SCP-XXXX switching paper sheets

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is located on an isolated desk from Dr. Ursu's office from Site-34.. SCP-XXXX is located in a reinforced steel safe at Site-34. The sheet of paper containing SCP-XXXX is to not be put in contact with any other conventional material designed to be written/drawn on. In the scenario of SCP-XXXX not being present in its designated sheet, a thorough search of all nearby paper sheets is to be held. After SCP-XXXX's location has been disclosed, its new sheet is to be isolated.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a drawn humanoid stick figure, with a height of approximately 10 cm and a width of approximately 6 cm. The piece of paper it is currently drawn on will be referred to as SCP-XXXX-A. SCP-XXXX is a fully functional entity which possesses a level of intelligence similar with the one of an 8-year old human superior intelligence levels(see Incident I-XXXX-1) and capable of human-like movement within the boundaries of SCP-XXXX-A. SCP-XXXX also possesses the ability to travel between sheets. If another piece of paper comes into contact with SCP-XXXX-A, SCP-XXXX will be able to traverse between it and the new sheet. It should be noted that the entity has a tendency to locate and attempt to reach nearby paper sheets, with its interest increasing proportionally with the number of sheets present in the respective stack. It is unclear whether this is a desire to breach containment, or simply an affinity for paper.

SCP-XXXX was recovered by the Foundation from the ██████ Kindergarten in █████████, Romania on 03/05/2009. The principal had closed down the facility and called the authorities claiming a demonic entity was present in the main building. Proper amnestics were administered after the object's retrieval.

Despite the fact that SCP-XXXX displays no facial features, it is able to perceive visual stimuli, including distinguishing individuals, colors, shapes and even actions (waving at it will always result in it waving back).

Individuals are able to interact with SCP-XXXX by drawing on SCP-XXXX-A using a pencil (other drawing tools don't seem to have an effect). Drawing various objects onto the sheet will allow SCP-XXXX to come in contact with them. It seems that how the objects are used by SCP-XXXX depends on how the artist intended that object to be used (check Experiment Log XXXX.1 for concrete examples). It also seems objects cannot come to life onto the canvas, regardless of the individual's intention.

Although SCP-XXXX cannot perceive sound, communication with it can be established by handwriting on SCP-XXXX-A. SCP-XXXX was able to comprehend all world-recognized languages used so far, including the Cyrillic alphabet, but not fictional languages. SCP-XXXX is able to respond to "yes or no" questions by nodding/shaking his head, but it requires the individual drawing a series of capital letters for it to rearrange into words or phrases.

Using an eraser to remove previously drawn objects will render SCP-XXXX unable to interact with them. Erasing SCP-XXXX itself does not seem possible, but cutting/damaging a portion of paper containing a part of SCP-XXXX will cause it to display signs of pain. The entity is able to regenerate itself if there are any kind of carbon traces left from pencils on SCP-XXXX, by absorbing them into its own body.

Addendum XXXX.1: Further testing should be done in the future regarding SCP-XXXX's intelligence. Its capability of advanced communication and learning indicate that it may be able to do much more than play with drawn objects.

Addendum XXXX.2: Given the recent incident regarding SCP-XXXX, I am modifying its object class to Euclid and requesting increased security on the Containment Procedure.

Approval is granted to lock SCP-XXXX in a reinforced steel safe to prevent further containment breaches.
