Item #: XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in its house on ████████ ████, a residential street in north London. The interior furnishings of the house are not to be changed, but the windows have been boarded up from the outside to prevent the SCP being seen. A single D-Class 'guest' is required on site at all times to prevent SCP-XXXX becoming aggravated and trying to escape. These guests should be alternated on twenty-four-hour shifts for their own welfare, as during this time they will not be able to consume food or drink, or relieve themselves, unless invited by SCP-XXXX, in which case they must consume everything provided. It is recommended that these guests sit or stand in the hallway unless gestured otherwise. When other locations are suggested by SCP-XXXX, the guest must move to these locations immediately.

During daylight hours, the house must have a constant supply of electricity. This is to prevent the SCP becoming agitated by a lack of light during daytime. The building next door is also under Foundation ownership, and has been fitted with a backup generator. A second guest should also be kept here in case the current guest requires assistance or replacement.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a humanoid measuring 1.9 metres tall. Its torso and head are sized similar to a child of approximately 10 years old, but has disproportionately long arms and legs. Its legs make up the majority of its height. When viewed from the front, its face is a near perfect circle. Its facial features are normal, with the exception of its circular eyes, measuring five centimetres in diameter. These eyes have no visible iris, pupil, or sclera and are instead textured like molten gold.
Its tan skin is visible on the face, arms, and lower legs. Its torso and upper legs are covered by regular child's clothes, which have reportedly never changed or become more damaged. Any attempts to get close to SCP-XXXX result in it backing away quickly until it is out of sight, where it will spontaneously transport itself to either its bedroom or the attic by an unknown method.

SCP-XXXX spends the majority of time in its bedroom or the attic. When the SCP is inhabiting either of these locations, all entranceways are locked. Similarly to all other furniture in the house, attempting to tamper with these entrances results in what the guests have described as 'a punch in the gut' - an incredible pain which incapacitates anyone attempting to change the interior of the house. This pain will occur wherever SCP-XXXX is in the household and is not caused by any physical force. Along with the gut-punch that the guest receives, after furniture successfully moved it will be put back into place. The same reaction occurs if the guest fails to consume any food or drink provided, or use chairs or doors moved by SCP-XXXX. It is assumed that SCP-XXXX has some sort of telekinetic capability, as no other method of moving these objects has been found.
Upon repeated exposure, the gut-punch becomes increasingly dangerous. For a full review of the increasing effects, see Experiment XXXX-A.

If no guest is present in the house, SCP-XXXX will become increasingly agitated. Its state has been measured from outside its bedroom window before the outer boards were put in place.
After three minutes of the house being empty, SCP-XXXX will curl up on its bed in the fetal position. It will remain like this for approximately seven minutes, after which it will stand up and gently push its body into the wall. Over time, it will become more violent, eventually damaging the wall and finally breaking through it entirely. It will continue to do this until it reaches a house with inhabitants. It will not let the interior of this new house be altered from the moment it arrives.

SCP-XXXX has shown no desire to communicate. It has never spoken or attempted any other means, other than gesturing to food or chairs when they are provided. It does not react to spoken or written word, apart from when threatened with violence, when it will transport itself to either its bedroom or the attic.

SCP-XXXX came to the Foundation's attention on 09/05/20██ when residents of ████████ ████ reported that someone's had just broken through the wall of their house from next door. Police officers sent to investigate were left incapacitated by an 'invisible force' after breaking the door down to enter. As subsequent teams suffered the same fate, the Foundation was reported of anomalous activity.
The Foundation is still searching for the previous owners of the house that SCP-XXXX originated from, as their property was abandoned minutes before SCP-XXXX's escape. Their ownership of the house, and all of their details provided for them to do so have not provided any leads. Their elusive nature has led many Foundation employees tasked with tracking them down to believe they may have been involved in the creation or release of SCP-XXXX.

Experiment XXXX-A

Experiment XXXX-A was performed to ascertain the effects of repeated exposure to SCP-XXXX's gut punch. Subject D-12144 was chosen for this experiment, due to a history of compliance in other scenarios. He was fitted with a chest-mounted camera, microphone and earpiece. Unlike wall-mounted variants, SCP-XXXX does not seem to consider these a threat. A transcript of this experiment is available below.

Upon recovery from the household, D-12144 was transported to a nearby Foundation site for a medical evaluation. Before arrival, large amounts of internal haemorrhaging caused D-12144's death. A post-mortem examination revealed D-12144 had sustained a large number of wounds, notably:

  • 12 fractured ribs, some in multiple places.
  • Multiple breaks in the lining of the small and large intestine.
  • Irreparable damage to the kidneys and spleen.
  • A large tear in the skin over the abdomen, revealing the muscle below.

Further experimentation has been approved to ascertain SCP-XXXX's method of instantaneous transportation, in hopes that it can be more effectively contained.
