Orchida

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to remain on Site-██ until further notice due to Addendum XXXX-01. SCP-XXXX is to be placed under constant supervision, with security personnel of level 3 or higher rotating shifts every twenty four hours. After each rotation, personnel are required to undergo immediate psychological evaluation. SCP-XXXX is to be contained within a (5x5x5) meter reinforced, titanium-mesh and enameled-fiberglass alloy viewing area, with a replica similar to the dorm room at [DATA REDACTED]. No personnel under security clearance level 2 should be allowed to enter the viewing area containing SCP-XXXX unless given permission or ordered by a Researcher of level 4 security clearance or higher due to Addendum XXXX-02. Objects within the dorm replica should be replaced, moved, or removed every seventy two hours. Two teams of surveillance personnel of level 3 or higher should patrol the surrounding area every four hours to search for signs of attempted breach. In event of breach, MTF Foxtrot-645 is to be immediately dispersed and all on-site personnel are to be isolated and taken for immediate psychological evaluation as soon as SCP-XXXX is contained. [EXPUNGED: SEE BREACH LOG XXXX-01]

Description: SCP-XXXX is a shadow-like mass of roughly two meters in height and one meter in length and width. The mass changes shapes every eight hours. Shapes include:
A humanoid figure (often detailed as a female)
A group of humanoid figures (also often detailed as female)
A rectangular prism (2x1x1) meters
SCP-XXXX gives off an unpleasant odor until approached, at which case SCP-XXXX begins to smell faintly of the female perfume Mary Kay Journey Eau de Parfum™. Video surveillance of the dorm replica is often blurred and distorted. Childish/girlish laughter is the only vocalizations that have been recorded thus far. Attempts to communicate with SCP-XXXX have yielded no result.

Subjects exposed to SCP-XXXX often describe an odor similar to that of rotting cheese, and feel a compulsive urge to approach the location of the scent. Testing shows possible anomalous memetic effects through use of persuasion in male subjects.[DATA EXPUNGED: SEE TESTING LOG XXXX-01].

RECOVERY LOG
SCP-XXXX was first located at the Community College [DATA REDACTED] when several women filed complaints to college staff of a pungent odor coming from the male dorm room, similar to that of rotting cheese. When investigated, the staff found several male students dead around SCP-XXXX. The staff are believed to have been able to resist SCP-XXXX's memetic properties due to their initial shock of discovering dead students, showing that SCP-XXXX's memetic effects are possibly weak. The story hit local news stations and was intercepted by Foundation personnel who quickly reacted and dispatched Mobile Task Force Tango-033 to the site to contain SCP-XXXX. The story was covered up with that of a school shooting. Stating that a Michael Fisher had been taking illicit drugs and brought a gun on the premises, starting the shooting with his dorm members. SCP-XXXX was brought back to Site-██ under heavy class D sedatives and was contained for testing. All staff and students involved were administered class A-anesthetics and released.

TESTING LOG XXXX-01

Two male D class subjects, D 05-55 and D 05-56, were placed within the containment unit of SCP-XXXX under the supervision of Dr. ████████. Subject D 05-55 described hearing girlish laughter in his head, before hitting his head on the wall of the unit and effectively cracking open his skull. Subject D 05-56 made an exclamation of the strong odor. Dr. ████████ encouraged him to proceed. As D 05-56 entered the replica, visual and auditory contact was lost for several minutes. D 05-56 exited the replica with multiple lacerations and claimed that SCP-XXXX promised to [DATA REDACTED] if he succeeded in breaching the viewing area. Subject D 05-56 was terminated before any action could take place.

TESTING LOG XXXX-01

Two female D class subjects, D 05-72 and D 05-73, were placed within the containment unit of SCP-XXXX under the supervision of Dr. ████████. Both subjects commented of a strong odor. Both were encouraged to proceed to enter the replica. Upon the subjects entering the replica, visual and auditory contact was lost, the only sign of the two subjects being the occasional laughter, and after fifteen (15) minutes, both subjects exited the replica, their bodies laced with lacerations and cuts. Both subjects died of blood loss before exiting the unit.

ADDENDUM XXXX-01
SCP-XXXX was previously located off-site at [DATA REDACTED], encaged by an electric fence. Security level 2 Officer █████ reported in, claiming to hear a faint ringing followed by a girlish laughter before the line was dropped. Power to the fence was removed, followed by almost instantaneous screaming, and the breach of SCP-XXXX. Upon MTF Foxtrot-645 arrival to Site-██, Agent ████ stated “There was a black, shadow-like substance everywhere. On the walls, the floors. Several researchers were located, also covered in the substance. Assumed to be a secretion of SCP-XXXX, the substance procures a faint smell of molten asphalt. It is warm to the touch, and heavily corrosive. All personnel and researchers that came into contact with the substance were terminated upon orders of [DATA REDACTED]”

SCP-XXXX was shortly located nearby at the carpet factory [EXPUNGED], MTF Foxtrot-645 reported three (3) fatalities during the containment of SCP-XXXX.

ADDENDUM XXXX-02
Five (5) male D class subjects entered the viewing area of SCP-XXXX without approval of on-site Researcher ████. Each subject suffered traumatic psychological damage, minor concussions, bruises and cuts to the arms and neck. Subject 01-1 was located inside the dorm replica, missing flesh from his central abdomen region. Subject 01-2 was located outside of Site-██, Agent ███ saw him outside and excecuted him upon sight, believing him to be a trespasser. It is still unknown how he got there. Further testing required to see if SCP-XXXX has inter-dimensional teleportation properties. Subject 01-5 was found standing near SCP-XXXX, laughing and speaking with it. When asked what he spoke about with SCP-XXXX, Subject 01-5 reported to talking about college life, [DATA REDACTED], and his failed marriage. At which point the Subject claims SCP-XXXX began “flirting” with him. Subject was terminated under orders of Dr. ████████. Subjects 01-3 and 01-4 were never recovered.
