Item #: SCP-5239
Euclid

Special Containment Procedures

SCP-5239 is contained in a standard humanoid containment chamber, outfitted with a bed, a desk, and a bookshelf containing several non-horror related books, rotated monthly. SCP-5239 is allowed to exit the chamber once a day for exercise in the courtyard, contingent on general compliance. SCP-5239-1 materials should be locked away separately from SCP-5239 and only returned during testing.

Under no circumstances should SCP-5239 be addressed as Abraxas, Dread-Master of Darkness, High Necromancer of Hell, The Seventh Servant of Satan or any similarly thematic names.

Description

SCP-5239 is Blaine Veers, a 16 year old human from Trenton, New Jersey. SCP-5239 is a Type III-Limited1 reality bender, but is only capable of performing anomalous feats when equipped with SCP-5239-1-A through D.

SCP-5239-1-A is a hardcover book claiming to be the fictional Necronomicon from the works of author H.P. Lovecraft.2 SCP-5239-1-A is filled with instructions in poorly-translated Latin claiming to be spells of various facets of necromancy, from divining with spirits to raising the deceased as zombies. When not being used by SCP-5239, the book is entirely non-anomalous.

SCP-5239-1-B through D are a black robe, a pair of red eye contacts, a pair of black leather fingerless gloves, and a tube of black eyeliner. SCP-5239 claims the usage of these items during testing enhances its anomalous abilities. However, instances can be swapped out for similar products with little to no change in performance.

Discovery

SCP-5239 came to the Department of Spectral Phenomena's attention on 08/11/2019, after numerous police reports of disturbances at a local graveyard. Witnesses reported seeing trespassers dressed as ghosts that vanished upon attempts to apprehend them.

Undercover operatives set up hidden cameras throughout the site, noticing SCP-5239 among the spectral entities. Foundation operatives later tracked SCP-5239 to a local bookstore, taking them into Foundation custody.

Interview

Testing Log

[BEGIN LOG]

SCP-5239, equipped with SCP-5239-1, enters the testing room.

Bliss: Good morning, Blaine. How are the new books?

SCP-5239: Pretty good, I guess. Any chance I can get the fifth one in the series as well? Think it's come out by now.

Bliss: I'll see what I can do. But for now, we should get on with the testing.

SCP-5239 steps forward, looking at the corpse of D-2343 on the table.

SCP-5239: Uh… You didn't kill this guy just for the testing, did you?

Bliss: Of course not, that would be an utter waste. Bad case of appendicitis.

SCP-5239:

Bliss: Is something wrong, Blaine?

SCP-5239: Sorry, I'm just not really used to seeing dead bodies. Like, I usually stuck with ghosts, and most of the skeletons had all their fleshy bits rotted away. A bit hard to look at.

Bliss: If you'd rather deal with a skeleton, we can swap that-

SCP-5239: No, it's fine, it's fine. I can do this.

SCP-5239 takes a deep breath, and then begins reciting a passage from SCP-5239-1-A.

SCP-5239: Exurge a mortuis, ex carne homo. Exurge a mortuis, et ambules in sempiternum et egressus de loco spiritus mundi. Et tu iubes!3

Hume detectors record a 20% dip from baseline reality.

D-2343's body jerks up.

D-2343: Uh….

Bliss: D-2343, can you hear me?

D-2343 moans intelligibly, falling off the table.

D-2343: Brains…

Bliss: D-2343, please respond in the affirmative if you can hear me.

D-2343 begins walking around the chamber, arms raised in a stereotypical "zombie" pose.

SCP-5239: Um, hold on, hold on…. Da mihi absconditorum es cognitor, immortuorum augentes!4

D-2343: Secreta immortuos non vestrum est scire. Cessabunt sive perpetuo versatus est.5

Bliss: Hmm. Have you ever held a conversation with any reanimated persons before, Blaine?

SCP-5239: Well, kind of? I mean I can tell them what to do; grab that book, open that door, scare off that kid… I mean I didn't really think about talking to them that much, sorry I should've had this checked out, I'm really sorry-

Bliss: It's nothing. Can you recite the counterspell now?

SCP-5239 recites the counterspell, and D-2343 falls to the ground. Hume levels return to baseline.

Bliss: Thank you, that will be all for today.

SCP-5239: ..Sorry. Did I mess something up?

Bliss: What? No, you seemed to have followed the instructions well. We can hardly fault a 16 year-old for not speaking Latin. Marshall, can you show them back to- thank you. See you tomorrow.

[END LOG]


While we've been searching for a solution to our little [[[SCP-5370|blackroom]] problem, it seems SCP-5239 is not that answer. Rather than bending reality to reanimate the consciousness of the deceased, SCP-5239 instead appears to instead manipulate the body into a crude display of life. It's creations are more fleshy/incorporeal automatons rather than true reanimations.

Considering the costs required to properly maintain our SRAs, and the exceedingly narrow circumstances in which SCP-5239 can even be recognized as anomalous, I'm proposing we amnectize and release it back into the civilian world. No further value can be gained by its containment. -Doctor Bliss

Proposal granted. -O5-6

Exit Interview

Interviewer: Dr Bliss

Interviewed: SCP-5239

[BEGIN LOG]

Bliss: Well, looks like I've got some good news today.

SCP-5239: What, you're letting me paint my room black?

Bliss: No, not that. But I've put in a request to my superiors, and it looks lik we'll be releasing you soon. There's still a few details left to tie up, but-

SCP-5239: You're… you're letting me go?

Bliss: Yes, Blaine. You'll be back home by the end of the week. So it looks like this will be our last interview. If there's anything you want to ask about the process, now's the time.

SCP-5239: Can I stay here?

Bliss: …What? You want to stay here, at the Foundation?

SCP-5239 nods.

SCP-5239: I mean, I know I messed up the last test, but I can do other things. Like I could make zombies or something for you guys to use. I can be useful. Can I stay?

Bliss: One moment.
