I went from banker to asexual reptile
A BIG FORMER banker has given up his high-flying job and spent thousands of dollars on body modifications to transform himself into an asexual reptile.
Los Angeles’ Tiamat Legion Medusa, formerly Richard Hernandez, was abandoned in the woods as a child and shared her journey to becoming a full-fledged “reptoid.”
To date, they’ve spent over $60,000 on body modifications, including castration, ear removal, tongue splitting, and 18 horn implants.
And the fantasy makeover isn’t over with the pre-op transgender planning penis removal, teeth removal, and more tattoos to fully transform from human to reptilian.
The 60-year-old said: “People think edited people, especially those who go to extremes to look like something out of a sci-fi movie, are losers and dumb as dirt.
“In my past life as a man, I was vice president of banking at one of the largest financial institutions in the country.
“I want people to know that modified people are just as smart, kind, loving, and good as anyone else.
“Just because I had my ears removed doesn’t mean my brain just went out and I’m just a jaded idiot.”

Tiamat said he struggled to be born a boy from age 11 and came out as gay – when dreams of being a girl had to be hidden away.
After graduating from high school in 1979, they fled the small town of Bruni to live in Houston, and life took a positive turn when an entry-level clerk position opened up at JP Morgan Chase Bank.
But the decision to change careers and first get changed in 1997 with a £330 ($400) pair of horns came following a diagnosis of HIV and then AIDS which at the time was considered 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 has made a full recovery and is now classified as undetectable and untransmittable.
He continued, “I remove parts of myself that offend me, including some of my physical attributes and also how I live my life today as both a human and a reptilian creature.
“To have been to hell and back, to have endured so much cruelty from humans, to turn into something of another species is my own way of dealing with the spiritual, emotional and psychological pain and anguish that continues to torment me throughout my life today.
“It’s my way of approaching life and the hand that has been extended to me,

“It may not be how others would have handled it, but it’s my life and I’ll do it my way – and I’ll keep marching to the beat of my own drum.”
Following their initial transformation, Tiamet developed 38B breasts as a result of hormones and underwent prostate removal and castration as part of the change from male to female.
The budding dragon also has 18 horn implants, both ears removed, partial nose removal and a Harry Potter Voldemort character-inspired remodel, all but six teeth removed with those remaining sharpened to spikes, the whites of both eyes permanently dyed green, a bifurcation of the tongue to mimic a snake’s fork.
And having now become fluid, they have legally changed their name and claim to want to be an inspiration to non-binary individuals.
“I’m becoming asexual, so I prefer them, those pronouns. My ultimate preference is to simply be called an “it”, just like mine, the snakes.
“It is my goal and mission to break gender binary and inspire others to accept being non-binary by sharing my non-gender story.”

Tiamat hopes the full transformation will be completed by 2025 and will receive seven new horns as well as a penectomy – the complete removal of the penis.
He said: “I’m not done yet, I’m going to get more horns and keep breaking my own record as the most modified human being in the world.”
