Alicorns are horses with feathered wings and a horn jutting out of their forehead. There are a total of four known in the Elvin world. Some consider them the rarest creature on the planet.
They have brown eyes with gold flecks, much like Sophie, whose genes were based on alicorn genes. Alicorns can teleport, inflict positive emotions, and track thoughts to their exact location. They come in colors such as gray and white. Their manes are said to look silvery and feel like ice, and their horns look like a mix of swirling white and silver. The only known Alicorns are Silveny, Greyfell, Wynn, and Luna. In Flashback, Silveny gives birth to twins, Wynn and Luna.
Elves thought they knew about every creature that existed - until they found the first alicorn: a male named Greyfell, who Silla Heks and her family trained. They'd been searching for another alicorn for centuries until Sophie found the first female alicorn, which she named Silveny while attempting to track a sasquatch with her adoptive father Grady, her best friend Dex, and bodyguard Sandor in Book 2: Exile.
Their manure and their vomit are described as sparkly.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Alicorns are white horses with white wings, a silver-white horn, and a white mane and tail. Every bit of them sparkle, even their feces, and as Sophie finds out from Silveny's morning sickness, their puke. However, the tips of the wings of male alicorns are blue and they are said to have purple tongues.
Known Alicorns[edit | edit source]
Silveny is the alicorn Sophie found in Book 2: Exile. She lived in the Sanctuary and is very important because she was the only female alicorn known to exist in the Elvin world before Luna and Wynn's birth. Silveny is very fond of both Keefe and Sophie and every mention of Keefe makes Silveny chant "KEEFE! KEEFE! KEEFE!" in Sophie's head. Much to Sophie's dismay, Keefe gave her the nickname "Glitter Butt" because of her shimmery feces. Silveny and Greyfell can teleport (Sophie can as well, for some of her genes were based on alicorn genetics) and they sometimes live in the Havenfield Sanctuary with their two alicorn babies, Luna and Wynn. Sophie has a special relationship with Silveny, who helps Sophie sleep by sending calming images into Sophie's mind at night.
Greyfell is the only known male alicorn prior to Luna and Wynn's birth. He has blue tipped wings like his son Wynn. He currently lives with his mate Silveny and his two alicorn babies. Sophie learned through her telepathy that Greyfell had a hard life before he was rehabilitated, seeing his family and friends hunted and killed by humans and ogres alike. He flies with Silveny, going where she goes. Before Silveny was found, he was the only known alicorn.
In Neverseen, Lodestar, and Nightfall, it is confirmed by Silveny that she is pregnant. In Flashback, Luna and Wynn were prematurely born and had to live in a special troll hive for a period to develop fully. Sophie and Keefe named Luna and Wynn. Wynn had the blue streaks on his wings like his father, while Luna looks more like her mother.
Quotes[edit | edit source]
“Wynn wasn't just adorable. He was a true miracle baby, since he and his twin sister, Luna, were the first alicorns to ever be born in the Lost Cities.”
