Karait is Dead
Rikki-Tikki-Tavi is the main character of the story who is washed away from his home to a group of people. He has to defend the humans from 2 cobras.He is currently fighting Karait, a dusty brown snakling whom he kills.
Teddy is the kid who finds Rikki-Tikki-Tavi when he was washed away. He currently found him and thinks he is dead.
Teddy's mother is, well Teddy's mother and barely ever talks in the book. She is currently white with fear from Rikki-Tikki-Tavi killing Karait.
Teddy's father is the person who knows Rikki-Tikki-Tavi is not dead when Teddy finds him. He is essential to the story because he helps Rikki-Tikki kill Nag which is happening above.
Nag is one out of the two main antagonists of the story because mongooses and snakes are mortal enemies. He is currently about to eat the egg of Darzee and his wife, whom are tailorbirds.
Nagina is the other main antagonist of the story she is the wife of Nag and assists in trying to kill Rikki-Tikki-Tavi. Rikki-Tikki kills all of Nagina's children except for 1 who he uses to taunt Nagina to save Teddy. He is doing this right now in the scene above.
