American developer Crystal Dynamics took over the series after the 2003 sequel Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness was received poorly.
The new developer rebooted the character along with the video game series.
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.
Lara attended the Scottish boarding school Gordonstoun and a Swiss finishing school.
At the age of twenty-one, she survived a plane crash, which left her stranded in the Himalayas for two weeks; the experience spurred her to shun her former life and seek other adventures around the world.Inspired by Neneh Cherry and comic book character Tank Girl, Gard designed Lara Croft to counter stereotypical female characters.The company modified the character for subsequent titles, which included graphical improvements and gameplay additions.Lara Croft is depicted as an athletic and fast woman with brown eyes and reddish-brown hair, frequently kept in a plait or ponytail.The character's classic costume is a turquoise tank top, light brown shorts, calf-high boots, and tall white socks.The third era deviates from the original plot considerably.
