Halbeorn-SCP "THE SMITH"

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a standard humanoid containment cell. SCP-XXXX is allowed access to and use of a forge and smelter and should not be prevented from their usage for more than a week [see addendum A]. When using the forge, SCP-XXXX is to be monitored, and all instances of SCP-XXXX-1 produced are to be noted. Once a month raw material for the construction of instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be delivered. Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 may be removed for study, though a proportional amount of raw material must be added for that month if this is done.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a man of Caucasian descent, found in a cave in the mountains of [REDACTED] after field agents investigated local stories of a man who had lived in the mountains for centuries. SCP-XXXX was found in a cave surrounded by instances of SCP-XXXX-1 that it had made over the years. SCP-XXXX was taken into custody without a struggle, and has since proved fairly cooperative with foundation efforts aside from the incident marked out in Addendum A.
SCP-XXXX is a smith and metalworker, estimated to be at least 2500 years old. It claims that a prophecy was laid upon it to “craft the greatest blade ever wrought.” For this reason it must at least once a week create an instance of SCP-XXXX-1, which upon testing have been found to possess durability far beyond what their material make up should allow. SCP-XXXX will often melt down these instances after testing them upon himself after their making, and reuse the material for further metalworking.
SCP-XXXX’s longegivity is explained by it as a result of the prophecy over it. According to its own statements, corroborated by testing, any injury or restraints that would prevent the ultimate fulfillment of the prophecy are eventually overcome by SCP-XXXX.

Addendum: A test was carried out to see the limits of the prophetic compulsion on SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX was sedated and restrained in its holding cell. After the usual week had passed, SCP-XXXX began to awaken, whereupon more increased doses of sedative were applied. Sedative concentration was increased over a course of two months, until it was determined that further sedation would be a strain upon available resources. The level of sedation held steady until such a time as SCP-XXXX woke up. SCP-XXXX’s bodily strength then seemed to increase temporarily to a level sufficient to break the restraints upon it, whereupon it walked over to the forge and began to create an instance of SCP-XXXX-1. As a result of this test, it has been theorized that should the need arise it would theoretically be possible to keep SCP-XXXX in a state of constant sedation, though it has been deemed more cost effective to allow the crafting and monitoring of instances of SCP-XXXX-1.
