Amanda Evert
Tomb Raider Legend
 
Amanda Evert was one of Lara Croft's best friends at university. While she was a promising cultural anthropologist, she had a love of metaphysics and a fascination with mysticism that, in Lara's opinion, interfered with her ability to be an effective scientist. Amanda dreamed of rediscovering mystical knowledge from the past, knowledge that the scientific age not only lost sight of but actively drove out of the world. She hoped to then teach these forgotten truths to others so they could gain spiritual enlightenment. But her career, wherever it was headed, was cut short by a terrible, unexplained event in Peru, where her body remains with a dozen others in a collapsed tomb.

James Rutland
Tomb Raider Legend
 
The Rutland name has been attached to politicians and CEOs for decades -- an American aristocracy --so James William Rutland Jr. grew up in a bubble of enormous wealth and privilege. He went to West Point and managed to graduate on his own merits, barely, And it gave him a sense of self-discipline and strength that he finds useful now that he's free of the military. Except for his time at West Point, he has never known scarcity or refusal. He is an energetic man who plays hard and has never been lazy in that regard, Though he works hard only in pursuit of his desires.

Shogo Takamoto
Tomb Raider Legend
 
Shogo Takamoto was a rising star in the Japanese mob for years and now is a Yakuza Kumicho (boss). He has a love of ancient weapons, and he became a fixture in the upscale black market, frustrating collectors and adventures alike with his mixing of forgeries with authentic rare items, using the strength of the Yakuza to protect himself from cheated buyers. A confrontation with Lara Croft over some forged items, however, led to a loss of face so extreme that he was forced to withdraw from the antiquities underground. Why he did not kill her remains a mystery within the Yakuza, because the idea of him being unable to kill her is beyond belief.

Toru Nishimura
Tomb Raider Legend
 
Toru Nishimura is a wealthy media magnate who owns a half-dozen television stations and newspapers throughout Southern Japan. His rise to this position was rapid, and he still enjoys acting like the journalist he once was, so his days aren't completely filled with corporate concerns. One investigation led to a corrupt cabinet minister, a priceless silver statuette, and a young archeologist who saved his life when the artifact turned out to be much more than it appeared. Lara Croft and he became friends after the incident, and they help each Other whenever needed.

Alister Fletcher

He confines his researches to libraries and museums, however, concentrating on understanding and explaining what has already been found, as opposed to Lara search for new artifacts. He's a 15th-year doctoral student at Oxford and hasn't received his doctorate because his belief that everything is connected to everything else makes it impossible for him to draw the boundaries required to get finish his dissertation.

Winston Smith
Tomb Raider Legend
 
Winston's family has been with the Crofts for generations, and he has been the family butler since he was honorably discharged from the military in his late-twenties; just as his father before him. He moved into Croft Manor to stay as the only live-in staff when his wife died, before Lara was born. He tends to all Lara's household needs, going far beyond the duties of a traditional butler given Lara's unusual lifestyle and pursuits, but he has never disappointed her. His loyalty to Lara, her parents, and Croft Manor is beyond question.
