This Servant is a limited Servant. It is only available during special summoning campaigns. When no such campaigns are active, this Servant cannot be summoned. No plans have been revealed to add this Servant to the permanent summoning pool.
The world’s sole and greatest consulting detective.
The crystallization of the concept of detective; the representative of “those who reveals”.
The protagonist of the stories that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote in the 19th~20th Century, he is a detective who explains all enigmas and one of the ancestors of the “detectives” that appear on the many mystery novels of later years—-- Or so it is assumed.
But what is really the truth?

For argument’s sake, if he was really originated from the stories, then there is a possibility of not only Doyle’s novels but also its pastiches having been included... according to the Chaldea staff’s gossips.
Thoughtful and yet dynamic. Bold and yet precise. And also a calm, level-headed man.
No sort of enigma, crime and conspiracy can escape Holmes’ sight. Be that a fearsome murderer, an ancient curse, a monster of the dark night or a supranational secret society; he shall disclose them all--- and defeat them if necessary. By means of a sharp sword called truth.
If necessary, he would defeat it. With the sharp blade called the truth.
That way of being has already exceeded the realms of men, and is already the embodiment of a “wise one”, “one who reveals”.
The ability to perceive the true nature of things. His sharp eyes for observation will not overlook any sort of information. Although their principles are completely different, this can read into the future in a way that is similar to the future prediction of Clairvoyance.
Learned an Oriental martial arts that is extremely real combat-oriented.
Other than employing striking techniques that combine this skill with boxing, Sherlock Holmes also have counters and grappling throws as his forte.
If the conditions are right, he can even employ a special move that is in par with the release of True Name of a Noble Phantasm, but...

Elementary, My Dear.
The Noble Phantasm that Sherlock Holmes acquired upon manifesting as a Servant. His Origin - “Elucidation” - sublimated as a Noble Phantasm.
Even if the enigma he faces is truly an existence that cannot be explained, clues and paths for reaching the truth will always “appear”.
Even if there was a treasure chest whose key has been lost, said key will turn out to be “not lost”, and would certainly be possible to locate it somewhere in the world.
(However, as expected, it will not suddenly appear in his hands. Either Holmes or his collaborators must find it, wherever it may be).
Originally a constantly active-type of Noble Phantasm, but release of True Name is performed in “Fate/GO”.
Upon release of True Name, an unidentified “sphere” appears, emitting a dazzling light on the surroundings. It weakens the enemy camp and strengthens the ally camp. Even an against an unbeatable opponent, Holmes will discover a path to defeat him.
Also, its True Name is one of the famous words associated with Holmes, yet the first instance in which it was attributed to him was not on Doyle’s novels, but actually the stage play produced・scripted・starred by William Gillette. It has been said that Doyle praised the Holmes played by Gillete as “surpassing my novels”.
Incidentally, the common assumption is that Gillete conceived it based on Holmes’ “Elementary” remark towards Watson from Doyle’s short story - “The Adventure of the Crooked Man”.
Heroic Spirit Holmes is the fake resemblance of Dr. Joseph Bell (his model), Doyle himself, and the world oldest detective, Vidocq---
Not. He manifest as the protagonist of a novel series (or so we are lead to believe by his behavior).
In the end, is the story of Sherlock Holmes a literary creation invented by Sir Doyle, or something written down by Dr. John H. Watson as a romantic tale about the real Holmes, or maybe even a blend between these two?
At the very least, Holmes himself should know this. But he never speaks of it himself, and constantly evades the subject in a non-serious way whenever it comes up.
