Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: An area of three meters by three meters by two meters is to be monitored by two Class 2 guards at all times. Guards are also required to be switched out weekly, pass a background check before being assigned to their post, and proven to be drug-free at all times with no addictions. The enclosement is to be made of one meter thick reinforced concrete and is to be checked for damage weekly. Any damage is to be repaired or replaced accordingly. When personnel must enter SCP-XXXX's container, no fewer than four persons may enter at all times, and they must have at least two guards along with them in case of attack. In the case of an attack during cleaning or interview, all personnel are to suspend any contact with SCP-XXXX for 48 hours. The enclosement is to be cleaned at least every three days.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an approximately 2-meter (6.5ft) tall humanoid, with multiple cuts, stab and bullet wounds, and tear wounds all over the upper torso. There are deep cross-shaped cuts along the covering the chest, back, and the back's of SCP-XXXX's hands, bleeding profusely. On its face is a blue mask with blood stains, with an inch thick black cross, covering the entirety of the mask. On the mask, there is a distinct bullet hole in the forehead. SCP-XXXX is wearing light-blue, jeans that cover the lower half of it, along with black boots. It is not wearing any shirt, leaving its chest open, allowing the wounds to be visible from all angles. SCP-XXXX does not show any signs of pain from the wounds but has been seen shambling around from time to time. Underneath SCP-XXXX's mask is another cross-shaped cut on its face and eyes. SCP-XXXX has chin-length black hair and sharp, red teeth that are not recognizable in humans nor in any known animals.

SCP-XXXX-2 is an approximately 1.2-meter (4ft) tall humanoid, looking to be around the age of 7. It has been seen wearing no clothing, a long blue dress, a short pink dress, a white blouse along with a blue skirt, a black shirt and pants, and a green shirt and black pants. SCP-XXXX-2 has long, straight brown hair and blue eyes, but occasionally will be seen with brown, or black eyes. SCP-XXXX-2 is always near or next to SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX will become hostile with anyone that stays around it for over two hours, tries to take off its mask without it taking it off personally, or tries to interact with SCP-XXXX-2. SCP-XXXX has been seen guarding SCP-XXXX-2, what is believed to be talking with it occasionally, and occasionally playing with SCP-XXXX-2 in a parent like manner. If SCP-XXXX should become hostile towards Foundation Staff, pine smelling gas has been found to be effective in calming SCP-XXXX and is to be released into the enclosement. All personnel inside the enclosement at time of hostility are to exit the enclosure immediately. Any personnel touched or wounded by SCP-XXXX when hostile is to report to the medical bay for examination and recovery.

Addendum XXXX.1: Discovery

SCP-XXXX was first found in the forest of [DATA REDACTED], America. The Extraction Team was dispatched immediately upon notice of SCP-XXXX to [DATA REDACTED] but was reportedly wiped out, due to arriving during one of SCP-XXXX's rage-induced attacks. Witnesses reported that the cause of SCP-XXXX's attack was because SCP-XXXX-2 had been kidnapped by a gang. When SCP-XXXX realized SCP-XXXX-2 was missing, SCP-XXXX immediately began a rampage, searching the small town for SCP-XXXX-2. A second Extraction Team along with Dr. Drake and Dr. Jacobs was dispatched two days later and successfully captured both SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-2. SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-2 were brought into containment promptly with no resistance from SCP-XXXX, believed to be because of the presence of SCP-XXXX-2.

The following is a confiscated cell phone video recording by a civilian before and after SCP-XXXX's rampage.

Civilian 1: Is that a man?

Civilian 2: I don't know. He looks hurt.

Civilian 1: There's a lot of blood on him. Do you think we should help?

Civilian 2: Probably. (Both walk closer to SCP-XXXX) He's got a lot of cuts on him.

Civilian 1: Yeah. (Sounds of a small girl screaming softly start)1 What the hell?

Civilian 2: Yo, hey that guy is moving. He's standing up.

Civilian 1: Is that… a sword in his hand?

Civilian 3: What are you all looking at?

Civilian 1: Oh shit, that guy is coming over here.

Civilian 3: Why is coming over here? What did you two do?

Civilian 2: We didn't do anything! Just run!

(Sounds of footsteps on concrete)

Civilian 1: Go in the alleyway!

Civilian 2: (All breathing heavily) We made it, he's gone the other way. We're alive! █████ we're alive!

Civilian 1: Yes, yes, I know. Why did he come after us though?

(Loud and soft screams from multiple people fill the air)

Civilian 3: The hell is that guy doing?

September 20, 2014 18:49

Civilian 1: Who were those guys? They were in blue uniforms. Was it the military?

Civilian 2: I don't know. But they got that guy to calm down. Did you see the girl though?

Civilian 1: Yeah why? She wasn't wearing any clothes so I didn't look long. Why are you blushing █████?

(Civilian 2 gets smacked from Civilian 3.)

Civilian 3: You disgust me █████. You shouldn't be looking at a young girl like that, or I'll turn you over to the military.

Civilian 1: Hey ████. How is it out there?

Civilian 3: Every wooden building is destroyed, and lots of the brick ones are damaged immensely. That man did a lot of damage to the cit-

Civilian 2: You mean the whole city is in shambles? Where the hell are we supposed to go now? Where do we sleep?

Civilian 3: Hey, ████, calm down. It's not like the place got nuked.

Extraction 1: Hey, are you all alright?

Civilian 1: Yeah, we're all okay. What the hell was that thing?

Extraction 1: Don't worry about it. Is that recording?

Civilian 1: What if it is?

Extraction 1: For your safety, I need to confiscate it. Please don't resist. (Civilian 1 grumbles and hand over the phone.) Thank you. Once we've taken care of the footage, you'll receive your phone in the mail. You should expect it in about one to two weeks.


Note: The three civilians were led to a less damaged part of the city and were blacked out due to protocol to prevent rumors. All citizens who had also seen SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-2 lost their memories of the anomalies as well.

Addendum XXXX.2: Retreival

The following is an interview conducted by Dr. Sherman Jacobs on site with SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-2.

[Interviewer: Dr. Sherman Jacobs, Site-115

Interviewed: SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-2


Dr. Jacobs: Will somebody please get a blanket or something to cover the girl up? I would rather not be looking at that the whole ride back.

Extraction 4: Sure. Here, I'll put it on. (Footsteps on metal followed by fabric being ripped and shouts in surprise)

Dr. Jacobs: Okay, can we take that sword away from it first? It's frightening to me. It just tore the blanket in half with that damn sword, I don't want it killing anyone here.

(SCP-XXXX-2 whispering next to SCP-XXXX's head while putting a hand on SCP-XXXX's hand holding the sword)

SCP-XXXX-2: Don't worry. He only attacked because he didn't know what you were doing. Here. (Gives Dr. Drake the jagged sword. Sounds of personnel in the helicopter gasping, dropping items in their hands, and whispering) He won't hurt you as long as you don't get too close to me.

Dr. Jacobs: So you can speak. I didn't know if you could. But could you please let us put something on you?

SCP-XXXX-2: Just have everyone close their eyes. (Prolonged period of silence) Okay. You can look again.

Dr. Jacobs: A school uniform? I don't understand where you got that from, neither of you had enough pocket space to carry a school uniform.

SCP-XXXX-2: (Stubborn look covering SCP-XXXX-2's face) Does it matter where I got it from?

Dr. Jacobs: No, I guess not. Sorry. I didn't mean to offend you if I did.

SCP-XXXX-2: (Sighs) It's okay. Did you want to ask anything else, or was the sword it?

Dr. Jacobs: I didn't know if you would let us talk to you. But I think, for now, that will be all. We will hold an actual interview later on. But if you wouldn't mind, could you tell us why SCP-XXXX hasn't spoken yet?

(SCP-XXXX-2 wraps arms around SCP-XXXX's neck while looking at Dr. Jacobs angrily)

Dr. Jacobs: I won't ask again then.


Addendum XXXX.3: Observation Log

Observational Log XXXX.OL.1 Summary

Subject: SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-2

Observational Notes: SCP-XXXX mainly sat in the corner of the enclosement while SCP-XXXX-2 would run around, summersault, roll, and play around in the enclosement. SCP-XXXX watches SCP-XXXX-2 at all times, except for when any personnel is in the enclosure. When SCP-XXXX-2 falls or injures itself, SCP-XXXX will get up, walk over to SCP-XXXX-2, and help them up, making sure they aren't hurt. SCP-XXXX will then either leave SCP-XXXX-2 to continue playing or will bring SCP-XXXX-2 over to the corner, holding it close.

Observational Log XXXX.OL.2 Summary

Subject: SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-2

Preface: A test subject (D-581436) was introduced into the containment to try and talk to SCP-XXXX and/or SCP-XXXX-2. SCP-XXXX stopped watching SCP-XXXX-2 and stared at D-581436 as the subject entered the enclosement. SCP-XXXX-2 showed no signs of acknowledgment towards the subject.

Observation Notes: D-581436 was brought to the enclosure and put into the area in order to attempt to talk with SCP-XXXX or SCP-XXXX-2. As the subject started walking towards SCP-XXXX-2, SCP-XXXX stood up and took a step closer to the subject. When the subject reached SCP-XXXX-2, he reached his hand out, promptly aggravating SCP-XXXX into an attack. SCP-XXXX quickly closed the distance between SCP-XXXX and the subject and killed the subject, ripping his head off. SCP-XXXX then looked at the observation window where Dr. Jacobs, Dr. ████, and Dr. ██████ were watching. SCP-XXXX walked over to the window and threw the head and body at it. All personnel in the observation deck were withdrawn for later study.

** Observational Log XXXX.OL.3 Full**

Subject: SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-2

Preface: Dr. Jacobs went into SCP-XXXX's enclosure to hold an interview. When SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-2 were asked about their origin, they refused to answer. When questioned about SCP-XXXX's mask, both SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-2 were compliant, allowing personnel to see SCP-XXXX's face. When asked about their relationship with each other, SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-2 seemed to dislike the question, and answered vaguely. When questioned about SCP-XXXX's noticeable change in personalities, SCP-XXXX grew hostile towards personnel inside the enclosure. All personnel was evacuated and pine scented gas was released into the enclosement.

Observational Notes: Dr. Jacobs had two D-Class personnel set up a table and chairs inside SCP-XXXX's enclosure. Once everything was set up, D-Class personnel were sent back to their cells. Dr. Jacobs, Dr. ████, and two Class 3 guards entered the enclosement. Dr. Jacobs sat on one side of the table while SCP-XXXX sat on the other side, 1 meter away from the table with SCP-XXXX-2 on its leg. When questioned about their origin, both SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-2 showed resentment about their history and refused to answer any further questions about the subject.

Dr. Jacobs then moved on and asked about SCP-XXXX's mask, questioning whether it was on permanently or not. SCP-XXXX-2 replied that the mask was removable, and SCP-XXXX would be willing to show them what was underneath. When asked to do so, SCP-XXXX pulled the mask off. SCP-XXXX's face was cut in multiple areas, still bleeding along with the rest of the wounds on its body. SCP-XXXX's hair covered its right eye but showed that both eyes had a cross cut into the eyes, centering on the pupils. When asked if SCP-XXXX could see clearly with the wounds, SCP-XXXX-2 responded positively. SCP-XXXX put the mask back on, and SCP-XXXX-2 asked to continue.

Dr. Jacobs asked about the relationship SCP-XXXX held with SCP-XXXX-2 and SCP-XXXX looked away. SCP-XXXX-2 did not reply immediately but told Dr. Jacobs that SCP-XXXX was like a big brother to SCP-XXXX-2. SCP-XXXX-2 then told Dr. Jacobs that SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-2 held a more intimate relationship, but would rather not talk about it. Dr. Jacobs complied and stopped further questioning on the topic. Dr. Jacobs moved on to why SCP-XXXX acted like it had multiple personalities, only to have SCP-XXXX stand up abruptly. SCP-XXXX-2 tried to calm SCP-XXXX down but failed. SCP-XXXX went on to try and attack all personnel inside the enclosure. Pine scented gas was released into the enclosement and all personnel was evacuated. SCP slowed down due to the gas, and eventually walked back to its corner and sat down, leaving SCP-XXXX-2 alone. Two D-Class personnel were sent in to retrieve the table and chairs.

Test A - January 8, 2015

Subject: SCP-XXXX

Procedure: No less than ten guards are to enter the enclosure with SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-2. Eight guards are to restrain SCP-XXXX while the other two remove SCP-XXXX-2 and relocate it to a separate enclosure made the same as the original enclosure. Once SCP-XXXX-2 is safely removed, all personnel is to quickly exit the enclosure and study results.2

Results: SCP-XXXX quickly became agitated, repeatedly running into the door to try and return to SCP-XXXX-2. SCP-XXXX began to scream when it realized it couldn't leave the enclosement, stumbling around holding its head.

Analysis: After fifteen minutes of isolation, SCP-XXXX began mumbling to itself, although the words were illegible. SCP-XXXX moved over to the corner and curled up into a ball, facing away from personnel in the observation deck. After thirty minutes of isolation, SCP-XXXX stopped mumbling, and either allowed or didn't notice Foundation personnel enter the enclosement. Guards were sent to restrain SCP-XXXX and were met with little resistance. SCP-XXXX-2 was reintroduced to SCP-XXXX after guards exited the enclosure, leading to no response from SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX-2 stayed close to SCP-XXXX for the next 24 hours, promptly leading to SCP-XXXX returning to its original state.
