Item #: SCP-004-INT

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-004-INT is kept inside a standard case for Safe objects, customized to secure jewellery items; locked inside its own steel-reinforced special purpose container at the Lusophone Operational Site-██ under constant audiovisual surveillance. The nature of the container allows for easy transportation between the DE, and PT branches of the Foundation due to the object's historical background. The exchange is done on-site, and transportation is performed by a small task force comprised of agents from the two relevant organisations.

SCP-004-INT is to receive standard treatment for the integrity maintenance of jewels, with 004-INT's specifications, on a biweekly basis. The object may be operated manually without complications as long as the operator is unaware of its anomalous characteristics1; if the operator is aware of 004-INT's anomalous characteristics, then it must not be embedded into an equipment; if such is the case, the equipment must not be worn by individuals without sanctioned approval from the Site Director for testing, or field use.

Sanctioned individuals carrying SCP-004-INT for research purposes, or field use should not activate the item for more than five (5) minutes in between 6-hour intervals without proper replenishment of biological energy reserves outside of designated Ley Areas; individuals sanctioned for use must go through the theoretical, and practical protocoled training annexed in the document, namely SCP-004-INT: Psychokinesis for Dummies. A standard equipment piece fit to preserve 004-INT will be made available in those events.

In the case of a containment breach, it is strongly advised that any rogue individual wearing SCP-004-INT must be taken into custody or terminated through means that avoid blood loss from the subject; nevertheless, the preferred methodology to deal with this scenario differs from each branch.


Description: SCP-004-INT is a pearl cut Phosphophyllite gemstone measuring 3.5 x 2.5 x 2 cm, despite irradiating a pale luminescence, the object's geological characteristics do not differ from its common counterparts. 004-INT may be bejewelled into any piece of equipment fit for its shape but it must be visible2 for its anomalous effects to be manifested. The object will present a sanguine-red colour when its effects are activated outside of a Ley Area.

When activated, SCP-004-INT will grant to its wearer pseudo-thaumaturgical abilities in the form of minor psychokinesis capabilities, allowing the subject control over objects independent of their physical state3 within their line of sight; objects can be manoeuvred, moved, and suspended amidst air4 in order to launch them like projectiles, create leverages, alter their position, or even as means of airborne transportation with force, strength, and speed determined by the subject.5

Albeit manifested by, the skill is not inherently comprehended by the subject, who requires proper knowledge of the capabilities of the item6, and training to control the pseudo-thaumaturgical abilities adroitly. SCP-004-INT requires an input of the user's physical energy in order to be activated, and maintained, similar to the physical strain of performing a menial task7 although a common threshold of ~five (5) minutes could be established throughout all subjects before they started to experience acute physical fatigue, once the threshold is reached, the negative psychophysical effects will increase gradually8, until the subject reaches a state of Syncope; after reanimation, they will not be able to activate 004-INT's anomalous capabilities during a variable period of time.

As a collateral effect, the blood of subjects that have activated, and maintained SCP-004-INT for at least two (2) minutes will display the same pale luminescence when the substance is removed from their bodies. The substance displays the characteristics of a TNT-equivalent explosive9 that can be detonated by the individual, or through standard demolition procedures, as per its common counterpart, after ~40 days the sanguine substance will expire if it is removed from the subject's body, or be completely filtered after an equally long period if the subject does not make use of 004-INT during that period. Studies do not show any chemical alteration of the blood cells.

Ley Areas: These zones comprise several geographical locations in regions with relevant influence from Germanic culture, and folklore, they are virtually imaginary boundaries that do not match current geopolitical borders, and designated areas present in modern political maps, comprising both urban and agricultural areas. The area and shape of these zones vary but seem to be connected with the presence of cultural, and folkloric elements present in a region, ranging from, but not exclusively, habits, aesthetics, landmarks, and especially historical value.

Whilst maintained inside the imaginary boundaries of a Ley Area, SCP-004-INT will release faint golden motes to swarm around its silhouette; the motes strengthen in number, and luminosity as the object approaches the imaginary centre10 of the boundary. Additionally, individuals using 004-INT will not require to spend their physical energy in order to activate, and maintain the object's anomalous properties, nor will they suffer any physiological/psychophysical drawback while inside, or after exiting, the designated Ley Area due to 004-INT's collateral effects caused by constant usage.


Recovery: SCP-004-INT was recovered amidst several common items from a collection of recovered belongings of a deceased German immigrant in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil. The relevant object was stored inside a simple case, accompanied by dossiers pertaining to an organisation named "Sonderkommando für Paranormales"11, associated with the Germanic war-effort, and the development, and study of "paranormal" phenomena. These documents include a diary pertaining to the individual, namely "Friedrich Altergott", a former SS scientist; a comprehensive map containing the known Ley Areas present in Germany (and its annexed territories dating from the period of the Second World War); several reports pertaining to the historical background of the item, and documents regarding the research performed by the competent organisation.

[Diary entries inside a collapsible table;

  • Introduction to the man, and the research;
  • Period of development during 1943 - 1944;
    • Expand his personality so he is not a black, and white Nazi;
  • Explore the use of the 004-INT, and the blood from subjects for the development of war material;
    • Germany used TNT in their anti-armour projectiles, so it might be a good hook.
    • A test with a PTRS-41 rifle maybe; I think it has potential.
  • Escape from Germany in 1945, with the relevant objects;
    • Explore the reason why he escaped;

[ Perhaps he was captured instead of being deceased? Might explore that possibility. ]


[ This part still requires major editing! ]

[Grom's valuable commentary
that would work as an SKP article, yes. The SKP did not only research anomalous technology, they also stored objects they found, and the power level of the object seems not too high for the SKP^^

Abouth this ley zones, I would not necessarily let the SKP know what these are or how they are called. This knowledge may have existed already then and the Foundation knows the term, but the SKP is more a scientific institute, maybe the researchers there did not know the term. They may have found out that it works depending on its location, and they may have found out that the location is in correlation with ancient mythological places. The knowledge about Ley zones may be completely on the side of the Foundation and other groups that have more relations to thaumaturgy and the occult^^

The person who brought it to Brazil might have been one of the scientists that got fired from the SKP when it was scaled down and may have stolen it. Or he may have been one of the last remaining scientists before the SKP's surrender and may have stolen and fled with it a short time before the US Army arrived in Kassel.

On January 30. 1945, Hitler had directly ordered Himmler to disband the SKP, so after that date, or at least after February 8. 1945, when Himmler gave in and ordered the SKP to destroy reports and paranormalies, nobody would greatly have cared for members who prefered to flee. They may have been reported to other parts of the SS, the RSHA maybe, but they themself have never had the means to make a big hunt for defectors
