Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object class: Euclid


A painting of Nikolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky. SCP-XXXX's facial features maintain a close likeness with this painting.


Photo of SCP-XXXX acquired from %mr_██████%. No further images of SCP-XXXX are to be presented to mitigate the risk of data corruption.

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept inside a soundproof room, fitted with basic accommodations. The containment cell is to be fitted with smooth granite walls and floors, and no surfaces that support writing are to be exposed to SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX is not to communicate, nor is SCP-XXXX to be given any writing materials or mediums.

In the event that SCP-XXXX-J has acquired writing implements, Foundation staff are to immediately release remifetanil gas into the containment cell of SCP-XXXX. Staff are then to remove the writing from the area in question, while maintaining minimal eye contact with the writing. If SCP-XXXX has spoken to a staff member, the staff member is to undergo thorough psychological analysis and treatment.

Soundproof tiles are to be installed inside the containment cell of SCP-XXXX, and due to the fact that SCP-XXXX is potentially able to cause major damage to the health of Foundation staff, SCP-XXXX is to be punished via 5C-01-T Class electrical stun baton, and complete denial of food and water when it makes an unsolicited attempt at communication. SCP-XXXX is to wear a shock collar at all times, which is to be used along with the stun baton to punish SCP-XXXX.

Description: SCP-XXXX-J is an adult male of Caucasian descent, resembling the 19th-century mathematician Nikolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky. Genetic testing on the hair and saliva of SCP-XXXX have proven inconclusive to its origin, as the genetic material provided is heavily denatured and decayed, with its composition consistent to that of a deceased body. SCP-XXXX speaks fluent Russian, as well as fluent English, both with no vocal inflection. SCP-XXXX also is able to comprehend Latin, Aramaic, Hebrew, Mandarin Chinese, and Arabic.

SCP-XXXX has the normal social skills expected of a regular human, as D-class personnel reported SCP-XXXX to be "likable", "friendly", and "intellectual". Observation of SCP-XXXX among humans does in fact confirm this fact, as SCP-XXXX has been observed to actively and successfully attempt to hold conversations with D-class. SCP-XXXX has also been observed to tell Russian folktales to personnel of Russian ancestry, and tell jokes and stories to those that SCP-XXXX comes into contact with. SCP-XXXX's perceived "likeability" often results in potential victims becoming infected by SCP-XXXX.

The anomalous properties of SCP-XXXX manifest in the people SCP-XXXX holds mathematics-related conversations with. All people, except those with a PhD in mathematics, or mathematics-related fields, exposed to SCP-XXXX lose certain abilities regarding mathematics, in that such people lose the ability to perform complex calculations correctly. SCP-XXXX appears to be fully aware of the cognitohazardous and memetic properties it holds, and will often attempt to converse with researchers, or write equations in an attempt to infect researchers, hinder research effects on it, and possibly attempt escape after debilitating Foundation staff. There is no known method to reverse or cure SCP-XXXX infection.


Psychological Evaluation of SCP-XXXX

Symptoms of SCP-XXXX infection





Note: This file is heavily corrupted in that [REDACTED], the equipment used to record this file was corrupted due to %xxxx_activity%.



Addendum-XXXX-01: Observation of the anomalous properties of SCP-XXXX have corroborated with three major incidents, the Astronomers United incident, the Mathematics National Conference incident, and the Israeli-American Mathematical Summit incident. An unidentified man, with a physical description similar to that of SCP-XXXX, was a guest speaker at all three incidents, and most participants present in all three incidents all displayed symptoms consistent with SCP-XXXX infection. All infected participants were reported to be sent to local mental institutions. Autopsies of corpses of participants from all three events revealed neural changes consistent with that of individuals infected by SCP-XXXX.

Addendum-XXXX-02: This guy is a sociopathic bastard. He's already killed four D-class personnel. Oh, and he says he wants to turn people into slaves for writing his books. Let's just kill him. His books sound worthless anyways. What are we keeping him for?
- Dr. Karadzic

Addendum-XXXX-03: We are not authorized to kill or destroy any objects in containment. The only thing we can do is to punish. Also, Dr. Karadzic, we refer to SCPs as objects, not people.
- Dr. Miyazono

Addendum-XXXX-04: Pages containing content written SCP-XXXX experience severe irreversible data corruption. Such corruption is irreversible, and attempts to reverse such corruption result in greater data loss. The only successully recorded instance of written content produced by SCP-XXXX has been archived at %DATA_CORRUPTED% All other attempts to record SCP-XXXX's content have resulted in multiple [REDACTED] and [REDACTED].
- Dr. Draber

Addendum-XXXX-05: Foundation personnel wishing to access this file must have all files on their computer fully backed up, and must connect using the %DATA_CORRUPTED% proxy server. Do not attempt to view this file using a personal computer, or a Foundation mainframe computer. All personnel accessing the file without proper procedures will be detained and punished.
