SCP-XXXX-2

Item #: SCP-XXXX-EX

Object Class: Humanoid/Artifact

Containment Class: Keter Safe Explained

Special Containment Procedures: The cadaver of SCP-XXXX-1 is stored in the Cryogenic Biovault at Site-17. Access to SCP-XXXX-1 must be supervised by at least two other personnel. In addition, access to SCP-XXXX-1 will be recorded in the personnel's permanent record.

SCP-XXXX-2 has been disassembled and its parts split among three separate Safe-class lockers. Reassembly is presently forbidden.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the collective designation for two anomalies associated with the Foundation Elimination Coalition, an alliance of several Groups of Interest united under the common goal of destroying the Foundation.

SCP-XXXX-1 is General George Bowe, the former Foundation liaison to the U.S. Military. Prior to his "death" in 1983, Bowe somehow attained an anomalous immunity to death. He became the primary figure behind the Foundation Elimination Coalition in late 2020.

SCP-XXXX-2 is an anomalous mechanical device created by SCP-XXXX-1's scientific personnel. Details of SCP-XXXX-2's internal functions are unclear. However, it is known that SCP-XXXX-2 is capable of killing a wide variety of entities. A demonstration of SCP-XXXX-2's usage has yet to occur.

History: SCP-XXXX-1 resurfaced at some point in late 2020. He somehow put himself in contact with the Chaos Insurgency, and used its influence as a catalyst to form the Foundation Elimination Coalition. Using the combined forces of the Chaos Insurgency, the Church of the Broken God, the Church of the Scarlet King, and numerous other persons of interest, the Foundation Elimination Coalition was able to capture Site-19.

By early 2021, the Foundation Elimination Coalition had secured a sizable territory of Foundation sites in the West coast of the United States, as well as several others worldwide.

Addendum 01: Recovered Communications

<Begin Log>

UNKNOWN: Your clock is ticking, Bowe.

SCP-XXXX-1: Getting these fools in order more taxing than it might appear.

UNKNOWN: I believe our deal involved you being able to retain control over this coalition.

SCP-XXXX-1: Truth be told, I'm surprised it even got off the ground. The 093 entity left for another dimension after we took Site-20. The Church of the Broken God and the Church of the Scarlet King are already infighting and creating their own factions. Even your men are still deserting by the dozens; I think they best work alone, to be honest.

UNKNOWN: My sources say the Foundation is planning to take back Site-19. You may have taken 17 and 20, but if 19 falls, so does the coalition. I'd rather this not all be in vain. What are you going to do?

<Two gunshots ring out. Bowe screams in pain.>

UNKNOWN: Are you okay, Bowe?

<Another some time, another gunshot rings out.>

SCP-XXXX-1: Yes, just a minor annoyance. I think I'm going to try the plan we discussed at first.

UNKNOWN: After all this war? That sounds wasteful.

SCP-XXXX-1: I've been digging around in the lower levels here, and I found a device. It has Fritzwilliam's name on it. With some modification, I think we could make a pretty convincing god-killer.

UNKNOWN: I'll trust you on this one, Bowe. I think we both know what happens if this doesn't work.

SCP-XXXX-1: I understand.

Addendum 02: Infiltration of Site-19

MEETING OF THE SITE DIRECTORS EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE


<Begin Log>

Dir. Light: Let's talk about Site-19. We've stopped Bowe's advances for now, but I think we all know he's planning something. The faster we can stop him, the better. Dr. Moose had an idea that she would like to present.

Dr. Moose: Thank you, Light. First of all, our attempts to retake Site-19 by force have failed. Site-19 is simply too well-fortified at this point for us to take it without irreversibly destroying it. Our assassins have also failed. Why, again?

Colonel James: I don't know. We have… recovered footage. Our best assassin sneaks in and shoots Bowe. Two minutes later, Bowe comes back to life and shoots him back.

Dr. Moose: That's troubling. Anyways, my idea is this. Dr. Dan, could you please throw a cream pie in my face?

Dr. Dan: What?

Dr. Moose: It is absolutely instrumental to Bowe's defeat that I throw a cream pie in your face.

Dir. Light: Moose, for the love of God, just tell us what's going on.

Dr. Moose: After the unfortunateness in 2009, I elected to be the one to hold onto SCP-050. Its actions in my office have been annoying, but tolerable. I haven't had a true office since I was routed from Site-19. Therefore, SCP-050 is still residing in Site-19.

Dr. Moose: It hasn't seen a prank in years. If someone were to prank me sufficiently, SCP-050 would relocate it to their office. Then, if I were to prank them back, it would relocate to my office. If we were to attach, say, an EMP charge to SCP-050, we could disable Site-19's defenses for a sizable amount of time.

Dir. Light: That sounds overcomplicated. Why don't we just have an agent plant an EMP charge in Site-19? We already have a sufficient number of people undercover there.

Coordinating Agent Samson: We don't have men in Site-19.

Dir. Light: I beg your pardon?

Coordinating Agent Samson: Bowe got ahold of some variant of SCP-2140, and he's plastered it all over the site. All of my men stopped a week ago.

Dir. Light: Are you sure we haven't been compromised, then?

Rsr. Mulciber: The Counterconceptual Division is working on a way around that. We already have a computer that can analyze a scene and determine if it contains an instance of SCP-2140-1 in under half a millisecond. This is much faster than past models of this kind.

Dr. Dan [REDACTED]: For the record, I did that on purpose.

Rsr. Mulciber: I… don't even want to consider the ethical ramifications of that.

Dr. Moose: Okay, so we've delivered an EMP charge into Site-19. Everything's knocked out. What happens next? Do we just get a sniper to kill Bowe?

Dir. Light: Not that easy. Bowe's an immortal.

Dr. Dan [REDACTED]: Like, he can't die?

Coordinating Agent Samson: I've personally authorized a dozen of our best assassins to take out Bowe. Half of those managed to deliver a bullet into Bowe's head. Despite reporting a successful mission, in an hour we confirm that Bowe's still walking around the site. We had our last assassin wear a video harness. Apparently, he just got back up, shot him, and then went back to his daily routine.

Dir. Light: Okay, so we don't kill him. What if we just capture him, and put him in a containment cell somewhere.

Dr. Moose: Sounds right.

Dir. Light: Once the EMP goes off, we can send in Alpha-9. Iris and Alexei are ready at a moment's notice. We've also been priming SCP-5031 for a mission like this.

Dr. Moose: Wait a minute, we're moving too far ahead. We're forgetting something.

Dir. Light: What's that?

<Dr. Moose puts her briefcase on the table and opens it. Inside it is a cream pie.>

Dr. Dan [REDACTED]: Oh, yeah…

<End Log>

Addendum 03: Operation CAMERA-CLONE

<Begin Log>

<Recovered footage from a camera inside Dr. Moose's former office, now SCP-XXXX-1's office. He appears to be preparing SCP-XXXX-2, tinkering with it using a screwdriver.>.

<Suddenly, SCP-050 manifests on SCP-XXXX-1's desk, carrying an EMP charge. SCP-XXXX-1 yells in shock, and picks up SCP-050. The camera goes offline after the EMP detonates, destroying all of the electronics on-site.>

<End Log>

Addendum 04: Recorded Conversation

<Begin Log>

A9-8: There's something hiding in that wall panel.

SCP-2273: It could be a prisoner. Let's not light it up just yet.

A9-6: Go peel it open, Alexei.

SCP-2273: Why can't we have SCP-5031 do it? Isn't he immortal?

A9-8: We're not going to use SCP-5031 to defuse bombs.

SCP-2273: Oh, but you're going to use me? I'm mortal, you know. I'll kick the bucket and die eventually.

A9-8: Alright, fine. <To SCP-5031.> Wall. Open.

<SCP-5031 emits a chirp as MTF Alpha-9 closes their eyes. It slices open the wall, but disappears from reality after a scream is heard.>

Dr. Crow: Augh! Don't kill me, don't kill me! I'll tell you everything I know! I just want to live!

A9-8: Kain Pathos Crow? Is that you?

Dr. Crow: Wait. You're Alpha-9, aren't you? Thank God.

SCP-2273: What are you doing here?

<An explosion rings through the halls from the fight above.>

Dr. Crow: What do you mean? At Site-19, or in the walls?

A9-8: To be honest, I'm curious about both.

Dr. Crow: When Bowe showed up, I figured that the best place to hide was under his nose. That way, I could be a spy, and siphon information for High Command.

A9-8: We haven't heard from you since Site-19 went under. Everyone just assumed you crawled in a hole and expired.

Dr. Crow: Yeah, my balls dropped about an hour in. I've been storing food in the walls in case we ever needed to bug out. So I've been fine. I even have a GameBoy back here. You wouldn't believe what level my Pokemon are.

A9-8: I don't care. One of my guys will escort you back to the base camp.

Dr. Crow: Wait a minute. Who's in charge of this whole operation?

A9-8: Samson and Light are running the whole shebang.

Dr. Crow: Can you set up a radio with 'em?

A9-8: I'll try.

<Extraneous information redacted.>

Dir. Light: So you've just been hiding this whole time? How did you not end up exposed to SCP-2140?

Dr. Crow: Call of the attack. Bowe has a secret weapon.

Dir. Light: That he's immortal? We already know. That's why we sent New Hope; we're hoping we can capture him.

Dr. Crow: Not that. He and his team of scientists are working on some kind of god-killer gun. From what I've overheard, it's supposed to be able to kill anything. Just shoots a beam and, whoops, you're eliminated from the universe.

Dir. Light: So? We surprise him. He won't be able to fire the gun at all.

Dr. Crow: You don't understand. There's a little bit of context here.

<The conversation is interrupted by a Gearrender rounding the corner and seeing Alpha-9. A9-2 fires two rockets at the Gearrender, destroying it.>

Coordinating Agent Samson: Spit it out, we don't have all day.

Dr. Crow: The entire coalition is held together with duct tape and glitter at this stage. The two churches are at eachother's throats constantly. Even the CI folk are thinking of overthrowing Bowe.

Coordinating Agent Samson: How do you know all this?

Dr. Crow: I've had nothing to do for the past four months but play Pokemon and listen to people.

Dir. Light: How does the god-killer factor into this?

Dr. Crow: I don't think Bowe is going for domination anymore. He's trying to aim for the throat. I'm not too keen on anomalous theory nowadays, but I remember that a lot of it comes from Apex-tier Pluripotent entities. Gods. Bowe wants to kill them. He think it'll cause the anomalous to cease to exist.

Dir. Light: Won't that cause reality to cease to exist too?

Dr. Crow: Hell if I know. He's going to hold them hostage. I don't know what he wants, but I don't think it's gonna end up pretty.

Dir. Light: Alright. Where is Bowe now?

Coordinating Agent Samson: He's getting together an escort to take him out of the site. He's in the North Wing of the Clef Building.

A9-8: Great, we'll be there. We'll try to swipe the device off of his hands before he can activate it.

SCP-2273: He's bluffing. This all sounds ridiculous. He's going to kill the gods? And that somehow makes everything anomalous stop being anomalous? It's absurd!

A9-8: Either way, we should still probably stop him. A9-5, can you take Crow back to the base?

Dr. Crow: Wait, give me a second to grab my GameBoy. Bright's not going to believe that I caught a shiny Latios.

Dir. Light: Bright's been retired for years, Crow. They froze his amulet in concrete.

Dr. Crow: Really? Damn.

<End Log>

Addendum 05: Death of SCP-XXXX-1

BODY CAMERA FOOTAGE


<Begin Log>

<Camera is owned by A9-8. The detachment of MTF Alpha-9 ("New Hope") is standing outside of Bowe's chamber.>

SCP-XXXX-1: You can come in now, by the way.

<Silence.>

SCP-2273: <Whipser.> He's holding a box with a gun barrel on it. I can't see what's inside.

SCP-XXXX-1: …alternatively, you don't come in. That's fine. It's not like it makes much of a difference anyways.

A9-7: What's he talking about?

A9-4: His weapon, maybe?

SCP-XXXX-1: The gun I hold in my hand can kill anything. One shot fells the strongest man, or the most powerful god. One shot can even kill me.

<SCP-XXXX-1 erupts into a sudden fit of laughter.>

SCP-XXXX-1: Oh, hell, what am I saying? I'm not a god. I'm barely even a man at this point. I'm a ghost! I'm a bloody ghost!

<A9-8 rounds the corner and faces Bowe.>

A9-8: Put down the weapon, Bowe. You're surrounded. There's nowhere for you to go.

Bowe: You know what? You're completely right. I'm not about to say I'm not a good shot, but there's no way I can shoot my way out of this.

<Bowe enters a coughing fit. He doubles over, still holding SCP-XXXX-2.>

Bowe: In fact, there's no way I'm making it out of this alive. The Foundation's going to string up my body like a trophy. You're going to kill me. The Foundation has won again. Woop-de-doo!

A9-8: We have orders to capture you alive. Put the device down.

Bowe: Oh ho ho! You're going to leave me alive? Best joke I've heard all day. I've gotten everything I've wanted, actually. Sooner or later, you're going to kill me.

<Bowe laughs.>

Bowe: There's a special level of Hell for people like me, I think. My gut's telling me there's only one way out of there. I'm not giving you the catharsis of finding out.

<Bowe points SCP-XXXX-2 at fires. His head explodes into viscera and his body collapses.>

A9-8: Shit! Director Light, Bowe shot himself. Should we still take his body?

Dir. Light: Yes. He's going to come back to life.

<End Log>

Closing Statement: SCP-XXXX-1 did not come back to life. SCP-XXXX-2 was secured and brought to Site-31. After SCP-XXXX-1's death, most Foundation Elimination Coalition troops were routed from the Site.

In the wake of this incident, the Foundation Elimination Coalition was dissolved. Involved Groups of Interest returned to their usual hostility. SCP-XXXX has been reclassified as Safe.
