SCP-XXXX: The Self-Immolation Phenomenon
rating: 0+x

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-A is to be kept in a padded room 5m x 5m x 3m within the Light Containment Zone. Those given access to this SCP must have Level 3+ clearance although no personnel may be admitted clearance to go within the containment cell. SCP-XXXX-A must be equipped with a straitjacket at all times in order to prevent himself from attempting self-harm. All requests given from SCP-XXXX must be denied. All people who go into the containment cell must be confiscated from the containment area immediately after entry.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a phenomenon in which a person expresses a strong overwhelming desire to kill oneself. The person effected by this phenomenon, SCP-XXXX-A, will repetitively attempt suicide with no results. SCP-XXXX-A will not be able to be killed or gain any injuries by any means despite the amount of the attempts. The only known way to kill SCP-XXXX-A is to do it manually, which will unfortunately pass on the phenomenon's effect to the one who killed him.

The current SCP-XXXX-A is a man of the name of ██████ Parker. He is a caucasian male of a skinny build with brown hair and brown eyes. Before taken to Site ██ for testing, he was a member of the ████████, New Jersey Police Department. He was effected by SCP-XXXX after killing the former victim in the SCP, ████ Samson, a known serial killer of the town.

SCP-XXXX-A's desire to cease living seems to increase as time goes by. When first brought into the facility he was serene and had a desire to eat and join others in conversation. Currently, he only appears to have a desire for death, as his serenity has left and he now has ceased eating and normal conversation whatsoever.

Those within the same room as SCP-XXXX-A or up extremely close to the door to their containment cell are immediately given a minor desire to kill one effected by the SCP. All SCP personnel who come within that distance away from the cell are immediately confiscated from the room, as the effect appears to wear off as the person goes farther away from the containment cell.

The area of the SCP's effect seems to get larger throughout the containment of SCP-XXXX-A. When he was first brought into Site ██, the effect that causes people to have a desire to kill him would only span 2 feet from him but it has increased dramatically since. Many theorize why this could be. Most people believe the size of the effect increased over time or it increases as he attempts to kill himself although the cause is currently unknown.

The effects of SCP-XXXX is passed on every time SCP-XXXX-A is killed by another. The person who killed him will not present effects immediately. It takes approximately two weeks before the person presents minor depression, increasing to suicidal thoughts within another 90 hours. So far, it appears that the effects might be irreversible.
