Item #: SCP-3694

Object Class: Safe

Containment: SCP-3694 is to be contained at Site-██ in a case made out of the glass SCP-3694-1 is made of. If for any reason SCP-3694 needs to be moved, SCP-3694-1, or any copies of it, must be equipped by all personnel involved in carrying it. Any personnel handling or viewing of media involving SCP-3694 must also wear a copy of SCP-3694-1. All staff at Site-██ must be removed after two weeks, and any unusual behavior must be reported to the on-site medic. All personnel who have worked at Site-██ must attend a mandatory psyche test, no matter how long they were working with SCP-3694.

Description: SCP-3694 is a small stone pendant, around two inches in diameter with a ‘Black Sun’ symbol etched into it.1 While SCP-3694 appears to be made of worn stone, no ballistic or heat damage has been able to make any mark on it. In fact, SCP-3964 maintains a constant temperature of -2ºC with the same dull surface. Another anomalous property of SCP-3694 appears to render anybody who gazes at it to go into a trance. This includes seeing SCP-3694 in mirrors, camera feeds and photos. (This effect does not work on animals or unconscious humans with their eyes open)
Subjects affected by SCP-3694 (Hereby referred to as SCP-3964-2) will only follow the orders of whoever was holding/wearing the pendant when the subject saw it. (If no one was holding the pendant when someone looks at it, afflicted individuals will attempt to remove it to a German pagan burial site near [DATA EXPUNGED]).
If no orders are given or being executed, instances of SCP-3964-2 will seek out unaffected individuals (Excluding their 'pendant bearer') and show them SCP-3694, or if that is impossible, kill them. If they are left alone for long enough they will search for nourishment and shelter and will sleep if tired, before resuming its normal behavior patterns. Affected subjects can also carry out complex tasks when told to by their standard bearer, including the laying out of a chess board, the assembly of an AK-47 rifle and the folding of an origami crane. No test subjects were able to complete these tasks before being exposed to SCP-3694, and each test was done intricatly and precisely (Chess pieces set dead-centre on their squares, all rifle components flawlessly assembled, and no overlapping folds or unintentional creases in the origami crane. It is unknown if they are part of a hive mind contained in SCP-3964 or in the associated ‘Black Sun’ SCP-3694’s effect will remain steadfast until the affected subject perishes.
Some reports say that SCP-3694 was used in 19██ by SS Oberfuhrer ██████ in the now abandoned German village of [DATA EXPUNGED] for personal purposes. Local fables say SCP-3694 put everyone under a curse and were sent to the nearby pagan burial site to be part of a sacrifice to the ‘Black Sun’.
SCP-3694-1 are a pair of spectacles with dark lenses. The mind-altering effects of SCP-3694 are nullified when viewing it with SCP-3694-1. Using the instructions found at where SCP-3694-1s recovery site, we were able to create new instances of SCP-3694-1 using [REDACTED]. How the materials used to make SCP-3694-1 give it those anomalous properties is unknown.
SCP-3694 and SCP-3694-1 were recovered in a police raid on a house in Argentina, in the town of [DATA EXPUNGED] inside a hidden room, along with 2,000,000 USD worth of WW2 memorabilia. The owner of the house and antiques, Mr ████, was found dead, having taken his own life with an original 1939 Luger semi-auto pistol. The details of why he did this are yet to be seen. (Tattoos similar to those found on the hacker’s body near Site-██ were found on Mr ████ (See Addendum-03))
While all of the other items were found to be non-anomalous, SCP-3694 was said to have made all policemen involved with the raid delusional, with all seventeen policemen commandeering a private plane to Germany where they brought the pendant to a pagan burial ground near [REDACTED] Castle.
The policemen were then promptly tracked down by Mobile Task Force ██-█ and terminated. One of the MTF agents, Agent ████, was also driven insane and tried to carry out some kind of ritual with the body of one of the terminated Argentinian policemen at the burial site. After several hours, foundation agents secured SCP-3694-1 and using instructions also found in the stash back in Argentina, and were able to terminate Agent ████ and recover SCP-3694. However, during transit seven (7) other agents caught glimpses of SCP-3694 and were terminated.
It is also advised to not look at SCP-3694 for too long, even with SCP-3694-1 equipped. Many researchers working on SPC-3694 have reported nausea and vague visions and hallucinations regarding pagan rituals and symbolism (See Addendum-02).
The burial site associated with SCP-3694 has been dated to have been around since ████ BC. While it does not appear to have any anomalous properties at first, any people leaving it have faced many unfortunate situations, ranging from divorce and financial debt to broken limbs and life-changing injuries.

Addendum-01: Doctor ██████ reported feeling ill after two weeks of researching SCP-3694. Two days later, he was found dead in his room, his death having no conclusive explanation. After the autopsy, ‘Black Sun’ shaped cuts appeared on his body. These cuts are not cognitohazards but have a highly acidic compound in them and have melted a hole in one medic’s latex glove, causing mild chemical burns. Further analysis of the wounds is underway.

Addendum-02: Doctor Weichelbraun had an ‘interview’ with an entity claimed to be SS Oberfuhrer ██████ five weeks from leaving the team working on SCP-3694. She recorded the following conversation:

Doctor Weichelbraun: [So you claim to be SS Oberfuhrer ██████?]
SS Oberfuhrer ██████: [That may be my name and title, but it is my deeds as the Stone Bearer that make me the man I am. I answer to no one but the Black Sun.]
Doctor Weichelbraun: [I see. So, you supposedly used SCP-3694 on the townspeople in [DATA EXPUNGED]?]
SS Oberfuhrer ██████: [Yes. I used it to herd them to the site of sacrifice.]
Doctor Weichelbraun: [And why did you do it?]
SS Oberfuhrer ██████: [I had worshiped the Black Sun for years, long before the coming of the Third Reich. They were pretenders and short sighted. This was my gift to the Black Sun. Not the motherland’s.]
Doctor Weichelbraun: [Did the ritual succeed?]
SS Oberfuhrer ██████: <Subject looks down> [No. A storm ensued that most of us, including myself, were buried underneath a landslide.]
Doctor Weichelbraun: [And how did SCP-3694 resurface?]
SS Oberfuhrer ██████: [My aide, SS █████████ must’ve taken it. He was one of two other SS officers who were with me. Of course, after the war, he commited suicide surrounded by artifacts of the war.]
Doctor Weichelbraun: [The man we found in Argentina?]
SS Oberfuhrer ██████: [That’s where you found the Sun Stone, was it not? Of course, it took a while before your institute realised that the Sun Rod would enslave all who gazed on it. Then you had to find the protective spectacles. All before your operative almost summoned the Black Sun before you killed him.]
Doctor Weichelbraun : [What is this ‘Black Sun’?]
SS Oberfuhrer ██████: [It is the shadow of all shadows, doctor. Our ultimate weapon against unbelievers.]
Doctor Weichelbraun: [And why did you think the ‘Shadow of all Shadows’ would help you?]
SS Oberfuhrer ██████: <Subject glares> [It is a binding of souls between the Black Sun and its sacrifice. It is in its nature to help its sacrifice’s kin.]
Doctor Weichelbraun: [So the sacrifice has to give itself up freely?]
SS Oberfuhrer ██████: [Yes, which is why we had the Sun Stone. The feeble minds of those in the village stood no chance against its power. But you will know soon enough, doctor.]<Subject then fades away, leaving the interviewer alone>

To see if SS Oberfuhrer ██████’s story held any truth, agents at the burial site excavated the earth underneath the landslide of 19██, where several semi-preserved corpses were found with two other instances of SCP-3694-1 found along with the assumed bodies of SS Oberfuhrer ██████ and his other SS aide.)
The same acidic compound found on Doctor ██████’s body (See Addendum-01) had helped preserve the corpses, but had made the surrounding soil extremely poisonous (No soil or any other flora was found over the landslide, and the ground was sterile of all but a few microbes.)
No other personnel working on SCP-3694 have reported any conversations or any other interactions with SS Oberfuhrer ██████, but many have seen a middle aged man in an SS uniform and other times with an older man in a white robe in their peripheral vision, with said visions also making appearances in their dreams. So far no personnel have made any contact with these individuals. Wither SS Oberfuhrer ██████ and any other hallucinations are a projection made by SCP-3694 or are outside entities is unknown. All Foundation personnel are to report any and all conversations or unusual behaviour that they see said hallucinations make.

Addendum-03: On ██/██/██, the Site-██ archives were hacked into and several photos of SCP-3694 were stolen. After tracing the IP back to an abandoned house near Site-██ Mobile Task Force ██-█ were able to terminate the perpetrator. The hacker had several ‘Black Sun’ symbols etched into his skin (Much like Doctor ██████ (See Addendum-01), however in a more organised fashion, with other diagrams and symbols as well, much like a ritual tattoo of sorts. It was deemed to not be a cognitohazard).It is assumed that the subject was going to leak the photos of SCP-3694 and attempt to cause worldwide chaos.

Addendum-04: ”Anyone talking about the ‘Black Sun’ outside of research will be detained and brought in for a psyche test. We don’t want any weird cultists around, and anyone claiming to see things that are not there, eg. long dead military officers or druids, will also be brought in for a psyche test. We don’t want a repeat of Jameson’s rampage, where he was [REDACTED] waving his [DATA EXPUNGED] and attempting to tell everyone that it was ‘The Black Sun’s █████’.” -Doctor O’Brien, Head of Occult Studies at Site ██.
