Myths and legends could be said to be the prototypes of modern novels. They are stories in their own right, tales that were passed on for generations. Even today, some elements from the old myths remain in our stories and occasionally, they serve as inspiration. This week’s mythical element is: Qilin In Chinese Mythology, the Qilin is a strange mixture of different animals which is described in multiple ways in multiple tales. Sometimes called the "Chinese Unicorn", Qilins have a single horn on their forehead and are thought to have the head of a dragon and the body of a tiger with scales. At other times, Qilins are depicted as a rare form of unicorns and while they look fearsome, they only punish those who are evil. Qilins are gentle creatures which make an effort not to harm any life they come across, unless they become enraged. This usually happens when a good person is assaulted by a sinful one. Qilins are also said to only visit the areas which are governed by a wise leader. Your challenge is to write a story that incorporates your own take on this mythical element. The genre and setting of the story does not matter as long as the element remains recognisable.
