Tiamat Elsen's Sandbox

Description: SCP-XXXX are taxnomically ambiguous1 warm-blooded organisms. The majority of SCP-XXXX are bipedal, owing to upright spinal columns and a horizontal neck-face interface. Instances of SCP-XXXX have an average weight of 45kg and height of 156cm in containment, however significant variation in mass, build and height have been noted. Individual instances subsist on a diet of carbohydrates and meat protein, however adverse reactions to certain foods have been noted, especially when initially introduced to the containment environment. It is unknown what types of food SCP-XXXX typically consume in their "native" environment or what such a location would look like. Instances almost universally possess forward-bending hindlimbs for locomation and forelimbs designed for grasping and deftly interacting with objects. SCP-XXXX are sensitive to light between 400-680nn, can detect audio from 20Hz to 20kHz wavelengths and are most comfortable in temperatures between 18 and 25°C

Instances of SCP-XXXX are especially dangerous due to their ability to learn and adeptly utilise objects otherwise solely designed for human use. Large communities2 have been noted to coordinate successful breach attempts, generate and contain fire, commandeer and effectively wield site weaponry and form large coherent social groups with organised hierarchies and societal positions. The leaders of such groups are often determined through physical hegemony, however particularly frail or even physically unfit instances have been known to take up leadership roles within their own communities. To date, SCP-XXXX have been responsible for eleven separate containment breaches, twenty two staff casualties and ninety seven injuries. Instances will generally utilise their forelimbs to bludgeon personnel or use objects within their vicinity to inflict lethal kinetic damage, including weapons carried by site security guards. Termination of SCP-XXXX can be carried out most efficiently through small-arms fire to their central mass, asphyxiation or the application of vesicants such as sulfur mustard3

SCP-XXXX-1 denotes a phenomenon affecting large population centres4 wherein several5 instances of SCP-XXXX will spontaneously and anomalously appear in the affected location. This generally results in civilian distress and subsequently several casualties, often wholly including the group of SCP-XXXX. To date, The Foundation has been unable to prevent or pre-emptively detect such events before they occur.

During initial containment most instances weigh upwards of 60kg and display unpredictable behavioural traits6. In some cases instances have proven to be cooperative with personnel, willingly coming into containment and displaying apparently positive reactions to being taken in. Others have frequently been intercepted while attacking civilians; such instances will generally continue a pattern of aggression into and during containment.
