SCP-XXXX after neutralization

Item #: XXXX

Object Class: Safe Neutralized

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a standard containment unit. The unit is only to be accessed every four hours, for transfer of Class-D personnel and testing. All Class-D personnel assigned to SCP-XXXX-A are to be kept adequately sustained with food, water, and medicinal supplies required.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a black leather sofa of unknown design. There are no recognizable brands or manufacturers marks. SCP-XXXX is immune to defacing or damage of any type, with any graffiti disappearing over a short time, although tests of the leather that covers the chair identify it as regular treated leather.

If there are one or more people seated on SCP-XXXX, the last person to stand will be unable to remove themselves from SCP-XXXX. This subject is designated SCP-XXXX-1. A closer look at the place of contact between the subject and SCP-XXXX has shown the sofa and SCP-XXXX-1 are not bonded in any way, leaving the cause of a subject's inability to get up unknown.

Prolonged exposure to SCP-XXXX causes no serious physical harm, but instead affects the mind, producing a sense of tiredness and/or laziness. Thisd culminates with a wish to sit on SCP-XXXX. When the subject is seated on SCP-XXXX, the subject feels no desire to get up, nor any sense of panic when they discover their inability to move. Subjects who separate from SCP-XXXX have no lasting effects, but are influenced more strongly by the desire to rest on SCP-XXXX in future. It is unknown if separation from SCP-XXXX causes any harm, although testing seems to suggest that no harm is done with base separation. Experiments have shown that SCP-XXXX must always have at least one subject seated on it at all times.

Any non-sapient life placed upon SCP-XXXX is seemingly unaffected by its anomalous properties, but instead develops advanced brain cancer, which is always fatal within 24 hours.

Recovery: SCP-XXXX was discovered on May ██, 20██. It was discovered when a man was reported absent from his job by his workmates for several days in a row. The matter was dismissed as sick leave, until acquaintances of his found him sitting on SCP-XXXX in his living room. When the subject was unable to be moved, one of the other subjects accidentally sat on SCP-XXXX, upon which he found he was unable to move, and the previous subject died instantly1. Foundation personnel were alerted by other members of the local authorities, and arrived within a few hours. An MTF agent took the place of the officer currently seated on SCP-XXXX, and SCP-XXXX was transported to a secure location with the agent still seated on it.

Also found in the building was a stained picture of the deceased subject and a young girl. They appeared to be in a hospital ward, and the female subject appeared to be going through radiotherapy. Female subject was identified as Johanna Calloway, who died at age 7. Deceased subject was identified as Marcus Calloway, cousin to F███████ Calloway, a former Foundation researcher.

Several months after containment of SCP-XXXX, during an unrelated operation, field agents found two letters, one addressed to the deceased subject, and another addressed to an unknown recipiant. Both are recorded below.
