Sherlock Holmes (シャーロック・ホームズ, Shārokku Hōmuzu?)



His True Name is Sherlock Holmes (シャーロック・ホームズ, Shārokku Hōmuzu?). Sherlock Holmes is the world's most famous detective, the genuine father of all detectives. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novels were the memoirs of his companion and assistant, Dr. John Watson.[1] He works as a consulting detective in London and is famously based in a flat at 221B Baker Street. He has handled many requests, and has definitely gotten a fair share of serious cases from the London Metropolitan Police Department (Scotland Yard), some of which even involved the English government. He has a doctorates in medicine, economics and law and is a member of the Royal Society, he is especially well-versed in pharmacy.[2]

Sherlock and Watson were investigating the death of Henry Jekyll. Sherlock received a letter prior from his death, the letter explains about his failed experiment and his Hyde persona. Sherlock was convinced that the Clock Tower was involved with "The incident of Jack the Ripper".[2]


According to Bedivere, Sherlock gives off the same odor as Merlin.[1] Character art also depicts him wearing a cape and smoking from a pipe, both of which are recurring elements from the original stories and in many later adaptations in film and television.


“My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people don't know.”

—Holmes in "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle"

Holmes is famous for his deductive mind and believes in taking cases for the sake of justice and as an intellectual pursuit rather than for fame, fortune or glory.

Sir Babbage has tasked Sherlock to uncover a mystery.[1]

His Noble Phantasms are Absolute Reasoning (絶対推理, Zettai Suiri?) and Bartitsu (バリツ, Baritsu?). (The latter was the method he used to defeat his nemesis, Professor Moriarty, as disclosed in The Adventure of the Empty House, the first Holmes story published by Conan Doyle after Holmes was thought to have died in The Final Problem.)
