The Villge Dignitary features in the Temple of Doom. He provided lodging and food for Indy, Short Round and Willie. The Village Dignitary then sent Indy and the others to Pankot on elephants to find the missing stones and children. When Indy returned, he brought with him the stones and the chldren. The water and the crops returned once the Sankara Stones were places in the idol and the village flourished.
