Special Containment Procedures: When not in use, SCP-XXXX should be stored in in a designated humidty-controlled Anomalous Item Storage. Testing with SCP-XXXX requires level 4 permission, and the required material will be granted from Medical. On-site procurement of blood for SCP-XXXX is strictly forbidden.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a statue of a female humanoid with its hands cupped in front of it, composed of the bark and wood of a Cupressus gigantea and Prunus serrulata specimen. In its inactive state, SCP-XXXX bears no remarkable properties. When at least one pint of blood is poured into its hands, the blood will be absorbed into the wood1 and SCP-XXXX will become animate.

SCP-XXXX claims to be the soul of a Daeva priestess named Aligija, who was slain by a slave rebellion at the end of the Daeva empire, Before her death, SCP-XXXX claimed to have used an unspecified ritual to bind herself into the wooden statue, to serve as a failsafe in case she was slain.

SCP-XXXX was discovered during an archaoelogical dig in Southern Siberia for Daevite artifacts. For approximately two years, SCP-XXXX was believed to be a non-anomalous statue. However, later research on Sarkic fleshcrafting appeared to refer to statues like SCP-XXXX, claiming they were a theoretical practice acheivable through necromany.

Interviewed: SCP-XXXX

Interviewer: Dr Montagne

Foreword: [Small passage describing the interview]

<Begin Log, [optional time info]>

Montagne: Please identify yourself for the record.

SCP-XXXX: I am Aligija, daeva daughter of the King Adorned in Blood.
Montagne: By the king, I assume you're referring to the deity known as the Scarlet King.
SCP-XXXX: The Scarlet King, the Crimson Khan, the Bloodsoaked Emperor… he has many names. But yes, I follow him.
Montagne: We'll have to discuss that later. But I wanted to ask you about your current state. Can you tell me more about it?
SCP-XXXX: It was a personal curiosity of mine. How much do you know of necromancy and blood magic?
Montagne: Precious little, I'm afraid.
SCP-XXXX: All of us were familiar with one or the other. But none of us were experts at both. They are oppossed in their very nature. While you may think of blood magic as slaughtering goats at an altar, that is a crude and base form of it. Blood magic is life itself, tapping into the power that runs through our veins. Necromancy, as you may guess, is diamterically opossed to it. They do not mix well. This was a test of mine. To see if I could combine them in a single work of art. It's reassuring to see it has.
Montagne: Did you intend to end up in this state?
SCP-XXXX: No, not exactly,
