Item #: SCP-008-PT

Object Class: Euclid

Threat Level: Orange

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-008-PT must be kept in a humanoid containment room measuring 5 x 5 x 3 meters with capacity for self-sterilization. SCP-008-PT is allowed to circulate on Site PT20 accompanied with at least one (1) Class-C personnel during break times; when employees interact with the entity, they must refer to it by the name they choose, its official name should be used only for bureaucratic purposes in official documents.

Non-electronic entertainment and other requests are the responsibility (currently) of Dr. Renata Oliveira. The object has a diet compatible with that of a conventional human being, 3 meals a day, although SCP-008-PT does not need nutrition, these are kept as a form of entertainment.

Tests with SCP-008-PT that involve physical trauma or tissue removal must be done with the current samples, any tests involving SCP-008-PT must be approved by Dr. Renata Oliveira and SCP-008-PT.

Update: Due to SCP-███-PT's containment breach events and the widespread escape of dozens of other entities, causing the destruction of its containment cell, SCP-008-PT is currently in a coma in the medical wing, in a room measuring 5 x 5 x 3 meters, air-conditioned at a temperature of 20ºC. The machinery and supplies needed for care related to the being are described in the documents SCP-008-PT/M04 "Morpheus".

Description: SCP-008-PT is, at first sight, a male human with 174 cm in height, pardo ethnicity, weighing approximately 87 kg, with a BMI of 29.4 and a physical size compatible with 20 years of age. The entity calls himself "Gustavo Magalhães Silva", claiming to be 19 years old and a native of the state of Minas Gerais, although he alleges the lack of memories about the place with precision.

The object has a stable temperament, although when it was contained it had a principle of Persistent Depressive Disorder (PDD), the condition got worst throughout the days of containment, culminating into a attempt of suicide by hanging. This event was the first instance in which SCP-008-PT's abilities were proven. Psychological treatment with a focus on artistic expressions resulted positively in the recovery of SCP-008-PT.

The entity has an extraordinary resistance against intoxication, alterations, resistance against cognitive/infectious effects above average, recovery from certainly lethal traumas such as: Removal of vital organs, rupture of the spine and the loss of 70% of its biomass. In all of these cases, SCP-008-PT has completely regenerated (without sequelae or instant consequences).

Tests and investigations have determined the source of this anomaly; SCP-008-PT's body systems were determined aware and capable of jointly deciding actions and plans to keep its body functioning in a process similar to Heuristic.

All biological systems are loyal to the goal of keeping SCP-008-PT alive. Attempts to subvert and influence organs or systems to desertion and/or to work anti-productively to the well-being of SCP-008-PT have proved unsuccessful, since the tissue sets place the collectivity above their own interests. These are able to communicate through undetermined means. They are able to survive for about ten (10) months outside of SCP-008-PT's body, in these circumstances, they are classified as SCP-008-PT-1 instances. These instances will develop the necessary means to contact SCP-008-PT as soon as possible. The list of mutations includes:

  • Development of sub-organs and locomotor capacity such as legs or displacement in accordion and serpentine;
  • Dissolution and fragmentation, used to pass through difficult access points;
  • Infection and kidnapping of organisms to increase its life before the eventual death of the organ and the use of the host as a means of locomotion.

Upon reconnecting SCP-008-PT, SCP-008-PT-1 will start the fragmentation process until its biomass can pass through the skin pores, re-housing within SCP-008-PT or being recycled if the organ has regenerated completely.

Experiment: Removal of SCP-008-PT's heart, inserted at a linear distance, without obstacles, of 200 meters in relation to SCP-008-PT.

Heart removed from SCP-008-PT and placed 200 meters from SCP-008-PT without any obstacles.

Result: The organ developed flagella with suction capacity and was able to crawl for 200 meters on dirty surfaces until it rehoused inside the chest cavity, the unhealthiness of the surface does not appear to have affected SCP-008-PT.

Experiment: Removal of SCP-008-PT's eyes, instances inserted separately within a set of labyrinths creating obstacles between the instances and SCP-008-PT.

Result: The organs failed to navigate the maze successfully. After meeting, they got together and used a substance of an acidic nature to melt the obstacles interposing the path to SCP-008-PT.

Experiment: Removal of SCP-008-PT's bowels, instances inserted separately within a set of labyrinths creating obstacles between the instances and SCP-008-PT.

Result: After merging, the intestines assumed a diameter of about 0.5 cm and branched through the labyrinth and in 20 seconds they came into contact with SCP-008-PT.

Experiment: Removal of SCP-008-PT's legs, instances inserted separately within a set of labyrinths with psychophysical obstacles of high degrees between the instances and SCP-008-PT.

Result: The instances merged and developed pseudopods ending in ductile structures. The amalgam developed a pair of functional eyes and navigated the maze, solving obstacles through trial and error processes.

Experiment: Surgical removal of SCP-008-PT's head, kept alive through equipments. SCP-008-PT's body was contained in a cell simulating the environment of a standard humanoid containment chamber, with twenty (20) Class-D personnel emulating containment agents (armed with anti-personnel shock equipment), ordered to stop any advances of SCP-008-PT.


The characteristics of the instance terminated after reconnection. No employees were terminated during the simulation.

The capacities of SCP-008-PT-1's instances are proportionally related to the total amount of mass in their bodies.
