One of the entities observed in the office of Dr. █████.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a soundproof steel 10 x 10 m containment cell, with a grated floor leading to a large sewage tank. A set of 6 sprinklers should spray a constant supply of rainwater into the room at all times. A security camera should be present in the cell in which SCP-XXXX is housed.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a collection of between 1 and 8 mummified humanoid entities ranging from 2 to 3 meters in height. SCP-XXXX will only manifest within approximately 100 meters of an area in which rainfall is occurring. If rainfall is not occurring, all entities that constitute SCP-XXXX will disappear and reappear in a random location in which substantial precipitation is taking place. The entities regularly emit low-pitched vocalizations which cause seizures in roughly 5% of humans that are within audible range of SCP-XXXX. When passed through a spectrogram, the vocalizations appear as distorted cuneiform symbols, many of which are not found in any texts to date. Attempts to translate these symbols have been unsuccessful. The cuneiform text that is translatable mentions the Sumerian god Ishkur, bringer of storms and rain, very frequently. Mentions of a 'necessary sacrifice' are also made.

If a strong thunderstorm is occurring near SCP-XXXX, the entities' vocalizations will increase in pitch and a low hum is emitted from the storm. This humming noise does not appear to have any effect on living organisms, but it usually occurs alongside a sudden change in wind direction or a dramatic increase in the frequency of lighting strikes.

SCP-XXXX was first observed by the Foundation in 199█, during a rainstorm. 3 entities were observed standing or drifting slowly in the office of Dr. █████, vocalizing loudly. █ personnel within audible range of SCP-XXXX began to spasm violently.

Addendum XXXX-01: Weather records discovered recently at an archaeological site █ kilometers southwest of █████████, Iraq dating back to 3300 BCE use a previously unknown term similar to the word decoded from SCP-XXXX's vocalizations in conjunction with mentions of heavy rainfall and the flooding of the Tigris River following a prolonged drought. The possibility that these records refer to instances of SCP-XXXX is being considered. In addition, several photos taken during severe weather outbreaks in northern England, Ukraine, and █████ show anomalies similar in appearance to SCP-XXXX.
