Living Thermite

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a 10x10x10 6 inch thick titanium container, the entity is to be monitored 24/7 by cameras in cased in heat resistant glass cases within the container and all personnel are required to wear heat resistant suits fitted with 1 inch thick light resistance visors when entering the container for cleaning and camera maintenance.

There is to be a flood system within the container as the only way to bring the entity out of its state of rage is to submerge it in water for approximately Three (3) Minutes.

Personnel entering the entities container are to be polite to the entity and be sure not to provoke it in anyway as it will become extremely hostile if provoked, however when the entity feels it is safe, it will often communicate with the personnel within its container, such as asking who they are or what they are doing. Personnel must be sure to avoid the subject of water or any other substance that can extinguish a fire and never speak to the entity unless spoken to first as this will enrage the entity and will cause it to become hostile.

When provoked the entity reaches temperatures of over 2000 degrees centigrade can burn through any material however, titanium seems to be the most durable and takes approximately 10 seconds per inch to burn through and therefore gives the personnel on site approximately 60 seconds to flood to container before a containment breach occurs.

Description: SCP-XXXX was first discovered shortly after a meteorite hit just off the coast of [REDACTED], the origin of the meteor is unknown. The entity was confused and was willing to cooperate once the team on site had managed to contain it. It was asked where it came from and what it was doing here; this almost immediately resulted in the enragement of the entity and the death of 4 personnel.

SCP-XXXX appears to be made up of a composition of Thermite and Magnesium and when enraged can reach temperatures of over 2000 degrees Centigrade, any personnel within a 20 metre radius whilst SCP-XXXX is in the first 10 seconds of this state will almost instantaneously be reduced to a pile of ash as the first 10 seconds of this state of rage cause the entity to give of huge amounts of heat and radiation.

Any mention of Ice, Water or over substances that are able to put out a fire within the entities hearing range will cause the entity to enter a state of rage until the containment procedures are met. The personnel responsible for SCP-XXXX’s state of rage will be severely punished.

SCP XXXX does not need to consume any sort of food or beverage its only request is for its container to be brightly lit 24/7 and that no personnel are to enter between the hours of 00:00 – 06:00. It is unclear why as surveillance shows there are no changes in behaviour between these hours.

In the event of a containment breach SCP-XXXX is to be tracked and contained by use of liquid nitrogen. The liquid nitrogen is to cover the entire body of the entity and will temporarily freeze it so that it can be re-contained. The team dispatched will have a 25 minute period to get the entity back into its containment chamber as after this 25 minute window the entity will thaw itself out of the liquid nitrogen and continue its state of rage.

Once the entity has been re-contained the container will be flooded with ice cold water for 5 minutes to confirm that the entity has been returned to a docile state at which point the chamber will be drained the entity will be quarantined for a 12 hour period.
