Item #: SCP-####

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: The area surrounding SCP-#### has been cordoned off under the guise of military weapons testing. Any person attempting to enter SCP-####'s containment area is to be interrogated as to their purpose and administered amnestics. All instances of SCP-####-1 attempting to leave SCP-#### are to be detained in a standard low-risk humanoid containment suite at Provisional Containment Site-26.

Due to lack of results, all interviews and other interactions with SCP-####-1 instances have been postponed. Direct interaction within SCP-####-2a is currently pending approval by the Site Director.

Description: SCP-#### is a rectangular concrete building on the outskirts of Upper Sandusky, OH, measuring 11 stories high. SCP-#### was discovered during a monthly sweep of the surrounding area conducted due to unrelated past anomalous activity. The building appears to have been prefabricated by floor and assembled on its current site at any point between ██/██/1997 and ██/██/1997. SCP-#### contains 12 floors, including the roof. The first 10 floors are exclusively dominated by complex apparatuses determined to be of extraterrestrial origin. While large sections of machinery are currently beyond Foundation capabilities to reproduce, cursory examination reveals life support systems designed for human or human-analogous organisms, apparently capable of extending life indefinitely, as well as several devices which appear to be the source of the environmental anomaly surrounding the two top floors (hereby referred to as SCP-####-2 and SCP-####-2a respectively). The majority of the machinery, however, appears to be dedicated to [DATA EXPUNGED] producing SCP-####-1.

SCP-####-1 are humanoid creatures that utilize the facilities in SCP-####-2 and SCP-####-2a while conversing. SCP-####-1 residing in SCP-####-2 appear human, but possess distorted facial features with varying degrees of severity. Conversation between instances consists of random syllables or words with little to no semantic value. These sounds are arranged and inflected as though comprising meaningful conversation, and can be mistaken for human conversation upon initial hearing. Occasionally, an SCP-####-1 instance will enter the room in the back of SCP-####-2 and emerge from a similar room on SCP-####-2a. SCP-####-1 instances utilizing the facilities in SCP-####-2a appear entirely human, and communicate in English on a variety of mundane subjects. Facial recognition software has been unable to find matches for any instance of SCP-####-1, but personnel often report vague similarity to celebrities, political figures, and highly televised popular athletes.

SCP-####-2 and SCP-####-2a are reached via an elevator running up the side of the building. Upon reaching SCP-####-2, the ambient temperature will become a constant 20 degrees Celsius. To an observer within 10 meters of SCP-####-2 or SCP-####-2a, it will appear to be nighttime, with a waning crescent moon, and constellations consistent with late spring in Upper Sandusky.

SCP-####-2 has no accessible entrance. Upon reaching SCP-####-2, the elevator doors will open into a chamber composed of plexiglass, apparently designed to view SCP-####-2a interacting within SCP-####-2. SCP-####-2 is designed to resemble a restaurant. The entire floor is dimly lit by hanging light bulbs, and covered by rows of booths of mahogany wood and black leather, with varnished cherry wood tables. No tableware is present in any of the booths. There is a small, windowless room, supposedly meant to represent the kitchen area, in the back. The walls of the viewing chamber maintain a constant temperature of 2 degrees Celsius, suggesting that the ambient temperature within SCP-####-1 is significantly colder than the rest of the building.

SCP-####-2a is the roof of SCP-####, and resembles an open air restaurant. Walls surround SCP-####-2a to a height of two meters. Square tables set for a three-course meal, with white linen tablecloths and crystal stemware, cover the majority of SCP-####-2a. SCP-####-1 instances utilize these utensils as though eating a meal, often pausing in a conversation to raise a glass to its lips or waiting for an instance sitting across from it to finish chewing.

Personnel report feeling a sense of deep contentment while viewing SCP-####-2 and SCP-####-2a. This reaction is universal except among certain individuals with low empathy scores and cluster B personality disorders, but does not otherwise appear to be hazardous. Personnel are capable of removing themselves from the premises voluntarily, after which the feeling dissipates over the course of several minutes. There are no apparent lasting effects to personnel exposed to SCP-####-2 or SCP-####-2a for any length of time.

Approximately every five to seven months, an instance of SCP-####-1 will leave SCP-####-2a, board the elevator, and attempt to exit SCP-####. Autopsies performed on one SCP-####-1 cadaver indicate zero differences to human physiology. All instances exiting SCP-#### are in possession of a brown faux-leather wallet containing the following:

  • $15,000 USD in counterfeit 1,000 dollar bills. Bills lack security tag.
  • One falsified driver's license applicable to Ohio.
  • One falsified birth certificate from a hospital in the vicinity of Upper Sandusky.
  • One Social Security card with a previously unregistered number. No changes to the United States' Social Security Database have been made and several numbers have been taken in the years following containment.

SCP-####-1 instances in containment insist that they are human, and are capable of providing detailed stories of their lives prior to exiting SCP-####. All instances recall their time in SCP-####-2a as a normal visit to a restaurant. No method of truth extraction, including lie detection software, hypnotic drugs, and physical coercion, has produced any further statements regarding SCP-####'s true nature.

Addendum: Audio Log-####-1:
The following was recorded from the observation area in SCP-####-2. Two instances of SCP-####-1, two female, (hereby referred to as F1& F2 for ease of identification) emerged from an entrance out of view of the area and engaged in a brief conversation in thickly accented English, mixed with a currently unidentified language, before sitting in vacant seats, causing their conversation to devolve into normal SCP-####-1 speech patterns.

F1: Why? Is there reason to when we will forget it again, and all things else, in short time?

F2: It makes training again go quickly. Is there any thing that is worth remembering about what awfulness has been left behind by us?

F1: [UNIDENTIFIED]… you were very nice when we departed so rushed. And I liked your appearance. I would have desires to know you better.
