The Toughai are the "People of the Forest" of the planet Simarka. They may be descended from ancient Mongol tribes from Earth. Turghan, the chieftain of the Toughai, strictly follows the old laws which forbid a woman to speak or to show her face in public. The old ways were challenged by Moughal, chieftain of the rival Shavadai tribe.
