In Medieval times, the Persians and Arabs thought it an animal bred through the mixture of the camel, the hyena, and the wild ox. Chinese of the Ming Dynasty thought it the incarnation of the mythical creature the ki’lin, known for its gentleness, goodness, and benevolence. The appearance of the Ki’lin was supposed to mark the appearing of a good leader-in this case, Confucius!
