SCP-2017 "Possessive Statue" Edit
Item #: SCP-2017
Object Class: Keter
Special Containment Procedures Edit
There is to be no interview or any form of interaction with the object at any time. The object must be contained in an airtight, 10x10x10 meter steel container, suspended in the air via steel cables. Its' containment cell must be held over a 10 meter chasm, (to impede the object in the event of a breach) and steel-framed bridges encircling the cell; this is to allow maintenance personnel to repair any damages caused by the object.
The bridge must be monitored for any possible damage after maintenance to avoid delay for the next checkup. This containment cell must be built 32 meters below the surface, and should have RPE's installed to the floors leading to the lift; this is designed to slow down the object.
The containment cell must be constantly monitored to inspect any damages or cracks outside the steel layers. The P.E.S (Pulse emission system) must always be running, and to be faced directly at the containment cell in order to prevent the object causing psychological attacks, therefore, staff must exercise extreme caution nearing its' cell; as the minimum safe distance from the cell is 3 meters. Daily checkup on the E.M.S is required for the protection of personnel studying the object, and the maximum time of studying the object is 20 minutes.
SCP-2017-1 appears to be a lead statue, similar to the Michelango's David in terms of design. The object dates back to the 13th century, it has been theorized the statue was in ███,Greece. The statue however, was found in a deceased owner's home in ██████,████ after reports of hikers disappearing near the property. The statue appears to be malformed around the facial area, and red streaks appear across its body.
SCP-2017-2 is the object that inhibits the statue, for reasons unknown. It is an almost invisible entity that attacks via "possession" or psychological attacks. Most experiments have been unsuccessful and the object continues to show increasing aggression to staff and other objects. SCP-2017-2 appears incapable of speech and most of its communication sound similar to animalistic grunts and growls. For unknown reasons, the object can be seen through materials such as plastic and glass, therefore, the containment team must be equipped with specialized riot helmets and tracking equipment to detect and contain the object.
Addendum-92-1: Due to the object's increasing rate in persuading personnel to release it from its' containment cell, it is advised for all research, maintenance and guarding personnel to wear specialized PS-1 ear muffs when inside its' containment cell.
Addendum-92-1: SCP-2017's activity has significantly decreased since Incident-████-██-██. The object has halted its' attempts at persuading personnel, but is still attempting to breach containment.
Experiment #2 04/15/██: SCP-2017-2 has been forced outside of SCP-2017-1 into Test Site-█. Two guards have been placed outside the testing area armed with PED's focused on SCP-2017-2 in the case of it attempting to breach. On-site Class-D personnel were instructed to wear riot gear helmets to identify the object, and were told to place several objects in the testing area.
- Item #1: A small cardboard box.
- Result: The object lifted the box into the air and crushed it.
- Item #2: Eastern Chipmunk.
- Result: The object observed the rodent for 20 seconds before it lifted the creature into the air, and [REDACTED].
- Item #3: Nokia E71 Black Steel.
- Result: As D-78105 tried to browse the phone, its signal has been scrambled, and the screen to the phone shut off after 50 seconds when in close proximity of SCP-2017-2.
NOTES: SCP-2017-2 seems to have a hostile reaction to organic life and can affect sensitive mechanical devices. I still don't get why it didn't attack the Class-D... ~Leonard
Experiment #6 11/06/██: SCP-2017-1 has been placed inside SCP-035's chamber to test for any reaction the statue may have towards the negative effects from SCP-035. For 7 minutes, there have not been any observable reactions, nor hostility between the two objects. After 2 minutes, there was a spontaneous form of magnetic energy that destroyed the containment glass in 035's chamber. This resulted in a containment breach, and the two objects were easily contained, no losses.
Leonard noted that the two may have been conversing, and the magnetic blast may have came from SCP-2017-2 when it was likely in a state of 'anger' with SCP-035. As a result of magnetic blast, both objects became inert and exhausted, which allowed the containment of both objects safer.
NOTES: This had to be some kind of memetic "battle" of some sort between the two, I seriously wished we had recording equipment up to record the vibrations. It could've given us a clearer idea of what exactly happened! In addition, the mental effect both 035 and 2017 usually have, completely disappeared when that blast occurred. How this happened.... I can't really explain it yet. ~Leonard
Delayed Experiments Edit
Experiment #5 12/04/██: SCP-2017-2 was to be forced outside of its containment cell into SCP-682's enclosure in an agitated state. Leonard hypothesized that since the object is a non-corporeal entity, and if irritated could potentially neutralize SCP-682. However, this experiment has since been on hold by O5 Command, as it could possibly lead to multiple Keter-Euclid level containment breaches.
Failed Experiments Edit
Experiment #1 02/11/██: SCP-2017-2 was forced outside of its cell to Test Site-█. The guards' PEDs shut off momentarily, and gave SCP-2017-2 the opportunity to breach containment. This led to the deaths of 13 guards, 4 research personnel, and injured 27 research personnel.
Experiment #3 06/01/██: SCP-2017-2 breached its containment box as it was being transferred to Test Site-█.The guards could not react in time and this led to another containment breach. The object killed 20 guards, 2 research personnel and injured 18 of the latter.
Experiment #4 10/18/██: Several guards were placed near the containment cell of SCP-2017-2, and one of the guards, under SCP-2017-2's influence, shut off the PES', and led to a containment breach. The object killed 2 guards, injured 1, and injured a few research personnel. Agent █████ was [DATA EXPUNGED] by SCP-2017-2, and in the camera feed, seemed to be completely immune to the PEDs.
Experiment #5 02/03/██: Leonard was testing advanced electromagnetic pulse emissions technology in an attempt to permanently incapacitate, or even destroy SCP-2017. As the containment unit was being lowered, and placed into a containment field, it immediately breached containment and released an EMP wave that destroyed surveillance and recording equipment, approximately within 30-40 meters. Containment breach soon followed after ██ minutes, and the object has been successfully re-contained. No casualties, except for paralyzed testing personnel and guards during the event.
NOTES: Despite of all that occurred from this incident, I am still well, and capable of continuing my research on this object. For now, I will not pursue anymore experiments with this object unless I know for certain that it won't fail, and endanger the staff. I also require a couple of painkillers please. ~Leonard
Audio transcripts received from SCP-2017's cell consist of an audible, frequent, and low-note vibration in the audio. Further investigations revealed that these vibrations may have likely come from SCP-2017-2, and the main researcher Leonard hypothesized that it is likely its' only form of speech. The vibrations seem to change frequency and pitch, it's probably a form of Morse code, noted main researcher Leonard. As of now, only a few vibrations have been decoded.
