Chapter 10: Velder is in danger
During the Demon invasion of Velder, demons poured out of the Earth El. Caught by surprised, the Demons successfully took siege of the palace from the inside. Among those demons, Scar, the General of the Dark-eyed Army sent his commanders Jin and In to retrieve the Earth Priestess. While Chloe and her troops took Velder, the demon twins fled with the priestess and headed to Lanox. Since then she was under the control of Scar. Artea was used to help in Scar's plans to build the Grand Cavern: Chasm of the Divided Land. With her control over the Earth El, she broke through the earth to build the large chasm while Ignia wore off anybody trying to go to the Fire Temple.
Chapter 19: A Broken World
Her role in the the creation of the Grand Cavern: Chasm of the Divided Land complete. Scar imprisoned the Earth Priestess deep inside the Fire Temple. The El Search Party tried to rescue Artea but before they could reach her, the cavern she was held in began to collapse. Fortunately Ignia came to the rescue and saved Artea. Once the Earth Priestess regained consciousness, she apologizes for her part in reviving the Demon God Sult, and she guides the El Search Party to the chasm where Scar's final plans were taking place. After the Demon General's defeat and the El Lady having sealed away Sult, Artea is left wondering about the El Lady's passing words, "The one who is free from El." she wonders if the El Lady has abandoned Elrios.
Chapter 20: Prophetic Mission
With all the El Priestesses gathered in Lanox, Elsword asks who exactly is the El Lady. Artea explains that the El Lady is the representative of the Goddess. Elsword also asks what Solace's title "Master of the Sun" even means. Artea explains that the El Masters are powerful Ellians who serve the El Lady, like a high priest. She along with the other Priestesses planned to go the Abyssal Ruins in the Distant Ruins to complete their prophecy. Once Sdeing had finished crafting heatproof armor for all the Priestess, Artea mentioned that she felt her's was too tight around the chest area, to Ignia's irritation. Once they finally reached the Abyssal Ruins, they performed their ritual which opened a pillar of light leading to the El Lady. As the group stepped through the gateway, just before Elsword departed, Artea called out for him. Telling Elsword to believe in himself and his friends before his disappeared into the light. With the ruins falling silent, the El Priestesses would make their separate ways back to their El, to protect it and pray from Elsword and his friends' safety.
Chapter 27: The Boy and the El
After Elsword chose to sacrifice himself to restore the El, the Earth El that Artea protected suddenly combined back with the other El in order to reform the original large El. Artea as well as the other Priestesses were all teleported to where the El combined, the newly reawakened city of Elrianode. There, Artea met with the Master of Water, Denif who had also just awaken with the city. She informed the El Master of what had gone on in Elrios over during his slumber. She told him about the El Search Party and how they had protected the Priestesses and the world.
When the El Search Party finally arrived to Elrianode, they were greeted as intruders by Denif, however Artea stepped in to tell him that the group were the heroes she had spoken about. She explained to the El Search Party that the El shards they protected had combined and they were transported here to Elrianode.
Chapter 29: Invasion of the Order
When Ain and Denif were speaking about the Henir's Order, Artea grew curious having never heard of the group in Elrios after the El Explosion. She observes the mysterious objects the El Search Party found in the Water Dragon Sanctum but cannot fathom how it has the power to transform humans into abominations of Henir. Denif replied that he too did not know and required the help of someone with potential expertise in the matter. The El Search Party soon realized that Glave was a suitable person to ask about the orb.
When the El Search Party brought back information about the device, the Seed of Life, Artea grew ever wary of the object, especially learning the news that it was tinkered with suggestion that object has even more dangerous potential then what they've seen.
Chapter 31: Interdimensional Colossus and...
When the El Search Party returned from the Debrian Laboratory, Lu told Denif about the Primal El and how the Dark El is a mirror of Elrios's El. Artea believes the group, reasoning that the Dark El must have been made with the Demon World, and seeing how the Demon World was created in response to Elrios, it only made sense.
Solace and Hernia arrived in response to the treat of an all out war for the El Tower. Hernia insisted on sacrificing herself to the El to keep is stable, however Denif insisted she now and all the El Priestesses arrived to convince her out of her plan. Artea explains that all the Priestesses have been training for generations for the day to protect the El. Artea reminds Hernia that she has selected the very first Priestesses to teach the ways of maintaining the El, while they were not able to perform their duties before the El Explosion. They had done everything they could in the aftermath, maintaining the El which the El Masters had left behind. They predecessors were not able to stop the need for the El Lady's sacrifice in the past but now, Hernia can trust them and does not have to deal with it on her own. Hernia realizes she had been blinded by her duties that she had ignored those around her that wanted to help. Hernia thanks the El Priestesses for making her realize her error. The Masters, Priestesses, and El Lady all prepare themselves for their duty to protect the El as Henir monsters soon begin to swarm the El Tower.
When Hennon turned into the Interdimensional Colossus, Denif called for everybody in the El Tower to help him place up a barrier. Using their power, they manage to surround the El Tower in a protective barrier to prevent monsters and the colossus from doing harm to it, and the El.
When the Interdimensional Colossus had been slayed by the El Search Party, things began to become more quite at the monster stopped attacking. The Masters and Priestesses were able to let down the barrier and the threat facing Elrianode had dissipated. Ventus thanks the Priestesses in his flirtatious way which makes Artea uncomfortable before Denif steps in to scold Ventus. Denif and Ventus both believed that the El Lady should not be bound by her duty as the sole protector of the El, the El Priestesses took on the role in the El Lady's place, stabilizing the El as a group.
Chapter 32: Recuperation
After the El Search Party left, Artea expresses a sense of guilt for letting the El Search Party help them so much. Denif assures Artea that they each have a role to play, and that theirs is to help keep the El stable. The group begin to talk about the past and everything since the El Explosion. Gloria notices Darkmoon staring off and asks her what it wrong. She felt a deep regret for having failed to protect the Moon El in Ara's village. Artea tells Darkmoon that even she was unable to protect the Earth El even though she tried her best. Denif eases the Priestesses and tells them to look towards the future and what they choose to do next.
Anduran breaks the tension and asks the group if they would want to help her prepare her signature vegetable stew. The group agreed and Artea pondered if there were ingredients in the surrounding area, Ignia jumped at the opportunity to help out Artea to look for ingredients. Before leaving, Artea had something to ask Master Denif.
Artea in Elrianode.
- In a trivia post posted by the North American Elsword Facebook page, it is revealed that Artea has a surprisingly large appetite that is described as being greater than both Ara and Elsword.
