Laby later thanks Darkmoon for helping her, Darkmoon asserting that even if Laby is a demon, they'll stand by her.
You and I Are One

Denif agrees and the girl jumps in, she does stop the monsters from swarming into Elrianode but the realm shifts, causing her and the El Search Party to fall into a fissure.
Chapter 43: Preparation
At around the same time the El Search Party all reunited back in Elrianode, Denif and the other present Masters met with the priestesses. At this meeting, Denif reveals to the priestesses the truth about the El Explosion, that is was Ebalon who caused the incident, as an agent of Henir's Order. Ignia wondered why it was that history only mentioned Solace and the El Lady. Denif tells her that they believed the world was not in a state to learn the truth, Ventus noting trust in the El Masters was already at an all time low that they essentially had to beg to make the Elemental El. The news made Darkmoon realize why the Moon El was so small, since the Moon Priestess was the sole person responsible for making it, which resulted in the loss of her life. Rosso saying they shouldn't feel pity, Ventus remarking how Rosso pressed on to create the Fire El through the tears of the Fire Priestess Fanelia. Denif informs that anything less than full control over the element would result in the draining of ones life force. Ventus finds is curious that the Sun Priestess survived, Denif remained silent, which makes him realize that Solace was aiding from the sidelines and noting is couldn't have been easy for the Sun Priestess. Gloria tells them that the Sun Priestess went into seclusion and was the one to seek out Moon Priestess candidates. Darkmoon noting it to be the reason the Moon and Sun Priestesses have a very close relationship and how they protected each other. Denif was glad to hear they did their duty to the end. Moving on to their current situation, Denif asks if Ventus had any new information about Henir's Order which he unfortunately did not. Artea was uncertain why the group would not make any significant actions till recently. Rosso brings up if they should inform the El Search Party which Denif decides against, choosing to continue their investigation separately.
Darkmoon was walking through the Water Dragon Sanctum alongside Master Rosso, attempting to restore the humanity of the mutated Henir's Order cultists to no avail. Rosso noticed Noah and becomes aggressive, but Darkmoon suspects the boy is among the recently arrived Landar Camp. She calms Rosso down and urges they report back to El Tower and Noah to also return. Before they could leave, Rosso notices the Henir's Order ring Noah had taken from Titania. Tensions rise as both Noah and Rosso were uncooperative but the situation is diffused by Ventus. Darkmoon heals Noah and we tells the Masters the truth, Darkmoon backing up Noah claim, sensing both Moon and Dark energy while healing him, but also notes the energies appears to be mutated. Ventus orders everybody back to check up with Denif.
Upon learning of Noah's identity, Denif took the masters, the boy, and Darkmoon to converse in secret. Noah fill them in about the imposter Ebalon. Though the masters were suspicious, Darkmoon's inspection of Noah's pendant proved to convince them. After learning that Noah had once again fallen unconscious, Darkmoon asked Rosso to to have the boy meet her when he awoke.
Noah meets with Darkmoon, sensing the boy's distorted auras, she'd been keeping an eye on him. She notes the mutated powers within him opposing one another, likely being the cause of his sporadic episodes of fatigue. Wanting to explore further, she asks to take Noah to an Elriabrunnr. The boy wondered why it was she was helping him, she responds with the will of the First Moon Priestess, Misty. She tells Noah that the priestesses revealed herself to have been a spy for Henir's Order and sacrificed herself to create the Moon El.
After taking the boy to the Elriabrunnr, she uses her healing magic on the boy, causing him to fall into a slumber. Upon waking up, she notices Noah's energies have stabilized. Noah tells her about the dream he experienced and the portion of his memory which still appeared to be blocked. Darkmoon wishes to do whatever she could to aid him.
The One Hidden
When new of Noah's appears reached Hernia, she was compelled to meet the boy, and Darkmoon was also keen on having her meet him as well. Realizing she is unable to pry into the boy's memories further, Darkmoon instead hopes the El Lady could help. Hernia, with Darkmoon's aid use their powers on the boy, enducing a slumber.
When the boy woke up, he told Darkmooon and the El Lady what he learned and later revealed the news to the Masters and Priestesses. Learning of a possible motivation for causing the El Explosion, the Priestesses ponder Henir's Order's recent attack on Elrainode, how it seemed hasty and impulsive. Darkmoon noting Hennon's proclamation to become the organization's strongest member. Learning of the order's actions toward both the El and Dark El, Noah is more determined to got the Demon Realm than ever.

Gloria and Darkmoon's original portrait.
Darkmoon in Elrianode.
- The Sun and Moon Priestesses of the past had a particularly close relationship compared to the other Priestesses who wound up being fairly independent of one another, this is a likely explanation for why Gloria and Darkmoon's El Priestess attire prior to Elrianode are so similar.
