Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX must be kept in their cell at all times. SCP-XXXX is to be given anything they ask for within a reasonable measure. SCP-XXXX must be blindfolded at all times, with exception to free time in their cell and testing procedures, in which case authorization to remove it must be given by Level 2 or higher personnel. In the event the blindfold is removed accidentally, all personnel must stay out of SCP-XXXX’s line of sight until the blindfold is replaced. Use of tranquilizers are strictly forbidden in the event of a containment breach, as SCP-XXXX will not fight back or attempt to escape.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an average-looking teenage caucasian male. At first glance, they seem to have no abnormal qualities about themselves, aside from the blindfold they wear. Removing the blindfold initially poses no threat to anyone. However, anyone coming into SCP-XXXX’s line of sight will cause them to enter a state labeled SCP-XXXX-B. Whoever crossed their line of sight and anyone else who does so for the duration of time SCP-XXXX-B is “awake” will be killed in a variety of ways, such as suffocation, heart attack, or on rare occasions, extreme blood loss from the mouth, nose, ears and/or eyes. In this state, SCP-XXXX appears to be in some sort of trance and continues to stare in one direction and remain stationary until no humans remain in their line of sight. This process causes significant emotional distress to SCP-XXXX. The only person so far who cannot “awaken” SCP-XXXX-B is Dr. █████, who has taken on a motherly role for SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX is otherwise very polite and friendly, and enjoys making friends with Foundation personnel. However, due to their dangerous nature, personnel must be reminded that any abnormal requests made from SCP-XXXX must be reported and approved before being fulfilled, such as access to otherwise restricted areas or more freedom from their cell.

Addendum XXXX-01: As stated before, SCP-XXXX is lethal to anyone who is caught in their line of sight. However, tests have proven that SCP-XXXX has no control over this lethality. It instead acts as more of a subconscious reflex.

Addendum XXXX-02: The normal blindfold used by SCP-XXXX has proven to be too fragile, and on several occasions, the string securing the blindfold snapped, leading to the deaths of non-D-Class personnel (see file “The Mess Hall Incident” for details). These incidents have led to the use of a rigid plastic blindfold with a latch instead of a string to better secure the blindfold to SCP-XXXX’s head. No further incidents have been reported.

Addendum XXXX-03 After extensive psychological evaluation, Dr. █████ has requested that SCP-XXXX be put on suicide watch. Approval pending.

Experiment XXXX-A
Subject: D-███
Procedure: Attempted to prevent SCP-XXXX-B from “awakening” through the use of sedatives. (Note that only a small amount of the sedative was used to keep SCP-XXXX conscious.)
Results: After sedatives were administered to SCP-XXXX, D-███ was brought into their line of sight. SCP-XXXX-B was awakened, and D-███ began to suffocate. Although D-███ struggled to breath,they were shown to still be getting oxygen, albeit a very small amount. D-███ suffered from brain damage due to lack of oxygen intake, and was later terminated.
Analysis: Sedatives seem to dull the capabilities of SCP-XXXX-B, but only unconsciousness can completely nullify it.

Experiment XXXX-B
Subject: D-███
Procedure: Attempted to halt the effects of SCP-XXXX-B by removing subject from SCP-XXXX’s line of sight.
Results: A guard was placed behind SCP-XXXX when D-███ entered the room. Guard removes SCP-XXXX’s blindfold and SCP-XXXX-B is “awoken”. D-███ begins to suffocate.
After ten seconds, guard replaces SCP-XXXX’s blindfold. D-███ continues to suffocate and eventually collapses dead.
Results: The effects of SCP-XXXX-B are irreversible once they have taken hold of the subject.
