Default Lara has 4 years on Tomb Raider I?

If Lara was born on 1992 and Tomb Raider takes place in 1996, it means Lara is 4 years old? Obviously is not the case because in Ireland flashback, Lara is already 16 years old, it is just that i would like to know in wich year takes place Tomb Raider I and how old is lara by then.

The lara born in 1992 is the one that is the protagonist of the latest trilogy of games (Tomb raider 2013, ROTT and SOTT). Core Lara was born 14th of February 1968, so she turned 53 today

According to the original timeline and biography, Lara's original date of birth was February 14th, 1968. This would have made Lara roughly 28 in the first game!

I assume you're a new Tomb Raider fan, let me tell you something

so there are 3 Universes in Tomb Raider

the first Universe are from the games:

Tomb Raider 1
Tomb Raider 2
Tomb Raider 3
Tomb Raider Last Revelation
Tomb Raider Chronicles
Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness
(From the years 1996-2003)
This Lara was born in 1968


The second universe:

Tomb Raider Legend
Tomb Raider Anniversary
Tomb Raider Underworld
(From the years 2006-2008)
This Lara was born in 1978

and the last/now Universe:
Tomb Raider 2013
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
(2013-Now)
THIS Lara was born in 1992

Smile Wow that's funny

Hello together,

I must admit I never laughed so much in my life! I always assumed she was born in 1992 just like TurboPizza

But thank you for the detailed clarification on this one.

Where does the new Lara Croft exactly belong to (played by Alicia Vikander)?

Have a great day!

The movies and comics actually have their own timelines,
I count the 3 Laras as the ones we see in the main title games.
Otherwise, we have about 6 Laras


The Angelina Jolie Movies

The Alicia Vikander Movies

and the Top Cow Comics
