Lara Croft, daughter of British aristocrat Lord Henshingly Croft, was born and raised to be part of British high society. But at the age of 21 on her way home from a skiing trip, her charter plane crashed deep in the heart of the Himalayas. For two weeks, Lara was forced to rely on her wits to stay alive in the hostile environment until her rescue. The incident had a profound effect on her.
She has spent the eight years traveling the globe exploring the tombs, temples and archaeological sites of ancient civilizations – funding her travels by writing her exploits and occasionally picking up certain ‘items’ of historical importance which certain people will pay a LOT of money for. One such person is a man named Powell whose after ‘The Clock of Ages’, a device which gives its user the powers of the tribe it once belonged too.
