Item #: SCP-XXXX
Special Containment Procedures: Instances of SCP-XXXX are to be individually contained within a locked enclosure no smaller than 1 square meter. Enclosures should be constructed primarily of glass, and housed within a ordinary concrete humanoid-class SCP cell(this is to prevent instances of SCP-XXXX-2 from escaping). SCP-XXXX can subsist on almost any form of animal matter, and should be fed 200mm of any kind by a D-Class personnel twice daily. Additionally, enclosures should be cleaned once a week of waste matter for sanitation purposes, again by D-Class personnel.
Instances of SCP-XXXX-2 should be confined to the cell until SCP-XXXX can be extracted from them, upon which previous instances of SCP-XXXX-2 are to be taken to a medical wing, then placed back to their previous duties.
Addendum:Following Incident-XXXX, it is advisable to use the Telekill alloy when handling instances of SCP-XXXX. Additionally, if instances appear to become particularly hostile or uncooperative, their enclosures may be temporarily covered in Telekill alloy for a period of at least ten minutes.
Description: Instances of SCP-XXXX are small, vaguely worm-like creatures approximately five(5) to eight(8) centimeters in length which possess teeth designed for ripping and cutting into flesh. Beyond initial similarities, instances do not appear related to any animal on earth classified as a 'worm'. Instances are sentient and very intelligent, though without a host incapable of communicating with anything other than one another.
When nearby a living animal(preferably human, though they will settle for anything big enough), SCP-XXXX will attempt to slither towards this creature. If able to reach its 'prey', SCP-XXXX will bite harshly onto them and eat its way through their body until it reaches their brainstem. Once it has reached the brainstem, SCP-XXXX will bite onto it and several tendrils from within its body will pierce into it, completely non-lethally. Through a unknown process, SCP-XXXX uses these tendrils to 'hack' the brain stem of its target, taking control of their body and receiving all sensory input. The 'hole' created when SCP-XXXX burrows into its host is not life-threatening, and will surprising heal completely in █ hours. Individuals that this has happened to are to be temporarily reclassified as SCP-XXXX-2, and contained accordingly. It is of note that while SCP-XXXX is in control of their body and receives sensory data, it still shares this sensory input with its host, of whom is conscious the entire time. The reason for this is unknown.
Instances of SCP-XXXX-2 are able to communicate to others in the language previously known by their host and adeptly control their body. Instances of SCP-XXXX-2 have no actual memories of their host's experiences prior to becoming SCP-XXXX-2, however general knowledge appears to be gained(eg., a instance of SCP-XXXX-2 that was previously a foundation researcher would know the difference between a Euclid or Keter SCP, but not any experiences that researcher would've had with any Euclid or Keter SCPs). Interestingly, instances of SCP-XXXX do not retain this knowledge upon exiting willfully or being forced out of their current host; it is thought that some of the tendrils used to 'hack' the brainstem also go further into the brain itself and access it for general knowledge, but does not actually store this information within its own brain. However, any knowledge one instance of SCP-XXXX-2 has, all separate instances have for as long as that instance is active. Most often, instances of SCP-XXXX-2 are non-hostile, and appear to prefer trickery to outright confrontation. Most often, instances refuse to divulge information regarding their nature, though oftentimes they are not as clever as they believe themselves to be, and can be prone to slipping up.
Incident Log XXXX
Personnel involved: Dr. █████
Location: SCP-XXXX Containment Cell
Description: During Incident XXXX, a researcher(Dr. █████) was attempting to take a instance of SCP-XXXX out of its enclosure for testing purposes. SCP-XXXX reacted as expected, and attempted to turn Dr. █████ into a instance of SCP-XXXX-2. On this day, however, Dr. █████ had a experiment involving Telekill immediately after his experiments with this instance of SCP-XXXX, and was carrying a block of it on his person. During the ensuing panic as the instance attacked him, the block fell into the containment enclosure, which most of the instance of SCP-XXXX was still within. Once this occurred, the instance immediately began violently convulsing, before falling into a catatonic-like state. Instance remained in this state for ██ minutes after removal of Telekill block, before returning to a conscious state. Since then, all instances of SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-2 appear to react with fear whenever Telekill is brought near them, and will attempt to move as far away from the alloy as possible.
Interview Log XXXX:
Interviewed: Instance of SCP-XXXX-2
Interviewer: Dr. R█████
Foreword: SCP-XXXX was allowed to turn D-3291 into a instance of SCP-XXXX-2 for the purposes of communication to learn more about the nature of SCP-XXXX.
Dr. R█████: So, SCP-XXXX, lets cut to the chase. The Foundation wants to know more about you lot. Tell me about yourself.
SCP-XXXX-2: We don't wish to talk about me.
Dr. R█████: "We"? Who else are you talking about? You're the only one in the room with me.
SCP-XXXX-2: The others, of course.
Dr. R█████: Others…? What others are you talking about? Do you mean the other XXXXs?
SCP-XXXX-2: Yes, I do believe that is the designation you've all given us.
Dr. R█████: But…How have you been in contact with one another?
SCP-XXXX-2: We…Do not understand your question.
Dr. R█████: Well…You must have noticed that we've been keeping you all separated. Different enclosures and everything.
SCP-XXXX-2: We are always in contact.
Dr. R█████: But…How? You aren't anywhere near each other-
SCP-XXXX-2: You all need to be? Hmm, strange creatures.
Dr. R█████: Er…Right…Uhm, well. I suppose that tells us a little bit, about you all.
SCP-XXXX-2: It does? Hmmm, the others wont like that very much…
Dr. R█████: Well, they're in containment anyways. Not like your little club'll amount to much like this…
SCP-XXXX-2: Oh, not those us.
[Dr. R█████ is seen to be a bit perplexed for a moment, before he realizes what SCP-XXXX-2 just said]
Dr. R█████: [EXPLICATIVE REDACTED], what!? There's more of you out there!?
[At these words, SCP-XXXX-2 looks quite distressed, and seems unsure of how to proceed]
SCP-XXXX-2: …Er…No? No! Of…Of course not! All…Of us XXXXs are contained completely, what would give you that idea?
Closing Statement: Given the information gained at the end of the interview log, and considering that it might constitute a heavy security breach, requesting permission to upgrade SCP-XXXX's classification from Euclid to Keter.
Request accepted. And get someone on finding the rest of them before any more intel is leaked from the inside. -O5-█
