Sherlock Holmes (b. 6 Jan 1854 in Yorkshire, England) was a British consulting detective.

In "Sherlock Holmes and the Ravenclaw Codex"

Holmes was the third and youngest son of Violet Sherrinford and Captain Siger Holmes, the younger brother of Mycroft (b. 1848) and Marchmont Holmes (1845). When Sherlock was two, his eldest brother received a letter of invitation to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, though Sherlock and Mycroft did not. Sometime after 1863, Marchmont died mysteriously, and Sherlock witnessed Hogwarts professor Phineas Nigellus Black leaving the scene. Sherlock and Mycroft were the only attendants at Marchmont's funeral.

Years later, Holmes was approached by Black to find the stolen Ravenclaw Codex and the missing Godfrey Easingwold.

In "Watson's Task" and "The Ministry's Case"

Using ratiocination, he deduced the existence of magic numerous times, and was obliviated each time by agents of the British Ministry of Magic. Eventually, on the orders of Minister Diggory, squib John Hamish Watson was assigned to partner with Holmes and formally introduce him to the wizarding world. Along with Auror Artis Lupin, Holmes and Watson investigated the "Whitechapel murders."


Holmes retired to a bee farm on the Sussex Downs in 1903, where he took up the hobby of bee-keeping, eventually producing a "Practical Handbook of Bee Culture, with some Observations upon the Segregation of the Queen."
