# Can a knowledge check be used to identify the powers of a unique named enemy?

In Encounter 29: Arena of Kord in Madness at Gardmore Abbey the players face an enemy leader called:

Leralix, Minotaur Magus (L) Level 9 Controller (Leader)


Because Leralix is a unique named monster, I don't see how knowledge about a group of monsters, in this case minotaurs, would really help identify the powers of a unique boss.

What is the official ruling on knowledge checking the powers of unique monsters?
