Item #: SCP-001

Special Containment Procedures: Containment of SCP-001 is personally overseen by the Overseer Council.

Description: SCP-001 is comprised of two elements: SCP-001-1, a human, and SCP-001-A, a mechanical device. SCP-001-A was constructed by SCP-001-1.

SCP-001-1 will only respond (positively) to Foundation personnel if referred to as ‘the Founder [of the Foundation];’ if referred to by its SCP designation, SCP-001 will become irritated. SCP-001-1 vocally supports the containment and analysis of anomalous phenomena, and is largely compliant but discomforted in its own containment.

SCP-001-1 is immortal, and does not age. Although SCP-001 can be physically damaged and will heal at an appropriate rate for a mundane human, its longevity enables it to recover from more severe injuries if given sufficient time to do so.

SCP-001-A will produce a detailed prediction of outcomes for a specified event when prompted, and will also factor in the influence of its own predictions; as such, at least one outcome registered by SCP-001-A will inevitably occur. SCP-001-A can also be utilised to explore the effect of outcomes that did not occur, up to the level of detail requested from it.

SCP-001-A will often provide outcome predictions based upon blatantly incorrect information; these errors are most common when SCP-001-1 or SCP-001-A are directly involved in the outcome of the event (beyond providing predictions), and fall under one of two categories:

  1. SCP-001-A will report that SCP-001-1 was assassinated by a military group shortly prior to its initial containment, but has nonetheless remained in containment ever since; SCP-001-A will also report that as a result, it was never constructed.
  2. SCP-001-A will report that, along with its standard anomalous properties, SCP-001-1 also exhibits SCP-001-A’s ability to accurately predict future events; SCP-001-A will also report that as a result, it was never constructed.

SCP-001 has been in containment since the establishment of the Foundation.
