|Appearances||Sherlock Holmes (2013 TV series)|
|Portrayed by||Alexey Gorbunov|
Professor James Moriarty is the arch-enemy of Sherlock Holmes. Whilst he appears to be a respectable Cabman, James Moriarty is in fact a criminal mastermind who is linked to a massive network of crime and deception.
He is a mathematics professor turned the world's only consulting criminal. His genius is equal to, if not perhaps greater than, Holmes himself.
Moriarty has been proven to be the most dangerous of all the criminals that Holmes has ever encountered.
Moriarty was extremely intelligent, shockingly self-controlled and immensely cunning and callous. He was a brilliant tactician and a deadly strategist, nearly outsmarting Sherlock Holmes. His demise was partially due to a single ounce of carelessness.
Moriarty was formidably elusive and incredibly manipulative. He had something of an analytical and psychopathic attitude towards others and was able to predict other people's actions with a single glance. He was well-connected and highly respected among political terms in nations stretching further than Europe itself.
