SHERLOCK WALL SKULL. TEEFURY RIGHT NOW!
Not at all =) To make it easy for both of us, I’m simply going to quote Wikipedia:
Colonel Sebastian Moran is a fictional character, an enemy of Sherlock Holmes and the villain of the Sherlock Holmes short story The Adventure of the Empty House. Holmes once described him as “the second most dangerous man in London”- the most dangerous being Professor Moriarty.
A devoted sportsman and highly skilled shot, he was author of the books Heavy Game of the Western Himalayas in 1881 and Three Months in the Jungle in 1884, and reportedly once crawled down a drain after a wounded man-eating tiger.
He soon turned to the bad (Holmes attributes this to a hereditary trait), and although there was no open scandal he was obliged to retire from the army and return to London. Outwardly respectable, with an address in Conduit Street, Mayfair and membership of the (fictional) Anglo-Indian Club, the Tankerville Club and The Bagatelle Card Club, he nevertheless continued in his evil ways. He was soon recruited by the criminal mastermind Professor Moriarty, and served for a time as his chief of staff. Maintained in a comfortable lifestyle by Moriarty, Moran soon came to be used solely for assassinations that required his peculiar skill with the rifle, including that of Mrs Stewart of Lauder in 1887. On the break-up of the Moriarty crime ring in The Final Problem (early 1891), Moran escaped incrimination, and followed the Professor to Reichenbach Falls. After witnessing his chief’s death at the hands of Holmes, Moran attempted to kill the detective by rolling boulders down upon him, but Holmes escaped. Now left without employment, Moran earned a living back in London by playing cards at several clubs.
For more about him and his relationship to Moriarty is suggest you look it up, or read stories such as The Final Problem and The Empty House by ACD.
In the Sherlockian fandom (fanart, fanfics and so on), Sebastian is often protrayed as Moriarty’s best friend, loyal associate and/or lover.
But up to this point, Sebastian Moran hasn’t appeared in the BBC Sherlock (as far as we know). But you can find him in the movie Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.
Or more specific: Can you think of an actress/model etc. that looks like a Femlock?
(I need help!)
