Tall and rangy in build, the Untash have coppery skin, long, straight dark hair, and glittering black eyes. Their beards--when they have them--are sparse and thin, although braided or adorned moustaches are not uncommon. They tend to dress in natural, undyed bison buckskins.
Although some trade and other relations exist between northern and southern Untash (with the new eastern Untash forming a recently separated group from the southerners), Untash tribesmen are often as likely to fall upon each other with violence as they are anyone else they encounter. While their raiders are rightly feared, when encountered on their own lands by small groups, they can be friendly and hospitable. Many Untash clans have also actively encouraged trade across their lands, offering protection and guides to caravans for a price, of course. In most cases this is little more than a protection shakedown racket, but they do provide a valuable service, and a caravan with a few Untash guides and warriors is very unlikely to be attacked by another clan, and the guides provide valuable knowledge of the lands through which the caravan must pass.
