Moriarty's criminal organization, as its name implies, is a criminal organization under the leadership of Jamie Moriarty (presumably the founder) and later Morland Holmes.

Activities[]

The complex structure of the group requires a leader capable of using their resources with surgical precision. This manifests during Moriarty’s manipulation of global economic events through use of targeted assassination and mass murder. (Indeed, it was this very struggle for a leader of such skill that caused Mr. Holmes ascension and successorship to Moriarty, While Morland Holmes did not succeed in his attempt to dismantle the sinister syndicate from within, so insulated as it was against all outside threats so as be impossible to be dismantled any other way, due to his failing health and sheer enormity and scope.of such a truly globe spanning empire. Morland's reign did however, succeed in getting the group to move away from assassination operations to different criminal operations less harmful of innocents and bystanders, though still similar in scale and scope such as theft of nuclear materials among others.

Structure[]

According to Sherlock Holmes in season 4, it was not a formal cartel in the sense of a criminal holding company overseeing subsidiary organizations. Rather, was a more nebulous amalgamation of corporate offices, compromised intelligence analysts, violent thugs, and miscellanies of other personnel and assets.

According to its initial mistress and chief assassin Sebastian Moran its intelligence network is quite extensive, with "eyes and ears everywhere." this is no idle hyperbole as Moriarty was shown to be apprised of events in difficult to reach places such as prisons and police stations, monitor the activities both personal and collective of Sherlock and his associates, and offer "game changer" intelligence to the authorities after her incarceration.
