Games Tomb Raider Legend (mentioned)

Tomb Raider Underworld

Avalon (probably from the Welsh words abal or afal, meaning apple - or aball, an apple tree)[1] is a location first mentioned by Amanda Evert in Tomb Raider Legend.

It is in fact a legendary island featured in the Arthurian legend, told to be the place where the Excalibur was forged in Geoffrey of Monmouth's Historia Regum Britanniae ("The History of the Kings of Britain", 1136) and where King Arthur was taken to recover from his wounds after fighting Mordred. Also, Monmouth's texts tell that Morgan Le Fay lives in Avalon. [2]

Tomb Raider Legend

Lara is searching for the pieces of King Arthur's sword, Excalibur, to find out what happened to her mother years ago in Nepal.

In the last cinematic named Answers Breed Questions that starts after Lara has defeated the Amanda Entity, she tries to stop her mother from doing the same actions as she did in Nepal when Lara was nine. Lara has activaed a circular portal and communicates with Amelia, but Amanda interferes and everything happens just as in the past.

Lara becomes furious at Amanda as she has said that Amelia isn't actually dead as Lara has thought all the years. Lara demands to know where her mother is, and Amanda tells her that she is in Avalon - a place that's not a myth as it has been thought to be so far.

Tomb Raider Underworld

In Tomb Raider Underworld, Lara discovers the true name of Avalon to be Helheim which is the Norse equivalent of the underworld. She travels there with the help of Natla and Mjolnir (Thor's Hammer) and finds out that it is no island at all but the location of an ancient device, Jörmungandr, constructed to split the Earth's crust at the Atlantic trench. After destroying the device Lara escapes Helheim using the Excalibur and the stone dais located there. The dais took her to the identical dais in Nepal where her mother entered years before.
