One of the purest and special creatures of wizarding world, Unicorns, are known with their pale white look and appearance like horse. Unicorns are protected by Ministry of Magic and harming or killing them is strictly forbidden.
Those special creatures are also very fast and cautious which that makes them very hard to catch or handle. Also Unicorns prefer a women’s touch instead of a man’s.
Unicorn blood used for healing and resurrection magic. Even Unicorn blood resurrects, it also curses when it touch to lips of someone. Unicorn hair also used in wands as core but it’s not much effective as alternative substances.
