Coyote the Trickster

Coyote is the 4th and last of my trickster series.  He is normally compared to both Loki and Prometheus, whenever mentioned.

The Coyote is the Trickster I was first introduced to and I have to admit that even though I love the Kitsune and Loki, I play favorites with Coyote because I’m Native.

 

SPECIES

He is anthropomorphic. A human. A coyote. Able to be both at the same time. Able to be only one at a time. Whichever he chooses. He is also able to take the shape of a human with a coyote’s head, but I find that theory creepy, strange, and kind of dorky/silly. So I’m going to continue on ignoring it and pretend I didn’t say it.

Coyote is one of the First People, one of the beings who existed before the human race.

There is not a race of coyote tricksters as there are with the Kitsune, for example. There is only one Coyote, as he is an immortal. And even though he may die in one tale, legend, or myth, he will always and forever return to life.
