Legendary Primer - T is for Trickster

Brian Ness

Tricksters show up in legends from all over the world. They are known for breaking rules and overturning the natural order of things. They are oftentimes thieves and clowns. Tricksters take all sorts of shapes - gods, monkeys, rabbits, but most famously, in most Native American legends, the Trickster is a Coyote who rules over all animals.
