Sun Maiden's as hard-working as ever! I do wish she'd slow down.
Vyrn: ...By the way, what do you mean with that whole "Sun Maiden" thing?
Villager: Hm? Oh, she hasn't told you about that? Well, when she was a little girl...
Much to Vyrn and (Captain)'s interest, the villager starts to tell of Zahlhamelina's past.
Long ago, our idyllic little island was visited by a primal beast that could wander through time and space.
Because of this primal beast, the island was afflicted with a long spell of bad weather, and suffered a lot of damage because of it.
Villager: All the crops were destroyed...and we didn't know when the primal beast would get tired of playing with the weather.
Villager: The islanders were up against the wall...some started to give voice to a belief that we would be saved if we offered up a sacrifice.
Zahlhamelina—a young girl at the time—heard this idea.
She thought she could save the island if she sacrificed herself, so she went to confront the primal beast alone.
Vyrn: Wow, that's incredible... She was just a litle kid, right? And she had the courage to do that...
Vyrn: Wait, then how come she's still alive? How did she survive?
Villager: Well, that’s what makes our Sun Maiden even more incredible.
Lyria: Ahhh! Stop!
Vyrn: That's Lyria! What happened?
Startled by the screams, (Captain) runs outside and heads for the nearby fields.
Lyria: Stop! No! Don't eat those!
Zahlhamelina: Oh, dear! Did you eat all the vegetables in this pile?
Lyria: Ugh... I was looking forward to those vegetables! Oh! (Captain)! Help us chase them away!
Zahlhamelina: Sorry to bother you while you were resting, (Captain). Think you could lend a hand?
(Captain) nods at the clearly frustrated Zahlhamelina and tries to chase away the monsters.
She Who Basks in Blessings: Scene 3
In the middle of the night, (Captain) hears from Zahlhamelina about the time she used her newly-awakened fire magic to drive away the primal beast plaguing the island. She tells (Captain) that she believes the sun blessed her with its power. They hear a noise outside, and discover that the monsters from that afternoon have returned to eat the vegetables the villagers harvested. They set off to clear out the monsters.
(Captain) and Lyria go to bed early that night, worn out by the exhausting work in the fields.
Waking up thirsty in the middle of the night, (Captain) gets out of bed and heads to the kitchen for a drink of water.
Zahlhamelina: There we go, and...huh? What are you doing awake, (Captain)?
Zahlhamelina: ...Wondering about the smell? It’s rice bran. I was just pickling some vegetables.
Zahlhamelina: Oh, are you thirsty? Then how about some tea? Here, sit down while I make some.
Zahlhamelina steps away from her pickling, washes her hands, and makes (Captain) some tea.
Zahlhamelina: Here you go. It'll warm you up and put you right back to sleep.
Zahlhamelina: What's that? ...Sacrifice? Yes, that's right. I thought it would save the island.
Zahlhamelina: It was hard. I was scared to go see the primal beast...but it was harder to watch everyone on the island suffer.
Zahlhamelina: When I stood in front of it, my legs were shaking. But, at that instant...that's when I discovered my powers with fire.
Zahlhamelina: It was a long, long battle...for me, at least.
Zahlhamelina: I think the primal beast got tired of dealing with my powers. I was just about ready to collapse...when it left the island.
Zahlhamelina: ...And when those first rays of light finally broke through the clouds...
Zahlhamelina: I'll never forget how beautiful it was.
Zahlhamelina: And those rays of sun brought life back to the withered plants and forests... The sunlight truly saved us.
Zahlhamelina: As for my powers, I think the gods lent them to me so I could save my people.
Zahlhamelina: That's why I want to use my powers to help others.
Seeing Zahlhamelina smile, (Captain) understands why she is called the Sun Maiden.
Zahlhamelina: ...Huh? What's that sound?
(Captain) exchanges a glance with Zahlhamelina and together they go outside in search of the sound’s source.
Monster: Uwee, uwee...
Zahlhamelina: My goodness! Don't tell me you've gotten into the vegetables again!
Zahlhamelina: ...I know you're hungry, too, but if you eat all the vegetables what do you expect the villagers to eat?
Zahlhamelina: Sorry to keep you up, (Captain), but I need you to help me chase them off again.
She Who Basks in Blessings: Scene 4
(Captain) and the crew rest thoroughly before they depart from the island. The villagers come to see off Zahlhamelina, and she tells them that there's a task that she wants to accomplish, and returns to her journey with (Captain) and the crew.
(Captain) and Zahlhamelina chase off the monsters and take measures to make sure they don't come back again.
Thus, their days in the quiet village were nice and peaceful, but not without a fair amount of excitement.
Villager: It's sad to see the Sun Maiden leave us again...
Vyrn: Heh heh! It's natural to start longing for adventure again after awhile! Isn't that right, (Captain)?
Lyria: I had a lot of fun here! Can we come back again sometime?
Villager: Oh sure, any time! We’ll be here, waiting for our Sun Maiden!
Zahlhamelina: Thank you all. I’m so flattered to know you feel that way.
Zahlhamelina: There’s a job I want to do, and I’m going to do it. And so...I’m off!
The villagers wave goodbye, and Zahlhamelina once again leaves her beloved village...
...with the belief in her heart that by traveling with (Captain) and the others, she could maintain peace.
