Item #: SCP-096

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-096 breached containment on ██/██/████, and thus no containment procedures are necessary.

Acquisition team Zulu-9-C is currently tracking SCP-096 across the Canadian border. So far, approximately twenty-three (23) fatalities have been confirmed to have been caused by SCP-096.

Description: SCP-096 is a humanoid creature measuring approximately 2.38 meters in height. Subject shows very little muscle mass, with preliminary analysis of body mass suggesting mild malnutrition. Arms are grossly out of proportion with the rest of the subject's body, with an approximate length of 1.5 meters each. Skin is mostly devoid of pigmentation, with no sign of any body hair.

SCP-096's jaw can open to four (4) times the norm of an average human. Other facial features remain similar to an average human, with the exception of the eyes, which are also devoid of pigmentation. SCP-096 has been confirmed as blind. It shows no signs of any higher brain functions, and is not considered to be sapient1.

SCP-096 is normally extremely docile, however, when someone views SCP-096's face, whether it be directly, via video recording, or even a photograph, it will enter a stage of considerable emotional distress. SCP-096 will cover its face with its hands and begin screaming, crying, and babbling incoherently. Approximately one (1) to two (2) minutes after the first viewing, SCP-096 will begin running to the person who viewed its face (who will from this point on be referred to as SCP-096-1).

Documented speeds have varied from thirty-five (35) km/h to ███ km/h, and seems to depend on distance from SCP-096-1. At this point, no known material or method can impede SCP-096's progress. The actual position of SCP-096-1 does not seem to affect SCP-096's response; it seems to have an innate sense of SCP-096-1's location.

Note: This reaction does not occur when viewing artistic depictions (see Archived Foundation Report-096-1).

Upon arriving at SCP-096-1's location, SCP-096 will proceed to kill and [DATA EXPUNGED] SCP-096-1. 100% of cases have left no traces of SCP-096-1. SCP-096 will then sit down for several minutes before regaining its composure and becoming docile once again. It will then attempt to make its way back to its natural habitat, [DATA REDACTED].

Attempted termination of SCP-096 resulted in catastrophic loss of human life. See Archived Foundation Report-096-1-A for details on SCP-096's potential.
