One of the most revered mythical creatures in Chinese Mythology, it is ranked the third most powerful creature (behind the Dragon and Phoenix).   This is also reflected in its standings in the hierarchy of dances (behind the Dragon and Phoenix Dance and above the Lion Dance).   It has sometimes referred to as the Chinese Unicorn as it shares similar properties.   The Qi Lin is the guardian to the gateway to heaven and it’s appearance on earth indicates the birth or death of a sage or great ruler; One of the most notable appearances being when a Qi Lin appeared before the pregnant mother of Confucius.   Though fearsome looking, the Qi Lin are peaceful creatures, with the ability to walk on water and on grass without disturbing it. They are known to only punish the wicked, with the ability to breathe fire, if it is threatened. It is therefore connected with truth and justice and thus appears in front of many courts in the Far East.
