The Abyssal Sire is an abyssal demon boss that requires level 85 Slayer to kill, in addition to having assigned abyssal demons (or the Sire itself) by a Slayer master. Without either task, the Sire will "not be interested" with the player. Unlike other bosses, the sire has several stages and will use the environment to fight the players. Much like Cerberus, only the first attacker can fight the sire, unless that attacker leaves or is killed.

As with all demons, the Sire is susceptible to the effects of Silverlight, Darklight and Arclight.

The Sire is located in the Abyssal Nexus, which can be accessed via a southern entrance in the outer ring of the Runecrafting Abyss. Players entering the abyss in this manner will be skulled, unless wearing an abyssal bracelet. They will still lose all their prayer points upon entering, however. Alternatively, players who have started Fairytale II - Cure a Queen can safely reach the Nexus using the code DIP in the Fairy rings network.

According to the Overseer, the Sires were the engineers of the Abyss. They were also imprisoned in it, and as centuries of food began to deplete, they were forced to construct the Nexus, weaving demon flesh into the walls and remained in deep stasis. The Overseer tells players that when attacked, they will unleash their fury on the attacker, and that using the "shadows" would be effective against them. Their body parts also seem to have unique powers to them, as the Overseer claims that by absorbing a Sire's axon, claw and spine, it had enough power to escape the Nexus.

It can drop the Unsired, which is used at the Font of Consumption behind The Overseer to get a chance of obtaining an abyssal whip, dagger, abyssal head and untradeable parts of the abyssal bludgeon - the bludgeon axon, bludgeon claw, and bludgeon spine, as well as a very small chance at the Abyssal orphan.

Abyssal Sire Chronicle art

Abyssal Sire art from Jagex's turn-based card game Chronicle: RuneScape Legends

  • The Sire received several updates due to player complaints:
    • Shadow spells used to have a 2/3 chance of instantly disorienting the Sire[5], regardless of the type of spell used. This was changed in an update on 7 April 2016 to the current set of 25, 50, 75 and 100% rates for shadow rush, burst, blitz, and barrage as it was possible to not disorient the Sire with barrage spells which could result in a net loss during the trip.
    • Prior to an update on 31 March 2016, there was no warning when teleporting away from Sire's chambers with the Ancient Magick teleports. As the Sire is able to drop runes for these teleports, subsequent kills can result in casting teleporting spells instead. Annakarl Teleport was the most likely teleport spell used, as its spell icon was next to that of Blood Barrage, which made it likely to cause a misclick.
