We began invasion of the valley not twenty-four hours ago. I expected resistance and have not been disappointed.

The people of the valley think they defeat us, but the harder they fight, the stronger my resolve grows. If they weren't protecting something, they wouldn't martyr themselves so. they wouldn't endure tortures with such resolve.

They are believers. I respect that. But they are on the wrong side of this battle. It will not be long now. A new, better world is at hand.

Lara's ThoughtsEdit

Trinity is here in force... with a lunatic in command.


Ana has let the mask fall. She and I are finally, fully reunited. It has been difficult without her these past years. When I'm weak, it's always been her voice that gave me strength. When she loses hope, I ignite that hope for her.

... that being said, I must confess that I am worried about her. Her health falters, yes, but my concern is with her resolve.

I fear that some piece of her was lost in her time with the Crofts. She must have faked her emotions for Lord Croft so powerfully they became real. And now I fear that has spilled over to Lara.

Lara's ThoughtsEdit

Konstantin wonders if Ana has become too sentimental. That's not exactly how I would characterize her behavior...


As we push deeper into the valley, I feel re-assured that this is the work I was chosen to perform.

My stigmata itch with sensation. It is a constant reminder of my higher purpose, of my singular position in this higher purpose. I was a child, innocent to the evils of the world. Then, one night, I woke in such pain, a scream on my lips.

Blood dripped from my palms. When I saw it I was terrified.

It marked me. It meant something.

I cannot shirk this mission anymore that I can shirk my own hands.

Lara's ThoughtsEdit

Oh God... Someone did this to him... Someone pushed him onto this path when he was a child...


I have sinned in God's name. Much blood has been spilled on this valley floor. As I speak now, blood continues to flow.

Forgive me. That the divine work requires sacrifices does not mean I am clean.

Forgive me. For since I've suffered the stigmata in my youth, I have sinned in your name.

Forgive those I have killed myself and those who have been killed in my name. They knew not what they were doing.

Forgive me. Forgive me for the work I do is not yet done. And there is yet much blood to be spilled.

Lara's ThoughtsEdit

Konstantin is a man driven by his faith... but it's twisted and vile. He's been warped by his obsession...

The GoalEdit

Croft is operating against us at every turn. Someone put a fire in her. Lord Croft was too bookish to possess any true resolve. He was coward. His daughter is something different.

I almost gave an order today that no man should kill Croft but me. I fear she is starting to cloud my judgement. I must remind myself: the goal is not another dead Croft. The goal is the Divine Source.

Lara's ThoughtsEdit

Trinity has been after the Source for years, and they've been using my family to find it...

The OrdealEdit

We stand now on the very cusp of a new world. The Divine Source has been located. Croft, while still alive, has been effectively neutralized.

But Ana grows weaker by the hour. Her voice, that voice I've known my whole life, is starting to falter.

I asked her if she remembers that night, the first night that God carved purpose into my hands. The night that he chose me. She said she did. And then she smiled and said that we would have nights again like that, once the ordeal is over.

For her, I stay strong.

In the old city, we will find the Divine Source. I will save my sister. And together, we will save this world from itself.

Lara's ThoughtsEdit

Konstantin cares so deeply about his sister... He would set the world on fire if it meant saving her...
