Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a security perimeter which consists of a 3.5m tall fence surrounding the building with a radius of 1.5 km with 3 entrances and 8 Towers of type T-13-δ placed regularly around the perimeter. During the shift between 7:00 to 23:00 there must be 1 security officer in each tower and entrance and during the shift from 23:00 to 7:00 there must be 2 security officers in each tower and 3 in each entrance. One Clearance Level 3 security officer must be on the location at all times.

At 23:45 4 Class-D personnel are to be sent into SCP-XXXX with 180 kg raw flesh to feed all instances of SCP-XXXX-2 and are only allowed to leave the SCP-XXXX at 3:00. If any instances of SCP-XXXX-1 try to leave the SCP-XXXX, they must be immobilized by any means necessary and if this happens the Class-D personnel are not allowed to leave SCP-XXXX before 7:30.

No Researchers are allowed to be inside the SCP-XXXX from 23:00 and 8:00. To enter it after 20:00 an authorization from the Site director is necessary (see Addendum SCP-XXXX-A). No instances of SCP-XXXX-1 or SCP-XXXX-2 are allowed to be removed from SCP-XXXX. No tables are allowed to be removed from SCP-XXXX if not previously added.

Each instance of SCP-XXXX-3 is to be stored in site-77 in a vacuum closed container of type S-2-δ.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a 19th century mansion located in a remote region 250km west from ██████, Romania and was property of the noble house of [REDACTED], until 1918 when all members of the house disappeared. It was discovered during the "Corruption by Philosophers" internal investigation (see interrogation log CbP-I-65-β). There is a tombstone localized at the front of the SCP-XXXX with the following inscription(translated from Romanian): You commoner's are here only to feed the noble.

"They, who Those should serve to, are served to These, which should be used to serve It, as It.
Thus, These become They and These at the same time and They become It.
And because no more graves will be erected in the future for They, this one shall serve They all."

~the last of the first They.

Inside most of the rooms are wooden dolls (referred as SCP-XXXX-1), with an average height and weight of 150cm and 50kg, all of them are dressed as butlers or housemaids. There are ██ instances of SCP-XXXX-1. At 23:30 all instances of SCP-XXXX-1 will become animated and start setting all tables inside SCP-XXXX1 and will be finished around midnight. If an instance of SCP-XXXX-1 is not inside the SCP-XXXX during this event, it will start turning into sand2 completing the process around 1:00. Approximately 5 hours after the object has turned into sand, the sand particles created by this process will take the shape of a human skeleton3 and approximately 40 minutes later the particles will bind to each other resulting in a fossilized human skeleton4. This skeleton is designated as SCP-XXXX-3. There are █ instances of SCP-XXXX-3.

After all instances of SCP-XXXX-1, which are inside the SCP-XXXX, set all tables of the SCP-XXXX, the dishes and jars set by SCP-XXXX-1 become affixed to the table and develop an orifice similar to a human mouth5. These are described as SCP-XXXX-2 and there are approximately 1██. SCP-XXXX-2 is able to talk and eat, and will complain about the lack of food until fed6, if fed they will not talk until the next day.

If an instance of SCP-XXXX-2 is not fed until 1:00 all instances of SCP-XXXX-1 will leave SCP-XXXX, search and capture the nearest living animals, including humans. During these searches SCP-XXXX-1 have proven to have an above human strength, however, they are not immune to damage and if damaged enough they will stop moving. After capturing enough animals7, they will return to SCP-XXXX and feed all instances of SCP-XXXX-2. Around 6:00 all instances of SCP-XXXX-2 will return to their original state8. Shortly after the SCP-XXXX-1 will set all dishes and jars to their previous position, the SCP-XXXX-1 will return to its original position and return to its inert state.

If any instance of SCP-XXXX-2 is removed from SCP-XXXX9 It will, when all tables in the SCP-XXXX were set by SCP-XXXX-1, turn into sand10. Said sand will, when SCP-XXXX-1 starts its search for living animals, start to move (levitating) and search the individual who removed said instance of SCP-XXXX-2 from the SCP-XXXX. If the sand reaches this person, it will enter any orifice and start moving inside the organs of said individual causing damage in the victim's inner organs. When the victim dies the sand will become inert and won't show any anomalous property.

The act of removal of all tables from SCP-XXXX in order to stop the event, as it was theorized that if there wasn't enough space to set the dishes and jars they couldn't become animated thus hindering the event from happening, has proven itself in previous experiment as not advisable, as if there are not enough table surface in SCP-XXXX to set all instances of SCP-XXXX-2; SCP-XXXX would [DATA EXPUNGED] causing a major electrical failure of the site[DATA EXPUNGED] causing destruction of 75% of the security perimeter.

Addendum SCP-XXXX-A:

Exploration Log: XXXX-ε (post-named)

Members of the Exploration Team: Dr. B████

Foreword: Independent exploration made by Dr. B████ without authorization of the Foundation on the night from 13/11/201█ to 14/11/201█. Now 7 security officers must at 23:00 search SCP-XXXX to guarantee that no unauthorized personnel is still inside SCP-XXXX, an authorization from the O5 or the Site director is necessary to enter the mansion after 20:00.

Those were transcribed from the pages of Dr. B████'s notebook.

Addendum SCP-XXXX-B:

Test log: XXXX-η

Research Team: Dr.K███ and Researcher L██

Date: The night from 24/11/201█ to 25/11/201█

Foreword Relocation of four (4) instances of SCP-XXXX-1 to site-██. The relocation was done while the SCP-XXXX-1 was inactive. For the entirety of the experiment, each one instance was located in the containment rooms 728-A/B/C/D. The research team observed the objects from the observation room 728. Regular analyzes were made every 30 minutes.

Test log: XXXX-θ

Research Team: Dr.N██ and Researcher P█████

Date: The night from 24/11/201█ to 25/11/201█

Foreword Relocation of two (2) instances of SCP-XXXX-2 to the site ██. The relocation was done while the SCP-XXXX-1 was inactive. The relocation was done by Researcher P█████. For this experiment, the containment room 354-C was used. This test log also includes one interview (with Security officer H████) done after the experiment.

Addendum SCP-XXXX-C:

Test log: XXXX-ς

Research Team: Dr. L█, Dr. Z███, Security Chief U███ and the regular personnel of the Site.

Date: The night from 12/██/201█ to 13/██/201█

Foreword: Experiment was done to confirm if the lack of table surface in SCP-XXXX would, cause the periodical nocturne events of SCP-XXXX not to occur. All tables were relocated to the Site-██, 250km away from SCP-XXXX. This Log contains the written version of the communication between Dr. L█ (in Site-██) and Dr. Z███ and Security Chief U███ (on site of SCP-XXXX) and the written version of what was recorded on Security Chief U███'s voice recorder after the electrical failure on site.
