The Kashik were an elite organization from the Hordelands during the 14th century DR.[1][2]


10,000 men comprised the Kashik. They were formed from the most elite members of the army.[1]


Only members of the Kashik were allowed to wear special black kalats, easily making them stand out from the common soldiers.[1]


The Kashik served as the personal bodyguard of the Great Khan. Day and night shifts helped prevent any assassination attempts on their lord.[1] Day guards were called turguts and night guards were called kebtuts.[2]
