Location of SCP-XXXX during initial recovery.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is contained within a 10x10 meter airtight room outfitted with an entry chamber containing two (2) five (5) centimeter thick, aluminum plated security doors with a sealing failsafe. All surrounding walls of the cell are heavily padded with sound-absorbing acoustic panels.

No radio equipment is allowed within a thirty (30) meter radius of the cell, outside of a single radio for monitoring purposes. Anomalies in ambient radio noise within a thirty (30) radius are to be observed and reported directly to Level 3 personnel. Personnel left to monitor the entity should be given no longer than one (1) week shifts, and should undergo a psychiatric exam at the end of each week. Personnel tasked with monitoring SCP-XXXX should have no history of anxiety, depression, or suicidal thoughts, and should be relatively resilient to persuasion and manipulation.

Each corner of the room is equipped with a small circular speaker capable of noise levels up to 120 dB. Standard Foundation security cameras are mounted in two of these corners, opposite to each other to provide full coverage. If entry into SCP-XXXX's cell is required, two (2) or more personnel are to wear sound-muffling equipment upon entry, and white noise from the cell speakers are to be played at maximum tolerable levels. SCP-XXXX-1 instances are to be terminated immediately upon first forming within a one (1) meter radius of the anomaly.

Description: SCP-XXXX does not seem to have any physical appearance. However, within a five (5) meter radius of the epicenter, faint, illegible whispering and laughing can be heard. If any subject gets closer than five (5) meters of SCP-XXXX and is able to hear these whispers, the perceived sounds will gradually increase in intensity and legibility. Most legible speech consists of variations of the entity attempting to persuade any individual to approach it. SCP-XXXX will attempt to draw personnel closer through any verbal means necessary, using everything from argumentative reasoning to effectively mimicking the voices of loved ones. It is still unclear how SCP-XXXX is able to mimic the voices of an individual's loved ones without ever coming into contact with them.

Those who move within a one (1) meter radius of the anomaly, (designated XXXX-1) initially report feelings of euphoria and exhilaration, and begin experiencing rapid pupil dilation before the pupils of the individual's eyes seem to shrink and eventually disappear, seemingly losing eyesight. This process occurs very quickly over the course of a few seconds. Despite the appearance of blindness, subjects report being able to clearly see ███████. All attempts in which instances were asked to describe this sensation past abstract terms have been met with failure.

After the first viewing of ███████, instances will solely attempt to convince others to view it as they have. If individuals refuse, instances will often resort to violent means, forcefully moving personnel towards the epicenter of SCP-XXXX if physically possible. Instances seem to have no regard for, and even refuse previous needs, eventually dying of total organ failure due to a combination of starvation and dehydration after up to ██ days, depending on the initial physical health of the instance.
