Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a 3 m x 4 m x 3 m stable at Site-██. It is to be fed 3 kilograms of hay and given 3 liters of water per day. SCP-XXXX may be allowed outside of its stable, but must be contained within Site-██ at all times. No personnel is allowed to ride SCP-XXXX, unless authorised for testing by Head Researcher Grant.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a Dromedary camel with a camel saddle permanently attached to its back. The saddle has a locked satchel attached to it. The lock which can easily be picked if done while riding SCP-XXXX. There are lines of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs1 on both sides of the saddle. SCP-XXXX and its items have been dated to be around 4590 years old.

X-ray tests have revealed a small box to be in the satchel, containing a gas similar in composition to the venom of the Egyptian cobra. It is thought to function as a trap. Another two objects, an ankh and a scarab charm have been found in the hump of SCP-XXXX. Attempts to remove them surgically have failed, as the charms could not be found in the hump even though they clearly show up on the x-ray scan.

The camel was discovered in ██████, Egypt, after it appeared at the local watering hole with a corpse riding it. SCP-XXXX was retrieved and the corpse sent for post-mortem analysis. All witnesses were administered with a Class-C amnestic.

Individuals attempting to pick the aforementioned lock will become permanently stuck to the saddle. Hereafter referred to as SCP-XXXX-1, SCP-XXXX-1 becomes impervious to any external stimuli (including disease, direct trauma, and otherwise lethal conditions.). No form of contact can be made with SCP-XXXX-1 until they get off the saddle via external force.

SCP-XXXX behaves like a normal Camelus dromedarius until SCP-XXXX-1 rides it, at which point SCP-XXXX will begin moving at a walking pace of around 5 kilometers per hour towards a certain direction. The walking direction differs based on where testing is, and is easily stopped by enclosing SCP-XXXX in a confined space. SCP-XXXX is capable of going around obstacles and has been observed to take the fastest and most convenient route towards its destination. Based on cross reference analysis from several tests, it has been confirmed that the camel's destination is the ██████ Pyramid in ████████.

A site has been established in the area with cooperation from the Egyptian government, under the guise of an archaeological dig site. After conducting an on-site test, it was confirmed the final destination of SCP-XXXX is a previously undiscovered chamber. A stone sarcophagus lies within the chamber, hereafter known as SCP-XXXX-2. The weight of SCP-XXXX-2 has hindered its removal for examination, requiring on-site analysis. There are two prominent holes in the lid, in which the ankh and scarab in SCP-XXXX's hump are meant to fit in.

It is theorized the chamber is the tomb of the Pharoah ██████2. Nearby hieroglyphics predict "the coming of a follower, who will trigger the process that will awaken ██████, at which point he will establish a new age of Seth"3.
