One of the many types of Unicorn from ancient Chinese belief. The Chiai Tung is said to resemble a lion with one horn protruding from its head. It was mentioned in the Yuen Kien Lei Han and is said to have a similar behaviour to the Kai Tsi. The Chiai Tung like the Kai Tsi is very good at distinguishing right from wrong. When an emperor is undecided to know whether someone is a criminal or not they suspect is thrown into pit with the Chiai Tung. If guilty the Chiai Tung will gorge on them but if innocent it will not attack and spare them.
