Item #: SCP-#

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: [Paragraphs explaining the procedures]

Description: SCP-# is an anomalous hexapedal entity, ~12 meters in height and ~30 meters in length. SCP-# is fast and highly resistant to physical damage.

SCP-# is capable of digesting a wide variety of organic and inorganic materials. The entity is able to integrate the objects it has consumed into its own reference field [1]. SCP-# is responsible for a number of attacks on various Foundation facilities and destruction of several SCP Objects.

SCP-# displays broad infohazardous properties. The entity utilizes useful properties, physical characteristics, and anomalous effects of the objects and entities it has consumed to obscure its actions and abilities. Descriptions of SCP-# and the events involving or related to SCP-# are anomalously altered, often resulting in multiple accounts of the same events being inconsistent with each other. Direct encounters with SCP-# are accompanied by severe and persistent hallucinations. Features attributed to the entity have included controlled metamorphism, telepathy, probability manipulation, and multilocation.

It is not believed at this time that SCP-# is capable of physically altering itself or displaying arbitrary anomalous properties. All additional anomalous features attributed to the entity are believed to be a result of anomalous alteration of documents, perceptions, and memories.

Object Class: Euclid Keter

Special Containment Procedures: [Paragraphs explaining the procedures]

Description: SCP-# SCP-#-0 is the designation of six humaniform entities (SCP-#-1 SCP-#-0-1 through -6), all of whom claim to be John Albran, a construction worker from Glendale, Arizona.

While the SCP-# SCP-#-0 entities appear to be identical to each other, detailed physical examination and multiple interviews conducted with each entity has revealed a considerable number of minor differences. These include minor differences in bone structure; presence, absence, and location of scars; posture and gait; preferences in food, music, and other areas; political views; general knowledge of the outside world; knowledge of Glendale's history and geography; and beliefs about personal history of John Albran.

SCP-# SCP-#-0 are aware of and highly hostile towards each other. Each entity considers the others to be impostors, with various rationalizations provided for their existence and motives. While not homicidal, unrestricted encounters between the entities will often end up in physical altercations, as each entity attempts to force the others to recant their claim on the identity of John Albran.

Known information about John Albran, based on governmental records and interviews conducted with friends, coworkers, and family members, does not fully match any of the SCP-# SCP-#-0 entities. Attempts to locate the original iteration of John Albran have been unsuccessful.

Addendum #-1: Over the past six months, 2641 additional cases of individuals exhibiting similar phenomena have been recorded. Approximately 60% of the incidents have occurred within Glendale, Phoenix, or the surrounding areas. Isolated incidents have been recorded in other locations in Arizona and New Mexico. In all cases, six entities have been found to replace a previously-existing individual.

The SCP-# designation is hereby changed to denote the overall phenomenon. The six original entities are redesignated SCP-#-0. The Object Class of SCP-# is upgraded to Keter.
