Expeditions Rome Geminus: Why Must You Kill Or Spare Geminus?
You begin Expeditions: Rome on a Roman ship bound for Asia Minor, as the Republic is at war with a legion of pirates and a foreign king called Mithridates who rules the Kingdom of Pontus. On the way, your boat is rammed by a group of pirates who then attempt to kill the entire crew. After the tutorial fight with the pirates is finished, the group decide to question Geminus, as they believe him to behind it.
From here you can ask the Triarchus a few questions to figure out whether he's behind the attack, and listen to your companions who all give different opinions on the situation. The choice boils down to executing Geminus there and then, or sparing his life and letting him continue onward to Asia Minor. What happens during both choices though?

Expeditions: Rome Geminus: Sparing The Triarchus
If during the Expeditions: Rome Geminus decision, you decide to spare him, Warmongering companions will disapprove, while Conciliatory ones will approve. It also means you can still interact with Geminus during the game, and it allows him to play a role later on.
After you arrive in Asia Minor, you will begin a few quests which relate to toppling a general named Archelaus, which ends with a siege on the city of Mytilene. During the last part of this siege, if you spared Geminus, you are given the choice of requesting his services to sneak you into the harbour and surprise Archelaus. This makes the siege much easier and quicker, and it makes for the optimal decision.
That's our breakdown of the Expeditions: Rome Geminus decision, and you should have an idea of whether you want to hold him to the standard of a Roman citizen, or practice mercy and make a potential ally.
