SCP-2847

Item #: SCP-2847

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Due to the nature of SCP-2847-1, Site-144 has been constructed as a means to secure its perimeter.

SCP-2847-2 is to be contained within a humanoid containment cell constructed around the subject, monitored by at least two personnel at all times. Personnel are not to enter the containment cell unless stated otherwise by site command of both Site-143 and Site-144.

Following transportation to Site-143, SCP-2847-3 is to be kept within a Faraday cage at all times. Interviews with SCP-2847-3 are to be conducted inside of containment.

Currently, all experimentation involving SCP-2847 and related subjects is to be delayed indefinitely.

Description: SCP-2847-1 is an underground lake located in █████ ████, Henan Province, China. It was initially discovered and secured after Site-143 was contacted by SCP-2847-3.

SCP-2847-1 occupies an area of 6,000m2, and has an estimated depth of 2,100m. The content of SCP-2847-1, while retaining the appearance of water, displays physical properties similar to iron, which is consistent with bodies of water affected by SCP-2711.

SCP-2847-2 is a humanoid entity, genetically similar to a male human of Han ethnicity. SCP-2847-2 is alive and responsive, but unable to form any coherent language. The subject's left arm and lower body are embedded within SCP-2847-1. 7 beryllium-bronze alloy nails of 6 cm in length are embedded in subject's spine.

SCP-2847-2 does not require any form of sustenance, and no indication has been given that it requires sleep. While exhibiting symptoms of severe malnutrition, the subject's overall condition does not appear to deteriorate.

Update: An iron needle of 16cm in length has been observed to be held in SCP-2847-2's left hand. It is theorized that this object's properties may be similar to SCP-2711's, and is the cause of SCP-2847-1's existence.

SCP-2847-3 is a computing device containing an artificial intelligence, originally situated in proximity to SCP-2847-2. The object's exterior appears to be a bronze cube measuring 1m x 1m x 1m, with various signs of modification. A touch-screen is embedded in the side (prior to relocation) facing SCP-2847-2. The object's interface bears resemblance to a Windows XP interface.

SCP-2847-3 is capable of using a variety of languages to communicate, including: Chinese (traditional and simplified), English, Russian, Latin, and ancient Greek. SCP-2847-3 requires no outside power source, and is able to access the Internet despite a lack of network coverage.

Update: With the help of SCP-2847-3, 10 instances of organisms have been identified to be embedded within SCP-2847-1 at a depth range of 500m to 1,500m. Only one of the ten organisms shows active life signs.

Interviewed: SCP-2847-3

Interviewer: Head Researcher Xue Qing

Foreword: The following transcript is taken from the first interview with the subject.


<Begin Log>

[IRRELEVANT DATA REDACTED FOR BREVITY]

Dr. Xue: Then please explain your nature, SCP-2847-3.

SCP-2847-3: I am Boyi (伯益), Scholar of Xia Dynasty, Advisor to Yu the Great (大禹), he who appeased the floods. My body might have perished, but thanks to this machine, my mind is preserved.

Dr. Xue: And SCP-2847-2?

SCP-2847-3: He is Lord Gun (鲧), royalty of Xia, my mentor and good friend. Please forgive him, his current situation is… unfortunate, but a necessary sacrifice.

Dr. Xue: Can you tell me what happened to SCP-2847-2?

SCP-2847-3: He used to be a proud father… but now, he is merely the jailer of this iron prison.

Dr. Xue: What is the purpose of this place?

SCP-2847-3: Great beasts lurk within the abyss, all servants to Nüwa, the Dragon of Blood and Flesh. Great havoc they have caused. Lands submerged, people perished, knowledge lost. We had to forge water into iron, so that they are forever sealed.

Dr. Xue: How is this possible?

SCP-2847-3: Yu the Great, our wise king, prayed for enlightment from our broken father, Fuxi. He crafted great ships that sailed through the stars, and reached Taisui. There, he witnessed Father Serpent and Mother Dragon. When he returned, he forged nine needles that can appease all waters. One of them is now in Gun's hand.

Dr. Xue: You were suggesting that there are living creatures inside SCP-2847-1?

SCP-2847-3: Creatures they're no more, but abominations of mutated flesh. Blinded by the Dragon's promise, these men abandoned the wisdom of the Serpent. Craving power and dreaming of ascending, they became beasts instead. But in this iron prison, their wild wishes can never be realized. Three died within the first hundred years, with five following their footsteps when Shi Huang Ti rose to unite the land. Another lasted ten more centuries, and now, only one remains.

Dr. Xue: SCP-2847-3, I think that will be it for now.

SCP-2847-3: I will wait for your return. Such is an evil we must all face, and assistance from your kind is much needed.

Item #: SCP-2847

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-2847 is to be secured at its current location, and Site-144 has been constructed as a means to secure SCP-2847-1's perimeter. MTF Eta-21 ("Dragon Slayers") is currently stationed at Site-144.

SCP-2847-2 is to be contained within a humanoid containment cell constructed around the subject, monitored by at least two personnel and guarded by at least 5 MTF Eta-21 members at all times. Personnel are only allowed to enter the containment cell when given direct orders by site command of both Site-143 and Site-144.

Following transportation to Site-143, SCP-2847-3 is to be kept within a Faraday cage at all times. Interviews with SCP-2847-3 are to be conducted at least once a week inside of containment, supervised by Site Director Xue Qing.

SCP-2847-K is currently contained within SCP-2847-1, and must be monitored by at least two personnel at all times regarding its life signs and movements.

No experiment is to be conducted on SCP-2847 and related subjects.

Description: SCP-2847 is an iron needle of 16cm long, currently held by SCP-2847-2 in its left hand. SCP-2847 possesses the following two anomalous effects:

  • SCP-2847 is capable of affecting bodies of water that are more than 20 liters in volume by contact, so that the affected water (referred to as SCP-2847-1) takes on all physical properties of iron, except appearance. The effect will reverse once SCP-2847 is no longer in contact with more than 20 liters of SCP-2847-1.1
  • While held by a living SCP-2847-2, any damage done to SCP-2847-1 will be repaired at a rate of 200 liters per second.2

SCP-2847-1 is the current body of water affected by SCP-2847, an underground lake located in Mount Song, Henan Province, China. SCP-2847-1 occupies an area of 6,000m2, and has an estimated depth of 2,100m.

SCP-2847-2 is a humanoid SK-BIO3 instance, genetically similar to a male human of Han ethnicity. SCP-2847-2 is alive and responsive, but unable to form any coherent language. The subject's left arm and lower body are embedded within SCP-2847-1. SCP-2847-2 has undergone several physical mutations and modifications, including:

  • The upper half of the subject's body is covered in dark, snake-like scales.
  • Both of the subject's legs are fused together, forming a large, tumor-like mass.
  • The subject's left arm is significantly larger and anatomically disproportionate in comparison to its right arm. An extra joint is observed on the arm itself, while several extra knuckle-joints are observed on the fingers.
  • 7 beryllium-bronze alloy nails of 6 cm in length are embedded in the subject's spine.

SCP-2847-2's bodily functions are in a state of stasis, making the subject unable to consume sustenance or sleep.4 SCP-2847-2 suffers severe malnutrition due to its transformation into a SK-BIO instance.5 Despite this, the subject's condition does not deteriorate and cannot be improved.

SCP-2847-3 is a computing device containing an artificial intelligence built around 1900 BCE, and has undergone modification 10 times since then, presumably to become compatible with modern computing devices. The object's exterior appears to be a bronze cube measuring 1m x 1m x 1m, originally situated in proximity to SCP-2847-2. A touch-screen is embedded in the side (prior to relocation) facing SCP-2847-2. The object's interface bears resemblance to a Windows XP interface.

SCP-2847-3 is capable of using a variety of languages to communicate, including: Chinese (traditional and simplified), English, Russian, Latin, and ancient Greek. SCP-2847-3 claims to have been designed and built by Scholar Boyi of Xia Dynasty, with the purpose of keeping SCP-2847-2 company. SCP-2847-3 requires no outside power source, and is able to access the Internet despite a lack of network coverage. SCP-2847-3 has provided a significant amount of information about SCP-2847.

SCP-2847-K is a living, snake-like organism embedded within SCP-2847-1 at a depth range of 700m to 1,200m. Various limbs are observed on the subject's body, irregularly placed and with varying sizes. SCP-2847-K is currently in a tangled position facing upwards, its full body length estimated to be at least 900m. 9 other snake-like organisms, with varying length ranging from 100m to 600m, are likewise embedded within SCP-2847-1, though no longer displaying any life signs.

SCP-2847 was initially discovered and contained by MTF Eta-21 ("Dragon Slayers"), after Site-143 was contacted by SCP-2847-3.

Interviewed: SCP-2847-3

Interviewer: Head Researcher Xue Qing

Foreword: The following transcript is taken from the second interview with the subject.


<Begin Log>

Dr. Xue: Hello, SCP-2847-3.

SCP-2847-3: You have returned, this is most delightful. Truly brave souls indeed.

Dr. Xue: What prompted you to say so?

SCP-2847-3: You've stared into the abyss and seen the terrible beast, but come back to face the danger, did you not? Unlike my unfortunate descendants, who abandoned their duty and left me alone.

Dr. Xue: Are you suggesting that the entities inside the lake still pose a threat?

SCP-2847-3: As strong as the iron prison is, the flesh beasts are often resilient, and would tear at their cage every second. They have long been dreaming of returning to the surface, and ruling not only this land, but all lands under the suns.

Dr. Xue: We have confirmed that there is only one entity left alive.

SCP-2847-3: Yes, but also the most powerful one of them all. He who received blessing from the Six Beasts that serve under Nüwa. He who abandoned all codes of men and transformed into the black dragon he is now. With his immortal body towering like a mountain, he alone can reshape earth and disturb ocean, as well as spawn more of its kind. An unkillable beast to initiate an unstoppable plague.

Dr. Xue: If the entity is indeed capable of such, how is SCP-2847-1 able to keep it contained?

SCP-2847-3: The nine needles crafted by Yu the Great are works of miracle, but the one here is even more special.

Dr. Xue: How so?

SCP-2847-3: The royal bloodline of Xia inherited the true legacy of Fuxi, our Father Serpent. Among the vast vault of the royal palace, King Yu found the sacred metal, and with great skill, crafted a piece into this one needle. The wise king used the eight other needles to appease the floods and slay the beasts of flesh. And as Lord Gun now holds this last needle, his mind channels that of the Serpent, and keeps repairing the iron prison. As much as the beast struggles, his attempts are made futile.

Dr. Xue: You're saying that SCP-2847-2 is the one keeping the entity secured?

SCP-2847-3: Yes.

Dr. Xue: What happened if he passes?

SCP-2847-3: He will not, as he is the jailor, a burden he chose to bear. Cursed to live forever, much like the beast he keeps contained.

Dr. Xue: Does this mean SCP-2847-2 cannot be killed?

SCP-2847-3: I wish I could answer positively, but no, he is still mortal. And if he were to be killed, there would be no way to stop the terrible beast. Gun is the last one to use the needle, as the secret of the Serpent died along with the royal bloodline.

Dr. Xue: SCP-2847-3, I think it is time to pause our conversation for now.

SCP-2847-3: And I will be waiting for you. Your kind still has much to learn.
