The Keshik is the personal unit of Clan's Khan, a combination of bodyguard and command staff. Sometimes the saKhan and/or Galaxy Commanders also have a Keshik. The word Keshik originally describes the mongolian light cavalry of medieval times.
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. 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.
