SCP-XXXX Conjoined Twins



Picture of SCP-XXXX-1 no growth (SCP-XXXX-2) seen.

Classifications: Euclid

Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-1 is to be held in a glass cell. The size of the cell is of no importance as long as it is large enough to hold SCP-XXXX-1. The cell should be checked routinely for any cavity through which SCP-XXXX-2 is able to leave its cell. Under no circumstances should there be any openings leading inside the cell other than the door.
Ten (10) UV light sources are to be place directly above SCP-XXXX-1. One (1) UV light placed directly above SCP-XXXX-1 is to remain active at all times.

Description: SCP-XXXX-1 is a mummified corpse of conjoined twins no older than 4-6 months. Its body is entirely draped in a grey cloth and only its heads are visible. At first glance there is nothing seemingly wrong with the corpse but, SCP-XXXX remains inert until it is within 10 meters to a living human. When SCP-XXXX is within 10 meters of a living human, it will begin to grow protrusions out of all cavities of the head. These tentacle like appendages have been observed to grow anywhere from; 2m to 20m in length and from 0.5mm to 20mm in diameter.

They actively seek out the subject and quickly embed themselves inside the subject through its mouth, ears, nose or ███. Even though the tentacles seem to pierce the subjects brain causing haemorrhaging and loss of cognitive functions, thermal imaging shows that the subject’s bodily functions remain normal.

After 5 to 10 hours the bodily functions of the subject cease and the tentacles retreat back inside SCP-XXXX-1. In 2 to 3 days after the bodily functions have ceased, the subject’s body undergoes extreme mutations. New spider like appendages start growing from the corpse its arms and legs start to atrophy in favour of the newly formed appendages. The head of the subject retracts inside its chest cavity and the entire torso splits open revealing a massive gaping mouth. The flesh of the subject forms into a carapace (much like that of insects).

This mutation is to be classified as SCP-XXXX-3 and is to be considered extremely dangerous. When the mutation is complete the creature franticly starts searching for a way to exit the cell, bashing itself against the surfaces with complete lack of self-preservation. SCP-XXXX-3 will continue to do this until it either breaks through or it has damaged itself beyond the point of being able to move. If it however does manage to break through, SCP-XXXX-1 cell is to be flooded with UV light as to prevent SCP-XXXX-2 from leaving its confinement.

SCP-XXXX-3 is extremely violent and will actively seek out and hunt for prey. It has a distinct taste for warm blooded mammalian creatures and will attack them on sight. SCP-XXXX-3 is resistant to all small firearms and lower calibre rifle rounds. It takes anywhere from 10 to 20 .308 Winchester (larger calibre rounds are more effective) rounds to take down SCP-XXXX-3 UV light appears to have no effect. The mutations caused by SCP-XXXX-2 are not set and have different effects on different subjects. All the mutations however, appear to have some traits similar to those of insects or arachnids.

Addendum-1:SCP-XXXX-1 came under SCP attention when a French newspapers reported that all the villagers in the town of ████ had disappeared. Investigators sent to the site, found excessive trails of dried blood leading from the villager’s houses to the surrounding forest. A SCP recovery unit went to investigate and found 15 instances of SCP-XXXX-3 and a large amount of decomposed bodies close to a cave located 7km from the village. All instances of SCP-XXXX-3 were destroyed and the SCP recovery unit on site found a glass container just outside the cave. Inside the cave they found SCP-XXXX-1. They reported “strange growths” coming forth from SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX-2 tried to latch itself onto a member of the unit but came into direct contact with sunlight forcing it to retreat back inside SCP-XXXX-1. The SCP recovery unit secured SCP-XXXX-1 inside the glass container they had found and successfully returned it to the SCP facility for further analysis.

Addendum-2:The recovery unit investigated the town further after securing SCP-XXXX-1. In one of the houses they discovered a journal belonging to a S. ████, an antiquarian and amateur archaeologist specialized in ancient Mesopotamian artefacts. After examining its content the journal appeared to be written in an, as of yet, unknown cuneiform dialect. The researchers at the SCP have had some luck in translating it.
