Item #: SCP-049-DJ

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment procedures:

Description: SCP-049-DJ is a humanoid entity, roughly 1.9 meters in height, which bears the appearance of a medieval plague doctor, with the exception of the modern backpack it wears on it's back. While SCP-049-DJ appears to be wearing the thick robes and the leather mask indicative of that profession, the garments instead seem to have grown out of SCP-049-DJ's body over time1, and are now nearly indistinguishable from whatever form is beneath them. X-rays indicate that despite this, SCP-049-DJ does have a humanoid skeletal structure beneath its outer layer. SCP-049-DJ has back complications due to it's bad posture.

SCP-049-DJ is capable of speech in a variety of languages, and seems to know almost all aspects of music, and is known to sing or hum on occasion.2 SCP-049-DJ is cordial to Foundation staff with a background in some sort of music,3 otherwise it simply ignores them. SCP-049-DJ becomes very exited in the presence of music it deems "Sick beats".4 How SCP-049-DJ determines what are sick beats and what are not is currently unknown to Foundation researchers, and seems to be completely random.

Edit: SCP-049 will become hostile with individuals it sees as being affected by the Pestilence, often having to be restrained should it encounter such. If left unchecked, SCP-049 will generally attempt to kill any such individual; SCP-049 is capable of causing all biological functions of an organism to cease through direct skin contact. How this occurs is currently unknown, and autopsies of SCP-049's victims have invariably been inconclusive. SCP-049 has expressed frustration or remorse after these killings, indicating that they have done little to kill "The Pestilence", though will usually seek to then perform a crude surgery on the corpse using the implements contained within a black doctor's bag it carries on its person at all times. While these surgeries are not always "successful", they often result in the creation of instances of SCP-049-2.
