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.
