I told you. You and I have the same religion: Gold.
~ Reverend Leland Drury to Henry.
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 malicious and greedy preacher who wants to force Lily Joseph's tribe to move by starving them so he can mine for gold.
He was portrayed by 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.
At Moses' village, Leland tries to talk him off their land before his tribe starves to death.
The next day, Henry and White Fang are knocked off into the river's current and Henry is saved by Lily. Meanwhile, White Fang was left at the river, but managed to save himself. As he makes his way through the wilderness to find Henry, White Fang finds a wolf pack that he follows for a short time. Henry ultimately decides not to join them, and continues his journey.
Henry went back to the town and saw many starving people and Leland explains the poor state the town is in. After Leland learns that Henry wants to help the tribe return their caribou, he orders his assistant, Mr. Heath to assassinate Henry. Heath tries to take aim, but Henry's mule blocks his way, causing him to flee.
Later, Leland goes to the village to offer Henry to go home by giving him gold, but Henry refuses. Leland confronts Henry and threatens him as White Fang begins to snarl at him. Leland then tries to pray for Henry, but Henry isn't interested. Leland then orders Heath to get the miners ready to stop Henry before he goes to Devil's Thumb.
When the time of the hunting came, Henry, with White Fang and Peter goes to the forest. Lily grabs her bow and secretly slips into the forest to join Henry hunt. Henry and Joseph then see that the village's hunters that didn't return. Henry accidentally steps into a trap, resulting in a log to be swung towards him, but successfully evades it. Peter goes up to the dead body of the hunter that didn't listen to Henry, who said not to go there, then a bullet hit the dead body, and Henry saw it. Peter ran tree by tree, with the miner chasing him. Henry and White Fang continue traveling, and Henry stepped on a trap. As the miner aims at Henry, Lily shoots her arrow at the miner. The man ran away, and his hiding area explodes.
When they arrive at their final destination, Henry saw the path that blocks the animals. They went back and, they accidentally fall into a hole, which led them to the mining area. They knock the miner guarding the dynamite unconscious and get the dynamite that will open the path blocking the animals. They discover that Leland is behind the blockade and is running the mining operation. Reverend Leland tries to convince him to mine with him, but Henry shoots him. Reverend Leland orders his miners to catch him. Henry saw an exit, but Lily gives time for Henry to escape and is captured by the miners. White Fang guards him from the miners while he plants the dynamite to the path. Leland tries to escape with Lily and his gold as the explosion frees the caribou.
Henry and White Fang then follow Leland as they try to save Lily. White Fang jumps and attacks Leland while Henry jumps on the wagon to rescue her. Henry unties Lily, and when the screw combining the horses and the wagon was removed, it separated the carriage and the wagon fell off a cliff as they both jumped off. Leland tries to rush to his gold as he climbs back up the cliff and is shocked to see the caribou running. He tries to outrun them, but trips over and is trampled to death by the very animals he had imprisoned.
There is something of yours I want. Your soul, Moses. Your soul. (Moses: Safe trip back.) You wonder why God is punishing you? (Moses: We've done nothing to anger your god.) And yet, your people are starving. There must be a reason for that. (Moses: My grandfather spoke often of the time when the caribou would disappear, a time when the thunder in the earth would be followed by the coming of the wolf. If we are patient, we will be instructed to restore the balance.) These are stories, Moses. You cannot live your life by that. (Moses: In your book, there are stories.) If you care for your people, you'll take them to live with your relatives on the island. (Moses: You wear the same collar as the one before you, but your words are hollow.) Reverend Michael underestimated the situation. Why let this suffering continue? Move your people before it's too late.
~ Reverend Leland trying to tell Moses to move his tribe before they starve to death.
Do you understand the problem? I want him out of the way. Here's the problem now! Do it now!
~ Reverend Leland ordering Mr. Heath to assassinate Henry.
(Mr. Heath: He's just a boy, Leland.) That boy could ruin everything! Do I have to do everything myself!?
~ Reverend Leland to Mr. Heath.
A friend of mine is shipping a lot of gold to Fort Tongass. We need someone to help we can trust. It pays $1,000. That's enough to get you home and safe, but you have to leave today. (Henry: I can't do that. I gave Moses my word.) (Moses: Tomorrow, White Wolf leads a hunt to Devil's Thumb.) White Wolf? (Moses: Henry Casey.)
~ Reverend Leland trying to trick Henry by selling him gold.
I'm losing my patience with you Henry! These people might think you're something special, but I know you're not! Now, I'm warning you! Don't go back up that mountain! (Henry: Warning me? What kind of religion are you?) Same as you, boy. (Henry: I don't know who you are, or what you want with these people, but I know it ain't right. So, why don't you pack up your things and get out of here?) (Reverend Leland grabs Henry and White Fang snarls at him) Don't show off my expense. I'll come back and haunt you. (Henry: I said get outta here!)
~ Reverend Leland trying to forbid Henry from coming to Devil's Thumb.
(Henry: Stop, or I'll put a bullet between your eyes!) Is that you, Henry? Congratulations. You're the first one to get through. (Henry: Get back!) You sound very sinister, Henry. I've told you, you and I, we have the same religion. Gold. (Henry: Who are you? I sure as hell know 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. You, if anyone, should understand. All this gold. They aren't miners. They never came up here. Who would it hurt? (Henry: Who? You 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 out of 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 to Henry before getting shot by him.
That's my gold. That's my gold...
~ Reverend Leland's last words.
Reverend Leland trying to convince Moses to move before his people starve to death.
Reverend Leland ordering Heath to assassinate Henry.
Reverend Leland offering Henry gold to keep him from foiling his plan.
Reverend Leland discovering that Henry is gonna find the caribou.
Reverend Leland warning Henry not to go up Devil's Thumb.
Reverend Leland was originally going to have Adam John Hale as his major, but the scenes were cut.
There are a couple hints that foreshadow Reverend Leland's nature:
When Moses leaves after telling Leland about how the wolf would save his tribe, Leland gives out a suspicious stare as he leaves.
When Henry comes out of Heath's store and sees the starving people, Reverend Leland comes out and looks at Henry while saying "Sad, isn't it?" as eerie music starts to play. This slowly reveals that he stole the caribou from them.
Despite being the main antagonist, he only had 18 minutes of screentime, but the fact that he stole the caribou so he could mine for gold is what drove the plot of the film.
