An illustration depicting the planned final phase of SCP-1078-JP, as shown in the seized internal documents.

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-1078-JP instances are to be contained under different procedures dependent on their generations.

SCP-1078-JP-01 instances are to be kept in a standard small organism containment chamber in the same condition as a normal centipede, and their population is to be adjusted appropriately to be around 10 instances.

SCP-1078-JP-02 instances are to be kept in a standard small organism containment chamber in the same condition as a normal centipede, and their population is to be adjusted appropriately to be around 10 instances; daily health checks should be performed as this type of instance lacks exoskeleton and is vulnerable to body surface damage.

SCP-1078-JP-03 is to be kept in a standard containment chamber in the same condition as a normal human infant.

SCP-1078-JP-04 is to be kept in a standard containment chamber in the same condition as a normal human infant; counseling should be provided twice a week to promote its development and communication.

Description: SCP-1078-JP is the collective designation for a group of abnormal organisms confiscated from ████████ Pharmaceuticals' research laboratory in ██████, █████ Prefecture. Despite the fact that DNA collected from all instances is over 98% identical to that of centipedes, SCP-1078-JP instances have organs similar to those of normal humans and completely mimic human physiological functions. These organisms are believed to have been artificially engineered; as each SCP-1078-JP instance has different features depending on its phase of development, they have been designated SCP-1078-JP-01 through SCP-1078-JP-04 in accordance with the phase.

SCP-1078-JP-01 is reportedly the latest generation of SCP-1078-JP instances. It resembles a giant centipede in appearance, approximately 50cm long, with an exoskeleton and jointed legs similar to those of centipedes. All human organs, including the brain, are present in its body in a shrunken and extended form. Due to its thick body, there are several gaps in the exoskeleton, and some internal organs can be observed from the outside. The brain capacity is small and is considered to have the same level of learning ability as a rat (Rattus norvegicus). Notably, despite having a nervous system similar to that of humans, all SCP-1078-JP-01 instances have developed a disease resembling congenital insensitivity, resulting in a loss of warmth and pain sensation throughout the body. Its mouth is devoid of teeth, tongue and vocal cords. Upon containment, over 100 instances of SCP-1078-JP-01 were alive.

SCP-1078-JP-02 is an anomalous organism from a generation before SCP-1078-JP-01. It is cylindrical in shape with skin, approximately 70cm long and 20cm in diameter, lacks an exoskeleton, and has 17 pairs of shortened fingers instead of jointed legs. All human organs, including the brain, are present in its body in a shrunken and extended form. The brain capacity is small and is considered to have the same level of learning ability as a rat (Rattus norvegicus). Similar to SCP-1078-JP-01, SCP-1078-JP-02 instances have developed a disease resembling congenital insensitivity, resulting in a loss of warmth and pain sensation throughout the body. Its mouth is devoid of vocal cords, although teeth and tongue are present. Upon containment, 20 instances of SCP-1078-JP-02 were alive.

SCP-1078-JP-03 is an anomalous organism from a generation before SCP-1078-JP-02. It is cylindrical in shape with skin, approximately 90cm long and 30cm in diameter, lacks an exoskeleton, and has an anomalously shrunken human head and 17 pairs of immature hands. All human organs are present in its body in a shrunken and extended form. The brain capacity is larger than SCP-1078-JP-02 and about the same size as that of a two-year-old human infant. Its nervous system is intact and is believed to have a full sense of warmth and pain. Its mouth is devoid of vocal cords, although teeth and tongue are present. Upon containment, only one sample instance of SCP-1078-JP-03 were alive.

SCP-1078-JP-04 is an anomalous organism from a generation before SCP-1078-JP-03. It is approximately 130cm tall, lacks an exoskeleton, and has a shrunken head and small limbs. All human organs are present in its body. The brain capacity is larger than SCP-1078-JP-03 and about the same size as that of a six-year-old human infant; it has a full sense of warmth and pain. Teeth, tongue and vocal cords are all present in its mouth. Based on these features, SCP-1078-JP-04 is believed to be a generation in which only its DNA sequence approximates that of centipedes. Upon containment, only one sample instance of SCP-1078-JP-04 were alive. SCP-1078-JP-04 can recognize its current situation to some extent; it referred to itself as "Sakuma Number Six" and vocalized "Help" when it was contained. Despite regular counseling has been conducted since shortly after the containment, SCP-1078-JP-04 has not vocalized anything other than "Sakuma Number Six" and "Help" to date.

According to the internal reports obtained during the raid, SCP-1078-JP was secretly developed and bred by ████████ Pharmaceuticals in order to enable pseudo-human experiments disguised as a different animal species, as well as to reduce the guilt and psychological burden of experimenters. The development goals of SCP-1078-JP, as interpreted from the seized documents, are summarized below.

  1. Retain its human body functions to enable biological experiments at the same level as human experiments.
  2. Eliminate its sympathetic elements such as voice, pain sensitivity, intelligence and physical appearance to reduce the experimenter's guilt and psychological burden.
  3. Make its DNA sequence and physical appearance similar to other existing organisms for disguise.

Attached records indicate that SCP-1078-JP-04 was not used in experiments due to insufficient reduction of guilt and psychological stress, but several cases of experimental use have been confirmed for SCP-1078-JP-03, the generation with its vocal cords removed. SCP-1078-JP-02 and SCP-1078-JP-01 are the generations based on SCP-1078-JP-03, which were further modified in appearance and stripped of pain perception and intelligence; it is known that the experimenters actively proposed positive opinions for experimental use of these generations.
