Description: SCP-3431 is a group composed of 3 members: SCP-3431-1 a human specimen. Roughly 6 feet and 2 inches tall. He is a caucasian male with blue eyes and blonde hair. He is always seen in a 1960's western film outfit. He also wears a holster with what appears to be a technologically advanced revolver of an unknown make and model. He has requested all staff members refer to him as "Malzahar". No record of this person has been found. He claims to be, as he put it, "a dimension-hopping bounty hunter from the future.". This claim has yet to be investigated. He also makes the claim that SCP-3431-2, or "Murphy" as he refers to it, is his pet. SCP-3431-2 is a small fleshy creature. It resembles a small sack of flesh with a thin layer of translucent hair. SCP-3431-2 is unidentifiable and when asked about the creature Malzahar simply says it is [Redacted]. SCP-3431-2 is located on the skin of Malzahar and is seen moving about on his body. It has not been seen leaving Malzahar but has been recorded moving over his clothing. This doesn't seem to bother Malzahar. How it does this is can only be speculated as attempts to study it have failed due to its extra-dimensional abilities. It has been observed to use many different methods including [Redacted] in order to defend itself and Malzahar. It's ability to defend itself is unknown but this can be tested unlike SCP-3431-2's other abilities. By using numerous methods it can protect itself and Malzahar from any and all forms of harm. Testing with other SCP's is awaiting approval. Recorded methods of protection by SCP-3431-2 include [Redacted]. How it executes these numerous methods is unknown. Questioning Malzahar about these abilities is simply answered with "You'll know eventually…" and a smile. Further investigation awaiting approval. Malzahar seems extremely protective of SCP-3431-2 and asks many questions about the state of [Redacted]. How he has access to that information is unknown as well as how it relates to SCP-3431-2. SCP-3431-3 is what appears to be a bipedal cousin of
