Item #: SCP-3933

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-3933 is to be kept on a small display stand on a raised pedestal. The pedestal itself to be contained in a 2x2 meter plexiglass chamber. The chamber itself is to be bolted down onto the pedestal. The glass chamber is opened via keycard. SCP-3933 is to be polished and cleaned bimonthly. Testing of the object is at the discretion of Dr. Ebert.

SCP-3933-2 is to be kept in a six by six meter room with regular amenities. They are allowed to be given requested items at the discretion of Level 4 authorities alone. As of ██/██/201█, SCP-3933-2 has requested:

  • One (1) copy of Die Bibel (Lutherübersetzung) (granted).
  • One (1) 2x5 foot German flag to be hung in SCP-3933-2's quarters (granted).

Description: SCP-3933 is a German Pickelhaube helmet with an inner circumference of 67 centimeters from ear to ear and 20 centimeters
from front to back. SCP-3933 was recovered in ██████, Germany (see Recovery Log). The previous owner of SCP-3933, █████ █████ (deceased), was issued the helmet in 1911. It is unknown when the helmet became anomalous in nature, however it is believed it occurred some time after World War I based on the object's primary effect.

When wearing SCP-3933, the wearer will gradually experience a loss of awareness of their surroundings. After approximately 1-2 hours the wearer will visualize themselves inside of a trench line. After several minutes the wearer will completely assume the personality of █████ █████. At this point, no amount of physical force except removing the helmet from the wearer's head can break the wearer from the trance. The wearer will, at this point, undergo an intensely vivid and corporeal simulation of trench warfare. All dangers in the hallucination pose a significant and very real threat to the wearer. All physical trauma imposed on the wearer will be translated into damage within the trance (see Experiment Log #12). Furthermore, dangers within the trance pose a danger to surrounding areas to the wearer (see Experiment Log #14).

Due to the trance's location invariably being a series of never-changing trenches, the area is collectively designated SCP-3933-1. Based on testimonies from those who have used SCP-3933, the location of the trenches is assumed to be somewhere in southwest Belgium.


Addendum:

Recovery Log: On ██/██/████, the grandchild of SCP-3933's previous owner, █████ █████, relinquished SCP-3933 to Foundation personnel located in ██████, Germany. SCP-3933 was then promptly transferred over to Site-19.

Experiment Log #12: Under authorization from Dr. Ebert, one (1) D-Class personnel was sent into SCP-3933's chamber with an attached microphone. All movement of the D-Class was monitored via security camera. The D-Class personnel was to wear the helmet for four (4) hours. After four (4) hours another D-Class personnel was to go into the chamber and remove the helmet from the first D-Class personnel's head.

13:00: D-Class personnel is released into the chamber and puts on SCP-3933.
13:30: D-Class repeatedly complains about the boredom of the task.
14:00: The D-Class personnel begins to lose awareness of surroundings.
15:06: D-Class personnel reports via microphone that he is now in a claustrophobic series of trenches.
15:21: D-Class assumes the personality of █████ █████.
15:28: █████ █████ begins speaking to an "Adalbert Hertz" in German about the lack of food in the trenches, the conditions of the war and political beliefs before returning to a watch post.
15:49: █████ █████ alerts other soldiers about an incoming wave of gas before falling and gasping for air. Cameras show the eyes of the D-Class reddening and intense bouts of vomiting. Monitoring reveals that all vital signs have stopped after several minutes.
16:20: The body of the D-Class personnel is taken out of the chamber and an autopsy is performed confirming asphyxiation to be the cause of death.

Experiment Log #13: Authorization from Dr. Ebert was received for testing. Two (2) D-Class personnel, D-9763 and D-9782, were placed into SCP-3933's chamber wearing attached microphones. D-9782 was to wear one earplug to receive instructions from researchers. D-9763 was to put on SCP-3933 and D-9782 was to immediately take SCP-3933 off of D-9763 if instructed. D-9763 was to wear SCP-3933 for ten (10) hours.

12:00: D-9763 and D-9782 are released into SCP-3933's chamber. D-9763 puts on SCP-3933. Both D-Class personnel spend time getting to know each other.
13:11: D-9763 begins losing awareness of his surroundings. D-9782 attempts to keep him focused unsuccessfully.
14:07: D-9763 reports via microphone that he can only see a claustrophobic series of trenches. D-9782 makes attempts to communicate to D-9763, results are unsuccessful.
14:37: D-9763 assumes the personality of █████ █████. After several minutes, D-9782 is instructed via microphone to punch D-9763 in the arm as hard as possible. After being punched, D-9763 falls to the ground with his arm covered in blood and █████ █████ calls out to someone in pain. █████ █████ explains to what is assumed to be a doctor that he was shot in the arm while on watch.
15:56: █████ █████ begins screaming as a doctor begins amputating his arm shortly after the gunshot wound is determined to be so severe it cannot be healed naturally. D-9763's arm drops onto the floor before being bandaged almost immediately without intervention, presumably from doctors within the trance.
16:12: Test is terminated and D-9782 is instructed to take SCP-3933 off of him. D-9763 comes to after several minutes. D-9763 and D-9782 are taken out of SCP-3933's chamber. SCP-3933 is returned to its plexiglass chamber. D-9763 is terminated and D-9782 is returned to his room in the onsite D-Class dormitories.

Experiment Log #14: Authorization was received for further testing of SCP-3933. Two (2) D-Class personnel, D-79012 and D-79056, were placed in SCP-3933's chamber wearing attached microphones. D-79056 was to wear an earplug to receive instructions from researchers and D-79012 was to wear SCP-3933 for a total of eight (8) hours.

8:00: D-79012 and D-79056 are placed into SCP-3933's chamber. D-79012 puts on SCP-3933.
9:22: D-79012 loses awareness of her surroundings and stumbles around the chamber.
10:30: D-79012 reports via microphone that a series of claustrophobic trenches have materialized around her and that she is unable to see or communicate with D-79056.
10:45: D-79012 assumes the personality of █████ █████. D-79056 keeps watch on D-79012 from the corner of the room as per researcher's instructions.
11:23: █████ █████ is called to his regiment's commander and placed at the front of the trench line to keep watch.
13:41: █████ █████ shouts towards the trench lines about an incoming artillery bombardment. After several seconds, █████ █████ is struck with artillery. D-79012's body immediately explodes along with SCP-3933's chamber, D-79056, and two researchers viewing from an outside window. Shortly afterwards, security personnel are dispatched into the chamber to put out the fires and secure SCP-3933. SCP-3933 remained seemingly unharmed from the fire and explosion.

Note: Due to potential physical and mental danger that SCP-3933 poses to personnel, all further testing is, for the foreseeable future, denied. Use of SCP-3933 without explicit permission from me is strictly prohibited. The incidents that have occurred during testing (see Experiment Logs #13 and #14) show that SCP-3933 is inherently unpredictable and further testing could result in further loss of manpower and damage to facilities. -Dr. Ebert
As of 6/2/2011 testing of SCP-3933 is now permitted with permission. -Dr. Ebert.

Experiment Log #15: Authorization from Dr. Ebert was received for further testing on 6/7/2011. Two (2) D-Class personnel were to go into SCP-3933's chamber. The first D-Class, D-15321, was to wear SCP-3933 for a total of twenty-four (24) hours. D-13265 was to monitor D-15321 and remove SCP-3933 off of D-15321's head if the need arose. Microphones are earbuds were provided to the D-Class to monitor them.

6:30: D-15321 and D-13265 enter SCP-3933's chamber. D-15321 puts on SCP-3933.
9:00: D-15321 starts screaming and enters a state of distress at being unexpectedly pushed into SCP-3933-1.
9:34: D-15321 calms himself down before assuming the personality of █████ █████.
11:12: █████ █████ reports to his commander and talks briefly about the war.
11:28: █████ █████ eats before preparing to dig further trench lines. D-13265 reports that D-15321 is moving his arms and body in a shoveling motion and is sweating profusely.
14:22: After several hours of digging █████ █████ retains a watch over the trenches for the rest of the day with little distractions.
19:29: █████ █████ reports to his quarters and quickly falls asleep. D-13265 reports that D-15321 has fallen fast asleep.
6:33: On the following day, █████ █████ wakes up. D-13265 reports that D-15321 has woken up and has started screaming at her in German. Security personnel are called in and D-13265 is escorted back to her quarters. SCP-3933 is removed from D-15321's head but no change is made. It is determined that SCP-3933 has completely overwritten the personality and memories of D-15321 with that of █████ █████'s. D-15321/█████ █████ is designated as SCP-3933-2 and placed into containment in a three by three meter cell. It is determined that prolonged exposure to SCP-3933 results in total personality and memory replacement.

SCP-3933-2 is brought to an interview room to be talked to by Dr. Ebert due to lack of on-hand translators and Dr. Ebert's ability to speak fluent German. Transcript of the interview has been translated to English for convenience.

Dr. Ebert: Excuse me, 3933-2, do you know where you are?
SCP-3933-2: 3933-2? Damn it, my name is █████ █████! Of course I don't know where I am!
Dr. Ebert: Right, right… you are in Site-19 in [REDACTED]. Do you remember where you were before you arrived here?
SCP-3933-2: Where was I? What? I was in Belgium, you idiot! I was fighting for the Fatherland!
Dr. Ebert: 3933-2, what year do you recall fighting in?
SCP-3933-2: I- what? It's 1915! I should be fighting in the name of Germany to crush the French bastards! Let me the hell out of here!
Dr. Ebert: Shut up! 3933-2, it is 2011, you are not fighting a war, you were a test subject under Foundation custody testing SCP-3933, do you recall anything of the sort?
SCP-3933-2: [SCP-3933-2 begins uncontrollably sobbing] Take me home, damn it! Where's my family? Tell me, damn it!
Dr. Ebert: [Dr. Ebert leaves the interview room before ordering that SCP-3933-2 be taken back to containment.]

Dr. Ebert is chosen to interview SCP-3933-2 and make the initiative to get him comfortable being in a new time.

Dr. Ebert: SCP-3933-2, do you know what year it is?
SCP-3933-2: [SCP-3933-2 can be heard giving shaky breaths] I-It is 2011… exactly ninety-six years from when I last remembered…
Dr. Ebert: Are you aware of what has happened since then, 3933-2?
SCP-3933-2: [SCP-3933-2 begins crying] What happened! Let me guess, we won the war and my family's long dead and you buffoons have me locked up like I'm a wild animal! Let me go, let me leave!
Dr. Ebert: [Dr. Ebert calmly shuffles a stack of papers and passes them to SCP-3933-2.]
SCP-3933-2: What the… w-we lost the war? Please, sir, let me leave… I need to see my wife, please for the love of God… [SCP-3933-2 begins sobbing. Dr. Ebert leaves the room and SCP-3933-2 is brought back to containment.]

After giving SCP-3933-2 ample time to accustom themselves to their new environment after several failed attempts at interviewing, Dr. Ebert opens up attempts at another interview.

Dr. Ebert: SCP-3933-2, what is your name?
SCP-3933-2: My name? My name is █████ █████.
Dr. Ebert: Good. To your recollection, when were you born? Where were you born?
SCP-3933-2: I… I was born █/██/18██ in █████████, Germany.
Dr. Ebert: Now, 3933-2, where did you saw you were located prior to-
SCP-3933-2: What have you people done to me.
Dr. Ebert: 3933-2, we have done nothing to you.
SCP-3933-2: That's a God damned lie! In the war I… I was myself! Now I'm here and I don't even look like myself!
Dr. Ebert: This was explained to you, 3933-2.
SCP-3933-2: I'm starting to think I'll never be able to go back home-
Dr. Ebert: Shut up, 3933-2, are you willing to continue the interview or do you want to go back to containment?
SCP-3933-2: [SCP-3933-2 grumbles to themselves unintelligibly.]
Dr. Ebert: Very well. [Dr. Ebert calls in security personnel to return SCP-3933-2 to containment.]
