An instance of SCP-XXXX-02.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a standard humanoid containment cell and supplied with 900 calories per day. No requests by SCP-XXXX for further amenities of any kind shall be approved. SCP-XXXX shall be permitted to leave its cell at most once every 15 hours, under strict supervision by 6 D-class personnel with at least Level 1 security clearance, for 1 hour of mandatory physical exercise and basic self care. (D-class personnel with a history of sex crimes against children may be more susceptible to the effects of SCP-XXXX-01, and are therefore not eligible for clearance on this project.) Supervising personnel must be equipped with gas masks prior to interaction with SCP-XXXX, and must be administered class-A amnestics upon expiration of the allotted hour. Access to the interior of SCP-XXXX's cell is cleared to all personnel, but anyone caught approaching the cell without a gas mask will be terminated on sight.

Update ██/██/82: Following Incident XXXX-09, nothing identifiable as alive is permitted to enter or leave the cell under any circumstances. The cell is to be barricaded with 3 meters of concrete on all sides. A suction chamber is to be installed into the ceiling to minimize concentration of breathable air to a baseline sufficient to sustain basic life functions. The ceiling is to be raised 5 meters to prevent access to the suction chamber. Following any containment breach, all on-site personnel with Level 3 security clearance must be notified immediately. To prevent or postpone an LK-class species transmutation scenario, at least 5 of the notified personnel are then to initiate Emergency Recontainment Procedure XXXX-09A-Riemann. All knowledge of this procedure shall require Level 3 security clearance. Any personnel lacking this clearance are not to attempt to involve themselves any more profoundly in the recontainment process than notifying the appropriate superiors.

Description: SCP-XXXX was recovered unconscious from the remains of a biohazard research facility deep in the Sahara Desert after an SOS radio transmission was received from its coordinates 4 hours prior. The item is a Chinese male, 13 years of age, standing at 159 centimeters and weighing 112 kilograms. It professes no memory of any events prior to its acquisition. It presents as subdued, articulate, and cooperative. Despite its weight, SCP-XXXX presents with no further health problems typically comorbid with obesity, excepting mild depression, severe binge eating disorder, body dysmorphic disorder, and moderately impaired motility.

SCP-XXXX's skin constantly exudes pheromones matching no known signature of any species. These pheromones shall henceforth be designated SCP-XXXX-01. Analysis of the chemical composition by mass of SCP-XXXX-01 revealed 12% androstenol, 10% previously unknown strand of virus, 15% a newly discovered neurotransmitter predicted to inform excessive production of leptin and oxytocin, and the remaining 63% water vapor. The function of these pheromones, if any, is currently unknown. (See Incident Report XXXX-03A.) Upon discovery of SCP-XXXX-01, SCP-XXXX's SCP classification was established, and containment procedures were defined accordingly.

SCP-XXXX becomes visibly distressed when discussing SCP-XXXX-01, acknowledging its existence but denying any knowledge of its origin or function. If the matter is pushed, the item's distress will escalate into an increasingly nonresponsive state of panic similar in presentation to malignant catatonia. The item claimed during Interview XXXX-02 with Dr. Lucas Kane, the log of which has been lost, that it "didn't mean to hurt them" and that "they can smell [its] hunger." Interrogations into whom exactly SCP-XXXX has hurt, and by what means, have proven ineffective. (See Interview Log XXXX-04.)

Further anomalous properties become apparent when SCP-XXXX is examined under ultrasound. The item's abdominal adipose tissue appears to move of its own accord for a total of 2.3 hours a day on average. The mechanism of its motility has yet to be ascertained, but is under investigation. Update ██/██/81: Layers of adipose have begun to coagulate into 24 distinguishable deposits in shapes resembling fetuses. One such deposit surgically extracted for analysis. Development found to be informed by the viral component of SCP-XXXX-01 in cooperation with foreign genetic and neurological material of unknown source. Deposits have been designated SCP-XXXX-02. SCP-XXXX reports their development has caused it incremental physical pain.
