An American, Richard Hernandez, is a banker who gave up his career in finance and decided to become a ‘human Dragon.’
Richard transitioned to become a “dragon lady” – called Tiamat Legion Medusa.
The Los Angeles resident spent £61,000 on an extreme makeover that’s consisted of ear removal and tongue splitting surgery and now wants to cut off their penis as reported by Daily Mail.
After transitioning from male to female, Tiamat’s breasts grew as a result of hormone therapy, but now, they’ve decided they’d rather be genderless.
Tiamat said: I am in the process of going genderless, so I prefer they, them pronouns. Top of my priorities is to say goodbye to Mr. Bojangles, my penis, as soon as possible. My ultimate preference is to simply be called an ‘it’, just like my own kind, the snakes. My metamorphosis is nowhere near done.
After being abandoned in the woods as a child, Tiamat denounced their birth parents in favour of a snake.
The dragon lady recalled: 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.
After coming out as gay aged 11, Tiamat became a target for bullying.
This prevented the student from professing their dreams of being a girl. For years, they kept their true identity secret.
Upon leaving high school in 1979, the graduate packed up life in the Texas town of Bruni to pursue a career in banking.
Tiamat said: 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.
Tiamat’s life changed following a devastating HIV diagnosis. Because they felt they will die soon, they started modifying their body.
Tiamat hopes the transformation will be complete by 2025.
