Fig 1.1: Provisional Site-XXXX-B.

Special Containment Procedures: A perimeter around Provisional Site-XXXX-B is maintained by a steel wire mesh fence (approx. two meters in height) and three security guards. Three of its four entrances and all windows have been welded shut and shielded with sound-proofed steel-reinforced urethane-foam paneling. A weekly external inspection is conducted to fortify or replace these panels as needed.

The remaining entrance is enclosed inside a prefabricated modular containment chamber that has been sealed to the site's exterior. This chamber incorporates a pneumatic air-lock to provide safe access while minimizing the risk of exposure. Exploration of Provisional Site-XXXX-B's interior is to be accomplished via remote-operated drone only. Communication from Provisional Site-XXXX-B is to be disregarded; any organic tissue attempting to exit the site is to be incinerated immediately.

Provisional Site-XXXX-A has been demolished. The elevator shaft leading into its lower basement has been sealed with reinforced cement. No attempt to explore this area is to be made.

Fig 1.2: Neutrophils (a type of white blood cell) phagocytizing bacteria infected with SCP-XXXX.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a condition of eukaryotic cells characterized by dedifferentiation,1 absent or atypical apoptosis,2 a lack of cellular senescence,3 and anomalous, accelerated growth. Although a root cause has yet to be isolated, researchers have determined that SCP-XXXX can spread through phagocytosis4 of infected cells.

Hosts of infected cells experience a rapid onset of symptoms, including hyperphagia,5 auto-sarcophagy,6 and the development of genetically-exogenous teratomas.7 These tumors are chimeric,8 and include partial reconstructions of complex human tissue. The tumors expand into and consume adjacent tissue (including other tumors), which is then replicated and integrated into their own internal structure. Each tumor operates independently; depending on their level of development, some will even persist once removed from the host.

SCP-XXXX was discovered by Foundation agents in 2005 during an investigation into disappearances associated with the town of Birmingham, North Carolina (USA). Containment ultimately required both Foundation personnel and the town's population to be quarantined inside Provisional Site-XXXX-B (previously Saint Oswald's Elementary School). After several failed attempts to terminate infected organisms within the site, Foundation agents sealed and insulated it to prevent any additional risk of outside contamination.

Provisional Site-XXXX-A was Stonewall Correctional Institute (located near Birmingham, North Carolina). Although archival documents retrieved from local municipalities confirm the construction of a prison by this name in 1936, no evidence of its staff, attendance, or operation has been found.
