Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a 5m x 5m x 7m chamber with books, a desk, art supplies, and a remotely activated projector. A 30,000-volt electrical current is to be run through the walls of containment cell at all times. Soft calming music is to be played in SCP-XXXX's cell 18 hours a day. SCP-XXXX is to be assigned a young-adult female psychologist that is to visit the cell and hold a 4-hour therapy session every 48 hours. Surveillance of SCP-XXXX is to be maintained at all times. Should SCP-XXXX begin to show signs of distress, the projector is to be activated to display a video of either a landscape view of a mountainous forest or a tropical archipelago. If the projected video fails to calm SCP-XXXX, the electrical current in the cell is to be diffused into the main room via remotely operated antistatic flaps embedded in the walls. This will weaken SCP-XXXX and it will

When speaking directly to SCP-XXXX, personnel are to refer to the SCP as "Skógurvir"(skoh-ger-veer), as SCP-XXXX does not like the idea of being classified as an object rather than a living being, and doing so will cause SCP-XXXX to become irritated. When asked what this name means, "Skógurvir" is unresponsive. Researchers hypothesize that the name is a mixture of Old Norse, Latin, and other European languages. meaning "Man of the Forest" or "Ghost in the Forest"

Note: Extensive studies have shown that the only way to damage SCP-XXXX is with strong electrical currents. Conventional weaponry is not effective and will only irritate SCP-XXXX.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a 1.8m tall humanoid that is of the mental age of 70-78 years. and what appears to be the the physical age of 15-20. Small, black, leafless-trees sprout from the top of SCP-XXXX's skull, the height of the trees may vary from 11-13 inches to 3 meters, depending on the mood of SCP-XXXX. With more heightened moods being taller and lower moods being shorter. SCP-XXXX's skin appears to be pitch black with no visible variation in tone. SCP-XXXX lacks reproductive organs and all facial features but its eyes (although X-RAYS have revealed a normal skeletal structure). The eyes of SCP-XXXX are nearly 2x larger than that of a normal human and are pale white with no visible iris or pupil. SCP-XXXX has two large emeralds embedded into the outward facing sides of his shoulders. Purpose of these emeralds is unknown, and when asked SCP-XXXX replies with "Nothing of substance." SCP-XXXX wears a black fleece jacket, black denim jeans, and unbound iron shackles on his wrists. Clothing appears to be unable to become dirty, and SCP-XXXX has shown resistance to attempts to remove these clothes.

SCP-XXXX is incapable of speech and communicates by either using hand gestures or "locking" a person in a telepathic conversation. Once locked in telepathic conversation, subjects will be unable to move or speak, and will only be able to communicate telepathically with SCP-XXXX. Subjects who have experienced this telepathic lock have reported that the voice SCP-XXXX uses to communicate is that of a soft-spoken young adult American male. SCP-XXXX has told foundation that it mostly enjoys the conversations it has with personnel, and will often request for personnel to be sent into the containment cell.

When SCP-XXXX becomes upset, it becomes violent. Upon angering SCP-XXXX, it will grow in size, ferocity, and strength, and will attack any human beings that it lays eyes on until it calms down.
