The primary locus of SCP-XXXX

Item №: SCP-XXXX
Anomaly Class: Keter
Site Responsible: GBRC Site-90
Director: Liam Pvalle
Research Head: Dr. Tobias Zapata
Assigned Task Force: MTF λ-7
Level 3/XXXX
CLASSIFIED

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX can not be physically contained. Reports of individual instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be investigated by MTF Lambda-7 ("Into the Woods"). Should conclusive evidence be found, MTF λ-7 will head to the location and attempt to capture the instance. Cooperative instances are to be brought back to Site-90 and kept in a communal enclosure (dimensions of 20 x 20 x 3 meters) fitted with flora commonly found in a temperate forest, alongside environmental controls to mimic the weather and climate of said biome. The enclosure should be stocked on a monthly basis with fruits, vegetables, grains and, occasionally, █████.

Attempts to coerce uncooperative instances into containment are to be attempted by MTF λ-7 and, if successful, the instance is to be taken to the enclosure in Site-90. In the attempt to compel the creature to be contained, MTF λ-7 may use offers such as fruits, baked goods and, if necessary, █████. Meat products are prohibited. Should the instance not accept, it may be taken by force into a separate containment unit at Site-90 (dimensions 10 x 10 x 2 meters) where they may be kept and fed once a week until their cooperation or eventual expiration. Emphasis is to be made on cooperating with SCP-XXXX-1 when possible, for reasons detailed in Addenum 2.

Feral instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be terminated on contact.

Any persons suspected of having interacted with SCP-XXXX-1 are to be debriefed and given Class-B amnestics, then allowed to return to their homes. The deaths of victims of feral instances are to be treated as wildlife incident as a cover-up, and after approval from the Site-90 director the remains may be returned to their families. Surviving victims are to be debriefed when possible, and be given Class-C amnestics, alongside a cover-up given on a case-by-case basis by the responsible agents, followed by reentry into society. Should the victim be deemed unfit for reintroduction, they may be humanely euthanised, and their remains returned to their families.

Should an instance of SCP-XXXX-1 come into contact with a large population, MTF Gamma-5 ("Red Herrings") is to be dispatched for clean-up. Population centres with confirmed sightings of SCP-XXXX-1 may be sprayed with Class-A amnestics before and after containment is attempted. Population centres with a population larger than 100,000 citizens have not had any reports of SCP-XXXX-1 sightings, but should one occur, both MTF γ-5 and MTF λ-7 are to carry out the search and contain operations in tandem to ensure success in the fastest time possible.

Research into the origins of SCP-XXXX is currently headed by Dr. Zapata, with a focus on either stopping the apparition of SCP-XXXX-1 instances, or on predicting said apparitions.


Description: SCP-XXXX is a spatiotemporal distortion centred around a point in the New Forest, England, responsible for the creation of entities (SCP-XXXX-1) resembling evolutionary descendants of Homo sapiens. The apparition of SCP-XXXX-1 is sporadic and unpredictable, but appears to be limited to a radius of ~80km from the centre of SCP-XXXX, with an mean rate of 23 instances per annum. Rare cases of instances outside of this zone are known, but are believed to simply be the result of SCP-XXXX-1's migratory habits.

Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 physically deviate from baseline humans in numerous ways, including:

  • A jaw and digestive system adapted to a purely herbivorous diet.
  • Severely lower average percentages of both body-fat and muscle.
  • A posture more closely resembling that of modern-day apes, resulting in larger knuckles and a more prominently curved spine.
  • A smaller skull, with a cranial cavity dominated by thicker layers of bone and cerebrospinal fluid.
  • A highly elongated neck, and a widened lower body to accommodate the additional weight.
  • An overall reliance on easily-foraged nutrients, and a lack of natural defences against predators.

Additionally, no instance of SCP-XXXX-1 to-date has demonstrated language comprehension, a grasp of complex counting techniques, or any other marker of higher intelligence. Instances have demonstrated wariness of humanity, but no awareness of their evolutionary lineage, and are non-hostile in 95% of cases. In the remaining 5%, SCP-XXXX-1 display hostility to all humanoid creatures, and a violent aversion to certain elements of human society such as buildings and processed food1. Additional distinguishing features — primarily discolouration of the skin and eyes — is also common. Disease or psychological trauma are believed to be the root cause. See addendum.

The significance of SCP-XXXX's location is unknown currently unclear, pending further investigation.
