ASP-173 in containment

Item #: ASP-173

Object Class: Euclid

Anomaly Secure Protocol: ASP-173 is to be contained in a closed cell. ASP-173's cell may not be entered using the normal entrance, but only using a hatch in the ceiling. A extendable ladder has been installed in said hatch for this reason. Only MFU-D androids may enter the cell. The main entrance may only be opened if the object is about to be moved and must be guided into a transport unit.

Description: ASP-173 was moved to Site-19 in 1993. The origin is unknown. It is constructed from concrete and rebar with traces of Krylon brand spray paint. ASP-173 is capable of extremly fast movement and is extremly hostile towards lifeforms. However, the object cannot move as long as it is in the direct line of sight of a higher organism. The object kills by snapping the neck at the base of the skull, or by strangulation. Androids and other machines are ignored by ASP-173, but it collides occasionally with them if it moves, normally resulting in the destruction of the unit in question. For these reasons, the main entrance of ASP-173's cell may not be opened, since it then tries to flee immediatly. In the event of an intentional attack, personnel are to observe Class 4 hazardous object containment procedures.

Personnel reports sounds of scraping stone originating from within the container when no one is present inside. This is considered normal, and any change in this behaviour should be reported to the acting HMCL supervisor on duty.

The reddish brown substance on the floor is a combination of feces and blood. Origin of these materials is unknown. The enclosure must be cleaned on a bi-weekly basis.
