Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP- is to be contained in standard humanoid containment chamber. Once per day SCP- is to be feed with 2.5kg of raw meat. All test require approval of project head.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a humanoid that has variable appearances. The only recurring physical aspect is the absence of the mandible. Instead of blood, SCP-XXXX has a gas running through its vascular system. Wounding SCP-XXXX will allow this gas to escape, which quickly fills the surrounding air obscuring vision. SCP-XXXX is able to release this gas from its esophagus. Pregnant subjects expose to the gas will suffer miscarriages or the child will suffer extreme congenital defect. Along with this effect non-living organic material in contact with the gas will begin to dissolve at a rapid rate. This process seems to provide SCP-XXXX with nutrition. SCP- body spontaneously adapts to suit it surroundings. In containment it has returned to a normal human body plan which can be assumed to be its default appearance.

SCP-XXXX displays extreme fear of proximity to humans. It attempts to put as much distance between it self and any humans it encounters. During these periods of distress SCP-XXXX will attempt to vocalise but is hindered by the lack of a mandible. During these vocalisation the gas contained within it vascular system is ejected in large volumes. SCP-XXXX uses the obscuring properties of the gas to help in escaping. Attempts are being made to find out what SCP-XXXX is attempting to vocalise.

Upon inspection of SCP-XXXX containment unit Mapudungun text was found scratched into the wall. Transcription can be found below.

Help me, release me from my cursed form.
I was once whole.
The mist mother, cloven abomination.
It locked me in its embrace, pour it foul mist down my neck.
I felt it burn my flesh, I felt my jaw fall off.
My flesh became a vessel for her curse.
Please free me.
