The daughter of Lord Henshingly Croft, Lara was brought up in the secure world of aristocracy surrounded by tennis, butlers and corgis. She became disinterested in her former lifestyle while attending the prestigious Gordonstoun School and discovered the joys of the mountains of Scotland.She took to the sport of extreme skiing while at finishing school in Switzerland, and spent a holiday in the Himalayas searching for more challenging terrain. On her return trip the plane crashed deep within an Asian mountain range leaving Lara the only survivor.

Weeks later she managed to make it to a mountain village. Her death-defying experiences had a profound effect upon her. No longer to stand the suffocating atmosphere of upper-class British society, she realized she was only truly alive when courting danger, and began the life of a Tomb Raider.
