After the Rite of Rising failed to revive the Goddess, she left in self-exilement Garreg Mach and after traversing through Fódlan's Fangs as part of her exilement, eventually settled on the ocean’s salted shores who would later become Nuvelle territory.
Noa was well known for her magic; upon the founding of House Nuvelle, she created a spell to conceal the true nature of her Crest to protect her and her descendants, fearful that someone may exploit their bloodlines. This spell caused her Crest to appear as Macuil's instead, whom already existed within the Empire.
Noa is both a masculine and feminine given name as well as a surname. In Israel, the name Noa (Hebrew: נוֹעָה) is a popular name for girls. It is a biblical name: in the Hebrew Bible, Noa was one of the Five Daughters of Zelophehad. It is an English version of the name nawaf in Arabic, meaning "higher" or "genius".
- Noa is the namesake of Noa Fruit.
