Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe/Euclid/Keter (indicate which class)

Special Containment Procedures: [Paragraphs explaining the procedures]

Description: SCP-XXXX is a metallic ring composed entirely of INVAR 36 iron-nickel alloy whose diameter is 0.85mm. Whenever a human being wears SCP-XXXX in one of their fingers, they will become able to hear and converse with an unseen interlocutor henceforth referred to as SCP-XXXX-1.

SCP-XXXX-1 can only be heard by the individual currently wearing SCP-XXXX. Unlike previously assumed, it is currently believed that SCP-XXXX-1 in an independent entity that may be communicated with through SCP-XXXX via anomalous means as opposed to a mind-effecting phenomenon. The whereabouts of SCP-XXXX-1 are unknown.

As disclosed by SCP-XXXX-1, at any point during a conversation with it, the individual wearing SCP-XXXX may request to be "driven insane" (sic) for a chosen amount of time. Voicing such request while wearing SCP-XXXX will result in a Ivory-Floyd Event, which encompasses the following:

  • The individual wearing SCP-XXXX, now reclassified as SCP-XXXX-2, will begin to exhibit symptoms commonly associated with an wide array of psychiatric disorders.
  • After the stipulated amount of time has elapsed, all symptoms will subside.
  • As long as SCP-XXXX was not removed from SCP-XXXX-2 during the course of the Ivory-Floyd Event, SCP-XXXX-2 will also become able to induce anomalous endokinetic phenomena compatible with Class II to IV Hume-Manipulating entities.

Instances of SCP-XXXX-2 are otherwise unaffected by SCP-XXXX's properties.


Yes, Doctor (pause) Vincent, correct?

That's right, yes. I was hoping we could discuss the process in a little bit more detail this time.

Of course. The (pause) process. That is one way to put it.

You said something about… Lending a hand. That soon people like the SCP-XXXX-2 subjects would be needed. Care to be more specific on that?

I do not much about you organization, Vicent, but I do know you, uh, frequently encounter things mundane methods would fall flat against.

You could say so.

It makes sense then, doesn't it?
