This papercraft is the Jacqueline Natla, based on the video game series Tomb Raider, the paper model was created by saschacraft. Jacqueline Natla is the main antagonist in the Tomb Raider, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary and Tomb Raider: Underworld games, and arguably Lara Croft’s nemesis. She is a wealthy businesswoman and the owner of Natla Technologies.
Natla was one of the members of the triumvirate ruling the lost continent of Atlantis. However, she was later condemned for her misuse of power and was imprisoned in a capsule by the other two rulers, Qualopec and Tihocan. After escaping from her prison in 1945 during a nuclear test in Los Alamos, New Mexico, she took on the name Jacqueline and founded her own company called Natla Technologies using her scientific expertise and cunning. In 1996 she hired adventurer Lara Croft to search for Qualopec’s piece of the Atlantean Scion in his Tomb located in Peru. Shortly after finding the artifact, Lara was attacked by another adventurer Larson under orders by Natla. Knowing Natla had betrayed her, Lara went in search for the remaining two pieces in Greece and then Egypt. After obtaining the final piece, Lara was ambushed by Natla and her men. Stealing the now assembled artifact, Natla ordered Lara to be killed and left Egypt in her boat heading to Atlantis.
It is inside the Great Pyramid of Atlantis that Natla’s grand scheme is revealed: to use the Scion’s powers to breed a new race of mutant creatures. Realizing this, Lara made her best effort to destroy the Scion. Refusing to let her work be destroyed, Natla charged for Lara sending them both falling into a deep abyss. While Lara managed to grab a ledge, Natla continued to plummet into the lava pit below and was presumed dead. However, later on as Lara made her way through the now collapsing pyramid, she encountered Natla yet again, who was now sporting a bomb launcher and red wings similar to those of the Atlantean monsters she had encountered before. After apparently killing Natla, Lara escaped the pyramid as it was destroyed in a big explosion.
Part of the Atlantean race, Natla is seemingly able to change her form at will. It would appear that the default Atlantean form is human-like, but it is unknown whether the other two members of the Triumvirate possess Natla’s shape-shifting ability.
Natla can assume a Demonic form, which usually happens after she is harmed. Her skin adopts a deep red scale-like quality, and wings unfold from her shoulders. Her skull drastically changes shape, displaying a row of horns that resemble a crown upon her head.
In Tomb Raider Anniversary Natla displays her ability to fly, Shape-shift and create fire balls, it isn’t till Tomb Raider: Underworld that Natla show’s her ability to teleport, Natla is also immortal.
