In mythology, and in the study of folklore and religion, a trickster is a character in a story (god, goddess, spirit, human, or ), which exhibits a great degree of intellect or secret knowledge, and uses it to play tricks or otherwise disobey normal rules and conventional behaviour. Tricksters are archetypal characters who appear in the myths of many different cultures. Lewis Hyde describes the trickster as a "boundary-crosser".

Kidneythieves may only consist of Free Dominguez and Brian M. Somers, but the atmospheric music they combine to create sounds almost orchestral in nature. Dominguez's vocals can sound full of despair one minute, and deep with longing in another, comparable to such female singers such as Tori Amos and former Human Waste Project's Aimee Echo.
