A true Inuit person, my ancestors, have a rounded, kind of chubby face, high cheekbones, almond shaped dark brown eyes, dark brown/black hairs. Epicanthic fold, but not present amongst all inuit. Flat nose-bridge, flatter face in general, usually shorter than other people, dark skin and the skin is thick, the eyelids are thick and the face is structured to defend from the cold wind of the arctic. The hair is thick, sleek and naturally oily. Strongly built and perfectly adapted to the cold :)
