Iris Watson was the daughter of London's chief prosecutor [[Klimt van Zieks]] and a lady of the rich Baskervilles family. When her mother was pregnant with her, her father had already died via [[Genshin Asōgi|duel]]. [[Yūjin Mikotoba]] was given an address to go to and he found the woman. He helped deliver the baby girl but the woman died shortly after. Yūjin realized that the woman was of the Baskervilles after seeing a chest with a certain "B" crest. He had to return to [[Japan]], so he left the baby in the care of his English detective partner, [[Sherlock Holmes]]. Yūjin named the girl Iris after his own deceased wife, Ayame.

Iris grew up thinking Holmes was her father. She writes stories about his adventures after being inspired by the adventures his partner wrote about in the trunk in Holmes room where she keeps her own stories while they get published in the Strand Magazine. One day she found Klimt van Zieks’ autopsy done by [[John Watson]] and recognized the handwriting as being the same as the handwritten case records she keeps in her trunk. This led her to believe that Watson was her birth father. Another day, she wrote a case entitled the Hound of the Baskervilles, based on the incident that happened around her birth parents' death. After Holmes read it he was horrified, he was afraid it might contain the detail that Klimt van Zieks was actually a serial killer and didn't think Iris could handle that. So he refused the work to be published and gave to [[Hatch Windibank]] to lock in his vault. Iris also became friends with a pickpocket named [[Gina Lestrade]]

Iris Wilson
Because see. I am a Watsie too!

Iris Wilson was a child prodigy that lived with the renowned detective Herlock Sholmes. Despite being only ten years old, she penned The Adventures of Herlock Sholmes series of novels.[4] Following Ryunosuke Naruhodo and Susato Mikotoba's arrival to the Great British Empire, Iris assisted Naruhodo in a number of cases over the course of his study abroad.

Birth[edit | edit source]

Main articles: Professor Killings

Her mother.

Iris Wilson was born as the daughter of London's chief prosecutor Klimt van Zieks and a lady of the noble Baskervilles family. When her mother was pregnant with her, her father had already died via duel. Yujin Mikotoba was given an address to go to and he found the woman. He helped deliver the baby girl but the woman died shortly after. Yujin realized that the woman was of the Baskervilles after seeing a chest with a certain "B" crest. He had to return to Japan, so he left the baby in the care of his English detective partner, Herlock Sholmes. Yujin named the girl Iris after his own deceased wife, Ayame.

Iris grew up thinking Sholmes was her father. She writes stories about his adventures after being inspired by the adventures his partner wrote about in the trunk in Sholmes' room where she keeps her own stories while they get published in the Strand Magazine. One day she found Klimt van Zieks’ autopsy done by John Wilson and recognized the handwriting as being the same as the handwritten case records she keeps in her trunk. This led her to believe that Wilson was her birth father. Another day, she wrote a case entitled the Hound of the Baskervilles, based on the incident that happened around her birth parents' death. After Sholmes read it he was horrified, he was afraid it might contain the detail that Klimt van Zieks was actually a serial killer and didn't think Iris could handle that. So he refused the work to be published and gave to Hatch Windibank to lock in his vault. Iris also became friends with a pickpocket named Gina Lestrade.

Ryunosuke Naruhodo and Susato Mikotoba are formally introduced to Iris during the investigation of Viridian Green's stabbing. Susato compliments her on her works, the girl was currently writing "The Adventure of the Speckled Band" based on a case Sholmes just solved. The little girl then performs "Little Iris Wilson's Theater of Logic and Deductions" where she perfectly deduces, unlike Herlock Sholmes, that the two are here to ask the detective for information so they can free their client, a fellow Japanese man. Then she gives them a card to give Tobias Gregson so he'll let them investigate. Once the case is solved, Iris makes everyone dinner.

Naruhodo got Natsume acquitted and solved the mystery. Green tried to killed Shamspeare because he accidentally killed her fiance by blowing into the gas pipes, also causing a curse rumor, to get a hidden treasure promised by a prisoner in Manchester. The treasure turned out be the dog collar that Balmung, her father's murder weapon, wore. It was a gift from the Baskervilles family upon Klimt's marriage. Iris plans to make this case two parts: "The Adventure of the Schoolgirl who was Stabbed in the Back" and "The Adventure of the Mustached Man Cursed by a Death Row Inmate".
