Item #: SCP-XXXX
Object Class: Safe
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a secure standard issue safe in Dr. ███████'s office. Only personnel with Level 2 clearance and higher can be given permission to utilize SCP-XXXX.
SCP-XXXX-1 is given free roam of the facility having been proven stable by multiple psychological tests. This would obviously bar anything that would breach security or safety protocols. Once every two months SCP-XXXX-1 is to be injected with ██████ level preservatives and fresh wrappings in accordance with schedule XXXX-G33.
Description: SCP-XXXX is a round wooden mask 50.8 cm (20 in) around and weighing approximately 0.5 kg (1 lb). It is constructed from the bark of Betula glandulosa and depicts an owl of the species ██████ ████████. It was most likely created by the Northwestern ██████████ tribe of the state of Montana. SCP-XXXX exhibits properties of preservation, and even resurrection in rare cases, of deceased multicellular organisms ranging from the simple (plant) to the complex (animal). A disadvantage of the mask though seems to be that it can only affect matter surrounded by or touching the mask (see Test Log XXXX-1).
SCP-XXXX-1 is the animate corpse of a Caucasian male of indeterminable age, approximately 1.8 m (6 ft) in height, bald, with angular features. Excluding subject's face, SCP-XXXX-1 is in a state of extreme decomposition. Since containment, SCP-XXXX-1 has been administered ██████ level preservatives bi-monthly to stave off further decomposition. According to subject's testimony (see Interview XXXX-1), its name is Harry "Deadman" Morgan, a somewhat notorious gunman from the Montana/Dakotas region during the late 1800's. No records exist of there ever being a gunman named Harry Morgan though there are records of an agent of the Pinkerton National Detective Agency named Harold Morgan disappearing in that region sometime around ██/██/██. Despite the absence of any ligaments in its joints and missing patches of skin in many critical areas, subject can move freely without assistance and though missing considerable amounts of the spinal cord, subject can exhibit complex brain functions.
