In 1939, Hapgood planned on buying back the pieces to help in her and Indiana Jones' search for Atlantis. Marcus Brody sent a request to reacquire the artifacts on Hapgood's behalf, however Trottier was murdered by Nazi Colonel Klaus Kerner in his office and items stolen before he could respond.
Behind the scenesEdit
In Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Trottier's full name is given as "Alain Trottier" and has a quite different role. The comic adaptation simply identifies the forename with an initial "C." on his desk and his role is minimal.
