On May 9, 1994, Kai killed four of his siblings, yet Jo, Liv, and Luke managed to get away. On May 10, 1994, Jo told Kai she was going to merge with him, but she lied. He was imprisoned in an alternate dimension as punishment on May 10, 1994.
In Prayer For the Dying, Kai and Luke merge. Kai comes out the winner and the new Gemini leader. Luke dies. In Let Her Go, after giving all her magic to him, Jo learns from Kai that she is pregnant. In I'd Leave My Happy Home For You, Jo learns from Lily that she is carrying Josie and Lizzie twins, the future leaders of the Gemini Coven. In I'll Wed You in the Golden Summertime, Kai stabs Jo, killing her and the unborn twins. In I'm Thinking Of You All The While, Kai kills himself, killing the rest of the Gemini Coven, along with Joshua and Liv (who gets suffocated by Tyler). Kai then wakes up as a hybrid with Lily’s blood in his system. Later on, Kai dies, decapitated by Damon. This was the end of almost all members of the Parker family.
The Parker family has a history of holding the leadership of the Gemini Coven. Having produced a long line of leaders, their most recent was the powerful witch Joshua Parker. Along with an unnamed woman whom he was married to, they produced eight children: the eldest, Josette and Malachai, four deceased unnamed children, and the youngest, Lucas and Olivia. Malachai was born without his own magic, having the ability to siphon it from other witches, which transformed him into an unstable person, unable to properly lead the coven. Thus, his parents continued to have children until a new set of twins were born: Luke and Liv. However, this angered Kai to the point of killing four of the siblings and attempting to murder his younger twins. Jo managed to protect them and pretended to accept to merge with her brother. This way, the Coven sent Kai to his own personal prison, from which he has now escaped. Kai ends up being trapped for many years until Damon and Bonnie show up; they help him to escape and then he travels to Mystic Falls.
Potential leaders can only lead if they have a twin and pass through a horrific ritual known as "merging". After their 22nd birthday, the twins are required to "merge," so that one of them can absorb the magic of the weaker, who then dies. Since Kai and Jo did not perform this ritual on their 22nd birthday, Luke and Liv were expected to do so on their 22nd birthday. In I'm Thinking Of You All The While, the Gemini Coven was destroyed in which all members of this family, with the exception of Jo's twins, are dead.
- Joshua Parker: The patriarch who won his merge against his twin brother on their 22nd birthday. Joshua began an family and wanted to ensure the coven's surivial in the future by having a second pair of frantreal twins after the first pair became discarded.
- Malachai Parker: The oldest brother whose power hungry lead him to wanting leadership of the coven despite being a siphoner. He was impirsoned after his attempt after he killed most of his family. He was finally killed by Damon.
- Josette Laughlin: Kai's twin sister who doesn't share his abilities. Jo gave up her magic after seeing her younger silblings killed in cold blood by Kay. She's the biological mother of Josie & Lizzie who she never got to meet because of being killed before they were born.
- Joey Parker: The only named victim of Kay's masscure. He was apprantely close to his older brother as they played Mario together on their nintendo before Kai snapped and killed him.
- Joshua's Three Children (Name Unknown): Collorate damage as Kai reasoned his killings since he couldn't personally kill his father so he went for the next "best targets"
- Olivia Parker: As a twin she was required to do the merge with her brother, Luke despite knowing she would died. She was loyal to her her coven before seeing how that would cost her life as she never had the chance to live freely. She was mercy killed by her ex boyfriend Tyler when Kai did an second massacre against the Gemini Coven at Jo's wedding
- Lucas Parker: Liv's twin brother who cared more about his sister than their Coven. He proved that by merging with Kai instead of Liv as originally intended.
- Lizzie Saltzman: One of Jo's daughters with Alaric. Just like her maternal uncle Kai she was reveled to be a siphoner shortly before she was born. Before that she and her sister were saved by the Gemni Coven who didn't know this as they wanted to preverse their Coven.
- Josie Saltzman: One of Jo's daughters who was (named in remembrance of her) with Alaric. Just like her maternal uncle Kai she was reveled to be a siphoner shortly before she was born. Before that she and her sister were saved by the Gemni Coven who didn't know this as they wanted to preverse their Coven.
