Alicorn is a fictional character from the Wild Cards series of books. He is the lead guitarist for gothic rock band, The Jokertown Boys.

History Edit

Alicorn grew up in an orphanage with several other boys, with whom he later formed The Jokertown Boys.

Wild Card TraitsEdit

If anyone other than a virgin touches his horn, he turns into a full-sized unicorn and only by sustained contact with a virgin can he change back to human form again. This usually means being ridden for several minutes. In his unicorn form he loses all reason and should a non-virgin attempt to ride him he will attempt to throw the rider and bolt.

Appearance Edit

Alec is a seven foot tall joker with an impressive blond, spiked mohawk that covers a three foot long unicorn horn protruding from his forehead. He also sports a blond goatee beard.

Personality Edit

Trivia Edit

  • Alicorn's friends usually employ the services of Sister Mary Immaculate when needing a virgin to reverse the unicorn transformation.
  • He was infected with the Wild Card virus by Typhoid Croyd.
