Default Natla is a dumb broad.

Natla sends the one woman who can "stamp out Bigfoot" to find a PIECE of the Scion, which would undoubtedly generate interest in Lara as to where the other pieces are, and cause her to go find them.

If Natla was so powerful/smart/hot/etc. why didn't she just find the whole Scion herself? She could fly past any traps, shoot fireballs at any villain, and make light of the whole thing.

Her plan would have succeeded. Obviously, she wasn't so smart.

Initially Natla had some plans about Lara, that's it. Otherwise there wasn't TR series

Palace Midas wasn't covered in her insurance... Tough breaks.

Maybe she feared the power of Tihocan and Qualopec, and decided to send someone to do it for her, just in case?

Clearly Natla didn't read the "Evil Overlord List."

She's been gone a few years, it happens to any old person.

Hmm. While Anniversary buggered up everything else about TR1, I suppose it did solve this plot hole: Natla's "OMFG WE CAN ROOLZ TOGEVUH LULZZ!!!!!" speech explains it.

I think she only offered Lara that position because she feared Lara would kill her otherwise. Which she did.

Furthermore, the plot hole became bigger in TRA because Lara should have been the LAST person to hire to get the Scion. She was incredibly obsessed with it because it was a clue as to what happened to her mother. No wonder Lara went after Natla.
