Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Spores of SCP-XXXX are to be kept in a small, plastic container in a standard storage locker at site-66, with a relative humidity of no more than 20%. Fully grown instances of SCP-XXXX have been determined safe for physical contact with skin, though gloves are extremely encouraged.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the designation given to an unknown species of fungi of the genus, [PLACEHOLDER]. SCP-XXXX instances grow to be [PLACEHOLDER] cm tall, with the cap between [PLACEHOLDER] cm thick and [PLACEHOLDER] cm wide. The stem is between [PLACEHOLDER] cm thick and [PLACEHOLDER] cm tall.

SCP-XXXX instances only grow in moist environments1, the spore only germinates on necrotic tissue of a human being (hereby referred to as the host). Once these requirements are met2, the instance will grow a fruiting body at a rate of [PLACEHOLDER] cm per day, on average.

Once the SCP-XXXX instance has spread through the dead tissue, it will begin to accumulate memories belonging to the host, even if the host is dead, and storing them in the mycelium. These memories are acquired through unknown means and are collected at random.

If a fruiting body is ingested by another human (hereby referred to as the consumer), they will then experience the collected memories. This is often incredibly troubling and disturbing to the consumer.

The consumer then suffers multiple symptoms: [PLACEHOLDER] and will also experience delusions about the memories experienced, causing the consumer to believe that they are the host that the fruiting body grew off of.

The delusions caused by SCP-XXXX will also cause the consumer to estimate and assume details about the host's life, and will firmly believe these assumptions to be true, even if provided concrete evidence to the contrary.

The consumer will then attempt to adopt the life of the host, as they believe it has been through their assumptions.
