Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is considered well-contained within host body, SCP-XXXX-B. Host should be housed in roughly 4x4x3 meter, comfortably-lit, furnished cell and be fed according to MTF meal plan. Provide non-electronic reading material as requested by host, contingent upon attendance of bi-weekly psychological evaluations. Wear full skin protection whenever dealing with the host. Recognize continued compliance but anticipate possibility of defiance. Avoid mentions of philosophy, time, or quantum theory, as they may lead SCP-XXXX-B into panic. Intercept and archive all outgoing mail posted by host.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a neurological contagion transmitted through epidermal contact. The germ afflicts only a single host at any given time, departing from the body of its previous host immediately upon transmission to a new one. The first confirmed host was denoted SCP-XXXX-A, and all successive hosts are denoted similarly with ascending letter suffixes. Due to the pathogen’s presumed 100% lethality rate (as demonstrated in SCP:/XXXX/incidents/001.log), SCP-XXXX was previously classified as Keter, but has been downgraded due to compliant behavior of current host SCP-XXXX-B, who was originally an MTF Psi-7 guard.

Symptoms upon infection include:

  • Nervous tics
  • Widening of eyes
  • Panic attacks
  • Tingling sensations in the fingers, nose, or ears
  • Delusions of grandeur
  • Acquisition of memories from lifetimes of previous hosts

Symptoms upon return to good health include:

  • Instantaneous death
