Joslin Reyes, also known as Reyes or Jos, is one of the characters in Tomb Raider (2013) and in the comic Tomb Raider: The Beginning.


Time as Police Officer

Joslin was a police officer at the NYPD, and her working pair "was one of the best on the force" and he taught Joslin everything he knew about being a good cop.[2] After working for a few years, Joslin and her partner got into a drug den shootout and Joslin's partner got killed. Joslin promised to her dead partner's family that she'll make it right, but she was enraged how the drug dealers got away with killing her partner. She then quit her job, and the last thing she did on the police forces was to keep her promise: she avenged her partner's death personally.[3]

Becoming a Mechanic

After the incident at the NYPD, Joslin moved in with her sister Una. She then went to work to her brother's garage. Joslin found out that working calmed her, and that she "had a knack with machines" as machines are less complicated than people.[4]

Meeting Conrad Roth

Joslin met Conrad Roth at a bar she used to go for a drink after work. After a tough day and missing her time at the NYPD, a man was "making a fuss" at the bar as the bartender stopped serving him drinks, because the man had had enough. Joslin "wasn't in the mood for other people's bullshit", so she "sorted" the fuss the man was making by punching him in the face. The man was Conrad Roth.[5]

As Conrad Roth came to after being punched, he just laughed and admitted that he deserved it - much of Joslin's surprise. They talked with each other and eventually Conrad Roth offered Joslin a job as the mechanic of the Endurance.[6]

Yamatai Expedition (2013)

Right in the middle of Alisha's summer vacation Joslin gets called to fix the Endurance's engine room's devices that suddenly breaks.[7]


Joslin is tough and during the expedition to Yamatai she is especially tough at Lara.[8] Joslin loves her daughter Alisha very much, more than anything and she keeps her daughter away from the expeditions.[9][10]


Joslin has a 6-year-old daughter, Alisha[11], whose father is Conrad Roth.[12] Joslin felt deep affection to Conrad Roth, as she especially was "in pain" over his death.[13]

Joslin has a sister, Una,[14] with whom Joslin and Alisha live.[15] She also has a brother, who owns a garage.[16]

Joslin 'Jos' Reyes grew up in one of the roughest neighborhoods of Queens, New York. She's straight talking and no nonsense, but has warm side she doesn't share easily. She is also fiercely loyal and someone you really wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of. After being accused for the murder of a local gang leader, Reyes was suspended from the NYPD. Due to a natural affinity with engines, she re-trained and found work as a mechanic.

Reyes and Roth have known each other for 10 years, and on occasion she works on his ship as chief mechanic. Reyes has a 6-year-old daughter, Alisha. Alisha often lives with Reyes' sister when she's off working with 'Uncle Roth'. Reyes hates being away from her, but Roth pays better than any garage she's ever worked for. Getting back home to her daughter is always Reyes' main motivation. One day she'd like to make enough money to open her own garage and spend more time with her daughter. Because of Alisha, Reyes won't sacrifice herself for anyone, but will still put herself in danger for people when her cop training kicks in.
