The Keshig served as the personal Honour Guard of Jaghatai Khan and as his subordinate commanders during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy eras in the late-30th and early 31st Millennia. The Keshig also served as a bodyguard for the Noyan-Khans (Chapter Masters) who commanded the Ordus (Divisions) of the V Legion. This elite cadre of Astartes warriors was made up of the most veteran and skilled Legionaries to be found in the V Legion, serving as the Legion's elite Terminators. The Keshig was once described as "a whole phalanx of giants in bone-white Terminator plate."
