As she was never born and is only made of computer code, technically she doesn't have one. Of course Toby Gard could answer this as it was he who conceived Lara. Thinking about it I would estimate the date of her conception on Gards drawing pad as roughly mid 1995. Which makes her 11 years old :) She's got a hell of a rack on her for an 11 year old.

Straw Dog: Aren't you a smartass! Have a gold star, but not a big one. Unfortunately, you are wrong.

Lara actually has an age (albeit perpetually stuck at 28), a birthday and even a bloodtype, and I do believe all of them were mentioned at least once in a game manual for TR1. Absent that, I faintly remember an "official" online character profile mentioning the birthday somewhere.

I can't find my copy of TR1 manual though, and too lazy to search for the online profile. Someone else do the legwork.

Well in case Olgerth Heidern missed it the bio was redone with Legend, so something from Tomb Raider 1 might be a bit out dated now. No birthdate was mentioned in the new bio http://www.tombraidercommunity.com/lara_bio.php

Is no longer the official bio katie07, or did you not notice glaring differences like the name of the current Lara's parents being Richard and Amelia Croft

Ouch.

Well, I didn't happen to read the whole thing, so it is my fault. I just looked at the birthday and copied everything. I'll delete, because it's pretty long.

About the Official Biography, my opinion is that they aren't given her a birthdate yet. I mean, TR1 came out, like, 1996, and if she was around 28 then, she'd be 38 now! Perhaps they're trying to make her ageless.

Yep, she's ageless now, but her birthday is still FEB 14 in the TRL promotional info on the official website. :)

The first Lara Croft Style Guide lists her birthday as: February 14th, 1968.

That's true, but that was to make her 28 back then. People can't assume the time of a game series flow as our normal time. I mean, she was born 28, and even though she's such an adventurer she only goes on travel once per year... ;)
