Sergeant Cleese is the warrior trainer in Gilneas City and Gilneas.

During the Burning of Teldrassil, he was seemingly evacuated with the civilians to Stormwind City.[1]

The tabard.



I can tell just by the way you're standing that you're no warrior.

Why don't you go do something safe, like read a book.

Greymane Court gossip

You're no warrior! You'd better go back inside the perimeter to where it's safe... no offense.


  • He shares the same model with Captain Broderick.
  • In the early stages of the Cataclysm beta, Sergeant Cleese wore a different tabard. It appears to show a longboat of some sort, and has not been seen in-game since. Tabards with the same color-scheme appear in Curse of the Worgen, though only one has the same symbol, and is barely noticeable. It is listed in the files for World of Warcraft as tabard_a_27seavrykul_chest.
  • His name might be a reference to the British actor John Cleese of Monty Python.
