Their culture was heavily influenced by nearby Anballukhor, as well as by the Farijin nomads to the east. The Etulians were an urban Apysaic people who had adopted many Númenorian customs as a method of social climbing. They tended to live in cities on the coast and were generally well-educated. Their women had a high status, in comparison with the fundamentalist Farijin of the west. Etulians, like Farijins, practiced the cult of Kirab Sarada, although they were far less devout in this than the easterners.
