The Upper World is the world in which Eric Hinkle, Julie Rubin and Neal Kroger reside. It is the regular world and is only linked to Droon through two staircases, the Rainbow Staircase and the Dark Staircase; and the Fifth River. It is the birthplace of Galen Longbeard, Lord Sparr and Urik and the homeworld of Queen Zara. Zara and Sparr were kidnapped from this world by Emperor Ko and taken into Goll where Zara died and Sparr turned towards Ko. Later on it was where the Coiled Viper was hidden. Magic once existed in this world but was taken-ed by the Princess of Shadowthorn and her goblins 500 years ago in her time traveling city Pesh.
