"The deal was we were in until the end."
―Henchman with the Goatee[src]
This henchman with a goatee was in the employ of Ali Bey-Faisal, along with another man with a turban, when Bey-Faisal was working with René Belloq in 1931. He may have been involved in the theft of several of the mammalian Wohat Statues from different museums.
The night after the Lion statue was stolen, he accompanied Bey-Faisal to the Barcelona History Museum as part of a plan to trick Indiana Jones into leading them to the Invincible Ruby. At the museum, they discovered Jones and Ballantine Gruber at the display pedestal from where the Lion Wohat statue had been stolen. Gruber accused them of being the same men who had stolen the Wohat crocodile statue from the New York Museum of History. This henchman fired after Jones while the other seized Gruber. Holstering his gun, he and Bey-Faisal took Gruber and sealed him into an Egyptian mummy sarcophagus. Coming out of a window, he found Jones climbing up the fire escape. He tackled Jones, and both fell over the railing, which Jones grabbed. Clutching onto Jones for his life, the henchman yelled when Jones punched him off. He fell headfirst into his partner on the lower landing, but the landing broke free and they both fell to the ground.
Several days later, he went with Bey-Faisal and the other henchman to follow Jones to Ali Bey's Palace in Kenya. After Jones had figured out how to arrange the five statues to open the palace door, the three stepped out of the jungle and captured Jones. While his boss and Jones chatted, he stood by, and was caught unaware when Gruber pistol-whipped Bey-Faisal. Not thinking quickly enough, he was punched in the jaw by Jones, who then fled with Gruber into the ruins.
While the other henchman was the first one into the ruins, the man with the goatee lit a torch and followed, with orders to find and kill the pair. He spotted a shadow with a hat similar to Jones' fedora, but after Bey-Faisal shot it, it turned out to be an old skeleton. Eventually, he found that Jones and Gruber were in an underground chamber, and reported this to Bey-Faisal, who ordered both his men to leave. Hired to see the mission through to the end, the henchmen refused to go, but Bey-Faisal drew his pistol and forced them away, with the man with the goatee understanding perfectly that it was either go away or be shot.
It is not clear whether he and his comrade were still in the palace when it later collapsed.
