Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: No physical contact with SCP-XXXX is permitted. Personnel diagnosed by a certified ophthalmologist with protanopia, achromatopsia and/or monochromatic are however exempt from this restriction.

SCP-XXXX is to be stored in a designated locker with level-2 security clearance at Site-23’s containment block. Containment chamber is to be retrofitted with reinforced concrete aggregate measuring 8.5 cm in thickness to sustain explosive damage. Two 2.5 cm layers of lead, and 1.0 cm of industrial grade aluminum are to be layered inside interior of the reinforced walls. The containment chamber is to be hermetically sealed off from the rest of the site for when an SCP-XXXX-B entity manifests.

If the transit of SCP-XXXX is ever deemed necessary, the task should be accomplished via a tracked recovery drone with an extendable gripping vice. SCP-XXXX is to be then placed into a safe-box with cushioned padding.

If an instance of SCP-XXXX-A occurs, the containment chamber is to be locked off from rest of the site and BLS-4 emergency procedures will be enacted. Once an instance of SCP-XXXX-B has manifested, it will be taken out of containment following re-containment procedures and delivered to Site-66.

Instances of SCP-XXXX-B are to be contained following BLS-4 protocols. Stun batons and tasers have proven effective for persuading SCP-XXXX-B entities into complying with Foundation Personnel. Ballistic based weaponry (I.E. Handguns, assault rifles, etc.) are non-effective. Instances are to be herded into modified refrigerated containers that are hermetically sealed.

SCP-XXXX-B instances are to be eventually contained in airtight humanoid containment cells with the roof constructed from 2.0 cm of plexiglass for observation. A pressurized feeding pipe is to be angled at 85 degrees. Instances are to be fed 0.5 kilograms of mulched dogfood and 0.4 liters of water bi-weekly. Water quality is a non-factor.

As a method of absolute last resort, termination of an SCP-XXXX-B entity via chemical sprayer using a 10:1 mixture ratio of either KOH or NaHCO3 with H2O is authorized if public health is sufficiently jeopardized and with at least acting level 4 approval.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an amethyst quartz square pyramid with a base edge and height of 5 cm with a volume of 41.7 cubic centimeters. Etched across the surface of the object; numerous alchemical and geometric iconography can be seen.

SCP-XXXX exhibits the following properties:

  • Subjects with protanopia, achromatopsia and monochromacy have a recorded 75% resistance rate from SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-A’s anomalous influence. Resistance is determined by the ability to perform physical or mental tasks while holding SCP-XXXX. Complaints of chronic migraines lasting up to a period of three to five days after contact with SCP-XXXX are considered common.
  • SCP-XXXX has been observed to "lure" subjects towards it, manifesting as curiosity within subjects. This was discovered when Site-19 staff would accidentally enter into the SCP-XXXX lab unintentionally. When informed of the phenomena, subjects can ignore SCP-XXXX's aura of attraction.
  • SCP-XXXX has been described as unusually warm and adhesive to the touch. Personnel holding SCP-XXXX have also noted a pulsation emitting from within it.
  • Subjects that hold SCP-XXXX become afflicted with Stage 1 of SCP-XXXX-A. Testing has shown this to be able to affect more than one subject. Subjects with aforementioned resistance are never afflicted with SCP-XXXX-A.

SCP-XXXX-A occurs when a subject physically contacts SCP-XXXX. This process occurs in three stages.
Stage 1
  • After initial contact, the subject will gradually become compelled to cease all prior tasks and fixate on SCP-XXXX. Reports of vertigo, disorientation, lowered blood pressure and drowsiness are common. Removing SCP-XXXX from the user’s hold before the onset of Stage 2 will remove the effects of SCP-XXXX-A. The subject will return to a normative state afterward. Recorded side effects include nausea, drowsiness, migraines, and irritation of the eyes. These effects subside after 15 to 20 minutes.
  • During this time, subjects are capable of responding to questions given to them, though will always relate their answer in some way to SCP-XXXX. Common adjectives used when referring to SCP-XXXX include "Mild", "Soothing" and "Mesmerizing".
  • The onset of Stage 2 is approximately 30 - 75 seconds. This process is accelerated by a variety of factors including but not limited to: Depression, ADHD, Bipolar II disorder, Schizophrenia and Intermittent Explosive Disorders. Subjects with IQ scores generally higher than 125 are affected disproportionately with an accelerated rate of onset.
Stage 2
  • Violent seizures occur, with spasms intermittent by pitched noises of distress. SCP-XXXX is observed to cauterize onto the subject's skin, with recorded temperatures reaching 371.111 Celsius or 700 degrees Fahrenheit. SCP-XXXX will burn away clothing and protective gear in order to attach itself to the subject. SCP-XXXX returns to room temperature after subject's skin has been seared to SCP-XXXX.
  • Subjects will speak incoherently, often punctuating statements with audible shrieks and gurgling. Despite this, subjects are still able to answer questions directed to them often divulging vivid, personal and confidential details. Throughout Stage 2 and Stage 3, Subjects are able to answer questions directed to them until eventual termination. It is theorized that the Subjects are actually in an anomalous awaken state of soliloquy, where the subconscious is manifested through SCP-XXXX-A.
  • Removing SCP-XXXX from the subject results in irreversible psychosis. Subjects are to be euthanized afterward via lethal injection.
Stage 3
  • Subject's brain matter rapidly deteriorates in a manner similar to Alzheimer's. Deterioration continues until all brain tissue has liquefied to a viscus like substance similar to that of syrup. Liquidized brain matter will excrete from ear canals, eye sockets, and nasal passages and begin to coagulate at the base of the subject.
  • Involuntary bowel and urinary contractions also occur, currently theorized to be the result of degradation of the subject's mental faculties. This often results in bloodied diarrhea and urination, before finally resulting in fatal rectal prolapse.
  • Removing SCP-XXXX from the subject before termination at Stage 3 results with the subject expiring from irreversible neurological damage.
  • When all brain matter has been excreted, the subject will finally expires. The subject's cranial cavity will then spontaneously combust, presumably because of a build-up of heat produced by SCP-XXXX-A. Combustion will also produce an anomalous discharge, causing individuals within approximately a 15-meter radius to suffer immediate cranial combustion and produce a similar psionic discharge. Discharge is mitigated by lead and aluminum.
All affected organic matter will begin congealing into multiple instances of SCP-XXXX-B.

SCP-XXXX-B (referred offhandedly as "Bogtards" by personnel) is a congealed mass of human blood, fecal, various muscle, digestive intestines and skin tissues and predominantly brain matter with a chromatic sheen. Instances weigh roughly 37.2 kilograms to 48.42 kilograms depending on the amount of organic matter absorbed during manifestation. SCP-XXXX-B specimens also secrete a mixed layer of mucus and gastric acid in order to prevent overall tissue damage.

Movement is accomplished by utilizing its mucus in combination with a series of muscular contractions similar to that of the Animalia Mollusca.1 Movement is similarly slow, with only a recorded top speed of 2.5 kilometers per hour. (For comparison, the average human walks about 5 kilometers per hour.)

Roughly 38 hours after formation, the organic compounds of SCP-XXXX-B subjects begin to decay, releasing a strong putrid odor. This odor is currently believed to be predominately a by-product of fecal matter decaying after being absorbed by SCP-XXXX-B along with other materials accidentally absorbed. Samples gathered from currently contained entities show multiple non-anomalous strains of diseases common to unfiltered wastes which are accelerated by SCP-XXXX-B's unsanitary nature.

SCP-XXXX-B require sustenance to survive and will naturally revert back to a non-anomalous state after a period of approximately 72 hours unless it's feed an average of 964 calories via enveloping food particles. All matter that was absorbed by an instance SCP-XXXX-B will approximately increase its volume and weight respectively. After becoming more than twice normal volume, SCP-XXXX-B will split apart and form a new instance of SCP-XXXX-B.

All instances of SCP-XXXX-B are initially docile, preferring to retreat from highly visible areas. Uncontained instances of SCP-XXXX-B will seek out enclosed humid environments, most commonly sewer infrastructure, to mask its strong odor. SCP-XXXX-B entities will form rudimentary communities or "dens" with population sizes averaging 9 to 69. Globally there are 15 confirmed dens located within various urban landscapes. A projected growth rate of 3 new communities per year has been estimated.

1995/03/10, Agent Silvia Enderson and Agent Jefferson Brinkmann of MTF Epsilon-6 (Village Idiots) were dispatched to investigate the disappearance of the village residents near East Africa.

During investigations, 12 instances of SCP-XXXX-B were eventually discovered. Village was subsequently declared uninhabitable and quarantined. A cover story was developed, saying that the village had been contaminated by a chemical refuge from a local factory several kilometers away.

The following is recovered from the field journal that was in the possession of Issac Eeir, who at the time was designated as POI-XXXX shortly after. Relevant entries are displayed in this record.

Closing Statement: During recovery and clean up by MTF Beta-7, a silver locket was discovered amongst the organic debris located in the office of the town hall. Inside is a photograph depicting a woman identified Maria Eeir standing alongside former POI-XXXX-1 Issac Eeir. Records show the two were married for thirty-one years prior.

From 1995/03/03 through to 1995/09/27, Issac Eeir was reported missing before his remains were found in Eastern Africa, Akabo along the Pilbor river in a burial pyramid made from decomposing wood, organic components, and food packaging. Autopsies have shown severe nutritional and water deprivation. Evidence of cholera and typhoid were present in the body at time of recovery.
