Crimson Moon

Ultimate One. Of all the True Ancestors, Arcueid is said to be the closest to the Crimson Moon.

Also when Zepia transforms into TATARI, the Crimson Moon can be seen overhead. This is quite odd seeing as there is supposed to be a contract he made with Altrouge which entailed Altrouge turning him into TATARI until the next Night of the Crimson Moon 1000 years later…
