The red race is the dominant race on Barsoom. These red men are the result of centuries of interbreeding between the ancient white, black, and yellow races. They are generally similar to North American Indians in appearance with coppery complexions and black hair. They wear little clothing other than a simple cloak when in cold climates. Their harness is their primary garment, composed of leather belts with areas to put their weapons and a simple pouch inlaid with the ‘metal’ of their home city. As with all Martian races, Red Martians have a life expectancy of approximately one thousand years and they only begin to age at the very end of this life span. However, few Martians live their full one thousand years due to the incessant wars and dangers of Barsoom.

Note: Red warriors favor the sword as their weapon, and pay little if any attention to the pistol and rifle. Some warriors may have the skill Naval Gunnery.
