To bridge the gap between the events of Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation and the first PS2 game in the series, The Angel of Darkness, fans and developers have worked together on an animated short.

Fans of the series will recall that the conclusion of Lara’s fourth adventure, The Last Revelation, was somewhat dramatic, with the legendary explorer seemingly dead and buried beneath the ruins of an Egyptian temple. Tomb Raider Chronicles, the sequel, was told in flashbacks as her loved ones reminisced about her earlier missions. Not until The Angel of Darkness, released in 2003, did we meet Lara again, this time in Paris (though we were never told how she got there).
The events that occurred between the two games are now officially explained in the canonical animated short The Myth of El Hawa. Written by The Angel of Darkness author Murti Schofield and directed by longtime Tomb Raider fan Ash Kaprielov. The story is told through a collection of journal entries illustrated with beautiful artwork and spoken by Jonell Elliott, who provided the voice of Lara in the aforementioned video games.
According to the narrative, Lara did, in fact, escape the debris. She collapses from exhaustion and injury, but a shaman named Putai finds her and nurtures her back to health before adopting her into the Bantiwa tribe, or “desert family,” as Lara calls them. This clip from The Angel of Darkness that was eliminated shows that Putin was supposed to be in the game but couldn’t be included because of time constraints.
Core Design may have saved this story for a later installment, as The Angel of Darkness was intended to be the first in a trilogy. This was not to be, however, as Crystal Dynamics assumed control of Tomb Raider’s development following “The Angel of Darkness,” and the rest is, as they say, history.
