Approximate dimensions necessary for remote manipulation by SCP-XXXX

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a standard 5x5x5 meter humanoid holding cell. No syringes or objects resembling syringes are to be brought within a 1 km radius of SCP-XXXX unless authorized by at least two personnel with level 3 or above security clearance for the purpose of experimentation. The walls of SCP-XXXX’s cell are to be regularly checked for perforations. In the event that SCP-XXXX’s cell has sustained damage, SCP-XXXX is to be moved to an undamaged holding cell and punished through the reduction of daily food rations.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a caucasian human male of approximately 50 years of age. SCP-XXXX has demonstrated the ability to remotely manipulate syringes, as well as any objects that resemble a syringe in shape. The exact specifications of what qualifies as “syringe-shaped” have not been fully defined, but the presence of a pointed tip, a broader section resembling the barrel of a syringe, and a segment resembling the plunger are necessary. An object does not have to function as a syringe in order to fall under the effects of SCP-XXXX. and The strength of this manipulation is unclear, with SCP-XXXX being able to levitate syringe shaped objects of several tons and move them at speeds of up to 50 kph with no signs of exhaustion. The effects of SCP-XXXX extend to any syringe shaped object within approximately one kilometer of SCP-XXXX.

Upon initial questioning, SCP-XXXX claimed to be a doctor from ██████, Tennessee. Analysis of SCP-XXXX’s birth certificate and SSN have confirmed this statement. SCP-XXXX also claimed to have no recollection regarding the nature and origin of its anomalous properties, stating that they were first noticed about two months before Foundation acquisition. SCP-XXXX has been largely compliant during Foundation custody, and has refrained from using its anomalous properties to any malevolent capacity.

As of ██/██/20██, SCP-XXXX has demonstrated the ability to remotely manipulate the following objects:

  • a standard 100-gauge insulin syringe
  • a medical grade hypodermic syringe
  • a life-sized plaster mold of a medical grade hypodermic syringe
  • a model of a syringe sculpted from ice
  • a model of a syringe sculpted from wood
  • a model of a syringe made from the welding of a tin can and pieces of scrap metal
  • a model of a syringe molded from cement and weighing approximately 4 metric tons
  • a microscopic recreation of a syringe made from the alignment of graphite molecules.

The weaponization of SCP-XXXX's properties through the use of ballistic missiles built to resemble syringes has been proposed and is currently pending review.

Addendum XXXX.1: Further Developments Regarding the Properties of SCP-XXXX

As of ██/██/20██, SCP-XXXX has demonstrated a broadening in its ability to control syringe shaped objects. Along with the ability to remotely manipulate objects shaped to resemble syringes, SCP-XXXX has also acquired the ability to extract syringe-shaped molds from larger substances. This behavior was first recorded when SCP-XXXX remotely extracted a mass of water in the approximate shape of a syringe from its daily water supply. Upon questioning, SCP-XXXX claimed that it could "feel" the syringe shape inside the water, and that this was not a previously known ability.

Three weeks later, SCP-XXXX was observed extracting syringe-shaped molds in a similar manner from the steel walls of its holding cell. This was met with immediate restrainment from security personnel, the permanent depletion of SCP-XXXX's daily food allotment, and the warning of further punishment should this behavior continue. Although SCP-XXXX claimed to be exhibiting this behavior out of boredom and not a desire to escape, personnel are still advised to supervise SCP-XXXX's future behavior with the utmost stringency.
