Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: A chain-link fence surrounds a 10km radius around SCP-XXXX under the guise of being an endangered wolf sanctuary. Foundation personnel, acting as rangers, will perform regular patrols to ensure no one attempts access. Base camps are set up at strategic points between 5-7km away from SCP-XXXX to effectively monitor activity. These camps are disguised as medieval micro-settlements and have modern research facilities underground. All personnel based at these camps are to be fitted for a range of clothing required for any MSK-Procedures detailed below. Any instances of SCP-XXXX-1 found approaching or drawing near any base camp results in immediate execution of Procedure MSK-Extract.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the village of Eternéeville situated in ███████ France. Buildings are primarily constructed from wood, brick, plaster, and stone and are primarily half-timbered. SCP-XXXX is constantly cloaked in a cloud of black smoke, originating from a large building, approximately 20x30 meters with three stories, making it the largest structure within SCP-XXXX. This building is heavily guarded at all times and is the primary location of SCP-XXXX-2.

SCP-XXXX has a population of approximately 180 residents, referred to as SCP-XXXX-1. These entities are male and female humanoids, the majority of which appear to be between the ages of 25 and 40 and wear an assortment of archaic clothing reminiscent of the medieval period. While a child form has yet to be observed, all entities maintain a youthful complexion while within the confines of SCP-XXXX. These entities are resistant to damage, but are not impervious, and react to pain normally. When beyond a certain range from SCP-XXXX, they exhibit signs of weariness and fatigue which increase over time.

Each instance of SCP-XXXX-1 has a specific role which includes expertise in one or more archaic skills such as blacksmithing, mining, masonry, and carpentry, to name a few. All instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are able to perform their role with incredible precision at an almost superhuman level of consistency.

SCP-XXXX-1 speak a simplified/truncated form of Normand Francian. Many exchanges between subjects may consist of nothing more than a back and forth of single words. Food within SCP-XXXX is plentiful and is also fresh, however their water may be contaminated, appearing green straight from the well. However, the entities drink it without any concern. In fact, every drink they consume has a green tint.

SCP-XXXX-1 appear hostile to anyone who enters SCP-XXXX when not dressed in the style of clothing resembling their own, or acting outside of their expectations. Any D-class that have entered the village attract the attention of SCP-XXXX-1 and are soon attacked, with any recording equipment on their person destroyed. D-class dressed in appropriate attire fair better, but if they display inappropriate mannerisms, say too many foreign words, or act "improper" in any other way, they are attacked and imprisoned. Interactions with SCP-XXXX-1 are therefore limited to MSK-Procedures.
