1703. Tomb Raider Chronicles - A HERO OR ZERO GAME FOR EIDOS CHIEF
Mike McGarvey grabs a promotional poster of the new Tomb Raider computer game from the wall of his bright, modern office. This is it, he says excitedly pointing at the scantily clad figure of the Lara Croft character flying through the air over the strapline Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness. Is that the same woman as last time, I enquire? No. We have to change the model every year. The whole fame thing gets to them and, well... he says, his voice trailing off. Whatever can he mean?

1704. Tomb Raider Chronicles - KURTIS TRENT - A CHARACTER PROFILE
Lara Croft has a partner in crime who joins the British aristocrat in her latest adventure The Angel Of Darkness. His name is Kurtis Trent, and he will become Core Design's debut for a second playable character in a Tomb Raider adventure. The last remaining adept of an ancient and mystical order called the Lux Lertatis, Kurtis Trent will marry muscle and brawn with Lara's buoyant twin-pistolled approach to dispensing anything or anyone that stands in their way. Kurtis Trent will also carry his own trademark weapon - The Glaive, a razor sharp frisbee that can be thrown at enemies or maneuvered in flight by telekinetic powers. If this dual-character inclusion proves successful, Core Design will entertain the idea of releasing a spin-off videogame series starring Trent.
