Key of the Starry Sky arcEdit
Note: Events in this arc occur only in the anime and do not constitute canon material.
Being the head archaeologist of the Archaeological Society, Jean-Luc is interested in both the Infinity Clock and the ruins where the parts of the Clock are located. Having heard rumors of Fairy Tail's journey, Jean-Luc approaches Lucy's group and tries to dissuade them from pursuing the Infinity Clock. However, upon learning Lucy's identity and resolution in following her father's dying wish, Jean-Luc, who seems to have known Lucy's father for some time in his life, has a change of heart and uses his team's Magic to return Natsu to his original size, before wishing them to succeed in their quest and find the Clock parts without damaging the ruins.
After the activation of the Infinity Clock, Jean-Luc and the Archaeological Society arrive at the guild of Fairy Tail searching for Lucy, but since she was kidnapped, they reveal to her guildmates that, during an excavation, the Clock hand was found by Lucy's father, so Jean-Luc as a member of the Neville family met Jude Heartfilia to ensure that Jude would take good care of the piece. After knowing that all the Clock pieces now belong to the Reborn Oración Seis, Jean-Luc reveals that the Magic of the Infinity Clock, Real Nightmare, is dangerous because it can distort the perception of the time for the people, but luckily when the Clock hand was found, they also discovered another artifact, a giant hammer, that can keep evil at bay. Jean-Luc entrusts the giant hammer into Erza's hands and leaves the task of stopping both Real Nightmare and the Reborn Oración Seis to Fairy Tail.
Jean-Luc stays back at the Fairy Tail guild and tries to find of a way to stop the Infinity Clock, along with Levy, by deciphering Neville's writings. After they are done, Jean-Luc reveals that the only way to stop Real Nightmare is to erase the carved seals of the Reborn Oración Seis members from the clock parts, which can only be achieved by defeating them, proving Happy's previous hunch to be correct. Levy then informs Warren of the information him and the guild found to save Lucy.
