 I've just had a revelation, the Praxian Trickster is THE MOROKANTH!!

 See the Waha myth, watch in astonishment as the Morokanth tricks his way
through the Survival Covenant and whats more according to the Tales write up of
Hyena, Morokanth and he are associated. This of course supports my theory
mentioned some time ago that Morokanth use hyenas in the same way that other
Praxians use dogs.

 The main problem with this theory (other than it came while I was cleaning my
teeth) is that Morokanth blames Man for cheating and being the Trickster (a very
trickster thing to say).

 I can visualise Praxians sitting around the campfire telling stories about the
trickery of the Morokanth. These tales like all Trickster stories are comical
but contain a strong educational message about survival, human supremacy and
dealing with other races.

Cheers Simon.
