Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a cell with steel walls located at Site 17. Due to the unknown properties of SCP-XXXX, it is to be kept under heavy surveillance in the case of sudden activity. No Special Containment Procedures are needed at this time.

With the events that transpired after retrieval of SCP-XXXX, it was moved to Area-03S in the northern region of Canada. For more information please refer to the Incident Log.

SCP-XXXX is currently being kept at Area-03S, a small compound consisting of living quarters for staff and containment cell for SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX' cell consists of two cubes within each other, spaced 2m apart. The outer cube is composed of austenitic steel layered with nickel measuring 2m in thickness. The inner cube, which acts as the main cell for SCP-XXXX is of identical construction. The dimensions for the outer cell are 8m by 8m by 8m, while the inner cell is 4m by 4m by 4m.

Under no circumstances should SCP-XXXX be exposed to another SCP or personnel under the effects of an SCP without approval of 05 Council. If such an event occurs SCP-XXXX must be re-contained by usage of force.

Once unconscious, SCP-XXXX must be brought back to its containment cell before it wakes. Anyone caught attacking SCP-XXXX after being rendered unconscious or while its not in A.S will be reprimanded.

Description: SCP-XXXX body is almost entirely featureless, the only exceptions being a human mouth (placed in the middle of the face) and muscle like tendons visible from underneath its "skin." SCP-XXXX body is black in color and glassy in composition, making it very fragile. The tendons that can be seen only contract when SCP-XXXX is in its A.S, leaving it unknown as to how it moves normally. When not in A.S, SCP-XXXX is sentient and comprehends the majority of spoken language, by what means are unknown. Its temperament is timid, skittish and reserved, preferring to keep to itself and avoid conflict but will usually speak when spoken to.

SCP-XXXX sees through what is best described as a modified form of magnetoreception, allowing it to perceive the exact position of all objects interacting with Earth's magnetic field. The form of magnetoreception SCP-XXXX possess is potent enough that it still works even when within austenitic metals but the range is reduced to the size of the of the container holding it.

When SCP-XXXX perceives an anomalous entity, it enters what has been dubbed an alternative state (A.S.). When this occurs SCP-XXXX tendons contract and it attempts to destroy the anomalous object(s) it perceived. While in A.S its physical capabilities are greatly enhanced while its psychological capabilities are greatly reduced. For more information on A.S., please refer to Addendum-S.

Recovery: SCP-XXXX was discovered in a lab located in ████, Pakistan on █/██/████. This lab was located via satellite imaging when a G.O.C. task force and another unidentified group were found fighting outside it. In concerns of anomalous objects that might be present, MTFs along with a containment unit were dispatched to the area to bring the situation under control and to investigate the lab. Once arriving, the G.O.C task force was found to have been eradicated by non-anomalous means. On orders from the Foundation, MTFs were instructed to breach and clear the lab. This resulted in the retrieval of SCP-XXXX and its transportation to Site-17.


Along with SCP-XXXX, several 'tissue samples' of SCP-XXXX were also brought in, having been 'dislodged' during its recovery. Deeper analysis of these samples showed that SCP-XXXX is made of high carbon-content glass-like substance of unknown make or origin, the atomic structure failing to match up to any known substances. The closest match that could be found was to that of obsidian and other variations of volcanic glass, however these similarities were distant. Pieces of this tissue also showed to be fragile, shattering into pieces when removing the objects lodged in them. As a result of the fragile composition of these samples, not enough testing could be done to gather conclusive information.

Incident-AO: Once brought back to Site-17 SCP-XXXX was placed in steel cell, located in an isolated wing. SCP-XXXX lay dormant for two months before waking and breaching containment, breaking through the solid steel walls. SCP-XXXX then quickly made its way through the wing, ignoring the guards who were shooting at it and all personnel in its path. Soon it reached a 3m steel shutter that had been dropped when the wing went on lock down, halting its progress. SCP-XXXX assaulted the shutter continuously but to no effect. Guards fired on SCP-XXXX until it was rendered unconscious, wherein it was re-contained without further incident.

Incident-AO-2: Two months after the first incident SCP-XXXX woke up and then proceeded to try and breach its cell. Guards had been placed inside at the time and immediately began firing at SCP-XXXX. After about 20 seconds of sustained fire, SCP-XXXX was rendered unconscious. No sizable dents were made to its cell wall.

Note: I suggest we send a task force back to where we found this thing. It seemed contained then and I have a feeling it could've been based on what that [[REDACTED]] was made of. -Dr. Finch
