You get a jewel, all right, but it's not the slave you're supposed to help. It's the slavers. If you sell out the slave, they'll give you a Red Jewel ...
... And there's no other way to get it. If you want to collect all 50 Jewels and unlock a secret boss, you have to betray the slave, as well as your humanity. Neither the slave nor his rescuer are ever seen again. Except for every time you close your eyes, no matter how much you try to drink the guilt away.
Lara Croft Murders Unarmed Workers For Trinkets
In Tomb Raider Chronicles, we find Lara Croft infiltrating an industrial building, because all the good tombs have been inexplicably raided by somebody. Our heroine comes across an unarmed worker in a HAZMAT suit, who immediately surrenders and begs for his life. In case you need a tutorial on basic morality, Lara's partner even comes on the radio and tells her not to shoot him. So naturally, she shoots him.
She then adds insult to
injury death by raiding his tomb later.
Don't worry, it all works out. Since Lara needed that guy alive to open a door, and he is decidedly not alive, she's forced to take an alternate path, where she comes across a bonus item: a golden rose. You knew that because you're a dirty cheater with a GameFAQs account. But Lara didn't -- within the world of these games, this intrepid explorer randomly murdered a guy because she thought it would be funny.
Somewhere in her massive mansion, Lara Croft keeps the golden rose alongside all of her other precious artifacts. Each one has a story. She'll be happy to tell you all of them, except for one. She does not say anything when you ask about the golden rose. She just smiles, as if remembering some special, private moment.
