Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a standard humanoid containment cell, and provided with meals thrice daily, as per the Ethical Treatment of Humanoid Anomalies Act of 2005 (FEL-1523). SCP-XXXX must also undergo weekly medical checkups with in the Site-25 infirmary. Any queries regarding SCP-XXXX, or any of the related anomalies, should be directed to Doctor Elias Spall.

Testing Chamber 31a is currently serving as containment for SCP-XXXX-A. If a method to relocate SCP-XXXX-A is developed, and permission is obtained from at least two Level 4 Personnel, it should be moved into the same humanoid containment cell as SCP-XXXX.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a male humanoid, formerly Frank Jenson, a Level 2 Foundation researcher. Prior to the creation of SCP-XXXX-A and -B, SCP-XXXX displayed no anomalous properties, and was not under surveillance.

SCP-XXXX-A is the severed right leg of SCP-XXXX, currently located in Testing Chamber 31A of Site-25. It is immovable, and impervious to damage of any kind. The leg is suspended approximately 40cm above the floor, seemingly unaffected by gravity. Despite having being separated from SCP-XXXX's body for 1 2 3 4 days1 Despite complete separation from its host's body, SCP-XXXX-A does not seem to display any signs of necrosis.

SCP-XXXX-B refers to an invisible and intangible manifestation occupying the space where SCP-XXXX's leg should be. Despite its incorporeal nature, SCP-XXXX-B is functionally identical to a leg, allowing SCP-XXXX to walk normally.

Addendum XXXX-A: Transcription of Consultation (07-03-18), Excerpt

Dr. Spall: Have you experienced anything abnormal since our last consultation?

Researcher Jenson: No, nothing. Although…

Dr. Spall: What?

Researcher Jenson: Nothing, nothing.

Dr. Spall: Frank, you must tell me everything, no matter how seemingly insignificant. I won't laugh at you.

Researcher Jenson: (sighs) Alright, Doc, alright. Yesterday morning, I was making scrambled eggs. I cracked them into the bowl, mixed them, poured the mixed eggs into the pan, and turned away to grab a spatula.

Dr. Spall: And?

Researcher Jenson: When I turned back, the eggs were on fire. I could only have had my back to them for about four seconds, but there was black smoke everywhere and the flames were foot-high. At least it made me realize my smoke alarm needed new batteries.

Dr. Spall: Interesting. Do you believe this has anything to do with your leg?

Researcher Jenson: Strangely enough, yes. I can't explain it, but the two incidents feel… connected, somehow.

Dr. Spall: I see. Well, that should conclude our meeting for today.

Researcher Jenson: (rises) I'll drop you an email if anything like that h-

Researcher Jenson suddenly freezes, and a near-identical copy of him appears seated in the chair in front of Dr. Spall, also motionless. Of note is that the seated instance is not missing its right leg. Dr. Spall is visibly startled.

Dr. Spall: Frank?

Neither of the instances of Researcher Jenson respond. Dr. Spall rises, walks to a unit of drawers, and returns to his seat with a small rubber hammer. He taps the seated instance's leg just above the knee, eliciting no response.

Dr. Spall: Hmm.

Dr. Spall reaches out and touches the leg. It is corporeal. For the next minute and a half, Dr. Spall makes notes, occasionally glancing between the two Researcher Jensons. Then, with no warning, the instance of Researcher Jenson seated in the chair vanishes, and the instance standing animates again, falling awkwardly against a guard-rail.

Researcher Jenson: Whoa, whoa!

Dr. Spall: What is it?

Researcher Jenson: I… my leg… it felt like it just spasmed or something! I lost my balance for a second.

Dr. Spall: That's odd. Hey, I'd like it if you'd come and see me again tomorrow. I think I know what's going on here.

Researcher Jenson: Really?

Dr. Spall: Well, I think. I just need a chance to read over my notes.

Researcher Jenson: (smiling) Great! I'll see you tomorrow then.

Dr. Spall: Goodbye, Frank.

Researcher Jenson leaves the room. Dr. Spall walks across the room, picks up the phone on his desk, and dials a number.

Dr. Spall: Hello? James? Yes, it's Elias. Have you ever heard of a case of a patient having latency issues?
