"My father does not care about me. He does what he does out of a sense of familial obligations."
Sherlock Holmes[src]



According to Sherlock Holmes, Morland Holmes doesn't care about his son, and only does what he does out of a sense of familial obligations. Sherlock says he is a serial absentee, and that he has been so since Sherlock was a boy.[1] he sent Sherlock to boarding school when he was eight years old.[2] He owns five properties in New York,[3] although he does not live there.[1] When Sherlock becomes addicted to drugs, he checks Sherlock into a rehabilitation facility in New York. After six months, he moves into one of his father's properties. Mr. Holmes told Sherlock that if he started to use drugs again, or refuse Joan Watson's help as his sober companion, he would throw him out of the brownstone he lives in and out on the street.[3]
