Totec’s army was defeated when Xolotl used the mirror of smoke to unleash hordes of ghastly creatures. Totec survived said battle, and found a way to defeat Xolotl, imprisoning him in the mirror of smoke and watching over the mirror as an immortal stone statue. In present day, Lara Croft reads of the legend and attempts to find the mirror. After a long and dangerous hike she is successful. She stops to observe the mirror, only to find the a band of mercenaries; led by the local warlord, followed her into the temple and took the mirror from her. Unknowing, or unbelieving of the curse opun the mirror, the leader of the mercenaries handles the mirror and recklessly releases Xolotl.
