Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept within their containment cell at all times. At least once a day, SCP-XXXX should be engaged with by Class-D personnel or Foundation Agents in order to prevent escalation of SCP-XXXX's cognitohazardous effects.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a humanoid entity bearing a resemblance to a female child around six to eight years old, measuring 110cm. SCP-XXXX possesses unusually large eye sockets but no eyes but possesses ordinary vision. SCP-XXXX has been kept in containment for 24 years, indicating that it does not visibly age. SCP-XXXX has been assessed to have the mental age of a four-year-old and regularly asks for 'play time'. Subjects in contact with SCP-XXXX for longer than 15 minutes will begin to struggle to maintain an internal monologue and form thoughts. As time passes, subjects will lose sensation on the right side of their body, and if left inside the chamber for around one hour, death becomes a certainty.

Through the use of an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) on subjects exposed to SCP-XXXX, the Foundation has concluded that SCP-XXXX is capable of bursting blood vessels across the left side of the subject's brain, causing progressive inability to use the main cognitive functions attributed to the left side of the brain. Subjects will struggle to perceive language, logic, or where their own body begins and ends. It is important to note that SCP-XXXX does not totally inhibit these functions, as the right-side of the brain is not affected by the anomalous effects of SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX must be engaged with at least once per day, and careful attention should be taken to ensure that it is kept entertained, as it has been shown that SCP-XXXX's anomalous effects are able to grow stronger the more stressed or upset SCP-XXXX becomes. As such, despite the risk, SCP-XXXX must be 'played' with regularly to avoid escalation of its' cognitohazardous effects.

Foreword: The following is an interview with SCP-XXXX, conducted by Dr. ████████ on the first day that SCP-XXXX was contained by the Foundation. From a camera, SCP-XXXX was observed to be pacing nervously from one side of the cell to the other before Dr. ████████ entered.
<Begin Log>

Dr. ████████: Hello. I understand you must be afraid, you have been brought here because
we have a few questions to ask you. What is your name?

SCP-XXXX: You look sad. What's wrong? Why aren't you happy? Is something the matter?

Dr. ████████: I-I'm not sure what you mean. I'm fine. What is your name?
SCP-XXXX: You're sad. Be happy! Please. I don't like sad people. What's your name?
Dr. ████████ W—.. My name? I'm Derek. What is -..
Dr. ████████ appears to stumble, and then blankly stares at SCP-XXXX. He catches himself on the wall using his right hand, and then stares at his own arm.
Dr. ████████: Something is no, I'm not sure where I am. The wall is me.
Dr. ████████'s arm drops down to his side, and he falls.*
SCP-XXXX: Are you happy now? You think too much. What's the matter? You're leaking red!
Dr. ████████ garbles in response, and then stares blankly at SCP-XXXX. Foundation Agents step in at this point and extract Dr. ████████ from the cell.

<End Log>

Closing Statement: It appears that SCP-XXXX's recent capture and stressed state, combined with Dr. ████████'s relative inexperience and anxiety caused SCP-XXXX's anomalous effects to manifest very suddenly. Dr. ████████ was placed into an MRI where it was concluded that various blood cells ruptured in his brain, and he suffered from a mild stroke whilst in the cell. Dr. ████████ has subsequently made a full recovery.
