Sherlock Holmes is the legendary great detective who solves even the most
baffling cases with astute observation, deductive reasoning and very
little people skills. As a "consulting detective," he favors reason and
logic above all else and makes very few personal attachments beyond
those that benefit him. He calls himself a "high functioning sociopath"
because he does not make friends or understand emotions very well,
beyond what can be studied. He would make a superior criminal if he were
so inclined, but instead he assists the police, and Detective Inspector
Greg Lestrade, on their most baffling cases.
Because he has no
interest in emotions, he makes no effort to protect those of other
people and often comes across as rude, blunt or even cruel, especially
to Molly Hooper, the coroner, who has a crush on him.
to Molly, the other people in the world he cares about are Mrs. Hudson,
his landlady, who tolerates him keeping science experiments in the
fridge and shooting holes in the walls; Detective Inspector Greg
Lestrade with New Scotland Yard and Dr. John Watson, who starts out as
his roommate and quickly becomes his assistant and chronicler on cases.
Sherlock has a brother, Mycroft, from whom he is estranged. Mycroft goes so far as to refer to himself as
arch enemy, yet they do help each other out when it is absolutely
necessary. Sherlock's actual nemesis is master criminal James Moriarty,
who is as intelligent as Sherlock, but uses his wits for crime.
Sherlock doesn't have girlfriends, but is intrigued by Irene Adler, an
intelligent criminal and high end escort.
