Item#: SCP-3273

Object class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-3273 is to be housed in a modified Type C Forest Terrarium holding cell with an elevated glass roof accompanied by multiple fluorescent and LED lights. SCP-3273's cell is provided a forest to keep SCP-3273 calm and docile. Above the main holding cell of SCP-3273 is a catwalk provided to allow studying and monitoring of SCP-3273's behavior and anomalous abilities. The catwalk suspended above the cell is to be equipped with strobe lights and loud speakers, which can be used to nullify SCP-3273 in the event it becomes hostile. When it is subdued, it is to be bound with steel wire and relocated to its smaller holding cell. It is to remain there until the object resumes docile behavior. Three security officers are to stay outside SCP-3273's Containment Cell at all times. SCP-3273's cell is to be monitored at all times by at least two personnel of level 2/3273 clearance. No more than two people at once are allowed to enter SCP-3273's holding cell to prevent provoking it.

Note: Even when hostile, SCP-3273 nor instances of SCP-3273-A/SCP-3273-B are to be harmed at all.

Description: SCP-3273 is a sentient entity entirely comprised of wood, with several dark lines going down both the face and body, SCP-3273's body and limbs are incredibly slim and show no indication of muscles, organs, or skin tissue. Various areas of SCP-3273's body contains patches of moss and leaves, on areas such as the back, the back of it's palms, and elbows. The body of SCP-3273 has been noted that it resembles the durability and characteristics of a Redwood tree. SCP-3273 was discovered off the border of [REDACTED] Northern California. SCP-3273's face shows no indication of a mouth or a need for one, as it does not need to digest anything to stay alive. Since SCP-3273 is incapable of eating, many believe SCP-3273 to be using Photosynthesis as a way of gaining energy. It has been noted that SCP-3273 can make noises without requiring vocal cords, such as low moans and humming of certain types of classical music. Under the body of SCP-3273 remains characteristics of a human body, such things as grooves in a strong and sturdy piece of wood, imitating bone, accompanied by roots to imitate veins. SCP-3273 stands at 5 meters in height and weighs 226.7 Kilograms (500 pounds).

SCP-3273 has several of two types of fireflies around it at all times, colored yellow and orange, designated SCP-3273-A and SCP-3273-B. SCP-3273-A and SCP-3273-B perform different roles for the benefit of SCP-3273. The coloring of SCP-3273-A and SCP-3273-B indicates the functions of both SCP-3273-A and SCP-3273-B. Both instances of SCP-3273-A and SCP-3273-B emerge from hundreds of small holes on the back of SCP-3273, acting as a nest for both SCP-3273-A and SCP-3273-B. SCP-3273-A is a yellow lit firefly that acts as searchers and look-outs, investigating the area around SCP-3273 in a 10 meter radius, however returning once the radius' limit has been reached. SCP-3273-A is highly intelligent, understanding and remembering most sounds or sights it hears or sees, seemingly instructing SCP-3273 what to do. SCP-3273-A appears to communicate to SCP-3273 via Morse code by blinking it's light faintly. SCP-3273-B is a smaller than average orange lit firefly that acts as a "medic" for SCP-3273. SCP-3273 when wounded will be aided by SCP-3273-B, SCP-3273-B will hover to the wound and begin to combust over the wound, spreading it's ashes/melted body across the wound, SCP-3273-B will soon die due to the process, as the wound heals over a time frame of 10-20 minutes.

SCP-3273's touch is able to turn anything or anyone into solid wood, any object or item grasped by SCP-3273 will only turn into wood in a small area around the hand, however for anything organic the affects worsen. When an organic creature or substance is touched by SCP-3273 it will be encapsulated in solid wood. SCP-3273 expresses the ability to control a person's emotions, making them grow a connection with SCP-3273, making the victim want to stay with SCP-3273, as they explain it makes them "Happy, comfortable and calm." SCP-3273 proceeds to lure them in to a secluded area, grabbing them swiftly and begin turning them entirely into wood. Every victim entrapped inside the wood are reportedly still living, sentient and aware of their surroundings, but unable to speak or move. Once trapped inside by SCP-3273 the wooden body will burrow deep inside of the victim, connecting with the victim. Once connected their animal cells will begin to change and mutate into plant cells, allowing the use of Photosynthesis and water for energy and food.
