Sir Leye chathead

Sir Leye is one of the Temple Knights that test your skills during the Recruitment Drive quest. You must fight him as a woman, using no armour, weapons, food, or potions. This is due to a famous legend stating that Sir Leye had been blessed by Saradomin himself, and that no "man" can defeat him.

If your character is male, you can damage him as much as you want, but even if his Hitpoints reach zero, they will automatically reset to its maximum, making him invincible. However, if you try to kill him as a female character, his health won't reset back, effectively killing him.

Out of the seven possible tests given to the player in the Training Grounds, it is guaranteed they will have to fight Sir Leye.

Fighting Sir Leye

A player fights against Sir Leye, the one no man can defeat.


  • Sir Leye's name is a play on the word "Surly".
  • His invincibility against any man may be a reference to the prophecy of Glorfindel, featured in Tolkien's novel The Lord of the Rings, for the Witch-king of Angmar fell not by "the hand of man". The prophecy fulfilled as he is killed by Éowyn, princess of Rohan.
