http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif the story i heard was that some guy who was out of work at the time just started to draw and came up with the idea of a female version of james bond and voila lara, but he told his friends about his idea and they ripped him off by stealing his drawings and ideas and as a result they became lara's inventors. and sold the idea to the software company. which i think is a pretty s****y thing to do to your mates especially even if you don't share the fortune. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-1.gif

here in england people like to twist the truth, that's why i'm on a quest to seek out the truth. i hope the version story i heard isn't true at all 'cos it's a shady one. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

I can't remember the guy's name, but the original creator of Lara has made no money from the Tomb Raider franchise. But I understand he's perfectly happy about this. I remember seeing a long time ago some vt with him showing some of his original drawings of Lara. She was little like in the games. Um, thinking now, maybe the guy was that Toby Gard, who has now come back to Lara and is involved in the development of TR7 with Crystal Dynamics. ???
