- Gwent card description

A Chironex looks like a demonlike variant of a normal unicorn, but in fact is just a necrophage, like a ghoul or a rotfiend.[1]

According to legend, when a horse traversing the desert collapses of thirst near a Place of Power, its corpse arises as a chironex—a demonic, unicorn-like creature born of magic mixed with scorching heat, intense suffering, and a miserable death.

The more prosaic truth? Chironices are necrophages, cousins of ghouls and rotfiends, who migrated to the Korath Desert during the Conjunction of the Spheres. They are thus not born of horses or magic or overwhelming thirst, but begat by their own kind in a process best left unimagined.
