The Dioscuri (Castor and Pollux) Family

Advertisement - Guide continues below


The main theme in the lives of the Dioscuri is family brotherhood. These guys are totally inseparable. From the moment they hatch from their mother's egg, they do everything together: go on epic quests, steal themselves some wives, and even go cattle rustling. Unlike some brothers, there's no sibling rivalry here. Even in the afterlife, Castor and Pollux are together up in the sky where (according to most) they shine forever as the constellation, Gemini. From now until forever, the Dioscuri are always on each other's team.
