Item #: SCP-089-DE

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-089-DE is currently uncontained. Therefore, all media are to be checked for reports regarding the emergence of "Robots". Should an emergence be detected, MTF-DE2-𝕴 ("Lichterkette", eng. "Chain of Lights") is to be dispatched to investigate the incident. The usage of heavy weapons and EMPs is authorized, if the presence of SCP-089-DE and/or machines influenced by it is confirmed.

If SCP-089-DE and/or the subjects affected by it are captured, they are to be kept away from any and all machines under all circumstances and should only be transported if they are completely restrained and located in an appropriate transport unit for mechanical anomalies.

Site-DE17 has prepared a containment chamber for SCP-089-DE. SCP-089-DE has to be immediatly transported to said containment cell if it has been captured.

Because of the great differences between machines transformed by SCP-089-DE and the unclear allocation, captured subjects are to be given separate SCP classifications.

Description: SCP-089-DE designates a humanoid robot with a height of aprox. 170 cm, that apparently is known by the name of "Hod". SCP-089-DE possesses a face, a throat, an upper Torso, forearms and hands, that seem to be modeled after an adult female. The rest of the body cannot be seen, because SCP-089-DE always wears a wide, black dress with bright, pink velvet overhangs, black knee boots and a wig with white, curly hair. The analysis of video recordings, which show the clothing damaged, suggests that the lower torso, the upper arms and the legs have no covering like the visible part of the body. Also noticeable is the black butterfly mask that SCP-089-DE wears on its face.

SCP-089-DE could until now not be contained, but encountered the Foundation nonetheless multiple times. In those encounters, SCP-089-DE has displayed great intellectual abilities and apparently no need for a power source. The object is capable of perceiving it's surroundings visually, aurally and haptically. It has a female voice with an undertone that as been described as a "robotic buzz" by personnel. Not much is known about the objects measure of physical strength, but there have been cases where it has thrown fully armored MTF-Units up to 4 m with one hand. However, it's machinery has proven to be very delicate, with pistol shots and in some cases even punches being enough to cause visible damage. It is, however, fast and agile, thanks to its low mass, and is able to dodge most attacks. It has been observed that SCP-089-DE reached a speed of 60 km/h in full sprint. EMP-Weapons have seemingly no effect on SCP-089-DE.

SCP-089-DE can exert an anomalous effect on any machine, provided it has physical contact with the target for 15 seconds. In this regard, it seems irrelevant if the contact is blocked by it's clothing or where it touches the machine in question. Objects affected by SCP-089-DE's effect can no longer be controlled and begin to moving autonomously. In 97,7% of the observed cases, the influenced machines also change their appearance and transform into either a humanoid or an animal form. In this process, no mass seems to be lost or gained, and there appears to be no change in any material. Should the machine be affixed to an anchoring, it will remove itself from it, except if the anchoring is connected to another machine or a chassis. Those will then be integrated into the transformation process.

Machines changed by SCP-089-DE own a human-like intelligence, can perceive their surroundings visually, aurally and are capable of verbal communication. Like SCP-089-DE itself, these devices seem to no longer need a power source, but their mechanical parts are still subject to normal wear and tear, and need to be replaced, if necessary. They appear to view SCP-089-DE as a person of authority, since they comply to any of its orders, but it has been observed, that different machines interpret the same order differently, which leads to the conclusion that they posses a certain degree of autonomy. Depending on what the machine was originally designed for, it possesses various resistances and weaknesses to different weapons and environmental influences. It should be noted, however, that they can in all cases be only temporarily "knocked out" by EMP weapons, if they aren't protected against them or constructed entirely analogously.

Another characteristic of machines transformed by SCP-089-DE is their ability to bestow other machines with the properties they possess themselves. Under normal circumstances, this is achieved by integration of their machine parts into the target, however, other methods have been observed (for example see SCP-███-DE). Machines, that become animated via this method, were never observed to change their form and seem incapable of passing on their properties.

SCP-089-DE and the machines animated via it's effects are apparently part of the Group of Interest "Caecus Carneliana-collektive". They try not to harm normal humans directly, however, during their actions and fights against the Foundation and other groups they view as enemies, civilians were indirectly harmed or killed. Up until now, SCP-089-DE could not be apprehended by the Foundation, since it always moves with at least three transformed combat machines, from which at least one is immune to EMP weapons. Furthermore, it is unknown, how SCP-089-DE repairs damages sustained in battle.

SCP-089-DE first appeared during Incident DE/B33. For a long time, the Foundation could only gather information regarding this SCP via observation, until Research Team 25 partially restored the documentation of the "Athena Project", which had been carried out by Section XXV. The documents describe an anomaly, which possesses properties comparable to the ones SCP-089-DE possesses. It is hypothesized, that those two are the same entity.
