Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a locked containment vault at all times. Only psychologically trained individuals are allowed near the container of SCP-XXXX. Security guards are to change every two (2) hours, due to the nature of the object. In case of a break-in, the affected subject is to be terminated immediately, to avoid any killings due to the aggressiveness of the subject. Description: SCP-XXXX is a standard, wooden, music box, which makes a low buzzing noise whenever a someone is near it. Any person who hears the buzzing noise SCP-XXXX makes, will slowly begin to think of it as beautiful music, and will attempt to wind up the object. This will lead to the person seeing an entity, SCP-XXXX-1, which appears to be a humanoid shadow (see Interview), present whenever the subject is scared or dreaming. SCP-XXXX-1 will appear to be staring at the subject, making the subject paranoid and aggressive. Whenever the subject suddenly changes the field of view, he will see SCP-XXXX-1 staring at him. However, if the subject calms down, SCP-XXXX-1 will disappear. This has only happened to three (3) recorded subjects. The rest have all had a sudden stroke, one of the effects of SCP-XXXX-1.
SCP-XXXX-1 was discovered in the belongings of █████ ██████, in █████, Africa when he was found dead in his house. Autopsy showed he had had a stroke, which confirms he had come in contact with SCP-XXXX-1.
Until now, the only way of stopping the effects of SCP-XXXX is to keep away from the object. Soundproof containment vaults and earplugs have proven to be useless against the buzzing noise of SCP-XXXX.
