The main character of our story, "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", is the trusty mongoose, Rikki-Tikki
Rikki-Tikki kills Nagaina before climbing above ground and falling asleep. After he wakes, he tells Darzee, and is given food by Teddy's family.
Examples for each stage are taken from
"Rikki Tikki Tavi" by Rudyard Kipling
"'no,' Said his mother; "let's take him in and dry him. Perhaps he isn't really dead."
The setting of our story is "Segowlee, India".
In the exposition, Rikki-Tikki is flooded out of his burrow, and rescued by a human family.
'"When the house is emptied of people," said Nagina to her husband, "He will have to go away, and the garden will be our own again."'
Rikki kills Nagina's eggs, and fights her into the house where Teddy's life is at stake, after luring her away with her last egg.
Rikki-Tikki finds Nag and Nagina, two cobras in the garden, though they escape. He later finds Karait, a snakling that blends into the Earth, and kills. After talking to the muskrat, Chuchundra, he discovers Nag hiding in the bathroom of the house, and succeeds in killing him.
"Yes, you will go away, and you will never come back; for you will go to the rubbish heap with Nag. Fight, widow! The big man has gone for his gun! Fight!"
Nagina tries to flee with her last egg, but Ricki-Tikki followed her into her snake hole in an attempt to kill her once and for all.
"Then the grass by the mouth of the hole stopped waving, and Darzee said, "It is all over with Rikki-Tikki! We must sing his death song! Valiant Rikki-Tikki is dead! For Nagaina will surely kill him underground!"
"It's all over," he said. "The widow will never come out again."
