Cobra Pharaoh Keshik (Clan Cloud Cobra)

Cobra Pharaoh Keshik
Unit Profile (as of 3067)
Parent Formation None
Formed 2832


Cobra Pharaoh Keshik is one of two keshiks within the Clan Cloud Cobra Touman, serving as the personal bodyguard and command staff for the Cloud Cobra's Khan. Unlike other Clans, the Khan's keshik is separate from his touman's Alpha Galaxy, a deliberate decision made by Khan Rafe Kardaan in 2832 because "True leadership calls for delegation, for trust in subordinates".[1]

Cobra Pharaoh Keshik, along with Cobra Temple Keshik and the Clan's two Naval Reserves, combine into a demi-Galaxy formation. Since Khan Din Steiner took command, Cobra Pharaoh Keshik has not seen combat as a complete unit, its elements instead used to reinforce other Galaxies.[1]

The Keshik is stationed in 3067 on Strana Mechty.[2]


As of 3037 to 3067 the commanding officer was Khan Din Steiner.[1][2]


Because of their duty protecting the Clan's holdings on Homer, Cobra Pharaoh Keshik excels at fighting in hilly or mountainous terrain.[1]
