Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: An 8 km perimeter is to be maintained around Area-XXXX-01 which will be used as the containment facility for SCP-XXXX and all related instances. All instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be stored in the onsite hangar which is to be restricted to L2 personnel. Each instance of SCP-XXXX is to be hand inspected once every other day to ensure a new SCP-XXXX-1 instance has not formed or any accidental activation has not occurred. Any new instances that do form are to be cataloged and inspected before storing and activated instances found are to be investigated with findings recorded along with their related data and SCP-XXXX-2 folder before the instance is destroyed. All activated instances are to be destroyed after data is collected.

Pending requests for SCP-XXXX-1 instances to be used with other SCPs that require human corpses. Also pending request for using instances for medical purposes.

SCP-XXXX-2 and SCP-XXXX-3 are to be contained in the building previously used as the administrative bunker with all SCP-XXXX-2 folders being kept within a locked filing cabinet and SCP-XXXX-3 being kept within a standard storage locker.

During testing involving an activated, or activating an SCP-XXXX-1 instance, sedatives and an emergency trauma team are to be on hand in the event the instance becomes animate so that it may be transported to Bio-Area 14 for analysis and possible questioning. Should this occur, the corresponding instance's SCP-XXXX-2 folder will be brought as well.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the designation given to a set of weapon testing equipment used by the US military in the 1940's time period. The equipment was originally found on a United States military site which was previously used for nuclear weapon testing and storage before Foundation acquisition after an emergency stop of an atomic detonation test utilizing SCP-XXXX instances as a means of recording data. This location is now used for the containment and testing of SCP-XXXX as well as related instances due to new SCP-XXXX-1 instances reforming in the storage warehouse found near the south side of the facility. The process by which this occurs is currently unknown.

SCP-XXXX-1 is a collection of mannequins made of standard grade plastics commonly used in the 1940's time period made to resemble a general population of people also from the post-war era. Original SCP-XXXX-1 instances mostly resembled average age white families generally consisting of 1-3 children, and a husband and wife, though corresponding reference pages usually indicated they were unrelated to one another. More recent formations have consisted of a variety of ethnicities but are usually males from ages 20-45 according to their corresponding SCP-XXXX-2 document folder. If an SCP-XXXX-1 instance is destroyed or used for its intended purpose, a new SCP-XXXX-1 instance will appear in the on site warehouse along with a matching SCP-XXXX-2 folder. SCP-XXXX-1 instances have formed at seemingly random intervals in the past.

If an SCP-XXXX-1 instance is attacked by someone using a weapon or using an object as a weapon, they will become active, changing to a human corpse matching the instances reference page description. Active SCP-XXXX-1 instances usually show no sign of life and have an extremely limited amount of residual energy at even the cellular level. Testing has shown this to be approximate to the amount of energy within the corresponding mannequin from before activation. Activated SCP-XXXX-1 instances are also 100% anatomically accurate to a human body in conjunction with their corresponding reference page, even displaying non-voluntary responses to injuries as well as general bodily functions including blood circulation, breathing patterns, and nervous system reactions. Despite this, instruments fail to pick up life signs of any kind, and the only times these functions have been observed is in reaction to injuries inflicted to the instance. Despite reaction to injuries through bodily functions, sentience has not been recorded [See Testing Logs Below] in response to pain or fear.

SCP-XXXX-2 is a collection of standard Manila folders, each with three small brass tabs on the side as well as the corresponding SCP-XXXX-1 instances "name", including first, last, and middle initial, printed with standard ink on the front top-left side of the cover. The first and middle initial as well as the full last name is also printed on the tab. Inside of all newly formed folders is an information page which includes full birth name, any nicknames if they apply, age, date of birth, race, brief medical history, and brief summarized criminal and/or military records (pages with these absent are assumed to indicate the subject to not have any criminal or military history). At time of recovery, there were a total of 71 folders, though there is now more than 1██ pages. The brass tabs are supposedly intended for SCP-XXXX-3 data sheets to be added to, though recovered folders also contained notes added to the file pertaining to the specific instances testing written by the military researchers working on the site before Foundation acquisition. While these researches preserved the activated instances, this is discouraged unless specifically stated in the testing of the subject.

SCP-XXXX-3 is a 1930's teleprinter with a Siemen's & Halske logo on it's front that has been modified to print on standard letter sized paper instead of the paper roll usually associated with teleprinters. Despite that it prints letter sized paper, a roll of paper is attached to the head of SCP-XXXX-3 and during printing, paper from the roll is fed into the machine. The model is unrecognized by the company and resembles no models of competing companies from the era. After approximately 1 minute of an active SCP-XXXX-1 instance receiving no damage from weaponry or other accepted injury, SCP-XXXX-3 will print out a sheet filled with data corresponding to the injuries inflicted on the last used SCP-XXXX-1 instance. Generally this data is split into categories relevant to the injuries inflicted upon the entity. Categories observed in the past have been fluid loss, bone related injuries, organ and internal injuries, combat effectiveness and others. All data uses relevant units that change according to amount or intensity. Units are generally in US customary though testing with foreign weaponry has resulted in metric and other unit systems. SCP-XXXX-3 requires a power source to operate but does not seem to require ink or paper, as the roll at the top does not seem to lose material even when printing for several hours. If the device is without power during testing, the machine will not print the data but will instead print when reconnected to a power source, printing the data sheet(s) that would have printed if it had received power throughout. SCP-XXXX-3 does not appear to have any means of storing data to be able to record data.

Addendum XXXX-01 5/04/19██: Following the events of test 73, instances of SCP-XXXX-1 have been found to become animate after what is assumed the expiration of the corresponding subject identical to the activated instance. While follow up tests are underway, it is understood that the condition and possible consciousness of the subject will transfer to the activated SCP-XXXX-1 instance. These conditions are also recorded on the SCP-XXXX-2 report as if it was part of the injury inflicted. All cases matching these circumstances should be transported to Bio-Area 14 regardless of sentience or animation.

Addendum XXXX-02 8/22/20██: On 8/20/20██, after the routine inspection of the contained instances, one appeared to have become activated without cause. When the replacement instance appeared within the on-site warehouse, it's folder contained an announcement.

Thank you for your continued business. As a reward for customer dedication these past ███ years, we have sent you an exclusive model! This improved rendition requires no restocking and will never lose it's function! All we ask in return is that you continue to allow us to share in the collection of your data. Thank you, and god-speed!

The next 'shipment' that is mentioned in test 73 corresponded to the replacement SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 instances that formed. This instance also had a typed note resting on top of the SCP-XXXX-2 folder.

"We are sorry for the technical difficulties that occurred with your last use of our product. We are constantly working to make your testing easy and complication free and we look forward to your continued business."

Analysis of the note and delivered instance are under way.

Later autopsy of instance from test 73 revealed late stages of coronary heart disease, revealing a large plaque build-up in the Aortic arch of the heart. Further investigation showed that a person with the same information as provided in the corresponding SCP-XXXX-2 page had expired during an emergency heart procedure. Investigation into SCP-XXXX-1 instances has revealed similarities to people in various locations with minor variations. DNA testing is currently under way between activated SCP-XXXX-1 instances and their living counterparts as well as activation and expiration of corresponding subject.
