Object Class: Safe Explained Protected Entity

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-002-EX is remanded to the custody of Dr. Williams, department head for Aging and Long-Term Studies, at Site-███. SCP-002-EX requires continuous care, and enrichment activities to improve quality of life are encouraged. All inquiries as to the current whereabouts of SCP-002-EX by foreign entities are to be directed to RAISA's historical records department, who will produce Addendum 002-EX-B. AGT and MOONSHOT researchers are permitted access to SCP-002-EX during standard operating hours.

Description: SCP-002-EX is a caucasian male with brown hair and brown eyes, standing 6'7" (170 cm) and weighing 73.2 kg (161 lbs) at the time of writing (Last updated 2026-05-29). A complete list of distinguishing tattoos can be found in Intake Manifest 002. He exhibits severe mental disabilities diagnosed by ALTSD as X-linked mental retardation with Marfanoid habitus, more commonly known as Lujan-Fryns Syndrome. He exhibits characteristic physical manifestations of Marfan Syndrome including long, slender fingers in conjunction with both shortened halluces and long second toes, as well as the typical long, gaunt face.

The psychiatric manifestations are difficult to positively identify as the level of intellectual disability is profound, with child aptitude testing placing SCP-002-EX between 5.5 and 5.7 standard deviations below the mean of the general population. What psychopathological symptoms have been identified include low frustration tolerance, lack of impulse control, and eating disorder. SCP-002-EX is largely incapable of more than the most basic forms of physical and verbal communication in indicating his wishes.

SCP-002-EX is estimated to be 523 years of age, having been born in or around 1497 in Wittenburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. How SCP-002-EX has grown to such advanced age is the subject of considerable study in a cooperative effort between ALTSD, Applied Genetic Technologies, and MOONSHOT Director Steven Griffin.

(1978-09-19 Note: See Addendum 002-EX-A for our leading theory as to Phillipp's astounding longevity. —SG)

SCP-002-EX's unnatural lifespan combined with his relative helplessness has led to the entity being apprehended by no less than ██ foreign governments over the last 150 years. Given our understanding of his longevity and his complete vulnerability if he were released, he has been designated Protected Entity status and, while it remains feasible, ALTSD will serve as his custodian.

Recovery: SCP-002-EX came to the attention of Foundation researchers in 1917 as embedded operatives within the US Justice Department's Bureau of Investigation relayed information on a potentially anomalous humanoid in German custody referred to as "ein unsterblicher Mann," an immortal man. It would be a further 58 years and ██ transfers between medical laboratories before MTF Iota-10 ("Damn Feds") were able to successfully exfiltrate the entity to Foundation custody in January of 1975.
