Holmes can often be quite dispassionate and cold; however, when hot on the trail of a mystery, Holmes can display a remarkable passion despite his usual languor. He has a flair for showmanship and often prepares dramatic traps to capture the culprit of a crime which are staged to impress Watson or one of the Scotland Yard inspectors (e.g., Inspector Lestrade at the end of "The Norwood Builder" or the capture of Jonathan Small in The Sign of Four). He also holds back his chain of reasoning, not revealing it or giving only cryptic hints and surprising results, until the very end, when he can explain all of his deductions at once. His deductive reasoning allows Holmes to figure out a stranger's former/present occupation such as a Retired Sergeant of Marines (A Study in Scarlet); a former ship's carpenter turned pawnbroker ("The Red-Headed League"); and a billiard-marker and a retired artillery NCO ("The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter"). Inanimate objects present a challenge to Holmes: Watson's pocket Watch ("The Sign of the Four"); Henry Baker's hat ("The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle"); Grant Munroe's pipe ("The Adventure of the Yellow Face"); Dr. Mortimer's walking stick ("The Hound of the Baskervilles"); two cut ears pointing to murder ("The Adventure of the Cardboard Box").

He is also quite an actor, in several of his adventures he has feigned being wounded or ill to give effect to his case, or to incriminate the people involved, as in "The Adventure of the Dying Detective". In the case of Irene Adler, Holmes staged a brawl, and a fire to get her to give away the hiding place of her picture. This worked at first, but after his departure she realised what had occurred and immediately left the country but leaving a different picture behind with a note to Holmes explaining her actions. Among persons Holmes impersonates are a drunken groom; a simple minded minister; an Italian priest; an opium addict; an eccentric bookseller; a seaman; a common loafer; a plumber.

Holmes is generally quite fearless. He dispassionately surveys horrific, brutal crime scenes; he does not allow superstition (as in The Hound of the Baskervilles) or grotesque situations to make him afraid; and he intrepidly confronts violent murderers. He is generally unfazed by threats from his criminal enemies, and indeed Holmes himself remarks that it is the danger of his profession that has attracted him to it. The only thing that truly bothers Holmes is boredom, and he can become very agitated and upset when there is no case set before him. Although Holmes at times acts like a disembodied brain, there are times when he admits to personal feelings - as when he scolds a banker (The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet) or sternly reproves the Duke of Holdernesse (The Adventure of the Priory School); or when he lets a killer go free (The Adventure of the Devil's Foot) or shows concern for Watson (The Adventure of the Empty House, The Adventure of the Three Garridebs).


[edit] Use of weapons and martial arts
On occasion Holmes and Watson carry pistols with them; however, these weapons are only used on seven occasions.

In The Sign of the Four, they both fire at the Andaman Islander.
In The Hound of the Baskervilles, both Holmes and Watson fire at, and between them manage to kill, the hound.
In The Adventure of the Copper Beeches, Watson fires at and kills the mastiff.
In The Adventure of the Empty House, Watson pistol-whips Colonel Sebastian Moran.
In The Adventure of the Three Garridebs, Holmes pistol-whips Killer Evans after Watson is shot.
In The Musgrave Ritual, it is revealed that Holmes decorated the wall of their flat with a patriotic "V.R." (Victoria Regina) done in bullet marks.
In The Problem of Thor Bridge, Holmes uses Watson's revolver in a reconstruction of the crime.

Holmes brandishing a weapon.In four stories Holmes has a pistol but does not fire it: The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet, The Adventure of the Final Problem, The Adventure of the Dancing Men, The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist.

Besides a pistol, Holmes twice uses a riding crop/cane as a weapon. In "The Red-Headed League," he uses it to knock the pistol from John Clay's hand, and in "The Adventure of the Speckled Band" he uses it to lash out at the snake. In "A Case of Identity," Holmes comes close to thrashing Windibank the swindler with a riding crop. In A Study in Scarlet, Watson remarks on how Holmes is a expert in fighting with a singlestick and a sword-yet in none of the Doyle literature on Holmes is Holmes directly portrayed using either weapon.[6] Holmes does employ a walking cane to defend himself in "The Adventure of the Illustrious Client"; however, this occurs while Watson is not present, and the reader only learns of it after the fact.

Holmes is also reckoned a formidable fist-fighter, though his prowess is only reported second-hand. In The Sign of the Four, Holmes introduces himself to the prize-fighter McMurdo as "the amateur who fought three rounds with you at Alison's rooms on the night of your benefit four years back." McMurdo responds by saying, "Ah, you're one that has wasted your gifts, you have! You might have aimed high, if you had joined the fancy." In The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist, Holmes gets the better of Woodley with a straight left; in "The Adventure of the Empty House," Holmes remarks how a criminal named Matthews had knocked out Holmes's left canine tooth at Charing Cross Station.

In "The Adventure of the Empty House," Holmes recounts to Watson how he used martial arts to overcome Professor Moriarty and fling his adversary to his death at the Reichenbach Falls. He states: "I have some knowledge, however, of baritsu, or the Japanese system of wrestling, which has more than once been very useful to me."

"Baritsu" was a drafting error on the author's part who meant to refer to the real martial art of Bartitsu. Despite this, for a while at least, it still acquired some notoriety all of its own.


[edit] Knowledge and skills

Sherlock Holmes (right) and Dr. Watson, by Sidney Paget.In the very first story, A Study in Scarlet, something of Holmes's background is given. In early 1881, he is presented as an independent student of chemistry with a variety of very curious side interests, almost all of which turn out to be single-mindedly bent towards making him superior at solving crimes. An early story, "The Adventure of the Gloria Scott", presents more background on what influenced Holmes to become a detective: a college friend's father complimented him very highly on his deductive skills. Holmes always uses scientific methods and focuses on logic and the powers of observation and deduction.

In A Study in Scarlet, Holmes claims he does not know that the Earth revolves around the sun. Dr. Watson subsequently assesses Holmes's abilities thus
