Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Containment of SCP-XXXX is centered around public disinformation. Mobile Task Force Gamma-5 ("Red Herrings") is to monitor SCP-XXXX for significant deviations in new SCP-XXXX-2 instances on a daily basis. Any signs of such a trend warrant investigation into domesticated animals demographics on said day, and areas of noticeable fluctuation in disappearance of domestic animals are to be investigated for anomalous influence by SCP-XXXX-1. If anomalous influence is confirmed, SCP-XXXX-1 is to be questioned and reprimanded, and false information on the fate of domestic animals is to be dispersed as necessary to ensure continued secrecy of SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX-1 is implanted with a subdermal tracking device and is to remain within SCP-XXXX. The wooden fence surrounding SCP-XXXX has been vertically extended, repaired, and reinforced with high-voltage electric wiring. However, SCP-XXXX-1 has thus far been cooperative with the Foundation, and risk of direct containment breach is negligible.

Description: SCP-XXXX​ is a ranch style house and approximately 14km x 14km forest clearing in northern China, roughly 300km from the nearest civilization. SCP-XXXX is separated from the heavily forested surroundings by non-anomalous wooden fencing, and human subjects are able to leave SCP-XXXX with no complications. Sourrounding the house in the center of SCP-XXXX are several plastic dispensers that provide distilled water or various food related items, including raw beef, raw chicken, several species of fish, small fruits and berries, and small nuts and legumes.

SCP-XXXX-1 is a human male, likely of eastern Asian origin, 145cm in height, and stocky build that resides within SCP-XXXX. Biologically, SCP-XXXX-1 is consistent with a physically typical human male in his mid-fifties, and while SCP-XXXX-1 claims repeatedly to be well over 12,000 years old, due to the lack of records from said time period, this cannot be verified at this time. SCP-XXXX-1 is fluent in Mandarin, is conversational in the Wu, Gan, Xiang, Hakka, Yue, and Min dialects as well as Mongolic, and has a rudimentary understanding of English. SCP-XXXX-1 is generally amiable towards humans and shows appreciation for being around commonly domesticated animals1. While SCP-XXXX-1 is not uncooperative with the Foundation, SCP-XXXX-1 shows aversion and abrasiveness to discussing or referring to its anomalous effect.

SCP-XXXX-2 refers to an estimated 300,000 instances of various domesticated animals, all of which fall under species that SCP-XXXX-1 reacts positively towards. Instances of SCP-XXXX-2 roam within the boundaries of SCP-XXXX, demonstrating normal behavioral patterns for their species. Of note is that an overwhelming proportion (~80%) of SCP-XXXX-2 instances are near or past the expected biological life span for their species. In addition, SCP-XXXX-2 instances have not been observed to age or contract disease.

SCP-XXXX's secondary anomalous properties, aside from the large number of domesticated animals present, result from a certain behavior occasionally shown by said species (henceforth labeled Exodus Events). During an Exodus Event, one or more domesticated animals under the care of a human will attempt to flee their current residence and navigate towards the nearest ranch style house with an accessible portal (doors, windows, chimneys, etc.). If said house does not exist within a certain range of the subject's residence (determined to be variable due to SCP-XXXX-1's effect, but averaging around 14km in radius), the subject will navigate towards the nearest pet-adapted door installation, such as those commonly found in homes sheltering domesticated animals. Failing this, the subject will abandon the Exodus event and return to normal behavior. If the subject succeeds in moving through a suitable portal, they will be instantaneously transported to the inside of the house within SCP-XXXX. From here, the subject will find that the portal used to access SCP-XXXX is replaced with the front door of the ranch style house, and the subject can exit said house into the clearing. Closed-system testing has suggested that Exodus Events are more common when the subject's residence also houses small children or any other sapient being with comparatively low mental faculty. Subjects will also prefer to execute an Exodus Event when not under observation of other sapient or sentient beings, or otherwise attempt to be discreet in doing so.

SCP-XXXX-1 has openly confessed to influencing the frequency and success rates of Exodus Events. All information regarding this influence is directly from SCP-XXXX-1, and as such should be approached with skepticism. Supposedly, SCP-XXXX-1 has the capability to create duplicates of itself in positions to assist potential SCP-XXXX-2 instances complete an Exodus Event. Although this procedure is poorly understood, generation of said duplicates of SCP-XXXX-1 results in significantly lowered temperature in the surrounding area, suggesting that SCP-XXXX-1 draws local heat energy in to create duplicates of itself (though wildly deviant from currently understood laws of energy conservation). These duplicates will perform simple tasks to assist the potential SCP-XXXX-2 instance in reaching SCP-XXXX. Methods of assistance by these duplicate instances include opening portals, luring subjects to compatible portals, and physically moving subjects.

Interview Log XXXX-A:

Interviewed: SCP-XXXX-1

Interviewer: Researcher Xavrew

Foreword: This log is recorded approximately 48 hours after the discovery of SCP-XXXX's and SCP-XXXX-1's anomalous effects, and conducted to confirm the link between the phenomena observed and SCP-XXXX. At this time, updated containment protocols are being designed to cope with the widespread nature of said effects. This interview was conducted within SCP-XXXX and translated to English from Mandarin.

Xavrew: Afternoon, SCP-XXXX-1.

SCP-XXXX-1: Best to you, friend. Have a seat, I hear that you have something to discuss.

Xavrew: Indeed. Over the last several days, we have noticed unusual patterns in the population of domestic animals within SCP-XXXX. Specifically, the rate of population growth here is increasing and there has been a noticeably increased number of reports of pet disappearances around the world. We—

SCP-XXXX-1 appears agitated.

SCP-XXXX-1: Is it not glorious? Do you see what I have accomplished for them? What else could I have done? Let the world discover what I was forced to?

Xavrew: Please, SCP-XXXX-1, control yourself. This outburst is unlike you. Your cooperation is essential for the benefit of both parties involved here.


Xavrew: Indeed, I am here to question your involvement in these incidents, as your property labels you as the most likely candidate. We are under the impression that you have assisted in the transport of domesticated animals to SCP-XXXX. If this is—

SCP-XXXX-1: I could not put them through what I had to experience. They do not deserve to feel that way.

Xavrew:…if this is the case, we may have to put additional containment procedures in place. Please keep in mind that we have the capability to disrupt any properties you may utilize to antagonize us.

SCP-XXXX-1: My family was the first to be with them. The gods you see among us. The dogs I see among you. We were their disciples. And they were mortal.

SCP-XXXX-1: I was a young boy, no more than seven years old. I could not cope with the loss of my idol. I simply could not allow this to be. With a vengeance, I resigned to hermitage. I waited for my gods to return. And now, they are coming back to me. I know what the children feel. The feeling of losing one you love beyond your family is irreplaceable. I saved them. Never more will they feel the sorrow of a mortal becoming the past. They are now as they should be, immortal and immaculate.

Xavrew: Thank you, SCP-XXXX-1. This information will be of great use to us. Please, in the future, we recommend you not interfere with civilian life.

SCP-XXXX-1: I do nothing of the sort. I protect civilian life beyond a scope of what you could ever comprehend.
