Ulutiuns had dark, light brown, or yellow skin, dark hair, and dark brown eyes. They were short—rarely standing taller than five feet (150 cm)—and tended to have flat facial features, with tiny noses. They had short and thick legs with stubby fingers and toes. This tended to make them slower and less dexterous than other humans, but this was compensated by greater fortitude and strength. They had especially wide teeth. Males usually weighed between 130 and 260 pounds (60–120 kg), and females were about 35 pounds (16 kg) lighter than that.
Ulutiun males did not grow facial hair, and men and women had more fat under their skin than other humans and extra blood vessels in their extremities. These adaptive variations granted them a special resistance to living in the frigid weather of the polar regions.
They wore thick clothing made from furs and hides.
Ulutiuns were divided into four sub-groupings. The Ice Hunters lived in the west, in the regions of the the Cold Run, the Ice Peak, and the Sea of Moving Ice. The Angulutiuns, Iulutiuns, and Nakulutiuns resided in the Great Glacier.
Since metal was rare on glaciers, Ulutiun warriors had inferior weapons and armor compared to the peoples of the Cold Lands to the south, yet they were known for being ferocious in battle with a unparalleled ability to survive their arctic climates. They favored spears. If forced to fight, they battled to the death.
