Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a glass room roughly 12 meters3 and 6 centimeters thick which is to be suspended in another room 30 meters3 in site-██. SCP-XXXX-1, SCP-XXXX-2, and SCP-XXXX-3 must be held by their strings by at least one live human (D-class personnel) at all times. SCP-XXXX-1, SCP-XXXX-2, and SCP-XXXX-3 are to never have their strings separated, if separated refer to Retrieval Method. Always have D-class personnel on standby in the case of SCP-XXXX getting bored with its current "holder". Only personnel of security clearance 3 or higher are permitted to enter SCP-XXXX security chamber.

Description: SCP-XXXX was found in ███████, ███████ on the sidewalk of the outskirts of the city. SCP-XXXX are three balloons attached to strings, with the actual balloon parts always touching(unless the strings are not being held together). If SCP-XXXX-2(green balloon) and SCP-XXXX-3(yellow balloon) are not being held together by a human they emit a gas that is unidentified but highly corrosive and poisonous. SCP-XXXX-1 is a red balloon which doesn't seem to release any gas when it's string is not held, but it does seem to cause hallucinations to people around it. When the strings are not being held together, the balloons release their gases and float as normal, but never get farther than 13 meters away from each other.

SCP-XXXX-1, SCP-XXXX-2, and SCP-XXXX-3 appear as if they are floating normally when their strings are not being held, but they slowly move, typically in the direction of a nearby human. Any attempt to tie the balloon strings together have all failed as the balloons themselves untie their strings. While the gases inside the balloons can not be confirmed, they are believed to be the gases they release when their strings are not held.

Attempts so far to touch the balloons directly have all resulted in death through poison. A touch of the balloon inserts the poison believed to be in the gas directly into the subject.

The "holder" of SCP-XXXX is the current person holding it. SCP-XXXX gets bored of its "holders" quickly and needs new ones, if new "holders" are not provided SCP-XXXX releases it's gases even if the old "holder" is holding it's strings. SCP-XXXX is seen to shake violently when it is getting bored of its current "holder"

The poison in SCP-XXXX gas is as of yet unidentified, but in all cases of the poison affecting a human the damage starts on the inside. The poison shuts down all major organs and proceeds to melt the subjects innards, this process happens quickly, although it varies, the subject usually dies within 2 minutes.

Retrieval Method: In the event of SCP-XXXX being separated and killing its "holder" security personnel equipped with gas masks and special security suits are to swiftly gather SCP-XXXX-1, SCP-XXXX-2, and SCP-XXXX-3 and hand all their strings to one person. That person is to hold them together until told otherwise or until SCP-XXXX gets bored of him.

Experiment-1: On 09/30/17 Dr.██████ Performs Experiment-1 specified at SCP-XXXX-1. D-75648 is sent into SCP-XXXX containment cell with the sole purpose of discovering any significance in SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX-2 and SCP-XXXX-3 were held by another D-class personnel so no gas is released. During the experiment D-75648 started to cower as SCP-XXXX-1 floated closer to him. After about an hour D-75648 started to murmur nonsensical words to himself, shortly after, he banged his head on the nearest wall until he knocked out. D-75648 was shown to have signs of psychological trauma and reported hallucinations.
