Description[]

Uni would sometimes prove useful to her companions, but could also get into trouble.[1]

Abilities[]

Still young for a unicorn, Uni lacked all of an adult unicorn's powers, but could still cast a small number of spells. These included cure light wounds thrice a day and cure moderate wounds, neutralize poison, and greater teleport (but only within a forest) each once a day. The unicorn an aura of magic circle against evil.[1]

Combat[]

The small unicorn attacked with her magical alicorn.[1]

History[]

Uni lived in the Realm and met Bobby the Barbarian and his friends soon after they entered that place. The two quickly bonded and became inseparable.[1]

The Victims of Tiamat[]

Uni, Bobby, and an adventurer

Uni, Bobby, and an adventurer on the streets of Neverwinter.

Living long before the mid-to-late 14th century DR, the small unicorn was rumored to be a pet of a diminutive barbarian among a band of young adventurers who were all trying to find a way back to their distant home. However, it was said they were all slain horribly by Tiamat, with the barbarian being swallowed by one of her heads. It was supposed that the unicorn was swallowed as well. By 1369 DR, the Adventurer Mart in Athkatla, Amn, displayed paintings of the barbarian and the ranger.[2]

By the late 15th century DR, Uni, despite being a unicorn, was known as an accomplished adventurer who traveled alongside Bobby. Fully adult, she was a strong, confident, and graceful creature who took on any challenge horn-first. Uni and Bobby were seen joining adventurers in the city of Neverwinter in the late 15th century DR.[3]

Background[]

First appearing in the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon series of 1983–1985, the unicorn Uni was a pet of the characters Hank, Eric, Diana, Presto, Sheila, and Bobby, who were teenagers from Earth who were transported to a place called 'the Realm'—which is not in any way, shape, or form related to the Forgotten Realms setting or the world of Toril. Despite this, since the end of that series, they have made no less than four cameo appearances in Forgotten Realms sources, before having a comic series of their own set in the Realms (plural), Saturday Morning Adventures, which mistakenly calls the Realm 'the Forgotten Realms' and assumes it to be on Toril.

As such, their five appearances in the Realms (plural) are contradictory and spread over more than a century of time, with them having different apparent ages and, in one case, being seemingly killed before their next chronological appearance. Short of a storyline involving cloning and/or time travel, these are difficult to reconcile. In any case, for completeness, each appearance is included here. It should be noted that Uni has only been in two of these, with an implied mention in Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and only appearing fully in Saturday Morning Adventures.

However, to maintain focus on the Realms (plural) and avoid further confusion, only information from Forgotten Realms sources is included here and the Realm is considered not to be a part of the Realms.
