Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: An area with a radius of 100 km in the North Atlantic ocean is regularly patrolled by designated elements of NTF-Delta 7 ("Northern Storm"). Buoy's have been deployed and anchored to the ocean floor to designate the border of this zone, and have been equipped with sonar/radar detection to alert patrolling craft of approaching vessels. Vessels attempting to, or entering the area above SCP-3709 are to be redirected.

References to SCP-XXXX in written Orcadian myth and historical documents have been altered to reflect the geography of the island of Eynhallow. All references of SCP-XXXX sinking have been removed.

Containment, archaeological surveys, recovery and documentation of anomalous and non-anomalous artifacts require approval from the joint committee established by the Foundation-Finnfolk cooperative treaty of 2017.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the designation given to:

  • SCP-XXXX-1 The inter and exoskeletal remains of a large aquatic crustacean resembling SCP-3700-1. Unlike other crustaceans, SCP-XXXX-1 possesses both an internal skeletal structure in addition to it's rigid exoskeleton. It's cause of death is believed to have been a traumatic injury which seperated the cephalon from the thorax and abdomen.
  • A sunken landmass, 200 meters in height, 23 kms in length, 15 kms in width shaped like a crescent moon with a large cylindrical portion jutting from the concave face. This is designated SCP-XXXX-2. SCP-XXXX-2 is attached to the head of SCP-XXXX-1 roughly five km from the rest of the remains.
  • A sunken landmass, 200 meters in height, 52 km in length, 28 km in width, roughly resembling a long cylinder in shape known as SCP-XXXX-3. SCP-XXXX-3 is attached to the thorax and abdomen of SCP-XXXX-1.
  • SCP-XXXX-4: An urban complex stretching 10 km across SCP-XXXX-3's surface, carved from large crystalline structures similar to those used to build portions of SCP-4700.1

Through extensive study and consultation with surviving Finnfolk scholars and records, SCP-XXXX has been confirmed to be the ancesteral home of the Homo Aqueous. Colloquially, SCP-XXXX has been referred to as "Finfolkaheem" in the small number of texts and myths compositing the larger body of Orcadian folklore in which the Finnfolk are of concern to humans.

SCP-XXXX-2, -3, and -4 are of particular archaeological, environmental, and biological interest due to numerous compounding factors. SCP-XXXX-2 and -3 display marked signs of agricultural cultivation. Notably, several previously undescribed species of fruitbearing aquatic plants indicate that SCP-XXXX spent a significant portion of the year partially or fully submerged. Non-cultivated aquatic trees, scrubs, and bushes exist in large aquatic forests and grasslands that dot both -2 and -3. These features, along with encounters with species of previously uncharacterized fauna indicate a complex ecosystem that evolved away from a more amphibious existence.

Smaller, more rural settlements dot the surface of both -2 and -3, indicating regular habitation outside of SCP-XXXX-4 during most of the year.

SCP-XXXX-4, like many settlements that grew into large urban environments from a few villages, is chaotic and unorganized in layout. Several large spaces in various geometric shapes are found dotted throughout the settlement, these spaces are connected by larger thoroughfares to smaller footpaths comparable to early European settlements. Buildings and structures are, as previously mentioned, carved from large crystalline projections emanating from the rock layers. In spite of being submerged for what is estimated to be the better part of five millenia, these structures show no signs of weathering or degradation typically found on artificial structures made of rock or metal. Exploration of several larger complexes have revealed well preserved remains of the former inhabitants. Due to this, further exploration now requires explicit level 5 approval.
