“I chose you because you are different from all the other unicorns in the Fairy Kingdom. Your horn may be broken and small, but your heart is big and strong.”
-Alex Bailey [TLOS III, ch 2]
As a baby Cornelius suffered an accident that caused his horn to be broken in half. Since then he suffered depressions and exclusion from the other unicorns.
Appearance and Personality Edit
Cornelius is a white unicorn with golden hooves and he has a good smile. His horn is broken and he is little overweight. He is very self-concious because of that.
Cornelius "wears his heart on his hoof". He has a good heart and is brave.
Breaking his horn did not affect his ability to do magic. His magic allows him to find persons in need and he travels at a magically enhanced pace.
Cornelius is apparently a good dancer.
Cornelius is very close to Alex. He is her companion on her fairy duties. She loves him and helps him with his confidence and finding a place in the world.
However, when Alex starts losing control over her powers, she accidentally hurts him and feels so bad about it that she keeps her distance from him after that. Cornelius then spends several months helping Rook find the Masked Man.

3. A Grimm Warning Edit
Cornelius helps Alex with her daily fairy duties. During Alex's fairy inauguration, Cornelius is presented as a proof that Alex passed the test of kindness.
He fights the dragon along with the other unicorns and is injured, but not severely.
4. Beyond the Kingdoms Edit
After the defeat of the Grande Armée, Cornelius and Rook have spent months trying to find the Masked Man. Cornelius helps to find Alex and Rook tells her where to find him.
“Alex gave this unicorn a chance to prove himself even when the unicorns of his own herd had disregarded him,” Xanthous continued. “She has proven that she believes passion is far more important than appearance and in doing so has passed the test of kindness.”
