Fred Porlock (フレッド・ポーロック, Fureddo Pōrokku) is one of Moriarty's affiliates. He is skilled when armed with a knife and is the martial artist of the group.
Biography[edit | edit source]
During the incident with Lucien, Moriarty calls for Fred. Skilled in disguise, Fred aids him in finding Lucien before pretending to be the deceased woman. By doing this, they corner the criminal and make him confess, and later punish him.
Following William's plan on how they'll be creating crime in London and be dealing with aristocrats, Fred's connection with William grows stronger as he begins to carry out his plan and further assists him in turning it into a reality.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Fred has jet black hair, pale skin and grey eyes. His build is slim yet slightly muscular and he has bandages wrapped around both his forearms, ending just before his wrists.
He is usually seen wearing a long-sleeved white dress shirt with blue rectangle cufflinks tucked into navy blue pants, which are held up by Y-back suspenders. He wears a black coat over his shirt and has a light blue scarf around his neck that can double as a hood.
He has a pen and notebook tucked into the breast pocket of his shirt, which he uses to gather information when looking for crimes related to nobles.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Fred is rather quiet and 'unsociable' as Moran calls him when he first appears in The Dancers On The Bridge. He rarely talks unless prompted, except when reporting or adding a comment to an ongoing conversation or event.
Despite seeming withdrawn, he is a gentle and kind person at heart, shown when he heard about the children in The Hunting Of The Baskervilles, and expressed a strong desire to save them. Moran says that he is the only one among the group who is similar to William, in that both are unable to leave someone in need alone.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Fred is extremely adept at combat, being able to use different types of weapons (eg. guns, knifes, and hunting rifles), and practices martial arts (shown when he was being chased by Sherlock, using kicks and punches against him, then flipping him over when grabbed). He is agile and has a good sense of balance (being able to jump from carriage to carriage, up the alley walls to the roof and roof-hopping).
He's mainly the one spying and reporting to Moriarty, collecting information.
Origin[edit | edit source]
Fred Porlock is based off the character (of the same name) of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories.
