Depiction of a unicorn on an Elven Destroyer's sail.

The unicorn is a species of horse-like creature living on Azeroth, but, unlike horses, they have a horn growing out of their head. The horns and their bright white color comes from alteration from the Well of Eternity, when a herd of horses was grazing near it before the Sundering.
