SCP-XXXX-A

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-A and -B are to be kept at Armed Containment Area-78, which has been created for the purpose of containing both SCP-XXXX-A and -B. The coordinates to the facility is to be known only by Level 4 personnel. Mobile Task Force Alpha-07 ("Knights in Shining Armor") is to remain stationed on-site.

The living quarters housing SCP-XXXX-A and SCP-XXXX-B is to be accessible only via elevator that is activated remotely. From the elevator is a corridor where Security Team Skynet is on guard and operated by Artificially Intelligent Conscript E-321. Level 3 personnel and above are only permitted entry beyond this point.

SCP-XXXX-A is to be fed only vegetarian meals daily as SCP-XXXX-B is to be fed an entire cow once a week. Physical contact with SCP-XXXX-A is prohibited. SCP-XXXX-A may make requests that is to be approved by Project Director Wright.

The Hardall family (GOI-3XXX) may be able to contribute in Foundation efforts at maintaining containment. All contributions are to be evaluated by Project Director Wright before implementation.

POI-3XXX, if encountered, is to be immediately terminated, and the facility is to engage lockdown procedures. Failure to confirm neutralization of the individual and lost of contact with MTF Alpha-7 is to lead to the deployment of MTF Nu-5 ("Hammer Down") to Armed Containment Area-78.

Description: SCP-XXXX-A is a human female that stands 1.6 meters tall and weigh 58.7 kilograms. It is somewhat pale-skinned, has black hair, and brown eyes. It is of Daevite origin and descends from royal Daeva lineage. It does not age and is accompanied by SCP-XXXX-B.

SCP-XXXX-B is a large adaptive organism of slightly varying appearance and size. It consistently takes the form of a quadruped with bone plating covering various areas of its body with an elongated head. X-ray imaging has shown the presence of a reptile-like bone structure and several unknown organs1. DNA analysis reveals it to comprise of 34 human individuals, making up 75% while the rest is [REDACTED].

It always accompanies SCP-XXXX-A, and serves as a protector and servant. It would alter its form to perform various tasks for SCP-XXXX-A, either on command or on its own accord. Below is several examples of its alterations when servicing -A:

  • Shaping its body to resemble a table or seat when one of the two is absent.
  • Forming a web limb, which function similarly to an umbrella.
  • Having the top of its back to resemble a royal palanquin.
  • Growing fur and wrapping around -A to provide warmth.
  • Growing multiple limbs and increasing muscle mass to carry objects.

-B is formidable when in a combat situation and becomes hostile to any actions it perceives as a threat such as attempting to touch -A. It has been observed to form a defensive wall or dome with its body around -A.

It has shown signs of sapience, and is spoken to by -A, though it has never spoken. It is unknown if it is incapable or if it simply refuses to speak.

-A is docile and generally silent unless speaking to -B or with personnel. It is capable of speaking English, Daevite, French, Greek, and Sumerian, though limited.

SCP-XXXX-A and -B came to the Foundation's attention when the Hardall family (GOI-XXXX)2 approached the Foundation. They contacted The Administrator and requested -A and -B to enter Foundation custody to ensure the safety of -A. Please see Addendum 01.

SCP-XXXX-A has been a constant target of an unknown individual designated POI-XXXX. The individual is anomalous and not much is known, except being possibly Sarkic. They employ stealth in their endeavor to assassinate -A, and is hostile to Foundation personnel. Over ██ casualties have been caused by POI-XXXX. Due to it being an ongoing threat to the safety of an SCP object, and efforts at capture have been unsuccessful, the Ethics Committee and the O5 Council have approved the individual's termination.

Ms. Allison Hardall

Interviewed: Ms. Allison Hardall

Interviewer: Dr. Emilia Albertson

Foreword: Interview took place in an estate of the Hardall family the Foundation was aware of that was agreed upon for the interview to take place.

<Begin Log>

Dr. Albertson: Hello, Ms. Hardall. I would like to thank you for agreeing to this interview.

Ms. Hardall: You're welcome.

Dr. Albertson: Anyway, can you please tell me about how SCP-XXXX-A came into your family's care?

Ms. Hardall: It was a long time ago and depends if you are familiar with the history of the Daeva.

Dr. Albertson: I am somewhat familiar with the Daeva civilization. Please explain nonetheless.

Ms. Hardall: Well, it was back at a time of war. The Blood Empress of the Daeva was facing an enemy unlike any other that dared try to conquer her domain, the Grand Karcist Ion. One day, in the midst of night, the Empress's eldest daughter, Lovaatar, was no where to be found, and it brought fear to her and her court. She feared for her legacy for she had only one daughter to carry the future of her people.

So she had to send the young princess into asylum.

Dr. Albertson: Then I presume that is when your family comes in?

Ms. Hardall: Yes.

Dr. Albertson: Before you go into that, may you please tell me about SCP-XXXX-B?

Ms. Hardall: The guardian? Well, it was made by the Empress from the corpses of her brave fallen sons that went to battle.

Dr. Albertson: Alright, please continue.

Ms. Hardall: So they transported her north into Europe where my family ruled. We had aided the Daeva in the past, and the Empress could surely trust us. We had knowledge of hidden places, and we were very capable. We also had connections for our family's reach is far.

Dr. Albertson: Such as Marshall, Carter and Dark, correct? How did that come to be?

Ms. Hardall: They were referred to as The Merchants then, but yes. We know Dark personally, but we digress.

Dr. Albertson: Sorry.

Ms. Hardall: It's alright. Anyway, we had kept the princess for years and treated her as our own. Unfortunately, the Daeva had fallen despite them and their allies defeating the Sarkics, who apparently were having an internal conflict. We don't know the details of that. What we do know is the Followers of Mekhane3 were of great aid with their technology.

Dr. Albertson: I heard of them.

Ms. Hardall: Yeah, we raised her ever since and that is all until now.

Dr. Albertson: So why have the princess be under our custody? Why now?

Ms. Hardall: Well, despite the war ending, the spawn of the Grand Karcist are still around. You and I both know that. Our family, despite our efforts in keeping the princess a secret, became a target.

A few failed assassination attempts were directed at members of my family by an unknown assailant. We lost several mercenaries and things got complicated. Whoever it is has left behind a symbol we recognize as Sarkic. We need the princess to be safe.

Dr. Albertson: What was the symbol?

Ms. Hardall: One used by Sarkic assassins a long time ago in the war. Again, please don't let them bring harm to her.

Dr. Albertson: I assure you we won't allow anything to happen to her. Besides, she has the guardian with her just in case. She is safer than she would ever be.

Well. I believe that is all. Again, thank you for agreeing to this interview. It has been a pleasure. Wait, one more thing. What is the princess's name?

Ms. Hardall: Her name is Saana.

Dr. Albertson: Lovely. Thank you and goodbye.
