Details

Summary:

     Not much is known about Doyle's childhood. We know that his father was mentally unstable and depended on alcohol to "hide" the effects. As he grew older, Doyle studied to be come a doctor and even served aboard the SS Mayumba as a surgeon. Eventually, Doyle stopped practicing medicine to become a writer and created the famous, Sherlock Holmes.
In 1889, Doyle married Touie Doyle and had two children. A boy named Kingsley and a girl, Mary. Touie was recently diagnosed with tuberculosis and Arthur has been left to care for their two children, along with some help from their maid.
Doyle currently works with the police force (along side of Harry Houdini and Adelaide Stratton) due to an interest in the supernatural when the convent murders took place. He has recently released a new book called The Great Boer War. Doyle frequently struggles with Touie being in a coma, which often slips into his unconsciousness and he frequently dreams about her.
