Top banker gives it all up to become a tattoo-covered ‘dragon lady’ body modifier – The Sun
THIS dragon lady was abandoned in the woods as a child but rose to become a banking vice president before transforming into a mythical creature.
Tiamat Legion Medusa has spent at least £61,000 on more than 20 procedures over two decades including castration, ear removal, tongue splitting and 18 horn implants.
But the fantastical makeover isn’t over with the pre-op transexual planning a penis removal and more tattoos next year to morph fully from male to female and from human to reptilian.
The 58-year-old said: “People think that modified people, especially those who go to great extremes to look like something in a sci-fi film, are losers and dumb as dirt.
“In my past life as a man, I was a banking Vice President at one of the nation’s largest financial institutions.
“I want people to know that modified people are just as intelligent, kind, loving, and good as anyone else.
“Just because I had my ears removed, does not mean my brain just rolled out and I’m just a blithering idiot.”

Born Richard Hernandez, the heavily embellished American had to survive child abuse, self-harm and AIDs and on the journey to happiness.
The Los Angeles resident said: “I was abandoned by my parents in the middle of the woods, at night, deep in the heart of South Texas, where the Western Diamondback Rattlesnake abounds.
“It was then, when my human parents shoved me out of the car to leave me there like unwanted trash that I adopted the venomous rattler as my parents.
“They left me and two of my other three siblings close enough to the family farm so that my maternal grandparents would find us.
“My grandfather, sadly, would continue to abuse me verbally, emotionally, and physically, all because my grandfather hated my father and I was named after my father and the spitting image of him.”
Tiamat struggled with being born a boy from age 11 years and came out as gay which resulted in bullying and self-harm. But dreams to be a girl had to be kept hidden.
After graduating high school in 1979 Tiamat escaped the small town of Bruni to live in Houston and life took a positive turn when a position as entry-level clerk opened up at bank JP Morgan Chase.
“Through my 15-year tenure, I rose to become a banking vice president and client manager in the bank's Corporate Banking Division where I managed a diverse portfolio of corporate clients for the bank including on of the bank's top ten clients.”
The decision to get modified for the first time in 1997 with a pair of £330 ($400) horns came following a diagnosis of HIV and then AIDS which back then was thought to be a death sentence.
“Because I thought I was going to die, I started modifying my body as I felt I was in a race against time,” said Tiamat who made a full recovery and today is classed as undetectable and untransmittable.
Tiamat, named after the Mesopotamian goddess who is the symbol of the chaos of primordial creation, has 38B breasts which grew as a result of hormones and has had a prostate removal and castration as part of the change from male to female.
Top of my priorities is to say goodbye to Mr. Bojangles, my penis, as soon as possible.
The wannabe dragon also has 18 horn implants, both ears removed, a partial nose removal and reshaping inspired by Harry Potter character Voldemort, all but six teeth removed with those remaining sharpened to points, the whites of both eyes permanently stained green, a tongue bifurcation to mimic a snake’s fork.
“I am in the process of going genderless, so I prefer they, them pronouns. My ultimate preference is to simply be called an 'it', just like my own kind, the snakes.
“It is my goal and mission to shatter the gender binary and to inspire others out there to embrace being non-binary by sharing my story of going genderless.”
Tiamat hopes the full transformation will be complete by 2025 and in the next year plans to embellish the tattooed rainbow scales which reach from head to toe, add to 18 existing horn implants and get purple ink added to the green staining on each eyeball.
They added: “My metamorphosis is nowhere near done. Top of my priorities is to say goodbye to Mr. Bojangles, my penis, as soon as possible.”
