Entrance to SCP-XXXX.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: T̶h̶a̶u̶m̶i̶e̶l Euclid (By order of The Ethics Committee)

Special Containment Procedures: A fence perimeter is to be established around SCP-XXXX with 4 armed guards equipped with vital sign monitors patrolling SCP-XXXX's entrance at all times. Shifts are to be swapped every twelve hours with guard teams being changed every 2 weeks due to SCP-XXXX's passive anomalous effects. Mobile Task Force Theta-9 ("Graveyard Shift") is to be stationed at the nearby town of █████ in case of a potential containment breach of SCP-XXXX-1. Containment of SCP-XXXX-1 is to be performed via Protocol TRINCULO with no less than 2 level 3 researchers overseeing execution. For specifications of Protocol TRINCULO, see Addendum XXXX.1.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the designation given to an anomalous cave located within ███████, California. Any human entering within 50m of SCP-XXXX will be susceptible to it's anomalous effects, subjects will initially hear a voice calling out for help from the cave. If the subject enters SCP-XXXX then they will find a stone table engraved with images of human sacrifice, henceforth designated as SCP-XXXX-1. Upon observation of SCP-XXXX-1 afflicted subjects will find the voice has changed from pleading for help to demanding a sacrifice. Afflicted subjects will feel compelled to search for any sapient beings within their vicinity, henceforth referred to as the oblation, if none are found then they will use themselves, then proceed to lay them on SCP-XXXX-1. Once the oblation is laid on SCP-XXXX-1, they afflicted subject will speak a short prayer in their native language and then cut out the heart of the oblation. If subjects perform self sacrifice then they will not expire until the process is complete. Behind SCP-XXXX-1 is a large, stone, statue depicting a warrior garbed in armor and symbols, later confirmed to be of Aztec origin, the object is henceforth designated as SCP-XXXX-2; SCP-XXXX-2 is currently presumed to be modeled after the Aztec god Huitzilopotchli. SCP-XXXX-2 is chiseled with an image of a sun on its chest plate with a ruby in the middle.

SCP-XXXX's main anomalous properties are shown after a sacrifice is made upon SCP-XXXX-1, should a sacrifice be made then the ruby embedded into SCP-XXXX-2 will give off a white luminescence, with the radiance being dependent on the oblation. Furthermore, a location will be chosen by the sacrificer and engulfed in a bright light, with the area of effect and strength being dependent on the oblation.
