Abbess Benita is the current leader of the Abbey of St Elspeth Citherede. During the quest One Piercing Note, it is revealed that she has considered retiring, and would've left Sister Anna as the abbess. However, as Sister Anna had spiraled into madness, she continues to lead the abbey, albeit with the overshadowing fear that the abbey will soon die out due to lack of applications.
Before Benita joined the abbey, she lived a peaceful life in Varrock. The bookcases in the abbey contain two books written by Benita, named 'A Commentary on the Book of Saradomin' and 'The Godwars as Allegory of the Spiritual Life'.
