Sherlock Holmes: The Original and Unfettered Scientist
You've got to love a character that has become an expert in tobacco and the soils of England. Doyle couldn't even kill him off, we loved him so much. I always wanted to be him when I grew up, and remember reading the complete Holmes at a local college library when I was only ten. In some small way I have become Holmes for my family: it is my duty to track down lost objects. Holmes always beat out the other detectives because he wasn't afraid to get his hands dirty. Of course, we have him recreated as more of a fighter and less of a detective in the recent movie.
