Due to the publicity of the events of Yamatai Island (and the death of celebrity James Whitman) it is not hard for someone to 'know of' the name of Lara Croft. She's been labeled by the media as a modern day 'Indiana Jones' and though it has died down as of late many have sought her out for interviews and attempted deals to tell her story in other formats such as television and movies.
After Yamatai, Lara was approached by SHIELD to join their WAND division as an Asset Collection Agent and knowing the resources SHIELD has to offer that could help her accomplish her life's goals, Lara agreed. She's since moved to New York and has settled in as one of the higher experienced members of WAND.
Primarily, Lara explores the world to find artifacts and retrieve them before they can fall into the wrong hands.
* 1998: Valentines Day - Lara was born\, as the only child of Lord Richard and Amelia Croft.
* 2004: Lara's mother dies in a tragic airplane crash. Lara's father subsequently becomes more distant from his daughter as he is stricken with grief over the loss of his wife and best friend.
* 2010: Lara's father dies in an apparent suicide in his office in Croft Manor. The previous six years he'd spent obsessed with the occult and any and all legends that revolved around resurrecting the deceased. He'd taken Lara on many adventures abroad in search of life saving rituals or artifacts.
* 2010: Lara is taken in by her father's best friend, Conrad Roth after she failed to behave for the family's butler. She locked the butler in the kitchen freezer and this was the last straw. She was there-by sent to live with Conrad Roth who was an adventurer and survivalist who would pass on his training and skills to Lara while also continuing her education in a variety of schools around the world.
* 2016: Lara is enrolled at University College London and refusing to attend her father's preferred school of Oxford. Its here that she meets her best friend Samantha Nishimura.
* 2019: Lara graduates UCL with a degree in Archaeology and her first adventure has her booked as a crew member aboard the SS Endurance. The Endurance sets sail the flagship in searching for a lost Japanese island known as Yamatai...
* 2919: Yamatai: The Endurance is crashed off the coast of Yamatai and the crew is shipwrecked on the island. the island is inhabited by cultists known as the Solarii who are sacrificing young women to their Queen Goddess Himiko's spirit in hopes of resurrecting her by finding a member of Himiko's bloodline. For years these cultists have been luring vessels to the island in hopes of finding the true heir to Himiko's legacy and that heir is finally discovered in Samantha Nishimura's bloodline. Samantha is captured and taken to the Queen's Spire to be placed in the ritual that will bring Himiko back to life within Samantha's body. Lara Croft, dismantles the Solarii and puts a stop to this ritual. Though many of the Endurance's survivors are lost on the island after the wreck of their ship, Lara's efforts single handedly save many other's lives and she becomes known as the Savior of the Yamatai disaster.
* 2020: After the events of Yamatai Island, Lara deals with many legal issues in Tokyo and while there she's approached by Nick Fury of SHIELD. Nick Fury recruits her to be a member of the WAND division, specifically as a 'artifacts acquisitions agent'. After the legalities are handled in Japan, Lara reports to United States and the Triskelion where she begins her journey as a new member of SHIELD, a professional Archaeologist who's goal is to recover dangerous artifacts before they fall in to the wrong hands.
Lara knows that her strength of will is her key to success and becomes of this when she becoems locked on a goal, she's entirely Committed to seeing it through.
Lara has learned more about herself since Yamatai than she ever expected to know. She's a force to be reckoned with and she now knows that she can survive anything if she just keeps moving, keeps standing, keeps her legs working and keeps pushing onward.
Lara, at her heart, wants to do good for the world. This is what really is the base line foundation of all that she strives to do. Its why she took the job with SHIELD. She wants the world to be /better/ and she thinks that her education, her skills, and her insight into what truths lie behind legend can lead her to doing true good for the world. She wants to be a force for good in the world.
Lara's life has lead her to believe that her own family is key to many secrets in this world. That through her father's studies, she can uncover severely important artifacts that can impact the safety and security of the planet. Because of this, Lara can sometimes lose herself inside of her own self importance. Though she's not proud of this, she's aware that it is an issue. She can easily be lost in her own family's name, her own goals and achievements. She's not /proud/ of it, but even she cannot deny it in her heart.
This ia a benefit and a detriment. Lara focuses on a singular objective and it comes her sole purpose. It becomes her everything. She begins to see it as the only thing worth focusing on and there-by can eaisly forget other things, other people, if she's not pulled back in to reality by those around her.
Lara Croft grew up with the world of wealth. One of her favourite hobbies was archery and as such she is an expert marksman with any kind of bow. Having taken such a shine to the activity, Lara even learned the art of creating her own bows and her own arrows. She's quite adept at crafting a bow with makeshift supplies. A deadly archer, she can hit the tiniest of targets from great distances. Though she thought she'd forgotten most of it as a childish hobby, her first adventure on the island of Yamatai reintroduced the young Miss Croft to the art of Archery and she's grown a new-found love for it once again.
Lara croft is a fairly skilled commercial-grade pilot. She's clocked in a little over a hundred hours in a number of different types of helicopters. Though she's not as good as she'd like to be, she's confident in her ability to control the vehicle in fairly dangerous weather conditions, should the need arise, though if there were a more skilled pilot available she would gladly yield to their knowledge.
Lara has aspirations to get a pilot's license in commercial airplanes as well, if she manages to find the free time to build upon the limited time she's had in the cockpit of them so far.
Lara Croft will do anything to survive. She doesn't care if her opponent is 60 cm tall, or 600 cm tall, she'll find a way to defeat them and she'll do it by any means necessary. She's become a very proficient hand-to-hand combatant and continues to take additional lessons at any gum or dojo she can with whatever spare time she's capable of. At this stage in Lara's life, she's killed people in many brutal ways these images haunt her, but also have 'steeled' her resolve. She knows she can kill, if she has to.
Lara Croft is an exceptional driver. She's driven in many of the harshest of conditions, from the badlands of Syria to the wilds of Africa Lara's driven through it all in a large variety of vehicles; trucks, cars, motorcycles and many different types of boats. If it has an engine, Lara can maneuver it.
Lara is the Countess of Abingdon, so it may not come as a great surprise that she's no stranger to a horse. She grew up with a stable on her father's property and her favourite horse was a Spanish Mustang named "Buttercup". From hopping fences to galloping through forested pathways, Lara is an experienced rider.
Lara's been traveling the world with Conrad Roth since the death of her father. Conrad is a lifelong experienced survivalist and a mountain climber. He took Lara under his wing like an adopted daughter and has taught her everything he knows about scaling the tallest peak and finding a way to the top of the mountain. When any other person would see no way to climb further, Lara can find a way, due to Roth's mastery-level training.
Conrad Roth taught Lara many survival skills, one of which was how to properly maintain a gun; specifically handguns and rifles. She's a very proficient shot with almost any variety of these types of weapons, though handguns are her preferred favourite. Her experiences on Yamatai Island have led her to being quite adept at weapon restoration and modification as well. She can get even the oldest, and gnarliest of weapons functioning again.
This was never something that Lara truly focused on that greatly, prior to her first adventure on Yamatai Island. She had taken a couple semesters of a Parkour class in school, enjoyed it a great deal but never considered it to be anything more than a fun side-activity. However, on Yamatai, Lara put the skills to use in a way that saved not only her life, but the lives of many of her friends.
Lara has been studying other languages since she was even able to speak English. Being that she was home schooled by the best teachers that money could buy, she had an upper-hand in learning languages that would specifically benefit her in her life's future goals. She has the same love for culture that her father had, and because of this he was always there to help encourage her to speak, read, and translate. Lara thusly has progressed to learning th esame suite of languages that her father Richard knew.
4. Ancient Greek
6. Old Norse
13. Middle English
14. Vedic Sanskrit
Lara's training with Conrad Roth taught her the ability to survive in any of the world's climates. She could be left naked and afraid in the jungles of the Amazon and still manage to scrape by, overcome the odds and live. Her first adventures on the island of Yamatai further reinforced this and gave her valuable confidence in her Survivalist abilities / skills. She can take the worst survival situation, and problem-solve it to resolution.
Lara is a graduate of University College London (U.C.L.)]) and holds a degree in Archaeology. This is something she's quite proud of, though she wishes to continue her education throughout the rest of her life. She has no plans to ever cease learning new things.
Lara's distant and absent parents lead to her best friends, growing up, being the books within her father's home. Due to her father being in the field of Archaeology and world history, this has led the young girl to be extremely well read in the field. She knows her ancient myths like none other. But beyond that, she knows the world of Earth well-over like few others. From basic geography to the minute details of the cultures that reside within the deepest reaches.
Lara's family home in Surrey. This massive estate sits on a large plot of land and is filled with valuable artifacts from her mother and father's success in life. It is the sitting home of the Duke and Dutchess of Surrey and her extended family has tried to usurp it from Lara's ownership on more than one occasion.
Lara's fondest memories of her father are of the times that he would take her on his trips around the world to meet with important dignitaries from other countries and societies. As such, Lara has gained the ability to understand the diversity of her world and embrace it. She cherishes the colour of other cultures and will never shy away from honouring others beliefs (so long as they're not morally egregious)).
Lady Lara Croft is the Duchess of Surrey. Surrey is a county in the south east of England and Croft Manor is the home in which the sitting Duke and Duchess of the county have resided. The means that Lara Croft is British Royalty and occasionally has to fulfill public duties as a member of the royal family. Public appearances and behind the scenes work are often asked of Lara, though she's notoriously troublesome in getting to perform said duties.
Both of Lara's parents were wealthy, her father especially so. Being the Earl of Abingdon, Lord Richard's coffers ran deep. His manor in England is where Lara grew up. However, Lara wishes not to use the wealth of her parents to fuel her own life. She thinks fondly of her home, but wishes to forge her own path in life however, that wealth is there should she ever need it.
Due to her parents being distant and absent (and then both dying), Lara grew up mostly alone aside from house staff that were employed by her parents. She spent most of her time by herself, or with her horse. This has lead Lara to being severely independent and sometimes socially awkward. She loved her parents dearly and their tragic passings has affected her deeply.
Lara has been lonely her entire life. She loved her parents dearly, but their busy lives meant they never were around. She never had a friend her own age until she went to University and met Samantha Nishimura. Though Sam has helped reduce Lara's loneliness, it still rests deeply embedded in her heart. She feels detached from modern human society, as though she doesn't ever belong when surrounded by other people.
Lara never truly liked to work with others even before her first adventure on Yamatai. But after that, she fears the safety of those around here and pleads with others not to put themselves at risk for her foolhardy endeavours. Lara is a caring person, and she believes this is why she has to be a loner.
Yamatai Island; though it was an experience that lead Lara to find an inner strength she never knew she had, it was also the place that awoke a 'beast' inside of her. It was the place where she had to take lives, in order to preserve her own, as well as many of the lives of the people she cared about who were with her. Lara has dreams of the many men she killed on Yamatai. She can see their faces in her sleep, in the shadows around her. She can hear their voices, the gunfire, their screams as well as her own. Lara is severely traumatized by all of this and if she were less of a strong person, it might eat her alive. She has trouble sleeping now, choosing to focus solely on her work to find answers to her many questions.
