Item #: SCP-3631

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-3631-1 is to be held in a standard biological containment cell, and is to be fed two kilograms of raw meat on a weekly basis. Food is to be promptly removed if not consumed within two hours. The cell is to be cleaned on a weekly basis, and SCP-3631-1 is to be sedated during this period and other interactions aside from testing.

SCP-3631-2 is to be held in a modified chamber in the intensive care unit of Site-19, where it will be provided sustenance through intravenous (IV) injection. SCP-3631-2 must be examined by a medical team daily. Any signs of deterioration are to be treated immediately. In the case that SCP-3631-2 deteriorates to critical condition and/or does not respond to treatment, Procedure V367-Kilbourne is to be carried out.

SCP-3631-2 is to be administered anesthetics before Procedure V367-Kilbourne to minimize psychological trauma. One human cadaver is to be placed in the vicinity of SCP-3631-2; security personnel are to release SCP-3631-1 into SCP-3631-2's chamber. Personnel are not to enter the cell or disturb SCP-3631-1 in any way until the procedure is concluded, at which point SCP-3631-1 is to be sedated and removed from the chamber. SCP-3631-2 is to be examined afterwards and administered antiseptic by the standby medical team.

Description: SCP-3631 is the collective designation for two humanoids (SCP-3631-1 and SCP-3631-2).

SCP-3631-1 is a nocturnal carnivore with red skin pigmentation. It weighs 89 kg and stands at 1.9 m when upright. Outside of a mouth and several heat-sensing orifices, it lacks any discernible facial features. Despite this, SCP-3631-1 demonstrates sight, smell, and hearing comparable with that of other large primates. SCP-3631-1 displays persistence hunting behavior, stalking solitary prey from a distance and attacking when isolated.

SCP-3631-2 is an adult male human. All of SCP-3631-2's limbs have been amputated, and the lower jaw and vocal chords have been surgically removed. Additionally, a long incision has been made across the abdomen to allow access to the abdominal cavity. Although it shows signs of consciousness, SCP-3631-2 is capable of only weak response to stimuli, though this has improved since being taken into Foundation custody.

SCP-3631-1 displays aggressively protective behavior against perceived threats to SCP-3631-2, having become significantly more aggressive since containment. SCP-3631-1 seems to be able to innately sense the medical condition of SCP-3631-2, as demonstrated by its agitation and high-pitched vocalizations typically associated with distress during surgical operations on SCP-3631-2. SCP-3631-1 will transport victims not used for sustenance to the vicinity of SCP-3631-2. It then will begin extracting organs from the victim to replace diseased and/or otherwise damaged organs in SCP-3631-2.1 The transplanted organs resume functions upon attachment. However, transplanted organs quickly begin showing signs of atrophy and require replacement on an approximately monthly basis.

Analysis indicates nearly all of SCP-3631's organs have been replaced in this fashion, with only the central nervous system and sections of bone and muscle tissue retained; tissues from 23 different hosts have been identified. Attempts to replace this process with standard medical care have yielded mixed results, although supplementing maintenance from SCP-3631-1 with care from Foundation medical teams has improved SCP-3631-2's condition considerably. It is not known at this time how SCP-3631-2 consistently survived this process prior to containment given the poor quality of care and high risk of blood loss and infection.

Discovery: SCP-3631-1 was discovered and captured on 2007/12/18 in Ombre Rouge, Louisiana after a string of disappearances were reported along with multiple sightings of a hostile humanoid entity. SCP-3631-1 disappeared from its cell without explanation on 2008/11/29. After several years with no sighting or evidence supporting the entity's existence, Foundation personnel re-designated it as neutralized.

SCP-3631-1 was rediscovered along with SCP-3631-2 on 2018/10/16 after a series of disappearances consistent with those that led to the discovery of SCP-3631-1. During the investigation, MTF Epsilon-6 ("Village Idiots") discovered SCP-3631-2 in an abandoned barn outside of Ombre Rouge. Several pillows, blankets, and crude objects resembling toys were found in the barn, along with multiple unidentifiable human remains. During efforts to extract SCP-3631-2, Epsilon-6 was intercepted by SCP-3631-1, which was quickly subdued with minimal casualties.

Addendum: Identification for an individual named Simon Hays was found on the person of SCP-3631-2. Records indicate Hays was reported missing in late 2016 shortly after returning to Ombre Rouge on a break from Louisiana State University.

Medical records indicate that Hays had been hospitalized due to a concussion after an automotive collision on 2008/11/29, the same date as the disappearance of SCP-3631-1 from containment.2 He was diagnosed with short-term retrograde amnesia. Investigation of Hays' residence unearthed a number of crude drawings in an opened envelope, several of which depicted SCP-3631-1. A small note was included:

Found these old drawings of yours
Thought you might like to see them again
