Item №: SCP-XXXX

Anomaly Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: The entryway to SCP-XXXX has been sealed off. A designated mobile task force (MTF Nu-14) is to monitor the expanse of the surrounding area and prevent any emerging entities from moving any more than 50 meters away from the entryway. Civilian attempts at accessing SCP-XXXX are also to be halted, though given the proliferating local folklore surrounding SCP-XXXX, this has been deemed a low-level threat.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a subterranean cistern, found underneath the neighboring forest of the unincorporated town of Greyfeld, Quebec, a predominantly Mekhanite settlement established in 1906. The entryway to SCP-XXXX is closed off by a large, wooden hatch, with symmetrical glyphs carved onto the surface and pointing towards the center, all individually lined with dried blood. These symbols, along with several recovered artifacts found in and around SCP-XXXX, suggests SCP-XXXX was utilized, and perhaps inhabited, by a subsect of Neo-Sarkicism known as "Adytum's Wake".

SCP-XXXX's main anomalous properties manifest between 21:00 and 00:00 local time. During this period, a large, semi-tangible gust of wind, designated SCP-XXXX-1, will form within SCP-XXXX, eventually unlocking and opening up the entryway's hatch so it can emerge. Once emerged, it will then proceed to move towards the nearest building to the entryway, currently Greyfeld's local educational center, Greyfeld Boys' School. SCP-XXXX-1 will move itself directly outside any window left open into the school dormitory and produce a soft whistling noise. Should an individual notice the entity and start to follow it, or should midnight approach, SCP-XXXX-1 will then retreat back to SCP-XXXX to enter and relock the hatch.

SCP-XXXX exhibits a secondary anomalous effect, currently poorly understood by the Foundation but apocryphally explained by local Mekhanite legend1. If an individual chooses to follow SCP-XXXX-1 into the forest and back to SCP-XXXX, at some point during the journey, said individual will disappear. After an indeterminate amount of time after this occurrence, a genetic match to the individual's desiccated intestines will spontaneously manifest within the center of SCP-XXXX.

This latter phenomenon has also been observed to activate independently of any prior individual following SCP-XXXX-1 to SCP-XXXX. As such, whether further iterations of SCP-XXXX connected to "Adytum's Wake" exist is currently being considered.

Addendum XXXX-01 | Discovery & History: SCP-XXXX was discovered alongside the town of Greyfeld, QC in August of 1912 as part of a Foundation program to locate and establish relations with Mekhanite communities in southeastern Canada. At time of recovery, SCP-XXXX was condemned by local officials, and codified in local legend as a sanctuary for the spirits of Neo-Sarkic temptresses who had previously lived in the land Greyfeld presently occupies. As such, much of the population of Greyfeld displayed, and still displays, an aversion to approaching SCP-XXXX. However, due to the insularity of the community, along with unwillingness to converse with Foundation operatives on the matter, further information about SCP-XXXX's history is mostly unknown.
