Stephan Bibrowski (1890-1932)
Lionel The Lion-Faced Man
Lionel was born in Poland as Stefan Bibrowski. He suffered from a condition called hypertrichosis which left him covered from head to toe in a fine 1" long hair. He was a very intelligent man who spoke five different languages. It's rumored that he wanted to be a dentist but figured he'd earn more as a freak.
