The Original Timeline is the first timeline and the beginning of the Tomb Raider Franchise.

Lara Croft Edit


The initial Lara Croft is portrayed as a take no nonsense, explorer with a "take no prisoners" attitude. Lara was heralded as a gaming icon, and even as a sex symbol, and the pinnacle of a strong female lead.

Raised in British Aristocracy, Lara lived a life of luxury, though surviving a plane crash, and being forced to survive in the wilderness on her own, changed her. Bored by upper class society, Lara decided to live a life of adventure, much to the dismay of her parents, who disowned their prodigal daughter. Lara turned to writing to finance her adventures, writing a series of travel guides and books about her adventures.
