Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX has three separate stages in which depend on the stage of development SCP-XXXX is currently within.

  • Stage One Containment Procedures are to be conducted assuming SCP-XXXX is at Stage One of the object's development. SCP-XXXX is to then be contained within a standard security locker, made primarily of steel. Said container is to then be kept within a room capable of sustaining a constant temperature of 0°C or lower.
  • Stage Two Containment Procedures are to be conducted assuming SCP-XXXX is at Stage Two of the object's development. SCP-XXXX is to be held within an Organ Care System Unit, fed a steady intake of cerebro-spinal fluid, and O-type human blood. The internal temperature of the Organ Care Unit is to be kept at constant temperatures between 20°C to 28°C.
  • Stage Three Containment Procedures are to be conducted assuming SCP-XXXX is at Stage Three of the object's development. SCP-XXXX is to be contained within a specialized, larger Organ Care System Unit, retrofitted to include Foundation-approved modular modifications. SCP-XXXX is to be fed a steady intake of cerebro-spinal fluid, and O-type human blood. The interior of the Organ Care System Unit is to be flooded with a clear nutrient solution.

At all stages of SCP-XXXX's development, under no circumstances is introduction of non-living, solid, organic matter allowed without permission from a Security Clearance Level 3 researcher. SCP-XXXX is to be housed within Research Site 87-Delta.

Description: SCP-XXXX's appearance depends on the stage of it's development.

  • At Stage One, SCP-XXXX is a small, black, spherical object three centimeters in diameter. The object's composition is a hard, black substance, made of tightly packed neurons. The neurons are inactive, and show similarities to human cranial nerves. SCP-XXXX is capable of locomotion, attaining a maximum speed of two meters-per-second, via rolling. Upon the surface of SCP-XXXX, appears English text which is heavily faded and barely legible, only the subsequent text being visible enough to be transcribed:

SE█I█L NO. 22██7█86 ██OTOTY█E
TEL█ME█E LA███ATORIES
"█I█ON"

  • At Stage Two, SCP-XXXX will be burrowed into an arrangement of brain matter, multiple brains of several animals connected via spinal cords, or makeshift tethers composed of brain cells. The amount of brain matter depends on how long SCP-XXXX has been active in this stage, but the arrangement is consistent, multiple brain 'nodes' attached to various surfaces in the area SCP-XXXX has 'chosen', including walls and ceilings. The object is capable of constructing crude limbs made out of muscle and bone, collected from dead organisms within the vicinity.
  • At Stage Three, SCP-XXXX will have clumped together the collected cerebral mass in the object's possession, compounding them into a vague, central neural structure. Leftover cerebral nodes are carried by the makeshift limbs constructed by the object, and held within a chest cavity of whichever organism SCP-XXXX has used within the construction of it's new body. SCP-XXXX's body will take the appearance of a vaguely bipedal structure, made with the available parts within it's vicinity.

SCP-XXXX has been observed to be capable of sustaining these stages of development for an indefinite amount of time, exhibiting an anomalous property of preventing the rotting of neural matter when in physical contact. No other biological substance benefits from this anomaly.

Discovery and Acquisition: SCP-XXXX entered Foundation possession after an MTF raid upon [REDACTED] Laboratories, a company founded by a Dr. [REDACTED], former head bio-technologies researcher for one of Prometheus Labs' Bioengineering Facilities. The main laboratory of [REDACTED] was illegally constructed underground in ██████ State Park, ██████, ██. After reports of anomalous items being manufactured at the facility, the Foundation seized the laboratory in 20██, taking hold of leftover anomalous objects, and taking all former personnel into custody.

Of the reported anomalous items listed in the facility's inventory, most were nowhere to be found, absent along with Dr. [REDACTED] himself. Heavily censored technical documents upon the proposal and manufacturing of SCP-XXXX were found.

SCP-XXXX was found using the limited information provided, examining animal populations and presences of animal carrion, until the object was found within the fresh corpse of an eastern ground squirrel. Retrieval and storage was subsequent, and Research Site 87-Delta created around the now-defunct headquarters.

An investigation into Dr. [REDACTED]'s place of residence, as well as his office, revealed several documents involving anomalous technologies and research which were previously thought to be destroyed or stolen from Prometheus Labs, and never recovered. There were also several legal documents regarding Dr. [REDACTED]'s demotion from head bio-technologies researcher due to his use of illegal and unethical methods of conducting research into said fields, which would "draw unnecessary ire from other organizations". Dr. [REDACTED]'s whereabouts are unknown.

Addendum XXXX.1: The following documents were recovered from [REDACTED] Laboratories, and subsequently logged into the Foundation database.

Addendum XXXX.2: The following documents are in-Foundation experiments in order to more-fully document SCP-XXXX's capabilities.
