From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


The alicorn is a massive and magnificent winged and horned horse that serve as spiritual and political leaders of the equestrian nation. Alicorns are regal and majestic creatures whose lordly bearing fills all who see it with awe and reverence. They reign as kind monarchs or polyarchs over vast magical kingdoms. A rare few alicorns are demigods, each such alicorn has a singular god-like command over an aspect of nature, be it raising the sun or ensuring the fertility of the soil. And as rulers, each alicorn serve as leaders over their particular kingdom and as almighty protectors for all creatures under their wings. Evil creatures that dare to endanger the livelihood of any vassal under their protection risk the glorious judgement of the alicorn.


Alicorns are wise and kind creatures who encourage friendship and harmony. They believe in the goodness inherent in all individuals, no matter what past wrongs they have committed. Despite their good nature and patience, they are stalwart in the face of evil and chaos. If an evil creature cannot be reasoned with, an alicorn will mete out justice in the best way possible.

Physical Description[edit]

An alicorn have deep, wisdom-filled eyes, a long spiraling horn, and flowing ethereal manes and tails. Males sport a beard. A typical adult alicorn grows to 10 feet in length, stands 7 feet high at the shoulder, has a wingspan of 40 feet, and weighs 1,600 pounds. Females are slightly smaller and slimmer than males.

An alicorn's natural fur, feather, and mane color patterns have a wide range, but are usually soft pastel colors. Each alicorn has a unique 'cutie mark' that appears on both flanks and reflects the integral nature of that specific alicorn.


Alicorns prefer the company of other equines such as horses, unicorns, pegasi, and centaurs. Any good aligned creatures can be found living peacefully in the kingdom of an alicorn. Good fey, dragons, and elementals often become close companions of alicorns. Humanoids sometimes struggle with the absolute lawful good nature of alicorns, though friendships can be forged.


Alicorns live in posh palaces that overlook the entirety of their kingdom on the Material Plane. Blessed are the lands which are kept under the watchful eye of an Alicorn over the years.


The demigod alicorns serve as the gods for all equestrians, such as control over bodies in space, similar to moons, galaxies, and other things of massive power


Alicorns speak Common, Sylvan, Celestial, and Draconic.
