Item #: SCP-xxxx Object class: Euclid Special Containment Procedures:
SCP-xxxx is currently residing within a standard 1m x 1.5m observation window overlooking a 2.5m x 2.5m x 2.5m containment cell holding a mirror for additional SCP-xxxx containment. Regular tests are required to confirm continued SCP-xxxx presence. Should activity of SCP-xxxx cease personnel are advised to avoid windows or mirrors, any symptoms of SCP-xxxx exposure should be noted and reported.Subject appears to be unable to move beyond 15m before anchoring to a new source, and remains within the new source for approximately 5 days. Once the location of SCP-xxxx has been discovered it should be brought to the containment cell and the previous source incinerated. All holding cells for SCP-xxxx must contain both a windowed observation booth and a standard mirror, rooms are to be kept darkened for testing purposes.
SCP-xxxx was found following multiple reports of "strokes" in the hotel ████████ ██ all occurring in the bathroom of room ███, all victims were found facing the mirror. Due to proper lighting acquisition was uneventful.
SCP-xxxx appears to be an entity of unknown composition that will occupy windows or mirrors. Rarely the subject will choose to "pursue" a victim that has managed to escape its original "attack" and can be captured in photographs of the chosen individual. SCP-xxxx requires either a window looking out onto a darkened area or a mirror in a dark room with a light no brighter than approximately twenty(20) lumens, and an isolated victim in order to manifest.
Note:"mirrors" denotes standard plane mirrors and not simply reflective surfaces.
Upon looking through a window inhabited by SCP-xxxx the victim will express increased interest in objects viewed through the window, even when tests have verified that there are no objects within the area. Approximately forty-five(45) seconds into looking through the window the subject will report the sound of footsteps appropriate to the material outside the window, and disturbances in light and reflections. After an indeterminate amount of time one such disturbance will direct the victim's attention to a face that is undetectable to outside observers, descriptions of the face vary and it is suspected that the face changes to cause the most psychological discomfort to the victim. Upon being sighted by the victim the face appears to accelerate towards the victim's face, immediately causing the death of the victim. Tests have determined cause of death to be [REDACTED] this suggests th[REDACTED]. Victims have been known to escape these attacks and some are subsequently "stalked" subject's methods for choosing these "prey" are currently being tested.
In mirrors the effects are rapidly accelerated, approximately ten (10) seconds after looking into a mirror inhabited by SCP-xxxx subject's face is reported to appear over the face that would normally be reflected and attack the victim.
