| Jim Moriarty |
|Main actor||Andrew Scott|
James "Jim" Moriarty is a "consulting criminal". He became obsessed with taking down his archnemesis Sherlock Holmes.
Jim was born in Ireland.
When he was young, Jim met Carl Powers. Carl was not nice to him, laughing at him regularly. In 1989 Jim carefully caused his death by poisoning his eczema medicine.
Jim became involved with the Black Lotus Tong, a Chinese smuggling syndicate. He aided their passage to England to locate the Empress pin, though when General Shan was unsuccessful he ordered her assassination.
On top of a building, Sherlock knows that if he's still alive, Moriarty's gunners will not kill any of his friends, but instead of staying alive and seeing himself losing, Moriarty pulls out a handgun and shoots himself in the head to finish his story (forcing Sherlock to jump off the roof).
