For those lucky enough to breed a Unicorn Dragon, they will find themselves a very affectionate and faithful companion. Unicorn Dragons are gentle creatures, and will often follow around their caretakers as they tend to other dragons around the island. This is especially true of the foals (baby Unicorn Dragon), which are rarely absent from their caretaker's side.
Unicorn Dragons are so scarce that they had been thought to be extinct at various points throughout their history. Due to their temperate disposition, many caretakers believe that Unicorn Dragons can only be born on islands where the pure-of-heart dwell.
As Unicorn Dragons mature, they grow tufts of multi-colored hair on their tails. These tail hairs retain a vibrant quality since they are encrusted with specks of diamonds, making it shimmer in the sunlight. Caretakers collect tail hair that Unicorn Dragons shed, as it is very valuable; it is a key component in expensive jewelry, clothing fabric, and rope.
Epic Unicorn Dragons actually have two fully-grown horns on their heads: one on their foreheads and one on the bridge of their snout. Though both these are striking, Unicorn Dragons remain very docile creatures; however, the horns do manage to keep potential enemies away, such as poachers or diamond traders.
When a breeding pair contains Diamond and only one other minor color, you can get a pure dragon of that color, a pure Diamond color dragon, or a Diamond hybrid with that color if any are possible. The Pink color will also split into Red and White, introducing any hybrids that can result from having those colors in the pool. In addition, the Diamond and single minor color pool is special and will also produce the pure color dragons involved in the split: Red and White pures for the Pink color.
When a breeding pair contains Diamond and at least two other different colors, Diamond is then treated as its own color under normal rules and any possible offspring within that color pool can emerge. If a Unicorn Dragon is bred with a Water Dragon, for example, you could get any hybrid dragon with a combination of Pink, Blue, or Diamond colors. If you have 4 or more colors in the pool, you can also breed a pureDiamond color dragon. In addition, the Pink color can split into Red and White, changing the color pool in the example to red, white, blue, and diamond if it splits.
