Are there any unicorns in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim? In The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion I have found unicorns. But I don't know if they exist in Skyrim.

Also, there are rumours about dwarves in the game. But has anyone seen any?

You could improve your question by changing its formatting. All the grey text doesn't help if it's too much. – Zsub Dec 22 '11 at 8:32
So what dose down vote mean? – Rev Dec 22 '11 at 8:59
That people don't consider this a 'good' question, for a variety of reasons. However, if they don't comment, you can't improve it. It may be beneficial to edit out the dwarven part, since that's easy to find on the unofficial wiki's and Google (maybe make that a seperate question) – Zsub Dec 22 '11 at 9:09

Dwarves (or Dwemer) in Skyrim have been "extinct" for a long time, the only remains of them are their ruins and automatons.

I'm not sure about Unicorns, but I haven't seen any yet.

And there is nothing on the wiki:

As far as the Dwarfs (or Dwemer) are concerned: they are an extinct species of elf, whose names mostly end in -mer:

  • Aldmer (a.k.a. Elder Folk)
  • Altmer (a.k.a. High Elves)
  • Ayleid (a.k.a. Wild Elves, Heartland High Elves)
  • Bosmer (a.k.a. Wood Elves)
  • Chimer (a.k.a. Changed Folk)
  • Dunmer (a.k.a. Dark Elves)
  • Dwemer (a.k.a. Dwarves, or Deep Folk)
  • Falmer (a.k.a. Snow Elves)
  • Maormer (a.k.a. Sea Elves or Tropical Elves)
  • Orc (a.k.a. Orsimer, or Pariah Folk)

(List lifted directly from the UESP page on Races)

Please note that as direct descendants of the Aldmeri-Nedic Manmer, Bretons are sometimes known by that name: Manmer.

The only thing left of the Dwemer as far as I know are the ruins of their cities and some of their mechanical creations.

I don't believe there is a unicorn in Skyrim.

Oi. Don't forget the Dunmer. People always forget the Dunmer... – Tom Wright Dec 22 '11 at 9:30
@Tom not nearly as often as they forget the Orsimer... They call them the Pariah Elves for a reason... :( – LessPop_MoreFizz Dec 22 '11 at 13:05
I am so terribly sorry! I shall update my answer as soon as I have found the time to compile an exhaustive list of (extinct) Elven species. – Zsub Dec 22 '11 at 13:38
@TomWright Gentlemen, I have updated my answer. I hope it is to your liking. – Zsub Dec 23 '11 at 15:31
And another ping @LessPop_MoreFizz – Zsub Dec 23 '11 at 15:31

According to the UESP unicorns were present in Oblivion only and can't be found in Skyrim. To the best of my knowledge there has only been one living dwarf present in any of the Elder Scrolls games and that was Yagrum Bagarn in Morrowind.
