What one can perceive as an unicorn or one-horns is in fact a member of a race of sentient multi-dimensional beings who are able to traverse the Multiverse. They are known to observe doings of less advanced species.
They look like horses with a single, often spiral horn in the middle of their foreheads. They use telepathy to communicate with each other and sometimes with other races. Unicorn horns are universal antidotes to poison and can be used to detect poisons as well. They also change color with age.
Divided into herds, unicorn society is specifically organized and led by a council of elders.
Unicorns tend to communicate via simple communicates like "confirmation" or "negation" and refer to members of less advanced races as "Beings". They vehemently despise those who use Power and usually kill those who they perceive as the most dangerous. There are however cases when they help or guide lesser beings in fulfilling the Destiny, though the reasons they do it are usually unknown. One such event occured when a black unicorn led Viduka to the rock where he would later found his capital.
Unicorns greatly dislike the Aen Elle who forced them to open the gates between worlds so that they might massacre humans from other worlds. They can move between parallel realities, and they may also move through time (fourth and fifth dimensions). The legends that suggest unicorns can only be captured by virgins are false. In reality, they simply despise evil and so, avoid it. They usually appear to people with a good heart.
- Similarly mysterious race is mentioned in the Hussite Trilogy of Andrzej Sapkowski. Its members are known as Watchers and leave trace of astral magic after utilising their powers.
