Item #: SCP-137-DE

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: To date, no method is prominent in successfully containing SCP-137-DE, and it is to be assumed the foundation is unable to develop one. In order to predict its course, SCP-137-DE is to be monitored via satellites during winter. All meteorological data of the alps are to be edited so that the eccentric behavior of SCP-137-DE does not become apparent, with its influence upon areas inhabited by humans explained as regular snow storms, including the use of amnestica if the need arises. The same applies to avalanches and other natural disasters caused by the anomaly.

The resting place elected by SCP-137-DE is to be banned from civilian scientific investigations, until activtity resumes. Additionally, when SCP-137-DE's awakening is imminent, entry to said places is to be be permitted as a whole.

The foundation currently supports protective programs for sustaining the nature in the alps, as a means of satisfying SCP-137-DE.

Description: SCP-137-DE is a construct of ice luminescent from within that resembles the form of a bird of prey that can not be assigned to a known species. SCP-137-DE possesses a wing span of around 500 meters, a sum length of 200 meters excluding its 100 meter long tail feathers, and a weight of approximately 50.000 tones.

Despite the fact its body texture would render it incapable of flight, SCP-137-DE can fly like a regular bird, reaching heights of up to 20.000 meters. Furthermore, the material it consists of somehow allows for avian movements. Regardless of its location, it also produces a severe snow storm with a diameter of around 10 km around itself during its active phase, obscuring its body, which highly simplifies the suppression of knowledge around the anomaly's existence. Furthermore, data retrieved from the GOC conclude that it cooles down the air around it to -20 °C, thereby allowing flight even during intensive sun light without melting.

SCP-137-DE was initially sighted in 2013 and has so far only moved in the alps or their environment. The entity is solely active during winter, and spends the other months atop the peaks of high mountains or glaciers, on which it lets its own snowstorm to bury it in snow at the beginning of its resting phase. If SCP-137-DE needs nutrition, oxygen, or sleep is currently unknown.

Although SCP-137-DE is usually present in great heights, there are times where it flies close to the ground. In doing so, its snow storm causes snow chaos and economic damages when flying above populated places, such as cites or villages. It is capable of cutting off whole valleys from the rest of the world through its created snow masses.


Aftermath of an overflight by SCP-137-DE.

It is possible to provoke the anomaly via excessive destruction of the Alps's natural regions, even if this occurred during its resting phase. In such cases, it will move to the affected area during its active period and attack surrounding human villages by creating blizzards and severe hail while causing avalanches through systematic snow fall that can completely bury villages under themselves. In some unconfirmed cases, the anomaly would deliberately fall onto humans directly related to the environmental destruction. But such attacks are, hitherto, only known through witnesses reports and have never been documented.

Incident 137-DE-GOC-1: On the 28th February 2018, the Global Occult Coalition, independent of the foundation, launched a termination attempt on SCP-137-DE, according to gathered data as both the number of casualties as well as the sum of caused economic damages had become too massive. The attempt involved the utilization of five Type Eurofighter Typhoon jets with ammunition that generate intensive heat. In addition, the machines were modified for flights inside SCP-137-DE's snow storm. The mission was tracked using cameras and microphones on the outer shell and recordings from the GOC.

Incident 137-DE-2: On the 5th of February 2019, tourists at the frozen Black Lake in Canton of Fribourg, Switzerland observed how the ice layer broke open through a suddenly oncoming snow storm, whereafter SCP-137-DE flew out of the sea, fully recovered. The entity later caused heavy snowfalls in Tyrol and South Tyrol, blocked the Brenner motorway, and made several valleys inaccessible for a few days. Witnesses were amnestitized, with videos posted to the internet being portrayed as hoax and censored due to the poor quality. Immediately following this event, the GOC requested assistance by the foundation, sending them all data they have gathered about the entity for this purpose. When analyzing the data, it was revealed that the interference SCP-137-DE causes in akiva detectors is similar to a phenomenon different artifacts by the Mages Academy caused during the same research method.

Document 137-DE-1: The following document is part of a phone call co-recorded by the GOC that is dated 2th of January 2013. Participants of the conversation could not be identified in time, however, as the corresponding data was lost in a fire two days later. The GOC theorizes sabotage.
