Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is kept in a standard storage locker in Site-73. Removal for testing is permitted with written approval from any Senior Researcher assigned to SCP-XXXX.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a thin bracelet made of nickel plated with a layer of silver, a common variant of costume jewelry. The inside of SCP-XXXX is engraved with the phrase “Angela ♡ Grace”.

Its anomalous properties manifest when SCP-XXXX is worn by any object or entity, which need not necessarily be human, alive, or even organic; “worn” can be defined as SCP-XXXX completely encircling any part of its wearer. When SCP-XXXX is worn, any human attempting to attack its wearer by using only its body will be unable to complete the attack. This effect extends only to attacks made using parts of the human body, including hitting, kicking, and punching; attacks made via any other means will affect the wearer as normal. SCP-XXXX does not protect the wearer from the physical force of attacks subject to its effect; rather, these attacks will simply miss their intended target, manifest extremely weakly so as to fall short of reaching the target, or otherwise fail entirely to hit the wearer.

Discovery: SCP-XXXX’s anomalous properties were identified after police arrived at the scene of a reported shooting in an apartment complex in ███████, Texas. Officer █████, with the intention to confiscate SCP-XXXX for evidence, lifted it with one finger. Simultaneously, in response to an unrelated event, Officer █████ attempted to “high-five” another officer with his opposite hand, and subsequently found himself unable to do so after several attempts. After reporting this property to his station, SCP-XXXX entered the custody of the Unusual Incidents Unit; after a routine raid, the Foundation was able to identify and secure SCP-XXXX.

Addendum 1: The victim of the shooting was identified as Grace McClellan, who died within minutes of the event. At the time of death, Grace McClellan was wearing SCP-XXXX on her left wrist.1 The apartment in which the shooting occurred was rented under the name of Richard McClellan. Richard McClellan is currently awaiting trial for first degree murder and hate crime charges; the engraving on SCP-XXXX was cleared by the UIU to be used as evidence in his trial.

Addendum 2: The following note was retrieved from Grace McClellan’s body.

Grace, my star:

I know things are horrible now. This should keep you safe until we can be together.

When you wear it, please think of me, and know that my love for you is there whatever happens.

I know it’s not much, but it’s the best I can do until we get you out of there. I think I got it right, so just make sure not to take it off and you’ll be safe.

I love you, Gracie. We’ll be together soon. Your birthday’s this August, isn't it?

I’ll send you my love until then. Just a little while longer, and you won’t have to worry about your old man for another moment.

With all my love,
