A ko is a commander within a khalasar of the Dothraki.[1]


A ko can be protected by a khas.[2] If a khal dies without a strong successor, his kos might fight amongst themselves and form their own khalasars.[3][4]

Known kos


Daenerys: I name you ko, and ask your oath, that you should live and die as blood of my blood, riding at my side to keep me safe from harm.
Aggo: I cannot say these words. Only a man can lead a khalasar or name a ko.[5]

Daenerys: Why should I fear Pono? He was Drogo's ko, and always spoke me gently.
Jorah: Ko Pono spoke you gently. Khal Pono will kill you. He was the first to abandon Drogo. Ten thousand warriors went with him. You have a hundred.[6]
