SCP-XXXX after initial recovery.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a standard anomalous object containment vault in Site-19. SCP-XXXX is not to be removed from its containment or worn except for testing purposes.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a pair of gold plated medieval gauntlets with leather palms, each gauntlet 15cm long and 10cm wide, weighing exactly 1kg each, and inscribed with symbols that do not match the writing of any known civilization, written across the fingers. These symbols only manifest when worn by human beings, as non-human sapient entities or beings do not experience any anomalous effects from SCP-XXXX.

When worn, SCP-XXXX will attach itself and render the wearer's eyes blue (hereafter referred to as SCP-XXXX-1). SCP-XXXX-1 instances are extremely proficient in the fields of mathematics, architecture, biology, astronomy and occult/magic artifacts, some of which are in Foundation custody. SCP-XXXX-1 appears as a sapient, incorporeal entity, and claims to live inside of SCP-XXXX, seeking to pass on its knowledge and obtain more from new hosts. Upon removing SCP-XXXX, subjects claim SCP-XXXX-1 to have shared information about its home. The information given is reported in detail and without inconsistency across all those surveyed. SCP-XXXX-1 is friendly to all staff that encounter it, and enjoys conversations with staff on break. Topics of conversation often include history, philosophy and science.

SCP-XXXX’s prominent anomalous effect is its ability to obtain knowledge from hosts when worn. SCP-XXXX-1 is able to perfectly recount life history and otherwise unknowable information from D-class personnel who wore it; this process is apparently harmless, as hosts have shown to have complete control over their mental faculties and memories after removing SCP-XXXX. The capacity for information within SCP-XXXX has no known limit, and it is estimated that SCP-XXXX has had at least fifty (50) hosts during its time on Earth before its eventual recovery by the Foundation.

More information about SCP-XXXX-1, its origins and diplomatic mission can be found in interviews conducted by Dr. Borges and Dr. Parsons. (See Interview Log XXXX-170 and XXXX-620)


SCP-XXXX was discovered after a notorious English collector of ancient artifacts, William Brevinsky, was sighted purchasing an unrelated anomaly from an auction on occult objects. An embedded agent within the auction notified the Foundation, who performed sweeps on the auction and on Mr. Brevinsky's mansion, recovering SCP-XXXX and several other anomalies as well. Mr. Brevinsky claims that SCP-XXXX arrived in an unremarkable brown package with the stamp of a green tree on it. Investigations into SCP-XXXX and its possible connection to the Library or members of the Serpent's Hand is ongoing.

Addendum XXXX-1: Due to the friendly nature of SCP-XXXX-1 instances, the seemingly harmless nature of its anomalous effect on humans and possibility of further information gathering from the object, I am requesting that SCP-XXXX be allowed usage by several randomly selected civilians via a Foundation front company. - Dr. Borges

Request is pending approval.
