Gemini is a "morality play" based on Greek and African mythologies. Gemini was originally titled "Prometheus Complex" and "Rebirth" in respective of Greek/African myths. In Gemini, Dr. Aaron Avalon represents the god Prometheus. Jabari Turner Jr. represents Hercules. Adofo Willingham represents the eagle which torments Prometheus. As the Greek story goes, Hercules kills the eagle which torments Prometheus and sets Prometheus free.
Afro-centrically, Jabari Turner Jr. represents the god Horus. Adofo Willingham represents the god Seth. Dr. Aaron Avalon and James Mack combine to represent Osiris. As the Egyptian myth is sometimes told, Seth is a warrior who battles the evil serpent-god Apep which allows Osiris to sail his ship through the underworld safely. For reasons unknown, Seth later kills Osiris who is later resurrected by Isis. Seth changes from protector to enemy. Horus, Osiris' son, hates Seth for the murder attempt on his father.
No poetry conveys the evils of violence against women like the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe. Some of his poems are eerie. So, I included some of Edgar Allan Poe’s symbolism into Gemini.
Adofo Willingham has a half-brother named Edgar (from Edgar Allan Poe). Edgar’s family relation to Adofo provides an excellent opportunity for Edgar to watch Adofo descend into violence which eventually includes women. Edgar’s relation to Adofo allows him knowledge of Adofo’s violence against his fiancée named Lenore. Of course, the name Lenore was taken from an Edgar Allan Poe poem.
