Location of SCP-XXXX.


Special Containment Procedures (Revision 18.03.2019): Naval Control Detachment Gamma-Solus, a subdivision of Task Force Gamma-6, has been formed to oversee the security of SCP-XXXX. The SCPF Benmoulai, a Heritage-class offshore patrol cutter, is currently assigned to enforce a perimeter of two kilometers around the anomaly, under the cover story of an endangered species research study. As the anomaly is located beyond major shipping lanes, outside interference is considered unlikely and it has been designated a level-2 security priority.

Outside of enacting Containment Protocol Feldman, no contact should be made between SCP-XXXX-A and Foundation personnel. Protocol Feldman is to be enacted once every four months, or at the discretion of the Acting Containment Consultant, as per the terms described in Addendum XXXX.X. Attempts to make unauthorized contact with SCP-XXXX-A or remove SCP-XXXX-A from the containment perimeter are considered grounds for immediate termination.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a desert island located in international waters of the North Pacific Ocean. The island is approximately 60 square kilometers, mostly composed of a dense tropical forest. Although the island was present on satellite imagery prior to Foundation suppression, and is visible from distances up to thirteen kilometers, there is no evidence of historical exploration or habitation. The only current inhabitant is SCP-XXXX-A.

The ecosystem of SCP-XXXX is very unusual for its geographical area, including animal species not native to the region (such as Carcharhinus leucas and Pan troglodytes), as well as several similarly incongruous flora species.1 Most notably, the island is almost completely surrounded by dense coral reefs, which make shore landing dangerous for larger vessels.

SCP-XXXX-A is an elderly human male, estimated at eighty-four years of age, who claims to have inhabited SCP-XXXX for several decades. Analysis of a blood sample taken from SCP-XXXX-A indicates that he is genetically identical to deceased American comedy actor Robert Osbourne Denver.

Foreword: On February 25, 2019, the SCPF Liopleurodon was transporting an experimental containment apparatus from Site-45 to Site-15 when onboard instruments registered a Level 3 spike in Sapphire aspect radiation.2 The vessel was being escorted by Mobile Task Force Theta-5, who located the source of the readings and dispatched three personnel to investigate. The following was transcribed from a Foundation-standard field audio recording unit attached to Agent Khamo's vest.

Warner: Don't worry, Cy. I've dealt with Type-Blues before. And if I think we might be dealing with a Type-Green, we get the hell out of Dodge and call in the A-team.

Addendum XXXX.3 - Incident MA-XXXX-ט


On 14 March 2019, Director Szarabajka ordered that SCP-XXXX-A should be transported to Site-15 for containment and questioning. The SCPF Regalis was dispatched to the island, and SCP-XXXX-A was brought on board with minimal resistance. The vessel departed the island at 11:45 PM GMT, and was expected to arrive at the site within twelve hours. Contact with the Regalis was lost two hours later, and attempts to re-establish radio communications were unsuccessful. Prior to the loss of contact, there had been no indication of distress from the vessel.

After an hour of radio silence, a flyover was requested to assess the situation. The Samuel Enderby3 was deployed to the ship's last known location, and was able to locate and retrieve the vessel's black box data recorder, though no other wreckage or evidence of survivors was visible.

Analysis of the recovered data found that the atmospheric conditions around the Regalis had changed rapidly, including a drastic rise in temperature, causing highly localized and violent storm conditions; this event was designated Meteorological Anomaly XXXX-Teth. The phenomenon was not initially registered by weather tracking systems due to being concentrated in an extremely small area around the Regalis.

The following audio recording was recovered from the data recorder of the Regalis, and appears to document the final moments before it sank in the storm. Most of the speakers have been identified.

Date: 15.03.2019
Recorded by: Bridge Security Camera 44

Present in Recording:

  • Captain Drenush Kurtaj
  • Lieutenant Sarit Hamutal
  • Special Agent Brendan Mark Hood
  • Security Officer Lio Jameson
  • Security Officer Cristian Carballal
  • SCP-XXXX-A
  • Third Engineer Rufus Swart

Recording starts as automated emergency systems come online. Klaxons can be heard in the background, as well as frequent crashes of thunder and the sound of waves colliding with the hull. A door opens and closes, presumed to be Agent Hood entering the bridge.

Hood: Captain, what the hell is going on?

Kurtaj: We're working on that. Right now I'm just trying to keep my ship on the surface.

Hood: How did we not see this coming?

Hamutal: There was nothing on radar! This storm came right the fuck out of nowhere!

Kurtaj: Contain that shit, Lieutenant. Swart, what's your status?

Swart: (over intercom) No longer taking on water down here, Captain, but I'm really not loving the sounds our drive shaft is making. Sounds like our props might be grinding and not catching the water. I've got two teams looking over it, but we might be at the mercy of the currents for now.

Hood: Shit. (speaking into radio) Cris, Jameson, get Gilligan up here immediately.

Kurtaj: Lieutenant, have you heard from 45?5

Hamutal: I think we're getting a weak signal, but there's a lot of interference. I can barely make out the words.

Kurtaj: Keep on it.

Kurtaj: (creaking sound, presumed to be the captain standing up) Is… is that the Ahituv?6


Closing Statement: Following this incident, SCP-XXXX-A was discovered on the northeast beach of SCP-XXXX, partially conscious and holding a life preserver from the Regalis.


Addendum XXXX.4 - Containment Forum


Internal Audio Recording Transcript

Date: 17.03.2019

Location: Site-15 Conference Room 223

Foreword: In the aftermath of Incident MA-XXXX-ט, Site Director Szarabajka called for a meeting of relevant personnel to discuss the event and determine necessary changes to containment protocols. The conference is transcribed below.

In Attendance:

  • Site-15 Director Vincent Szarabajka
  • Site-15 Containment Operations Superintendent Herman Winther
  • Internal Security Captain Vaishnavi Balakrishnan
  • Head of Research & Containment Erik Jespersen
  • Department of Occult Research Special Agent Robert Howard

HRC Jespersen: Thank you all for being here. I wish the circumstances were better, but I'm sure that this meeting will be beneficial for future operations.

Capt. Balakrishnan: Enough with the diplomatic bullshit. I want to know why eight of my men went down with a perfectly good ship—

Dir. Szarabajka: Easy, Captain. We aren't here to throw blame and point fingers. We're here to figure out what happened, why it happened, and how we can keep it from happening again. I gave the order to detain XXXX-A. If you have a problem, you take it up with me. (to the HRC) Continue, Mr. Jespersen.

HRC Jespersen: Thank you, Director. And, Captain, I'm truly sorry about the loss we all suffered this week. It seems to me that we grossly underestimated a threat, and I'm hoping to never make such a mistake again. That's why I brought in help. This is Special Agent Howard, from the Occult Research division.

SA Howard: Good morning. Thank you for having me.

Supt. Winther: An occult specialist?

HRC Jespersen: Yes, sir. I believe that the anomalous properties of SCP-XXXX are the result of theurgic activity, specifically the actions of a GH-class entity.

Dir. Szarabajka: Okay, slow down. How did you reach this conclusion? Walk us through it.

HRC Jespersen: Right, okay. (sound of shuffling papers) So, when I was first assigned to SCP-XXXX, I didn't really know what to make of it. Frankly, it's one of the stranger anomalies I've worked on. Theories from my containment team were all over the place, and the presence of thaumatic energies on the island— without any evident source— only confused us more. Our first thought was that someone in Hollywood had made a deal with some entity, like with that Andy Griffith thing a while back.

Capt. Balakrishnan: Get to the point, please.

HRC Jespersen: Um— yeah, so we sent teams to check out the main filming locations for the original show— specifically, the Radford Studio Center in LA and Kāneʻohe Bay on Oʻahu— as well as to check out the two surviving main actors, Tina Louise and Dawn Wells. We also scoped out former residences for Bob Denver. None of guys found anything at all unusual, so that told us the effects were most likely isolated to the island itself. Thaumatics aren't my area, so I contacted the ORD through a researcher I used to be an assistant to. She recommended Agent Howard to me.

SA Howard: I've worked in that field for several years, and I have some experience with deific entities. When I looked over the reports, I requested to be brought on board as a containment consultant.

Supt. Winther: So you believe there's some kind of god involved here.

SA Howard: Well, we prefer not to use that exact term, but… yes. I'm certain of it. The manifestation of the storm that brought down the Regalis was the nail in the coffin for me. Something with considerable thaumaturgical power does not want our Gilligan to leave his island. (sound of typing) Now, the definition has changed a bit over the years, but originally a GH-class entity specifically meant a trickster deity. Like uh, Eris, or Loki, or Cegorach. I think that's what we're dealing with here. This creature finds the castaway narrative amusing, possibly entertained by their futile efforts to get off the island.
