Personality[edit | edit source]
Sherlock is a very intelligent person, a cheerful person most of the time. According to Watson, Holmes is an eccentric person, with no regard for societal norms in terms of arrangement and organization. What others seem to be messy or worthless, he sees is a wealth of useful information. Holmes is barbaric with his actions, dealings, and even his personal life. Holmes smokes a lot, "unlike the original story of smoking a pipe." He is also addicted to drugs, Holmes used to use drugs from time to time, especially when there were no issues on his mind and exhausted his powers in solving them. Watson did not approve of his drug use. As a physician, he always objected to Holmes being a heavy smoker.
Sometimes Holmes breaks laws in order to solve a case, such as lying to the police, hiding evidence, or breaking into private homes and properties. As shown in Arc Study in Scarlet, Holmes took the wedding ring found at the crime scene without the attention of the police, describing himself to Watson afterwards as having the talent to be a thief. He is also good at handling locks and closed doors.
Holmes has overconfidence and a murderous arrogance that sometimes reaches the limits of arrogance, and if this is justified, he always sees with his own eyes the police investigators standing helpless in front of his amazing conclusions, and yet he was not looking for fame, as he usually allowed the police to have all Appreciation and praise even if the case was resolved thanks to his findings.
Most of those who deal with him always describe him as rude in his behavior, just as Miss Hudson described him as a clumsy child, but despite this, Watson said that Holmes was kind-hearted.
Holmes' feelings and actions can be described as cold and hard, and his heart is so tough that despite being in the midst of an adventure and dangers surrounding him, he could shine with a number of emotional notes that did not fit the difficult situation. Holmes is also talented in showcasing, and he also has a strong presence, and he is distinguished in preparing traps through which he can catch the culprit in the act of flagrante delicto, and he often does so in a certain way that dazzles Watson, or one of Scotland Yard inspectors.
Holmes has an aversion to women, but he cares about them in a special way. "I am not a fan of female sex," says Holmes, but he wanted to save Irene Adler from Moriarty even though he admired her only for her intelligence and her cunning.
