"It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more."
Albus Dumbledore[src]

Unknown is the lack of knowledge about something. Albus Dumbledore once remarked that the only thing a human being fears in death and darkness is the unknown.[1]

The Unknown is personified in the runic alphabet as an egg-shaped creature with four legs. It also looks like a faceless head (symbolic of its meaning). The Unknown is used in said alphabet to represent the number seven, given that the symbolic meaning of the number is yet to be discovered. The unknown is when one is scared and doesn't know what of.[2]
