SCP-XXXX on retrieval site

rating: 0+x

Object Class: Safe

Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a concrete 16mX16mX16m room. No light of any kind is permitted to enter SCP-XXXX’s containment cell unless approved by level 3 personnel or higher. The humidity in SCP-XXXX's containment cell must be monitored at all times and must remain below 10%. All personnel permitted into SCP-XXXX’s containment cell are required to wear hazmat suits to contain body moisture unless requested by researchers for testing purposes.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a small metal and plastic box with hazard tape on the hatch on top, measuring at about 34X15X15cm. SCP-XXXX has 2 outward opening flaps that open when it detects a humidity or ~15% or higher. These flaps, when open, reveal a prism-like crystal of unknown substance. SCP-XXXX resembles the “Muon Trap” used in Ghostbusters (1984).

When powered, SCP-XXXX generates a radius of energy that increases the production of dopamine in mammals, making those affected happy. SCP-XXXX is powered by absorbing rainbows through it’s opening, though rainbows do not have to be visible to the human eye for SCP-XXXX to generate power. It’s unknown how SCP-XXXX absorbs rainbows or how it converts them into a power source, but it is theorized that the prism inside is responsible for SCP-XXXX’s anomolous effects as a purple glow is visible when operational.

It has been found the range of SCP-XXXX’s anomalous effect is entirely dependant on how much humidity and light it intakes. Since it is impossible to measure light illusions such as rainbows, it is unknown how much rainbow is required to generate a field. It is known that 16mX16mx16m is a minimum field radius on minimal power, but the foundation does not want to spend the resources required to test the full capabilities of SCP-XXXX.

There seems to be no sign of limitation to how large SCP-XXXX’s energy field can become or how strong its effects can get if provided enough light and humidity.

Researchers involved with testing SCP-XXXX are required to have mental health checkups bi-weekly.

Prolonged exposure to SCP-XXXX's energy field can cause many negative effects such as:

1. Severe Depression (see Addendum XXXX-A)
2. Addiction to the effects of SCP-XXXX (see test log XXXX-1)
3. Lethal amounts of dopamine being released into the system and bloodstream (see test log XXXX-2)

Addendum XXXX-A

SCP-XXXXs range of its field has not been accurately determined. When SCP-XXXX's happiness effect wears off after prolonged exposure, the sudden drop in dopamine levels causes those affected to suffer from severe and chronic depression, similar to the negative effects of cocaine. It was found that foundation staff members above and below SCP-XXXX's containment cell had been suffering these effects since its initial containment in ██/██/████. This suggests that the energy SCP-XXXX emits is diluted when going through walls.
