Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a humanoid containment chamber lined with various highly-density sugar-based foodstuffs, and medicinially rendered incapable of complex thought with sugar-coated Grade-2 Neural Suppressant Tablets (2 with every meal). SCP-XXXX needs to be restrained with bonds made of SCP-XXXX-C-11 to prevent accidental touched or actions outside of testing. SCP-XXXX-C-1 can also be used to make protective floor coverings if SCP-XXXX must be transported to a new location without his containment chamber. There should be a minimum of two guards who are familiar with SCP-XXXX's anomalous abilities stationed outside the doorway at any time, and each assigned guard should be equipped with weapons and body armor armor either treated with or composed externally of SCP-XXXX-C-1. SCP-XXXX is to be fed any expired or undesired snack foods from the Site-19 break room, although if these items are unavailable, any non-hazardous materials or items may be used instead. Important objects or people of any kind are not to be brought within the containment chamber without express permission from the on-site research head. If any object is modified by SCP-XXXX, it is to be immediately submitted for anomaly testing and subsequently incinerated or stored for potential consumption.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an obese Caucasian male, about 53 years old and with no visible hair. SCP-XXXX has an extensive criminal record in the States of Texas and Oklahoma, with charges ranging from manslaughter, and assault to murder, and is widely believed by Foundation investigators to be a prolific Serial Murderer responsible for more than 240 deaths in the past 22 years. As such, reasonable levels of caution should be exercised in the presence of the entity. SCP-XXXX displays the ability to replace most matter it either touches directly or comes within 2 millimeters of with various candies and sugar based foods that happen to be similar in size, color and/or shape. These candies are classified as anomalous as they have a variety of unique anomalous properties including but no limited to: extreme pH levels, unnatural toughness or lack thereof, and otherwise "impossible" effects no conventionally associated with candy or edible materials. Any non-candy material is immediately immediately anomalously effected upon contact with SCP-XXXX's saliva, regardless of its composition or state of matter. This trait allows the Foundation to provide SCP-XXXX whatever materials2 happen to be present in excess as sustenance, although perishables from the break room are generally used for safety reasons. Consumption of candy created by SCP-XXXX generally has no unusually detrimental effects on humans aside from those normally associated with candy3, although depending on the intentions of SCP-XXXX at the time of conversion, some candies pose a severe health risk to non-anomalous individuals as the consumption can occasionally result in undesirable effects ranging from mild respiratory discomfort, to complete dissolution of the mouth and throat, to even complete candy-petrification of the body. Some candies are created inside of living organisms by replacing various organs or fluids, and others do not require consumption to show their damaging or otherwise hazardous effects. Any candies deemed to belong to either of these groups are to be disposed of immediately as Type-4 Hazardous Waste upon identification.

SCP-XXXX has consistently displayed the ability to anomalously replace weaponry within roughly 10 meters of itself with various types and combinations of candy, notably farther than its usual ability reaches. This effect has been observed for a variety of firearms, melee weapons and explosives, and even one potential SCP that was awaiting classification4. There is only one currently discovered method to block SCP-XXXX's ability within that distance, which is to completely coat or encase the object with candy or other substances with high concentrations of sugar, as SCP-XXXX's abilities are incapable of manifesting through objects made of or coated/lined with candy and or sugary food. No other methods that have been tested have resulted in success; SCP-XXXX is capable of replacing a loaded handgun inside a lead-lined 7 cm thick steel safe with candy nearly instantaneously, even without being made aware of the weapon's presence. It is currently unknown how this anomalous effect occurs, or if SCP-XXXX is even aware of its existence, though further testing may provide evidence of an understandable process.
