Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Re-containment Procedures: The whereabouts of SCP-XXXX are currently unknown. Recovery agents are to avoid physical contact if encountered. If recovered, SCP-XXXX is to be placed into a safe-box with cushioned padding to avoid damaging SCP-XXXX until relocation.

Personnel that have been diagnosed by a certified ophthalmologist with protanopia, achromatopsia and/or monochromacy are immune to SCP-XXXX-A may briefly handle it. Primary recovery of SCP-XXXX is to be accomplished via a tracked recovery drone with an opposable claw in order to avoid physical contact. SCP-XXXX is to be delivered to Site-23.

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 into complying with Foundation Personnel. Ballistic based weaponry (I.E. Handguns, assault rifles, etc.) are non-effective are strongly discouraged. Instances are to be eventually herded into modified refrigerated containers that hermetically sealed and airtight. Containers are to be monitored during transportation and delivered to Site-66.

Incineration of SCP-XXXX-B entities is reserved as a last resort if containment is deemed unfeasible.

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be stored in a designated locker with level-2 security clearance at Site-23’s1 containment block. A padlock is to installed to prevent unintended instances of SCP-XXXX-A. Containment chamber is to be constructed with reinforced concrete aggregate measuring 4.5 cm in thickness to sustain explosive damage. Two consecutive layers lead, and industrial grade aluminum are to be layered inside. The entrance is to be hermetically sealed only opened by a key card reader. No physical contact with SCP-XXXX is permitted under any circumstance. See Incident Log XXXX-1.

If an instance of SCP-XXXX-A occurs, the chamber is to be closed off to the rest of site and follow BLS-4 procedures. 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.

SCP-XXXX-B instances are to be contained in 3.5m by 3.5m airtight cells with the roof constructed from 2.0 cm of plexiglass for observation. A feeding pipe is to be angled at 85 degrees to prevent SCP-XXXX-B from climbing out. Instances are to be fed 0.5 kilograms of mulched dogfood and 0.4 liters of water weekly. Water quality is a non-factor.



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.

SCP-XXXX exhibits the following properties:

  • Personnel 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 and the severity of the effects. 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 accidently enter into 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 of holding SCP-XXXX have also noted a pulsation emitting from within it.
  • Subjects that hold SCP-XXXX become afflicted Stage 1 of SCP-XXXX-A. Testing has shown this to be able to affect more than one subject. Subjects with aforementioned resistance experience similar but overall less severe effects of 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 higher than 125 are also affected significantly disproportionately, with the fastest known onset of Stage 2 being 14.45 seconds with Dr.Loumn.

Stage 2: Violent seizures occur, with spasms intermitted 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 somniloquy, where the subconscious is manifested through SCP-XXXX-A.
  • Removing SCP-XXXX from the subject results in irreversible psychosis. Subjects are to be terminated 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.

  • Removing SCP-XXXX from the subject before termination at Stage 3 results with the subject expiring from irreversible neurological damage.
  • 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.
  • When all brain matter has been excreted, the subject finally expires. 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 a psionic discharge, causing individuals within approximately a 15-meter radius to suffer immediate cranial combustion and producing a similar psionic discharge. Psionic discharge is mitigated by lead and aluminum.

All 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 multichromatic sheen. Instances weigh roughly 37.2 kilograms to 48.42 kilograms depending on the amount of organic matter absorbed during manifestation. Movement is accomplished through a series of muscular contractions similar to that of the Animalia Mollusca.2 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 putrescent odor. This odor is currently believed to be predominately a by-product of fecal matter decaying after being absorbed by SCP-XXXX-B.

SCP-XXXX-B require sustenance to survive and will naturally revert back to a non-anomalous state after a period of a week unless it consumes an average of 964 calories via phagocytosis. All matter that absorbed by an instance SCP-XXXX-B will approximately increase its volume and weight respectively.

Instances of SCP-XXXX-B are initially in a docile state, 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.



Addendum

From 2017/03/11 through to 2017/11/26, Dr.Loumn was MIA before his remains were recovered in western Nevada, Las Vagas sewage system in a burial pyramid made from molded wood, organic components, and food packaging. Autopsies have shown severe nutritional and water deprivation. Evidence of cholera and typhoid are present.
