Synopsis for "Shiftships (Part I of IV)"
In Sliding Albion, an alternate Earth where aliens and humans coexist together and London runs the rest of the world, Yngvi, a "blue blood" tells his king (a human of the Windsor family) that they need a war. The king insults Yngvi for being part alien and tells Yngvi that he's in his kingdom now, as the two of them walk into the throne room where a drunken party is taking place. All of a sudden, the king starts hearing voices. Someone, a blue blood, is taunting him, saying that he gave the Windsor the kingdom and that he's isn't respecting the gift he received. The king becomes deeply scared, pulls out his gun and starts firing wildly, killing all his guests. As he's shooting, a hand grips his head and crushes it. Regis, the owner of the hand, appears out of thin air and tells Yngvi that he can rule now before saying that they're going to war. He goes to eat the former king's children.
