Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to remain inside a safe capable of being opened by remote control in a standard containment cell at Test Site Beta, it is strictly prohibited for the safe to be open at the same time as the door connecting the cell with the rest of the facilities. Any violation of the aforementioned specifications could result in a massive spread of SCP-XXXX-α.

Only Class-D personnel are allowed access to the interior of the room, as long as this action is justified by one of the scientists in charge of investigating the object. In order to facilitate monitoring of experiments and research carried out by scientific staff, it is recommended that there be at least four operational surveillance cameras inside the cell.

Description: The object consists of a polyester teddy in the shape of a spider. SCP-XXXX's body excluding limbs measures a total of 7cm x 17cm, as well as being completely white, except for its jaws and eyes. Unlike the rest of the object, both eyes of the item appear to be made entirely of plastic and measure 0.5cm x 0.5cm. SCP-XXXX's 8 legs are made of the same material as the rest of its body, are completely black, and measure 2.8cm x28cm.

All life forms that approach SCP-XXXX within an unspecified radius will experience a phenomenon designated SCP-XXXX-α. When a subject suffers from SCP-XXXX-α, they develop a constant paranoia that leads them to believe that SCP-XXXX does not stop harassing them with the intention of providing them with "a fate worse than death", which is why most patients they commit suicide within the first few weeks.

Depending on the time of exposure to the item, SCP-XXXX-α can last from one week to four months, although cases exceeding four months have also been reported. There is currently no known/existing therapy capable of curing a patient of SCP-XXXX-α. Furthermore, SCP-XXXX-α is incapable of affecting any subject as long as SCP-XXXX is locked in a hermetically sealed location and the subject is outside of it.
