SCP-5XXX, removed from its strap.

Special Containment Procedures:

SCP-5XXX is to be kept in a lockbox at Site-107. Only Level 3+ personnel are allowed to retrieve SCP-5XXX for testing purposes, with approval by the Ethics Committee.

All information and investigation into the Eddows and Blalock families are to be sealed.


SCP-5XXX is a silver cross necklace pendant measuring 35 by 21mm. Its anomalous properties manifest whenever a single subject sleeps with any type of body covering in an isolated room with SCP-5XXX. Once the subject has fallen asleep for least fifteen minutes, an object within the room will begin to play a ten-note refrain. A rendition has been included below for identification purposes.

This object (designated SCP-5XXX-1) can be either electronic1 or mechanical2 in nature; additionally, it does not need to be able to play the notes. SCP-5XXX-1 will continually play the refrain until the subject wakes up.

When this happens, the subject will experience strong feelings of nausea and fear. These feelings usually are exacerbated upon the viewing of SCP-5XXX-2, a humanoid entity approximately 180 cm tall. 5XXX-2 will occasionally produce guttural noises in conjuction with SCP-5XXX-1 going silent. SCP-5XXX-2 is not visible upon image/video capturing devices; however, shadows cast and sounds produced by SCP-5XXX-2 can be recorded.

If the subject attempts to hide by covering themselves up, the covering will start to rapidly increase in weight and retaining temperature3.

If the subject attempts to find SCP-5XXX-1 and prevents it from playing the refrain, SCP-5XXX-2 will grab the subject's wrist and vocalize the phrase, "No, no." SCP-5XXX-2 will demanifest if the subject continues with their actions by stopping the refrain; otherwise, SCP-5XXX-2 will release the subject but not demanifest.

Approximately 97.3% of subjects affected by SCP-5XXX die of either blunt force trauma or immolation.

Item History:

SCP-5XXX was discovered along with the burnt corpse of Marion Eddows in Innsmouth, Massachusetts during a standard anomalous item sweep on June 7th, 2019.

5XXX was formerly owned by the Eddows's daughter, Katherine Eddows, who died in the Innsmouth Abbey fire in early 2019. The disappearance of Ynette Blalock is theorized to be related to SCP-5XXX (see Addendum 02).
