Item #: SCP-XXXX
Object Class: Keter
Special Containment Procedures: All Foundation personnel affected by SCP-XXXX are to be demoted to E-Level and quarantined until symptoms are unnoticeable. Personnel which are not cured by the third stage of the infection are to be terminated at all costs, no matter how much of an important role
Description: SCP-XXXX is a pathological form of skin growth caused SCP-XXXX-1 by a yet unknown life form, SCP-XXXX-1 appears to have parasitic-esque tendencies, since it does not lay eggs, it has been proven not to be a parasite. When a subject has SCP-XXXX-1 in their system, SCP-XXXX-1 skin cell growth to increase, creating an extra lay of epidermis-esque flesh. The infection is split into 7 stages.
Stage one: Initial infection usually begins with symptoms similar to a Common Cold; subjects will experience light-headedness and in extreme cases, fainting. Usually lasts 1-3 weeks.
Stage two: Small lesions, bruises and cuts will heal abnormally quickly during this stage, the intestines will seem to produce a small extra layer of flesh; if this extra level is above 5mm victims must be quarantined. Almost always lasts 1-1.5 months.
Stage three: All wounds that stay above the epidermis heal within one week, CAT scans show a layer of dermis-type flesh on the digestive system, brain, lungs, heart and bone. Phase lasts around 2 months.
Stage four: Extreme regenerative tendencies activate at this stage; any and all wounds above the hypodermis fully heal within a day or less and in extreme cases, sometimes even to the hypodermis, the epidermis produces a an extra layer of skin, causing extreme rise in heat, weight gain and (potentially) paralysis.
Stage five: All organs (including bones, muscles and ligaments) produce a layer of flesh-like skin above it, causing the organs to slow down and sometimes, stop working entirely. Lasts 1-2 weeks
Stage six: Organs are fully encased within the layer of skin-like flesh previously mentioned. Very few people make it past this stage, as organ development slows down to a near fatal level. Lasts 2-3 weeks
Stage seven: All instances of the skin-like flesh start to slowly “rot” away; victims show signs that this is an extremely painful process, attempting to scream whilst his/her flesh slowly falls off. The end result appears to be a gelatinous, liquid-like pile of the victim’s flesh, any organic matter which touches the pile is immediately subjected to the symptoms stage three, but the infection is much quicker; in extreme cases, each stage lasts five minutes. Inorganic matter is encased within the bundle of flesh; it is unknown what causes the presumably dead organic matter to have this effect.
