I know I've taken some jobs of questionable legality, and I know you're not happy about it. But I couldn't pass up this contract. Been trying to get work with Trinity for years. They're discreet, the pay is obscene, and they always have opportunities.

Now here I am, and I already want out. We're at an abandoned Soviet installation in the middle of nowhere. No one's telling us low level contractors what's going on, but I think I might be helping some seriously scary people get a nuke, or something equally awful. Honestly, that's the best case scenario.

Ping me back if you get this, I've carved out a secure channel on the network. For an operation like this, you'd think they'd have better security. But I guess that's why they hired me.

Hmm... it seems Trinity keeps some of its men in the dark.

It's not nukes. Creepy looking guy with a scarred face named Konstantin gave us a big speech, talked about destiny and something called "The Source", and frankly I'm even more baffled.

The other contractors seem to be just as antsy and nervous as I am. But the company men, the guys who've been with Trinity for a long time, they're drinking it up and asking for seconds. It's fucking Jonestown out here.

We're preparing for an assault. Against who, you might ask? There's people here. Like, natives, lost in time. We're talking furs, skins, and iron arrowheads. We're about to go meet them with attack choppers and fifty cal machine guns.

I'm on the wrong goddamn side of history.

Lara's ThoughtsEdit

This won't end well for him...


I'm in trouble. Big fucking trouble.

I've been snooping around, saving a few files for my personal use, and I found a correspondence thread. About me. Worse, I think I was supposed to find it. The head of security knows I've been leaking data. Probably known all along. And they're just watching for now. Waiting to see what my endgame is.

I wish I had an endgame. I'm gonna die just because I was nosy and stupid.

I don't even think this channel is secure, now. They could have picked you up already.

I'm getting paranoid out here. But this Trinity... They are big. And they're everywhere. The more I find out, the more I realize how badly I fucked up.

So here you go: You were right.

Hope I get to tell you that in person.

Lara's ThoughtsEdit

Trinity knows he's leaking information...


I've attached everything I've learned so far. Ana and Konstantin, they're in charge out here, but someone else is pulling the strings above them... someone with a lot of cash and the means to move it around.

I've narrowed down the source, but I'm having a hard time believing someone in the Vatican is running a private army. But all roads lead to Rome. Trust me, this sounds crazy even to me. But people have to know this. If I'm going to die for this, I want to be on the right side for once.

And Konstantin... I know you're probably reading this too. You might make me disappear, but you won't win here. And if I never get the chance to say it to your face... you're out of your fucking mind.

Lara's ThoughtsEdit

Trinity will kill him for this... I hope it was worth it.
