Hello! Just relatively new user with a few ideas. Whether or not they're good ideas has yet to be seen. Feel free to leave constructive criticism.

This is a very early draft, and subject to change will be drastically changed as I spend more time working on it/receive more feedback. Suggestions and constructive criticism are welcome.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be stored in a locked, 4.5 m by 4.5 m by 2.5 m containment cell, mounted on the wall directly opposite the entrance. The cell is to be illuminated with 9.5 watt LED bulbs, which are to be replaced every 5 years. The floor of the containment cell must fitted with silver plates, which may be electrified using a switch outside of the containment cell. 1 D-class personnel is to remain restrained in the containment cell, equipped with ocular speculum to maintain constant visual contact. D-class personnel are to be changed every 6 hours under the supervision of 2 or more armed members of security staff. All lights within the containment cell must have at least 2 backup power sources, which are to be activated immediately in the event of a power failure. Should any instances of SCP-XXXX-2 manifest, they must be terminated by fatal electric shock and incinerated immediately.

Description: SCP-XXXX appears to be a framed 45 cm by 60 cm photographic print of a specimen of Canis lupus, or gray wolf. Despite extensive searches, no additional copies of this image have been found. The image is in a black, 3.5 cm thick, wooden frame with a deep red, 4 cm mount. The image itself is printed on standard photographic paper. A tag is affixed to the lower right corner of the frame, which reads "Susi Rutto, […] (Finnish)". Numerous tests have revealed no anomalous properties in the materials composing SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX seems to resist all forms of observation. Video surveillance and/or recording devices within visual range of the object completely cease functioning after approximately five minutes. All forms of electric lighting deteriorate at approximately twice the normal speed when in the presence of SCP-XXXX. Subjects viewing the object universally report a feeling of unease, accompanied by (or resulting in) a strong compulsion to look away. Subjects who resist this compulsion and continue to observe SCP-XXXX report symptoms of asthenopia, the severity of which is directly proportional to the length of observation.

If removed from human observation for approximately thirty seconds, instances of SCP-XXXX-2 will begin to manifest. SCP-XXXX-2 appear to be gray wolves, similar to the specimen depicted in SCP-XXXX. All instances of SCP-XXXX-2 manifested thus far have exhibited high levels of aggression, as well as symptoms of a wide variety of infectious diseases. The number of SCP-XXXX-2 that appear seems to be dependent upon the size of the space in which they appear. The means by which SCP-XXXX-2 appear are unknown, as observation of their appearance has so far proven impossible, as any cameras within visual range of the object briefly cease functioning during the event. SCP-XXXX-2 have so far exhibited no anomalous properties, and appear to be, for all intents and purposes, completely normal wolves. However, whether or not these specimens are healthy seems to vary, with some exhibiting symptoms of diseases such as rabies, canine distemper, infectious canine hepatitis, [REDACTED]. How these diseases are contracted is still unknown.

Addendum: SCP-XXXX first came to the Foundation's attention after an incident involving multiple packs of SCP-XXXX-2 at ███████████ High School on ██/██/████. The Foundation recovered SCP-XXXX from the school's main office after numerous specimens of SCP-XXXX-2 appeared in the school after the object remained unobserved overnight. One specimen exhibited symptoms of [REDACTED] contamination, and the property was subsequently decontaminated, closed, and destroyed along with any individuals potentially contaminated during the incident.
