The Surface is the outer layer of Earth where the Mud People have lived ever since their victory in The Battle of Taillte.


Fairies are restricted in how often and what activities they do above ground, especially if they're not in the Lower Elements Police. One of the LEPRetrieval's tasks is to capture fairies who've illegally ventured to the surface. If a civilian fairy wishes to travel between the Lower Elements and Earth's surface, they first must acquire a visa and then take one of the many pressure elevators.


Fairies generally perform the Ritual, go to Stonehenge and other tourist locations, conduct LEP business, and, recently, have been entangled in the Artemis Fowl affair on the surface.
