SCP-106 poses a unique threat to containment efforts due to its anomalous effects. As such, the Special Containment Procedures provided in this file are not intended to be an exhaustive summary of circumstances that could result in a containment breach. Staff assigned to SCP-106 are advised to regularly review this file for the latest information regarding SCP-106 as it becomes available.


SCP-106 as photographed during Breach Event 106-Zulu

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-106 is, at present, effectively uncontainable. All recorded manifestations of SCP-106 have resulted in a considerable threat to normalcy along with high civilian loss of life, rendering Foundation responses frequently impotent. Containment is therefore focused on suppression of public knowledge of SCP-106 and quarantining civilian areas in which SCP-106 is known to have manifested. To this end, Mobile Task Force 106-Alpha ("Get Off My Lawn") has been authorized to assist in ongoing disinformation campaigns in regions known to have been affected by SCP-106. MTF 106-Alpha is to provide appropriate cover stories, ranging from spree killings to toxic waste accidents, in order to provide plausible explanations for the effects of SCP-106. In such cases where a cover story cannot be reasonably utilized, large-scale use of Class-B amnestics is permitted.

SCP-106, when encountered by field operatives or elements of MTF 106-Alpha, can be temporarily slowed or forced to prematurely return to the Pocket Dimension through the use of abruptly activated, extremely intense lights. To facilitate mitigation of SCP-106's anomalous effects in the field, all personnel conducting operations in close proximity to SCP-106 must carry portable light devices capable of generating light in excess of 80,000 lumens. SCP-106 has also demonstrated confusion when presented with structures or areas comprised of numerous rooms and hallways; as such, any physical interaction with SCP-106 is to be conducted in apartment complexes, office buildings, or other buildings of above-average size and internal complexity.

All assets and personnel in direct physical contact with SCP-106 or its discharge are to be considered lost. No recovery efforts are authorized.

Description: SCP-106 designates an amorphous entity of unknown genus and origin presumed to generally possess a humanoid shape. While SCP-106 is capable of assuming the form of any human subject it has previously made physical contact with, it seems to prefer the form of an elderly male in a state of dramatic decomposition and will utilize said form if stealth is not required or impossible.

The "natural" form of SCP-106, if it possesses such a form, is unknown as it has exclusively been observed utilizing either the aforementioned elderly form or the form of another human subject. Analysis of SCP-106's physical composition and nature is further complicated by it potentially being comprised of multiple individual subjects simultaneously, as such behavior, though infrequent, has been observed on multiple occasions. The general characteristics of SCP-106 instances consist of the production of an unknown black substance that, upon contact with any matter, causes a degenerative effect analogous to corrosion or biological decomposition depending on the nature of the material affected.

SCP-106 is a sapient predator. It will actively pursue human subjects in the 20 to 35 age bracket, attempting to immobilize them through severe damage to tendons or internal organs prior to drawing them into a non-Euclidean space referred to as the "pocket dimension." Descriptions of this pocket dimension originate solely from eyewitnesses, as all cameras and other recording devices sustain critical damage upon entry [REVISED; SEE ADDENDUM II]. Of note is the alleged presence of approximately 25,000 to 30,000 living human subjects, all of whom appear to be in a state of paralysis. While these subjects are stated to remain capable of vocalizing, any movement beyond the facial region is seemingly impossible. Nearly all subjects are described as children or adolescents. SCP-106 possesses virtually unrestricted control over the geometric configuration of the pocket dimension, and while departure from it is possible, SCP-106 appears to aggressively pursue subjects who escape, preferring them over other prey subjects.

SCP-106 demonstrates unusual competence in navigating Foundation installations, having successfully initiated breach events in three (3) separate containment facilities since its initial apprehension by the Foundation. SCP-106 does not appear to be confused or otherwise dissuaded by Foundation facilities of high complexity even when such complexity makes them virtually unnavigable to staff. It is presumed that SCP-106's knowledge of Foundation architecture and internal facility layouts is due to ███████ ███, and ████████ following ███████ [FURTHER INFORMATION REDACTED. SEE ADDENDUM II]

[Pages 1-39 excluded for brevity]

Behavioral Notes

SCP-106 is generally understood to exhibit behavior consistent with one of three possible "states," though deviations from these states are not impossible. This information is intended to function as an aid, not an exhaustive list of possible circumstances in which SCP-106 could be encountered.

Idle: When not engaged in other behaviors, SCP-106 is typically found hanging from the ceiling of its containment chamber or standing in place in a manner best described as catatonic. It will disregard most external stimuli, save for the introduction of potential prey or an immediate opportunity at escaping its cell. While SCP-106 is less overtly aggressive in this state, it is not "safe"; it remains fully aware of its surroundings and can, at any time, enter a more active state. SCP-106 has used this state as a means of inducing a false sense of security in site staff numerous times.

Hunting: This state refers to any behavior consistent with the pursuit of prey subjects or attempting to breach containment. SCP-106 is extremely aggressive and, when it has selected a subject to target, will follow them relentlessly. It appears to deliberately prolong hunting sessions, consistently avoiding outright killing or capturing subjects even when presented with a situation in which it could do so immediately. Subjects often sustain injuries designed to cause extreme physical pain or otherwise slow them down but are not pulled into the Pocket Dimension until completely fatigued or incapacitated. SCP-106 demonstrates an intuitive knowledge of the layout of structures it operates within and can appear from walls, doors, or other surfaces in order to cut off escape routes.


Addendum I: Interview 106-A

Interview conducted following initial identification of SCP-106.

Subject: Description of SCP-106 and "Pocket Dimension"
Interviewer: Dr. Richards
Interviewee: Rachael Smith

Interviewee (Rachael Smith) is a 19 year old Caucasian female of average physical build with no apparent illnesses or injuries save for those sustained due to exposure to SCP-106. Damage appears to be largely isolated to the lower extremities, with the left Achilles tendon injured beyond repair.

Dr. Richards: Good evening, Rachael. How are you feeling?

Rachael Smith: I guess I'm fine. It hurts a little.

Dr. Richards: Sorry, what does?

Smith: [Gesturing to her left leg] The lower part of it.

Richards: I see. We can have somebody from medical take a look at that in a bit. I just wanted to briefly ask you a few questions regarding what you saw yesterday.

Smith: Look, with all due respect, Doctor, I already told —

Richards: Yes. Yes, I know. You told the recovery team everything about what you saw, and I don't mean to make you relieve anything upsetting. I just need to take some notes for my records and we'll send you on your way.

Smith: Wait — on my way? What do you mean?

Richards: Well, it's standard procedure —

Smith: No, wait. Hold on. Please don't send me back out there. Don't leave me alone.

Richards: Are you alright?

Smith: I just — I just don't want to be alone right now. You guys know about it, right? I'm not the first person you've talked to about this. You have to have something. Anything. Please.

Richards: Let's, uh…let's just get the questions out of the way first, then I'll see what I can do. Now then — you mentioned to the recovery team that you heard a "crackling," like popcorn. Can you explain?

[Smith inhales sharply before replying.]

Smith: I'm a, uh. A gas station attendant. I was working with Caleb. We've been working together…five? Maybe six years. Caleb and I, we — we close the shop up. Clean any spills, restock shelves that are low, that sort of thing.

Richards: How old is Caleb?

Smith: 17. It's his first job.

Richards: Did you notice anything strange about Caleb during previous shifts? Any weird behavior or odd mannerisms?

Smith: No. Can't say I did.

Richards: Right. Please continue.

Smith: Caleb likes to clean the popcorn machine. Why a gas station has a popcorn machine, I don't know. But he likes cleaning it. He used to say the smell reminded him of seeing movies with his dad. He, uh — not important. But he liked cleaning it. So he started to clean it, like he always does, and I walked over to the candy aisle to restock some candy. Things were fine for a bit, but then, he — he started complaining about a headache. No, a migraine.

Richards: Anything unusual about that?

Smith: Not really, except that he's a tough kid. Really doesn't bitch about pain. Like, ever. I guess he tried to ignore it for a few minutes, but he kept scratching the back of his head. He said it was getting worse and that he might need to take something for it, but kept working. I didn't think anything of it.

[Smith begins breathing more rapidly.]

Smith: A couple more minutes pass, and he starts moaning. It was this weird, uncontrollable moan. I guess he couldn't help it. I asked if he was okay, and at first it sounded like he was trying to say he was, but then he stopped talking. Again, Caleb's a tough kid, so I think nothing of it, right? But then I hear crackling. Like popcorn. I thought maybe he turned on the machine by accident or something — I don't know what I was thinking. But he was getting loud.

Richards: Why didn't you investigate more intensely? Your reactions seem almost negligent. Did you know he was injured at the time?

Smith: No — no, I just — I didn't know what to do. I wasn't thinking.

Richards: I'm not trying to insult you or make you feel worse, Ms. Smith, but it just seems odd. Why didn't you express more concern if this was such a rare occurrence?

Smith: Well, I went over to him. Put my hand on his back and asked if he wanted me to call someone. I assumed that maybe he was sick — some stomach flu. He said to go away. Really aggressively. So I did. I went back to restocking the candy. Twenty, maybe thirty seconds went by, and the crackling got louder. He stumbled out from behind the counter and moved towards me a little bit, and then fell on his face. I didn't know what to do. I was getting panicked. I started to call 911, but I couldn't hear anything over the crackling. The smell — Jesus.

[Richards hands Smith a cup of water.]

Smith: Thanks. As I'm dialing — can't hear the phone, but you know, I was trying — I heard something slick. It sounded like wet pavement almost. Squeaky shoes? I turned around. He —

[Smith becomes visibly distressed.]

Smith: His skin was falling off. Like, peeling off. Like — fuck, like a fucking potato being peeled. But he was alive. He kept asking for help, but couldn't talk. Something was in his throat. It sounded like he was gargling saltwater. Blood and this…weird black shit started coming out of him. Skin kept falling off. I was just fucking frozen. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know what to do. Oh my God. Oh my God.

Richards: Ms. Smith, it's alright. Calm down. You're safe. I know this is difficult for you, but you're helping us immensely. Please continue for as long as you remain comfortable.

Smith: His skin kept falling off. It was like something was cooking from the inside. I could hear something bubbling. These fucking — these boils kept popping up on his skin and bursting. Everything around him was coated in this bloody, black shit — it burned the entire store. The floor, the shelves, everything. I rolled him over. I don't remember why. I guess I thought he was choking on something. When I rolled him over, his fucking teeth spilled out of him. Oh my fucking God. Oh my God, Caleb —

Richards: Ms. Smith, I need you to calm down. We can postpone this interview and —

Smith: Please! Please! You can't let me go! You can't let me go! You —

Richards (to security): We need a sedative. Get a sedative, please.

Smith: He was smiling at me! He was smiling at me! Oh my God — oh my God — [Screaming] — No! Please! Please don't let me go! Please — [Screaming]

Conclusion: Subject was sedated and placed in temporary holding pending further assessment of her cognitive state. Interview terminated.

Addendum II: Exploration Logs

On ██/██/20██, Dr. Richards, in collaboration with elements of SCP-106 project staff, was able to develop a prototype anti-corrosive shielding capable of withstanding the effects of SCP-106's "pocket dimension." This shielding allows for unmanned reconnaissance drones to enter the pocket dimension and maintain a live transmission feed for brief periods of time. Dr. Richards subsequently proposed a series of exploratory operations from within the pocket dimension. Though these were approved, only three explorations were completed before the project was suspended.
