Item #: SCP-4931

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-4931-1 is held in a sterilized locker in the East Storage Wing of Site-19. Testing requires approval from onsite Level 4 personnel as well as oversight from at least one member of Mobile Task Force Beta-7.

SCP-4931-2 through -6 are considered T-class chemical hazards and are not to be extracted outside of approved testing. Samples should be stored or disposed of via special procedures dictated below.

Extraction subjects should be selected from a pool of D-class who have cleared psychological examination 4931-Theta. Injection subjects do not necessitate this requirement.

Description: SCP-4931 is a Type-2 compound anomaly, consisting of an altered mechanical object and the chemical products of its operation.

SCP-4931-1 is an anomalously-modified handheld device with a similar structure to a medical jet injector. Extending from the handle is an apparatus with a prominent surgical needle, approximately 1.33 mm in length and 47 µm in diameter. This setup allows for the extraction and/or injection of SCP-4931-2 through -6, which are collected in a 50 mL vial atop SCP-4931-1. This vial is non-anomalous and can be removed and replaced without incident.


Extracted samples of SCP-4931-2, -3, and -4, diluted and vacuum-sealed to reduce reactivity.

SCP-4931-1 was recovered from the site of an explosion at an apartment complex in Sitka, Alaska. On May 25th, 2018, the local police force reported an unexplained detonation near the Noatak River. By the time fire responders arrived from the nearby Juneau station, the building had collapsed. The Foundation Automated Radio Scanner Alert System (FARSA), deployed earlier that month, notified Mobile Task Force Beta-7 (“Maz Hatters”). A response team quarantined the site with assistance from MTF Iota-10 (“Damn Feds”) and recovered the item, which was declared Safe (later updated to Euclid due to the containment difficulties of SCP-4931-2–6) and transported to Site-19.

The handle of SCP-4931-1 has six colored button options that can be selected before use. SCP-4931-2 through -6 are the six distinct liquids that can be acquired when a color is chosen and SCP-4931-1 is operated on the brain of a healthy adult Homo sapiens.

Designation Description Effects of Extraction Effects of Injection Special Procedures for Disposal/Storage
SCP-4931-2 Aqueous solution, translucent purple color, evaporates at a very low boiling point (estimated 20.5ºC). Gaseous form, if inhaled, has proportional properties to injection- 130 mL injection is approximately equivalent to 125700 mm3 inhalation. Notable decrease in stress levels and adrenaline production. Audiovisual hallucinations, hyperventilation, paranoia and occasional violent outbursts. Sealed vial in refrigerated storage container. Least reactive of extractions; safe under correct conditions.
SCP-4931-3 Very cold, viscous, blue fluid, faint scent of salt and ammonia. Contains traces of lithium. Dangerous to handle due to extremely low temperature; cannot be heated, as exposure to temperatures above -2.3ºC may cause combustion or inexplicably rapid radioactive decay. Increased productivity, notable improvements in blood pressure, skin condition, etc. Average reaction includes sudden tendency to self-harm, exhaustion, and loss of vocal capabilities. Samples are to be kept in Site-19 deep cold storage unit, or destroyed in a controlled, radiation-shielded environment.
SCP-4931-4 Hot crimson liquor, containing toxic amounts of alcohol and rapidly-fusing atoms of hydrogen with significant electron activity. Further description unavailable. [NO DATA AVAILABLE] [NO DATA AVAILABLE]1 Extraction of SCP-4931-4 samples has been banned indefinitely by order of the Site-19 Director and O5 Council Decision 11-2 (08/23/2018).
SCP-4931-5 Yellow liquid, contains traces of dopamine and phenylethylamine. Safe in small quantities, but highly acidic, becoming corrosive when stagnant. Reacts violently with SCP-4931-3 and -4, annihilating the other until one substance remains. Notably paler skin, accelerated production of ribonucleic acids in nervous system, and Initial injection effects are nearly identical to those of SCP-4931-3 extraction. After around twelve minutes, body temperature of the subject will begin to rise rapidly until reaching extreme hyperthermia (around 45°C), causing mass cell death and cessation of major bodily functions. The subject generally expires after fifteen minutes, when the nervous system disintegrates. Should not be stored in single units larger than 0.5 L, and samples should be rotated into new containers every twenty-five days.
SCP-4931-6 Green-grey basic fluid (pH 13), extremely corrosive when exposed to glass but otherwise behaves as would be expected. Appears to emit a pheromone trail that attracts humans to it. No notable biological alterations Increased oil production in dermis, resulting in acne. Psychological screening indicates higher altruistic behaviors. Dilation of pupils, altered brain chemistry including production of oxytocin. Should be stored in plastic containers and sealed into a password-locked storage unit.
