The unicorn is a species of horse-like creature living on Azeroth, but, unlike horses, they have a horn growing out of their head. The Quel'dorei steed are descended from a fine line of horses that once grazed near the shores of the Well of Eternity.[1] Many unicorns live on the Broken Isles. The majority of the nightborne refer to zhevras as "monohorns" instead of "unicorns", claming that it is a much more fitting name, though there is debate among their community. They consider them a rare breed, their distinctive hides being used for all manner of fashion, including hats, coat linings, and other fine apparel.[2] At least some unicorns are tied to the Emerald Dream. Dreamrunners, for instance, are capable of traveling between Azeroth and the Emerald Dream at will.[3] Ephemeral Runners are ghostly unicorns living on the world of Bonich.

Notes

  • The Legion unicorn model is named "horse2" in the files.
  • The unicorn is possibly one of the oldest and most recognized mythical creatures in the world. The traditional European unicorn looks similar to a horse, save for cloven hooves, a goat beard, and a lion-like tail. Unicorns are known for their healing powers and their solitary nature.
