Toht is one of the Nazi allies of Belloq, who was sent to retrieve the main headpiece of the Staff of Ra, which Marion posesses.
He was also present when Belloq (q.v.) opened the Ark. At first, he laughs at the fact there is nothing but sand and dust inside, but when the Ark unleashes its power, Screaming in agony and terror, Toht ends up melting, ending his life.
The ark of the covenant proves to be too hot to handle
