Richard Hernandez was born a man in Maricopa County, Arizona and at the beginning he seemed quite content with that skin. Things did not stay that way for too long however as he became a she and she now actively pursues a dream to evolve from a mere transgender woman to become a dragon lady.
For this reason, she has undergone a number of painful procedures over the past few years inclusive of; nose modification, tooth extraction and eye coloring. She also has a forked tongue and a full-face tattoo as part of her transformation into a ‘mythical beast’.
Currently, she goes under the name of Eva Tiamat Baphomet Medusa or Tiamat for short. Tiamat is a dragon video character, which she has apparently settled on after undergoing various stages of transformation over the years. She along with the other modifications, has had horns implanted onto her forehead and the tattoos and scarification are not exempt from the rest of her body as her chest features somewhat resemble reptilian scales. The whites of her eyes have been stained green to achieve what she calls the ‘Medusa green eyes of death’.
Tiamat on her website explains that she is shedding off her human self to fully become a reptile; “I am the Dragon Lady…a pre-op M2F (male to female) transgender in the process of morphing into a human dragon…I’m 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. As for pronouns I prefer to be called “it” and not be referred to as a she or a her. WELCOME TO OBLIVION!”
‘It’ has done interviews for YouTube Channels focused on body modification, has a large Facebook following and regularly posts inspirational quotes. ‘It’ recently shared a series of ‘before and after’ transformation photographs spanning from 1990 to 2016 (pictured above), showing it taking on a number of different identities – starting as a man called Richard Fernandez with dark hair and a moustache, and gradually taking on more surgery and inking.
