Their culture was heavily influenced by nearby An-Balkûmagân, as well as by the Fariyîn nomads to the east. The Etûlians 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 misogynist Fariyîn of the west. Etûlians, like Fariyîn, practiced the cult of Sarâda, although they were far less devout in this than the easterners.
