Honestly, it wouldn't take much to change her original backstory in a way that could incorporate Lara being poor. She is disowned by her parents, after all. You could just leave out her benevolent aunt gifting her a mansion and you'd basically have poor Lara Croft. (Not that Crystal would ever even just entertain the idea of going back to Lara's original backstory.)

All that being said, I personally disagree with this whole notion that Lara needs to be relatable or needs to have a good reason for doing what she does other than her wanting to do it for fun. Her being a selfish, unlikeable adrenaline junkie just doing her thing, everyone else's opinion be damned, is part of what's so great about her IMO.
