Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a reinforced airlocked isolation cell, with specialized silicone-laced concrete constructed walls. Interaction of SCP-XXXX is prohibited only in the events of feeding or containment breach. (See Addendum-2) SCP-XXXX must be doused in high-luminous light measuring of a recommended 127,500 lumen or more. Five high-grade specialized floodlights are to be wired and stationed within the cell, illuminating SCP-XXXX with the standard lumen amount.

Containment calls that on backup, an extra secondary auxiliary generator is to be directly wired to the cell of SCP-XXXX, in the event that power is lost within the facility. Secondary bulbs and floodlights are also to be readily available in the case of breakage and/or wear.

SCP-XXXX has the ability to disable electrical equipment in its vicinity via electrical discharge. On-Site personnel should be prepared to engage in Protocol-XXXX-S.a.S (See Addendum-2) in the event that SCP-XXXX shows signs of aggression and agitation/attempts to breach containment via electrostatic discharge.

Description: SCP-XXXX consist of two anomalies, SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2.

SCP-XXXX-1 is a dated, Middle-Ages based Iron Maiden torture device, approximately 2.8 meters tall and weighing in at 275 kilograms. The specimen is highly reactive to light and reacts differently when subjected to different changes of luminescence.

When SCP-XXXX-1 is subjected to [REDACTED] lumens or less, SCP-XXXX-1 will unlock and release SCP-XXXX-2, which will engage in a hunting-like state.

SCP-XXXX-2 is a black sentient mass which dons an aged, "Masonic Sun and Moon" based mask. The entity is completely composed of a semi-translucent slime-like substance, which exhibits highly-influential electrostatic properties. SCP-XXXX-2 has been recorded to be very reactive to different amounts of luminous flux, similarly with SCP-XXXX-1.

During its hunting state, if SCP-XXXX-2 enters a space subjected to a low amount of luminous flux, it will proceed to grow in volume at a rate of [REDACTED] cubic meters/sec. When the specimen has effectively grown to an efficient degree, it will proceed to use the volume within it to mimic the area of gloom, using it as a means of luring, incapacitating, and consuming prey1.

When SCP-XXXX-2 is present in dealing with the luring & incapacitation of prey, the entity possesses the ability to exhibit and undergo a multitude of anatomical and physical mutations to better suit its hunting situation. Recorded mutations consist of rapid growth and formation of different appendages and limbs, and the formation of facial organs and cavities. Further structural change observations are undergoing.

Addendum-1: Additional Behavioral Notes

SCP-XXXX-2 has been recently recorded to undergo [REDACTED] to produce a replica of SCP-XXXX-1. (referred to as SCP-XXXX-1-A) The replica is identical in appearance and nature to the original object but does not possess the age that SCP-XXXX-1 has undergone2. SCP-XXXX-2 has been recorded using SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-1-A replicas as transport between the models. First instance of SCP-XXXX-1-A was discovered during Incident-METRO-XXXX. (See Addendum-3)

Further studies shows that SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 are substantially vulnerable and weak to highly-illuminant, sudden flashes of light. (i.e, a camera flash) If SCP-XXXX-1 is submitted to a multitude of quick, high-luminous flux illuminations while SCP-XXXX-2 isn't present in SCP-XXXX-1, it will directly affect SCP-XXXX-2. The entity will enter an agitated state and display signs of physical pain, which will be followed up with a retreat back to SCP-XXXX-1. (INFORMATION USED IN: Addendum-2: Containment Protocol)

Addendum-2: Recontainment Protocol

Protocols for SCP-XXXX breach must be followed through the S.a.S (Split And Shine) plan. This includes the steps of locating SCP-XXXX-2 and distracting it with retaliation and force, while separate personnel locate SCP-XXXX-1 and use Foundation-made, specialized spotlights to periodically flash SCP-XXXX-1 with the standard 127,500 lux amounts of light.

SCP-XXXX-2, while in its retreating state, must be followed and led back to SCP-XXXX-1 to prevent the entity from causing further causality or destruction. Once SCP-XXXX-2 is present and docile within SCP-XXXX-1, repair of the object's containment chamber must be undergone to repair any structural damage and to rewire the cell completely of any damaged cables/faulty wiring.

SCP-XXXX must then be fed 6 hours after the initial breach and returned to the original meal schedule. While the repair and fixture of SCP-XXXX’s containment is undergoing, multiple search crews are ordered to search the facility to confirm and incinerate any instance of any SCP-XXXX-1-A Iron Maidens.

Foreword: The following video logs have been recovered from the corporate building of ██████ co. in the city of █████, ███████. Evidence was extracted from a cheap, commercial-sold handheld camera. Skips in the video are present due to the damaged condition of the data extracted and the camera & SD card showing signs of physical damage.
