The Keshik is the personal unit of a Clan's Khan, a combination of bodyguard and command staff.[1][2] Sometimes the saKhan and/or Galaxy Commanders will also have a Keshik.

The size of a Keshik ranges from a Binary to a whole Cluster and is traditionally commanded by the Khan himself, though day-to-day matters are handled by a Star Colonel.[1][2] Only the best warriors of a Clan are deployed. Additionally, they are equipped with the best technology available. However, as such high-ranking commanders rarely enter battle, the Keshiks also rarely see battle-action.
