Special Containment Procedures: SCP-5342 is to be contained in a Standard Humanoid Containment Chamber within Site-132. Male personnel are not to interact with SCP-5342.

SCP-5342 is allowed to engage in a limited romantic relationship with D-Class personnel scheduled for termination. Said personnel are limited to interaction with SCP-5342 for two hours a day, three times a week, for a period no longer than 30 days (in accordance with standards set by the Ethics Committee). D-Class assigned to SCP-5342 are notified of its properties and are given a provisional supplement to offset atrophy.

Description: SCP-5342 is the anomalous human female Katherine Serre, aged 23. SCP-5342-I refers to the various forms of media (text, images, videos, etc.) attributed to SCP-5342 and the late Max Deafaux.

She exhibits an effect on males who engage in a romantic relationship with her. The subject gradually goes under a state of atrophy, affecting with fat, muscles, organs and bone. As the subject continues to decay, SCP-5342 shows improved signs of health; if at sufficient health, SCP-5342 becomes more physically attractive in proportion to the affected subject. Photographs and video of SCP-5342 differ from her actual appearance and speech, presumably to reflect the viewer's subjective standards of attractiveness.

If SCP-5342 does not have a male romantic partner, she will slowly undergo a state of atrophy and experience the same effects a subject would experience.

SCP-5342 was in a romantic relationship with former Junior Researcher Max Deafaux between 03/20/2017 and 06/21/2017. Throughout its course, Deafux underwent various anomalous effects, attributed to SCP-5342. The extent of Deafaux's atrophic transformation was believed to be caused by a non-anomalous disease; this has now been disproven, as shown in the following logs in Addendum X.

Deafaux was provisionally hired at Site-132 and was responsible for organizing data and submitting documentation for several SCP objects. He worked for a total of 5 months at the site before being laid off; he died several weeks after. He was commemorated posthumously for aiding in the discovery of the entity.

Addendum X: The following is an abridged log of SCP-5342-I excerpts. These convey the extent of Deafaux's relationship with SCP-5342. For full excerpts, refer to SCP-5342-Log-I.

Discovery: SCP-5342's anomalous effect was discovered after a Junior Researcher at Site-132 received a message from Deafaux. An excerpt below:

M.Dea: I don't have much time, mark. I'm due to die any day. thers this girl I found online ... she has the power to slowly kill others thousands of miles away. she killed me. I know it sounds crazy, but send someone here. my phone has everything you guys need to know. idk who she is. she needs to be stopped. pls.

Max Deafaux expired shortly after sending the message. Several personnel arrived at the Medical Wing and an autopsy was performed. The cause of death was attributed to organ failure; Deafaux's mobile phone was confiscated and the contents of SCP-5342-I were scrutinized to determine the validity of the late personnel's claim. Additionally, Deafaux's remains were decaying at an accelerated rate, despite efforts to preserve said remains.

PoI-FB4923 (later to be classified SCP-5342) was determined to be the cause of Deafaux's anomalous cachexia. PoI-FB4923 was traced and apprehended.

Prior to apprehension, personnel posed as the late Deafaux in an effort to retrieve more information on the entity. Some excerpts below:


PoI-FB4923 was found in Toulouse, France after compiling information found through the contents of SCP-5342-I, in addition to the limited information extracted from the user shinobu21.

The entity was apprehended and sent back to Site-132 to undergo classification. After interviewing and testing, PoI-FB4923, also known as Katherine Serre, was classified as SCP-5342.

Interview Logs: A number of interviews were conducted with SCP-5342 to determine the source of her anomalous properties. Notable interviews are listed below:

Addendum Y: Personnel engaged with the user shinobu21 again, in order to determine the origin of SCP-5342's properties.

She may not have much time left. We want to make sure we get as much info as we can so we can prevent things like this from happening in the future.

It's like she changed. In one way, I was happy for her. And the other way, it reminded me of how lonely I was.
shinobu21
Oct 18, 2017 3:51 PM
I wanted to tell him about what she does to people.
I was afraid I wouldn't be friends with Kat anymore.
But
She already broke up by then.
Better late than never I guess.

Anyways, I am better now. Maybe she wasn't the best friend.
The other people were fine tho.
Max too.

Why does that make sense?
She was always like this. Manipulative.
Not everyone liked her.
But why would she do this to me?
I gave her so much support.

meiK
Oct 18, 2017 4:04 PM
Any info you give will help us. And it helps her.
shinobu21
Oct 18, 2017 4:08 PM
No, it won't help her.
She was like me. Alone and online.
Then one day she started getting all these boys.
I asked her how she did it.

She would always joke about how she wrote a letter to the devil.
Signed it in blood. She asked for love in her life.
I never believed in that stuff. Especially at the time when she started doing drugs. I told her to stop, but she wouldn't listen.
shinobu21
Oct 18, 2017 4:10 PM
Maybe she wasn't joking after all.
idk
Sorry, I dont' think I could be of much help.

Shinobu.
We've all made mistakes.
What matters is now.
And also, without your help, we would have never been able to find Kat and help her.
