One of my favourite people's in history were the Pechenegs who lived near the Urals from about 600ce to 1200ce. They prove not all Steppes horse tribes are warmongering braindead psychos, the Pechenegs were intelligent cowards.
The Pechenegs were once asked by the Byzantine Emperor to attack the Seljuk Turks. Their return message read, "that since the the Turks were both numerous and fierce, they did not wish to do this, and furthermore, they hoped the Byzantine emperor would be so tactful as to never mention the matter again."
