Waiting for

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures:

SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a basic living containment unit with standard furnishings, special containment instructions are in place if any abnormalities occur concerning Event XXXX-A. Personnel are not permitted to enter the containment unit for any period longer than 10 minutes.


SCP-XXXX appears to be a Caucasian male, weighing 75 pounds, 1.8 meters tall, and looks to be approximately in it’s late 40s, dressed in a white turtleneck sweater and a grey suit jacket. SCP-XXXX is friendly and mild-tempered, and seems not to require much of any stimulus. However, any attempts at conversation directed at SCP-XXXX lead to vague and enigmatic answers at most, usually limited to small nods or a smile. The only reoccurring topic of note seems to be centered around SCP-XXXX’s purpose, that being that it is “waiting for Arthur ███████.”

SCP-XXXX has several passive actions when observed, most notably routinely looking at SCP-XXXX-01 at precisely 23: █ █: █ █ each day. SCP-XXXX-01 appears to be a gold watch, with the only observable anomaly being the 11 and 12 places on the watch face are reveresed. Carbon dating on SCP-XXXX-01 reveals it to be from around the 19██s. When SCP-XXXX is questioned about the nature of SCP-XXXX-01, or the routine checking of it, it repeats that it is “seeing when Arthur ███████ is coming.”

Any further questions about the identity of Arthur ███████, or what will happen when Event XXXX-A (Arthur ███████ “coming”) occurs, leads to more of aforementioned smiles and nodding, without disclosure any subsequent information. Numerous census researches have been conducted to locate any being, human or otherwise, named Arthur ███████ or some name similar, but no results have been found. SCP-XXXX seems to have normal vitals, yet tests reveal it to inexplicably date over 4.5 billion years old, and registers 17.7 µSv on the radioactivity scale.
