Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be held inside a locked metal strongbox roughly .5m x .5m x .5m in dimensions on a table in a 2m x 2m x 3m holding cell within sector 25. The key to SCP-XXXX's strongbox will be placed alongside it on the table; if the key is ever found to be missing, immediate lockdown procedures for sector-25 must be initiated. At least one guard of Security Level 2 or higher must be positioned outside the locked door to SCP-XXXX's cell. When a member of Foundation personnel interacts with SCP-XXXX, they must be accompanied by at least one (1) guard of level 2 or higher. After each interaction or experimentation on SCP-XXXX or SCP-XXXX-1, involved Foundation personnel must be subject to immediate psychological screening.

Description: SCP-XXXX is antique circular tabletop mirror of the "Empire Style," approximately .3m x .1m x .1m in dimensions with the mirror itself being approximately .15m in diameter. It was retrieved from █████████, Virginia, where it had caused the deaths of █ individuals before entering Foundation custody. When not looking directly at SCP-XXXX's mirror, it appears obscured as if no light source shined on it; when an observer looks directly into SCP-XXXX's mirror, its anomalous properties will manifest. After testing, it was discovered that SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties do not manifest if an observer views a photograph or other image of SCP-XXXX. When a human looks at SCP-XXXX's mirror directly, an instance of SCP-XXXX-1 will invariably occur.

SCP-XXXX-1 is humanoid in shape and appears to the observer as an exact copy of themselves. However, SCP-XXXX-1 will not follow the patterns of the observer as a non-anomalous reflection would. Instead, SCP-XXXX-1 will appear to be eating a handheld object instantly recognizable to the observer, even if the object is partially obscured or entirely nondescript; there appears to be no limit to the number of possible items SCP-XXXX-1 is capable of consuming. Upon breaking their gaze from SCP-XXXX and by extension SCP-XXXX-1, the observer will be overcome with a compulsion to find the nearest instance of the item SCP-XXXX-1 was seen eating and consume it themselves. Besides for the aforementioned compulsion, subjects under the influence of SCP-XXXX retain full mental faculties, including being able to accurately recall record their encounter with SCP-XXXX-1, once their compulsion is either sated or resisted. Effects of SCP-XXXX last continuously until the observer's fetish is consumed or an amount of time elapses without consumption. This time has been recorded to be anywhere between five minutes and 48 hours. After their compulsion has ended, subject are recorded to have no loss of memory or mental faculties, able to easily recall the source of their compulsion, but remain unable to explain why that specific compulsion occurred beyond the rationale "I just had to eat it." To date, SCP-XXXX has caused 4 attempted security breaches, of which one was successful.

Addendum 1A SCP-XXXX can cause security breaches by instances of SCP-XXXX-1 being observed eating parts of other SCPs. The means by which SCP-XXXX-1 receives knowledge of the existence of other SCPs is currently unknown. The one security breach caused by SCP-XXXX occurred early in testing on ████-██-██ when SCP-XXXX-1 was observed to be eating part of SCP-1552, also located at site-25.

Addendum 1B The following is an incomplete list of all items SCP-XXXX-1 has been recorded to have consumed upon observation:

French fries, steel rebar, glass, a human hand form a Caucasian male, SCP-1552, wood shavings, roast beef cooked for 40 minutes at 180 Degrees celsius, the subject's older sister ███████, plastic, silk thread, boiling cobalt, coal, angel food cake, a █████ brand dictionary, Dr. [REDACTED], SCP-████, printer ink, horse hair, gunpowder, gold foil, turkey bacon, lentil stew, ██████ brand permanent markers, their subject's own blood, and the corpse of the bat species Desmodus rotundus that had expired no less than two weeks prior due to kidney failure.
