The Ratty Nepalese was one of Arnold Ernst Toht's henchmen.
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 by Malcolm Weaver.
Despite being the first to die in the film, he is the last to die in Campbell Black's novel because 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 he dies at the very beginning of the fight, Indy shoots him twice in the chest
