The Gaalsien are a zealotous Kiith, or clan, of the Kushan in Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak. They are the game's primary antagonists.

Summary[edit | edit source]

As one of the oldest clans on Kharak, the Kiith Gaalsien are a very powerful, yet fanatical sect. As one of the three main religious clans (the others being the Kiith Ferriil and Kiith Somtaaw), they were one of the earliest spiritual and political forces to dominate the landscape. The Kiith Gaalsien were all but wiped out during the Heresey Wars, a war between the Kiith Gaalsien (who believed that they were cast down to Kharak by the gods as a punishment) and the Kiith Siidim (who believed the Kharaki were native to Kharak, and were not being punished). After this war, which resulted in the destruction of the holy city of Saju-ka, the Gaalsien were outlawed, and became a nomadic desert tribe, forgoing their long-established cities and villages to Kharak. They now roam the Great Banded Desert, but have recently declared a sort of quasi-war against the Coalition for defying their God's one commandment - do not explore space. Notably they are space desert muslim aryans.
