Quote "We both wanted the Grail. I would have done anything to get it. You would have done the same."

Dr. Elsa Schneider (Alison Doody) was an Austrian archaeologist and secret Nazi agent who is assigned the task to retrieve the Holy Grail for the Nazi Germany. Just like Walter Donovan, keeps her involvement with the Nazis a secret. She was a professional swimmer who won a silver medal for 50-meter freestyle swimming at the 1932 Summer Olympics. She is revealed to have persuaded Indiana Jones and his father Henry Jones, Sr.. Later in the film, she intentionally picks a false grail for Donovan, which was a golden grail. Upon drinking the water from the grail, Donovan starts to age rapidly and decomposes as Donovan was about to attack Schneider for tricking him. Afterwards, she steps on the temple's seal with the correct Holy Grail chosen by Indy, causing the temple to collapse. She eventually loses her balance and begins to fall into the resulting chasm. With Indiana grabbing her hand, she attempts to reach for the grail and ignored his warning to save herself. As her hand slips from her glove, Indy fails to catch her and Schneider falls to her death, thinking she has found a prize.
