Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be held in a standard humanoid containment cell. The interior of the cell is to be designed as an anechoic chamber, and be made soundproof. The only entrance is to be by way of a single door, equipped with both an electronic and analogue lock, at the end of a 50 meter hallway. While interacting with SCP-XXXX, personnel should wear noise cancelling headphones. Only Personnel with Level 3 clearance or above are to be allowed access to SCP-XXXX’s containment, outside of approved testing.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a humanoid entity approximately 3.3 meters tall with an extremely withered appearance, and a hunched back. It has canid legs, and it’s vaguely human arms ending in hands with only three digits. It possesses an approximately three (3) meter long tail. Its head vaguely resembles that of a human skull, with a severely disjointed jaw.

SCP-XXXX’s primary effect lies in its vocalizations. While most sounds do not manifest any anomalous effects, one specific cry causes individuals who hear it to become lethargic and unmotivated,1 eventually dying of starvation. Noise canceling headphones seem ineffective in neutralizing the effect, only slowing them down.

Recovery Log:

SCP-XXXX first came to the attention of the Foundation after reports came in from the town of Centralia, Pennsylvania in 1962. Originally a coal mining town, all exports from the town had stopped coming in. Federal investigators had been dispatched to investigate, and found that the town’s miners had become lethargic, refusing to work. At this point, the Foundation was notified.

After discerning SCP-XXXX was located in the mines Task Force Sigma-9 was dispatched to contain SCP-XXXX, though they soon fell under the effects of SCP-XXXX (See Field Report XXXX-A). Task Force Sigma-9 was incapacitated, but they had managed to clue Agents in that the anomaly was primarily sound-based.

Following this, a secondary attempt at containment was made by Mobile Task Force Gamma-3 was deployed, equipped with noise cancelling headphones with built in radio links. Even with these precautions, containment was not easily achieved, although MTF Gamma-3 was successful. During secondary containment efforts, an incendiary grenade had been thrown into the coal mine, starting a fire in the coal mines.
