Item #: SCP-013-PT

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-013-PT is to be contained in a 6*6*4 m underground room, structured to avoid radiation leakage; and outside 10 cm of lead wrapped in a Faraday cage. 5cm of ferrite magnets line the interior, with the main wall made of 20cm thick brick. A 10cm thick layer of lead will line the outside, completely surrounded by a faraday cage.

The roof is made of highly resistant fiberglass with small openings for ventilation, material and food insertion as well as removal of SCP-013-PT-2. Samba music is to be played in the chamber constantly through speakers shielded against magnetic interference. If any of the aforementioned components break, maintenance teams are to enter via a hatch, preferrably when SCP-013-PT rests or not wearing gas masks and hazamat suits to avoid disturbing SCP-013-PT.

SCP-013-PT is to have access to writing papers and utensils. No electronic devices, including pacemakers, are allowed in the containment chamber.

Description: SCP-013-PT is a human male, 1.75 meters tall and approximately 75 kg, with an extensive presence of electronic prosthetics throughout his body (modifications listed in document 013-A). The material of these implants varies between metallic, ceramic and biomechanical.

SCP-013-PT’s skin has several scars and scorched emblems in a shape similar to a triangle. It breathes normally and consumes 200 kcal and 500 ml water without any excretion.

SCP-013-PT constantly emits τ rays, an unprecedented form of radiation that confuses the temporal perception of humans, and corrupts electronic data (particularly linked to date and time), with emission related to SCP-013-PT’s emotional state. During SCP-013-PT's time at the Foundation, it has demonstrated that it can teleport. Due to the difficulty of re-containment, testing of this ability has been discontinued.

SCP-013-PT is fluent in Portuguese and has demonstrated some comprehension of other languages, but its speech patterns are incoherent, with disconnected phrases.

SCP-013-PT often writes musical compositions, referred to hereafter as SCP-013-PT-2. The songs, referred to as SCP-013-PT-2, usually contain historical facts told in a confusing and often anachronistic manner, usually featuring people from unrelated locations and time periods. As said texts occasionally aid in the discovery of anomalies, sambas are played to inspire SCP-013-PT to continue composing.

Foundation discovered SCP-013-PT in 2013, noticing signs of unusual radiation coming from an office building in █████ ██████, ██████████. Following an incursion by the Foundation, SCP-013-PT was found in a closet on the fourth floor, who was then sedated and brought to the extraction vehicle. While the van was on the way to Site-██, the accumulated τ radiation affected the containment team and the equipment, who eventually realized they had gone off-course by ███ km.

When SCP-013-PT woke up, it panicked by the appearance of the agents, most of whom had protective suits and oxygen masks, and disappeared. The τ radiation signature was only rediscovered two years later in Berlin, Germany; the Foundation was able to affix a tracking device to SCP-013-PT prior to its disappearance. The tracking data appeared sporadically in many worldwide locations, but Foundation agents tracked it to the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, and the country's branch of the Foundation quickly contained SCP-013-PT. The tracker was not with SCP-013-PT, and new data transmissions of this artifact are still being received.

Addendum: Searches in various databases indicate that SCP-013-PT may have been █████████ █████ █████, also known as ██████ █████, of ████████, a samba musician arrested in 1966 for disturbing the peace at the ███ █████ ██ train station (now known as ██████ ██ ██████). Subject was sent to a sanitarium in ██████████, and was later reported missing in 1968, leaving behind a shattered bed and ashes on the bedroom floor. An attempt to speak to SCP-013-PT asking if he recognized the name █████████ █████ █████ and its history resulted in the SCP entering a catatonic state and issuing large amounts of τ radiation, which affected all machinery and personnel within a radius of 5 meters before sedatives were administered. New contact attempts are vetoed until further notice.
