Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Containment of SCP-XXXX is centered around public disinformation. Mobile Task Force Gamma-5 ("Red Herrings") is to monitor SCP-XXXX for significant deviations in new SCP-XXXX-2 instances on a daily basis. Any signs of such a trend warrant investigation into domesticated animals demographics on said day, and areas of noticeable fluctuation in disappearance of domestic animals are to be investigated for anomalous influence by SCP-XXXX-1. If anomalous influence is confirmed, SCP-XXXX-1 is to be questioned and reprimanded, and false information on the fate of domestic animals is to be dispersed as necessary to ensure continued secrecy of SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX-1 is implanted with a subdermal tracking device and is to remain within SCP-XXXX. The wooden fence surrounding SCP-XXXX has been vertically extended, repaired, and reinforced with high-voltage electric wiring. However, SCP-XXXX-1 has thus far been cooperative with the Foundation, and risk of direct containment breach is negligible.

Description: SCP-XXXX​ is a ranch style house and approximately 14km x 14km forest clearing in northern China, roughly 300km from the nearest civilization. SCP-XXXX is separated from the heavily forested surroundings by non-anomalous wooden fencing, and human subjects are free to enter and exit SCP-XXXX. Surrounding the house in the center of SCP-XXXX are several plastic dispensers that provide distilled water or various food related items, including raw beef, raw chicken, several species of fish, small fruits and berries, and small nuts and legumes.

SCP-XXXX-1 is a human male, likely of eastern Asian origin, 145cm in height, that resides within SCP-XXXX. Biologically, SCP-XXXX-1 is consistent with a physically healthy human male in his mid-fifties, and while SCP-XXXX-1 claims repeatedly to be well over 12,000 years old, due to the lack of records from said time period, this cannot be verified at this time. SCP-XXXX-1 is fluent in Mandarin, Wu, Gan, Xiang, Hakka, Yue, and Min, is conversational with Mongolic, and has a rudimentary understanding of English. SCP-XXXX-1 is often seen refilling the dispensers surrounding the house and interacting with SCP-XXXX-2. SCP-XXXX-1 is generally amiable towards humans and shows appreciation for being around commonly domesticated animals1. While SCP-XXXX-1 is not uncooperative with the Foundation, SCP-XXXX-1 shows aversion and abrasiveness to discussing or referring to its anomalous effect.

SCP-XXXX-2 refers to an estimated 300,000 instances of various domesticated animals, all of which fall under species that SCP-XXXX-1 reacts positively towards. Instances of SCP-XXXX-2 roam within the boundaries of SCP-XXXX, demonstrating normal behavioral patterns for their species. Of note is that an overwhelming proportion (~80%) of SCP-XXXX-2 instances are near or past the expected biological life span for their species. In addition, SCP-XXXX-2 instances have not been observed to age, contract disease, or successfully breed.

SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties result from a certain behavior occasionally shown by said species (henceforth labeled Exodus Events). During an Exodus Event, one or more domesticated animals under the care of a human will attempt to flee their current residence and navigate towards the nearest ranch style house with an accessible portal (doors, windows, chimneys, etc.). If said structure does not exist within a certain range of the subject's residence (determined to be variable due to SCP-XXXX-1's effect, but averaging around 14km in radius), the subject will navigate towards the nearest pet-adapted door installation. Failing this, the subject will abandon the Exodus event and return to normal behavior. If the subject succeeds in moving through a suitable portal or installation, they will be instantaneously transported to the inside of the house within SCP-XXXX. Closed-system testing has suggested that Exodus Events are more common when the subject's residence also houses small children or any other sapient being with comparatively low mental faculty. Subjects will also prefer to execute an Exodus Event when not under direct observation by other sapient or sentient beings, or otherwise attempt to be discreet in doing so.

SCP-XXXX-1 has openly confessed to influencing the frequency and success rates of Exodus Events. All information regarding this influence is directly from SCP-XXXX-1, and as such should be approached with skepticism. Supposedly, SCP-XXXX-1 has the capability to create duplicates of itself in positions to assist potential SCP-XXXX-2 instances complete an Exodus Event. Although this procedure is poorly understood, generation of said duplicates of SCP-XXXX-1 results in significantly lowered temperature in the surrounding area, suggesting that SCP-XXXX-1 draws local heat energy in to create duplicates of itself (though notably deviant from currently understood laws of energy conservation). These duplicates will perform simple tasks to assist the potential SCP-XXXX-2 instance in reaching SCP-XXXX. Methods of assistance by these duplicate instances include opening portals, luring subjects to compatible portals, and physically moving subjects.

Interview Log XXXX-A:

Interviewed: SCP-XXXX-1

Interviewer: Researcher Wavre

Foreword: This log is recorded approximately 48 hours after the discovery of SCP-XXXX's and SCP-XXXX-1's anomalous effects, and conducted to confirm the link between the phenomena observed and SCP-XXXX. At this time, updated containment protocols are being designed to handle the widespread nature of said effects. This interview was conducted within SCP-XXXX and translated to English from Mandarin.

Wavre: Afternoon, SCP-XXXX-1.

SCP-XXXX-1: Best to you, friend. Have a seat, I hear that you have something to discuss.

Wavre: Indeed. Over the last several days, we have noticed unusual patterns in the population of domestic animals within SCP-XXXX. Specifically, the rate of population growth here is increasing and there has been a noticeably increased number of reports of pet disappearances around the world. We—

SCP-XXXX-1 appears agitated.

SCP-XXXX-1: Is it not glorious? Do you see what I have accomplished for them? What else could I have done? Let the world discover what I was forced to?

Wavre: Please, SCP-XXXX-1, control yourself. Your cooperation is essential for the benefit of both parties involved here.

SCP-XXXX-1:

Wavre: Indeed, I am here to question your involvement in these incidents, as your property labels you as the most likely candidate. We are under the impression that you have assisted in the transport of domesticated animals to SCP-XXXX. If this is—

SCP-XXXX-1: I could not put them through what I had to experience. They do not deserve to feel that way.

Wavre:…if this is the case, we may have to put additional containment procedures in place. Please keep in mind that we have the capability to disrupt any properties you may utilize to antagonize us.

SCP-XXXX-1: My family was the first to be with them. The gods you see among us. The dogs I see among you. We were their disciples. Disciples to mortal beings, an unthinkable concept.

Wavre: Gods? Could you elaborate on that?

SCP-XXXX-1: I was a young boy, no more than seven years old. I could not cope with the loss of my idol. I simply could not allow this to be. The farm, my family, they are going back to the farm in the north to rest. How could I accept such a lie, that they had left us for their own good? Such a wonderful being would never do such a thing. I would ensure that they did not forget me. I went back and I waited for my gods to return. It was nothing less than truth. The wonderful beings I sold my life to are coming back to me. I know what the children feel. The feeling of losing one you love beyond your family is irreplaceable. I saved them. Never more will they feel the sorrow of a mortal becoming the past. They are now as they should be, immortal and immaculate.

Wavre: I see. Regarding the disappearances, we have observed you assisting subjects in some manner that corresponds with the appearances of SCP-XXXX-2 instances. Based on their actions, we have reason to suspect you have direct influence on these events. Can you explain?

SCP-XXXX-1: Those are not me. Those are who I wish I had been for thousands of years before, and they are born from my regrets. I knew from the day the first one came to me that he was not alone, but I also realized how many more would be unable to return. The poor souls would never be able to return to the farm. And every moment I am haunted by the knowledge that I had the power to stop that fate. I could have guided my deities the way they deserved to be, even one, but I did not. Nobody did. Yet, I am different now than I was centuries ago. At first, it was unintentional. One could say I hated them, constantly reminding me of what I failed to commit to. But now? They've made my role much easier. So, no, I do not have influence on them. They guide my gods to me. I choose not to stop them.

Wavre: Thank you, SCP-XXXX-1. This information will be of great use to us. Please, in the future, we recommend you not interfere with civilization.

SCP-XXXX-1: I do nothing of the sort. I've yet to leave this place in twelve thousand years. They protect what falls outside your interests of science.
