Colonel James Moriarty was the younger brother of Professor Moriarty. He worked as a station master in the west of England.[1]

He apparently denied the terrible extent of his brother's criminal activities, as in the introduction to "The Final Problem" John Watson mentions that he has only written the story to counter "the recent letters in which Colonel James Moriarty defends the memory of his brother."[2]
