The ki-rin, A, is an angelic being in NetHack. It is often a candidate for a player's steed (if they manage to tame one - difficult due to its high magic resistance) due to its high speed, power, and ability to fly. They also will wear amulets of reflection (though they are not generated with them), preventing any nasty disintegration accidents. A ki-rin steed will never buck you despite a worn ring of conflict due to the way monster level enters the workings of monster magic resistance (unless you level drain it below 15).

Any non-knight should count on a charmed ki-rin going wild (peaceful) after mounting, kicking or whipping it five times.
