Monkey Man

The capuchin monkey was a specially trained monkey of the Monkey Man.

BiographyEdit

In 1936, the capuchin[2] was assigned to follow Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood, and locate the Headpiece to the Staff of Ra be it the piece itself or some similar shape like on a diagram and return it to her master. She was taught that failure would mean she wouldn't get to eat.[3]

Jones and Ravenwood first encountered the Capuchin on the rooftop of Sallah Mohammed Faisel el-Kahir's house, where she was entertaining his children. After realizing the monkey was not the family's pet, Ravenwood adopted her, and joked with Jones that she was their baby.

CapuchinMonkey

The monkey betrays Marion Ravenwood's location.

The monkey accompanied Jones and Ravenwood on their shopping trip in the marketplace, but darted away when she realized that her master was nearby. Joining her master, she gave the heil salute to a German Agent, who reciprocated with one of his own. The monkey later helped in the Nazis' pursuit of Jones and Ravenwood, by signaling to the German agents and their Arab henchmen that Ravenwood was hiding in a basket.

The monkey returned to following Jones who, unaware of the capuchin's betrayal, went to the Marhala Bar to grieve while believing Ravenwood dead in an explosion. After a bar confrontation between Jones and René Emile Belloq, the monkey ran into Sallah's truck, where she received a hand signal from her master to stay with Jones.

BadDates

The monkey meets her end.

That night, at the house of Imam, the monkey's master poisoned a bowl of dates in order to kill the archaeologist, but the hungry monkey grabbed one for herself and died. Sallah saw her dead body, and managed to stop Jones from eating one of the poisoned fruit.[1]

Personality and traitsEdit

The Capuchin wore a distinctive red vest and mimicked her master when giving the zieg heil. She would salute in return.[1]
