Coyote is a criminal from El Paso, Texas. Supposedly, he is a were-coyote but he was never observed turning back into a human while he was incarcerated in Belle Reve Penitentiary. He also never gave his real name. Upon recruiting Captain Boomerang and Ms. Clay for a Task Force X mission, Amanda Waller went to Coyote next. Coyote demanded they clean out his pit and claimed their treatment was inhumane. He lunged at them but the guard tasered him into submission. Waller hoped he had a tendency to work with a "pack." She offered him the chance to run around and have better food on missions. He accepted. Dr. Polaris, Bane, Chimera, and Harley Quinn were recruited after Coyote. Waller left them in a training yard and gave them three days to shape up for the mission or heads would get blown off. During the mission on Recovery, Coyote chomped on an assassin's neck. He sliced the neck of an assassin that grabbed Harley Quinn then suggested he wasn't trying to hit him. After an assassin called out another named Zuel to fight, Coyote promised to eat her, too.

The zealot turned to be Giganta. After she pounded Bane, Coyote jumped on her right arm and took a bite. Giganta slammed him into the ship then tossed him into the ocean. He was forced to fend off one of the sharks Chimera summoned to kill the assassins. Coyote ate several and eventually climbed back aboard Recovery. He spotted Chimera and became more agitated. He bickered about the sharks and mentioned he had to eat his way out. Chimera was angered. Coyote threatened to eat him, too. Chimera turned and ate him. At the end of the mission, Waller noticed Coyote was missing. She checked his tracer and realized it was inside Chimera. Waller concluded the team was too big anyway.
