These days, with the help of all kinds of technologies, people can practically transform into anything. News have it that a male to female transgender has further started her transformation into a dragon, after being diagnosed with HIV. She said she wanted to “not die a human”.
The 56 years old former banker, was named “Richard Hernandez” at birth, but after he transgendered into a female goes by “Eva Tiamat Baphomet Medusa”, Tiamat for short. Eva spent a minimum of £42k for the transformation process, It started off by getting tattoos and scarification on its face and chest to make it look like it has scales instead of human skin, and has gone ahead to have a whole slew of transformative work done: Tooth extraction, eye coloring (dying his eye green), implantation of horns (eight horns precisely), removal of ears, modification of nose and a procedure to give it a forked tongue.

The self acclaimed “most modified transsexual in the world”, is from Bruni, Texas, and prefers to adverb “it” to be used in describing itself
Leaving the corporate world behind, Eva began morphing into the reptilian form she’d always longed to have, claiming that after being abandoned by her parents at the age of five, she was ‘born again’ under the care of the western diamondback rattlesnake.
The now 56-year-old began her transformation with a series of scale tattoos before later having her nose re-shaped, ears removed and the whites of her eyes permanently stained green – all costing an estimated $60,000(£42k)
But with a further $40,000 (£28k) worth of modifications still planned, Eva opened up about her ‘trans-speciesism’ to The Wizard of Odd TV (**mandatory hyperlink**) in a hope to break down the boundaries for others like her.
Eva said: “For me, my transformation is the greatest journey of my life.
“There are profound reasons and deep meanings about my transformation and why I’m doing it.
“I have eight horns on my forehead; I have had my ears removed; my nose reshaped; most of my teeth removed; I’ve had the white-part of my eyes stained; my tongue bifurcated; my whole face is tattooed and I’ve had some scarification and branding on my chest and wrist.
“I would like for there to be an open dialogue about the world of body modification and understand what it was like to live as a gay-man for 53-years and now as a transsexual woman.
“There’s a lot of misunderstanding about what it means to be transsexual and then further than that – something that I’m introducing – the idea of trans-speciesism.“I consider myself not just to be human anymore; I’m human and reptilian.
“My greatest desire in life is to continue my body modification until my metamorphosis is complete.
“This is what drives me – this is the reason why I get up every day and live.”
According to an article in the Daily Mail, “Eva Tiamat Baphomet Medusa” — or “Tiamat” for short — refers to itself as a “mythical beast.”
“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 and embracing my most natural self awareness as a mythical beast,” Tiamat explains on its website.
Tiamat’s website also contains a blog where it writes about its life as a dragon:
“I am no liar and those who do not know me, need to know this truth,” a post from Monday states.
“HUMANS INTRINSICALLY LIE,” it continues. “DRAGONS DON”T (sic) LIE!!!”
