Appearance[edit | edit source]

Anime design

Patterson is a tall man with black hair and dark green eyes, accompanied by thin framed glasses with square lenses. He's usually seen wearing a black three-piece suit with a gray waistcoat and maroon tie.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Patterson appears to be a relatively quiet individual, choosing to observe events and organize from behind the scenes rather than insert himself directly; a trait that makes him well-suited to his role as an informant.

He has also shown himself to be proficient at lying, like many of the members of Moriarty's group, managing to raise no suspicion from Lestrade during his and Bond's operation to recover evidence against Arterton.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Due to his position at Scotland Yard, Patterson is essential to William James Moriarty as he relays critical information about ongoing investigations. Moriarty comments that Patterson has become even more valuable to their cause after his promotion from regular investigator to head of the CID, as having someone in the chain of command in Scotland Yard is extremely advantageous in terms of information access.

Behind the scenes, he also doubles as an informant for MI6, closely monitoring William and reporting on his activities to Albert. After William's disappearance and Albert's subsequent stepping down from MI6, Patterson is shown as one of the individuals from Moriarty's faction who continues to work diligently for MI6.

It is unknown how long Patterson has been working for the CID, nor how long he has worked with Lestrade, but due to being swiftly picked to replace Arterton after he was dismissed for misconduct it can be assumed he is held in high regard by his colleagues and superiors in the department.
