Legend has it that when you drive the dagger of Xian into your heart you acquire the power of the dragon. In ancient China, a powerful lord held this power and with his army he carved out huge areas of land for himself until he became the Emperor of all China. During his final battle, the warrior monks of Tibet fought courageously against his evil. Knowing the power of the dagger, they succeeded in removing it from the Dragon Emperor's heart, reducing him and his army to carnage. The monks returned the dagger to its resting place within the Great Wall and locked it up for all time. Three modern adventurers, including Miss Croft, have heard about this fabled dagger and hold it close to their own hearts, but for entirely different reasons.
