The Erutaki people are hearty whalers and mountaineers of Varisian and Tian descent especially along the Crown's coastline, the foothills near the barrier ranges, and near lakes in the southern tundra. Many are nomads who follow whales' migrations, and few form permanent settlements.
The Erutaki are defined by a clan culture. Some of the major clans are:
- Aaminiut, and several other villages in Hasanaliat.
- Darinkhuur, a Yumyzyl settlement near the seashore.
- Jaagiin, and several other villages part of the Osman Confederation.
- Ketskerlet, a Khorkii settlement on the shore.
- Kyzuv, a Yumyzyl settlement at the mouth of the Moraghiin River.
- Tuvar, the chief Ulaagor settlement on the seashore.
- Ul-Angorn, the largest Erutaki settlement in the Ruun Uvas basin.
- Unaimo, dug into a mount near Lake Yamunaq.
At some point in the distant past, some of the Erutaki people traveled south into the region of Icemark in the Lands of the Linnorm Kings where they further intermingled with the Varisian and Tian peoples. Their descendants are now known as the Varki.
