The Unicorn is a white, equine creature with a single horn on its forehead. Wands combined with Unicorn cores are the most faithful of all, and remain admirably attached to their owner, irrespective of whether he or she is an accomplished Witch or Wizard. Wands with Unicorn cores are generally the most difficult to turn to the Dark Arts; they are best suited for the kind, the truthful and the pure-of-heart. Unicorn hair generally produces the most consistent magic. Although endowed in healing, defensive magic, and charm work. Minor disadvantages are that they do not make the most powerful wands, (although the strength of the wood may compensate) and that they are prone to melancholy if seriously mishandled, meaning that the hair may 'die' and need replacing. They are sensitive and mysterious wands indeed.
