* {{Unicorn}}: In the Rampant series, unicorns are stone-cold killers with poisonous horns, and only virgin descendants of Alexander the Great can kill them.
* VirginPower: ''Rampant'' features a society of virgins who hunt bloodthirsty, evil unicorns. Over the course of that novel and its sequel, it’s shown that losing one’s virginity causes one to lose one’s ability to hunt unicorns—whether willingly (one girl sleeps with her boyfriend specifically to ''avoid'' getting roped into unicorn-hunting) or unwillingly (one girl is raped). Losing one’s virginity likewise strips a girl of magical protection from the unicorns, who, albeit reluctantly, cannot attack a virgin. Also, males never (naturally) get either protection or powers, status of virginity notwithstanding.
