Serpenzo, the serpent boy
Serpenzo the serpent boy was born with an extremely rare condition, so incredibly rare that science had not yet cataloged it. His entire body below the shoulders took the form of a long, snake-like structure, with mid-ridge spines and a "rattler" at the end. His unique birth defect eventually became known as "Lamia syndrome."
Shunned from normal human society, Serpenzo eventually made a name for himself traveling the world and exibiting himself in a circus side show. Upon the death of his fourth wife under dubious circumstances Serpenzo disappeared, and has become somewhat of an urban legend.
