Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: No Foundation Personnel with a Heim Will Index (HWI) of 30 or lower are to be within 15 meters of SCP-XXXX. No Foundation Personnel with a HWI of 55 or lower are to speak with SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX is to be contained within a reinforced sapient anomaly containment unit, with one entrance, only accessible with permission from SCP-XXXX's Head Researcher, Jabez Rose. Should Head Researcher Rose become incapacitated or compromised for any reason, permission is to instead be required by the Site-81 Director until a suitable replacement for Head Researcher Rose is found.

Any subjects found under the influence of SCP-XXXX's anomalous effects are to be non-lethally incapacitated and transported to a secure room away from SCP-XXXX until its effects on the subject cease.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a sapient entity of undefined shape. SCP-XXXX is capable of intelligent speech in both English and Chinook Jargon, despite no obvious mouth or apparatus with which to speak with. SCP-XXXX claims that it is human, and that it is 27 years old. Neither statement has yet to be verified as of 12/13/1974.

SCP-XXXX's anomalous effects occur when a sapient subject comes within 15 meters of SCP-XXXX, or SCP-XXXX directly communicates with a sapient subject. Upon either of these events occurring, the subject will be compelled to assist SCP-XXXX in any and all goals that it (SCP-XXXX) wishes to achieve, regardless of any harm that could come to the subject.

This effect will persist as long as the subject is within proximity of SCP-XXXX, and may persist beyond this if the subject's HWI is particularly low. To date, the longest recorded duration of SCP-XXXX's anomalous effects on a subject while outside of SCP-XXXX's proximity has been 13 days, 4 hours, 22 minutes and 9 seconds.

Addendum: Interview XXXX-04: Below is an interview between SCP-XXXX and Head Researcher Jabez Rose.

<Begin Log>

Researcher Rose sits down in front of the reinforced glass window to SCP-XXXX's interrogation chamber.

Researcher Rose: Am I facing the front of you?

SCP-XXXX: What?…

Researcher Rose: I just, you know…

Researcher Rose gestures vaguely in from of them.

Researcher Rose: Can't exactly tell if I'm staring at your face or your knees or your ass or something.

SCP-XXXX: I don't… know what you… mean…

Researcher Rose: Well, then allow me to ask my first question then: do you know what you look like?

Silence for several seconds. Researcher Rose coughs twice.

SCP-XXXX: Six five, black… hair… brown eyes and… a tattoo of… the date I was married…

Researcher Rose: Well, ah…

Researcher Rose adjusts in their chair.

Researcher Rose: Definitely not what I see.

SCP-XXXX: What do you… see?…

Researcher Rose: Just sort of a, I dunno.

Researcher Rose squints and moves their hands around in an awkward circular motion.

Researcher Rose: It just looks like the absence of something real, like there's something that should be there, but instead there's you. No offense.

SCP-XXXX: I don't… understand…

Researcher Rose: I don't really understand either. I was hoping you could give some leads as to how you became the way you were. And the whole mind control schtick-thing, too.


SCP-XXXX is silent again. Researcher Rose scratches their head.

Researcher Rose: Nothing? Really? No radioactive waste dumps or magical rituals or anything?

SCP-XXXX: I just… need help…

Researcher Rose: Help with what?

SCP-XXXX: Let me… out…

Researcher Rose: Ha! I see what you're doing there, bud. You're not slick. Got a stronger will than you're probably used to, huh?

SCP-XXXX: What?…

Researcher Rose coughs.

Researcher Rose: Listen, I'm not going to let you escape, I'm not going to let you do whatever you want around here. And if you don't answer my questions, I'll just be back tomorrow to ask them again.

SCP-XXXX: I don't…

Researcher Rose: It's fine. I can be patient. We'll see how long you can hold out.


Researcher Rose: What? Do you have an answer that could help us out?

SCP-XXXX: I just… don't… know…

Researcher Rose sighs.

Researcher Rose: Fine. Guess I'll just have to come back tomorrow to see if your memory is jogged.
