I remember that time when someone tried to prove they were male, stating that as they were humanoid, then they'd have more feminine, curvy forms if they were females. Yet they're literally described as godesses, which, from a mural Lara reads, were once graceful. Living on earth for so long, often underground, has led them to become deformed, grotesque even. Only the Crimson Fire remains slightly more obviously female.

It is interesting how they've devolved. How they've become almost feral. The lack of top lip is interesting, it certainly doesn't seem practical, yet maybe they no longer need it, as they use their teeth to tear into victims? The Crimson Fire looks like she has a few metal (gold?) teeth, perhaps the lack of the top lip shows these off better, to be even more intimidating.
