UrTih wears a dark red swirled hood. He has short bangs and a dark red robe. His Skeksis counterpart is skekTek the Scientist.
UrTih the Alchemist was forever lost in his experimentations. He would seek to change the forms of things, solids into liquids, liquids into solids again. He approached his work with humility, bearing in mind the knowledge that he could not make or create anything that was Nature's work.
