Unicorns and their benevolent magic have been recorded throughout history. In mythology, Unicorns are said to have healing abilities. They can live forever, or, until killed. It was said that drinking their blood would instantly cure all ailments to the human body. Even in one of his notebooks Leonardo da Vinci wrote:
"The unicorn, through its intemperance and not knowing how to control itself, for the love it bears to fair maidens forgets its ferocity and wildness; and laying aside all fear it will go up to a seated damsel and go to sleep in her lap, and thus the hunters take it."
