Is this the one you've been waiting for heroes?
Unicorns have been one of the most popular mythical creatures throughout human history, ever since they supposedly appeared on the ancient walls of the Lascaux cave. They've been woven into our stories for centuries - found across Greek Mythology, in Medieval European tapestries and even in the Bible - and now it's time for you to meet our Unicorn...introduing Shimmer!
Read all about her below!
Type of creature: Unicorn
Strength: Unicorn horns have very powerful healing properties - they can even bring people back from the brink of death. (They also have glittery poo!)
Weakness: Loud noises - Unicorns are quite timid, and can get scared easily.
What do they eat: Golden apples grown in the garden of the Hesperides (or Tescos if your hero is in a pinch...)
Did you know: Unicorns are born completely gold and turn silver as they age!
