Name: Lara Croft                                                                     
Lara Croft is the protagonist of Eidos Interactive's Tomb Raider video game         
series. Designed by Toby Gard, she has also been featured in movies (in which       
she was portrayed by Angelina Jolie), comic books, novels, and a series of           
animated short films. In 2006, Lara was honored with a star on the Walk of Game,     
and was awarded a Guinness World Record recognizing her as the "most successful     
human video game heroine."                                                           
Lara is generally presented as an intelligent, athletic, and somewhat reckless       
Englishwoman of noble birth who travels the world in pursuit of priceless           
artifacts. Known as both an archaeologist and an adventurer, she frequently         
ventures into ancient, and often very hazardous, tombs and ruins. In addition to     
traps and puzzles, Lara encounters a variety of enemies including rivals,           
gangsters, dangerous animals (including dinosaurs), legendary creatures, and         
supernatural beings. The fantastic nature of her archaeology related adventures     
have drawn comparisons to Indiana Jones.
