Alif is a non-player character in the Star Wars: The Old Republic video game, featured in the Sith Inquisitor Korriban mission, "The Plight of the Acolyte".
The player can choose to torture Alif with Force lightning, earning dark side points, or coax a confession out of him, earning light side points. Afterwards, the player can suggest to Zyn to try and protect Alif by keeping him in the cells until Kayin's master had dealt with his apprentice, either through neutral or light side dialogues. Later, Alif sends a message to the player, confirming that he testified against Kayin and lived to tell about, having been shipped off to Dromund Kaas to serve under a female Darth.
