Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is currently uncontained. Due to the impracticality of permanent containment by force, containment of SCP-XXXX is limited to having it remain at Foundation facilities. As of present, all attempts to neutralize or contain SCP-XXXX have failed. Efforts to remove SCP-XXXX-B from Foundation networks and databases is ongoing. While the containment procedures for SCP-XXXX may seem lax, it is in no way allowed to do whatever it wants. It is simply cheaper, safer, and more practical to have it contain itself willingly. It has no authority, and is required to obey reasonable commands from Foundation staff. At present day, SCP-XXXX acts like a Thaumiel object for all intents and purposes. It was initially classified as Keter because of its aggression, and remains classified as Keter because it could potentially return to those behaviors in the future.

Should it be necessary to engage SCP-XXXX militarily, combatants should wear visors designed to blur vision enough that writing is indecipherable. Presuming those individuals are not SCP-XXXX-C instances, this will prevent them from becoming one through direct exposure to SCP-XXXX-D. No action is to be taken to remove exposure to SCP-XXXX-D via amnestics from individuals until SCP-XXXX-B has been removed from foundation systems, and a means of permanently inoculating against future exposure has been found.

Currently, SCP-XXXX has an agreement of nonviolence with the Foundation. It will not attack Foundation personnel or property, will follow proper protocol while at Foundation facilities, and will generally not cause problems for the Foundation. In exchange, the Foundation will not attempt to contain it by force, presuming it maintains a degree of secrecy, resides at a Foundation facility, and makes its whereabouts known to the Foundation at all times.

It is of note that while SCP-XXXX may have the potential to be highly destructive, it believes itself to be a hero and protector of humanity. When at a facility that is at is experiencing a containment breach, SCP-XXXX should be notified and its help requested, so as to reinforce its ideas of being a hero and prevent it from creating a highly public incident. SCP-XXXX does not resort to violence when an issue can be resolved peacefully, excepting in response to violence. SCP-XXXX is not a threat unless threatened, and should be treated as an equal by staff in common social interaction. SCP-XXXX does not have a rank as Foundation staff, but is allowed interaction with other anomalous objects presuming it follows correct testing protocol for the item, and has its request approved one week in advance by one Level-04 personnel, or at least three Level-04 personnel for Keter classed objects. Its requests are to be denied if they could facilitate a containment breach.

SCP-XXXX should have at least two healthy D-Class personnel with it at all times to replace its host should it expire. They should be cycled hourly or at SCP-XXXX’s request to prevent SCP-XXXX developing an attachment to them.

Description: In short, SCP-XXXX is a disembodied consciousness that refers to itself as “The Once Evil” and believes itself to be a guardian of the human race. SCP-XXXX can also refer to the consciousness and its current host collectively. SCP-XXXX-A is an object that act as a conduit for SCP-XXXX to gain control of a sapient being and provides additional anomalous abilities to it. SCP-XXXX-C are individuals who are potentially able to be used as host by SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX-A periodically changes between one of fourteen forms, designated SCP-XXXX-A-01 through SCP-XXXX-A-14. SCP-XXXX control of these transformations is limited to manipulating the durations between them, and has a minimum time between transformations of approximately 11 minutes. Each SCP-XXXX-A form provides a different set of anomalous properties to SCP-XXXX. These abilities vary greatly between forms, but never increase the durability or survivability of the host, excepting increased agility. SCP-XXXX-A forms are all black or grey with magenta accents as applicable, and allow SCP-XXXX to be easily identified. A full list of known SCP-XXXX-A instances is included later in this document. No form of SCP-XXXX has ever been seen to sustain damage of any form, or have foreign particles remain between manifestations of the same form.

Regardless of form, the surface of SCP-XXXX is engraved or embroidered with a variety of unidentified symbols that are akin to runes or hieroglyphs. These symbols are designated as SCP-XXXX-D. Any sapient humanoid who is physically capable of using at least one SCP-XXXX-A instance and has viewed any portion of SCP-XXXX-D through any medium are designated as an SCP-XXXX-C instance, a potential future host for SCP-XXXX. This aspect of the anomaly is believed to be memetic in some regard, as application of amnestics to remove exposure remove the effect, but this has yet to be proven.

While an individual is using SCP-XXXX-A, they are essentially “possessed” by SCP-XXXX. In this state, SCP-XXXX has complete control of all systems of their body, and is capable of overriding basic instinctual processes, such as respiration. Removing SCP-XXXX-A from the possession of the host has yet to be achieved safely, and is currently thought to be impossible without severing the body part it is worn or held with, which causes the immediate death of the subject. While SCP-XXXX-A is in a form that requires it be held, a sheathe or holster of some form materializes with it, which it can safely be placed in when not directly in use.

Upon the death of its host, SCP-XXXX-A will revert to SCP-XXXX-A-08 and briefly glow magenta before vanishing, reappearing in the possession of the nearest SCP-XXXX-C instance with a similar visual effect. When its host is incapacitated, severely injured, or simply put into a highly inconvenient position, SCP-XXXX will shut down all of their body systems, killing them, to acquire a more suitable individual. When SCP-XXXX-A appears on a host that is wearing or holding an item in the same space it would occupy, the original item will be displaced to an unknown location until either SCP-XXXX-A changes forms, or the host expires. SCP-XXXX-A instances also appear to change size to a degree to better suit the current host instance.

SCP-XXXX-B is a computer virus that was first introduced to the Foundation system at an unknown date. Its primary function is to display images of SCP-XXXX-D to Foundation personnel. While amnestics are fully capable of undoing the effects of exposure to SCP-XXXX-D, the frequency at which personnel are exposed is overwhelming, estimated at more than thirty times daily. Removal of SCP-XXXX-B is an ongoing process, but it is suspected to itself be anomalous in nature given the consistent lack of progress made by experts in the field. SCP-XXXX-D is widespread across the internet as well, commonly visible in unrelated images in a discreet manner. It has also been seen to commonly appear in graffiti. As of present, an estimated ██% of the human population are expected to be SCP-XXXX-C instances.

History: On █/██/████ SCP-XXXX caused a public disturbance in the town closest to Area-02, utilizing SCP-XXXX-A-02 to vocalize at extreme volumes and inflict minor property damage. It was taken into custody by Foundation forces shortly after it began, and was initially thought to merely be an anomalous human. After being brought inside the facility and placed in a soundproofed Euclid Class holding cell, it utilized SCP-XXXX-A-03 to escape to another part of the facility it had previously been moved past. Security was cleared to engage SCP-XXXX with lethal force, which proved completely ineffective. It proceeded to move around the facility in a highly efficient route, and breached the containment of ██ other anomalies that were dangerous to human life, and non-sapient. After numerous attempts to destroy SCP-XXXX proved unsuccessful, an attempt at diplomacy to preserve the integrity of the site was made. When asked why it was attacking the Foundation, it revealed that it had been informed that “The SCP Foundation captures anomalies and weaponizes them for its own nefarious ends.” After being informed of the actual motives and missions statement of the Foundation, and viewing a significant amount of evidence to support them, realized that the Foundation was not its enemy and ended its attack.
