Eva Tiamat Medusa, a 55-year-old former banker, has undergone multiple surgeries with the hope of looking more like a dragon.
Medusa, who often goes by Tiamat, now has a full-face tattoo and a forked tongue, reports the Telegraph. She has also undergone nose modification, tooth extraction, ear removal, horn injections and eye colouring in hopes of looking like the legendary creature.
According to The Daily Mail, Tiamat underwent several persona changes until she settled on becoming a dragon.
A picture of Tiamat, taken in 1997 before she underwent any transformative surgeries and still had her birth name, Richard Hernandez, shows someone unrecognizable to what she looks like today.
On her website she writes: “I am the Dragon Lady, a pre-op M2F (male to female) transgender in the process of morphing into a human dragon, becoming a reptoid as I shed my human skin and my physical appearance and my life as a whole leaving my humanness behind.”
“Body modification has given me a new life, a second chance to live my life,” she told news.com.au. “I am happy and at long last at peace with my complete self, how I see and feel myself.”
