SCP-XXXX prior to containment, outside a suburban home in ██████████, WA.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in an indoor garden kept well maintained and free of litter.

Only D-Class personnel are to directly tend the garden. The garden is to be blanketed with light at all times. In addition, D-Class personnel are to maintain a secondary garden neighboring SCP-XXXX's primary garden chamber, meeting the same standards.

As of Incident-XXXX-1, SCP-XXXX is to be contained in an outdoor garden at Area-██. D-Class personnel are to tend to the garden and nearby secondary gardens. Other personnel are to observe a 55 m distance from the garden currently occupied by SCP-XXXX.

All personnel are to be checked for potential litter sources prior to their entry into SCP-XXXX containment, including lint checks, shoe sole examinations, and removal of loose items to prevent introducing any contaminant to the garden.

No rescues are to be attempted to recover any personnel lost to SCP-XXXX.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a stone statue in moderate disrepair reaching 0.6 m in height. The object is built to resemble a human, though its demographics (including age, sex, and race) are indeterminate. The eyes are empty of detail and the resembles a nightgown or dress.

Red stains coat SCP-XXXX in various locations, most notably around the mouth, with initial testing revealing the presence of human blood.

When undisturbed within a garden, SCP-XXXX is immobile and expresses no obvious anomalous properties. However, if removed from its garden SCP-XXXX will eventually vanish even if under direct observation. Within five hours it will reappear at the nearest suitable garden. Distance from multiple gardens being equal, SCP-XXXX shows a preference for modest, suburban neighborhood style gardens.

The danger from SCP-XXXX is encountered when a human (referred to hereafter as "subject") drops an unwelcome item ("litters") within its inhabited garden. The instant the offending item lands SCP-XXXX vanishes, and the offending subject vanishes along with it.

Dropped items resulting in SCP-XXXX response:

• Plastic wrappers
• Paper bag
• Paper cup
• Cans and bottles
• Cigarette butts
• A CD copy of Barry Manilow's 1975 Album "Tryin' to Get the Feeling"
• SCP-████-█
• A pen
• Discarded clothing items
• Paint

Dropped items failing to produce a SCP-XXXX response:

• Leaves and mulch
• Spade
• Stones
• Garden fencing
• Spitting
• Fecal matter (human and dog tested)
• Blood (human, chicken, and pig tested)
• Body tissue (human ear and dead rat tested)
• Human corpse (clothed or unclothed)

Subjects taken by SCP-XXXX are deposited into an alternate dimension designated SCP-XXXX-Prime: a dark, seemingly endless garden filled with shrubs and heavy fog. Equipment carried by subjects is able to transmit and receive audio and video information with standard reality. However, all equipment in SCP-XXXX-Prime will stop functioning when SCP-XXXX has resolved its active state.

Subjects return to standard reality when they recollect the offending item. The offending item is the only object a subject can interact with from standard reality, as the object exists in both realities simultaneously.

SCP-XXXX enters SCP-XXXX-Prime simultaneously with its targeted subject. When inside the alternate dimension, SCP-XXXX enters an active state, moving along the ground at a rate up to 1.4 m/s. SCP-XXXX follows the path of least resistance toward the subject and will continue pursuit regardless of distance or line of sight.

While active, SCP-XXXX produces distorted music. [See Survey-XXXX-2 for audio sample.]

Once approximately within 1 meter, SCP-XXXX will throw itself at the subject at high speed. When physical contact is made [DATA EXPUNGED]. This invariably results in the subject's death.

Upon either the subject's death or escape, SCP-XXXX will reappear in the garden within five hours. If the garden is destroyed, SCP-XXXX will materialize at the nearest suitable garden. On occasion, miscellaneous body parts and blood from lost subjects will appear in the vicinity they initially vanished from. No method has been successful in predicting which body parts will appear, or when.
