SCP-XXXX-1 as viewed on Captain McConnor's camera.

Special Containment Procedures:

Due to the erratic activity and overwhelming quantity of SCP-XXXX, no method of containment is plausible. The movement patterns of SCP-XXXX are to be monitored via satellite surveillance. Human settlements are to be secured and relocated if they are within the predicted flight path of SCP-XXXX. Additionally, no known obstruction can disrupt their flight patterns.

High alert is necessary in the event of a SCP-XXXX-1. Assigned MTF personnel are to be given direct order to quickly subdue SCP-XXXX-1 in the least possible time. Casualties are known to increase the lethality of SCP-XXXX-1 over time; therefore, it is an imperative order from O5 to prevent any civilian and personnel death. Solution Unorthodox is to be initiated only when all manpower confrontation with SCP-XXXX-1 has failed.

All efforts are directed to fully understanding SCP-XXXX, analyzing their vulnerabilities, and neutralizing them from existence.


SCP-XXXX is the designation given to anomalous species resembling the tsetse fly (Glossina morsitans). Despite similarities in appearance, instances of SCP-XXXX are agender, do not reproduce, and do not need to feed. Their short lifespans are compensated by their rapid cloning; deceased instances are simply replicated by new ones split apart from any instance. There can be a number of swarms spread across the Sahara Desert, their bodies perfectly camouflaged with sand particles. They utilize frequent sandstorms as transport systems to populated cities, maximizing their chances of finding hosts. Their exact numbers are unknown.

During swarming, instances of SCP-XXXX can merge collectively into a single SCP-XXXX. Where the merged instances disappear is under further investigation. However, based from preliminary observation, the point of their convergence is hypothesized to be a boundless space existing within each SCP-XXXX, located inside the thorax.

SCP-XXXX are actively in a frenzied state, seeking for hosts ahead of their flight paths. Once a suitable host has been located, a swarm of SCP-XXXX will encrust the host and override its nervous system, transforming it into an SCP-XXXX-1. Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 exhibit predatory and hostile behavior, and will attempt to terminate both human life and other SCP-XXXX-1 instances on sight. This act can be attributed to an extreme form of natural selection. Whether it is by instinct or obeying a set of conditions, it has been observed that all of its preferred candidates are male, between the age of 20 to 40.

SCP-XXXX-1 instances are protected by an exoskeletal armor, formed by the constant movement of the swarm. The exoskeleton can morph into lethal protrusions that are used to inflict damage. The evolution of SCP-XXXX-1 is inorganic; it evolves anomalously by terminating human life, or other instances of SCP-XXXX-1. This phenomenon can only be described as supernatural. Each casualty it achieves is sufficient to force its body to undergo exponential exoskeletal augmentations. The limits of its evolutionary growth have not been established. SCP-XXXX-1 only ceases evolution when it is terminated

SCP-XXXX-1 instances display gladiatorial behavior aggressively. When confronted one-on-one, it signals its opponent to duel it, offering its dueler a weapon to use. If neutralized, the swarm of SCP-XXXX possessing the body will retreat. SCP-XXXX-1 commences this act by uttering the words, accurately heard as: "zeel zeel, bebub bebub".

Addendum SCP-XXXX-01: Discovery Log:

Radio transmissions between Moroccan Border Patrol troops reported black figures approaching Erfoud. They were marked as a possible threat, and neutralized the unidentified figures. Minutes later, the troops witnessed the downed targets dissipate into what they describe as "a cloud of tsetse flies", before disappearing from their sight, leaving behind bodies of deceased males.

Twenty-seven days later, locals reported sightings of a black humanoid walking towards Agadez. The figure moved at a maladroit pace, dragging a huge, "blade-like" protrusion from its right arm. Patrol troops confirmed the reports, and answered by sending a small squad to tackle the possible threat.

Attempts to communicate with it failed, with the humanoid responding by aiming its ensiform protrusion towards them. Before it could act, the armed troops fired their weapons at it. As the troops reloaded their firearms, the humanoid launched its protrusion as a projectile, and managed to severely disembody two of the soldiers and decapitate one. It then retrieved its protrusion remotely, automatically reattaching to its right arm.

The threat was finally neutralized with several M67 grenades. Explosives pierced through its tough exoskeleton and immobilized its activity. As the downed threat remained motionless, the black exoskeleton separated from it, and similar to the previous incident, it morphed into a swarm of tsetse flies. This swarm retreated from the vicinity, leaving behind another body of a deceased male.

Following the incidents, the Foundation arrived to handle the cases, amnesticate all possible witnesses, and set up a base near the recent incident.

Addendum SCP-XXXX-02: Confrontation Log:

The Foundation traced an instance of SCP-XXXX through their satellite CoSm-0. They were discovered traversing near a nomadic settlement. MTF Phi-6 ("Smokeless Fire") were deployed to relocate the settlers away from the path of SCP-XXXX. All were safely evacuated except for a male child inside a tent. SCP-XXXX already arrived, and hovered above the tent. As the child attempted to escape, SCP-XXXX expanded into a swarm and enveloped the child. A video log of the confrontation is provided:

(The Big F (Foundation) starts investigatin, they start amnesticatin', redact all the data that's remainin')
All according to keikaku, keikaku means plan, and I have no plans
