Item #: SCP-####

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-####-1 is, due to size, not capable of being translocated to a containment centre. However, its location in the [DATA EXPUNGED] only one road, creating two choke points for oncoming vehicles and pedestrians. A minimum of two personnel are to be stationed at each designated choke point to turn back civilians. Security at the warehouse is to be light, but sufficient, with a minimum of four guards at any given moment, as it is believed that any attacks would occur on SCP-####-2, not -1. Any unauthorized persons approaching SCP-####-1 are to be ordered to leave on basis of federal mandate. Persisting persons are to be detained, searched, and thoroughly questioned. Persons not found to have malicious or deliberate intent are to be administered Class A amnesiacs. Persons with said intent are to be interrogated for potential affiliations and motives, followed by administration of Class B amnesiacs. Interior is to be secured by a minimum of eight guards, due to potential threat from interior attack. These guards are tasked to contain, not kill, and should be equipped each with a taser of high setting, rifles with sleeping darts, weighted net cannons, and standard weapons in case of breach. Any other course of action regarding security should be done only in emergency or by authorized personnel with level 4 clearance or higher.

SCP-####-2 is currently contained at Site-17, as it is not directly dangerous. SCP-####-2 is to be supplied with at least three #2 pencils and one ream of standard printer paper. No attempts are to be made to hinder SCP-####-2's ability to draw.

Description: SCP-####-1 was an apparently aged warehouse in the forest neighbouring the ███████ County in Oregon, USA. It was found derelict, and noted contents included worn drawing desks, two offices on the second floor with computers matching the ████████ ██████ 1997 model. SCP-####-1 also bore a sign on the front of the exterior, apparently neon; however, all but the letter "Z" had fallen off. Dust imprints were able to place the sign as having read "ZOMCO"; note that no such building has existed.

SCP-####-1 has, since its finding, updated itself. It features newer equipment inside; rather than mimicking an art studio, it has become a facility with means of containing the creatures that appear in it, which greatly aids in containment. However, this does cause a gradual growth of the building, a potential concern in the future. Subjects drawn by SCP-####-2 will appear in SCP-####-1 at a later point in time, with only certain drawings appearing repeatedly. What causes repeated appearances is currently unknown. Due to Incident ####-1, it is now believed that neither SCP-####-1, nor SCP-####-2, are dependent upon one another. Rather, it would seem that the two are utilizing the same interdimensional rift. Several of SCP-####-2's sketches have never appeared in the warehouse. Additionally, every creature to appear in the warehouse has been branded with an identifying mark, commonly a Greek letter. This has led to speculation by local staff that the rift was created by whatever happens to be on the other end of it, and that SCP-####-2 was present at the point of creation of the rift, causing it to be synchronized with the rift. If this is the explanation, then it is quite likely that the rift is out of the creator's control, as SCP-####-2 commonly disputes its time period. Refer to

SCP-####-2 is a human male, but with no behavioural characteristics known to date. Subject will respond to direct inquiry, but will not provide personal information aside from name and age. Four known names are used, and each produces significantly different sketches. Subject's drawings have consistently been sketched in a manner suggestive of documentation, accompanied by notes on the subject of the drawing. The subject appears to have dissociative personality disorder, most likely due to sensory overload from multiple locations, inconsistencies in input/output between dimensions, and other adverse side effects of its capabilities. The subject seems constantly compelled to document any creature it sees, and does not seem able to discern the mundane from the otherworldly. For example, during an experiment to test moving the subject through our world's effects on what it perceives through the rift, the subject spotted and avidly documented a raccoon, accurately detailing its traits, as well as security countermeasures to prevent what it described as a "complete and total hostile takeover by the voracious beast". None of the countermeasures have been taken. Of note is that the Subject could not have possibly observed many of the traits it noted; however, every noted trait was consistent with traits known of the species. It is believed that the subject operates through means beyond typical perception.

An interview was held with SCP-####-2 in attempts to understand the link between it and SCP-####-1. It is documented under Interview SCP-####-2a.

Addendum ####a:
The following is a list of manifestations which are known to occur within SCP-####-1:
-A segmented, mammalian creature measuring approximately 5 metres. It has eight limbs, each ending in a crude hand. The creature has dark blue fur, and is branded with the letter Alpha on its forhead. If confronted, floodlights should be employed to render the creature temporarily blind, followed by [DATA EXPUNGED- SECURITY DETAIL REFER TO FILE ####-ECHO] after harvesting the silk from the spinnerette, the body should be disposed of by inceneration.
-A feline creature of variable pattern and colour, with an air sac on its throat. The creature is branded with the letter Beta. It is capable of spitting venom of high toxicity, but will generally not respond to stationary objects. Personnel should remain still until someone behind the subject can line up a shot. Note: Do not shoot the head; failure to comply is reason for demotion and reassignment.
-A winged, mammalian creature of dark colouration and 3 metres in length. After evacuating female personnel, Gamma is to be herded into a crate, a supply of which is kept on-site, and transferred to Research Sector-71. Female personnel are not to be involved in its care when an uncastrated male is present in the flock.

Addendum ####b: At least one person who has been trained in the practises of all eight religions referenced in drawings done while subject went by the name of ███ is to be kept present near the warehouse. Only creations of the subject whilst under the name ████ or ████ should be contained; any other foreign subjects which appear are to be terminated. Assigned personnel are to be fully briefed in containment and termination procedures for each known manifestation.

Incident ####-A: After an attack on SCP-####-2 by a guard who had lost an acquaintance to one of the subject's drawings, the subject was comatose for 14 hours. In the lapsed time, two separate creatures manifested in SCP-####-1, neither of which had been documented by SCP-####-2. Upon regaining consciousness, the Subject created a drawing of each of the creatures, each accompanied by notes which aided in properly containing the creatures, and avoidance of one death on part of SCP-####-Eta, one of the two manifestations.

Addendum ####c: Personnel with a history of violence are no longer permitted access to SCP-####-2.

Interview SCP-####-2a:

Interviewed: SCP-####-2

Interviewer: Dr. Fletcher

Foreword: In an attempt to understand the relation of the two components of SCP-####, Dr. Fletcher interviewed SCP-####-2. At the time, Subject was working on a documentation.

<Begin Log, 14:45>

Dr. Fletcher: Hello, SCP-####-2.

Dr. Fletcher: [into microphone] Note lack of response from Subject. Subject is known to only respond to direct inquiry. However, as I will now demonstrate, it will only answer objectively. [to Subject] How are you today, SCP-####-2?

SCP-####-2: I am.

Dr. Fletcher: What is your name today?

SCP-####-2: ████, as always.

Dr. Fletcher: [into microphone] Note that Subject is unaware of its name changes. [to Subject] What are you drawing?

[At this point, Subject gestured forward; note that nothing was in front of Subject aside from a wall and its drawing utensils]

Dr. Fletcher: Why are you drawing it?

SCP-####-2: For documentation.

Dr. Fletcher: Why do they need to be documented?

SCP-####-2: I believe you've lost enough men to them to understand.

Dr. Fletcher: I don't believe I fully understand. Where do the creatures come from?

SCP-####-2: They made the creatures.

Dr. Fletcher: Could you explain who "they" are?

SCP-####-2: Get out.

<End log, 14:57>

Closing Statement: SCP-####-2 was uncooperative for the rest of the interview, insisting that Dr. Fletcher leave. When SCP-####-2 finished its drawing, the creature was depicted consuming the decapitated corpse of Dr. Fletcher. SCP-####-2 continues to be uncooperative with Dr. Fletcher since this interview. It is now speculated that the subject can, through an unknown mechanism, see the locations from which the creatures appear, and is not responsible for their existence. It is also believed that subject is, contrary to prior belief, capable of subjective though; however, subject appears incapable of conveying subjective thoughts properly.
