Mycroft Holmes

Mycroft Holmes

Mycroft has two critically important jobs: running the British government and managing his little brother. He’s always been a tough critic of Sherlock’s lack of discipline and tendency to get too close to other people, and Mycroft would be the first to make clear that Sherlock’s intelligence is nowhere near his own. But blood does count for something, and Sherlock will find that all those years that Mycroft was criticizing and correcting him, the elder Holmes was actually teaching his little brother a skill that would save him when it counted most.
