Step 1: Isolation. Colour-blind edition

They say one of the greatest assets one can have in warfare is information, pertaining to your own forces, those of your enemy, to battle positions, to the battlefield itself, and in this particular case also: What your enemy does and does not know.

And when you can control what your enemy does and does not know, virtually everything else is worthless to them. As for whether that isolation in itself is Rain’s plan here, I’m afraid you’ll have to keep reading.

  3. Greek and Roman mythology, two brothers Latin name for them Gemini, one was a mortal Spartan king, the other a son of Zeus who wanted to share his immortality once the other kicked the bucket, got turned into the constelation.
    Or something like that.

  4. Castor and Pollux were sons of Leda, making them brothers of Helen of Troy. Castor was the son of Leda’s mortal husband, Pollux was the son of Zeus. (There was a fourth child, Clytemnestra, son of Leda’s mortal husband; the four were quadruplets… well, more like two sets of twins from two literal bird eggs, really, but that’s a tangent.) Castor and Pollux were joined at the hip and did everything together, but when they died they got split up because Pollux was half-god and therefore immortal, but Castor wasn’t. So Zeus allowed Pollux to give Castor half of his immortality and they spend half their time in Olympus and half in Hades.

  5. Whoops, I made a typo: Clytemnestra was a girl. So “son” in that sentence should be “daughter.” Oops.
