''Tomb Raider'' is a series of multi-platform action-adventurevideo games, featuring the adventures of archaeologist Lara Croft in her quest for ancient artifacts and lost civilizations. It has inspired books, a comic series and two films, with a third on the way. There are many supporting characters that Lara meets during the course of the games, with a very few of them being featured in more than one game. The characters listed here are either the ones which have lines of dialogue, are important to the plot, or appear very frequently in sections of the game. Groups are also mentioned here, mostly being a class of human enemy that Lara must face and defeat. The last sections include the characters that appear in the films, most of whom do not appear in the games.
