Description: SCP-XXXX is a species of Vespa mandarinia japonica, the Japanese hornet, the sting of which renders the subject unconscious for between 5 to 16 days. after which the subject will display a marked increase in intelligence as well as lateral reasoning, the sting of SCP-XXXX also seems to cure any existing mental disorders. Subjects stung by SCP-XXXX, now referred to as SCP-XXXX-A will have a strong urge to create various works of art, ranging from paintings to sculptures to everyday objects. These artworks increase in complexity eventually SCP-XXXX-A begins to produce anomalous items, henceforth referred to as SCP-XXXX-B.

After a period of roughly a year, SCP-XXXX-A will begin to return to their normal intelligence levels and the urge to create art will fade.

Addendum XXXX-1: SCP-XXXX was discovered in 1984 in Castlehacket manor, Ireland. Baron Connor Bodkin, the owner of the manor, had cultivated several nests of SCP-XXXX and had been kidnaping local farmers and turning them into SCP-XXXX-A, forcing them to create SCP-XXXX-B objects for his own monetary gain. His operation was discovered by a dinner guest who stumbled upon the anomalous sweatshop in the manor's cellar. Foundation agents within the Garda Síochána (Irish police force) were alerted to the anomalous occurrence in the manor.

Bodkins corpse was discovered at the bottom of the service stairwell covered in hornet stings. The cellar was infested with SCP-XXXX. A full list of objects recovered from the Castlehacket manor cellar is available below.
