Default Lara’s cousin

This is new to me

https://twitter.com/smashlara/status...476172800?s=21

https://tombraider.fandom.com/wiki/Melissa_Croft

Does anyone know of this is reliable? Lara Croft having a cousin with the name of Melissa?


She looks like she belongs in the AOD universe

Omg. I guess you'll never know everything about Tomb Raider, I'm glad this was cancelled.

I'm pretty sure it's been known for a while, but this is the first time I have seen these images. Honestly, she looks ridiculous

Edit: Apparently, you would have been able to play as her once you had finished the game once or if playing co-op (like how Sheva is unlocked in RE5)

I seriously wouldn't have liked this character in TR, raiding tombs alongside Lara. She looks so out of place, especially for a TR1 remake.

The good sis looks like raggedy Anne

She probably would have been cooler looking using the AOD engine

Check the thread about Core's Anniversary Edition in the TRA section. She's from that unreleased game.

It should be noted her name is Melissa Carter according to her bio in the 20th anniversary book. We just assumed she was called Croft before more information was revealed.

Well this states the obvious...

She lowkey reminds me to Morgau's concept from AoD:

Her design is atrocious, but the idea is interesting.

I feel like Core just randomly designed this character, possibly intending to put her in a different game, but then they started working on TRAE and they thought about putting her in the game. She just looks so out of place and random. I liked a lot of concepts in TRAE, Melissa wasn't one of them. :/

Exactly, she looks out of place.

I'd love to see this green/yellow suit on Lara though.
