Many people will say she can't have age since she is computer character.

I love to say she does have age. By her bio, she is born in 1968., so she is 39. And she will be 40 somewhere in February, 14 I think.

Well, she is either 6'0''(182 cm), like in AOD wanted paper, which I prefer, or 5'9''(175cm), which is official. And yes, she can jump all her height of sth.

Lara is as old as old we want her to be. :) I ignore the date that is in the bio...

to know Lara's age it pays to know in what year the relevant games are set

i'll say in her 30's :D

well,I saw a thread like this looooooooooooooooong time ago.Someone on here made a story of how old Lara was.It turned out 25 or 26...I can't remember O_o

I remember it said something like this:
Lara was 9 years old when the plane Crasch hapenned.The game takes place 15 years after it 15+9=24

she is 24 if you ask CD and she is 40 if you ask Core.

In a TR book, the one with the early TRAOD model at the back, it had something like :

Birth Date : 14.02.?? - So because of that I don't think she has an age. I have always imagined her to be around 30.

I'll agree with Beanz. Who the hell cares? She's just a game character. She's ageless to me.

I don't really like the idea of her being 39, so to me she is only 24-26 =D

The following photo shows that she was 11 before 1989, which throws some of your teenager theories out the window. I, personally, know that she's 39 for a fact, however, I can't find the proof in my documents because I have so much damm TR info saved... There is fact to this, so you guys seriously need to stop on all that "it's my opinion" blah, blah crap.

EDIT: I don't have the other scans, because this one was provided to me from Rivendell... So, don't ask. ;)

I agree. But I'd say even later 20's though. 26-28

39 and if you were to go by from when the game came out she is 11 years old.

I've always thought she was around 27-28. Seeing as though she was around 18 when Natla was around and that was like 10 years ago.

She's a video game character, so she's techically only 11 years old.

i think they were wrong to give her a birthdate.

the best fantasy characters survive with no age, thus allowing us to draw our own conclusions and fill in the gaps ourselves. this helps people relate to a character on any level they wish to, and gives the franchise an opportunity to go on for decades.

James Bond, Superman, etc.

no age for me. i just think perhaps early thirties. forever.

A video game character can have an age past the age of the game itself...

That's... just a photo.

This is a scan that I recieved from Rivendell, from the official Tomb Raider Companion book. Therefore, Core Design approved everything in this "photo". It's not just some random thing I found... Which is how you're acting. :rolleyes:

No they can't. Lara didn't exist in 1968.

Opinions are opinions and one opinion is that we don't give a damn about so called ''facts''. Kay? That doesn't prove anything tbh. That pic isn't even a ''fact'' anymore.

And Core no longer has the proprietary rights; Crystal Dynamics does. They've done more than change the biography as well.

She's 85, with lots of plastic surgery.

Ugh... You guys depress me... I guess it just depends on your mindset. To me, Core Design created Lara and Crystal Dynamics stole her. I just try to stay faithful... Faithful to everything that Core Design created. :(

Faith, yes. Bashing other people's "opinions," not good.

she was born in 1968 "Core Bio" that is FACT!!! ergo she's 39

fly the flag AmericanAssassin, you can't argue with printed facts.....it's printed therefore TR canon:jmp:

It's anachronistic, though.

If they make Tomb Raider games in 2020 with Lara in them... will she keep adventuring at the age of 50?

i cant imagine her being 40 yrs old.. my gosh, then she would be the same age as my mom and i cant take it because 40 yr people dont look like her (except plastic surgeries or something...) so, to me Lara is always 25-27 yrs old ;)

I agree 25-27 years old, and BTW Lara will never age. The only reason to why she was given a birthdate by core design is because they probably never expected the series to survive so long and that age seemed suitable at the moment.

James Bond has been on the moviescreen for like 40 years and haven't aged a bit so why should Lara. She is fictional after all. :whi:

Characters dont age like they would in real life.
According to the Marvel comics, Spiderman was "born" in 1948 (He was 15 years old in 1963). Yet he's not 60 years old in the comics. I dont even think hes 30.
