Dr. Marcus Brody (Denholm Elliott) is a British academic and curator who has known Indiana Jones since Jones was a child. Marcus was friends with Indiana's father, Henry Jones, Sr., and served as a surrogate father-like figure to him, as Indiana did not get along well with his own father. In Raiders of the Lost Ark, Brody makes a deal with government agents that Indiana will recover the Ark of the Covenant and put it in a museum, but the agents put it away in a top secret hiding place (Hangar 51), much to his disappointment. He reappeared in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, putting Indiana on the search for his father and getting captured by the Nazis. In 1940, Brody retired as curator of the National Museum and accepted a position as Dean of Students at Marshall College. After he died in 1952 at the age of 74, Indiana lobbied hard for the bronze statue of Brody featured in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on the Marshall College campus. The statue of Brody lists his years of service as Dean of Students from 1939 to 1944. His portrayer Denholm Elliot's death was written into Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull with the death of his character.
