Intelligence: Genius. Sherlock's most notable trait is his genius level of intelligence. He is capable of making near accurate deductions just by observing objects, locations, and even people. On his first meeting with John Watson, he was able to accurately deduce that the latter was a retired army doctor who served in Afghanistan and wanted to find a flatmate to share the cost of a flat. He has described his brain as sometimes moving too fast for him, and one time even weighed a bag just by holding it in his hand for a brief moment. His "Mind Palace", as he calls it, is capable of storing an enormous amount of information that can help him solve crimes, run fast enough to go through the proper procedures of surviving a gunshot before hitting the floor, and even simulate an entire murder mystery while under the effect of drugs.
Weaknesses: To cope with the loss of his childhood friend, Sherlock abused narcotics, changed his personality, and unconsciously manifested a false memory of owning a pet dog named Redbeard in place of his memories of Victor and completely forgotten his institutionalised sister. Should he need to make space in his brain, he will "delete" memories he deems unimportant. Sherlock will not hesitate to sacrifice himself, or even murdering people, for the sake of the people closest to him.
