Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Due to SCP-XXXX's presence in a major metropolitan area, cordoning the manifestation(s) completely is not an option. Therefore, Mobile Task Force Rho-70 ("The 128") has been formed for the purpose of facilitating the containment of SCP-XXXX. To achieve complete containment, the following actions have been undertaken.

1. High Speed Cameras1 placed on 3 4 points in the Boston Bay Area to monitor for the the manifestation of SCP-XXXX-1; Fort Independence on Castle Island, At the end of Logan International Airport's Runway 33L, and on the current tallest building in the city (Currently 200 Clarendon Street, popularly known as the Hancock Tower)
Addendum: Cameras are also to be placed on Point Allerton in Hull, and the neighboring properties purchased by the Foundation and assigned to MtF Rho-70 members. See Incident Report XXXX-X for more details.

2. Blockade teams are to stand by and be ready to physically intercept viewing of SCP-XXXX-1 at all manifestation locations. Teams are to stand ready with helicopters and trucks if SCP-XXXX-1 travels by road or air. If SCP-XXXX-1 travels through the terrain, Amnesiacs are to be distributed aerially along it's path of travel. Teams are to travel with SCP-XXXX-1 until it reaches SCP-XXXX-2.

3. The site of the encounter between SCP-XXXX-2 and SCP-XXXX-3 at the Minuteman National Park in Lexington and Concord is to be fenced off under the guise of a dangerous mold infestation. Cameras are to be set up at the site and are to record the entirety of the encounter.

Variations of SCP-XXXX-1, 2, and 3 are to be processed and logged by Foundation AI. As SCP-XXXX is not currently estimated to be close to triggering, actionable intelligence is low and should not be acted upon.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the collective designation for a series of intangible manifestations that irregularly occur in and around the Boston bay area and the nearby cities of Lexington and Concord. There are three parts to the manifestations.

  • SCP-XXXX-1 is a manifestation of a single entity or small group of entities (so far not observed to be larger than 6) that appears in various points near the bay. After appearing, this entity will wait in or around the immediate area of it's apparition, then begin traveling either by established roads, by air, or rarely directly through the terrain to the the "staging area" of SCP-XXXX-2, then for all intents and purposes merge with SCP-XXXX-2
  • SCP-XXXX-2 is a manifestation of 374±6 entities that manifest in the Minuteman National Park. These entities usually manifest as irregular armed forces, with civilian clothes and mismatched weaponry. However, instances of conventional armed forces or unconventional forces have been observed, see SCP-XXXX variation log for more details. These entities will manifest 10~ minuets before SCP-XXXX-1's arrival. During those 10 minuets, entities of SCP-XXXX-2 will move in an agitated manner around the "staging area". Upon arrival of SCP-XXXX-1, they form themselves into a rough column and march to the "encounter area"
  • SCP-XXXX-3 is a manifestation of 444 entities that manifest at the "encounter area" 1 minuet before the arrival of SCP-XXXX-2. These entities will usually manifest as conventional armed forces, with uniforms and matching weapons. However, instances of irregular armed forces or unconventional forces have been observed, see SCP-XXXX variation log for more details. These entities will 'dig in' and take cover, though the cover is not visible, in the time they have before the arrival of SCP-XXXX-2.

After the arrival of SCP-XXXX-2 to the encounter site, a battle begins between SCP-XXXX-2 and SCP-XXXX-3 which plays out in three stages.

  • In stage one, SCP-XXXX-2 forces arrive and begin skirmishing with SCP-XXXX-3 at long range. Both groups take mild casualties. Any casualties produced will immediately demanifest
  • In stage two, one SCP-XXXX-2 entity, designated "Flagbearer" will produce a flag, by unseen means, and lead the SCP-XXXX-2 entities into a charge against SCP-XXXX-3. Heavy casualties in the ensuring close quarter combat will ensure for both sides.
  • In the final stage, SCP-XXXX-3 breaks, and the remaining entities start fleeing. They will demanifest 50 meters away from their original position. The remaining SCP-XXXX-2 entities will form a circle and raise the flag carried by the Flagbearer in the middle, and then demanifest.

The final property of SCP-XXXX are it's variations. All three manifestations of entities constantly shift appearance, currently at a rate of 4.7 million iterations per second. These iterations change uniforms, appearance, weapons, insignia, and [REDACTED]. A brief sample of variations processed so far is included below.
