Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Embedded agents in local law enforcement are to monitor for and respond to reports of instances of SCP-XXXX. If agents arrive before the completion of SCP-XXXX, they are to establish a 20 meter perimeter around the space occupied by SCP-XXXX-2 instances. All witnesses are to be kept outside of this perimeter. When SCP-XXXX reaches completion, SCP-XXXX-2 instances and witnesses are to be properly amnesticized. Containment of SCP-XXXX-1 is currently impossible.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a spacetime anomaly lasting a period of 12 minutes and 28 seconds. SCP-XXXX has currently only been observed occurring in outdoor areas traversed or occupied by at least ███ individuals, such as public parks and city streets.

SCP-XXXX begins when a caucasian female (designated SCP-XXXX-1) spontaneously materializes and offers a random individual (hereafter designated SCP-XXXX-2) an apple. This apple is externally similar to non-anomalous apples, although color varies between instances. Once SCP-XXXX consumes the apple, both it and SCP-XXXX-1 spontaneously vanish and SCP-XXXX-2 undergoes rapid physiological changes. These changes range from growth of additional limbs and sensory organs, to complete genetic alterations. SCP-XXXX-2 instances express extreme distress over the duration of SCP-XXXX. Any witnesses that come into contact with SCP-XXXX-2 become additional instances.

Once SCP-XXXX reaches completion, SCP-XXXX-2 instances immediately revert to their previous state before SCP-XXXX began. Approximately 87% of instances report feelings of confusion, yet claim to have no memory of the events of SCP-XXXX. Despite this, the use of amnestics is encouraged in order to maintain Foundation security.
