I told you. You and I have the same religion: Gold. (Henry: Who are you? I know damn well that you're not a preacher.) No. I'm just another greedy American just like yourself. (Henry: I'm not like you!) Oh, come on now, Henry. If you and anyone should understand, with all this gold, they aren't miners? They never came up here. Who would it hurt? (Henry: Who? Your starved these people! You stole from them at the same time!) That's not the way I planned it. I thought they'd move. (Henry: You're sick, mister. And you'll burn in Hell.) Harsh words, Henry. Very harsh words. But I'm not gonna let you turn on your own people. I'm prepared to offer a piece of everything we take from this mine from here on in. What do you say? (Henry: It's not yours to give.) Oh, sure it is Henry. (Henry: Get back!) Do we have a deal!?!
~ Reverend Leland Drury to Henry before getting shot by him.
Reverend Leland Drury (simply known as Leland Drury) is the main antagonist of Disney's 1994 live action film White Fang 2: Myth of the White Wolf (the sequel to Disney's 1991 live-action film, White Fang). He is a treacherous preacher who wants to force Lily Joseph's tribe move by starving them so he can take their gold. He was Henry Casey's arch-nemesis until he led him to his demise by a herd of caribou.
He was portrayed by the legendary British actor, Alfred Molina, who would go on to play Maxim Horvath in fellow Disney film The Sorcerer's Apprentice and Doctor Octopus in Spider-Man 2.
Role in the film
When Henry goes back to town after meeting a Native American tribe, he sees many hungry people, and Leland explains the poor state the town is in. The same day, White Fang spots Lilly's village, and when Lilly sees him, she calls her uncle to show him that it was the wolf she'd seen by the river the day she found Henry. As Moses tries to get a closer look, White Fang is startled and runs away.
When Henry and Lilly fall into a mine, they discover that Leland is behind the blockade, as he is running an illegal mining operation. They decide to steal some dynamite to clear the path, but along the way Henry spots Leland, and in anger over his betrayal tries to shoot him. Lilly stays behind to give Henry time to escape, and she is captured by the miners. Henry escapes the mine, and White Fang defends him from the remaining miners while he sets the dynamite. The explosion clears the path and frees the animals.
Henry and White Fang go back to save Lilly. As White Fang holds off Leland, Henry frees Lilly, and they make to escape. The screw on the carriage comes loose, sending the carriage careening towards a cliff as the horses run off. Henry and Lilly jump clear before they go over, and Leland catches onto the cliff edge. Leland is shocked to find the animals running free. Before he can do any more harm, he is trampled to death by the very animals he had imprisoned.
