A khalasar is a clan-like nomadic group of Dothraki. The khalasar are led by a chief called a khal and the the heir to a khalasar is named the khalakka.

Khalasars are broken into groups, called khas, which are each led by one of the khal's captains, called khos. When a khal dies, a new khal may take control of the khalasar or the khas may break away and form new khalasars led by their former khos. The Dothraki will not follow a child khalakka. Instead the kos will fight among themselves to take the place of the fallen khal and the khalakka will be killed so as not to be a rival
