Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX remains under intermittent observation by lunar satellites and on-site surveillance equipment. Due to the difficulties in reaching and establishing a presence at its location, SCP-XXXX is not currently classified as "contained". Containment activities are to be focused on suppressing information about SCP-XXXX, editing transmissions from active lunar missions to eliminate evidence of its presence, and monitoring earthbound installations and groups capable of observing it directly.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a living tree of unknown species and order located on Earth's moon, at the approximate center of the geographical feature known as Reiner Gamma. It is larger than any extant terrestrial tree species, and displays a number of unexplained properties in addition to its unusual location. It is 94 meters in height, with a canopy approximately 230 meters in diameter.

SCP-XXXX was first observed by the Clementine space probe mission in 1994, during a partial mapping mission of the lunar surface.

Item #: SCP-XXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXX is held in Sector-10 on the island of █████████ in the South Pacific. Staff for the site is to be composed to either all male or all female at all times, and no heterosexual intercourse is permitted within a 400 km quarantine radius. Maritime routes have been adjusted to avoid this area and satellite surveillance is used to monitor and interdict civilian traffic through the region. Pregnancies initiated within the quarantine zone must be terminated at the earliest possible opportunity.

Description: SCP-XXX is a 2.4 m tall basalt icon carved in the likeness of a stylized human form. Dating techniques have failed to produce a credible age, and geological and archaeological examinations have not identified its origin. Organisms that reproduce within approximately 400 km of the artifact do so at an intensified pace, producing more and offspring at more frequent intervals than do typical members of their species.

This effect is most pronounced in what are considered “higher” classes of organisms. Plants show heightened flowering and fruit production at 30 to 70% above normal. Arthropods respond similarly. Avian and mammalian organisms produce an average of twice as many young per gestation, and are capable of reproduction year-round even when their normal cycle is seasonally determined.

The most dramatic effect is seen on human beings. Women who engage in sexual intercourse without prophylactics conceive 100% of the time, even if prior trauma or pre-existing conditions would normally render them sterile. Multiple births are vastly more likely, with an almost 90% occurrence and an average of 2.8 children born per pregnancy. These pregnancies are also notable for the high proportion that proceeds without complication, despite the prevalence of multiple births.

SCP-XXX does not display any anomalous physical properties. The mechanism by which it exerts it effects is unknown.

Addendum XXX: Procurement by the Foundation
SCP-XXX arrived at the ████████ Museum of History

A proposal to relocate SCP-XXX to a sub-arctic containment facility is under review.

Note to incoming personnel: The effects of SCP-XXX are present in all organisms, including the smallest. Fungal and bacterial infections have a tendency to spiral out of control in the quarantine zone, and respond poorly to antibiotics and other standard treatments. Prior infections should be dealt with before reporting to Sector-10, and medical evacuation is the recommended course for any serious illness. Fortunately viral infections don't seem to respond to SCP-XXX. -Dr. Schaffer


Item #: SCP-XXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXX is housed in a fortified enclosure at Sector-04. Twice per day it is to be provided 1.5 kg of raw pork shoulder. While in the enclosure, staff should remain 1 meter from SCP-XXX at all times. If the entity becomes agitated, personnel must retreat until the mood passes and SCP-XXX becomes cooperative once again.

Description: SCP-XXX is a .6 kg white stuffed animal, 39 cm tall and with a pink ribbon tied around its neck. A tag on its posterior reads ██████████████████████████████ as well as providing washing instructions. The stuffed toy is mobile and capable of verbal communication in ancient ████████ as well as French, Portuguese, and Farsi. It claims to be a malevolent manifestation of vice and slaughter, and frequently demands to be worshipped by the name of █████.

Physically SCP-XXX is of minimal threat. Because of the shortness of its limbs, it relies on an awkward waddling movement for locomotion. It is capable of exerting over 30 N/mm2 with its bite and enjoys ambushing unwary personnel, but adequate attention to safety precautions should deprive it of any chance to attack. X-rays and samples of the entity’s body indicate that it is stuffed with processed white cotton, and lacks a discernable internal anatomy.

SCP-XXX believes itself to be extremely threatening and powerful. It refers to itself in grandiloquent terms and claims a number of dangerous abilities, few of which have been observed by researchers. It has variously asserted that speaking its name aloud empowers it, summons it, or drives those who hear the word mad. It has also professed to be capable of mind control, clairsentience, the ability to predict and cause natural disasters, and the power to absorb the souls of those whose flesh it consumes. Testing suggests that it is incapable of any of these feats.

Initially SCP-XXX demanded to be fed only the flesh of “innocent” humans. Researchers instead supplied it with raw pork claiming that it was the remains of a human child. SCP-XXX accepted this and no longer makes dietary demands. Ingested materials do not add to SCP-XXX’s weight, but it secretes an oily black organic discharge of equal mass a few hours after each meal.

To date SCP-XXX reports to be “well pleased” with its treatment, as it believes that it is receiving daily human sacrifices.
