Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003)
Lara Croft: Reiss is going to use the orb to find Pandora's box.
Agent Stevens: Do you meen the Greek myth? Pandora's given a box by a God, told not to open it - she does and unleashes pain into the world?
Lara Croft: That's the Sunday school version, yes. How do you think life began? Shooting star? Primordial ooze? In 2300 BC an Egyptian pharaoh found a place that he named The Cradle of Life where we, life, began. And there he found a box, the box which brought life to earth. The pharaoh opened the box but all that was left inside was the "Ramante" or anti-life: The plague which came as the companion to life.
Agent Stevens: Companion?
Lara Croft: Nature is about balance. All the world comes in pairs - Yin and Yang, right and wrong, men and women; what's pleasure without pain?
Agent Calloway: What did this plague do?
Lara Croft: It levelled the pharaoh's army. The pharaoh's son dispatched his finest soldier to take the box and transport it to the end of the world. 2000 years later Alexander the Great reached India where his army was ravaged by a plague after one of his men found a box amongst some remains.
Agent Stevens: India? That's where the pharaoh's man brought it?
Lara Croft: Mm. Alexander felt that the box was too powerful to be trusted to any man so he returned it to its home in The Cradle of Life and it has never been seen since.
Agent Calloway: And this Cradle of Life is... where?
Lara Croft: No one knows. Alexander found it using a map that was with the box, a map he then hid from the world. But the name he gave this map was "mati" and the literal translation for the word "mati" is "eye. The orb is the map, hidden in the Luna Temple by Alexander and Reiss will use it to find Pandora's box and when he does, when he opens it, he will unleash a weapon more powerful than you could ever imagine.

Agent Stevens: ...but we'll assign two of our best agents to help.
Lara Croft: I don't want them.
Agent Calloway: With all due respect, expertise in archaeology doesn't...
Lara Croft: I didn't say that I don't need help, but your agents will never get me to Chen Lo in time. I need an insider, someone who knows the Shay-Ling. Their methods, their hideouts. I need Terry Sheridan.
