Aided by ex-lover Marion and long time friend Sallah, Indy races around the world — from Nepal, to Egypt, to the Greek isles — while fighting his archenemy Dr. Belloq and other nefarious Nazi characters to single-handedly prevent Hitler and the Nazis from turning the biblical artifact into a weapon of world conquest and domination. Hearing the click of a gun, exploration party leader, Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones, expertly disarms the traitor with a bullwhip.
Indy is fearless and intelligent, with overconfident impatience.

The race is on. Introduce Antagonist 3 Tyrant : Colonel Dietrich. Ruthless Nazi in charge of the Cairo dig. Indy finds Marion bound and gagged in a tent. If he sets her free, he will most likely reveal his presence to the Nazis, which will endanger the Ark mission. His impatience hurts them both.
They open the chamber. Find Ark. But wait… snakes. Lots and lots of snakes. Deitrich seals Indy and Marion to die inside the Well of Souls. Action Block 5: Escaping from the Well of the Souls. Rising Action: No time to rest, going from one action block right into the next! Marion machine guns Nazis soldiers as Indy dukes it out with a bare knuckle burly Nazi boxer.

He has been shot, beaten, dragged by a truck, yet he still obtains his goal. He has the Ark. Ark is put aboard. Marion is taken prisoner by Belloq. Indy escapes, riding the submarine topside to a Greek isle. Belloq calls the bluff. Now Marion is his prize, no longer the Ark. Spirits appear. Indy demands that Marion close her eyes as the no-freed spirits surges forth and attacks the Nazis. The energy mass returns to the Ark and reseals it. Indy and Marion survive.
