Harrison Sherloque Wells was considered the multiverse's best detective.[1]

One of Sherloque's early cases involved the Mad Hatter, a notorious serial killer that killed his partner Watsune with the use of a memory machine.[2] Sherloque had been hired many times across the universe to help discern the identity of the meta-human hunter Cicada. This reputation led to his hiring by Team Flash on Earth-1 at the recommendation of Harrison Wolfgang Wells.

Sherloque Wells immediately proved his skills to the team by analyzing each of them, including Cisco Ramon's recent break-up with Gypsy and how Barry was Earth-1's Flash. Sherloque requested to be paid for his services, and, having been through the same case many times, immediately came to the conclusion that Cicada was a man named David Hersch. Due to XS changing the timeline by helping her father destroy the S.T.A.R. Labs satellite crashing to Earth[3], the identity changed from Hersch to somebody else. Though Team Flash was disappointed in Sherloque's performance, Sherloque agreed to stay with the team longer to help further with the case.[4]

While investigating Cicada, Sherloque also investigated XS on the side, using her journal which contained a secret language she developed herself. Sherloque had much difficulty cracking the language besides a single phrase, "the timeline is malleable".[5] At risk of her secrets being exposed, XS set-up a sequence of events to distract Sherloque from his investigation, causing him to meet Renee Adler, the doppelganger of Sherloque's ex-wives. Sherloque discovered Renee to be a meta-human, and moves away from the investigation into XS to protect Renee from Cicada.[1]
