Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object class: Euclid

Containment procedures: SCP-XXXX is expected to still be active and is currently uncontained. If a person matching SCP-XXXX's appearance is identified, 05-07 is to be notified.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a humanoid entity that was a member of the SCP Foundation Ethics Committee from 1979-10-14 to 2004-02-04. SCP-XXXX first came into contact with the Foundation after it survived close contact with [[SCP-076|SCP-076-02]] during a containment breach in 1972.1 SCP-XXXX had attained its doctoral in Ethics at the University of Toronto at the time, and claimed that its family was killed by SCP-076.2 SCP-XXXX was employed by the SCP-Foundation on 1972-04-28 and became an intern ethical supervisor of Mobile Task Force Omega 7. Background investigations at the time showed no irregularities.

SCP-XXXX was appointed as Junior Ethics Supervisor at Site ██ on 1973-11-11 and as Site Ethics Adviser on 1977-01-07, working directly under Site Director Liefeld. During this period, SCP-XXXX showed signs of knowing classified information regarding the Foundation on at least three distinct occasions. These incidents were not recognized as breaches of information at the time, and were not reported. SCP-XXXX was promoted as a board member of the Foundation-wide Ethics Committee in 1979 by 05-07, under recommendation by Site Director Liefeld.

SCP-XXXX did not visually age during its career at the Foundation. This was not identified as abnormal until SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties were discovered in 2004, when facial recognition software matched SCP-XXXX's face to that of early 19th century politician Edwin Hardy. After being notified, Site Director Liefeld confined SCP-XXXX to its room and interviewed the entity.

SCP-XXXX: I suppose the jig is up.

Liefeld: What is going on, Jason? Do you know anything about this?

<Site Director Liefeld produces a photograph of 19th century politician and places it on SCP-XXXX's desk>

SCP-XXXX: Yes, that's me

Liefeld: Are you immortal?

SCP-XXXX: I have existed for about three hundred years now, yes. I don't think I'll be dying any time soon.

Liefeld: Why did you lie to the Foundation? There is a place on staff for anomalous humans as well. Jason, we have to fire you now.

SCP-XXXX: Sam, I would have been contained if I had told the truth. I am an SCP.3 I am not human, Sam.

Liefeld: Then what are you? Why are you here?

SCP-XXXX: My goal was always to rise in ranks in this organisation. I knew I would be discovered eventually; I'm glad I managed to stay here as long as I did. I think I've done great things here.

Liefeld: What did you do?

SCP-XXXX: I spoke on behalf of the other sentient SCPs.

Liefeld: What?

SCP-XXXX: We didn't have a voice, Sam. My people never had a voice. You decide what is right and wrong but you never ask us. No, not you; the Foundation I mean. I exist just to give my people a vote, even if it's only one. It is what is right.

Liefeld You've voted in favor of the neutralization of ████! I was there when you presented your argument!

SCP-XXXX: SCP-████ is a danger to everyone. Just because I give my fellow scips a voice, does not mean that I will allow a dangerous psychopath to kill dozens more people. That's not me, Sam. In all of my advice, I have never weighed the life of a single scip higher than that of a group of humans. You know that! But some of my colleagues don't value the wellbeing of my kind at all. I can't just stand back and let them dissect me.

Liefeld: Jason, I can't talk in your favor. You know that. I am too involved. The 05s will decide what to do with you, and they're going to contain you when they hear you speak like this.

SCP-XXXX: That's fine, Sam. It's over. Just go and report to your superior. There's nothing more I can do at the Foundation.

Closing Statement: Site Director Liefeld reported SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties to 05-07 at 17:38 by e-mail. Site Director Liefeld was reprimanded for approaching an anomalous entity despite being a B Class staff member.

Incident XXXX-1
At 19:45, an hour and a half following the interview with Site Director Liefeld, "Jason Emmerson"'s body abruptly converted into silicon dioxide (sand). The entity was designated SCP-XXXX the following day and current containment procedures were set in place.

Addendum:
Four days following Incident XXXX-1, the Foundation Ethics Committee released the following notice:

Inspired by the work and dedication of Dr. Emmerson [sic], an Ethics Committee member has proposed to allow SCP entities to become advisers of the Committee. This proposal, formally described in Document EP-19468, was put to a vote within the Ethics Committee, but failed to find a majority approval. Five of the nine members voted against the proposal.
