Troika is a noun that refers to a group of three united in power or acting in unison.

Our word of the day comes directly from Russian, where it refers to ‘a team of three horses.’ Its English cousin has a broader meaning and refers to any powerful group of three — regardless of species.

I was hoping to form a troika with two of my more powerful co-workers. But as it turns out, I wasn’t considered powerful to join the trio.
