SCP-3816
facewall.jpeg

An instance of SCP-3816-1 mid-growth. Not enough facial features are present in the image to trigger replication.

Item #: SCP-3816

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-3816 is to be kept in a 4m x 4m x 4m chamber with 1 meter of additional lightweight insulation protruding outwards on all faces1. The interior of the chamber is to be completely mirrored and illuminated by a single long-term LED. Maintenance is to be operated only by personnel wearing anti-cognitohazard facial scrambling gear.

Any instance of SCP-3816-1 forming outside of the initial maintenance chamber is to be immediately covered in a quick-hardening foam by personnel wearing facial scrambling gear until no portion of it is visible. The foam is only to be dissolved when infrared imaging confirms the absence of the SCP-3816-1 instance within. Identical tactics are to be employed during containment breaches whenever possible.

Upon containment breach of SCP-3816-1, all onsite personnel are to be equipped with facial scrambling gear for the duration of the breach and until all instances have dispersed. Any targets of SCP-3816-1 are to be subdued, tranquilized and transported to the containment chamber, where the access hatch in the chamber is to be opened, allowing SCP-3816-1 and the absorbed target to return to SCP-3816. Security cameras and any and all other image-capturing devices will be disabled for the duration of the breach.

Description: SCP-3816 is a teenage caucasian male2, standing 2 meters tall and weighing 84 kilograms. SCP-3816 suffers symptoms of Alopecia Universalis3 and severe mental deficiency, being completely unresponsive to nearly all stimuli and remaining almost entirely motionless, with breathing and occasional whispering being the only actions taken. SCP-3816 does not blink, and is noted to be smiling at all times.

SCP-3816 is noted to repeat the same sound at least once every two minutes. An audio clip of this sound is included here:

The significance of this sound is unknown. It is unknown if SCP-3816 is attempting to communicate, or even capable of communication.

SCP-3816-1 is the collective designation for any and all replicas or exact portrayals of SCP-3816's face, including reflections, photographs or other recorded media. Instances of SCP-3816-1 are fully animate and have shown the ability to grow on any surface, taking on the surface's properties while doing so. This ability extends to non-physical mediums, such as video recordings. In such cases the instance will move towards and eventually protrude from the surface used to view it, as if it were moving through a 3-dimensional space.

The major anomalous abilities of SCP-3816 trigger when any subject views more than 35% of SCP-3816's facial features, whether directly or through SCP-3816-1. Directly following the observation, the manifestation of additional SCP-3816-1 instances upon surfaces within a 0.8-meter radius will begin. The collective instances of SCP-3816-1 will continue to self-replicate towards the observer, growing on the surface within their radius closest to the target at an average rate of once every 7 seconds. Each instance of SCP-3816-1 will replicate only one or two times for each target, but the exponential replication allows them to pursue targets over vast distances, generating large trails of SCP-3816-1. These trails pose an extreme risk due to to each individual instance carrying the potential for activation upon observation. No known method of halting the growth of SCP-3816-1 upon viable surfaces has been found.

Once SCP-3816-1 instances have trapped their target within their radius, they will begin to grow upon the target themselves. At this point, self-replication speed increases to an average of once every 4 seconds, completely enveloping the target's body in less than a minute. Upon enveloping the target, SCP-3816-1 will continue to grow outwards until a roughly spherical shape is established. Following this, the SCP-3816-1 conglomeration will begin to roll towards SCP-3816, destroying obstacles using sheer mass. If an obstacle is unable to be destroyed, the SCP-3816-1 instances will resume replication until the mass threshold necessary for destruction is achieved. This poses a risk similar to that of the SCP-3816-1 trails. Upon making physical contact with SCP-3816, the SCP-3816-1 instances will be rapidly absorbed into it, with the entity showing no apparent increase in mass or volume. The enveloped target is also presumably absorbed. Upon absorption of the target, any remaining instances of SCP-3816-1 not currently targeting another entity will begin to demanifest over the course of approximately 12 minutes.

Addendum 1: On 6/22/2016 it was discovered that SCP-3816-1 instances can be triggered by observing each other, resulting in them enveloping each other and being reabsorbed into SCP-3816, effectively nullifying the cycle if done at an early stage. Containment procedures have been updated accordingly.

Addendum 2: On 8/05/2016 SCP-3816 breached containment when an attempt at using drones and laser-imaging apparatuses to construct a 3D digital model of SCP-3816's face was made. The experiment was done with the intent of finding a way to potentially nullify the trigger by identifying the memetic trigger within the face. However, the facial modeling program created an instance of SCP-3816-1 within the software. SCP-3816-1 then spread over the Foundation intranet, resulting in ██ casualties. Internal webcrawlers have been deployed, and have successfully deleted an additional 207 instances. Algorithms predicting the spread of SCP-3816-1 have estimated a remaining 16 instances.

Addendum #3#: On ██/██/████ digital SCP-3816-1 instances accessed an online video chat service in usage by researchers and began to replicate rapidly across onsite intranet services. Breach protocol is now in effect.
