SCP-002 Revised Entry

Item #: SCP-002

Object Class: Euclid Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-002 is to remain connected to a suitable power supply at all times, to keep it in what appears to be a recharging mode. In case of electrical outage, the emergency barrier between the object and the facility is to be closed and the immediate area evacuated. Once facility power is re-established, alternating bursts of X-ray and ultraviolet light must strobe the area until SCP-002 is re-affixed to the power supply and returned to recharging mode. Containment area is to be kept at negative air pressure at all times.

Teams including a minimum of two (2) members are required within 20 meters of SCP-002 or its containment area. Personnel should maintain physical contact with one another at all times to confirm there is another person present, as perception may be dulled, skewed, or influenced by proximity to the object.

No personnel below Level 3 are permitted within SCP-002. This requirement may be waived via written authorization from two (2) off-site Level 4 administrators. Command staff issued such a waiver must be escorted by at least five (5) Level 3 Security personnel for the duration of their contact and must temporarily surrender their rank and security clearance. Following contact, command staff will be escorted at least 5 km from SCP-002 to undergo a seventy-two (72)-hour quarantine and psychological evaluation. If deemed fit for return to duty by psych staff, rank and security clearance may be restored when quarantine expires.

Description: SCP-002 resembles a tumorous, fleshy growth with a volume of roughly 60 m³ (or 2000 ft³). An iron valve hatch on one side leads to its interior, which appears to be a standard low-rent apartment of modest size. One wall of the room possesses a single window, though no such opening is visible from the exterior. The room contains furniture which, upon close examination, appears to be sculpted bone, woven hair, and various other biological substances produced by the human body. All matter tested thus far show independent or fragmented DNA sequences for each object in the room.

When SCP-002 is connected to a suitable power supply it seems to enter a recharging mode where it is in a neutral state. During this neutral state when any living human is inside SCP-002 alone or unmonitored SCP-002 will consume and assimilate that human and turns that person into furniture. It is unknown how SCP-002 knows the contents of a house and what furniture can be found in them. It is theorized that when SCP-002 assimilates a person it reads that person’s mind and looks for information about their home and then creates furniture according to what is found in their home. After investigating the offices and houses of those that are believed to be assimilated by SCP-002 and checking to find correlation between the furniture in their houses/offices and the furniture created by SCP-002 is still under investigation but so far has given mixed results.

When SCP-002’s power supply is disconnected SCP-002 enters and enraged state and fleshy tentacles start growing from the outside of SCP-002. These tentacles actively seek out humans to assimilate and are recorded to go at speeds reaching 40km/h (Approximately 25mph). When tentacles become long enough they separate from SCP-002 and turn into humanoid fleshy blobs around 2 metres in height and tentacles extruding from their back and are designated SCP-002-1.

When SCP-002-1 comes into contact with a human it will use its tentacles to incapacitate the human and starts absorbing the human into itself. The more SCP-002-1 absorbs the more it grows and so do its tentacles. Multiple instances of SCP-002-1 can exist and form a hive mind with SCP-002 as its queen. Instances of SCP-002-1 are immensely durable with only X-rays and ultraviolet light being the most effective way to eliminate instances of SCP-002-1. Instances of SCP-002-1 can turn into a liquid like form and pass under doors and small holes. When instances of SCP-002-1 are eliminated they turn to dust. If a power supply is connected back to SCP-002 all instances of SCP-002-1 start to return back to SCP-002 and stand guard around SCP-002. All instances of SCP-002-1 that fail to return back to SCP-002 also turn to dust. All instances of SCP-002-1 can be destroyed without consequences.

Sometimes instances SCP-002-1 go rogue and attempt to build a new SCP-002. These instances are renamed to SCP-002-2. So far a new SCP-002 hasn’t been build. If a new SCP-002 is built a VK-end of humanity scenario is possible. The discovery of this behaviour also contributed to the change from Euclid to Keter. Discovery of any SCP-002-2 colonies is to be put on high priority for destruction.
Recently a planet in an unnamed solar system has been found around twice the volume of Earth. This planet is covered in a fleshy looking substance with instances of SCP-002 and SCP-002-1. This planet has been named SCP-002-P. Change to special containment procedures is unneeded due to the fact that only people with knowledge of SCP-002 and its anomalous properties can see or know about this planet. This includes pictures and recordings. When information about SCP-002-P is communicated with spoken language to someone without knowledge of SCP-002-P they forget everything said about SCP-002-P and when asked to recall what was said previously about SCP-002-P their brains gets turned to a liquid like substance called liquid brain by researchers. If a person drinks liquid brain that person will have knowledge of all of the memories of who’s brain was turned into liquid brain.

Refer to the Mulhausen Report [cross-ref:document00.023.603] for details related to object's discovery.

Reference: To date, subject has been responsible for the disappearances of [Redacted] personnel. It has also in its time at the facility further furnished itself with two lamps, a throw rug, a television, a radio, a beanbag chair, three books in an unknown language, four children's toys, and a small potted plant. Tests with a variety of lab animals including higher primates have failed to provoke a response in SCP-002. Cadavers as well fail to produce any effect. Whatever process the subject uses to convert organic matter into furnishings is apparently only facilitated by the introduction of living humans.

Mulhausen Report [00.023.603]

The following is a brief report detailing the discovery of SCP-002
Subject was discovered in a small crater in northern Portugal where it struck the Earth from orbit. Encased in a shell of thick rock, the fleshy exterior of the object was exposed by the impact. A native farmer happened upon the site and reported his findings to the village elder. Subject gained SCP attention when a Level 4 agent posted in the area detected a small radioactive anomaly generated by the object.
A collection squad of SCP security personnel led by General Mulhausen was immediately dispatched to the area where they quickly secured the subject in a large container and performed initial testing with subjects recruited from the nearby village. Three men individually sent into the structure subsequently disappeared. Upon discovering this deadly property of the subject, General Mulhausen issued a Level 4a Termination Order of any witnesses (roughly 1/3 of the village) to ensure no outside knowledge of the object and initiated its transport to SCP facility [DATA EXPUNGED].

During preparation for transport, four SCP security personnel were inexplicably drawn inside the object where they too immediately disappeared. Following inspection, it appeared as if the object had "grown" several new furnishings and was beginning to look like the interior of an apartment room. General Mulhausen immediately ordered the requisition of several Class III HAZMAT suits for the remaining security team members, who proceeded to lift the container onto a waiting freight ship for transport to the SCP containment facility.

[DATA EXPUNGED]

Following the termination of General Mulhausen, SCP-002 was re-secured by SCP staff and brought into special containment in [CLASSIFIED], where it currently resides. Staff with clearance below Level 3 have been denied access to the SCP-002 container without prior approval of at least two Level 4 staff after the Mulhausen incident.
