The interior of SCP-125-DE-A.

Item #: SCP-125-DE

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-125-DE is not to be informed about it being contained. To ensure its continued cooperation with Foundation personell in the future, it is also let to believe that the customs and moral concepts in Europe are still those of the 12. century. Additionally, the entity is not to be coerced into raising and/or leaving SCP-125-DE-A. Should this occur regardless, it is to be lured into the area of effect of a Scranton Reality Anchor immediatly to reestablish containment.

Due to the immobility of SCP-125-DE and SCP-125-DE-A, Outpost-DE34/125 has been constructed in front of the entrance of SCP-125-DE-A. Outpost-DE34/125 is to always be staffed with at least 50 guards and to be equipped with gas and explosive weapons to defend against attacks on the site. Outpost-DE34/125 is to be contacted by othes Foundation sites using radio communication every 30 minutes and to be asked for its status. Should no answer be received from Outpost-DE34/125, a MTF unit is to be send to check on the situation and to prevent a potential takeover of the site by hostile forces.

Efforts are to be undertaken to ensure a healthy population of common ravens (Corvus corax) at least in the area of the Burgberg. Should SCP-125-DE inquire on the presence of ravens on the Burgberg, their presence is to always be affirmed.

For security reasons and to prevent the loss of valuable Foundation equipment, no Scranton Reality Anchors are allowed inside of SCP-125-DE-A.

Description: SCP-125-DE designates a humanoid entity, currently located in a big cavern beneath the Burgberg in the Kyffhäuser. This cavern is part of a cavern system, which is designated as SCP-125-DE-A due to its nature.

SCP-125-DE has the appearance of a man aged between 60 and 70 years. It wears a red gown and a golden hoop crown adorned with different gems and a crucifix. SCP-125-DE is 410 cm in height. Its weight could never be determined, but is estimated to be around 800 kg. SCP-125-DE sits on a throne that is apparently fully made of ivory and rests its head with his hands on a round marble table 8 meters in diameter. Of note besides its height is the hair of the entity, continously glowing with an orange-yellow light. SCP-125-DE has a beard that reaches through a hole in the table down to the ground and encircles the table ca. six and a half times. SCP-125-DE was until now never observed to take in sustenance, and is therefore believed to not require any.

Collected data suggests that SCP-125-DE is a class IV reality bending entity. However, it only used its powers to prevent itself from being harmed, relocated or further contained in some form since the Foundation started monitoring it and even while using its powers, SCP-125-DE only makes a minimum effort. Attackers simply get teleported away a few meters and/or disarmed and persons tasked with moving SCP-125-DE suddendly forget their task. Given SCP-125-DE's impaired environemental perception, it is assumed that this is an automated defense mechanism on which the entity exerts no direkt influence.

SCP-125-DE seems to be half asleep at all times and only reacts very slowly on its environement, if at all. It is still possible to hold conversations with it in every desired language, even if it takes very long for SCP-125-DE to formulate a response, which is often mumbled. It claims to be Frederick I, the Holy Roman Emperor (nicknamed "Barbarossa") and stated that it was imprisoned in SCP-125-DE-A. These claims could until now not conclusively verified or dismissed.

The entity sometimes asks present personell "if there are still ravens on the mountain". This question, until now, was always affirmed, causing SCP-125-DE to briefly sigh. At the moment, it is unknown if and how the presence of ravens on the Burgberg impacts SCP-125-DE, but the population of comon ravens in the Kyffhäuser and especially the Burgberg was put under observation as a precaution.

The the interior of SCP-125-DE-A is currently not fully explored because of its size and vast extend, the exploration is still being conducted. However, 567 lifesize granite statues of knights, soldiers and court servants were already discovered in the caves. Though, their relocation for further study was not possible due to narrow spaces in SCP-125-DE-A. The caves itself possess three anomalous properties. Firstly, it is not possible to enter SCP-125-DE using other ways than it entrance. During attempts to burrow into the cave system from outside, the excavation crews only hit solid rock which apparently fills out the entire space SCP-125-DE-A is supposed to occupy. Secondly, it is impossible to permanently damage SCP-125-DE-A, because every damage repairs itself within seconds. Thirdly, the mind of every human person in SCP-125-DE is affected in such a way that they are able to reach SCP-125-DE's cavern and the exit without getting lost. This third effect can be counteracted by actively fucusing on reaching a different goal.

SCP-125-DE-A appears to have been created by the abilities of SCP-125-DE and seems to only exist as long as it is maintained by the entity. This circumstance complicates the containment of SCP-125-DE, because it cannot be exposed to Scranton-Reality-Anchors like this. If such a device gets transported inside SCP-125-DE-A, it immediatly erases the space influenced by reality bending in its area of effect and is subsequently in an instant removed from objective reality, together with all matter in its area of effect. The lost space apparently gets replaced instantly afterwards.

Why SCP-125-DE claims to be imprisoned in a space created by itself is not known at this time. However, Dr. Stramm theorized that the entity is only entrapped in SCP-125-DE-A because it believes itself to be imprisoned and activates its reality bending capabilities as a consequence.

Discovery: The Foundation learned about SCP-125-DE on 01/02/2010, when Research Team 25 completed the restoration of several documents of Section XXV. Subsequently, a assessment team was dispatched to the stated location and enacted the first containment after locating the entrance to SCP-125-DE

Addendum 125-DE-1: On ██.██.████ Outpost-DE34/125 was attacked by 52 Entities with a strong resemblance to SCP-094-DE. Assets of the Foundation at the scene had only anticipated human aggressors and could consequently only stall the attackers. It turned out that explosive weapons were neccesary to fully neutralize the entities, because they remained able to act as long as they had at least one appendage remaining. MTF-DE6-𝔇 "Das Aufgebot" (i.e. "The Draft") was dispatched with appropriate equipment and, after 2 hours, could succesfully fend of the attack. All attackers were succesfully neutralized, the Foundation sustained 29 causalities and 33 wounded. During the analysis of the remains, it became apparent that all neutralized entities were marked with the logo of the Group of Interest Fourth Reich. After this incident the Special Containment Precedures were udated accordingly.

Addendum 125-DE-2: Since ██.██.████, the population of common ravens in the Kyffhäuser is subject to an increasing number of cases of parasite infection. Efforts are underway to maintain the population.
