History

In 1936, Satipo and Indiana Jones entered the Temple of the Chachapoyan Warriors, in Peru. The aim of the expedition was to look for a golden idol. After a fearful encounter with tarantulas, Satipo followed Jones in swinging across a pit on Indy's bullwhip.

After Jones acquired the Chachapoyan Fertility Idol, he accidentally triggered the temple's booby traps, and ran out of the room with Satipo following him. The greedy Satipo betrayed him, stole the idol and left Jones to die.

The time when Indy threw the idol to him, he started to betray him but gets killed by a spike trap anyways.

  • Lego Indiana Jones The Original Adventures: The same thing happens, but this time he manages to escape with Indy and that he was working with Belloq all along.
  • Lego Indiana Jones 2 The Adventure Continues: The game skips over his adventure with Indy and he is unlockable in the hub world.

Trivia

  • In the first draft of Raiders of the Lost Ark, Satipo was originally going to escape from the temple with Indiana Jones and then betray him outside only to be killed up by the Hovitos. It was screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan's idea to kill off Satipo.
  • The Nostalgia Critic says "What crazy f*cked-up a**hole invented these things?" in reference to Molina playing Satipo and Octavius, and then he says "Oh yes, the crazy f*cked-up a**hole was the raider who stole the idol in Raiders of the Lost Ark but I guess he had it coming".
