Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-2 is to be contained in a Level 2 safe off-site from any instances of SCP-XXXX-1 to prevent any unneeded violence between entities incidents similar to Incident Report-A. Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be contained in D-class level barracks. On their own, instances of SCP-XXXX-1 pose no threat to security. Should any instance of SCP-XXXX-1 come into contact with SCP-XXXX-2 and become an instance of SCP-XXXX-3, one four level 2 Site Security is to accompany SCP-XXXX-3 at all times until expiration.

Description: SCP-XXXX refers to 3 designations, a total of 34 23 humanoid entities, referred to as SCP-XXXX-1, a piece of Chromium Corundum, also known as a ruby, in the shape of a heart, referred to as SCP-XXXX-2, and any instance of SCP-XXXX-1 that come into contact with the ruby, referred to as SCP-XXXX-3.

Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are humanoid entities where their entire bodies except for their presumed "heads" are comprised of dark [DATA EXPUNGED]. Their "head" is comprised of a completely white, almost jelly-like material. Testing for what it is made of is inconclusive. A singular orifice can be found on the head, but otherwise, it is devoid of any features. Each entity is unique in their own nature, much like humans. This uniqueness can be found in the entities hands and head. Their hands could be shown as [DATA EXPUNGED] or have hands like a human would. Their head shows much of their actions and emotions. Refer to the table below for identifying their emotions. Should any amount of them display negative emotions such as Disgust or Anger, Site security should be dispatched to quell their emotions.

Emotion Description
Content The head will retain an oval shape, much like an egg. This is what emotion most of the entities will display at most times.
Excited The head will begin to stretch upwards, turning into a rod-like shape.
Fear The head will begin to shrink through unknown means until the head is about 1/4th of the original volume.
Anger The head will begin to branch off into many pieces, with parts of its head attaching to the branches.
Sadness The head will begin to melt into a disc-like appearance, drips of the substance will fall from the disc, most likely to simulate crying.
Disgust Multiple branches identified as Fraxinus angustifolia or the Narrow-leafed ash tree will sprout from the top of the entities head.

SCP-XXXX-2 is a piece of Ruby shaped into the form of a heart. It is near impossible to destroy though attempts to crack the gem have shown various forms of success. Besides its imperviousness to damage, nothing about the ruby is anomalous physically. Its anomalous effects become apparent when it comes into contact with any instance of SCP-XXXX-1.

SCP-XXXX-1, when exposed to the ruby, will display a curious behavior towards it, causing its preferential emotion of "Excited" to appear. It will pick up the ruby and put it on its head. A small sinew-like wire will protrude from its head and attach itself to the entities head. At this point, it has become an instance of SCP-XXXX-3. After the entity is put back in its containment chambers along with SCP-XXXX-1, they will display forms of jealousy and disgust. Often leaving it out of group activities and after about 2 hours of continuous exposure, instances of SCP-XXXX-1 will begin to physically harm SCP-XXXX-3, trying to rip the ruby from it. Most often, this quarrel ends when SCP-XXXX-3 has expired from bodily harm and SCP-XXXX-2 is removed from the body.
