Item #: SCP-XXXX


An instance of SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: The Poland branch of the Foundation is currently conducting a nation-wide hunt for SCP-XXXX. Civilians of high financial or social standing who have reported repeated larceny within a short timeframe are to be investigated for instances of SCP-XXXX in their proximity. Instances of SCP-XXXX are to be quickly tranquillised, caged and sent to Site-XX in Poland for containment. Instances of SCP-XXXX are held in reinforced steel cages, each one holding a separate instance. Instances of SCP-XXXX are not permitted to breed unless under strict testing conditions. No member of Foundation staff who is Level 3 or above should come in direct contact with a mature instance of SCP-XXXX.

If an instance of SCP-XXXX is found in the middle of a Burglary Event, it is to be tranquillized and caged and then transferred to Site-XX with its prey. The prey is to be interviewed for information on SCP-XXXX-1 and determined to have become an instance of SCP-XXXX-2 or not. Foundation agents are to investigate the construction of large statues of thrones in public areas. Individuals involved in the construction of these statues are to be questioned to determine if they are SCP-XXXX-2. Instances of SCP-XXXX-2 are to be contained with a standard humanoid containment cell and are to be interviewed every two days for changes in behaviour & views toward SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-1. Upon 2 weeks of emotional normalcy, they are to be given Class-C amnestics and permitted reparations. Former instances of SCP-XXXX-2 are to be closely monitored for 2 weeks after release for possible relapses.

MTF Lambda-4 (Birdwatchers) has been assigned to watch the borders of Poland for emigrating flocks of SCP-XXXX. These flocks are to be quickly tranquillized, contained and sent to Site-XX.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the collective designation for a subspecies of pica pica1. Instances of SCP-XXXX are heavier than other subspecies of pica pica, despite being of a similar size. A fully matured male instance of SCP-XXXX weighs between 300-350g while a fully matured female instance of SCP-XXXX weighs between 210-270g. Under dissection, it has been found that the nuclei of SCP-XXXX contain 23 pairs of chromosomes. Other than differences in plumage2, no other physiological differences to other pica pica subspecies have been found. SCP-XXXX has its only known population in Poland, which is estimated to be between 500 and 1000 in size. Currently, 217 instances of SCP-XXXX are contained.

Throughout its lifespan, an instance of SCP-XXXX follows similar patterns of feeding and mating to other pica pica species and will not exhibit any anomalous behaviours other than “Burglary Events.”

A Burglary Event is an anomalous process that is always attempted by instances of SCP-XXXX once they have finished maturing. The instance of SCP-XXXX will find its prey, a human being who is of high wealth or of high social standing, and will try to remain within 100m distance of its prey while the Burglary Event takes place. If the instance of SCP-XXXX stays further than 100m from its prey for more than 2 hours it will cease its current Burglary Event attempt and find new prey. The Burglary Event resolves as follows:

SCP-XXXX-2 is a collective designation for all individuals who have been the prey in a completed Burglary Event. SCP-XXXX-2 have no memory of their previous family members and friends, they isolate themselves for long periods of time and are aggressive towards individuals in positions of authority.
