The story of Tomb Raider II concerns the mythical Dagger of Xian, a weapon which in ancient times was used by the Emperor of China, Dragon Emperor, to command his army. By plunging the Dagger into its owner's heart, the weapon has the power to turn its wearer into a dragon. The dagger was eventually retrieved by Tibetan Monks and the Emperor was defeated. The dagger was returned to its resting place inside the Great Wall of China, and now, hundreds of years later, Lara Croft races against time to claim the dagger before it falls into the hands of the Fiamma Nera.
