Indiana Jones Charecter : Marcus Brody

Marcus Brody is a fictional character appearing in the Indiana Jones films Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989). He is played by Denholm Elliott.

In Raiders of the Lost Ark, Marcus is introduced as a colleague of Indiana Jones, having a business relationship that includes Jones obtaining antiquities for Marcus, who provides the funding. The opening sequence that shows Indy's unsuccessful attempt to acquire a golden fertility idol is one of these expeditions. Brody's role in this film is rather brief, but he appears to be a mentor/father figure to Indy. He introduces Indy to the government agents who explain the Nazi campaign to retrieve the Ark of the Covenant, and later informs him that the government wants him to beat the Nazis to it. He negotiates the agreement that the Ark, upon its delivery to the United States, will be placed in a museum—probably his own. He shares Indy's frustration when the agents confiscate the Ark, refusing to give it to the museum or even disclose its whereabouts.

Marcus's role is much larger, though played more for comic relief, in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. He enters the story after Indy obtains the Cross of Coronado, which Marcus accepts for the museum "no questions asked." It is also revealed that Marcus had known Indiana and his father, Henry Jones Sr., for many years. Rather than stay behind, he travels with Indy to Venice when they learn that Indy's father has been kidnapped. After Indy learns his father's location, and sets out to rescue him, he dispatches Marcus to contact his friend Sallah. The Nazis capture Marcus, who was holding the map to the Holy Grail that Indy gave him for safekeeping. Near Iskenderun, Jones, his father, and Sallah battle the Nazis, rescuing Brody, but failing to prevent the Nazis from reaching the Grail temple. The foursome enter the temple where they are captured by the Nazis. Their American cohort and project leader, Walter Donovan, shoots Jones Sr. to force Indy to retrieve the Grail, using only his father's diary as a guide. He is ultimately successful, and uses water from the Grail to heal his father's bulletwound. The four of them are forced to leave the Grail itself behind when they leave the temple. As they ride away, Marcus clumsily loses control of his horse until Indy catches him.
