To Blind the Stars with Beauty

Item #: SCP-xx

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: There is currently no feasible method of containing SCP-xx. Its trajectory is to be monitored and personnel are to direct it away from major population centres via placation. Forceful restraint is not to be attempted due to the risk of retaliation and a VK-Class 'Lifted Veil' Scenario.

Description: SCP-xx is a Class-VII reality bender appearing as an androgynous humanoid approximately 1.6 meters in height. The entity possesses numerous physically implausible features including:

  • A body composed of unconnected shards of volcanic glass, gradating between black and translucent green.
  • In place of hands and feet, its limbs taper into sharp ends- the entity floats above ground rather than relying on corporeal support.
  • ~150 opal cabochons embedded in various locations on its form. These range vastly in size (5 mm- 20 cm in diameter) and appear to function as sensory organs. The method for the entity's vocalisation is unknown.
  • 3 m long flexible metal strips resembling hair emerging from its head and nape, constantly in fluid motion around its body and seemingly unaffected by gravity.
  • {White circular patterns manifesting beneath its feet that emit intermittent light according to its steps.}

SCP-xx travels the world in no discernible pattern other than avoiding major population centres and hazardous infrastructure such as nuclear stations. It then employs its ontokinetic properties to augment its surrounding environment into forms that it deems aesthetically pleasing. The motive behind this action is unknown (See Addendum 3). However, the entity has expressed no desire to endanger human life.

Addendum 2: Interview log

{SCP-xx speaks in a very dreamy and disconnected way, as if it functions separately from the logic of our world. Its ultimate goal (as one of the Pale Artist's creations who have achieved Anamnesis) is to show the Red Artist the many different types of beauty on Earth, thus deterring it from destroying Earth to make its corrupted art. However, it is extremely idealistic and does not realise just how unreasonable this idea is.}
