Sherlock Holmes, perhaps the world's most skilled and certainly most famous detective, was a part of an Open Conspiracy in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The group, whose membership possibly included legendary Victorian figures Holmes; Dracula; Dr. Frankenstein and his creature; H.G. Wells; Jules Verne; the original Invisible Man (Griffin); John Carter (the Edgar Rice Burroughs, Mars-visiting Carter); and Robur the Conqueror; were dedicated to making the world a better place through eugenics, re-education and a controlled economy, among other measures. Realizing their ambitions were too radical for the populace, they slowly became a shadow organization whose purpose somehow went astray. At the point Elijah Snow met Holmes, the Conspiracy was on its last leg, and Snow saw fit to stop it. Instead of destroying Holmes, however, Snow chose to become his student to learn the art of detection and some of the secrets of the 1800s and early 1900s century (Issue 13).
