Although he reports to Chief Mutt, Slylock easily outsmarts him. Thanks to his quick wit and power of deduction, it rarely takes more than a quick glance at the crime scene for him to determine the perp.
Slylock usually keeps a stoic demeanor while handling cases. He appears very quiet and calm. Due to his good nature, he often helps the townspeople with problems and puzzles outside of crime.
Slylock’s intelligence applies to more than just detective work; on occasion he has demonstrated excellent survival skills and fighting prowess.
Bob Weber Jr. occasionally comments in-character as Sly on the official Facebook page, where he isn’t above making snarky putdowns or whining about bad coffee. He apparently likes calamari and Count Weirdly’s sneakers.
