..has a pronounced dislike and distrust of women -- the only joy he gets from their company is the problems they bring to him to solve
..has in his memory a veritable storehouse of information on various topics and fields of expertise, but with particular focus to details of sensational literature
..described as an "omnivorous reader with a strangely retentive memory for trifles"
..superbly well-read, his speech is replete with references to the Bible, Shakespeare, and even Goethe
