GROUPS OF INTEREST-JP


File Overview: SCP objects have not been completely contained in any portion of the world. Clearly, the Foundation has to put a higher emphasis on dealing with those groups that have shown knowledge or possession of the anomalous, rather than with others that do not.
Personnel with additional information about these or other groups is to report them immediately, as to formulate an effective plan to deal with them.

Japan Organisms Improvement and Creation Laboratory (JOICL)

JOICL.png

Overview: Japan Organisms Improvement and Creation Laboratory (日本生類創研) has been mentioned in several cases involving anomalous creatures, including a wide range of life forms, such as animals, plants and objects which behave like creatures.

As almost all of the creatures manifest anomalous properties or additional functions which cannot be achieved in nature or explained with ordinary modern science, the Lab does not seem to be restricted by general ethics. It is thought to be a research facility or a group of researchers possessing some kind of technology, but its actual situation has not been grasped yet.

Initially it was thought that there was no direct distribution or sale of the anomalies that the Japan Organisms Improvement and Creation Laboratory created, but in rare cases the organization has been confirmed to sell their creations as commercial products such as SCP-483-JP or SCP-1919-JP. However, its organizational purpose remains unknown.

Tou-Hei Heavy Industries

TouHei.png

Overview: Tou-Hei Heavy Industries (東弊重工) is considered to be a group involved in manufacture of artifacts whose mechanism can not be explained by modern science. To date, many related materials have been collected by the Foundation, but the detailed organizational structure and purpose thereof have not yet been clarified. Many Foundation researchers speculate that Tou-Hei Heavy Industries' activities are mainly conducted in Japan.

Since this group's collected materials suggest that they actively provide anomalous technology to non-members of their own group, this group has to be dealt with as soon as possible.

Shūshū-In (Collecting Agency)

Shushu.png

Overview: Shūshū-In (蒐集院) was a Japanese organization that collected the anomalous items known as SCP objects to the Foundation. They had used non-scientific methods utilizing the augury, magic and religion, mainly Shintō1 and Shugendō2. Some of their procedures were valuable and have been taken over as Special Containment Procedures by the Foundation.

After the Foundation strengthened its influence in Japan, most of the members were absorbed by the Foundation and other GOIs, but radicals within Shūshū-In still retain collected objects, and have hidden them away in hopes of restoring the organisation.

Saiga Factions

saiga.png

Overview: Saiga Factions are organizations consisting of PoI called Rokumi Saiga (犀賀六巳) and his followers.

Rokumi Saiga refers to himself as a scientist majoring in space-time physics and is an unidentified person who seems to have conducted his activities in multiple parallel universes. The purpose of the activity is believed to be to save the target universes and human beings belonging to them.

Mr. Saiga seems to hide many abnormal items brought from various parallel universes, but searching for them has yielded scarce results. Mr. Saiga has probably gained knowledge about the Foundations and other groups related to abnormal objects in the process of going back and forth in the parallel universes and pays close attention to hiding himself from each organization.

Mr. Saiga has a certain number of human followers in several parallel universes. The followers are referred to as "Saiga Factions" and basically friendly to humanity. However, their "human beings" refer to human beings of all universes including the parallel universes, so often "Saiga Factions" activities seriously damage the present universes to which the Foundation belongs. Since "Saiga Factions" do not stick to the present universes, they will act without hesitation to save more mankind and universes even if they anticipate the damage to the present universes. For this reason, the Foundation has designated "Saiga Factions" as Groups of Interest.

"Doctor"

dr.png

Overview: "Doctor" is an individual or a group that imitates the activities of other Groups of Interest.

A lot of objects imitating Group of Interest, "Doctor Wondertainment" have been confirmed, and there are examples that imitate "The Factory" and "Japan Organisms Improvement and Creation Laboratory". Most of the objects created by "Doctor" cause harm to users. Although the reason for his activity is unknown, despite the consequences of his actions, it is suggested that he is motivated by the need to have fun.

Imperial Japanese Army Special Medical Force (a.k.a. "Unit Negative Numbers")

Overview: Imperial Japanese Army Special Medical Force (特別医療部隊) was an Imperial Japanese Army unit, which researched the occult and technology, founded in 1937 under the cooperation of the Army and Shūshū-In. As a common name, it was given the codename "Unit Negative Numbers (負号部隊)".

The unit was composed of three divisions, "Tsuchigumo", "Jofuku" and "Tatara", which conducted researches mainly on magic, life science, and mechanical engineering respectively. The purpose of the organization is to research and produce weapons by a combination of magic and science, including "Project Tokijiku" aiming to create immortal soldiers. Those weapons were not mass-produced, however, some were used in the actual war.

In 1945, the organization was dismantled and most of its technology was collected by the Foundation after the end of the World War II.

Salesperson Miyoko

Overview: Salesperson Miyoko3 is an individual or a group that sells and offers beauty-related products or services with anomalous characteristics. Most of the products sold have common points such as “for women" and "pink-colored package", but something not in the category of beauty and goods for men have also been confirmed. Most of the products have the effect of solving the users' troubles, but cause serious damage to them in terms of side effects.

Salesperson Miyoko's selling method covers a wide range including advertisement in department stores and door-to-door sales. Although the appearance at the time of sale is a suit clothing, there are several different reports on their physical characteristics. Records show that Salesperson Miyoko indicated belonging to an organization called "Iwanaga Beauty Association".

Drunkness Street

Overview: Drunkness Street (酩酊街), probably a big residential district, is a place located in parallel universe or extra-dimension. The Foundation have found and contained several anomalies thought to be from Drunkness Street. In addition, there are several bidirectionally passing transit dimension connected with our world and Drunkness Street discovered. These are all discovered in Kyoto Prefecture but not exclusively existing there.

While a part of groups of interest have been collecting knowledge about Drunkness Street, the Foundation holds little information regarding Drunkness Street. In most of the transit dimension reside sapient entities, according to which the existential concept is "Drunkenness, Oblivion, Stagnation". These keywords can be found spread in the data gained with investigation. Although residents in the transit dimension do not agree with the concept, they currently do not show the tendency to be proactively against it or to move to either Drunkness Street or our world.

So far, the Foundation and Drunkness Street are not in conflict with each other. It is even unknown whether Drunkness Street has perceived the Foundation in the first place. To prevent unpredictable event, the Foundation has established a hands-off system, basically prohibiting access toward Drunkness Street. However, several agents or D-class had invaded into Drunkness Street without permission or before the hands-off system was not well-established, and the cases which managed to come back were very few.

Japanese Anomalous Groups Peace and Amity Treaty Organization

PEJEOPAT.png

Overview: Japanese Anomalous Groups Peace and Amity Treaty Organization (JAGPATO) is a group of interest formed on a legal basis provided by the treaty with the same title made by the Foundation and the Global Occult Coalition with Japan Government. The Foundation, as one of the major organizations holding the membership, exert great influence on this group of interest.

Although it began as a supervisor to keep Japanese government institutions intensifying arbitrary operations in check, its current role seems to carry a growing range of responsibility. Nowadays, it mainly mediates between member groups when conflicts occur, peacefully deal with clashes between each organization. Sometimes it assists member groups to collaborate, having contributed to the formation of large-scale allied forces.

That said, it has been pointed out that it is possible for JAGPATO to be related to anomalies out of the Foundation's control or to leak information to the government. The Foundation will build a cooperative relationship as a member group while the investigation is ongoing.

Sekiryu Club

ukida

Overview: The Sekiryu Club4 (石榴倶楽部) is a secret society which is active in Kyoto5, having been confirmed to have existed since the mid-19th century. They have a taste for human flesh and call human flesh "Pomegranate" in connection with the tale of Kishimojin (鬼子母神)6.

There can be a maximum of 10 members in the Sekiryu Club at a time, each of the members succeeds to the name of Hashidume (橋詰), Shiina (椎名), Rokkaku (六角), Hayase (早瀬), Usuki (宇宿), Tojo (東条), Funakoshi (舟越), Akitsu (秋津), Teduka (手塚), and Ukita (浮田). If a vacancy occurs due to withdrawal, death, or expulsion, a new person will be invited, so the same name does not mean the same person.

They purpose to enjoy cannibalism and hold regular meetings. The organizational identity beyond interactions is not clear. Previously considered not to be a threat to the Foundation, however, recent researches suggest a relation to anomalies and active involvement with other GoIs, so more detailed information is required.

Dreaming Technology

Overview: The Dreaming Technology (夢見テクノロジー) is a group that produces and sells anomalous objects. Although the specific purpose and philosophy of the activity are currently unknown, they mainly commit to fulfilling someone's wishes and future dreams. Investigation so far has confirmed that they use unknown technologies and the anomalies generated by them to realize someone's "wishes/dreams".

However, in many instances, they modify or erase something important about the subject (e.g. memory, body, close person, etc.) as a "price" to fulfill their dreams. Due to it, there are cases that the subject has a different ending to the "wishes/dreams" originally desired. The Foundation is strongly vigilant for them because some of their anomalies cause big damage to the general society.

The Dreaming Technology is mainly advertised through local newspapers and Internet advertisements, some instances are reported that they do individual sales for people with strong "wishes/dreams". Active cooperation with other GoIs has been also confirmed, but the full details are unknown. In addition, investigations are currently underway on the grounds that there was a possibility that information about the inside of the Foundation may have been obtaining in some way due to anomalous items were also detected at a front company of the Foundation in the past.

Trismegistus Translation & Transportation‬

TTT.png

Overview: Trismegistus Translation & Transportation (a.k.a. Ttt or Ttt Co.) is comprised of intelligent anomalous existences and is an organization that takes the form of a company. Most of the existences that have been confirmed as a member to date call themselves names related to myths and folklores around the world. For example, the individual serving as company president self-proclaims "Hermes" who is a Greek mythology deity, and the individual serving as vice-president self-proclaims "Thoth" who is an Egyptian mythology deity.

The businesses that have been identified so far range from "translation", "tourism", "food and beverage", "communication service", "resort", and many others, and there are estimated to be many unconfirmed businesses. These businesses are expected to have anomalous existences similar to themselves as their main customers, and they have cultural backgrounds from various regions and times. As a result, the languages used in their businesses have been identified as extinct ancient languages, rare minority languages, and liturgical languages, which are recognized as valuable linguistic research material.

This organization has a neutral or friendly attitude towards the Foundation and the human community, and to date, there have been no confirmed possession or use of anomalies produced with clear hostility. On the other hand, there is a high likelihood that their anomalous businesses will be exposed to the public, and for the normalcy preservation, the Foundation considers this organization to be an object of alarm.

Koigarezaki Simbun

koigarezaki-news-agency.png

Overview: The Koigarezaki Simbun7 (恋昏崎新聞社) is a news organization that disseminates information about current events in the paranormal society. The report primarily through the medium of web news and disseminates information to an unspecified number of members of the public that should be kept confidential in the view of normalcy preservation. Especially against the Foundation, reports from an adversarial view is evident, and articles involving the Foundation include fabrications and biased reporting.

Koigarezaki, where the Koigarezaki Simbun is based, is a Location of Interest designated as LoI-0850. Koigarezaki exists in a different dimension where it is unknown how to travel, and is home to many former members of several GoIs. The majority of members of the Koigarezaki Simbun are said to be former members of GoIs, too. As a result, the Koigarezaki Simbun has special connections with other GoIs and is able to produce its own anomalies using technology derived from other groups. These factors make the Foundation difficult to deter the actions of the Koigarezaki Simbun.

Kisaragi Construction

Overview: The Kisaragi Construction (如月工務店) is mentioned by a number of anomalous buildings and related products. Although there is testimony that they describe themselves as a small private construction company in the Tohoku region8, a number of unnatural examples as for-profit organizations have been identified, and the purpose of their activities is not clear.

Although they are proactive in responding to their client's requirements when producing and building, their deliverables have in many cases had unintended negative effects on the parties involved. It is unknown whether this is due to differences in values with the general public, or whether it is based on clear intentions such as intent to harm.

There are many unknown details about the activities of Kisaragi Construction, and the information has been able to obtain so far is limited. However, there are some materials and testimonies that relate to "oni" found in old Japanese traditions, and there are also many traces of magic and unusual effects that have not yet been clarified. The Foundation is currently investigating the actual state of this organization, its members, and its relationship with the outside world.

Confederate Island Countries of Phantom

cicp.png

Overview: The Confederate Island Countries of Phantom is a federated nation of islands that exist in a different world. The member islands existed in our world until around the 14th to the 16th century, but they made the move to the different world for reasons such as to escape the investigation and colonization by the great powers. Based on this event, the legend of the phantom island that is an island that was once described on nautical charts, but whose existence was denied by the research of later generations, was born.

In the world of the CICP, there are a group of unusual items called "relics", and especially powerful items are called with the initials of T or 丁9, and are used for the defense of the member islands. The move of the member islands is also due to relics, which are said to have been transferred from a paranormal civilization aid known as "Thule". Thule is said to have disappeared after the formation of the CICP, and no details are known to the inhabitants of the member islands.

The world of the CICP and our world are still able to come and go in multiple ways. Anomalous entities originating from the world of the CICP have also been discovered, and there have been cases of damage to the surroundings. It is unclear what the inhabitants of the member islands think of their former homeland, but depending on future developments, it has been designated as a GoI because it could become a threat.

Special Affairs Division, Public Security Bureau of Metropolitan Police Department

警視庁公安部特事課.png

Overview: The Special Affairs Division or simply SAD, Public Security Bureau of Metropolitan Police Department is an undercover investigative agency within the Metropolitan Police Department organized to deal with abnormal phenomena and paranormal crimes.

SAD is under the control of the Special Affairs Investigation Bureau of National Police Agency, which is a member of JAGPATO, and is indirectly influenced by the policies of the Japanese Government and JAGPATO. Their main activities are aimed at grasping trends and restraining the behavior of GoIs throughout Japan, mitigating the impact of anomalous entities on society, and protecting the general public from threatening anomalies. — But due to bureaucratic issues and lack of financial resources, personnel, and equipment, their activities are often difficult.

The Foundation is building a cooperative system with SAD but the mutual exchange is limited due to concerns about information leakage.

Dark Sushi

yami.sushi

Overview: The Dark Sushi (闇寿司) is a group of sushi chefs who deal primarily with food-related anomalies. The organizational structure is similar to a chain or goodwill in the restaurant industry and consists of plural restaurants and employees per restaurant.

Several members have similar anomaly to SCP-1134-JP. However, the "sushi" used by the Dark Sushi includes foods that are generally not classified as sushi, and the anomaly of SCP-1134-JP-1 generated from such foods is unpredictable. Moreover, the members are actively expanding and developing technology related to SCP-1134-JP-1.

The origins of the Dark Sushi, such as the date of its founding and founder, are unclear, but the current leader has been identified as the person called Yami10. While details of the organization policy are unknown, research suggests that the group has some sort of dissatisfaction with traditional sushi eating culture.

The Dark Sushi has rapidly grown in strength in recent years in the paranormal food products community, and this may be accomplished through the unusual psychological manipulation techniques possessed by the group. Additionally, most members tend to have no qualms about using violent and heavy-handed means. The Foundation remains vigilant for the Dark Sushi which active links with other GoIs as they grew up.

Mujin-Getsudō-Shū (Lunar Guidance Ninja Mutual-aid Association)

NinjyaNinjya

Overview: Mujin-Getsudō-Shū (無尽月導衆) is a group that may be mentioned in relation to "ninja/shinobi" or "ninjutsu/ninpō". They are presumed to engage in intelligence and operative activities in exchange for money, often conflict with the Foundation.

The level of technology of Mujin-Getsudō-Shū and the details of the anomalies they possess are unknown. While some evidence accounts suggest that its members prefer to use traditional weapons, tools, and arts. However, there is also evidence to suggest the organizationally use of the latest technology both anomalous and normal.

It is presumed to be based in Japan but is confirmed their activities outside this country as well. Information on this GoI is lacking and the Foundation is collecting it.

Eden leap Mutual Aid (ElMA)

eee.png

Overview: ElMA is an anomalous religious group that operates in pandimensionality with "leap to different worlds" as its doctrine or goal. Leaping to different worlds refers to move to other worlds as a religious practice of ElMA. The objects of leaping reflect each member's perception of "different worlds" and range from other dimensions, parallel universes, the past, extraterrestrial stars, pocket dimensions, dream worlds, lower and upper creation worlds, and higher and lower conceptual spacetime.

Although leaping to different worlds has religious significance as service to the Goddess Elma, a deity espoused by believers of ElMA with no details, there are few religious precepts of ElMA except for this leap. They tend to be very loose in their organizational structure and abstain from cult-like behavior and fanatical sacrifice, and their missionary work is carried out voluntarily by devoted followers known as migssionary11. This is thought to be due to the influence of the myth of the legendary migssionary "Founder", who is considered to be their religious ideal.

Due to the cross-world missionary work of the "Founder" and migssionaries, ElMA has chapters scattered across many worlds, including the base universe where this document is being written. Some of these chapters are small and isolated due to not yet established their means of leaping to different worlds, while others are mutual aid by chapters from several worlds and possess more technical capabilities than the Foundation. It is suspected that a large number of GoIs and PoIs are on friendly terms with the ElMA, either for the purpose of using their leaping technology or by helping to create anomalies at their request.

To date, ElMA has not shown a consistent attitude towards the Foundation, but due to the biological/causal/spatiotemporally physical dangers of leaping to different worlds are unknowns, the Foundation views ElMA as a pandimensional threat and has been tracking its movements through interactions with other world Foundations.

Kamikase Clan

KWTHJCTtmk.jpg

Overview: The Kamikase (神枷) Clan is a kinship group existing for a long time in Japan. They excelled at "talking", they were responsible for a wide range of tasks which mediating wars, mediating between organizations, and compiling history books under the patronage of the Shūshū-In. It is said that Kamikase's "talking" was not limited to interpersonal communication. Although they did not have standard means of opposition, such as reality bend and thaumatology, they can talk with and amicably persuade animals, plants, and even divine entities.

Kamikase did not have an armed force but served as the core of a mutual aid organization for the weak. As part of its role, they protected war orphans and stragglers, displaced children, and make a member of the clan. They were influential in some regions, mediating daily village quarrels.

However, their connection as a consanguineous group has broken down and there are only descendants scattered throughout the region that retains a few characteristics today.

Liferaft

liferaft-d.png

Overview: Liferaft is a collective name for a mutual aid organization of intelligent beings coming from various different worlds. The name Liferaft is for convenience only, is not a self-proclaimed name of each community and its members. The members and communities are scattered around this world. The composition and size etc. of the communities may vary widely. It is speculated that there is like the leader because of the lack of interaction between the communities, while they are cooperative.

Its members are mainly intelligent beings that were accidentally transferred from a different world than the one where this text exists, and many of them have different characteristics and traits from the existing human race and biological species. The purpose of each member is to return to their original world or to obtain a stable living environment, but they are not identical. For this reason, it has been confirmed that in some communities of Liferaft, members join and leave with high frequency.

Although Liferaft first came to the attention of the Foundation in 19██, it is known that the organization of Liferaft's origins was active in Europe and other parts of the world around the late 19 century from many related documents and interviews. It also is ascertained that several similar mutual aid societies that have no direct relationship to the current Liferaft existed in history prior to the 19 century. Based on this and what the Foundation has heard from those involved in their organizations, it is thought that Liferaft's organizational identity is thin.

Their relationship with the Foundation is, by its nature, broadly gentle tension state. On the other hand, some community behaves in very hostile ways, another one conceals themselves very secretive, and yet another one establishes some relationships. So the Foundation determines how to cope with each specific community of Liferaft. The relationship between Liferaft and other groups is similar to that of their and the Foundation, and some members of each GoIs temporarily enroll in Liferaft also are detected.

Imaginanimal

Imaginanimal_logo.png

Overview: The Imaginanimal is an intelligent metaphysical aggregate of "conceptions of animals" which is an unspecified scale and has no systematic organization. The information obtained from several applicable cases indicates that the name "Imaginanimal" is a classification name derived from an external designation.

Each existence that makes up the Imaginanimal are the conceptions of "animals and characters based on animals except for humans" held by human beings and any other existential intelligence, and defined by "positive perceptions for humanity as a conceptual host and cultural neighbor" and "interferences for physical intellectual activities that use cognition by existential intelligence as an access route". They have the distinctions of species and individuals, but the boundaries are far more unstable than those of physical entities.

They are a very proactive aggregate about contacting existential intelligence, and their attitude is generally friendly. However, they often show an estrangement with human values and an uncomprehending of human society. In addition, activities such as "enlightenment of the conceptions to an unspecified large number of people to stabilize the access route" and "interference for the existential side through incorporeal entity or dream entity, or others", and "contact with members of other GoIs and anomalous technology holders" are occasionally found although unsystematic, and the Imaginanimal is a risk that cannot be ignored in terms of normalcy preservation.

It is a major matter of concern for the Foundation that is very difficult to investigate their whole aspect and to actively interference with them from the existential side due to their nature. For this reason, the Foundation allocates the GoI-6636 number to the Imaginanimal. On the other hand, there are no significant tensions or conflicts between the Foundation and the Imaginanimal, and the modulability of the containment/concealment protocol through direct negotiation is comparatively high in cases where contact has been established.
