After Moriarty and Milverton, Gruner is probably the most (in)famous villain in the Canon. Featured in The Illustrious Client as the killer and womaniser who counts King Edward VII amongst those who wish to see him fall.
The expert in tropical diseases who is Holmes's enemy in The Dying Detective.
The, in modern terms, cougar who disposes of the young men she once desired as if they were cast off clothes and hatches an ingenious plot to get hold of a manuscript that could expose her in The Three Gables.
The audacious bank robber touted by some as being a lieutenant of Prof. Moriarty. He was thwarted by Holmes in pursuit of French gold in The Red-Headed League.
Sir George Burnwell
The malicious driving force behind the events of The Beryl Coronet.
