Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is <currently uncontained|self-containing>. Due to the proliferation of SCP-XXXX-1 instances, containment is currently unfeasible. Containment protocols focus on preventing the existence of SCP-XXXX from becoming known, and researching potential methods of complete containment.

A moderate quantity of SCP-XXXX-1 instances are to be contained in Site-XX's biological containment wing for research purposes. To prevent expiry, they are to be provided with a supplement of cerebra-spinal fluid. Sustenance requirements per instance can be viewed in supplementary document XXXX-bio. Excess SCP-XXXX-1 instances are to be incinerated.

Discovered SCP-XXXX-2 instances that become aware of their -1 instance are to be amneticized and discharged. Foundation web trawlers are to watch for and intercept any communications describing an entity similar to SCP-XXXX-1. MTF Psi-7 "Clever Name" will be dispatched to amneticize any civilians who have become aware of SCP-XXXX.

Site-XX's division-XXXX will continue to study XXXX-1 and XXXX-2 instances with the goal of countering the negative effects of XXXX-1 instances on XXXX-2 instances. At this time, known methods of causing XXXX-1 decoupling with biological agents are considered unacceptable, as the following widespread knowledge of SCP-XXXX would constitute a containment breach.

Description: SCP-XXXX-1 is a species of biological entities of unknown origin, superficially resembling a human eyeball. Through a currently unknown mechanism, instances can manipulate specific portions of their body structure, where these portions were previously indistinguishable from that of a human eyeball. Notably, this includes four (4) appendages on its undercarriage. These appendages are visually similar in texture and material to the rest of its body. They are jointed with two elbow-like points of motion. These appendages allow SCP-XXXX-1 instances to ambulate with a great deal of agency, with maximum recorded ground speeds reaching nineteen (19) kilometers per hour. Additionally, they are capable of leaping through the air at velocities of and reaching heights of .

SCP-XXXX-1 instances will seek out humans not already host to an instance of SCP-XXXX-1. How they ascertain this is unknown. While seeking a suitable host, they will utilize their small stature to avoid being spotted. This behavior, in part, has made it possible to suppress public knowledge of SCP-XXXX. Upon locating a potential host, -1 instances will wait until the target is isolated. Then, they will launch themselves at high velocity into the victims eye socket, rapidly injecting the host eye with an unknown substance and removing it from the socket. The replaced eye will dissolve over the course of 25-30 seconds. Humans host to an SCP-XXXX-1 instance are referred to as SCP-XXXX-2 instances.

New SCP-XXXX-2 instances will express pain and shock during this process, typically lasting 2-4 seconds until the SCP-XXXX-1 instance has completed its integration process. It will then emit an unknown chemical agent through the optic nerve, causing retrograde amnesia affecting on average the prior 3 minutes of memory.
