Cobra Temple Keshik (Clan Cloud Cobra)

Cobra Temple Keshik
Unit Profile (as of 3067)
Parent Formation None


Cobra Temple 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 saKhan. Unlike other Clans, the saKhan's keshik is separate from the Clan'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 Temple Keshik, along with Cobra Pharaoh Keshik and the Clan's two Naval Reserves, combine into a demi-Galaxy formation. SaKhan Kieran Telinov has led her keshik personally in numerous operations since assuming command, mostly against incursions by Clan Smoke Jaguar.[1]

In 3067 the Keshik is stationed on Homer.[2]


As of 3052 to 3061 the commanding officer was saKhan Kieran Telinov.[1]

As of 3067 the commanding officer was saKhan Tor Kardaan.[2]


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