SCP-XXXX

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is currently contained in a modified living complex in Site-██. The complex is under constant video surveillance and any breaches in protocol or changes in SCP-XXXX's behavior are to be immediately reported to the site director, this may result in disciplinary action being taken against the guilty party or the amendment of containment protocol. All on-site personnel and visitors to Site-██ are required to read Document-XXXX-EP1.

SCP-XXXX's containment housing should be capable of permanently housing at least ten individuals and is to be fully furnished with modern commodities such as televisions, modern video game consoles, board games and surround sound systems. New samples of entertainment media are to be supplied on a regular basis2 and the complex is provided with a heavily restricted internet connection as well as subscriptions to several online streaming services.

SCP-XXXX is to cohabitate with no less than ten D-class personnel who are to be specially picked by the site director3. So long as compliance is maintained these D-class personnel may have their termination dates postponed indefinitely in order to facilitate SCP-XXXX's containment. There should be a group of at least twenty assigned D-class personnel to be kept as reserves in the event any of the D-class personnel involved in containing SCP-XXXX become uncompliant or become instances of SCP-XXXX-1. In emergency situations, Low-level researchers may be used in place of D-class. The D-class personnel housed with SCP-XXXX are to engage in social activities in the direct vicinity of SCP-XXXX for 24 hours a day. Shifts are to be assigned to each D-Class personnel in order to ensure that SCP-XXXX is constantly engaged. These activities may include playing video games together, engaging in jovial conversation together, eating meals together and watching television together. D-class personnel are to greet SCP-XXXX when entering its presence and engage with it in a friendly manner. Despite the fact that for the most part SCP-XXXX is inanimate and does not speak it is essential for containment procedure that SCP-XXXX is treated as though it possesses sapience.

In the event SCP-XXXX breaches containment and one or all of the D-class personnel become instances of SCP-XXXX-1 MTF-Eta-15 "Trouble in Paradise" is responsible for the location and re-containment of SCP-XXXX as well as the apprehension or termination of any SCP-XXXX-1 instances.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a misshapen sculpture of a feline head. SCP-XXXX is roughly 1 meter in length and is constructed entirely of a rusted wired endoskeleton covered in poster-painted paper mache. The words "PLAY NICE" are crudely written in red acrylic paint on the back of SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX possesses the ability to instantly transport itself to any geographical location. SCP-XXXX seems to be attracted to locations currently occupied by individuals engaging in social interaction, commonly materializing amongst groups of people during casual conversion. If left in isolation SCP-XXXX will transport itself to a new location within a short period of time, SCP-XXXX will also change locations occupied by socializing individuals if it is ignored or insufficiently interacted with. Upon materializing in a location SCP-XXXX will remain stationary and inert. SCP-XXXXX's secondary anomalous properties will only activate if a person within SCP-XXXX's vicinity engages in any of the following activities.

  • Verbally acknowledging SCP-XXXX in a negative way such as insulting its appearance.
  • Referring to SCP-XXXX with an expletive in a negative connotation.
  • Immediately fleeing the vicinity of SCP-XXXX upon manifestation in a fashion that implies fear of or repulsion towards SCP-XXXX.
  • Attempting to physically harm or damage SCP-XXXX.

The carrying out of any of the previously listed actions will cause SCP-XXXX to spontaneously demanifest from the area and reappear in another SCP-XXXX suitable area. Any individuals who engage in the previously listed activities will experience an auditory hallucination resembling that of a crying child, after which they will become an instance of SCP-XXXX-1. Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 will become afflicted with a series of psychological symptoms which grow progressively worse over time.

Subjects will begin to experience bouts of low self-esteem and self-doubt. Symptoms initially start mildly with subjects losing the ability to genuinely accept compliments while at the same time beginning to doubt their past and current accomplishments. Over time the subject's self-esteem will continue to decline as the individual will begin to find faults with their physical appearance and/or personality even if they were perfectly content with said traits prior to their encounter with SCP-XXXX. Overtime subjects will begin to neglect their hygiene, health and personal responsibilities due to the belief that they're "not worth the effort". Towards the end stages of infection subjects will begin to apologize profusely to every individual they encounter as they will see every action they make as well as their very existence as inherently bothersome or unnecessary. Within two weeks of entering this final stage 100% of SCP-XXXX-1 instances commit suicide. D-Class test subjects who were restrained to prevent self-harm somehow managed to commit suicide by holding their breath until becoming hypoxic. All instances of SCP-XXXX-1 who commit suicide via this method state that "they are not worth the oxygen" before expiring. The use of amnestics and prolonged psychiatric therapy has proved to slow the progression of symptoms however there is currently no way to cure the affliction.

Discovery: SCP-XXXX was recovered from [REDACTED] Middle School in [REDACTED] Illinois on ██/██/2016. SCP-XXXX was brought to foundation attention when insurgents within local law enforcement reported a sudden surge in suicide attempts amongst individuals who attended the school. This was confirmed to be an anomalous occurrence when a student who was hospitalized and restrained after a failed suicide attempt managed to successfully commit suicide by holding their breath until the set in of hypoxia lead to expiration. Despite the attempts of medical professionals to sedate and intubate the subject, the process of which included the administration of general anesthesia the subject managed to continue to hold their breath.

A foundation investigation was launched which led to the identification of SCP-XXXX as the primary anomaly as well as ██ instances of SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX was apprehended and placed under supervised containment while the scope of its anomalous properties could be investigated, while this investigation was taking place SCP-XXXX suddenly disappeared from its containment chamber and materialized in the Break Room on the 5th floor of Building ███. Researchers Dr. Reeves, Dr. Stanley and Dr. Atkinson were eating lunch in the room at the time and upon the manifestation of SCP-XXXX Dr. Reeves pointed at the anomaly and stated; "What the fuck is that?". Immediately afterwards SCP-XXXX vanished and Dr. Reeves became an instance of SCP-XXXX-1. The containment breach alarm was sounded and SCP-XXXX was apprehended and contained. Before current containment procedures were devised SCP-XXXX managed to infect ██ foundation personnel.
