Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: SCP-XXXX was Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX was kept in an enlarged containment locker. No-one was allowed to take SCP-XXXX-A off SCP-XXXX-B and wear it over their face. Personnel did have to take psychiatric tests monthly to ensure if they still were suitable to be working with and around SCP-XXXX-A and SCP-XXXX-B.

Description: SCP-XXXX was a collective term used to describe SCP-XXXX-A and SCP-XXXX-B. SCP-XXXX-A was a red Japanese ritual mask resembling what is referred to as an "Oni". Its design did date back to the Edo period. SCP-XXXX-B was a clay model of a head. The origins of SCP-XXXX-B were unknown. Putting SCP-XXXX-A near SCP-XXXX-B did cause SCP-XXXX-A to automatically gravitate towards and onto SCP-XXXX-B.

Seeing SCP-XXXX did cause humans to speak and write in past tense unknowingly. A person speech pattern did also change if they did see another person under SCP-XXXX's influence writing in past tense. Wearing SCP-XXXX did cause severe burns of the wearer through unknown means. Past victims did describe it as "hellfire". Touching the burns of other victims did also cause extreme pain to both subjects. Wearing SCP-XXXX did remove the alteration in the speech pattern.

SCP-XXXX was capable of interaction via speech as long as no organic material had touched SCP-XXXX within the last 43 hours and 34 minutes. The voice of SCP-XXXX did cause a uncertain feeling in interviewer who did hear it. Asking SCP-XXXX about its origins did cause it to cease speaking.

Interaction Log: Interaction with SCP-XXXX first began five (5) days after it had been contained.
