Everyone's got different opinions on what that should be though. There's no easy answer.

A lot of people would be upset if they added romance into Tomb Raider. They can do new things without adding controversial things like that.

Of course, they could always make a spin off or something where romance is indeed a thing. Maybe a Lara Croft rpg or something.

But I'm not getting into this debate again.
In the Novels, in AOD...all which are mainly considered canon too, she has been shown with friends and as bad as it is...being interested in Kurtis Romanticly.

I agree with you if you go very strictly with a set amount of games, but im going with what is considered in general canon, and to that it includes novels like "The Amulet of Power" etc.
Especially there if i remember correctly, she looks back with some sense of sadness at the friends she lost over the years and all.

I'm not saying Lara can't have friends, but the majority of the time she rides solo and that's a big part of her character.

Top Cow comics: Roger (her fiancée) and Chase Carver
First TR movie/book: Alex West
Second TR movie/book: Terry Sherridan
Amulet of Power: Malcolm Oliver (not a typical love interest, more of a flirtatious friendship)

If anything, she's heterosexual whose pronoun is 'she'.
Other than that, I do too believe (especially after the movies' novelization where it was said, that she prefers to be alone, because there are less risk of getting distraught) that she should stay a loner; so no more "Jonahh am heee!!!" bs.

It's too early for Lara to have a romantic relationship. I think there's so much more she needs to do in her career! However I think they should definitely give her a rival type bf. Lara needs someone edgy and dangerous like her to match her energy. Jonah is definitely not that. I would go with a Kurtis Trent type guy. Chase and Carter Bell would be perfect if they're brought into the Unified timeline. The reboot had Kennard Montez from The Ten Thousand Immortals but they didn't really do anything with him. Someone who can challenge her with a cute rivalry would be much better than lovey dovey generic UC type relationship.

Classic Lara is asexual.

Survivor Lara is a lesbian.

Any other interpretation is wrong.

I'm obviously joking, but still this is how I always interpreted the two versions of the character.
