SCP-2639

Item #: SCP-2639

Object Class: Neutralized

Special Containment Procedures: As SCP-2639 were never contained due to the events of Incident 2639-1, the prepared containment procedures were never implemented. They have been included below for reference. A Foundation employee has been sent undercover to SCP-2639-2's place of work to observe him for any additional anomalous effects.

SCP-2639 will each be contained in separate standard humanoid containment procedures. Under no condition are either instance to be allowed access to playing cards, board games, or games of any other nature. They will be allowed a collection of reading material that will be updated on a monthly basis.

Description: SCP-2639 is the collective designation for SCP-2639-1 and SCP-2639-2, two male humans working in the emergency room at the ██████ ████████ Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. SCP-2639-1 is Samuel Luther M.D. SCP-2639-2 is Samuel Dumas M.D. In general, the two individuals are non-anomalous and appear to be very competent doctors. SCP-2639 will routinely1 play a game of poker while on break together. Depending on which instance wins this game, a different anomalous outcome will occur. If SCP-2639-1 wins the game, the patient he most recently aided will begin to make a phenomenal, often miraculous, recovery. If SCP-2639-2 wins the game, the condition of the patient he most recently aided will worsen. Generally, the conditions will change in non-anomalous ways; however, in several cases, minor anomalous changes were observed to facilitate the determined outcome.

SCP-2639-1 grew up in Boston, specifically the Allston neighborhood. However, SCP-2639-2 grew up in Mananas, Virginia, and moved to Boston to go to school for medicine. Both instances attended the Harvard Medical School and graduated in 1992. SCP-2639 both attend The Lighted Saint Church, a Roman Catholic church located near the ██████ ████████ Hospital.

SCP-2639 was discovered after SCP-2639-2 was involved with █ malpractice cases2, either leveled at him or at the ██████ ████████ Hospital. SCP-2639-1 and SCP-2639-2 were initially going to be contained as separate SCP objects, but observation of their common practices and routines revealed their connection. SCP-2639 was never contained, as SCP-2639-1 died in Incident 2639-1, during the observation phase of pre-containment. As SCP-2639-2 is not anomalous without SCP-2639-1, he was allowed to continue his work as a doctor without direct Foundation interference.

Observation Log: The following data was obtained during the observation phase of the pre-containment procedures. This is only a list of the cases Foundation personnel witnessed. It is believed SCP-2639 has been anomalously active for the duration of their employment to the ██████ ████████ Hospital, due to the existence of malpractice cases against SCP-2639-2.
