Sage of Fluone
Gloria is at attention and helps treat Laby once she arrived in Elrianode, taking the child off of Artea's hands. When Laby awoke, Gloria tried checking her condition, which had healed surprisingly fast. When Laby felt better she quickly ran out of the room to seek Gaia, Gloria attempted to pursue but was easily outpaced. When she caught up, Denif asked if Darkmoon had finished healing her but Gloria explains that her injuries had already healed beforehand.
She and the other priestesses listen to Laby's story. When Laby began to speak of the three mornings she experienced, the priestesses deduced they were related to the major El events. They speculate Elsword involvement in the El's restoration may have freed her. Darkmoon suggests the possibility Laby may be a demon, prompting Laby to speak of Calonne and the other demons in North Fluone, news which took the priestesses by surprise, news which filled Gloria with dread. Gloria reflects on the horrors of when the demons took Darkmoon's El and their kidnapping in Lanox. She sees all the pain the demons had caused her and her sister and feels she can't forgive them. Sasha calms her down and expresses that they trust Lu who is a demon and that both humans and demons are capable of both good and evil. Gloria thanks Sasha for her words and starts to put some trust in Laby.
Answer to Belief
When Laby came out to tell them the truth about Nisha, many of them were confused, but Gloria was the first to assert her trust in the girl's words.

She noticed that the strain had lightened since Rosso's arrival. They tell Ignia that she should make amends with Rosso but they are cut short when Laby returns from her training. Gloria comes to greet the returned girl.
Meeting the El Search Party
When the El Search Party neared Elrianode all the master and priestesses went to undo the seal to allow them back to Elrios. When they did so, things were in chaos as Henir's realm had descended into disarray. Nobody could move from their spot except Laby who volunteers to aid the El Search Party. 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 the Moon Priestess sacrificed herself to make the small Moon El. Denif informs that anything less than full control over the element would result in the draining of ones life force as with the First Moon Priestess. 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.
Gloria in Elrianode.
- In Gloria's original portrait from Lanox, Darkmoon's thumb was fixed onto her sleeve and would appear in quest dialogue, even when Darkmoon wasn't present.
- 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.
