Frenchtoaster10 - SCP-XXXX kitsune nanobots

Item #: SCP-XXXX
Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be locked away, available only for use when given higher permissions. SCP-XXXX-1 is to be contained in a thickly padded cell. The cell should be monitored daily for any strange behaviors of the subject. Should SCP-XXXX-1 escape the containment, safety protocols should be taken and the vicinity should be evacuated until SCP-XXXX-1 can be contained again.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a watch-like object, that fits around a subject’s wrist. Adorned at the top of SCP-XXX , there is a small operable keypad, with numbers 1 through 4. There is also a screen which displays the numbers that are pressed. SCPXXX resembles a commonly found wristwatch.

Engraved in intricate letters below the keypad is the number is 3412. If a subject wears SCP-XXXX around their wrist and the following numbers are entered into the keypad, the object will open a small compartment on the underside of SCP-XXXX and will then dispense microscopic nanobots for approximately 5 seconds before closing. It is unknown how SCPXXX creates these nanobots, as attempted infiltration has proven futile.

Once the nanobots have been released from SCP-XXXX, they will commence to infiltrate the wearer’s pores by any means possible. After the release of the nanobots, SCP-XXXX will unclamp from the subject’s wrist and fall to the ground. If a number other than 3412 is entered into SCP-XXXX’s keypad, SCP-XXXX will emit a high voltage electrical shock, instantly terminating the wearer. No numbers entered into this keypad seem to have the same effect as entering 3412.

Once the nanobots enter the subject’s pores, after approximately 2 minutes (varies per subject) the subject will undergo violent hallucinations, and often have to be contained as the subjects have been documented to thrash and attack themselves or others. The subject will henceforth be called SCP-XXXX-1.

Generally within an hour of the hallucinations, the subject will break out into a high fever, and will lay dormant for approximately 2-3 days. During this time, the subject’s body will begin to regress into that similar of a kitsune fox often depicted in Japanese folklore. The transformation process is very painful for the subject, as they are seen to be thrashing about and shrieking. Ears appearing similar to that of a fox will sprout from the subject, (varying in color) along with sharper canines than that of a human, longer fingernails, and 9 tails growing from the coccyx, about 1.5 meters in height. When the subject’s awakens, vertical pupils like that of a cat A significant change in eye color before that of the regression was also noted. A bright yellow is the most commonly observed color of the eyes when the subject awakes from the dormant state.

Following the dormant state, the subjects have been shown to not be capable of more than a few words, and appear to have regressed with behaviors to no more than a wild fox. Animalistic behaviors like clawing, growling, and hissing were common. When the first subject was taken in for experimentation, The research was halted [DATA EXPUNGED] after the death of a researcher and 4 injured. Following this event, subject and the following subjects of SCP-XXXX-1 were to be contained in a padded cell and to only be studied in captivity.

Addendum: Researcher Note
Also to be noted, the underside of the SCP-XXX is engraved on a small brass plate with the maker’s mark. The year has been roughly scratched off too much to be legible, More test with the use of x rays is required. There is also small text that clearly states the the makers mark, “[REDACTED] Hills”. This company appears to be a company based in japan and, went out of business in 1957.
