Special Containment Procedures: Due to SCP-143-PT's nature, its containment is done by preventing military personnel that occupied political positions during the Brazilian military regime between the 1970s and 1985 from crossing the President Costa e Silva Bridge, commonly known as the Rio-Niterói Bridge. Experiments involving SCP-143-PT must be authorized by a Level 4 researcher and, due to the anomalous nature of SCP-143-PT, must be initiated with the bridge closed to the public.

Mobile Task Force PT31-π — "Bridge Trolls" must constantly monitor individuals who meet the criteria to trigger an SCP-143-PT-2 event and who are within the cities of Rio de Janeiro or Niterói. If the individual in question is following a route that leads to the Rio-Niterói Bridge, MTF PT31-π must immediately begin efforts to divert their route out of the bridge, in case this is confirmed.

Description: SCP-143-PT is the designation given to the dimension analogous to the Rio-Niterói Bridge, defined as an apparently infinite bridge, with SCP-143-PT-2 being the phenomenon that occurs when military personnel who occupied political positions in the former Brazilian military government cross the Rio-Niterói Bridge. Most of the data obtained on SCP-143-PT was obtained by the former Brazilian Superintendence for the Paranormal and is included in this article.

An SCP-143-PT-2 event begins with a dense fog forming over the Rio-Niterói Bridge, with visibility dropping to just below 10 meters. The vehicle in which the individual who caused the event is located, as well as all vehicles within a radius of 40 meters from it, are transported to SCP-143-PT. From this moment on, the individual that caused the event is designated as SCP-143-PT-3 and will be target of SCP-143-PT-1 instances.

SCP-143-PT-1 instances are described by survivors as concrete statues of men who appear to be construction workers who worked on the bridge, in positions that convey agony. Individuals near SCP-143-PT-1 instances hear screams, cries and pleas for help, as well as a feeling of suffocation.

Initially, SCP-143-PT-1 instances won't look at the individual, however, given enough time, they will look back and immediately attack, only being able to move while someone looks at them, either by direct eye contact or via video, however the instance will always give priority to SCP-143-PT-3.

As long as an individual is not looking at a SCP-143-PT-1 instance, it will constantly ask them to look at them. If an individual is making eye contact with SCP-143-PT-1 and it is unable to reach them, the instance will eventually calm down and revert to screaming, crying and asking for help, unless the individual in question is SCP-143-PT-3.

SCP-143-PT-1 instances have been observed killing their victims in multiple ways, including but not limited to: making use of construction tools; strangulation; punching; among others.

Victims of SCP-143-PT describe it as a seemingly infinite bridge, the end of which is impossible to see due to a dense fog constantly obscuring the view. SBP researchers who tried to return the opposite way they were going when the SCP-143-PT event began allegedly traveled for days until SCP-143-PT-3's eventual death.

It is deduced that an SCP-143-PT-2 event is capable of selecting only one individual as SCP-143-PT-3 at a time, generally being the one who held the highest position in the military regime.

People killed by instances of SCP-143-PT-1 are transformed into instances of SCP-143-PT-4, which consists of a concrete statue that, when opened, reveals the individual's organs in a dormant state.

SCP-143-PT-2 events always occur from the █th support column of the bridge, the same one where the bodies of construction workers that were buried in concrete are located. Investigations are currently underway to determine if there is any correlation between these events and the dead workers.

Vehicles and other objects taken alongside victims of an SCP-143-PT-2 event must be considered effectively lost to SCP-143-PT, as they only materialize again on the Rio-Niterói Bridge if in contact with the individual when they are released from SCP-143-PT.

Attempts to escape from SCP-143-PT other than by the death of SCP-143-PT-3 proved futile in all experiments, with logged experiments in which teams traveled for multiple weeks or even months until the eventual death of SCP-143-PT-3 due to an SCP-143-PT-1 instance or other causes. Attempts to escape SCP-143-PT by water also prove futile, resulting in individuals ending up in a seemingly infinite ocean.

SCP-143-PT was discovered in 1974 by the SBP, 9 days before the bridge's public inauguration, when general █████ ████ disappeared along with a group of construction workers while crossing the bridge for unknown purposes. Search operations and investigations were immediately triggered, until another general once again disappeared on the bridge.

5 days after the general's disappearance, 3 of the workers who accompanied him were found alongside 4 concrete statues, one of them being the missing general; the SBP was immediately called and the workers questioned.

Experiments conducted by the SBP proved the anomalous nature of the bridge and political members of the Brazilian military regime were prevented from crossing the bridge without permission, including SBP operatives.

Initially, there were plans of Emílio Garrastazu Médici, 28th president of Brazil and third of the Brazilian military regime, crossing the bridge at its inauguration due to the scale and importance of the work. Fearing for the president's safety, the SBP prepared a suitable look-alike to take the president's place during the inauguration, as well as for other high-profile individuals who would be accompanying the president and who had a notable likelihood of triggering an SCP-143-PT-2 event.

As long as SCP-143-PT-3 is not killed, the remaining subjects will remain under the influence of SCP-143-PT.

Below is a risk list for each military government rank produced by the former SBP based on experiments. This data may not be accurate, given the low number of test subjects used in some of the experiments. Some test subjects were obtained by the SBP promoting people considered to be of lesser interest.
