Lara's early days were consumed with drinking, partying, and just having fun. Though things weren’t always that way. Lara, a water nymph, is one of thousands of minor water deities. In her immediate sister cluster were, Sera, Selene and Lana. Being a nymph came with many stipulations. As a nymph, her sole natural born duty entailed protecting nature but Lara always dreamed for more. While Lara was great at being a protector, she was very influenced by the nymphs managed to live beyond their natural biome, amongst the gods. Lara worked her way up to becoming an attendant of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, joy, and pleasure. Lara’s great beauty made her a magnet for attention. Unlike many of the other nymphs that became attendants to a god or goddess, Lara never completely abandoned the world she previously came from. She made a clear effort to maintain her duties as a protector of nature while trying to balance the luxurious life she was now part of.
Like so many before her, it wasn’t long before Lara’s beauty attracted the likes of Zeus into her life. Lara was very well aware of what Hera would do to Zeus’s lovers and what Zeus was capable of in the heat of rejection. She knew getting involved with Zeus would ultimately be the end of her. Zeus’ first lighthearted attempts at seduction quickly became violent. After her sister Lana was murdered, it became clear that running away was her only option for survival. With the help of her sister Selene, a nymph extremely skilled in magic, they were able to craft a plan for Lara’s getaway. Selene agreed to hide Lara and Sera from Zeus and Hera, by placing them in a magical cocoon deep within the ocean. Lara and Sera begged for their sister to join them, only Selene was assured them she would be fine essentially forced the two into their deep slumber. Lara and her sister emerged from the cocoon many years later, and awoke in the underwater continent of Atlantis*. They were praised by the Atlantean people and even worshipped by some. It was Lara’s ability to heal that left the people in awe. The ability to heal was a power that only the Atlantean gods possessed (or a very select few priests). Lara was taken into the Crescentwave family, one of the wealthiest and most prestigious families of Atlantis, and has since been known as Lara Crescentwave.
