After the crash Lara seeks out the pilot of the plane. Unfortunately so have the ‘natives’. After making her way through a cliffside crumbling Yamati village she arrives in time to see the pilot killed. She continues to find her way forward and finds Roth. Along the way Lara finds a tomb “The Hall of Ascension”.
Attempting to reach the co-pilot is met with a similar end. She encounters the leaders of these savage men and while partially unconscious gets a glimpse of a “Guardian”, possibly some mythical Japanese warrior.
Awakening in a cavern of gore, she stumbles out, discovering the final resting place of Himiko and finally understanding that Sam is to be used in some sort of power transference ceremony.
