Prior to the events of the film, Karabine accompanied Themistocles Paparanic to Teteragua alongside Midas PaposScoubidouvitch, and Alexandre Timochenko. He briefly held a position in the new Teteraguan government before fleeing the country eleven days later with his comrades.

He was first seen as the head of the company Karexport, when he appeared in Istanbul for offering Haddock 400,000 Turkish pounds or 20 million French francs. He claims to be an old friend of Paparanic and offers to buy the boat for "sentimental" reasons, but the huge amounts that he offers makes Tintin suspicious and on his advice Haddock turns the offer down.

Not to be put off finding Paparanic's gold, he arranges several attempts to kill Tintin and Haddock in Istanbul. When this fails, he sends Angorapolous and Yefima undercover as sailors on board the Golden Fleece to search for clues to the location of the gold.

Later, he is alerted by Yefima that Tintin and Haddock have located the gold at the island of Tassika, and heads there at once with his henchmen via helicopter. They board the Golden Fleece and, taking the chest of Paparanic's gold, lock all of the crew (barring Tintin) in Paparanic's cabin, then set up several crates of dynamite to blow up the ship after they escape.

Karabine and his men take the chest back to their helicopter only to come under attack by the police, including Thomson and Thompson. Karabine gets aboard the helicopter which suddenly takes off. It turns out that Tintin has replaced the pilot. Karabine tries to force him to land, but Tintin disarms him. Beaten, the crook announces that no-one will get the gold, opens a hatch and lets the chest fall into the ocean and was later arrested, possibly never to know that the chest didn't contain the real gold he was after.
