The K'ghaan was a Ssi-ruuvi term which loosely translated to mean "Hidden Claw" and referred to a group of black scaled Ssi-ruu. These individuals were taken from their families in order to be trained as assassins and bodyguards for the Ssi-ruuvi Imperium's leader; His Potency the Shreeftut. They were believed to serve as the secret police for their master and worked in a similar manner as Imperial Intelligence.
