The Trickster carries an enormous number of opposites and many of the adventures could be seen as arising from the tension that is found between these opposites. Let the Trickster inhabit the darker side of life, while we use that force, through his stories, to bring us to the good side of life. Let us have balance by leaving evil in the realm of the gods and keeping good in the realm of humanity.
Trickster Gods are tricky. They tease you, they obstruct your path, and when you look back at your life you see how much they have helped you.
A trickster breaks the rules. The Trickster Gods have knowledge beyond this world. They can be mean, but they always put the hero on the path of his life.
