A Unicorn is not unlike a war-horse; it has heavy cloven hooves, the main difference in appearance is that it has a single central horn on its forehead. Unicorns are intelligent creatures. Unicorns like to use their horn as a lance when charging the enemy. Unicorns are a magical creature, which means they can dispel magic that is targeted at them. The horn of a Unicorn is said to have great healing powers. They are often seen to be pure white or grey in colour, though have been known to show the same variation as normal horses. In some mythology unicorns can only be tamed by females that are pure of heart.
