Sherlock Holmes053520Sherlock is the master of deduction, a consulting detective, the only one in the world as he invented the job. He's brilliant, a proper genius, and doesn't he know it. Should you ever meet him, he will no doubt read your family history in your mobile phone and your occupation in the way you hold yourself. Be warned though, he is not a man who has time for social graces, so you may find him more than just a little insulting at times, but you mustn't be offended if he calls you an idiot, he thinks practically everyone is!//www.arealme.com/which-sherlock-character-are-you/show/1.png
John Watson530355If you were looking for John Watson, and you knew the signs, you would probably be looking for a man with a history of military service, nerves of steel with strong moral principle, and a crack shot marksman acclimatised to violence… oh,and a Doctor.//www.arealme.com/which-sherlock-character-are-you/show/2.png
Jim Moriarty055420James “Jim” Moriarty was the world's only “consulting criminal”; a stark contrast to his nemesis', Sherlock Holmes', similarly unrivalled “consulting detective” occupation.//www.arealme.com/which-sherlock-character-are-you/show/3.png
Mycroft Holmes350452The elder Holmes is not in fact a Criminal Mastermind. He might claim to hold a minor position in the British Government, but the truth is, he IS the British Government. Well, when he's not too busy being the British Secret Service of course, or the C.I.A on a freelance basis. Chances are, if you find the London congestion is bad on your way home tonight, it could well be due to Mycroft having started a war, as you can't imagine what that sort of thing does to the traffic.//www.arealme.com/which-sherlock-character-are-you/show/4.png
Greg Lestrade530355Known for being just a little sarcastic, especially to those who he really shouldn't like Daily Mail reporters, Lestrade is the best that Scotland Yard has to offer. A Detective Inspector, he is at the top of his game, or rather he would be, were it not for a certain Consulting Detective he knows and often goes to when it's one of those funny cases he likes.//www.arealme.com/which-sherlock-character-are-you/show/5.png
Charles Augustus Magnussen055410One of the most powerful media publishers in the world, Magnussen sells papers and makes news by knowing the things his victims don't want made public. Despite attracting enemies both large and small, he is able to overcome anyone with a simple threat thanks to the reach he holds, capable of destroying anyone without any form of violence. To Magnussen, Information is Power.//www.arealme.com/which-sherlock-character-are-you/show/6.png
Mrs Martha Louise Hudson413235A widow after her husband got himself sentenced to death in Florida, Mrs. Hudson now rents out the other two flats in her building. Currently 221B is occupied by Sherlock Holmes, who was able to help her out by ensuring her husband got the death penalty, and Dr. John Watson. The flat does have a second bedroom, not that Mrs. Hudson suspects they'll be needing two bedrooms, but they're quite broad-minded in Baker Street, after all Mrs. Turner next door's got married ones.//www.arealme.com/which-sherlock-character-are-you/show/7.png
Molly Hooper410353Molly spends her days slicing up human cadavers. There's no nicer way of putting it, not to mention her occupation does tend to mean she doesn't want to “be doing” roast pork in St. Bart's canteen. Although let's face it, the place is never going to trouble Egon Ronay.//www.arealme.com/which-sherlock-character-are-you/show/8.png
Irene Adler353523Professionally known as 'The Woman', Irene Adler provides, shall we say, recreational scolding for those who enjoy that sort of thing and are prepared to pay for it. There are many names for what she does, but she prefers 'Dominatrix'.//www.arealme.com/which-sherlock-character-are-you/show/9.png
Mary Watson453432She worked as a nurse in the same clinic as her husband John Watson, whom she met sometime after his best friend Sherlock Holmes' supposed death. She and John have a daughter named Rosamund Mary. She was killed by Vivian Norbury when trying to save Sherlock from being shot.//www.arealme.com/which-sherlock-character-are-you/show/10.png
