Toil and Distraction

Nikolai

Tomb Raider



There are over a hundred of us now. We've started work clearing out the old palace and soon construction will begin on a city around the base of the mountain. The Japanese built a cargo hauling system here years ago that we've gotten up and running again.

Mathias claims we're building in honor of the Sun Queen, like some ancient Egyptian monument. But it's obvious what's going on here. Mathias is stalling for time. This massive project is just to keep them distracted. Even with the rituals and storms and rampant killing, it's only a matter of time before they turn against him.

And when they do, I'll be ready to take control.

Lara's Thoughts

The Solarii are organized, they have rules and a purpose. Mathias has seen to that. But like most cults, they're collectively mad.
