SCP-XXXX immediatley after containment

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures:

SCP-XXXX is to be a kept in a 13 m x 10 m x 13 m concrete-rebar chamber lined with 26 cm thick lead plating. The chamber is to be monitored by a closed circuit channel through vandal proof security cameras, outfitted with Geiger counters, which are to be coated by a radiation/blast resistant polymer. The interior of SCP-XXXX's chamber is to be replaced on a bi-monthly basis by a group of 10 selected D-class personnel, each outfitted with Level A radiation suits.

Any monitored change in SCP-XXXX's output of ionizing radiation, or animation on it's own part, is to be met first with appropriate force by on site security personnel. Should this fail, the site is to be evacuated and held on lockdown, with further containment to be established by Mobile Task Force Unit Beta-7 ("Maz Hatters") and [DATA EXPUNGED]

Scratch that one out, doc. Not making that mistake again. - Junior Researcher F█████████

Any instances of SCP-XXXX-1 encountered by either the common public or Foundation personnel are to be immediately captured, and held at Site-19, which itself is to be monitored by a closed circuit channel. Care is to be taken as not to come into contact with any instance's animus field, and no more than 10 instances may be allowed within 10 m of each other, as doing so may cause an activation event. Any abnormalities is to be reported to the Head Researcher Del████.

Any instances of SCP-XXXX-2 are to be immediately reported to O5-█, who will then chose to authorize Procedure Bethel-2, if necessary.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an orange, humanoid statue of a polygonal style composed mainly of common plastic, fiberglass and slight traces of an unidentified isotope of copper.1 In its left hand is a bronze and iron plaque with the words "For Ellen - SOLACE" etched into the center. SCP-XXXX's primary anomalous property is the fact that it emits a constant and moderate volume of ionizing radiation, along with another type of electromagnetic band similar in shape to theta brain waves. It should be noted that as a whole, the statue is unremarkable, as it has been collectively described as "plain", "simple", or otherwise "boring", and the resulting radiation can be easily defended against with standard protection.

SCP-XXXX was discovered in ███████, in ████████████ County, U.S., in the basement of the late ████ O'Connell, a local artist. Initially, reports of a strange stomach virus were circulating until the late symptoms of radiation poisoning began to appear, despite the nearest reactor being in ███████ County, approximately 34 km away. Eventually, the Foundation stepped in following reports of concurrent "hallucinatory experiences" among infected, which subsequently lead to the discovery of SCP-XXXX's second anomalous property.


An instance of SCP-XXXX-1

SCP-XXXX-1 is the designation given to any of 45 167 █████ creatures of ambiguous origin. These creatures appear to be leporine in nature, however are silicon based biochemically, and exhibit instant change in behavior2 toward any person within said instances proxemic space,3 which has been collectivley dubbed "Animus Field".If at any point should this field be intruded on by any more than approximately 8 subjects, [REDACTED] with strong polarization, which can include [REDACTED], or brutal mauling.

SCP-XXXX-1 will spontaneously appear in various locations, however, most appearances will be confined to ███████ County and the immediate area. Upon creation, instances of SCP-XXXX-1 will attempt to seek out other instances, and to a lesser extent, SCP-XXXX itself. The reason for doing so is unknown, and is presumably linked to social functions among the aggregate species. (For those with Level 3 clearance, see Incident Report-XXXX A.)

Suggesting culling of SCP-XXXX-1 numbers, to ensure controlled population. - Site Director Del████

Pending approval - O5-█

Addendum XXXX/A/1: Excerpts from the journal of the late ████ O'Connell, presumed owner of SCP-XXXX

Recovery Note: The journal of Mr. O'Connell was recovered at the discovery site of SCP-XXXX, hidden among rubble caused by an F2-tornado, which had occurred 6 days before initial contact with SCP-XXXX.

Dear Journal,

I think this art thing is starting to pan out. I was able to get "ZENITH" on display at the local gallery. I personally thought it did very well, although Ellen wasn't there to see it. She was busy working a double shift at ██████'s shoppe. I don't mind, perhaps I can take her myself for a nice evening in the town.
Rufus is starting to misbehave a bit. And I haven't exactly been able to find any obedience schools nearby… Maybe I should just ask ██████, he's always good with dogs.

Maybe I just need a cat.

Dear Journal, (I'll just leave these out from now on)

So, I found some beautiful sheets of copper plating at the junkyard, I thought I'd use them in the next piece. ████████ said they'd be only $30 a plate.

(A small portion of the page is lightly scribbled on, most viably as an idle thought mechanism)

Yup, something like that. Anyway, strange thing went down today. A man saw my recent work in the gallery, and thanked me for the "refreshing take on the matter". Lord knows what he saw, it was very literally a tangle of glass threads and acrylic. But then he handed me this paper with a diagram on it, and said it was "inspiration" for my next work. Don't know what the fuss is all about, all I saw was a picture of a featureless man4

I think this journal thing is kinda working out.


Sunday, 7/23/██

Ellen came down with something, I had to skip another interview… I think I heard something about a bug going around. I moved it to a week from now, I assume she'll be well enough by then. I've seen her bounce back from worse.

I started looking at that drawing the man gave me, and I noticed some writing on the back. A lot of writing, now that I think about it. It was a bunch of ramblings on nonsense, but I think that's the point. To show the volatility and fickleness of humanity … Maybe the guy was just a loon. Hell, maybe I'm a loon, but I think I have an idea.

I'll start it tomorrow. I'm thinking … plastic.


Wednesday, 9/02/██

I just got a call. I just landed an interview with █████████████! I was able to finish the man, and they want me to say a few words regarding its meaning. I don't know exactly what to call it, but it turned out well. The only thing I can't say I enjoyed was the process of making it … it felt mechanical, almost like I was…manufacturing as opposed to creating. Makes for a good anecdote, if anything

Ellen hasn't been progressing very well.

…Christ, chemo costs a lot.



Note: Further journal entries devolved into nonsensical ramblings, with later pages bearing several low-grade cognitohazards. Research revealed that ████ O'Connell had become shut in at this time, losing contact with close relatives and friends. Gathered information suggests subject had developed chronic late stage psychosis, and obsessive compulsive disorder, although the cause is largely unknown, as records reveal that Ellen O'Connell had been in intensive care at this time.

In light of Incident-XXXX A, suggesting upgrade to Keter immediatley. - Head Researcher Del████.
