Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: The area containing SCP-XXXX and its affective range is to be surrounded by a 3 by 1 meter thick wall of solid concrete. No civilian should be allowed within a 1km radius of the wall for the purpose of avoiding photographic or video recordings of SCP-XXXX. If a civilian is to come into the 1km radius they should be immediately brought in for personality test, followed by erasure of all memories of the encounter and sent home. If the civilian has failed the personality test they must be kept within the perimeter of the wall for an indefinite amount of time or until the affects of SCP-XXXX have subsided. If any instances of SCP-XXXX-1 try to leave the inside of the contained area they must be convinced to stay within the perimeter. If an instance of SCP-XXXX-1 does not not cooperate with staff or become violent security will be given full permission to fire at will upon it. At all times despite weather SCP-XXXX is surrounded by a thick fog extending 5km from the tower that makes up SCP-XXXX.

The wall containing SCP-XXXX must be checked once periodically every month for signs of damage or ersosion cause by SCP-XXXX or an instance of SCP-XXXX-1. if the wall is severely damaged at any point, that section of the wall must be replaced within 24 hours. during the removal and placing of a new section 10 security personnel must form a 10 meter perimeter around the section being replaced to ward off any aggressive instances of SCP-XXXX-1

Personnel are instructed to not speak or converse with instances of SCP-XXXX-1 at any time to avoid attachments to certain instances and are forbidden to give anything that the instance that asks for material possessions. Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are not permitted to speak or to see relatives.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a 15.5 meter tall steel Fire lookout tower placed on the top of a hill in the Mount Crawford forest, South Australia. Inside the room on top of SCP-XXXX are two instances of SCP-XXXX-2. 10.4 meters from the base of the tower is a 3 meter tall steel wire fence with barbed wire lining the top. On the east side of the fence is a steel gate with a steel chain and lock holding the gate closed. Any attempts to move past the fences perimeter have caused those to enter to die from a sudden lethal electrical shock of around 10 amps. Those killed by the shock will still suffer the affects of SCP-XXXX. If a mechanical device enters the perimeter of the fence all of its electrical energy will be completely drained.

SCP-XXXX-1 are the corpses of subjects reanimated by the lichen that grows on the corpses of said subjects. After 1 hour of being within a 3.6 kilometer radius of SCP-XXXX a subject will begin to feel extremely calm and become passive towards all living beings around them. After 4 hours the subject will cease all bodily functions over a duration of 1 minute but will remain conscious even if the brain stops functioning, they will only die once the heart stops beating. After 24 hours after death the body of the subject will rapidly decay within 2.4 hours until only the skeletal structure is left. 4 hours after the body decays a lichen of light green and yellow coloring will grow on the skeletal structure of the deceased subject until it resembles the physical structure of the subject before death. An Instance of SCP-XXXX-1 will retain all memories and the personality that it had before death. They will retain even the voice of the subject. Once reanimated SCP-XXXX-1 will become incredibly protective of all living organisms, going as far as to even destroy weapons such as a gun and will even try to dispose of hand sanitizers and soaps. depending on the subject that has become an instance of SCP-XXXX they can be incredibly varied on how they react to certain situations (more on this in the addendum).

SCP-XXXX-2 are similar to SCP-XXXX-1 but have visible physical differences to them. There are only 2 known instances of SCP-XXXX-2 that live in the room of SCP-XXXX. One is 180cm tall and vaguely male in appearance and the other being 140cm tall and vaguely female in appearance. They appear human in shape but with no facial feature, genitalia or toes. They have large branches growing from the temples of the head and are visually similar to an elks antlers. They act like regular fire spotters and use all the equipment correctly. whenever a subject dies within the perimeter of the fence surrounding SCP-XXXX, Bothe instances of SCP-XXXX-2 will come out of the tower and drag the corpse into the tower. It is unknown what happens to the corpses after entering the tower as it never seems to fill up.

Addendum XXXX.1: Discovery

SCP-XXXX was found on the 21/10/2018 in the Mount Crawford Forest in south Australia. It was found by an Australian hiker who had made several internet videos about his findings in the area and 2 blog posts. 2 days after his discovery the Foundation brought the man in, interviewed him and erased his memories of the findings and encounters. The foundation removed all recordings of SCP-XXXX from the internet and brought in anyone who had viewed the materials. 1 day after the man was brough in the foundation mobilized and constructed the wall and outposts around SCP-XXXX's range. Why it was not found before this date is unknown as the area was a popular hiking destination before the Foundation labeled the area as having deadly natural gas leakages
Below are the interviews with the original finder of SCP-XXXX and one instance of SCP-XXXX-1.

Interviewed: Mark Dalwood, Original finder of SCP-XXXX

Interviewer: Dr. Farwell, Site 11

Foreword: Interview with the finder of SCP-XXXX, site 11

Dr. Farwell: So… Mr Dalwood (long pause) so have said you have found what you call… Plant aliens? what exactly did you find in there?

Mark: Mate you would not believe it, they were all different like people but they were covered in some weird plant or sumthin.. i think.. they're aliens and their ship crashed thousands of years ago and are only now climbing out.

Dr. Farwell: And why do you think they're extra terrestrials? And was there anything else other than the beings themselves?

Mark: Well they're obviously aliens, aint nuthin else like em on earth. especially not here. and it was pretty foggy that day so i didn't find much other than a new fire tower up on the hill.
Dr. Farwell: (takes out sanitizing wipes and begins to wipe hands) So you found-
Mark: (suddenly very agitated) The hell do you think your doing! cmere.. (grabs the wipes out of Dr farwells hands and throws them against the wall) What did they ever do to you! (grabs the chair and throws it at Dr. Farwell)
Dr. Farwell: (Frightened and fast breathing) Sir! i'm going to need you to calm down or else we'll need to call security!
Mark: (walks around table towards Dr. Farwell and knocks him out with a punch to the side of the head) That's what you get you murderous bastard.
