Eastwood Forest

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Automated monitoring and detection systems are set up both in Eastwood Forest and surrounding towns and small settlements. Statistical analysis programs are configured to detect abnormal disappearance patterns in the area.

If SCP-XXXX-A or SCP-XXXX-B are discovered by the monitoring system, protocol XXXX-Ocras should be applied immediately. Note that the protocol steps differ depending on the numbers of SCP-XXXX-A discovered. Automated monitoring systems are configured to suggest the optimal protocol variation.

Description: SCP-XXXX-A are sentient humanoid entities. To this date, only four entities of this class were encountered, and all four were terminated by Foundation teams. SCP-XXXX-A are 2 to 2.3 meter tall, and similar in form and proportion to an average adult human of that height. The primary differences consist of pale white body, highly efficient musculature, lack of limb bones (replaced by specialized muscle tissue), lack of body fat, fused ribcage, and a exoskeleton faceplate. See also: Addendum-1.

SCP-XXXX-A were discovered during the inquiry into statistically significant disappearance patterns in several settlements surrounding Eastwood Forest (located in [REDACTED]). Initial encounter with the entities caused a complete loss of containment team due to high combat capabilities of SCP-XXXX-A and inefficiency of standard issue firearms. Subsequently, capture attempt by MTF Kappa-7 "Forest Ghosts" ended in termination of all four entities with no other casualties.

Further investigation of the forest had uncovered a SCP-XXXX-A camping place, containing among other items Document-XXXX-1 and 12 human corpses. All corpses were missing eyes, parts of the cerebrum and certain internal organs.

The "gate" mentioned in the log was never discovered, and designated SCP-XXXX-B. The home location of SCP-XXXX-A was designated SCP-XXXX-C. The organization responsible for the exploration team was designated SCP-XXXX-F.

Following the analysis of the "Exploration Log" above, eyes of SCP-XXXX-A were studied in more detail. The study has discovered that level of eyeball decomposition exceeded that of SCP-XXXX-A corpses. Moreover, the eye sockets were not a natural features of the SCP-XXXX-A bone faceplates, but were carved artificially. The eye nerves behind the sockets were significantly atrophied, and were covered in an unknown substance hypothesized to be remains of a symbiotic organism serving as a bridge between the internal eye nerves and the eyeball.

DNA extracted from the eyeballs matched human corpses discovered at SCP-XXXX-A campsite.
