SCP-XXXX (The Runaway)

LAST UPDATE 21/11/2093
22,100 DAYS SINCE MANIFESTATION OF THE BOUNDARY
COMPOSED VIA ORDER OF THE O6 COUNCIL


Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Due to the risk it presents to Foundation operations and the secrecy of the O6 Council, SCP-XXXX is to be terminated as soon as possible. Mobile Task Force Alpha-01 ("Red Right Hand") is to be dispatched to respond to any sightings of SCP-XXXX, and maximum use of force is authorized.

SCP-XXXX is currently believed to be located in UberCity-094 ("Trinovantum"). For this purpose, access to the city's security and surveillance systems have been granted to the Foundation via permission from O6-5. Any potential witnesses of SCP-XXXX are to be brought into custody, interrogated, and terminated, released or repurposed as is appropriate for their level of exposure.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a bio-mechanical organism created and released by members of the US Government prior to its dissolution by the O6 Council in 2042. It is believed that the primary motivation behind SCP-XXXX's creation was to use it as an agent to smuggle information regarding the O6 Council out of the country, presumably so that allies of its creators could then use said information to continue hostilities against the Foundation and its allies. The extent of the information contained within SCP-XXXX's internal systems is unknown, but it is believed to at the very least contain the names and personal histories of the members of the O6 Council.

Physically, SCP-XXXX's appearance is variable — it is believed that, in order to keep it from being captured as long as possible, it's biological components were grown using leaked Foundation samples of adaptive tissue. As such, SCP-XXXX will shift appearance so as to assume whatever form would best be able to evade capture or termination in its current circumstances. Consistent physical attributes, however, include:

  • A dark red colouration of skin.
  • Short tufts of white fur protruding from whatever joints SCP-XXXX currently has.
  • A metallic cube located on SCP-XXXX's body, usually serving as its head when applicable.

Analysis of locations of SCP-XXXX encounters suggests that it primarily subsists through the consumption of waste and vermin. When confronted, SCP-XXXX will very rarely attempt to inflict harm upon pursuers, instead preferring to flee through the development of adaptations suited for increased speed and agility. To date, only two deaths of Foundation personnel have been attributed to SCP-XXXX, and no civilian deaths.

To date, nine sightings of SCP-XXXX have been confirmed.


Addendum XXXX-1: (Witness Interrogation):

On 12/04/2091, a confirmed sighting of SCP-XXXX occurred in the basement of an apartment building on Level-292, District-4 of UberCity-121 ("Eblana"). SCP-XXXX is believed to have resided in the basement for an extended period of time, feeding off waste and refuse from the occupants of the building, along with food left for it by a local resident, Jason Miller. After SCP-XXXX escaped from the subsequent termination attempt, Mr. Miller was brought into custody for interrogation.

Interrogation was conducted via use of a HAS-derived confessional unit. Interrogating automaton directed was directed by Agent Hooper.

<Begin Log>

(Mr. Miller is led into the room and left there. Lights illuminate the interrogator animatronic embedded in the wall, with additional lights activating in its eye sockets. Injection of memetic agents into speech begins at 5% in accordance with revised international laws on enhanced interrogation.)

Interrogator: Jason Samuel Miller. 46. Divorced. Two children. Blood type A-positive. Voted for representatives of the Voluntary Human Extinction Party in the last two general elections. You have offended.

(Mr. Miller looks around.)

Mr. Miller: Look, this is — I don't — I don't know what this is about, but I have rights. You can't just treat people like this.

Interrogator: No.

(Pause.)

Mr. Miller: No?

Interrogator: You encountered the entity in the basement of your apartment building and began feeding it. Divulge all information.

Mr. Miller: Look, I'm being serious now, I have no idea what you're talking about —

(Interrogator screeches at 92 decibels for seven seconds. Mr. Miller screams, puts his hands to his ears, and retreats into the corner of the booth.)

Mr. Miller: Jesus! Jesus!

(Interrogator ceases screeching. Memetic agent injection increased to 12%.)

Interrogator: Imagine you are on a beach. Have you ever seen a beach?

Mr. Miller: (quietly) What? I — yeah, I've seen movies, but…

Interrogator: You walk towards the ebbing tides. You can feel the tides shifting against your feet. The flesh of your feet and toes is sloughing in accordance with the tides until you are like a tree planted into the sand by your ankles. Do you bend forwards?

Mr. Miller: Um…

(Memetic agent injection increased to 25%.)

Interrogator: You bend forwards. You plant your face into the ocean. You are like a tree distributing your roots. There is a face to your face in the ocean underneath side. Face-look recognition nine? Do you? (shouting) Do you?!

(Mr. Miller whimpers and nods. Memetic agent injection increased to 47%.)

Interrogator: Recite.

Mr. Miller: (slowly) Jason Miller goes down to the basement each day. He does this because the cleaner was laid off and the garbage assimilates. A-As simulates. A simple late.

(Memetic agent injection increased to 62%.)

Interrogator: Recite.

Mr. Miller: (slowly) The garbage accumulates, so Jason Miller cleans to relieve the stink. There was a creature down there. It was shot. It was pitiful. Jason Miller left it food.

Interrogator: Did it communicate any information to Jason Miller?

Mr. Miller: It had no mouth.

(Memetic agent injection increased to 87%.)

Interrogator: Recite.

Mr. Miller: I-It had finger — a finger. Writes. Word, letter, number, number. Oh six. Oh six.

Interrogator: And names?

Mr. Miller: And names.

(Memetic agent injection increased to 100%.)

Interrogator: Jason Miller does not exist.

(Mr. Miller collapses to the floor and begins spasming for several seconds before entering a catatonic state. Agents enter the room and retrieve him for repurposing.)

Mr. Miller: I … I … I … I … I … I … I … I …

<End Log>

Closing Notes: With this testimony, it has been confirmed that SCP-XXXX is both capable of and willing to share the information contained within it with civilians. In order to maintain both the secrecy of the O6 Council and the stability of the current format of society, more drastic measures will have to be taken with all potential SCP-XXXX witnesses in the future.


Addendum XXXX-2 (Communication from O6-3)

O6-1,

Was sad to hear your Foundation was still having trouble tracking down XXXX — but not to worry, I bring good news! : - )

O6-2 has finally managed to capture Director West from his little hiding spot on the Pacific Trash Vortex. Needless to say, he's a little more ripe than he was during his CIA days, but his memory's as good as ever — I should know, I'm holding those parts of his brain in a little jar right now.

We've got a good read of the information that was implanted in XXXX now, so at least you know what you're dealing with exactly! I've sent over a copy of the relevant information with this message, so feel free to look through it.

Hope it helps you out! xx

O6-3
