Led by Kematu, the Alik'r Coterie arrives in Whiterun, searching for a Redguard woman accused of treason. Saadia, working as a bar-maid at The Bannered Mare, is the alleged traitor, accused of selling Hammerfell out in favor of the Thalmor.
She asks the Dragonborn to assassinate the Alik'r, whom she claims are ruthless assassins. Finding them in Swindler's Den, the Dragonborn must decide whether to side with Saadia or the Alik'r.
Sometimes they are encountered in the wild, confronting various Redguard women whether or not they are the one they have been looking for.
When entering Swindler's Den during the quest "In My Time of Need", two bandits under Alik'r employment will be having a discussion in which it is revealed that the bandits are being hired to protect and/or conceal their location.
Despite being written with an apostrophe, possibly omitting a vowel, many characters in the game pronounce the word Alik'r as "ali-KEER", as if the third syllable not only contained a vowel but took primary stress as well.
