A Unicorn that has the body of a mule with yellow-brown shaggy fur like a bear and cloven hooves.

If these horns were obtained they could be dipped in water and create an antidote for venomous stings from snakes. The Pyrassoupi was recorded in works of Ambroise Pare in his On Monsters and Marvels.
