I guess a kind of tension started to grow between Von Croy and Lara after the event in Cambodia because she 'left' him there, even if she couldn't have saved him anyway. Von Croy started probably to get mad at her, the same way Lara was at Von Croy after TR4.

There's this, and also the same reason why she raided tombs to find the Scion, the Dagger of Xian, the Meteorite artifacts, etc.

I always assumed it was just a sort of playful rivalry on a grand scale.

I didn't read too much into it back then. She stealed the artifact because she could. It's nothing deep, but it works as a genuine motivation for me.

Hm... Today I've rewatched all the cutscenes and I can't fill the holes in this story in any way. I tried to invent something but nothing has a sense.

1) How Werner escaped from Cambodia? Maybe with teleport itself in a hub that works with the Iris?
2) What are the supposed bad purposes of the Werner's father?
3) Why the father changed his mind from museum curator to istantly businessman of an enormous incredible industry of weapons and scientific researches?

These are my questions and I can't find a connection with these things. It is something that would deserve an entire title and not a single action, because it implies a powerful artifact that can't be ignored and an enormous industry that can't be ignored too.

Use your fantasy to give a valid connection between these things please. @_@ I need it.

1) Presumably, Lara went off to find help (she wasn't cold-hearted back then). Either VonCroy escaped on his own or got out with the people Lara presumably got help from. Either way, he somehow made it back with only a broken leg (possibly shattered ankle) so most likely it was someone who found VonCroy, the question is whether that someone was sent by Lara or if they found him by themselves. (Either way, VonCroy would from that point have a grudge against Lara for the incident). The Iris as a teleport seems only usable on select terminals, and can't be used any way else that we can see aside from being either a conduit or source or transformation of power.

2-3) I've always fantasized that Werner's father was part of Eckhardt's Cabal and was ultimately the one who freed and helped Eckhardt escape the Lux Veritatus prison back in WWII. After that, Werner's father received a bunch of funding from the Cabal's new sources now that Eckhardt was running things again. This would have led to Eckhardt asking the younger VonCroy for the painting commission but VonCroy knows exactly who Eckhardt was immediately because of his father.
