- ―Tomb Raider Concept Document
Sanatkumara is a character from an earlier version of the original Tomb Raider.
In an original document, it is described that Lara Cruz, after having collected three pieces, takes an artefact called the Key to the Master Pyramid. When Lara uses the Key to activate the pyramid she actually deactivates it and releases the demon Sanatkumara. Thereafter Lara must reactivate the pyramid to win the game and save the world.
- In Hinduism, Sage Sanatkumara was one of the four Kumaras or spiritual sons of Brahma.
