Travis, observing the animation you provided: daylight on our moon lasts about two weeks in a single location--? I think my character's moon will need to rotate.Tidal locking of the moon to the planet doesn't mean the sun wont rise and set. The so-called "dark side" of the moon does see the light from the sun as it orbits the earth. If you have body tidally locked to a large planet, the planet will always be in the sky, but the sun will still rise and set. To what extent each will be present will depend on the location on the satellite.
Check out this basic animation and watch the moon as it orbits the earth
