History

Regis was one of the Blue that made the first contact with Sliding Earth in their 16th century. Of these people, there are only 5 other survivors. Apparently, the alien/human alliance was centered around 2 poles : England, who kept most of his human royal line, and Italy, who quickly mixed with the aliens. Regis was in a position of power in the Italian faction.

Helped by the fruitful Blue partnership, England developed his colonial empire. We can assume it was a significantly larger one than what our history tells us. For some reason, the Italian/Blue alliance didn’t develop so well, and they started to grow envious.

This resulted in late colonial wars against poor countries like Africa or China. As military leaders, Regis and his ilk were not the ones to hesitate, so they immediately went bacteriological and nuclear. After a century or so of such beating, Sliding Earth became so poisonous that life was barely possible. The new territories, thus conquered, saw their population so weakened that the surviving females were not able to stand a Blue crossbreed pregnancy.

The Italian Blue were facing a serious birth rate problem. This problem may have existed in Sliding Albion too, but as the country was still ruled by the human Windsor bloodline, it was less critical. Furthermore, Sliding Albion’s colonies hadn’t been poisoned, so the Blue/Human birth rate was certainly not so critically low.

Regis was put in charge of finding a solution for his Italian peers. His idea was to use small countries as rape camps. His first move, in the Hanseatic Marches and China (presumably because of its high human birth rate), met a resistance where our Earth’s England, mainly Jenny Sparks and the British Space Corps, nearly killed Regis.

Nearly, because the Sicilian physicians managed to save him, leaving him just castrated. He ordered all the males to be killed, and all the females to be interned. Then he sent his hybrids’ regiment in to conceive children. But the females were too weak for this plan to work. Their other alternative was to go for Sliding Albion’s still fertile countries. That’s the 1st parallel World War that we know of, the one where Sliding Albion vented the bacteriological cloud that was going to kill them to our Earth in a failed attempt to save themselves.

Afterward, Sliding Earth witnessed relentless world wars between England and Italy, until the Ninth, where Italy won, and Regis was given the kingship of Sliding Albion.

After 50 years of wars, the Blue society, rotten by decadency and technological stagnation, needed a new goal to motivate its people. That’s why Regis turned his eyes to our Earth, again. The first contact, made by Sliding Albion, before their WWI, ended in a friendly way. This time, Regis wanted to turn the whole planet in a rape camp. On a still clean land, the female population would be able to bear Blue children.

But The Authority interfered, went to him though The Bleed, over Sliding Westminster, made the palace a pile of rubble, killed Regis, and drowned Italy, still a center of Blue influence, in the Adriatic.


Description

Regis is a tall, strong Blue of pure blood. His skin is, blue, of course. But he also has huge horns on the head. He is bald, as any pure Blue. He wears english regal clothes, but not in the 19th century fashion, like the rest of his army. His have a more Middle Ages flavor, with large girdles across the breast and a fur cape.


Personality

He’s obsessed with the Blue’s expansion, either on Sliding Earth, or anywhere else. He’s psychopathic and megalomaniac, for sure, thinking good only for himself or the other few pure Blue survivors, and nothing but contempt for the human race. He gives them credit for breeding purpose only, and barely. For nourishment too, as it is subtly suggested.


Quotes

“There’s a German word I’m fond of. Lebensraum.”
