Item #: SCP-E995

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-E995 shall be contained in a standard humanoid cell observing class 2.3 and 6.2 Hazardous Materials Containment Procedures. In the event of a containment breach, evacuate the site per Standard Contamination Protocol and inform the HMCL supervisor onsite immediately. The use of lethal force in recontainment efforts is forbidden.

All Sites and Areas have been issued one transportable containment unit predisposed for the moving of SCP-E995 back to Area-29. Mobile Task Forces Beta are charged of the containment of SCP-E995 utilizing heavy tranquillising weaponry loaded with antimycotic.

SCP-E995 follows a strict vegan diet consisting of mushrooms and berries and is to be fed at least three times a week.

Notes: SCP-E995 may refer to any instance of toxic, self-repairing, sporonic, fungal humanoid creature with characteristics and/or behavior corresponding with (otherwise similar to) the description that follows.

Description: SCP-E995 is a humanoid creature measuring 1.58 cm in height, that presents characteristics similar to that of an adult woman, yellow in color, with large black eyes. No hair is found on its body, the entirety of which, is covered in a thick shell (save for appendices and visage), that adds 10 kg to its overall mass of approximately 65 kg.

SCP-E995 is perfectly capable of coherent speech in the French language and attempted, several times, to communicate with personnel and civilians incapable of understanding it. For this reason the object origin is hypothesised to be Magascar.

DNA testing indicate that SCP-E995 is member of the kingdom Fungi. However, a close secondary match to the human genome was noted.

SCP-E995’s cellular structure is extremely complex. Cells are more densely packed than in any other recorded terrestrial life-form and do not appear to communicate via chemical messengers. Some form of teleporting macromolecules1 are theorised to be used to maintain inter-cell communication.

SCP-E995 is extremely toxic and hallucinogenic. The toxin responsible for this is produced by various cells in SCP-E995's organism that also function as antibodies, denoted ‘Anti-threat cells’. They have been found also airborne around the object. These gases are produced in extremely high quantities. (See file KTE-3995-Red:Appendix 2, Termination log 001)

The toxin is synthesised through an unknown process of transforming pathogens. They have been found capable of the quick disposal of any noxious substance they have been exposed to. Should these cells enter another organism, they may attack its host's cells continuing the toxin production until complete decomposition or death of SCP-E995.

The toxin is lethal exclusively to the kingdom Animalia, is lethal even at small doses and can render a zone affected inhabitable for up to 4 weeks. Duration highly depends on weather conditions and number of casualties. Notably, it is hallucinogenic to humans, for this reason, descriptions of SCP-E995 will often vary. Large black eyes, bright colours and a pointy head are often the only coherent traits.

The structural cells of SCP-E995, denoted ‘Construction cells’, appear to be coordinated and will be dispatched istantly to any damaged area of SCP-E995 in need of repair that can be repaired.2 They change density, elasticity and strength as necessary.

Upon death,3 all of SCP-E995's cells will undergo a quick separation process, that may last little less than fifteen minutes.

When one of its construction cells touches a surface with the right nutrients and conditions,4 the object will rebuild itself upon it. Depending on conditions, the rebuilding process may take up to one hour.

Once airborne, SCP-E995's cells can travel extremely long distances and can remain alive independently for an unknown amount of time until the object death. Often, the object will reappear at several kilometers of distance from the location of its death, usually, after 20 days.

SCP-E995 can recall all memories prior to its death. Antimycotics were found being able to effectively induce the loss of consciousness of SCP-E995 and have mild amnesic effects on it. At medium doses, they can cause its temporary coma. At high doses, they may result in its death. For these reason, recontainment teams are instructed not to fire at the object with an antimycotic weapon more than once or twice every 24 hours.

Discovery: On date 20/02/████ a man in ███████████, Madagascar claimed of have ran over SCP-E995, later crashing. (See Incident E995-1) SCP-E995 appeared several times throughout the world causing considerable amounts of damage. (See Addendum E995-A)

Recovery: Following the events reported in incident-e995-7, Group of Interest ‘Global Occult Coalition’ contacted the Foundation after several failed attempts at the termination of SCP-E995.

During negotiations, the Coalition agreed to share only partial information regarding the object and the termination attempts, with the redaction of the cover-up methods, precise locations, strategic/tactical intel and weaponry used (if used).

After the events of Incident [REDACTED], the GOC agreed to reveal information about weaponry used. See document [REDACTED] for further details.

On 27/04/██ 2300 hours, SCP-E995 was intercepted in China. On 28/04/██ the object was located in ████████ forest (██° ██′ ██″ █). In a joint effort, SCP-E995 was captured on 29/04/██ by Mobile Task Force Beta-29 (“Liquidators”) with the aid of Assessment Team 31 ("Sole Custody Pays") with no civilian casualties. Object was brought to Site-29 on date 02/04/██.

Assessment Team 31 was sent in the forest to retrive SCP-E995 along MTF Beta-29 Green while MTF Beta-29 Red and Blue formed a perimeter and secured the zone. SCP-E995 was located by AT-31 and was shot with a heavy tranquilliser gun and was captured by MTF Beta-29 Blue when it attempted to evade. SCP-E995 arrived at Area-33 at 2256 hours on date 02/04/██ after clearing 27 checkpoints.
