Unicorns were the first creatures created by Duna when he created Emtia. They are sentient beings, and the first two, Varyti and Myrsi become the mother and father of all unicorns. Duna later creates humans when he realizes that they will need help with certain tasks, like planting crops, building structures (for storage and shelter), and many other things that only hands can accomplish.
Built just like a horse, but with a long horn growing out of the forehead.
Genetics and Reproduction
Reproduction and gestation follow that of normal horses (around 11 months) , though a female unicorn with natural healing abilities may be able to speed their pregnancy along by a month or two. Unicorn foals are born with a star on their forehead where the horn will eventually grow. The color of the star determines what color their horn will be.
Uses, Products & Exploitation
It is believed in other kingdoms that if a someone were to possess a unicorn's horn, that individual would gain the same magical abilities that the unicorn had. Either that or they would be immortal - it depends on who you talk to. Thus far, as we know by the beginning of the story, only one unicorn has been killed, and pieces of her horn remain under protection at the castle in Emtia.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
All unicorns have magical abilities, but they vary depending on the individual. Some have powers to heal, others have persuasion or mind reading powers (this is how Myrsi learn's about Darad Payne's slave trading. Some unicorns have powers over mechanical things. For instance, Nyltir can unlock doors and bolts with his horn, and he and his father, Varyti, have been given the power to bind prisoners with magical shackles that can only be freed by the unicorn who set them.
Civilization and Culture
Unicorns usually have just one name, but they're all unique enough to not cause confusion. Current names in use are Varyti, Myrsi, and Nyltir.
The unicorns lived in Emtia alongside the humans there, and the Original Family ruled along with Truhan and his wife, Abigail.
- Scientific Name
- Cornu Unum
- Unknown. By 862, only 1 unicorn had been killed. Even the First Unicorn was still alive while the unicorns were vanishing. If he is still alive, he's 878 years old.
- Conservation Status
- By the year 878, unicorns have vanished without a trace. No one knows where they are or even if they're still alive. This leaves Emtia much more open to corruption, disease, and attack.
- Body Tint, Colouring and Marking
- They come in different colors from all spectrums. Gold, silver, pure white, or even colors of the rainbow like red, purple, and green. The possibilities are endless.
