Story


Accused of the murder of her one time mentor, Werner Von Croy, Lara becomes a fugitive on the run. Following notes left by Von Croy, Lara ends up in a race to recover artifacts before the secret alliance whose destiny it is to take over the world and revive a fearsome biblical creature known as The Nephilim.

Pieter Van Eckhardt is the main villain in Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness. He was a 15th Century evil alchemist who created a powerful weapon called the Sanglyph. To keep the Sanglyph safe, Eckhardt split it into five pieces and hid a piece behind a painting he created, depicting evil images.

Eckhardt grew ever more evil and powerful through alchemy. He eventually created an order known as The Cabal which consisted of an alliance between five powerful alchemists including Eckhardt. He eventually prepared to resurrect an extinct cross-angelic race known as the Nephilim which is the reason why he created the Sanglyph. He believed that using the Nephilim he would gain power over the world. Because of his intentions, an order called the Lux Veritatis was born to stop Eckhardt and the Cabal. The other members of the cabal eventually were all murdered by Eckhardt to retain the secrets they held.
It is now up to Lara Croft to stop Eckhart from reviving the sleeping Nephilim.

The Strahov Fortress
Stronghold of the evil organization behind The Monstrum killings, also located in Prague. Lara gains access through a blundering journalist, desperate to expose the organization. The Strahov Fortress is made up of different areas, including a bio-research facility, an underwater research facility, a mental institution (the only Tomb Raider level to be played from another character's perspective) and a secret tomb called The Vault of Trophies. Physically it is a large industrial complex and appears to be fronted by some kind of transport operation.
