Coyote was an Earth folk trickster from the mythology of Native American culture. Coyote gave the powers of language and fire to humans. (TNG novel: Gulliver's Fugitives)

Background Edit

In early Native American culture, Coyote was seen as something sinister and slightly evil, a grey area between good and evil. Eventually, this distilled down to the point where Coyote became a trickster character in a series of humorous stories told to children for educational and entertainment reasons. (TOS novel: Uhura's Song)

Coyote was a Being, a member of an omnipotent non-corporeal race which visited Earth in ancient times and influenced many developing cultures, including Greek, Roman, Egyptian, and Norse. This trickster entity was also known as Anubis, Ares, Loki, and Mars. When the weather got too cold in the land of the Vikings as Loki, he would leave and appear as Coyote in the American southwest where it was warmer. (NF novels: Being Human, Gods Above)

History Edit
