Item #: SCP-124-DE


Object Class: Safe

Secure Containment Procedures: SCP-124-DE-1 is to be stored inside of a hat box alongside SCP-124-DE-2. Said hat box is to be contained under a shatterproof, glass display case, with a reinforced metal grid, found inside of Sector-C1 (Sector for anomalous objects), Site-DE20. SCP-124-DE-1 and SCP-124-DE-2 are stored separately in steel cartridges in Sector-C1 for anomalous objects in Site-DE20. The cartridges are secured in two separate containment lockers. The cartridges are equipped with a biometric scanner that is only set to the research personnel responsible for the objects. In addition, a GPS transmitter has been attached to SCP-124-DE-1 and SCP-0124-DE-2.

Since Incident Geist-2/4, every experiment including D-Class personnel must be carried out with said personnel carrying explosive collars. By default, SCP-124-DE-1 and SCP-124-DE-2 should be marked with water-soluble paint to identify the position of the test personnel, even when the SCP is active. In the event that one or more copies of SCP-124-DE are stolen, the containment protocol "Geisterjagd" ("Ghost hunt") is to be initiated.

After each test, SCP-124-DE is to be cleaned in an exclusive washing machine. The machine is located in a separate room equipped with an ID-card scanner. A cupboard with detergents and other washing utensils approved for SCP-124-DE is located next to said washing machine. SCP-124-DE is to be washed at 30°C, running the "fine" setting inside of the washing machine, using washing silk and an organic product by the brand "Sonett"1 used by the health food store. Subsequently, SCP-124-DE is to be dried in a tumble dryer on a drying rack located in the same room. A Foundation employee of level 2 or higher has to supervise said drying. If necessary, SCP-124-DE may be washed by hand with a soap based on organic matter.

Addendum from 20.06.2000: Since Incident 124-01-A, MTF DE20-ℜ (Rena "Seher") is to look for copies of SCP-124-DE and secure them. Founding employees must try to pollute and shoot at SCP-124-DE when encountering a hostile user. According to the current state of knowledge, SCP-124-DE will not be neutralized because of this, but this can overwhelm the user. If employees are unable to secure the new instance, the instance is to be destroyed2. In an emergency, the person in possession of the SCP may be injured and subsequently questioned. In the event that another copy of SCP-124-DE-1 appears, it will be recorded as SCP-124-DE-1-#. Clothing consisting of SCP-124-DE-A and not associated with SCP-124-DE-1 will be hereinafter referred to as SCP-124-DE-2-#.

Description: SCP-124-DE-1 designates an object similar to a hooded coat, whereas SCP-124-DE-2 designates an object looking more like a 19th century billowy hat. A label with the inscription "Prototype T1. Magistra Wunder" can be found inside of SCP-124-DE-1. The etiquette of SCP-124-DE-2 identifies it as a product of the company:" Ms Mirablis, Tapferes Schneiderlein GmbH3".

Both SCP-124-DE-1 and SCP-124-DE-2 consist of a previously unknown substance, here in the document referred to as SCP-124-DE-A, which externally resembles silk. Despite its dark colour, the fabric shimmers in the colour spectrum from red to purple. It is not clear if SCP-124-DE-A itself has anything to do with the anomalous abilities, but it is considered likely that the patterns incorporated into the fabric play an important role.

The anomalous effect is activated only when SCP-124-DE-1 or SCP-124-DE-2 are worn, which means that they have been correctly donned by a living being. The anomalous effect makes the wearer immediately invisible afterwards, with the clothes he/she is wearing at that moment. The same applies to objects that are fastened in pockets or on the body or on clothing4. It has been visually impossible to directly identify where the person is located. Experiments with imaging techniques, in this case, thermal imaging cameras and sonars, gave the following results:

  • Although thermal imaging cameras were able to recognize the area in which the carrier was located, only a "cloud" with a diameter of 4 m could be seen on the image, which barely stood out from the background.
  • While using sonar, there was a difficulty in evaluating the data, which is indicated by the fact that the position was only displayed with a delay.

Therefore, these methods are not applicable to field use. SCP-124-DE-1 and -2 make the wearer invisible but not physically disappear. By this fact, the presence of the "covered" can be recognized when they get wet or moves objects. The same applies if carriers and/or SCP-124-DE are contaminated in the active state. Interestingly, dirt becomes invisible to about 1 g/cm2 when it comes to SCP-124-DE in the "visible" state. If this value is exceeded, the dirt remains visible if it is not rejected by the SCP itself.

It also appears that the SCP-124-DE has the problem of becoming invisible5, in which it is supported by an antimemetic effect that acts on the observer. The observer thereby loses interest in the area occupied by SCP-124-DE's wearer. In addition, Dr. Faust has a theory that SCP-124-DE garments are additionally protected from damage such as tearing, cutting or scuffing by the sheath which produces the secondary effect. For further details, see Dr. Faust's Note to Experiment-124-DE/5 to see. SCP-124-DE attempts to explore, inter alia, the interplay of primary and secondary properties, or to copy it to eventually make it usable for field deployment, are supported. Currently, this is only compounded by the fact that no way has yet been found to extract samples from SCP-124-DE and the reaction of specimens to violence, see Testlog 124-DE/1.

Discovery: SCP-124-DE-1 came into the possession of the Foundation when agents Wolf and Fuchs discovered the anomalous object at auction in a pawn shop. Agents Wolf and Fuchs were alerted by the advertisement a week before to the event, with "fantastische und magische Relikte aus vergangenen Zeiten6". In the process, Agent Fuchs discovered SCP-124-DE-1 in a showcase with an envelope. She then asked the owner of the pawnshop for it was designated as the "Original Wizard's Cloak". She stated that around 1989, a young woman with a black curly hairstyle came with a parcel and traded it for bares. She allegedly said that she wanted to pick it up again, but since the saleswoman had been waiting for more than 5 years, she auctioned it, as she considered it a fashionable treasure. Agent Wolf and Fuchs bought SCP-124-DE-1, after one of the buyers tempted it and activated the anomalous effect. After the Foundation was activated and treated with A-Class-Amnestic presenters, the auction proceeded without further incident.

The letter enclosed in the envelope at SCP-124-DE-1 is addressed to the prospective buyer, in case the previous owner does not pick it up. In summary, the new owner should "carefully and conscientiously" deal with the coat, because it is a "unique". Similar to the label, a "watermark" not recognizable with the naked eye was added. The seal of the "Ministerium für Staatssicherheit7" and, in Roman spelling, the number 25 was not noticeably applied to the naked eye on the letter in the style of a watermark. Furthermore, it is pointed out that no attempt should be made to fathom the "specificity" of the garment because the "key to craftsmanship" of the author is missing. If you want to contact, you should search for "Wonder8". The exact wording can be requested in the archive under Document Letter-124. The analysis of the paper, ink, and writing showed that it was on a typewriter from the specified period, which stated the owner of the pawn shop. In addition, there were six Instants-Photographs in the envelope. They showed five persons, 2 women, and 3 men. The pictures show people doing everyday things, like drinking coffee and working in a kind of laboratory. None of them can be seen on all six, two even only on two. In addition to a date, two or three sentences were written, apparently commenting on the scene. However, all the slides have in common, that down in the corner "friends from work" had written. Rechercheteam 259 is currently evaluating the photographs to identify the individuals.


[Interview 124-DE-1/2 and 2/2 hidden because of triviality.]

The Foundation became aware of SCP-124-DE-2 when a report of ghostly apparitions appeared in several towns in the area around Lake Constance. The MTF-DE20-ℜ (Rena "Seher"16) was sent out as an anomaly similar to SCP-128 was suspected and was able to intern Sophie Maienberg, who was in possession of SCP-124-DE-2. She said that SCP-124-DE-2 was a gift from her ex-boyfriend, who wanted to be lenient with her after he left her. After noticing the anomalous nature of the "gift," she initially sought revenge. However, she later began committing minor thefts. The ex-boyfriend, Jannik Weckenbauer, was found within 8 days and questioned about the "magical" gift. According to him, he got it from a side-street store called "Zauberbedarf". After the interview, both were given standard amnestication of the B-class. Finding the store on the basis of Jannik Weckenbauer's description and the label did not lead to a fruitful result.


No experiments should be done with animals. Cross-testing with other SCPs may only be done if SCP-124-DE is worn by a Level 4 or higher expert.

Since the incident Geist-2/4 Dr. Lichtenfeldt no longer work with SCP-124-DE. She is under suspicion that she did not carry out an experiment with SCP-124-DE-1 carefully and that she managed to escape through her negligence D-4134-45. Thanks to the containment protocol "Geisterjagd", the SCP-124-DE instance could be backed up again and D-4134-45 terminated. It will be transferred to another research group and a procedure according to Founation Safety Ordinance Art. 9b "Duty of care when dealing with class D persons") will run against it.

[Experiment-124/2 to /4 hidden because of triviality.]

Experiments with SCP-124-DE have been allowed since Ghost-2/4 only with the consent of O4-8.
Signed O4-8, director of Site-DE20

Supplement from 20.06.2000: There are indications that there are more copies of SCP-124-DE-2. It is estimated by recent events that this hardly exceeds a quantity of five.
