Tomb Raider explores the origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor. Setting out to "make [her] mark", Lara travels on the ship Endurance commanded by Conrad Roth. It is hit by a violent storm and split in two. She and many other survivors are stranded on an isolated tropical island in the Dragon's Triangle. Lara has to find food and water to survive, fighting off the more dangerous animal inhabitants and trying to trace the other survivors. But a darker threat awaits as she is forced to harden herself against killing people in order to fight a group of malevolent mercenaries who seek to kill her and her companions.
