A few of things:
1. As mentioned elsewhere, that's not what "sociopath" means.
2. Sherlock Holmes isn't a sociopath, that's just nonsense propagated by bad Tumblr fanfiction.
3. By definition, a person who only obeys the law because they're supposed to, rather than doing so out of dedication to the concept of order, is Neutral, not Lawful.
4. By definition, a person who cares *solely* for themselves, with absolutely no thought for anyone else, cannot be Good. You are describing a Neutral or Chaotic Neutral person. Or, perhaps, a Lawful Evil person who uses the law for their own selfish ends.
I consider the series to be bad fanfiction, frankly.
