Item #: SCP-3597

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: The current victim under the effects of of SCP-3597 is to be kept in a padded room 5m x 5m x 3m within the Light Containment Zone. Those given access to this SCP must have Level 3+ clearance although no personnel may be admitted clearance to go within the containment cell. SCP-3597 must be equipped with a straitjacket at all times in order to prevent himself from attempting self-harm. All requests given from the one affected by SCP-3597 must be denied to prevent self harm.

Description: SCP-3597 is a phenomenon in which a person expresses a strong overwhelming desire to kill oneself. The person effected by this phenomenon will repetitively attempt suicide with no results. The person affected will not be able to be killed or gain any injuries by any means despite the amount of the attempts. The only known way to kill the person effected by SCP-3597 is to do it manually, which will unfortunately pass on the phenomenon's effect to the one who killed him.

The current victim of SCP-3597's effects is a man of the name of ██████ Parker. He is a caucasian male of a skinny build with brown hair and brown eyes. Before taken to Site ██ for testing, he was a member of the ████████, New Jersey Police Department. He was effected by SCP-3597 after killing the former victim in the SCP, ████ Samson, a known serial killer of the town.

The one under the effect of SCP-3597, ██████ Parker's desire to cease living seems to increase as time goes by. When first brought into the facility he was serene and had a desire to eat and join others in conversation. Currently, he only appears to have a desire for death, as his serenity has left and he now has ceased eating and normal conversation whatsoever.

Those within the same room as the person affected by SCP-3597 or up extremely close to the door to their containment cell are immediately given a minor desire to kill one effected by the SCP. All SCP personnel who come within that distance away from the cell are immediately confiscated from the room, as the effect appears to wear off as the person goes farther away from the containment cell.

The area of the SCP's effect seems to grow increasingly larger throughout the containment of SCP-3597's effected victim. When Parker was first brought into Site ██, the effect that causes people to have a desire to kill him would only span 2 feet from him but it has increased dramatically since. Many theorize why this could be. Most people believe the size of the effect increased over time or it increases as he attempts to kill himself although the cause is currently unknown.

The effects of SCP-3597 is passed on every time the victim of it is killed by another. The person who killed him will not present effects immediately. It takes approximately two weeks before the person presents minor depression, increasing to suicidal thoughts within another 90 hours. So far, it appears that the effects might be irreversible.

██████ Parker: What! let me go! Who are you people! Is this a cult!? This is a goddamn cult!

Doctor Banning: We are not a cult. Anyways, please answer our questions honestly. Why did you kill ████ Samson?

██████ Parker: What? Are you friends or something? It felt good at the time? I don't know why. He's a killer. He deserved what he got anyways.

Doctor Banning: Interesting. Did you feel any psychological changes in your mind after you killed him?

██████ Parker: What? Of course not? Do you think I'd be scarred for life or something?

Doctor Banning: On August, 11th ████ you started exhibiting minor signs of depression. Do you know what caused that?

██████ Parker: I simply realized how much of a cunt I am who deserved to be fucking run over by a train. Now shut the fuck up and let me go!

Doctor Banning: I suppose you aren't going to tell me then. Well then. May you tell me how you survived a knife through your throat?
██████ Parker: Just fucking get out and leave me the fuck alone.

Addendum 3597-4: Personal Notes

Greetings to those of you who may be reading this. I am █████████ Parsons. I am the director for Site ██, which happens to be the home of SCP-3597, which I am here to discuss to you my feelings about. The man being subjected to the effects of the anomoly truly does not deserve what he is getting. He seems like a nice guy. He may have been aggressive towards Doctor Banning but I understand him in his current circumstances. He was a member of the police force after all.

Anyways, I'd like to speak about SCP-3597's containment. Is it well contained? In all honesty, I don't know. After the incident on November 28th, we can't be sure. Arthur was affected by SCP-3597 when the containment cell wasn't even open. Do not me alarmed though. We will try to investigate the SCP and attempt to find a way to make sure SCP-3597's effect does not breach containment.
Thank you for listening.

Addendum 3597-5: Onsite Report and Testing Cancellation
Due to a problematic occurance involving the research and containment of SCP-3597, we will no longer be recording the Onsite activity of SCP-3597. We will also be discontinuing the testing of SCP-3597 for safety reasons.

I do apologise for the inconvenience and do hope you do not worry about the security of SCP-3597's containment.
