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 containment of SCP-XXXX. The SCPF Benmoulai, a Heritage-class offshore patrol cutter, is currently assigned to enforce a security perimeter of two kilometers around the anomaly. False documents have been prepared to support the cover story that no boat traffic is allowed inside the perimeter due to 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.

Containment Protocol Feldman is to be enacted once every two months, or at the discretion of Containment Consultant Howard, as per the terms described in Addendum XXXX.X. Outside of enacting Protocol Feldman, no contact should be made between SCP-XXXX-A and Foundation personnel. Attempts to remove SCP-XXXX-A from the SCP-XXXX containment perimeter will be treated as attempts to intentionally induce a K-class scenario, and will be met with lethal force if necessary.

The coral shoals which surround SCP-XXXX.

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 species not native to the region, such as Carcharhinus leucas (bull shark), Pan troglodytes (chimpanzee), and Theraphosa scartiel (black morning spider), 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.


Addendum XXXX.1 - Initial Contact Video Log


Note: This is the official transcription of the initial encounter with SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-A. The original video file is available by request for any personnel Level 2 and above.


Addendum XXXX.2 - 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. US-2 Amphibious Search and Rescue aircraft Samuel Enderby 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.


Addendum XXXX.3 - Containment Forum


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.
