Item #: SCP-2403-JP

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-2403-JP is uncontained. Currently, a footage analysis team is assigned to investigate and track down SCP-2403-JP. Once the footage analysis team informs of SCP-2403-JP discovery, field agents are to be dispatched to the location immediately and SCP-2403-JP Exclusion Protocol is to be executed. Any organisms retrieved from SCP-2403-JP are allowed to terminate immediately.

Description: SCP-2403-JP is a humanoid entity resembling a Turkic1 Caucasian male aged in 50-60s, which irregularly manifests in various locations throughout the world. Upon its manifestation, SCP-2403-JP always possesses a large amount of creatures, plant seeds or seedlings that are not native to the target area, and attempts to release or disperse them into said area. The organisms released by SCP-2403-JP adapt to the environment of the target area, and invariably establish their presence there unless human intervention is made.

Due to the aforementioned properties, SCP-2403-JP's activities, if left unaddressed, can result in catastrophic negative impacts on local ecosystems. Among the "100 of the World's Worst Invasive Alien Species" listed by the IUCN2, cane toad (Bufo marinus), fire ant (Solenopsis invicta), brown trout (Salmo trutta) and giant African land snail (Achatina fulica) are considered highly likely to have been introduced to some areas by SCP-2403-JP — information leakage to the general public has been prevented by disseminating suitable cover stories. While the oldest record of SCP-2403-JP manifestation known to the Foundation is from Kojimachi Ward, Tokyo in 1891, sightings of an individual suspected to be SCP-2403-JP have been documented in West Germany in the 17th century, in southern India in the 11th century, and in Cyprus Island on the Mediterranean Sea in B.C.; it has been pointed out that some of the species currently considered native to these areas may have been imported by SCP-2403-JP.

SCP-2403-JP is highly resistant to injury, but exhibits a certain degree of avoidance to firearms and similar forms of assault. It has also not been observed to attempt to directly harm the Foundation personnel to date. The organisms carried by SCP-2403-JP have no anomalous properties and can be terminated through normal methods. Therefore, field agents who encounter SCP-2403-JP are recommended to perform the termination procedure by limiting the targets to the organisms SCP-2403-JP possesses. Participants in anti-SCP-2403-JP operations are obligated to carry weapons that are capable of dealing with insects and microorganisms.

Communication attempts with SCP-2403-JP remain unsuccessful. Although SCP-2403-JP occasionally speaks to the Foundation personnel and civilians, the language spoken by SCP-2403-JP does not match any languages spoken in the modern age. The Foundation linguistics team is currently working on a project to analyze the language spoken by SCP-2403-JP. Personnel tasked with anti-SCP-2403-JP operations are advised to carry audio recording equipment whenever possible, and to record any speech made by SCP-2403-JP. The analysis team was disbanded. Recording of SCP-2403-JP's speech is prohibited.
