Item #: SCP-1438
Object Class: Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-1438 is to be kept in an airtight humanoid containment suite on Site-17, modified as per immobile humanoid containment standard CSG-0455-HI, that is to be kept at an internal temperature above 35 degrees Celsius unless required otherwise. The air filtration system, and the decontamination to be equipped with a heat exchanger cooling the exiting air to a temperature below 10 degrees Celsius; the condensate is to be gathered and stored in airtight stainless steel vessels.
Due to self-harm potential, SCP-1438 is to be kept sedated, and physically restrained unless otherwise required. Any personnel interacting with SCP-1438 , either to perform maintenance or as a part of an experimental procedure is to wear Class A Hazardous Materials protection due to the volatility of SCP-1438-1.
Description: SCP-1438 is a caucasian male of unknown identity, apparently in his late teens. SCP-1438 measures 1.72m, and weighs 55kg, showing signs characteristic of long-term bed-bound. If not sedated, the body of SCP-1438 undergoes constant muscular spasms,seemingly uncontrolled movement and random vocalization.
The sweat of SCP-1438 contains an anomalous transparent, slightly yellow substance, designated SCP-1438-1. SCP-1438-1 has a boiling point of approximately 32 degrees Celsius at standard pressure, and appears well soluble in water.
In most chordates, SCP-1438-1 vapour exposure results alterations in neuron structure such as SCP-1438-1 deposition in myelin sheaths, [DATA EXPUNGED] which result in heightened speed of signal transmission, as well as shortened refractory period. This effect appears to scale exponentially with dosage, up to a transmission speed calculated at 0.12c corresponding to an SCP-1438-1 dosage of 90 grams. (see Addendum 1438-1).
Item #: SCP-1213
Object Class: Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: All known instances of SCP-1213 are to be contained in an 3m by 3m cell located in Site-██ and monitored by camera at all times. All but 1 offspring of any given SCP-1213 instance are to be killed and dissected immediately. The containment cell is to be provided with 5 D-Class personnel as a food source, rotated every day to prevent permanent mental damage.
Description: SCP-1213 is a rare species of humanoid creature that, through currently unknown methods, appears to gain sustinence through supressing REM sleep. The Foundation currently has 5 instances of SCP-1213, and any new instances discovered in the wild are to be tracked down and destroyed immediately.
Instances of SCP-1213 range from around 4-10 centimeters tall and have a primarily red coloration. SCP-1213 is asexual and reproduces by creating 2-4 sacs on various locations on their body which erupt 2-3 weeks later, killing the parent and releasing the offspring from the sacs.
Autopsies have shown that SCP-1213 has a simple physiology, only possessing a brain and an unknown organ in the head, assumed to be its digestive system. The rest of its body is comprised of various muscles and the skeletal system, granting SCP-1213 surprising agility for its small size. SCP-1213 also has the innate property of becoming invisible to the viewer when they are being looked directly at. Shifting one's sight sideways causes SCP-1213 to become visible again to the viewer. SCP-1213 is aware of this effect and uses it to hide for survival, as they are fragile and easily injured.
Because of its unique form of feeding, several detrimental effects have been observed from people who have been fed on by an instance of SCP-1213. The supression of REM sleep causes the host's brain to suffer the effects of sleep deprivation even if they sleep for the recommended amount of time. SCP-1213 is apparently intelligent enough to "ration" its host, only staying on one host for 5 days to a week, to prevent death. SCP-1213 cannot go even a single day without food, as doing so causes them to atrophy and die within a short amount of time.
Due to their tendancy to sleep alone, SCP-1213's preferred targets are children/teengers in the 8-15 year old range. If no easy hosts are available, they will continue to search the nearby area for anyone who sleeps alone, only using someone that sleeps with someone else as an absolute last resort.
