A relatively new religion known as Rulerism has caused many worlds to suffer what is generally thought of as a loss of cultural identity, and while the Rulerists attempt benevolvence, accidents have happened. Mistakes have been made, in spite of all good intentions.
One such mistake is Grey, a human sent to an alien psychology ward far from his home on Earth. Those who resist the pull of Rulerism are looking for any way to assert themselves, and the kidnapping of such a unique specimin seems ideal.
But sometimes there's a reason for things to be locked away...
