The Dothraki are a people who live east of the Nine Free Cities. They have copper skin and dark almond eyes. Their horse-lords have drooping mustaches bound with metal rings. The wear their hair is long braids tied with a tiny bell from each kill. The sound of the bells frighten would-be opponents. They cut their braids in shame whenever they lose a battle. They believe that any important event in a man's life must take place out of doors. They are true to their word, but they do things in their own time.
Among the khalasar, men often mate with any women they desire, and fight at the slightest provocation. A wedding without at least three deaths is considered dull.
