Chi Lyn

Chi Lyn

The Chi Lyn (or Ki Lin) is a type of Unicorn from China. The male is called a chi, and the female a lyn. They have the body of a deer, the head of a dragon, the tail of an ox, and, like European Unicorns, a single horn in the middle of their foreheads. Each Chi Lyn is about the size of a goat. The skin of a Chi Lyn has hues of blue, black, green, red and white, the colors of the five Chinese elements. They are the gentlist of all creatures, not even bending the grass when they step on it. The Chi Lyn will also not eat living things, prefering instead to eat things that have already whithered and died. They live for one thousand years, but only appear when a worthy ruler is born or is about to die. The last confirmed Chi Lyn was seen in the time of Confucius.
