I think Lara rescued him because she said she would get help and because in the AOD opening she said "you walked away and left me!" suggesting she had helped rescue him when he was in need.

Lara was young. She would not just leave him trapped! she was softer back then.

I assumed that as well. I always imagined the line thus:

"Egypt, Werner. You left me, when I came back for you."

Did von Croy always have a walking stick? If he didn't before the trap, he certainly needed one after.

Hey, maybe his damaged leg is cursed/posessed by demons. :-)

I always thought Lara just walked away leaving Von Croy trapped, and that Von Croy escaped with the help of the Iris. Later he stashed it in his HQ in New York, that is, until Lara came back to claim what she left behind (the Iris, not Von Croy)...

He called his leprechaun with his enchanted flute and asked to be teleported out.

Von Croy's leg was injured in the first level in the game when he was tutoring young Lara at ANGKOR WAT. In that final scene, it was Lara who left him injured, his leg trapped, as the ruin collapsed around him. That is why he limps and walks with a cane.

I assumed that Von Croy came to his senses (no more possession by Set) after Lara bottled Set up again in the tomb. In the final sequence of the game, Von Croy, reaches for Lara to assist her out of the crumbling pyramid when the ruin collapsed around her. I assumed that Lara's expectation was that he would search for her once she was entombed in the pyramid, but I guess he didn't. She didn't at
ANGKOR WAT so maybe payback?
And neither did she search for Amanda, BTW, when Amanda's foot got trapped at the ruins in puru. Apparently Lara didn't mind leaving friends in a pickle behind when she was young.

From the end of Chronicles we see that Werner has been searching desperately for Lara, or at least her remains. Then he sees the backpack, and ambiguously says, "I've found her!" Or at least her trail. Of course, finding ONLY her backpack is a hopeful sign, because she wasn't found WITH it.

The tutorial level ends with great forshadowing. Perhaps we were supposed to believe he escaped using his Tomb Raider skills. Like Lara, how did she escape the collapsing tomb, it's the same mystery.
