In the later games, Croft wears a crop top, camouflage pants and black or light brown shirts.
When exploring, she often carries two pistols, but has used other weaponry throughout the series. She was raised as an aristocrat and betrothed to the fictitious Earl of Farringdon.
The third era deviates from the original plot considerably.
When Lara was young she travelled with her parents on many of their archaeological expeditions which helped to shape the woman she was becoming.
During the second era, Lara's story was changed to be the daughter of archaeologist Lord Richard Croft, the Earl of Abbingdon, and someone who was quickly identified as a highly talented individual while attending the Abbingdon Girls School. While searching for shelter, Lara and her mother took refuge in an ancient Nepalese temple, where Lara witnesses her mother vanish after tampering with an ancient sword. This spurs Lara on to seek the reason for her mother's disappearance.Croft has also been licensed for third-party promotion, including television and print advertisements, music-related appearances, and as a spokesmodel.
