Q for Qilin by tohdaryl Q for Qilin by tohdaryl
A mythical hooved Chinese chimerical creature known throughout various East Asian cultures, and is said to appear with the imminent arrival or passing of a wise sage or an illustrious ruler. It is a good omen that brings rui (Chinese:瑞; pinyin: ruì; roughly translated as “serenity” or “prosperity”). It is often depicted with what looks like fire all over its body. It is sometimes called the “Chinese unicorn” when compared with the Western unicorn.

I heard that the Quilin was originally modelled after the tiger until Zeng He brought over girrafes from East Africa.
