The Ratty Nepalese was one of Arnold Ernst Toht's henchmen during his attempt to retrieve the Headpiece to the Staff of Ra in Nepal in 1936.

BiographyEdit

A Nepalese man accompanied Arnold Ernst Toht to acquire the medallion from Marion Ravenwood at her bar in 1936. As they were about to torture her, Indiana Jones arrived with his whip and pistol and tried to save her. The Nepalese grunt kept Indy pinned down with fire from his submachine gun, while taking cover behind an overturned table, not knowing that the medallion his boss sought was on it.

The henchman met his end when Indy shot a burning log out of the fireplace which ignited liquor spilled onto the man. As he flailed in pain, Indy shot him in the face, killing him.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Ratty Nepalese was played in Raiders of the Lost Ark by white stuntman Malcolm Weaver who wore makeup and prosthetics for the part. Weaver later performed stunts in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Despite being the first to die in the film, he is the last to die in Campbell Black's Raiders novelization. When Indy and the Giant Sherpa are fighting, the Nepalese tries to kill Indy, but Marion shoots him (the Nepalese) thus rescuing Indy. In the Marvel Comics' comiuc book adaptation, he dies at the very beginning of the fight, Indy shoots him twice in the chest.

The Ratty Nepalese is absent from LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures, but the Sherpa Gunner character seems to be based on him and Otto.
