London 1830;

Three officers of the Metropolitan Police find another officer impaled on a steel fence, it is revealed they've been chasing after a criminal for a year.

When running through the streets they see a man beating up an officer so they chase after him. He wears strange boots that enable him to take large leaps.

One officer keeps up with him, watching as he takes a row-boat flowing with electricity float into the air.
