Item #: SCP-3137

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-3137 is restrained on an operating table fitted with panels on either side which fold up and lock together to form a containment chamber resembling a casket, henceforth referred to as "the casket".

The casket is soundproofed to prevent the transmission of any vocalizations that may be produced by SCP-3137. In addition, the interior is lined with padding to attenuate any percussive impacts on its surface that may be inflicted by SCP-3137. The exterior of the casket is opaque and lacking any means to observe the interior without opening the casket. All joints are dampened to ensure that they remain as silent as possible during operation and must be lubricated monthly to maintain good working order.

The casket maintains its own internal atmosphere with the air circulated in a closed system so as to prevent any direct contact with the outside air. Both the inlet and outlet connectors, as well as the connecting tubing, are opaque and insulated to prevent the transmission of any sound originating from within the casket. The air exchanger is affixed to the far end of the table top and is soundproofed so as to further prevent the outward transmission of any sound propagated through the tubing.

The containment site is constructed as follows. The main containment area consists of one chamber measuring approximately 10m by 10m in the center of which is located the casket containing SCP-3137. Centered on one side of this chamber is a soundproofed door leading to an adjoining corridor measuring 2m by 6m, on the other end of which are soundproofed vertically-sealing blast doors with quick release bolts for emergency sealing. There are two adjoining rooms at either side of the corridor; one measuring 6m by 4m which serves to house personnel not currently guarding SCP-3137 and one measuring 4m by 4m which serves to house the overseeing officer of the site with surveillance equipment. All walls consist of 1m thick concrete covered in soundproofed panels. All chambers sans the overseeing officer’s are outfitted with ceiling mounted anaesthetic dispersal vents in the event of a breach.

SCP-3137 is to be kept in a medically induced coma at all times. Vitals are to be constantly monitored via two display consoles in simultaneous operation to ensure redundancy and two medical personnel are to remain on-site to ensure that the comatose state is maintained. Two security personnel with level 2 clearance are to guard the site and must be equipped with active audio-visual obfuscation headgear (AVO-Blocker) while on duty. Personnel not currently assigned to duty are to remain in the personnel chamber until such a time as they are needed. These include a further two medical personnel assigned to nursing duty of SCP-3137 as is mandated for the care of comatose patients, and a further two security personnel with level 2 clearance to assist in procedure SR-Lazarus-1 should an awakening event occur. The site is to be overseen by one lead researcher with level 4 clearance to remain in their chamber assigned to them for the duration of their shift.

An awakening event warrants immediate notification of the site’s overseeing officer and will trigger procedure HK-Lazarus.

Description: SCP-3137 appears to be a human female of European ancestry in her late forties with a very low body mass due to an atrophied muscular system and an advanced emaciated state. Head is kept shaven to ease handling of subject. Eyes and tongue have been removed for unknown reasons by what appear to be precise incisions. All injuries appear to be self-inflicted.

Addendum 3137.1 (Incident 3137-AE-1): Awakening event occurred following delayed administration of narcotics due to rupturing of blood vessel used for intravenous access and inability to locate replacement within acceptable time parameters due to subject’s advanced state of atrophy. Subject awoke in heightened physiological state with elevated heart rate, blood pressure, and respiratory rate. Subject appeared to be in great psychological distress and continuously attempted to produce vocalizations but was unable to form intelligible words due to severed tongue. Subject seemed to be reacting to something unseen and tracking movements with its head even though subject lacks eyes. Following a period of approximately six minutes during which subject maintained reported behaviour with failed attempts at communication, tracking unseen movements with head, and violently struggling against restraints, successful sedation was achieved. It should be noted that psychological distress escalated immediately following administration of anaesthetic, with subject observed thrashing, wailing, and crying before anaesthesia took effect. Lead researcher Dr. ████ ████ ruled subject to be experiencing hallucinations due to prolonged period of sedation.

Amendments made to containment procedures following incident are as follow. Two (2) dedicated anaestheticians with ICU experience are to be on-site at all times. Intravenous access changed from peripheral venous catheter (PVC) to central venous catheter. PICC was considered but rejected due to subject’s limbs required to be restrained. Inhalational anaesthetic made available as an alternative means of sedation should intravenous access be unavailable at scheduled time of administration.
