Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: All instances of SCP-XXXX are to be contained in site 19 in standard humanoid containment. Instances should be interviewed by available staff or D-class at least once a day to prevent psychological harm. sterile humanoid containment rooms constructed of any corrosion resistant material that can withstand over 10,000 psi. Containment cells must be monitored at all times via two-way mirror by site personnel who have not communicated with any instances of SCP-XXXX. The entrance should contain a double airlock with a decontamination shower and sterilized hazmat suits available at all times. No more than 5 instances should be in a room together. Instances must have access to a steady supply of sterilized water at all times through shower heads or sprinkler systems. At no time should any standing water be present inside the containment area.
All personnel entering a containment area must undergo complete decontamination and be issued medical grade face masks and gloves. All personnel must wait a five (5) day period before entering the cell a second time.

Description: SCP-XXXX are humanoid entities who lack necks. Their "heads" levitate above their shoulders due to unknown means and possess no facial features other than a single eye that varies in size with each instance. The head can rotate 360 degrees and is capable of floating 1.5 meters away from its body. All instances of SCP-XXXX exhibit extreme albinism, however, they are immune to the effects of ultraviolet rays and thus can stay in sunlight without experiencing pain or erythema. MRI scans have determined SCP-XXXX have no internal organs, with the exception of a brain located in the abdomen of the body. The brain is surrounded by bone-like material in a similar fashion to the human ribcage. Other than the aforementioned and lack of C1-7 vertebrae, the skeletal structure resembles that of a typical human's.
SCP-XXXX are sentient and have been shown to each possess unique personalities, and are capable of speech in every known language (including languages considered to be "extinct" (i.e. Latin, Celtic…) through telepathic means. When an instance of SCP-XXXX is communicating with a human, the human is able to temporarily experience telepathy, however, this is limited to the SCP-XXXX instance they are communing with. SCP-XXXX instances are only able to communicate when in line of sight able to communicate at any distance, provide that the two have communed at least 3-8 times in the past, and possess a strong bond. Other anomalous abilities include telekinesis (strength of which is based on how long an instance has practiced) and invisible barriers (Testing has shown that the barriers can withstand up to 15,000 Joules of force).

IMPORTANT When an instance of SCP-XXXX contracts the human rhinovirus, symptoms will surface in 2-7 days after it has been infected (even if symptoms are not present, it is still transmittable to other SCP-XXXX) and the disease will progress in four stages.

1. Onset of symptoms

  • Irritation, redness, and swelling of the eye.
  • Dry skin
  • Difficulty communicating through telepathy

2. 5 days after initial symptoms

  • Dry skin will develop lesions, from which reddish-black viscous and acidic liquid will constantly seep out of. This liquid is highly contagious and toxic to humans. In high concentrations, this liquid is able to burn through concrete and cause multiple organ failures in humans.
  • Hydrophobia

3. 7 days after initial symptoms

  • Lesions become deep cavities.
  • Sharp calcium deposits form around the edges of the cavity, accompanied by mucosa tissue development inside, forming a "tongue". This process is described to be extremely painful.

4. 8 days after initial symptoms

  • Higher brain function ceases, no longer able to use any anomalous abilities.
  • Carnivorous behavior, instances described to be in a perpetual state of hunger. Instances will seek out and consume any living thing it comes across, but seems to target █████ the most. If infected instances have not consumed any living organic matter in the span of 24 hours after losing brain function, the parasitic "mouths" that have developed on the body will begin to [REDACTED]

Based on the nature of the SCP and how easily the human rhinovirus is spread, I request we update the class of SCP-XXXX to Euclid -Senior Researcher E█████ H████
