"Everything is interconnected at some level; mortality means very little in the grand scheme of things."

Herlock Sholmès is a private detective who came to London upon being summoned by Scotland Yard.

His excellent physical condition and superior intellect is without peer, and his ability to remain preternaturally calm at all times is legendary. He is also a constant thorn in the side of the protagonist and her allies, though he occasionally acts as their savior. 

He makes it a point to keep his professional and private lives completely separate.[1]

He is also voiced by Kazuya Murakami in Japanese and Austin Tindle in English.



As stated above, Sholmès is very intelligent and calm, making him a great detective. He seems to not reveal much emotion and tends to stay reserved. He and Lupin are polar opposites to the point that it causes Lupin to have a severe dislike for him, while he finds Lupin to be fun to torment.

Underneath Sholmès's perfect detective outside lies an untidy and moody man who often forgets to take care of himself. He can be borderline childish at times, moping about his cleaning skills being questioned. Watson describes him as the worst kind of tenant.




  • Sholmès is loosely based on a literary character by the same name, created by French writer Maurice Leblanc, who appears mostly in stories with Arsène Lupin. Leblanc's Sholmès is also based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, but due to Doyle's existing copyright on the character, the name was changed.
