Integrated Containment Site-54

Official Designation: SCP Foundation East-German Primary Research and Integrated Containment Site

Site Identification Code: EGPRIC-Site-54


The first founded portion of Site-54.

General Information

Purpose: Research Site-54 is a sprawling urban complex located in, around, and below the city of Leipzig. Originally intended to act as a research centre for those anomalies with locations too erratic to permit permanent containment, it now serves as the primary containment zone for a moderately large number of semi-containable Keter-class anomalies, as well as handling investigations of most (if not all) potentially hazardous anomalous phenomena in the region.

Founded: 12 June 1946

Founding Director: Dr. Alton Romero

Location: Leipzig, Germany

Cover Story: Urban Property, Abandoned Urban Property, Industrial Storage, Disused Wing of Leipzig Hospital

Site Function: Delocalised Containment, Hazardous Anomalous Research, Vehicle Dispatch, Manned Containment Zone

Size: Total Land Area of 6.8 km2, prone to change as expansion and reconstruction continue.

Anomalies Under the Jurisdiction of Site-54:

Anomaly Designation Date of Containment Notes
SCP-015 04/04/1914 Anomaly was located 9 kilometres from the Site proper, and was placed under its purview. The Site has since constructed a small subterranean complex nearer to the anomaly, which is thankfully situated in a relatively uninhabited and largely Foundation-owned industrial compound.
SCP-4856 01/11/1949 Entity manifested within the north wing of Site-54, which had been established primarily to monitor anomalous activity in post-war Germany. The wing of the site was converted into a partially manned containment zone, and the minor anomalous phenomena housed there were transferred.
SCP-2668 20/05/1952 One of the first SCP-class anomalies deliberately assigned to the (still relatively minor) site, due to Germany's prominent status as a former part of the Holy Roman Empire and the frequency of SCP-2668-Applicable historical sites within the country.
SCP-2856 04/04/1962 Anomaly located 7 kilometres from the central compound. A link to SCP-015 is theorised, but remains conjecture due to lack of compelling evidence aside from location. It has since been utilised as a storage area and vehicle garage.
SCP-███ ██/██/████ [DATA REDACTED]
AO-Batch-042 ##/##/1975 Up to two-dozen anomalous, incompletely understood, or potentially useful vehicles were transferred to the site's storage. These include a go-kart that leaves footprints instead of tire tracks, a car capable of heating its exterior to 2700 °C, and (until Incident STRAY LEGION, where it was relegated to a site with lower chances of anomalous cross-contamination) SCP-462.
SCP-3663 19/03/1980 Assigned to the site due to their successful containment of SCP-4856 and experience dealing with hostile or semi-hostile anomalies at close quarters. The use of the preexisting maintenance tunnels saved an estimated ███,000 Euros in construction costs, and has greatly facilitated easier recontainment.
SCP-████ ██/██/████ [DATA REDACTED]
An entity of peculiar properties, and AO-0844 07/04/1974 The first item of the two is a mobile and sapient humanoid entity composed entirely of malleable gold alloy. The anomalous effect of the entity renders it unable to own or possess anything, up to and including an SCP file, designation, or permanent containment chamber. Anything considered to be the entity's will spontaneously combust within 48 hours, even if non-flammable. It is fed regularly under heuristic containment protocols, and allowed to temporarily reside in any containment chamber or office not currently in use — it is reported generally amiable by staff, albeit showing signs of poor impulse control and extreme pyrophobia. AO-0844 is a regulation basketball, the interior volume of which is exactly 4π/3 times that of a non-anomalous basketball. It is listed here to prevent the aforementioned anomaly from having its own entry in the table.
SCP-4417 N/A The only Thaumiel-class anomaly to have been held at Site-54, and technically-speaking the first to be housed there, having been unearthed during the Site's construction. Transferred away from the Site on ##/##/####, when its purpose became apparent. Currently on display for Level-3+ personnel at the nearby Research Site Tau (Prague, Czech Republic), with private viewings available on request.
SCP-907 ##/##/#### Transferred following the destruction of Site-26. Remains in the primary vehicle garage, with regular planned excursions available for all staff. Due to declining interest, plans are currently ongoing to form a dedicated research team assigned to the anomaly.
SCP-2790 ##/##/#### [DATA EXPUNGED]

The subterranean section of research zone A-54-B.

Secure Area 01:

  • A/B/C-Class residential block — Apartment complex outfitted with secure (Foundation-monitored) internet access and state-of-the-art surveillance systems. Currently housing 58 Foundation personnel, with a maximum capacity of 70.
  • D-Class residential block — Subterranean concrete cells, arranged along two central hallways (stacked vertically) beneath the A/B/C-Class residential block. Each is furnished with basic amenities, a selection of literature, and a 'window' granting artificial daylight. Can house 12 persons per floor, for a total of 24. Access is achieved via a single doorway on the uppermost floor, leading via elevator to the aforementioned staff residences, and via tunnel to Containment Area 02 — due to temperamental electrical systems, a paved walkway has been constructed alongside the standard tram.
  • Tertiary infirmary — todo

Secure Area 02:

  • Research centre — todo
  • Office block — todo
  • Secondary infirmary — Recuperation area for injured staff. Built to serve as a stopgap solution until said staff can be transferred to a dedicated medical facility. Was affected by a minor anomalous effect post-1941, causing all medical equipment to react as if the patient displayed situs inversus totalis1. This effect was essentially neutralised in 1997, when a CK-Class Reality Shift normalised the associated condition.

Containment Area 01:

  • Disused research facility — Currently home to SCP-4856, and monitored retro- and anterospectively by Forethought.aic.
  • Firing range — Training for on-site staff, most of whom are expected to be permanently armed (due to the danger posed by 'roaming' anomalous entities). Doubles as a testing ground for anomalous weaponry; this secondary purpose is not often used due to the potential damage to nearby civilian enterprises. Sounds masked by adjacent Foundation-owned processing plant.
  • C/D-Class residential block — Former civilian residences evacuated due to proximity to SCP-4856. Each building houses up to six employees, and may be used to store low-risk D-Class personnel not currently assigned to any active anomaly. Largely empty.

Containment Area 02:

  • Primary containment cells — Standard-model containment for anomalies during initial testing. Each is equipped with blast-shielding, and can be lowered or dropped down a vertical shaft more than twice the height of the chamber, in the event that immediate protection is needed.
  • Laboratories — Equipped with a wide range of Research & Containment technology and para-technology, most of which is salvaged from other Foundation Sites or anomalous locations. Permanently manned.
  • Primary infirmary — High-security medical bay, built to handle severe and urgent injuries and illnesses, both anomalous and mundane. Outfitted with equipment comparable to that of most modern hospitals, as well as both a rudimentary operating theatre and self-contained crematorium.

Containment Area 03:

  • E-Class residential block — Subterranean quarantine zone for personnel with recent exposure to anomalous entities, objects, or phenomena. Capable of housing up to 20 affected subjects at any one time.
  • ##



Anomalous Object AO-002762, under covert observation by Site-54's own Research Task Force — RTF-Nauðr-Zwei ("Ivory Towers").

Notable Containment Incidents:


SCP-2856 — Over the course of two weeks, Foundation-owned appliances within 400 metres of the building spontaneously malfunction, and subsequently disappear following their disposal. At the conclusion of the event, the two staff members permanently stationed within SCP-2856 are involved in a simultaneous self-sealing event — the first observed since the anomaly's categorisation — and deemed MIA. Shortly afterwards, containment procedures for the anomaly were updated to require a permanent team of six staff, rather than two.


SCP-3663 — See documentation, Addendum.2, Event-3663-Delta.

SCP-055 — No such anomaly was contained at the site. No transfer occurred. It was housed at Site-19. The division responsible can not be held responsible. No transfers of the anomaly have ever occurred. Can't fit square pegs in round holes.

SCP-2790 — Priority Alpha containment breach. The largest portion of Site-54 (Containment Area 02) is deemed fully compromised, followed quickly by both Secure Areas. SCP-4856 remains contained due to personnel's desire "not to see SCP-2790 hurt", and Protocol CB-S-04 ("Ex Situ") is initiated with unanimous Overseer approval. 59 staff members are successfully evacuated, and assigned long-term memetic treatment to overcome the lasting anomalous effects, as well as a drug regimen to help them cope with grief and depressive tendencies brought on by the loss of SCP-2790. Protocol CB-S-04 is completed in the following months, under the cover story of multiple unrelated gas and electrical fires. Subtle, low-potency amnestics are dispersed amongst the civilian population of Leipzig to deter further investigation. On 20/05/2016, all salvaged equipment is reassigned, replacement personnel are sourced, and Site-54 is once more deemed operational.
