Item #: SCP-XXXX-271

Object Class: Thaumiel (Reclassified from Euclid as of initiation of P3-EAVESDROP, see archived containment procedures document attached for information regarding reclassification and reappropriation of SCP-XXXX.)

Special Containment Procedures: Due to the extremely radioactive materials required for containment of SCP-XXXX, all assigned personnel must receive Basic Radioactive Material Handling Safety Certification (BRMHS), with Advanced certification (ARMHS) required for personnel responsible for off-site containment procedures.

SCP-XXXX is housed at Site-19, in a standard humanoid containment cell modified to be lined with 1cm-thick [REDACTED] shutters within the walls, which can be controlled remotely. Because of the short half-life of [REDACTED], the containment cell exists within a larger room, to permit replacement when the shutter has become too decayed to remain functional.

As per P3-EAVESDROP, SCP-XXXX will be required, on occasion, to leave Site-19 for Foundation purposes. SCP-XXXX has been informed that it has consented to such activities. While not in on-site containment, a fully head-covering helmet made from [REDACTED] will be issued for use, and must be worn by SCP-XXXX at all times. Off-site containment failure is not considered dangerous, beyond the environmental hazard the containment equipment presents.

SCP-XXXX is to maintain a grooming regimen of total hairlessness. It is to be informed that the purpose of this is for site hygiene purposes; SCP-XXXX should not be made aware that its true purpose is to conceal the symptoms of radiation poisoning.

In the event that SCP-XXXX breaks containment for a length of time which the supervising researcher determines to be too long for useful recovery to be possible, SCP-XXXX is to be summarily destroyed.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a Caucasian male who is biologically approximately █-██ years old. When not in any way obstructed, SCP-XXXX is capable of perceiving the thoughts and sensations of any and all sapient organisms within a ████ km radius, and perceives all such thoughts simultaneously. With effort, SCP-XXXX is capable of tuning out competing thoughts in order to perceive those of a specific individual or entity’s, but this can only be achieved for short stretches of time.

Ultra-heavy elements are capable of obstructing SCP-XXXX’s ability to perceive the thoughts of others, with [REDACTED] capable of reducing external thoughts to white noise which is less harmful to SCP-XXXX. Less exotic elements have proven largely ineffective except in impractically large quantities. SCP-XXXX is generally not capable of perceiving thoughts beyond ██ degrees of latitude or longitude, because at these distances the Earth's mantle becomes significant enough of an obstructor. It is because of this that off-site containment may be required as per P3-EAVESDROP.

Addendum 1, Regarding P3-EAVESDROP: SCP-XXXX has been allocated to project P3-EAVESDROP, supervised by Dr. Stoeckle. The purpose of P3-EAVESDROP is to utilize the anomalous properties of SCP-XXXX to track containment breaches, spy on groups of interest, and to help secure SCP objects. Due to limited resources, any requests to utilize P3-EAVESDROP must be approved by O5-█.

Addendum 2, Proposal from Dr. Stoeckle to Appropriate SCP-XXXX for Foundation Use

To O5-█

OK, so, I know I’ve been shot down before over this. But I can’t help but feel we’re leaving a valuable asset on the table in XXXX. So here’s my proposal:

The kid is already on death’s door. We kept his head from splitting open but now he’s riddled with cancer and you’ve got people in hazmat suits giving him chemo. The question isn’t if we lose him, it’s when. So, even if we never decide to actually use the [EXPLETIVE REDACTED] human panopticon we’ve got on a hospital bed, it’s obviously prudent to have a backup plan. Which I happen to know that we have.

Once the kid kicks the bucket, just let me clone him. Just one clone, that’s all I need, to see if that even works to make another whatever-the-hell-he-is.

Just think of what we could do with literally unlimited intel.

Dr. D█████ Stoeckle

Note: Dr. Stoeckle was reprimanded for unprofessionalism in a direct missive to O5. Approval was given to create clone of SCP-XXXX, designated SCP-XXXX-2. Cloning process successfully replicated anomalous properties of SCP-XXXX, now designated SCP-XXXX-1. Dr. Stoeckle was given approval for appropriation of SCP-XXXX, under project designation P3-EAVESDROP.
