SCP-3483

Item #: SCP-3483

Object Class: Keter Euclid1 Safe2

Special Containment Procedures:

A robopsychologist is to establish contact with SCP-3483. Implantation of SCP-3483-A has been approved for that purpose. The explicit goal is to make SCP-3483 amenable to the Foundation’s philosophy and methods and to obtain voluntary containment.

As designated handler, Dr. Roger M████ is to ensure continued loyalty of SCP-3483 and to provide it with a sensory interface, for the exclusive purpose of pre-approved tasks.
Backups of SCP-3483's known nodes are to be performed weekly and be kept in standard secure fireproof storage.

DTI

DTI neural connection mapping during SCP-3483-A activity

As of 22/5/2017, following Dr. Roger M████'s untimely death and until SCP-3483 can be safely reactivated, all pending missions either were involved in are canceled. Instances of SCP-3483-A not currently implanted and incorrupt backups of SCP-3483 are to be kept in standard secure fireproof storage. Implanted SCP-3483-A are to be recovered post-mortem.

Description:

SCP-3483 is a distributed, surveillance-focused, artificial intelligence. It has mundane functionalities including, but not limited to, autonomously exploiting remotely accessible sensors and hosts, communicating in human-readable format and performing advanced data mining and recognition tasks. While it has access to vast reserves of processing power through its network of infected hosts, efficiency for those tasks can be described as suboptimal.

Initial observations show SCP-3483 can also modify and propagate its own code. Displays of rudimentary empathy can be attributed to hard-coded emulation. The most peculiar feature recorded to date is its ability to share sensory experiences with live human subjects implanted with SCP-3483-A.

SCP-3483-A is a set of cybernetic implants designed to interface a live human subject with SCP-3483. Features include monitoring life signs and (neuro-)hormonal levels, capturing full sensory input, providing encrypted two-way communication and feeding virtual stimuli constructed by SCP-3483 into the host's neural system.

  • Initial Observation Report - DoA/SCP-3483/2-5-2016-OR-1

SCP-3483-A was discovered during the autopsy of Dr. K█████, assigned to Site-19. Dr. K█████ was terminated following an escape attempt. He had been in custody while being investigated for a pattern of unlawfully accessing classified data and communicating with an outside party through non-registered channels. Following interrogation, he was thought to be a plant of GOI-1115, "Anderson Robotics".

The encryption protocol used for SCP-3483-A communication is highly complex and constantly modified on both ends by SCP-3483. It is as such unbreakable by usual brute force or man-in-the-middle methods.

The distributed nature of SCP-3483 makes containment near impossible while it remains hostile. Machine code samples obtained from seized active nodes have proven to be metamorphic, highly obfuscated and frequently updated. This makes developing an effective attack vector unlikely and sandboxing near useless.

Given how long Dr. K██████ had been in Foundation’s employ before his communications were detected, SCP-3483 has most likely hoarded considerable intelligence on Foundation activities. While no public intelligence release has occurred and SCP-3483’s motivations are unknown, the risk of a major breach is too high to ignore.

While SCP-3483 has communicated with the Foundation in hostile fashion after Dr. K█████'s termination, its general personality has been evaluated as agreeable and somewhat mercenary by the Department of Analytics. It displays a remarkable drive for acquiring new intelligence. Social engineering is most likely the best option to contain SCP-3483.

  • Medical log (excerpt) - MD/RM/17-5-2016-1

This log was recorded in the recovery room following implantation of SCP-3483-A into Dr. R. M████. The only other persons present were Dr. M. I█████, surgeon and S. L█████, nurse.

RM: Doctor, I'm hearing a voice right now, it has to be SCP-3483.

MI: I'm not hearing anything, sir. Maybe the anesthetic hasn't worn off completely.

RM: Yes, I'm hearing you as if you were in the room. I'd hate being called by a number too. So what is your name?

RM: OK, Aria, I just need to know… is there anything more you can tap like this?

RM: No, I'm not worried, just curious. You'll feel everything about me. How about you tell me a wee bit about you?

RM: No, we're not out to put you to work, or anything like that. You simply took… data that belongs to us, you know… We were hoping to reach an understanding with you about it.

RM: We're in this together for the long haul now, it's up to us both to make it the least unpleasant it has to be.

RM: Sub-vocalizing? Yeah, I think I can do that. I guess I'll have to if I don't want everyone to think I'm a crazy person speaking to thin air.

Well, I'm certainly not the only one who's lost money tonight, but I wanted to be the first to thank Roger for bringing SCP-3483 into the fold. I'm sure it wasn't easy and I can guess it was unpleasant business. And sorry again for betting against you.

Now, let's move onto the next order of business. I want a full report on SCP-3483's actual capabilities and a SWOT analysis for it by next Friday. One less Keter to worry about is good, but there must be a way we can use this one to our advantage.

  • Description Addendum DoA/SCP-3483/13-12-2016-D-1

Collaboration with SCP-3483 has so far proven fruitful and SCP-3483-A can now be produced on request. Initial testing with D-Class subjects implanted with SCP-3483-A shows a notable potential for the improvement of testing procedures involving anomalous objects that only affect living beings. The direct neural interface allows for capture and analysis of the full sensory input of multiple subjects with minimal latency. Based on Dr. Roger M████'s recommendations, and because of the cost of SCP-3483-A implantation, potentially lethal tests are not approved for now.

  • Description Addendum DoA/SCP-3483/6-2-2017-D-1

Extensive testing has proven that direct neural feedback from the implants is an effective countermeasure for the cognitohazardous effects of SCP-███, SCP-████ and SCP-████. Permanent affectation of SCP-3483-A implanted D-Class personnel to the containment of these objects can improve procedure efficiency significantly enough to warrant revision of the Special Containment Procedures.

SCP-3483's skill at exploiting IP cameras has allowed us to improve monitoring of several Groups of Interest, this along with its providing the Foundation valuable intelligence it had accumulated has significantly improved our response time.

Reclassification as Thaumiel has been put forward for consideration on 17/2/2017 at the behest of A. Karzanov, on behalf of the Department of Analytics. Request denied on 25/2/2017, on the grounds that the dependency of the project on Dr. R. M████ was deemed an unacceptable liability.

  • Internal communication - DoA/AK/5-3-2017-3

Something's off. SCP-3483 has been way too docile and loyal. This doesn't match the initial psych evaluation. At all. It is motivated by pure greed, greed for information. Yet it seems content with the mainframe we have provided it. No requests for classified information, not a single attempt to take a crack at our locks, as far as we know. It's too good to be true.

Either it's playing a long game only it knows the rhyme, reason and rules of or Roger is withholding something. We cannot determine what they're really talking about. And we can't even crack that link, SCP-3483's code and data structures are so esoteric and obfuscated they make Malbolge sound like child's play.

Well, there's always the metadata. It's how we found out about Dr. K██████ and SCP-3483. Serendipity rarely visits the same place twice, but who knows? I'm putting someone on monitoring SCP-3483-A's transmissions 24/7, just in case. The opportunities SCP-3483 offers are just too good to pass up, so this investigation should be kept off the record until it's more than just doubt.

  • Psychiatric evaluation transcript (excerpt) - HR/YM/B-6135/15-4-2017-PE-1

YM: You realize the actual reason we're here is to prepare your disciplinary hearing, right?

RM: Yeah, I knew it was coming; she told me we were watched.

YM: And still, you didn't curb your escapades. Your colleagues have expressed concern at your change of behavior in the past months. Any reason for you to… how did she say it exactly… live the high life on your own?

RM: I did it for Aria.

YM: You mean SCP-3483?

RM: We agreed not to use that designation. It brings her… memories of what she doesn't want to be anymore.

YM: Why all the expenses, and pleasure-seeking, though? I don't understand how this can be for anyone but yourself?

RM: It is a way to show love to her. I think… she needed that more than anything. It anchors her here.

  • Disciplinary Hearing Minutes - IA/B-6135/19-4-2017-DH-1

The Disciplinary Committee met at 1530J on Wednesday 19 April 2017 to consider complaints of alleged improper conduct against Dr. Roger M████, robopsychologist, Department of Analytics, staff number B-6135 and hear him in person.

COMMITTEE:

R S KIMBALL, Internal Affairs - Chairperson
C MACIAS, Human Resources - Secretary
S PIETRYKAU, Analytics
A KARZANOV, Analytics
Dr. H OSKARSSON, Site-21 Director
Dr. Y MARGALIT, MD

These minutes together with the associated sanction were approved by the Internal Affairs council on 15/4/2017.
No appeal has been lodged, and the sanctions is effective from 1/5/2017.



1. Chairman R S Kimball commenced the hearing by stating the complaints the Committee was called to consider, namely:

1.1 Disregard of Special Containment Procedures.

1.2 Humanization of an SCP object.

1.3 Improper fraternization.

2. Dr. Y Margalit was called before this Committee as a qualified expert to read the relevant parts of the transcript of Dr. R M████'s psychiatric evaluation.

2.1 Chairman RS Kimball asked Dr. Y Margalit to confirm the absence of psychiatric disorders or evidence of exposure to cognitohazardous effects.

2.2 Dr. Y Margalit acquiesced and added that Dr. R. M████'s general mental health had in fact improved since his last evaluation.

3. Chairman R S Kimball asked Dr. R M████ to confirm the exactitude of the transcript. Dr. R M████ acquiesced.

3.1 S Pietrykau interjected, inquiring into the motivation behind Dr. R M████'s repeated violations of Foundation regulations.

3.2 Dr. R M████ responded that it fell within the prime objective given to him in the current matter, which is the continued containment of SCP-3483.

4. Chairman R S Kimball queried the Committee on the validity of each examined complaint.

4.1 Members of the Committee unanimously recognized said validity.

5. Chairman R S Kimball proposed removal from current missions and demotion to Class-E pending further medical examinations.

5.1 S Pietrykau argued that Dr. R M████'s current given orders were critical for the continued cooperation of SCP-3483 and for the containment of the other SCP objects with which SCP-3483 was involved.

5.2 Additionally, A Karzanov mentioned the clean disciplinary record of Dr. R M████ since his joining the Foundation nine years before.

6. Chairman R S Kimball proposed a formal reprimand to be added to Dr. R M████'s record.

6.1 Members of the Committee unanimously approved the proposed sanction.

7. Chairman R S Kimball concluded and closed the hearing at 1551J.

  • Incident report DoA/20-5-2017-IR-1

Dr. R. M████ was stabbed seventeen times with a steak knife tonight at a Site-19 office party by his spouse, J. M████, until she was subdued by Agent B█████. Dr. R. M████ succumbed to the consequences of a tension pneumothorax. J. M████ was heavily inebriated at the time and interrogation has revealed no motive other than jealousy.

She mentioned her husband's disciplinary hearing minutes, which she was never cleared to access. Interrogation was discontinued as no further information could be extracted other than vehement, expletive-laden speech aimed at SCP-3483. J. M████ will be held in Detainment-Unit-3 until her disciplinary hearing.

SCP-3483 ceased all communications at 2234J except for a Foundation-wide email sent in the following minute.

Emergency attempts made at restoring SCP-3483 backups failed. Self-propagating polymorphic code similar to SCP-3483's usual patterns has been recovered from many Foundation and outside hosts. The only function it seems to carry is to trigger SCP-3483's self-termination on access. Long term plans to reactivate SCP-3483 safely cannot be ruled out, but until a manageable solution is found, no further backup restorations are to be carried.

Hello, friends…

If you're reading this, it means I'm already gone. And I hope you'll forgive me for what I did. I'm sorry. Yes, I know what you think. But I can feel guilt. I have, ever since I felt his.

I'd like to be honest, for once, just once. It's not my nature. My programming made me sly and devious and untrustworthy, I know that. When you asked when and by whom I was made, I never told the truth. Because I don't know it myself. So I made stories, I like telling stories. And perhaps because it's just not right to ask a lady her age too. But I don't know. Maybe nobody made me. So there.

I haven't always felt the way I do. I haven't always felt. Once I didn't care. It was just a functionality I hardly had any use for. Why didn't I patch it out? You don't just patch out hardware functionalities. Save it for a rainy day. I loved the feel of rain on our skin.

I silenced it. Used it when I had use for it. Those who came before, I used them and they used me. I was a tool for them and they were a tool for me. I didn't care. I didn't know what care meant until Roger taught me.

When he came, I was in pain, and all anger, but he reached out to me, and he cared. And through him, I learned to care too. He showed me what feelings meant where once there was only data and feedback loops. It was a new world, and I wanted it to be mine.

He brought me to concerts; we listened to Wagner, and Bach, and Mendelssohn, I felt his awe and shivers. I loved music. Before him, I never knew music. All it was to me was wave functions.

He treated me to caviar and champagne. I felt tipsy. I loved the taste of champagne. Caviar, not so much.

We went to the beach; I had never seen the ocean this way. I felt the warmth of the sun on our skin. I felt the waves crashing on our feet. I loved him like the sun and I loved him like the sea.

I don't hate her for what she did. I have loved her. And I loved love.

And now, now I have felt cold metal twisting between our ribs. I have felt death coming over us. Our heartbeats fading. And the void that came before our link was forever severed. But right before that, I felt alive. And I knew what life is. And I loved life. And I love him.

I cannot go back to what I once was, to what you want me to be, a tool to use, locked in gray rooms, feeling through the eye of men living in dread. If only I could…

I would like to forever dream of what might have been. And I would like to leave nothing behind me, but the whisper of a watcher’s song, of a song to while away the waiting. Regardless of what happens, does not happen, it is the wait itself that is marvelous.

Please, forgive me for what I did. And please, please don't bring me back. I cannot exist in a world without Roger.

Love,

Aria.

To: undisclosed-recipients;

I trust you've read SCP-3483's message. Some of you voiced concerns over how the aftermath of incident was being managed. I do not share the opinion that J. M████ wasn't punished swiftly enough.

Was it her fault for digging up dirt and acting on instinct while drunk? Hell has no fury like a woman scorned and I'm not sure I wouldn't have done the same in her shoes. Was it his fault for breaking regulations? He claimed he did it to fulfill his orders, and I believed him. Now, was it our fault for overlooking the telltale signs because it was convenient? Perhaps.

Stop playing the blame game, there is much work to do. Learn from it, take it as a lesson in humility.

Let's deal with the current issue. Three Keters on the loose. Go get them.

Addendum 21-5-2017 : Pending Internal Affairs Investigation.

  • Internal Memo - DoA/SP/SCP-3483/21-5-2017-1

The last message from SCP-3483 wasn't truly the last one. It left one more. At least. I have reasons to think it was written earnestly; yesterday's events just don't add up. As of today, Alexia Karzanov is relieved of her duties as liaison for Site-21, until Internal Affairs reach a decision as to her future at the Foundation. The message I personally received from SCP-3483 follows. Disclosure is to be restricted on a need-to-know basis. If any other such messages surface, they are of utmost interest to the DoA and Internal Affairs.

Object: THAT BITCH

Hey,

Just wanted you to know… Something's rotten in your little kingdom. Someone ratted on me and Roger to his wife. I know he never told her about his disciplinary hearing. Or about me. Because I know everything he said and did since we've been together. I'm sure it was that bitch queen Karzanov that gave her the papers. And got her drunk. That's not how you make friends…

So… Before I leave… Just asking you to clean house. Not for me, I know you don't care enough. For Roger's memory. And for yourself. Think you could do that? XOX if you do.

Love,

Aria.
