Item #: SCP-4613

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-4613 is located in Site-[REDACTED] in a desert in [REDACTED].

SCP-4613 must be contained within a 18-18-18 meter inner cube suspended in the center of a 92-92-92 meter reinforced steel and concrete cube. The inner cube must have all of the outer walls comprising of 36 centimeter thick Plexiglas. The inner walls, floor, and ceiling of the concrete and steel outer cube must be covered in perpetual active Xenon arc lamps set to shine directly at the center of the inner cube. Suspended in the center of the Plexiglas inner cube by magnets, as to cast no shadow, is a 3-3-3 meter hollow titanium cube in which SCP-4613 is "contained".

Site-[REDACTED] has a 50 Km dead zone radius. The perimeter is to be fenced and remotely monitored with automatic turrets every 500 meters. Within 61 meters of the main containment enclosure are fifteen titanium cubes in the case of a breach. The immediate area around the main containment enclosure and the 15 titanium cubes is to remain well lit with no visible shadows at all times.

Site-[REDACTED] is specifically designed to contain SCP-4613 and should never house any SCP other than. Any personnel found with any unauthorized SCP on site is to be terminated and the SCP confiscated and returned to its original site. (See addendum 1 for constraints)

No personnel are to enter or exit Site-[REDACTED] without the authorization of at least four 05 personnel .

NO EXPERIMENTATION IS TO TAKE PLACE ON SCP-4613 OR SCP-4613-1's UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE

Description: SCP-4613 was discovered in Site-[REDACTED] after "consuming" the six man response team Beta-12 and four agents during a complete containment breach. How it came to be is unknown.

SCP-4613 is a roughly humanoid shaped patch of pure darkness. It resides in shadows and dark spaces. When exposed completely to light with no visible patches of darkness it will seemingly teleport to the nearest shadow or dark area and seems to do so at will.

When in the dark or a shadow it is capable of instantaneous movement and the creation of what are collectively considered SCP-4613-1's. Instances of SCP-4613-1 are created when SPC-4613 or another instance of SCP-4613-1 "consumes" a human and leaves behind an SCP-4631-1. The process of "consuming" is almost instantiations. SPC-4613-1's are completely identical to SPC-4613 in every way.

SCP-4613 and instances of SCP-4613-1 are sentient, highly intelligent, and act seemingly with an ulterior motive. There is truly no way to contain SCP-4613 or instances of SCP-4613-1's due to their ability to teleport to any shadow or area of darkness, there are only ways to deter them from moving. Therefore it is hypothesized that the reason it has been "contained" is due to some form of hibernation that SCP-4613 and its instances of SCP-4613-1's are undergoing.

Currently there are only SCP-4613 and 10 instances of SCP-4613-1 in existence and containment. There are no known ways of stopping or destroying SCP-4613 or instances of SCP-4613-1. A containment breach would lead to a CE-class event.

SCP-4613 IS CAPABLE OF A CE-CLASS1 EVENT AND IS TO BE DESTROYED BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

Addendum 1: Any SCP allowed on site must be approved by the entire board of 05's, three heads of security, and Site-[REDACTED]'s administrator
