Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-1 is currently held within a standard humanoid containment cell at Site-17. -1's cell requires no unusual furnishings beyond the basic requirements for non-anomalous human habitation, though a bed of at least North American Queen size has been shown to be effective at discouraging aggressive actions on the part of SCP-XXXX-2, and is currently installed as an incentive for further cooperation on the part of -1.

SCP-XXXX-1's containment cell is to be equipped with standard concealed video and audio recording devices; however, pursuant to Disciplinary Incident Review XXXX-53-7, access to footage recorded from these devices between the periods of 2200 and 0600 are to require written O4 approval. Should at any time SCP-XXXX-2 begin to deviate from its established pattern of behavior, and attempt to breach containment with the use of force, these Special Containment Procedures are to be revised pending review of the observed maximum force capabilities of -2.

Description: SCP-XXXX-1 is a male humanoid of Puerto Rican descent, born ████ ██████in 19██. -1 exhibits no anomalous properties or capabilities aside from manifestations of SCP-XXXX-2, which appear to be beyond its control.

SCP-XXXX-2 is a spacetime anomaly of an as yet undetermined nature, completely imperceptible by all non-anomalous Foundation technology, described by -1 as his boyfriend ██████ ████, a deceased individual who records show died in a car accident on 12/██/20██ in ██████, Florida, USA. When shown photographs of the late ██████ ████ taken shortly before his death, -1 asserts that the appearance of -2 is largely identical.

SCP-XXXX-2's primary anomalous effect is the manipulation inanimate objects in a manner consistent with the use of human hands; however, there have been no confirmed incidents of -2 manipulating objects outside of the immediate vicinity of -1, generally limiting its field of effect to -1's containment cell. -2 has shown no capability or interest in interacting with any individual other than -1. It is undetermined at this time whether -2 is physically capable of acting outside of the immediate vicinity of -1. Further research into the nature of -2, and the extent of its independence, is temporarily suspended pending O4 review.

SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 are capable of communicating with each other in a manner consistent with typical human interaction, with -1 reporting being able to see, smell, hear, and touch -2 as if it were physically present. The majority of these perceptions on the part of -1 could be interpreted skeptically as typical hallucinations; thus, anomalous communication between -1 and -2 is best understood when -2 initiates contact with -1, particularly by touch.

To observers, these interactions appear as SCP-XXXX-1 spontaneously responding to sensory inputs when no corresponding source is apparent. The most credibly anomalous of these interactions comprise physical altercations between -1 and -2. To date, -1 has suffered one (1) minor facial bruise to the left cheek consistent with an open-handed slap, suffered during Recovery Interview XXXX (see below), as well as four (4) bruised bite marks to the left side of the neck, regarding which -1 has not been forthcoming.

SCP-XXXX-1 is often observed in its containment cell physically gesturing in the direction of empty air, especially during periods in which manifestations of SCP-XXXX-2 are registered by research staff. There have been no reported incidents in which -2 has interacted with any other individual, either within the immediate vicinity of -1 or otherwise. Nor have any staff "bumped into" -2, either inadvertently or in the course of Foundation research.
