Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures:
SCP-XXXX and all of its instances are currently contained in SCP-XXXX-A, SCP-XXXX-B, and SCP-XXXX-C. The host bodies must be contained in a 21 x 27 meter room divided into three (3) 7 x 9 meter living spaces. All spaces are to be furnished identically with one (1) twin-sized bed, one (1) nightstand with one (1) touch lamp, and one (1) wooden desk for work and eating. Feeding time occurs two (2) times a day; once at approximately seven-thirty (7:30) a.m. and a second time at seven-thirty (7:30) p.m. SCP-XXXX-A, B, and C are to be fed .9 kilograms of raw ground beef. SCP-XXXX-A, B, and C are not permitted to leave their rooms and roam the facility. Any attempts to escape containment is to be met with harsh punishment. SCP-XXXX’s hosts are to be separated as much as possible. Any attempts of the hosts to converge is to be met with harsh punishment. Harsh punishment consists of less food served at mealtime or forced compliance by electric shock.

SCP-XXXX is a bipedal insectoid entity possessing four thin, hollow arms and two bony legs. It possesses traits similar to that of a Mantodea’s eyes and long, thin neck. All instances of SCP-XXXX not possessing a host have shown that its exoskeleton is of a greenish hue.

Addendum: SCP-XXXX-C shed its host's skin on 13/10/20██. Human skin showed signs of deterioration. Personnel member D-8832 was sent to make experimental contact with the SCP-XXXX. D-88327 suffered from a snapped neck, and higher-class personnel recorded the possession process for the first time.
Possession appears to occur approximately every one to two years, after the host’s skin begins to severely deteriorate. Reasons for possession are still mostly unknown (see Interview 1-A, 1-B).
SCP-XXXX-A has been identified as Marcus ████████, a 21 year old male of American Indian descent. His past occupations are unknown to the foundation. He was last alive wearing a brown jacket, red plaid scarf, dark denim jeans, and black boots. The foundation hypothesizes ██████ was possessed in the autumn or winter of 20██, making SCP-XXXX-A due for repossession within the next coming months.
SCP-XXXX-B is an unidentified male of African-American descent. He appeared to be of at least 23 years of age at the time of possession. He was last wearing a ████ ███ ████ █████ █████, meaning he was most likely possessed during the summer of 20██ and is not due for repossession for approximately eight to ten months.
SCP-XXXX-C has been identified as ███████ ████████, a Caucasian male about 22 years of age at the time of possession. He was last wearing a black shirt and jeans. The foundation approximates that he was last possessed in the summer or autumn of 20██, making SCP-XXXX-C overdue for repossession before the possession of
