- "This is not an idle diversion, acolyte. A short while ago, there was what we call an "unauthorized murder" here in the academy. A rivalry among apprentices resulted in death."
- ―Zyn, to the Sith Inquisitor
During the Cold War, Zyn learned of a murder inside the Sith Academy's walls, and captured and tortured a witness named Alif for more information about the incident. Overseer Harkun sent a Sith Acolyte to Zyn as part of the apprentice's trials, and Zyn permitted the acolyte to finish the questioning and reveal the killer's name.
