SCP-XXXX in containment.

Item #: SCP-XXXX
Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a standard humanoid domicile at Site-██, and is to be connected to the standard Foundation power at ALL times.

SCP-XXXX's Containment Cell's power is to also run on a seperate power generator, and backup power generator at all times. Under no circumstances must SCP-XXXX have a light taken off of it.

All Security Personal assigned to SCP-XXXX's Containment Cell is to be equipped with Standard Tactical flashlights.

Regular maintenance is to be done ever 24 hours on the light fixture inside of SCP-XXXX's containment chamber. Routine cleanings are also done, every two (2) weeks.

Description: SCP-XXXX appears to be a sentient inverted human corpse. Inverted on the exterior is human bone which coats the body as skin and muscle tissue would. On the interior are standard human organs, and muscle tissue.

SCP-XXXX displays sentience and can talk. Moving is also possible, but SCP-XXXX tends to fall when attempting to do so, and mostly lays down when light is on its body. SCP-XXXX also tends to talk less when light is shown, or is projected onto it.

Although SCP-XXXX is alive, it shows no will to eat or sleep and does not need it, although it repeats its statement of, 'Hunger for Death.' Additionally, any body parts/organs removed from SCP-XXXX will be regrown within a 24-hour period.

SCP-XXXX has also been reported making strange vocalizations at night. Security personal have since requested a soundproofing to be done on the containment chamber. Thorough testing shows, the vocalizations induce "Fear" In all humans within a 30 foot radius.

When no lights are projected onto or near SCP-XXXX, it's location will change and so will its dormancy. SCP-XXXX is also extremely hostile to humans in the darkness. SCP-XXXX's kill method is still unconfirmed, as bodies are found removed of all skin and broken bones. When light is restored, SCP-XXXX returns to its dormant corpse state. Often far away from its last reported position.

When no lights are shown on SCP-XXXX walls and doors do not seem to stop or have an affect on SCP-XXXX, as it has proven to escape tightly locked and secured rooms.

When SCP-XXXX does manage to escape Foundation, it is often reported within a weeks time at a graveyard somewhere in the world.
