Exclamation Lara's Backstory...

So, we obviously know that Lara will remain English. That is something that can never be changed. But, where is she coming from in this new reboot? What do you want her life to be like prior to this shipwreck? Will she have fortune, like previous Lara Croft? Will she have a butler? What are you hoping for for Lara's lifestyle? So far, we do not know much about her character as of right now.

I personally want Lara to remain being some sort of heiress I guess you could say. I would love for her to already be crazy rich and is just on these expeditions for the adventure etc. Also, will she be an archaeologist? Or will this journey lead her to being one? Or a Tomb Raider...

My guess she's in the navy (the Endurance ship actually exists in real life and is a research vessel of a Royal Navy) and that she's still aristocratic. I think they've based the new biography mostly on original one (from TR1).

I wonder if they're going in the direction of Lara being rebellious and her not being an aristocrat and going against the norm for a female of her age.

Since Square Enix described her as "ordinary" I'd say she doesn't have much of a fortune or extravegant like that. Maybe her family is well off, but not loaded.

Could still mean British upper class, no?

I hope she's still English, an aristocrat (but one who has no completley accepted that lifestyle since she's become an adult).

id rather they continue with the CD storyline about her parents/etc, unless they think of something better.

The story is a reflection of the original bio, just a different environment, really. I'm curious to see if there are more similarities.

I'm not going to really worry about the bio much and just enjoy this scary adventure.
