What is Unicorn?
It is said that unicorn is a magical creature that has the body of a horse, but with a single—usually spiral—horn growing out of its forehead. There are many versions of unicorns. In the West, the image of the unicorn has a Billy-goat beard, a lion’s tail, and cloven hooves, which distinguish it from a horse.
Ancient Chinese Gods and Beasts- QiLin
In the East, the unicorn is different. Qilin(麒麟 in Chinese) is a creature in Chinese mythology and is sometimes called “the Chinese unicorn,” it is a hybrid animal that looks less unicorn than a chimera. It has the body of a deer, the head of a lion, green scales, and a long forwardly-curved horn. The Japanese Kirin, though based on the Chinese animal, is usually described as more closely resembling the Western unicorn than the Chinese Qilin.

The name Kirin is also used in Japanese for the giraffe. However, the difference between versions, the symbolic meaning of unicorn is all the same. The Unicorn is universally beautiful, mysterious, and difficult to capture or corrupt. It is a common representation of purity. In the book Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, the unicorn was revered by Muggles and wizards alike; it is one of nature’s purest and most beautiful magical creatures. As such, the slaying of one is regarded as a terrible crime, and doing so carries terrible consequences.
