Item Identification Number: SCP-123-EX

Object Class: Explained

Special Containment Procedures: N/A

Description: SCP-123-EX, formerly known as Person of Interest-1213 ("Ottone Trevisan"), was a 23-year-old male of Italian descent, born on 7/11/1907 in New York City, New York, who was believed to be anomalous. Prior to the events detailed in Addendum-123-D, SCP-123-EX was theorized to be capable of causing statistically improbable outcomes, all of which would end in SCP-123-EX's favor.

SCP-123-EX's personality had been described as easily agitated, and prone to overreaction. SCP-123-EX had previously been affiliated with a local university, but eventually ceased affiliating with it. It is unknown what caused this change.

SCP-123-EX was contained by the Foundation between 11-19-1928 and 5-21-1930, contained at Site-11, formerly located in [REDACTED], Illinois. It was contained within a Standard Humanoid Containment Cell-A.1

SCP-123-EX was officially contained as an SCP object on 12-20-1928 after what were believed to be accurate tests complied by Dr. Sharp and presented before the O5 Council. SCP-123-EX was classified as Euclid while in containment.

Discovery: SCP-123-EX was captured following a raid on GoI-070 ("Chicago Outfits") in collaboration with the Bureau of Prohibition on 11/1/1928. The Bureau had received an anonymous tip claiming that Person of Interest-523 ("Julius 'Sawteeth' McGallan"), member of GoI-001 ("Chicago Spirits") was working at an illegal brewery operated by GoI-070, and that Person of Interest-523 was attempting to harm the latter's manufacturing efforts.

Foundation officials contacted the Department of the Treasury, requesting a cooperative operation to stop manufacturing efforts of GoI-070 and to arrest Person of Interest-523.

Twenty agents were dispatched from each organization. During the raid the brewery caught fire, causing an explosion that resulted in the building's collapse. All suspects were killed except for SCP-123-EX.

Addendum-123-A

On 11-17-1928, SCP-123 was ordered to write down the events that occurred within the brewery before its destruction.

It was around 11 A.M, and I was helping a few harps move some barrels around when I heard the gunshots from outside. Then someone yells something about coppers in the building, and I start feeling scared. You see, the boss had the dryheads and coppers off our backs. It was a real smart operation, the brewery was. The boss has the prohibition guys paid off and we kept the profits. Every dryhead in the city was drinking like the rest of us.

The two harps run off somewhere and I sit down. I've been pinched before, so I knew what to do. When you work in the business, you learn to take a pinching every once in awhile. I lit myself a fag and sat down near some barrels. The one thing that I noticed was this guy near the window. I remember him looking scared, but cant recall anything big, other than he looked like he saw a ghost. I think he may have had something in his mouth, like he was one of those squirls [sic]. It didnt look right. I call out to him, and he tumbles back, and falls into some of the barrels. I remember alcohol going everywhere.

I must have dropped my cigarette cause I remember it all just catching fire. He starts screaming, running all over the place. Some of the harps start getting some water buckets and throwing some water onto him but it didn't work. They all just dropped dead the moment they did it. He's still running around screaming, and he's bumbing[sic] into so many different things.

Then he bumbs [sic] into the brewer, and the entire thing just explodes, and the entire building starts to shake. And it weren't no normal shaking either. It was like the foundation itself was gonna collaspe [sic] on itself, crushing all of us. Around this time, I start getting afraid. I couldn't even force myself to move, that's how afraid I was.

It's in that type of moment that makes a body start praying. It wasn't something I thought about, I just started doing it. I don't believe in god or anything like that, but my mother taught me the Lords [sic] Prayer, and I'm glad for her teaching me that, cause I repeated it a thousand times in that building.

The building began to shake, and I close my eyes. Again, I'm praying. Then I hear the giant boom, like dynamite. I open my eyes, and I see the building around me, destroyed. I'm the only one alive. I thought I was dead at first, but only after looking down and seeing I was practically untouched. There was always this large patch of the roof with nothing on it, and it always leaked water. I was in that patch.

I guess you could say I'm the luckiest man alive.


Addendum-123-F

The following entries are from SCP-123-EX's diary prior to the discovery of the events detailed in Addendum-123-D


Addendum-123-D

S.C.P Object Proposal

By Dr. Herbert

Date: 5-11-1930

Object: SCP-123

Proposal: To remove SCP-123 from containment, to change his object class from Euclid to Explained, and to reintegrate.

Reason: SCP-123's anomalous abilities have been proven to be non-existent. New Hume related technology provides adequate evidence. Hume coefficient of normal human.

S.C.P. Personnel Disciplinary Form

Date: 5-11-1930

Personnel: Dr. [REDACTED] Sharp, Level 3, Site-11

Reason: Interference of S.C.P. Foundation operations, lying under oath, general indifference to standard Foundation operations.

Disciplinary Action: Demoted to Level 1 official, assigned to Site-43, permanent restriction of interactions with sapient objects.

Note: This is the first disciplinary action Dr. Sharp has received since his initial employment. Despite this, the O5 Council has considered his actions severe enough to warrant full demotion and restrictions due to the recent incident involving SCP-123. His lack of loyalty to the Foundation is worrying.


Addendum-123-E2

SCP-123-EX requested to talk to Foundation personnel. Dr. Herbert volunteered, but only on the condition that he was allowed access to the Foundation issued electrical recording device. When asked, he wished to have an accurate record of the conversation.

Interviewer: Dr. Herbert

Interviewee: SCP-123-EX


<Begin Log>

Dr. Herbert: Mr. Trevisan, you wished to speak to me?

SCP-123-EX: Yeah, doctor, I heard you were going to, well, sack me?

Dr. Herbert: Where did you hear that information?

SCP-123-EX: Friends.

Dr. Herbert: Are you referencing your mysterious friend who has been slipping you documents into your containment cell for the past two years?

SCP-123-EX: How — How did you know that?

Dr. Herbert: You admitted it in your journal. I'm surprised you didn't notice it earlier.

SCP-123-EX does not respond

Dr. Herbert: I can give you answers to some of your questions, if you'd like. I have been observing you for a while, since Dr. Sharp decided to study you.

SCP-123-EX: What does Dr. Sharp have to do with this?

Dr. Herbert: Everything.

SCP-123-EX: Who slipped those documents into my cell?

Dr. Herbert: Sharp, obviously.

SCP-123-EX: Why?

Dr. Herbert: To protect you, of course.

SCP-123-EX: Why?

Dr. Herbert: I don't know. I have theories, of course.

SCP-123-EX: What do you think?

Dr. Herbert: I think he knew what kind of predicament you were in. A fish out of water, so to speak. And considering what you were involved in — Chicago Spirit, Sawteeth, mobsters — he wanted to give you a helping hand. He wanted to give you information on the world, even if it was small in comparison to his personal knowledge. He gave you the Spirit documents to show you the danger involved — and how important it was for you to be anomalous. He didn't directly tell you, of course. He couldn't trust you entirely. You were a gangster, after all.

SCP-123-EX: So he just felt sorry for me?

Dr. Herbert: Yes, possibly. He may have seen a little bit of himself in you. Or maybe he got a personal thrill out of breaking the rules, although that last theory is unlikely, due to his clean record.

SCP-123-EX: What the hell are you people?

Dr. Herbert: I can't answer that, or I'd be shot.

SCP-123-EX: What the hell is the Chicago Spirit?

Dr. Herbert: Violent sociopaths with very few reservations on using violence to achieve their own ends.

SCP-123-EX: Stop fucking with me.

Dr. Herbert: Not my field of expertise. I'm a containment psychologist, not a historian or analyst.

SCP-123-EX: What's gonna happen to me?

Dr. Herbert: I don't know, not my department. However, I can tell you it isn't going to involve protecting you.

SCP-123-EX: W-Why?

Dr. Herbert: Because you're not anomalous, and we can't go around protecting every street urchin who has enemies.

SCP-123-EX: No, you don't understand, they'll kill me!

Dr. Herbert: And every day we experience death and fight it, and considering the economic state of things, we can't go throwing money around. We have to use our resources sparingly and efficiently. We aren't going to waste resources and man power on protecting you or any of your gangster friends.

SCP-123-EX: They'll — they'll fucking kill me!

Dr. Herbert: Not our problem.

SCP-123-EX grabs hold of Dr. Herbert's arm

SCP-123-EX: Please you have to reconsider. Please, I'll do anything, I'll work for free, I'll be a guard, I'll do whatever you want just please —

Dr. Herbert jerks away

Dr. Herbert: Get off me!

SCP-123-EX: Please.

<End Log>3

Following this interview SCP-123-EX was removed from containment and custody transferred to the recently created Bureau of External Affairs, later renamed to Department of External Affairs. SCP-123-EX was released on 6/1/1930.
