Item #: SCP-5199

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-5199 is kept inside a low-security Safe Class anomalous item locker with a 4-digit passcode lock. Instances of SCP-5199-1 are to be kept within anomalous animal reserve domiciles should any instances emerge. These entities are to be fed daily with a sugar water solution feeder. Under no circumstances should SCP-5199-1 be disturbed.

Investigation into the identity of PoI-8002 is currently underway. All devices, materials, and items utilized by PoI-8002 is any way are to be collected for analysis.

Description: SCP-5199 is a short (10 cm in length) knife of unknown origin and composition in pristine condition. Microscopic inspection of SCP-5399's stylized handle reveals satanic imagery and iconography in a spiral pattern originating from the top of the hilt before descending to the pommel. The pommel itself bears a Septenary Sigil1 with a pentagram in the center.

SCP-5199's anomalous properties manifest when its holder makes a cut across the flesh of a living human being; regardless of the depth of the cut or its placement, human victims will remain alive for the following effects.

When a cut is made using SCP-5199, the individual will begin to slowly convulse and be in extreme distress. From there, the individual's skin begins to bloat as bat-like organisms (SCP-5199-1) emerge from the wound.

SCP-5199-1 appear as flying mammals from the order Chiroptera. These organisms are red in coloration, lack an epidermal layer and any facial features recognizable of its species2; instead, these entities possess human qualities across their faces such as the random placement of multiple human eyes spread across or a single human mouth capable of unhinging its jaws complete with lips. SCP-5199-1 are capable of vocalization in the form of low-baritone human voices speaking in unison3. How SCP-5199-1 is capable of these vocalizations despite some of the instances lacking a mouth to do so, remains unknown.

These creatures will immediately exit from any orifice in the body, while the wound itself is mostly used, oftentimes SCP-5199-1 will attempt to escape from either the nose, ears, eyes, and mouth of the subject but these ultimately depend on the placement of the wounds.

The amount of SCP-5199-1 instances that escape ranges between 20 to 35 inhabiting the individual. Once all entities leave, all that remains of the subject is their skin; which is completely empty of all internal organs, skeletal structure, muscle tissue, and even blood vessels. The skin itself permanently retains its elastic properties.

SCP-5199-1 appears to function with a hive mentality; often operating in unison and fighting other SCP-5199-1 colonies for territory. SCP-5199-1 instances are docile unless one of their members is attacked. By then, all entities belonging to that group will immediately scream at the attacker and proceed to bite or scratch at the provoker until the death of the entire SCP-5199-1 colony or the attacking individual.

Addendum 5199.1: Video Discovery
SCP-5199 was discovered inside the home of Bill Manger after a missing person's report was filed for both him and his daughter, Ellen. The parcel containing SCP-5199 contained an address that did not appear to exist anywhere geographically and was sent from an individual known as "Peter". Mr. Manger's phone was found alongside SCP-5199 on his coffee table where it appears that Mr. Manger had sent a total of 30 calls and 107 text messages to the number of his daughter. Ellen Manger did not reply to any of her father's texts or calls. Of note is that Mr. Manger's car was absent from the garage.

Three weeks later, Mr. Manger's car was found in a ravine near the Low Valley highway in Desmont, Idaho. The corpse within the vehicle was later revealed to be Mr. Manger himself and is concluded that he had driven himself off of the main road on purpose.

The video file was found within Mr. Manger's laptop which contained an invalid email address. The following is a transcript of the video.

The video begins as shaky camera movement obscures the visuals. The low-quality of the video makes it even more difficult to make out any

The shaking stops as the camera is set down in front of a couch in a darkened room. A young woman, tied up with rope and a ball gag covering her mouth, lies unconscious on the right side of the couch as an indistinct male voice shouts at her to wake up. A large volume of water later comes down on her as she immediately regains consciousness.

Unknown: Wake up, El. The show's starting.

The woman begins to breathe heavily and quiver from the shock. Her sobs can be heard through the gag. The man comes into frame wearing a brown jacket, denim pants, with a black balaclava over his face and sits on the couch beside the woman.

Unknown: Hey there, Billy. It's me. Yeah, didn't think it'd come to this, right?

The man reaches behind him and pulls out SCP-5199 and stabs it on the couch's arm.

Unknown: Look, I know we didn't see eye to eye. (The man adjusts himself on the couch) You didn't like- wait no, you never liked me. I get it, okay? I know. El, though… she loved me.
