Gryfon

(DRAFT)

Item #: SCP-xxxx "Knight Edward"

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment procedures: SCP-xxxx is to be contained in a 5m x 5m x 5m room. The interior is to be lined with reinforced steel plates cobblestone and mortar, and is to be inspected weekly for damages by at least two D-class personnel, any damages are to be reported and replaced with cleanly cut cobblestone. Interviews with SCP-xxxx requires approval from at least two (2) on site Level 4 personnel. Under no circumstance may anyone say "yes" to any question, comment, or phrase, at any time, in a 20 meter radius from SCP-xxxx. However, terms synonymous with "yes" do not trigger SCP-xxxx's anomalous properties.

Additionally, no interviews with SCP-xxxx are to include information from modern history due to SCP-xxxx's anomalous properties. No refined or raw materials from eras following the "Iron Age" should be introduced to SCP-xxxx's containment chamber, except for experimentation authorized by at least two Class 4 personnel.


SCP-xxxx has made requests for furnishings and other items in its cell.

Current requests:

  • One 32oz bottle of white vinegar (granted)
  • One weapon rack for swords and various weaponry of mahogany wood (pending approval)
  • One leather armchair (denied)
  • Three history books from 1850-2020 (denied)

Description: SCP-xxxx is an animated suit of medieval age knight armor, presumably male, and 6'5" in height, its age is currently unknown. It has been noted that SCP-xxxx has a light french accent, and will sometimes speak in the french language. However it is fully capable of communicating in English.

SCP-xxxx matches the style of a templar's suit of armor from the medieval ages estimated to be from the late 15th century. SCP-xxxx displays anomalous properties when in the presence of materials that it has not encountered. When SCP-xxxx is exposed to any new materials via direct eye contact. SCP-xxxx's composition will change, absorbing various elements of the material into the armor. These instances will improve the durability of SCP-xxxx, without changing its mass, how this occurs is currently unknown, as it breaks the laws of physics.

Currently, SCP-xxxx is composed of an unquantified combination of elements due to the inability to remove samples of SCP-xxxx for testing and analysis. SCP-xxxx's current durability is staggering, tests have shown SCP-xxxx has been able to withstand immense pressures including pressures up to 10,000 psi, without SCP-xxxx showing any signs of damage.

SCP-xxxx's second anomalous property is SCP-xxxx-1, a four (4) meter long sword with a hollow glass pommel. The hilt is engraved with the word "conquérant" or "Conqueror" in French. SCP-xxxx-1 seems to instantly appear in SCP-xxxx's hand when it enters its enraged state. Slow motion camera footage has shown that SCP-xxxx seems to draw SCP-xxxx-1 from a small pocket dimension, stowing it in the same pocket dimension after a subject expires.

When a subject says "yes" or challenges anyone to fight within a 20 meter radius from SCP-xxxx, SCP-xxxx will enter an enraged state. When SCP-xxxx enters its enraged state, a black viscous fluid spills from the eye slits in SCP-xxxx's helmet, which trickles down small rivets in the armor itself, down the length of the sword arm, which then drips into the hollow glass pommel of SCP-xxxx-1. When filled, SCP-xxxx-1 will turn bright red, due to sudden and extreme heat increments, measured at around 3012 degrees kelvin over half the temperature of our sun. SCP-xxxx will then kill its challenger, and has had a 100% lethality rate.

However, this action seems to cause immense physical stress on SCP-xxxx, who has been noted to sometimes collapse after a duel lasting longer than 6 minutes. SCP-xxxx will then regain its strength after approximately 58 minutes have passed. It should be noted however, that this does not mean that SCP-xxxx loses it's strength for 58 minutes after each kill, rather when the duel has ended, and there are no nearby combatants to be found.


To date, SCP-xxxx-1 has cut through:

  • A heavy solid steel containment door with a single stroke
  • An entire human body, vertically, with no errors in symmetry
  • Bullets
  • (DATA EXPUNGED)
  • 18 19 27 235 ███ D-class personnel
  • █ scientists
  • (DATA EXPUNGED)

Recovery: SCP-xxxx was contained by MTF Viper-Sigma-4 "Vineyard Stalkers" in (REDACTED), France. MTF Hotel-Sigma-4 received a tip-off that a nearby village, [REDACTED] had not made contact with anyone for two weeks. After investigating, MTF Viper-Sigma-4 found that the population of [REDACTED] had been butchered, reaching over ██ deaths. All bodies found appeared to have died clutching, or died next to a weapon of some kind, ranging from firearms to simple blunt melee weapons. SCP-xxxx was found patrolling the village grounds. MTF-Viper-Sigma-4's team leader instructed the team to drop their weapons as to not provoke the SCP, and to communicate peacefully, resulting in a successful capture with zero (0) casualties, and was transported to Site-18.

Experiment log ██

Experiment: xxxx-1

Subject: D-5778, age 46, male, rape, 2 counts of murder.

Preface: D-5778 was given one (1) standard police riot shield, and one (1) police baton, and was instructed to accept SCP-xxxx's challenge to a duel, and to attack and, if possible, kill SCP-xxxx.

Observation Notes: D-5778 enters the room and says "yes" to SCP-xxxx's challenge. SCP-xxxx draws SCP-xxxx-1 and charges at D-5778. D-5778 makes no move to attack SCP-xxxx until SCP-xxxx is approximately 2 feet away from the subject. D-5778 jumps to its left and swings the baton into the back of SCP-xxxx, which causes the baton to break in two, before sudden and instant combustion, D-5778 utters a string of expletives and tries to back away from SCP-xxxx. SCP-xxxx advances and swings SCP-xxxx-1 and cuts off D-5778's left arm, holding the police riot shield. SCP-xxxx cuts in a downward arc, straight through D-5778, cutting the subject symmetrically in half. Subject expired.

Experiment: xxxx-2

Subject: D-5635, age 34, male, assault, homicide

Preface: D-5635 was given a Colt m1911 pistol, with one (1) magazine containing seven (7) rounds of .45 ACP ammunition. D-5635 was instructed to accept SCP-xxxx's challenge to a duel, and to fire the weapon into SCP-xxxx until empty.

Observation Notes: D-5635 aims and fires 4 rounds at SCP-xxxx. SCP-xxxx takes out SCP-xxxx-1 at speeds recorded to be faster than light, and cuts through 3 of 4 bullets, the other bullet misses. SCP-xxxx swings SCP-xxxx-1 and cuts the pistol in half and stabs D-5635 directly through the heart. Subject expired.

Experiment: xxxx-3

Subject: SCP-2301

Preface: SCP-xxxx was transported to the manifestation area of SCP-2301, and was instructed to engage and "slay" the dragon, as a member of the current Beta team. This was to test SCP-xxxx's combat effectiveness and how well it fared against other SCPs.

Observation Notes: SCP-xxxx and Beta containment team respond to a manifestation event of SCP-2301 that demands a "Medieval cast". Upon arrival, SCP-xxxx engages combat with SCP-2301, which perceives it to be a medieval knight. SCP-xxxx manages to destroy the manifestation with no casualties to Beta team.

Addendum: SCP-xxxx has been barred from any further contact with SCP-███. However due to SCP-xxxx's state of low energy after a duel, it is prompted to participate in monthly D-class terminations, which has proved useful for keeping SCP-xxxx in its weakened state.1

Addendum xxxx.2 Due to SCP-xxxx's staggering combat capabilities, a formal request by Dr.██ for SCP-xxxx to attempt to destroy SCP-682 is pending review from 05 command has been granted by 05 command, and will commence on ██/██/████, recorded, and analyzed.
