Following a small passage, Lara was now in a room that looked like a basement of some sorts. She scanned the room and noticed a small pathway up to her left. Making her way towards it she noticed a small amount of dust falling from above, she stopped to have a look and distinctly heard the sound of footsteps. With every step the dust would fall. Their sound started to get further away until she could no longer hear them. Lara ran up the pathway which led to some stairs. When she got to the top she was sure Pierre was going to be there, but he was no-where to be seen. Lara decided to continue on and hope that she could still beat Pierre. Although she hadn't seen Pierre, she was sure that those were his footsteps before. Finding out just how close he really was made Lara more persistent and eager to move on, and beat him to the Scion. Following another set of pathways Lara found herself in a vast room. She looked around and a distinct statue caught her eye. She walked towards it and read his name aloud.

'Midas'
The story of Midas and his 'golden touch' started when Dionysus' elderly companion and foster father Seilenos, got drunk and disappeared. Reappearing in Midas, the King of Phrygia's prized rose garden. Midas took him in and treated him well, he entertained Seilenos for ten days and Seilenos told them great stories. On the eleventh day Midas brought back Seilenos to Dionysus. Who decided to grant him a wish for his hospitality. Midas wished for everything he touched, to turn to gold. He rejoiced when Dionysus granted him this power, and called for a feast. However everything he tried to eat or drink turned to a glittering gold, leading Midas to starve. Later that evening when Midas hugged his daughter she also turned into a golden statue. Horrified Midas went to Dionysus pleading, for him to take away this horrible curse. Dionysus told him to go and bathe in the Pactolus river and he did immediately. Midas found after bathing that he was cured of his forsaken disease, and now hated all wealth and splendor. Midas moved to the country and became a worshipper of Pan, the God of Fields and Satyr. Lara had always enjoyed stories like these, of great myth and legend. She wondered what Midas was doing down here, but she left those thoughts when she dove in the small square pool by the statue. She had the Scion to find, and her mind was set on this important goal.
