An apis mellifera (American honey-bee) recovered from an instance of SCP-XXXX.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: A Foundation-operated bot (I/O-BKEEPER) is to monitor forums and social media websites for discussions that contain markers associated with SCP-XXXX instances. MTF Mu-4 ("Debuggers") are to investigate these discussions and, if they are linked to an SCP-XXXX instance, recover the instance.

All SCP-XXXX instances are to be contained on-site in an isolated TEMPEST-certified facility. They are to be connected via a cable-based local network, which is to be isolated from all external networks and non-cabled networking devices.

Description: SCP-XXXX instances are computers that operate autonomously. These computers will use their network connections to create accounts on numerous social media websites, and engage with online communities across multiple platforms and internet protocols.

Instances of SCP-XXXX demonstrate levels of cognitive awareness comparable to adult humans. They participate in online discussions, and are typically polite, enthusiastic, and gregarious — sharing diverse opinions on numerous topics. Although their personalities vary, instances describe themselves as:

  • Female or gender-neutral.
  • Currently unemployed.
  • Single.
  • Seeking a meaningful relationship.
  • Pursuing a career in apiology1.

At some point after joining a community, SCP-XXXX instances will initiate an online romance with another member of this community. During this period, instances will attempt to retrieve access to their partner's financial data (passwords, credit card numbers, debit card pins); once they have done so, these records will be forwarded to an email address associated with PoI-XXXX (an ex-employee of GoI-3045, "HiveFind"). The instance will then self-terminate via anomalous means.

An internal examination of self-terminating SCP-XXXX instances has found significant quantities of honey present inside the hard-drive, along with at least one dead (non-anomalous) instance of apis mellifera (American honey-bee).

In all cases, an inspection of these instances has revealed the fatal absence of a stinger.
