SCP-XXXX

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be stored in a Secure Containment Locker at Site-8. The approval of two Level 3 or higher researchers is required for any experiments involving SCP-XXXX.

Outside of testing, no persons are to come into physical contact with SCP-XXXX.D-class personnel slated for exposure to SCP-XXXX are to be implanted with sub-cranial remote explosives to allow for quick termination in the case of a containment breach.

Individuals who display one of the symbols associated with SCP-XXXX-A through -H anywhere on their person are to be regarded as hostile and engaged accordingly.

Depending on the overall situation and the importance of the current host of SCP-XXXX-A to -H, affected persons are to be either terminated on sight or subdued with as much force as required to ensure an instantaneous loss of consciousness. Former hosts of SCP-XXXX-A to -H are to undergo monthly psychological.

Personnel interacting with a host of SCP-XXXX-E are to wear sound-canceling headgear to prevent exposure to acoustic cognitohazard. When interacting with subjects affected by SCP-XXXX-H, great care is to be taken to prevent physical contact with the blood of affected persons.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an ax which generally resembles a model ax from the Egyptian Middle Kingdom Period (1981 –1802 B.C.). The bronze ax head is fitted to a wooden shaft with eight strips of a material which has been identified as human skin. The object has a length of 64 cm and weights 4.2 kg. Carbon dating estimates the object as over 7,000 years old, however, there are no signs of degradation or age.

SCP-XXXX was recovered from an abandoned excavation site located in the Brazilian rainforest near the spring of the ██████-River. The object was discovered amongst six decapitated human skeletons, all of which displayed severe blunt and piercing force trauma wounds near the cervical vertebrae. One of the skeletons, discovered holding the object in its right hand, was later identified as POI 4234-21.

The anomalous effects occur when a living human touches SCP-XXXX. Red smoke will emit from the shaft of the object, and one of eight different symbols will appear on the ax head2. These symbols will persist for the next 8-10 minutes before disappearing.

Test subjects report a feeling of restlessness and heightened aggression when close to the object in this state. Blood samples taken from the test subject show a significant increase in adrenaline. Test subjects that have either combat experiences or records of violent crimes report a sense of familiarity with the object.

Should any person touch SCP-XXXX for more than eight (8) seconds while a symbol is present on its surface, the same symbol will appear on the forehead of the person. At this time one of eight different entities designated SCP-XXXX-A to -H will take control over the body of the affected person.

Individuals under the control of SCP-XXXX-A to -H henceforth referred to as SCP-XXXXX-X show greatly increased physical strength and reaction speed, and are unable to perceive any type of pain. Instances of SCP-XXXX-X lack any additional form of anomalous protection, despite these changes, making them susceptible to standard Anti-personnel engagement protocols.

All instances of SCP-XXXX-X share a universal desire for the collection of human heads and will employ different strategies and behavior patterns in order to acquire them (see Addendum XXXX.1). Once instances of SCP-XXXXX-X is in possession of a human head they acquire, the head will rapidly shrink and undergo extensive rearrangement of their anatomy before disappearing.

If the current host of SCP-XXXX-A to -H either dies or becomes unconscious, the entities will lose their control over the host and the symbols on the host’s body will disappear. The symbol on SCP-XXXX will also disappear and the object will remain unresponsive for the next 8 hours. Subjects that regain their consciousness are generally able to partially recall the events that happened while they were under the control of SCP-XXXX-A to -H; with the exception of former hosts of SCP-XXXX-F.
