Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a standard humanoid containment cell with no windows and standard surveillance devices, as well as a two-way communication device equipped with a voice modulator. It is to be given three balanced meals daily through a port installed into the entrance door.

SCP-XXXX must have access to the La Crosse Central High School Yearbook of 1969, photographs of Daniel Scott, Victoria Scott, Cecil Gradstone, and any photographs of Foundation staff subject to an SCP-XXXX-1 event. SCP-XXXX is required to study the people pictured in these items four times daily and is expected to recall all subjects via oral exam once a week. It has been permitted a pencil, notepad, and audio recording device to record information about the subjects in the photographs. Should it choose to record information in any of the aforementioned objects, the new information should be included in the study routine. Exam procedure and complete list of persons assumed to be affected by SCP-XXXX-1 can be found in Document-XXXX.24 and must be frequently updated.

All individuals listed in the LCCHS Yearbook and Document-XXXX.24 are to be tracked and monitored quarterly for a minimum of 12 hours. When a subject expires, naturally or otherwise, information relevant to them are permitted to be removed from SCP-XXXX's study routine and Document-XXXX.24.

SCP-XXXX is not to be administered amnestics.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a male (formerly known as "Henry Gradstone"), now approximately 66 years in age as of 5/14/18, whose anomalous properties trigger upon forgetting relevant information concerning interactions with other people (the event hereby classified as SCP-XXXX-1). "Interactions" are defined as moments with SCP-XXXX that changes how it behaves with others. If the interaction contains details including harm, kindness, humiliation, intimacy, or despair, then it should be treated as if the individual connected to the interaction could be subject to an SCP-XXXX-1 event.

SCP-XXXX-1 is an event that causes an individual, involved in an interaction with SCP-XXXX, to gradually melt. The process is slow, lasting for approximately 10 hours and beginning with fever sweats. After 3-4 hours of sweating, the individual's epidermis will liquefy, dripping off at the fingertips. At this point, the individual will die from organ failure within 1 hour. Observations of the SCP-XXXX-1 event inform that the victim experiences a great amount of discomfort and minimal amounts of pain.

Discovery: SCP-XXXX was acquired by Foundation operatives on 02/17/69 during an investigation into (then assumed unrelated) SCP-XXXX-1 events occurring in La Crosse, Wisconsin. SCP-XXXX had accompanied it's foster parents, Daniel and Victoria Scott, on an emergency visit in Franciscan Skemp Medical Center. Dennis Scott (brother of Daniel) had become subject to an SCP-XXXX-1 event and had been brought in when effects had intensified. Foundation operatives began applying Class-B amnestics to visiting family members and present hospital staff. However, when given to SCP-XXXX, it had resulted in 3 hospital staff casualties and 2 Foundation operative casualties, all from accelerated SCP-XXXX-1 events. Remaining operatives restrained SCP-XXXX and brought it into Foundation custody soon after. All traces of SCP-XXXX-1 events were removed.

Regarding of the disappearance of SCP-XXXX from it's family, another dosage of Class-B amnestics and a cover story was implemented that suggested SCP-XXXX had been missing for one month prior to Foundation interception. The story was relayed to the faculty of La Crosse Central High School, as well as local law enforcement (due to SCP-XXXX's poor attendance record, the cover was believable enough that no amnestics were needed).
