This mythical chimerical creature is known in China and other East Asian cultures. According to legend it is said to appear with the imminent arrival or passing of a sage or illustrious ruler. It is a good omen thought to occasion prosperity or serenity. It is often depicted with what looks like fire all over its body. I remember my friend on Deviantart told me this creature was cross-bred with a unicorn & a dragon though I don't know if that's true I still think it's interesting so here's the result.
