Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Prior to the events of the game, she encouraged Roger to set out on his own after his father did not choose him as the successor of Atelier Borthayre. The two got married and explored the mysterious paintings before having Lydie and Suelle.

After her death, a fragment of her soul ended up inside of The Heavenly Flower Garden in a similar process to what happened to Neige. She now lives inside a replica of the atelier inside the painting. Due to the quality of magical paints used to create the image, she will soon disappear. She is able to travel between paintings for a short period of time.

When Lydie and Suelle first enter The Heavenly Flower Garden, they see her from behind and chase after her. She does not notice them and the twins lose sight of her.

Later on, she visits Etel Nepica at the same time the twins are investigating it. Just as she realizes her time is up in the painting world she notices Lydie and Suelle. Honnete calls out to the girls just before vanishing. The twins quickly realize she is a part of the painting in their basement and set out to meet her.

Honnete is finally reunited with her family when they come to visit her after restoring The Heavenly Flower Garden. Knowing their time is limited, she tells Roger of her condition but keeps it a secret from Lydie and Suelle. She begins helping the twins by providing materials she picks up on her travels.

Some time later, black creatures called Remplir start attacking Honnete from The Black Horizon. The twins go into the painting and defeat the Remplir Core to stop them. When the girls return she reveals her condition.

Later, when Lydie and Suelle reach S rank, they report to Honnete that they could keep their promise.

In the normal ending, one year later she has faded away and the girls are working hard at achieving their dreams.

In the true ending, the twins create the Pastels of Unity which stabilizes her existence. One year later she is shown alongside Roger saying goodbye to the twins as they set off on a journey.
