The Unicorns are spirits of nature, and as such they are sacred to the Elves. They are considered as a totem animal for the whole of Irollan, and it is said that when the last Unicorn will die so will the Elven kingdom and all its people. While the truth of this legend is not known, the Unicorns' shimmering auras do have the ability to shield their allies from hostile spells.OffBck

The unicorn is the fifth-level creature of the Sylvan town in Heroes of Might and Magic V.

The unicorn has enough speed to charge, and a decent melee attack. The Aura makes it useful for protecting the weaker members of the army, as you can place it next to your ranged attackers and protect them from enemy spells.
