A khas is, according to a semi-source, a personal guard within a khalasar of the Dothraki. The men of a khas might protect a ko or a khaleesi. According to David J. Peterson, khas is an abbreviation of the full word, khasar.
A Game of Thrones
Khal Drogo assigns young archers to the khas of his khaleesi, Daenerys Targaryen. When she visits the Western Market of Vaes Dothrak, Daenerys is protected by four young men and Ser Jorah Mormont.
When Drogo's khalasar attacks a town of the Lhazareen, Daenerys has her khas stop women from being raped, and the khaleesi claims the women as her own slaves so they can be be protected. Mago, a warrior who serves in the khas of Ko Jhaqo, objects to Daenerys's actions.
Quaro, one of the men from Daenerys's khas, is slain by Qotho. After Drogo dies, Daenerys names Aggo, Jhogo, and Rakharo, the surviving members of her khas, as her kos.
