Elsa Schneider was an interesting character in the series. In Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, she appears to be an Austrian archaeologist interested in finding the Holy Grail.
And she often seems to be fearless when she tags along with Indiana Jones on his adventures. The two of them even share a romantic bond.
Until we find out that she had been working for the Germans.
And for most of the film, she works on the side of evil.
And she stands against Indiana when they reach the Holy Grail’s location.
Well up until they find the Holy Grail. I did think it was clever that she tricked that guy into drinking into the wrong cup.
But Indiana forgives her soon later, but she dies when she tries to take the Holy Grail after it falls near a ledge. She kinda asked for it.
