Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Due to the catastrophic damage that pursues upon activating SCP-XXXX, it should be never be touched outside of testing. The airspace around Research Area-██ should remain clear at all times should SCP-XXXX activate. SCP-XXXX should be enclosed in a cube of transparent plexiglass. The room to SCP-XXXX must have 2 reinforced-steel blast doors, in-between them should be a airlock-type room. SCP-XXXX's room should be monitered by security cameras and motion sensitive plates below the floors incase the cameras go out. There should be a minimum of 3 armed guards, 1 inside the airlock control room, and the other 2 outside guarding the chamber. If SCP-XXXX has to be moved, it must be moved using the automated C.L.A.W. machine above the cube. If anyone unauthorized touches SCP-XXXX, they are to be terminated and their body dropped off at Research Camp 3. Any personnel within 1 mile of Research Camp 3 should leave the area so SCP-XXXX-2 may take the body without incident. The body should not be cremated or dismembered during this whole process. If this happens, the subject's ashes and body parts should be placed into a single pile at Research Camp 3. All instances of SCP-XXXX-4 are to be destroyed using incendiary weapons and devices.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a light-blue colored orb, roughly the size of the average male hand. When a human touches SCP-XXXX (now designated SCP-XXXX-1), the orb will begin to glow, emitting a red hue. For exactly 12 hours nothing else appears to happen. However, after the 12 hour mark passes, a male humanoid that appears to be wearing 19th century British clothes will show itself to SCP-XXXX-1. Said humanoid, now referred to as SCP-XXXX-2, is visible to everyone and not just SCP-XXXX-1. Subjects and Researchers report that SCP-XXXX-2 will begin ramble about "The Darkness" and will disappear shortly after. Attempts to terminate and detain the humanoid have been proven unsuccessful as it will return to the subject shortly after removal. Exactly 24 hours after the SCP-XXXX-2's appearance and disappearance, what appears to be a "Red Cloud filled with blood, tissue, and meat" will appear approximately 2.5 Kilometers above SCP-XXXX-1's current location. The Red Cloud (Referred to as SCP-XXXX-3) will then begin to float down SCP-XXXX-1's location, traveling at a steady speed of █ MPH. Once SCP-XXXX-3 gets around 250 meters above SCP-XXXX-1, a sound measuring 147 dBs will emit from the cloud and red "blobs" (Now designated SCP-XXXX-4) will begin to materialize below it. After a minute of this, the cloud will descend from above SCP-XXXX-1's location, going through and collasping all surfaces leading to SCP-XXXX-1, and completely engulf the subject in the cloud. Once SCP-XXXX-1 has been engulfed by SCP-XXXX-3, the cloud will dissipate fully, but will leave any damage left behind untouched, including SCP-XXXX-4 instances. Currently, there is no way of stopping SCP-XXXX-3 from reaching SCP-XXXX-1; pre-termination of the subject and attempts to "blow" away the Cloud have proven to be unsuccessful and SCP-XXXX-3 won't stop until the subject is engulfed. Dismemberment and cremation of the body has proven to be unsuccessful as SCP-XXXX-3 will seek out the body parts and ashes until all traces are gone. Once SCP-XXXX-3 engulfs the subject, SCP-XXXX will no longer emit a red hue.
