An instance of SCP-5083-1 being chased by a crowd of people in New York. (2006)


Assigned Site Site Director Research Head Assigned Task Force
Site-17 T. Graham M. Lodge O-17

Special Containment Procedures:

Foundation Satellites are to report any new radio transmissions originating from Eunike 185 to Site-17. If any messages contain coordinates, MTF-Omicron-17 ("Bank Busters") is to be dispatched to that location in anticipation of an SCP-5083 event. Any messages received from Eunike 185 are to be classified to the general public. Omicron-17 should keep track of any large crowds in the vicinity but stay at least 30m away at all times before the 5083 event occurs. Personnel are not to attempt to prevent 5083 events by disrupting crowds in the area.

Any 5083-1 instances detained by Omicron-17 are to be transported to Site-17 and stored in Low-Danger Humanoid Holding Wing Sub-Section 3. If the number of 5083-1 instances contained at Site-17 reaches or surpasses 15, further instances are to be hydraulically pressed for easier storage.

If a 5083-1 instance is eaten, agents are to be dispatched to the consumer's home to seize newly appeared currency.

Currently, 15 instances of 5083-1 are contained at Site-17. 8 of the instances are missing at least one body part.


Description:

SCP-5083 is an event that occurs 1-4 times a year in the vicinity of a group of at least 10 people. First, an instance of SCP-5083-1 will materialize next to the crowd and begin running in the opposite direction. All members of the aforementioned crowd will gain a strong desire to consume 5083-1 and begin to chase after it. After the event, any affected people will become amnesic, forgetting the events since 5083-1's manifestation, and losing their desire to consume 5083-1.

SCP-5083-1 is a humanoid entity composed entirely of solid gold. Despite this, they are able to animate their limbs in the same fashion as humans and have been observed to run up to speeds of 35km/h. While 5083-1's body is as durable as gold in almost all situations, its body will become soft and malleable upon any attempt to consume it. To date, no negative effects have been recorded as a result of digesting 5083-1 material.

If the 5083-1 is eaten, the consumer will receive a pile of their local currency inside their home (if one of their doors or windows are unlocked) or on the roof of their home (if all entrances are locked) sometime in the next 10-12 hours. The currency will be worth as much as the gold making up the 5083-1's body. If the mass of the 5083-1 is consumed by multiple people, they will each receive currency proportional to the amount of 5083-1 they consumed.

Unless they have undergone at least Level 3 memetic agent resistance training, any further people that see 5083-1 after initial manifestation will gain the same desires to consume them. When 5083-1 stays at least 30m away, and out of sight from, all affected individuals for at least 120 seconds, the event ends and 5083-1 is classified as 'escaped'. The Foundation is currently aware of at least 22 escaped 5083-1 instances. What happens to a 5083-1 when it 'escapes' is unknown.

48 hours before each SCP-5083 event, a radio transmission will be sent from the asteroid, Eunike 185, located in the asteroid belt, with the coordinates of the event. An example of one such transmission from 2012/04/10 is as follows:

ROUND 36: 11°41′13″N 106°35′47″E

Interviews with SCP-5083-1 instances have failed to uncover any useful information about their existence.


Addendum 1: Notable Incident Reports


Addendum 2:

On 2020/09/19, a small envelope appeared on the floor of corridor 12, Low-Danger Humanoid Holding Wing Sub-Section 3, Site-17, next to the SCP-5083-1 containment cells.

The envelope contained a letter:

An investigation into PoI-933 "Dexter" is ongoing.
