User with this ability is a werecoyote, a carrier of the coyote strain of lycanthropy, with the ability to transform into a coyote or an anthropomorphic coyote-like creature, either purposely or after being placed under a curse and/or lycanthropic affliction via a bite or scratch from a werecoyote, or through other means.
The user gains the traits and characteristics of a coyote with supernatural abilities, the most obvious being able to shift into a coyote. Coyote characteristics are added to their human ones and amplified, e.g enhanced strength, speed, stamina etc. In addition they are usually not as powerful as their werewolf counterpart, although they make up for this in adaptability and cunning. They usually have a greater survival instinct then other were-creatures.
