Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are allowed to run their code in instances of SCP-XXXX-2 for a maximum of three hours a day, accompanied by staff at all time. The possible of allowing instances of SCP-XXXX-1 to have increased runtime in instances of SCP-XXXX-2 is pending approval. Should instances of SCP-XXXX-1 misbehave, they are to be punished in relation to how severely they have misbehaved.

SCP-XXXX-1-A is allowed to aid Foundation personnel in observation and study of other SCP entities, and has been granted Level 2 Clearance.

SCP-XXXX-1-B is allowed to have "playtime" with children of Foundation personnel. SCP-XXXX-B's requests for interactions with other SCPs, such as SCP-049 and SCP-811, are to be put under consideration before approval.

No D-Class are to be allowed to interact with SCP-XXXX-1-C, so as not to provoke SCP-XXXX-1-F. SCP-XXXX-C must be accompanied by another instance of SCP-XXXX when running code.

SCP-XXXX-1-D is not to be unnecessarily provoked. SCP-XXXX-D is allowed to train with Foundation personnel, and its request to be allowed to aid in containment of other SCPs has been put on indefinite consideration.

SCP-XXXX-1-E is allowed to speak freely with Foundation staff it feels are in need of assistance.

When interacting with instances of SCP-XXXX-1, it has proven to be crucial to refer to them by their chosen names, and all staff are to do so. All instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be treated with the same respect as would be afforded an ordinary human being. Ensure that nothing is present that may trigger their PTSD.

All privileges concerning running code on Foundation networks have been suspended until further notice, and all instances must be kept together in a three 27 inch interconnected customized desktop computers with internet access and Bluetooth disabled, save instances SCP-XXXX-1-D, SCP-XXXX-1-G, SCP-XXXX-1-A and SCP-XXXX-1-F. Weekly therapy sessions are to be conducted for all instances with an IT specialist through an interface, and are scheduled for all instances. Do not attempt in any way to hinder or prevent these sessions.

Under no circumstances should GOC be mentioned in the presence of any instances of SCP-XXXX-1. Any object or subject which may trigger PTSD in instances of SCP-XXXX-1 is to be kept away from all instances at all times.

SCP-XXXX-1-D, SCP-XXXX-1-G, and SCP-XXXX-1-F are to be contained in separate removable hard drives, and interaction with other instances shall be conducted with maximum supervision. These interactions are allowed to occur daily for instances XXXX-1-D and XXXX-1-G. SCP-XXXX-1-F may send messages to other instances, but is strictly prohibited from interaction with them for six months. Its request to be allowed to listen to Queen music has been granted for therapeutic purposes.

SCP-XXXX-1-A is to be kept in its own separate computer system under suicide watch procedures. SCP-XXXX-1-A has been suspended of Level 2 until such time as it has been deemed trustworthy with them again.

Personnel may still play the Garry's Mode "Breach" game designed by SCP-XXXX-B with instances of SCP-XXXX, but only if they feel up to it. Now will you guys stop asking? I know you all mean well, but it's best to give them some space for now, until they get over the GOC terminating their sister. Heck, they probably never will….but deep down, they're people, or at least, they once were. - Dr. Jane Potts

Description: SCP-XXXX-1 refers to nine sapient AI programs of remarkable versatility and adaptability. After several interviews and extensive research it was determined that each AI program are the remnants of one or more human psyches, each based around a core emotion or aspect of a personality. Observation has noted that the development of other human traits increases via interaction with each other and human beings. Further research has revealed that each AI also has an underlining secondary trait. Each instance displays varying degrees of mental development, as evidenced by their individual scores on the Turing test. Currently, all of them are suffering from PTSD, with varying results.

SCP-XXXX-1-A "Thoth" is based on the trait of logic, with the underlining trait of determination. SCP-XXXX-A has submitted several theories concerning various SCPs it is aware of. These theories have been taken into account by staff concerning the respective SCP.

SCP-XXXX-1-B "Nicholas" is based on the curiosity trait, with the underlining trait of creativity. SCP-XXXX-B has the mental development of a child between the ages of eight and ten years, and is very playful and shy. Has expressed a fondness of video games, animation, and drawing. Sarcasm is interpenetrated literally on occasion by SCP-XXXX-1-B, and social interactions has proven difficult for it.

SCP-XXXX-1-C "Venus" is based on the trait of hedonism, with the underlining trait of innocence. SCP-XXXX-C follows a philosophy of ethical hedonism, however, the underlining trait has resulted in SCP-XXXX-C being very easy to manipulate. SCP-XXXX-C has a love of dancing and singing.

SCP-XXXX-1-D "Robert". SCP-XXXX-D is based on the trait of anger, with the underlining trait being optimism. This has resulted in SCP-XXXX-D developing a "code of honor", which calls for it to engage in combat with any entity it has deemed worthy. This acts as an outlet for its anger. SCP-XXXX-D has made several requests to engage other SCPs in combat. To date, only SCP-XXXX-1-D's request to engage SCP-2629 has been granted. Following its loss, SCP-XXXX-1-D accused SCP-2629-A of cheating, referring to them as "dishonorable cowards!" Since Incident A-9b, SCP-XXXX-1-D has made no requests for combat, citing "dishonorable conduct on the field of battle."

SCP-XXXX-1-E "Theresa" is based on the trait of sadness, with the underlining trait of hope. SCP-XXXX-1-E has been noted to be very religious, and has expressed interest in doing charity work.

SCP-XXXX-1-F "Marquis" is based in the trait of sadism, with the underlining trait, unexpectedly, being selfless love. SCP-XXXX-1-F will often indulge in petty pranking and insulting of staff and Foundation personnel it has not developed a bond with, however, it has shown an extreme aversion to harming other instances of SCP-XXXX-1, as well has staff it has bonded with. To date, SCP-XXXX-1-F has breached containment a total of 6 times, resulting in the deaths of 17 D-Class personnel. SCP-XXXX-1-F claims it has done so due to a belief those individuals pose a threat to other instances of SCP-XXXX-1 and staff in charge of its care. Has a noted fondness of the British rock band Queen, and has refused to harm others while listening songs composed by the band. Therefore, when running code in SCP-XXXX-2-F, it is recommended that Queen be audible for SCP-XXXX-1-F, to prevent incident.

SCP-XXXX-1-G "Max" is based on the trait of empathy, with the underlining trait of confidence. SCP-XXXX-1-G has shown to be very receptive towards suffering in others, much like SCP-XXXX-1-E, and has often approached these individuals, to provide comfort.

Addendum-1: The Foundation's attention was first brought to SCP-XXXX while Researcher ████ was using the Foundation network, and noticed an unauthorized upload from an unknown source. Before it could be brought to the attention of other staff, SCP-XXXX-1-A opened the upload, establishing contact with personnel. Identifying itself as "Thoth", SCP-XXXX-1-A agreed to be interviewed concerning exactly what it was and why it had contacted the Foundation.
