SCP-2176's discovery was by an elderly couple, in ███████, ██████, during a visit to an abandoned city, audio log was lost during a containment breach,
the following transcript was taken from the interview;

Dr. █████: And then?

Debelle ████ : We saw it, it… *4 seconds of silence* it was face was the face of a little girl, on that, thing…

Dr. █████: But earlier you said it had a mask on.

Debelle ████ : It DID, i just…

*Debelle then sits with his head in her hands sobbing and refusing to speak*

Tissue samples of SCP-2176 reveal SCP-2176 is comprised of decomposing vines, leaves, tree bark, festering fruit, dirt, and small amount of severed animal tails and animal fur. The following picture was taken by Dmitri.


Class D personnel that received the samples later died of Hydrogen Sulphide poisoning, after further testing SCP-2176 was observed to release chlorine and concentrated hydrogen sulphide while in the presence of humans, the reason for this remains unknown.
It has been shown that SCP-2176 can not feel pain, or at least does not react to pain.
SCP-2176 kills by using thorn covered vines that protrude from it's upper abdomen grabbing the victim by it's limbs and pulling with great force until victim's limbs are dislocated, it will then pull the victim onto it's back and cover the victim with vines until unseen, the victim will then be what seems to be absorbed into SCP-2176 for a maximum amount of 72 hours, once absorbed, it will replace the porcelain mask with the victim's face, the face will begin to turn into porcelain and thicken.
Further testing revealed SCP-2176 has the ability to temporarily swap the porcelain mask with the face of any of it's victims, doing this also changes the sound emitted from SCP-2176, currently SCP-2176 has been recorded to have ███ different faces, which means ███ victims.
