Claim to Fame

Lara Croft's claim to fame comes in two different places. One, she is the daughter of Lord Richard Croft and Amelia DeMornay who are both members of pretigious families in their homeland.

Second:
The events on the Island of Yamatai
These events receieved world-wide attention during the aftermath of the recovery of those who survived the sinking of the SS Endurance. James Whitman was the host of a popular adventure television program and his death came as a shock to many, answers were thusly demanded. Though many tall-tails came from those who survived, one thing that everyone declared was that without Lara Croft's heroics, no one would've made it off of the island with their lives.

Her story has been talked about a great deal since, and there are rumors of book-deals or television documentaries in the works, but… no public confirmation of any of this has come out as of yet.

Reputation

Lara is known for being tenacious when she takes on a task, not afraid of a challenge, and bound to her word.

Biography

Early Life - A FAILED FAMILY
Lara was born, as the only child of Lord Richard and Amelia Croft. After her mother died in a tragic plane crash, Lara's father spent much time away or secluded in his private office within their home.

Lara was alone as a child, and found solace in books, which fueled a lust for adventure. Though, her father would occasionally take her along on his expeditions, he was often too busy to pay attention to his daughter, due to the grief that struck him after the death of his beloved Amelia. Lara became an orphan after her father's apparent suicide and its further altered her personality toward being an isolated person, afraid of letting anyone in.

She was left in the charged of her father's friend, Conrad Roth, who she had a surrogate father-daughter relationship. Though Roth's world traveling ways kept him away for extended periods of time, leaving Lara to be alone for much of her early life.

College Years - UNIVERSITY COLLEGE LONDON
Once of age, Lara decided that she wanted to earn her own way, uninterested in the legacy of her deceased parents and wishing to get away from her mother's extended family. She would apply to the University College London (UCL) in hopes of achieving this goal of making herself independent of anyone else.. This decision required her to pay her tuition and rent by working multiple jobs. Although this was a tougher choice, it helped Lara become more grounded, down to earth and level-headed than she might otherwise have been.

Shortly after starting University at UCL, Lara met Samantha Nishimura. Lara was initially taken aback by Sam's outgoing personality, though she soon became her best friend (the first she'd ever had). It was because of Sam's free spirit and wild streak that Lara was able to experience much more of London than just the universities and museums that she loved so much, and as a result started coming out of her shell and making more friends.

Post-College: — YAMATAI ISALAND
Lara's mentor, Conrad Roth, was contracted to assist television archaeologist James Whitman on an expedition to find the mythical Japanese island of Yamatai. Their ship, the 'SS Endurance' was crashed during the search and most of the crew was lost in the ravaging storm.

The ship had crashed into the harbor of Yamatai and Lara (along with many other crew members) were left to survive on an island inhabited by crazed cultist rituatlists. It was on this island that Lara had to learn to kill to survive.

Having witnessed a great many awful, and wonderous things on Yamatai, Lara has become a reforged woman. She sees now that her father's archaeological obsessions held more merit than many had previously given him credit for, she included. As a result its become a new-found fire within her, to try to solve the work of her father and search the world high-and-low to explain what she saw on the island of Yamatai.

Lara is currently in the United States, staying in an apartment in Manhattan and she is attending court-ordered therapy sessions following the legalities that surrounded the aftermath of the Yamatai Incident.

The 'incident' made headlines across the world due to the death of the popular tv show adventurer James Whitman and though Lara was not held accountable for any of that, she was determined to be suffering from a great deal of PTSD and part of the settlement was for her to receive counseling for as long as two-years (pending the recommendation of her counselor).

Publicly Lara was heralded as a Hero by her fellow survivors who were interviewed by the Press after their recovery. They all spoke of how it was she who kept them from perishing during the supposed horrors of the strange lost island and that without her, no one from the SS Endurance would have ever been heard from again.

Today: — NEW YORK CITY
Not wanting to return to her family home in London, Lara has taken up residence in America with her friends Samantha and Jonah. She's attending the counseling sessions and has become… obsessed with her father's legacy. She believes he was on the verge of a major discovery and she wants to continue his studies/research and pick up where he left off.

She has also become enthralled with a need for death-defying adrenaline. Since Yamatai, it has become hard for her to stay focused without a source of heart pounding action to calm her spirit and re-center her focus.

S.H.E.I.L.D. - Agent Croft
Lara has been hired by the agency known as SHIELD, to specifically work under Melinda May in the WAND division (Wizardry, Alchemy and Necromancy Department). Lara's primary task is advising on topics related to the occult and world history, as well as the acquisition of rare items that may otherwise be difficult to retrieve.

Character Details
