This is a WIP SCP im developing with a friend and id like some criticism on it or ideas for further development of it. We still have a few ideas we havent implemented or that we are discussing, like the location of the SCP, its abilities, further containment procedures, object class and so on. Any constructive criticism and ideas are very much apreciated, as well as input into what class this should be. Also do note that this isnt in the proper format yet, we are just putting it all together before we move it onto format. Hope you enjoy it!

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Containment of the 3 SCP-XXXX-2-1 instances is to be done in a single standard humanoid containment cell with communication and interviews done only with level 3 clearance and from outside the chamber. The instances may be fed whenever they ask for it, with a limit of up to 3 meals per day. If any contained instances die from disease or old age, they are to be swiftly replaced by Class-D personnel, in order to prevent the death / disappearance of SCP-XXXX-2.
Containment of SCP-XXXX-1 is to be done via a fenced perimeter around the affected area. Any civilians approaching the area are to be detained but not directly interacted with. After detainment civilians are to be interrogated and released with proper use of amnestics if revealed to not be affected by either SCP-XXXX-1 or SCP-XXXX-2.
Any instances of SCP-XXXX-1-1 that aproach the security perimeter are not to be terminated but rather returned to the center of the affected area via robotic means as to not reduce the current SCP-XXXX-1-1 population and allow for further research, however, should the number of instances be too great to return to the containment area, lethal force is authorized. At least 1 geostationary satellite and 1 unmanned surveillance drone must be overwatching the affected area, with a substitute drone on standby for refuelling operations. MTF Beta-7 ("Maz Hatters") is to be on standby at all times in case of containment breach.

Description: SCP-XXXX appears to be the shared consciousness of a group of human hosts. There are currently 2 known instances of this SCP which shall be referred to as SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2. These instances are believed to be singular entities that have the capability to control multiple human individuals and use these human hosts to spread their influence beyond the already existing hosts. These hosts appear to use physical contact to spread their influence with apparent difficulty. Unaffected individuals that engage in physical contact will enter what can only be described as a psychological battle against one of the SCP-XXXX instances. Nevertheless, an individual will eventually “lose” this battle and become an SCP-XXXX-1|2-1 instance if physical contact is maintained long enough. This exposure time seems to vary from individual to individual and appears to be directly correlated with a number of factors:

  • An individual's willpower;
  • Former military or anti-interrogation training;
  • Mental illnesses that weaken an individual's memory i.e: Alzheimer's syndrome.

SCP-XXXX-1|2-1 instances do not require sustenance of any kind. They still tend to eat and drink, and appear to take pleasure in doing so, although it may not be biologically necessary for them to do so. Instances will still take harm from most pathogens and physical injury, and may perish if enough physical trauma is applied. They also appear to have the same average lifetime of a normal human, and will die after reaching anywhere from 70 years old to 100 years old.
SCP-XXXX was first discovered when reports came in that a new strain of SCP-008 had been spotted on the town of ███████ in Russia. A squad comprised of 10 MTF Beta-7 (“Maz Hatters”) members was quickly deployed to terminate the infection and possibly recover samples for study. However, the squad quickly realized many symptoms were not concurrent with SCP-008 including the fact that entities were attacking each other and did not act as aggressively or as irrationaly as SCP-008-1 instances. Upon reporting this they were immediately extracted and a makeshift perimeter was set up around the contaminated area as to allow further investigation into the situation. After it was discovered that the affected individuals were acting as groups and moving strategically in 2 different parties, Site-XXX was built in proximity to the perimeter established and multiple surveillance posts were installed all around the perimeter, with the cover story of a highly infectious disease spreading across the area. Approximately 3 weeks after this perimeter was completed, 3 instances approached one of the surveillance posts and started vocalizing in fluent english towards Foundation personnel before they could be terminated. For more information see Event Log-XXXX-1-A.
