Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: All active instances of SCP-XXXX are to be housed within standard Mild-Low Threat Entity Restriction Cells within Site-XX's Biological Containment Wing. In the event of new instances being discovered outside of Foundation-controlled land, Mobile Task Force Unit Nu-5 "Mimic Maulers" is to be dispatched to the location of said instances for the purpose of containment, delivery of amnestics to impacted parties, and media coverup operations, should any be required.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a previously unknown species of unknown origin. Instances are characterized by their striking resemblance to █████-brand device chargers. The "shell" of SCP-XXXX instances is comprised of a yet-undetermined material, resembling chitin found in typical arthropods, though with much higher durability and density. The "cable" end of the charger is comprised of sinew coated with a "skin" of flexible material, terminating in a bladed end similar in appearance to a standard phone charger plug. Upon coming across a suitable victim, instances of SCP-XXXX will surreptitiously "replace" the victim's device charger when out of line of sight, to avoid detection. When the victim is asleep or otherwise unaware, the instance will attack the victim using two prong-like "teeth" protruding from what would be the "adapter" end of the charger. Instances attack by piercing the flesh of the victim, typically aiming for low-resistance areas such as the abdomen or the base of the skull. Upon successfully "plugging in" to a victim, SCP-XXXX instances will fall into a state of dormancy, whereupon the "cable" end of the charger will wrap around the victim's body in an effort to remain stable and to render removal difficult. After this process, the SCP-XXXX instance will begin to feed upon the victim's blood, namely the iron found within human hemoglobin. Upon the victim's expiration, or after what it deems ample "feeding", instances of SCP-XXXX detach themselves from their victim and attempt to flee in search of new victims.

The reproductive process of SCP-XXXX is, as of yet, unknown. Due to the extremely hard nature of their shells, alongside the inclusion of metals in their exoskeletons, makes inspection of internal organs difficult. Further studies involving usage of SCP-914 on "rough" setting to aid in disassembly of SCP-XXXX instances has been proposed, awaiting approval.
