Item #: SCP-2581-JP

Object Class: Euclid


An image posted by SCP-2581-JP on a social networking service. The background is distorted due to the anomalous property of SCP-2581-JP.

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-2581-JP is to be contained in a standard humanoid containment cell. The status of SCP-2581-JP is to be monitored through direct observation, since its anomalous properties manifest when surveillance cameras and other imaging equipment are used.

Description: SCP-2581-JP is a 23-year-old Japanese female1. When any equipment is used to capture SCP-2581-JP as the main subject, a Class I equivalent spatial distortion is generated between SCP-2581-JP and the imaging equipment in a manner that reduces the head area of SCP-2581-JP's image.

This spatial distortion distorts the air and partially changes the refractive index of light, resulting in the head area of the image output from the equipment being reduced by approximately 10 to 25 % compared to that of actual SCP-2581-JP. As the spatial distortion constantly fluctuates depending on the angle and expression of SCP-2581-JP, it is impractical to remove the anomalous modification by editing the output image.

Circumstances of Discovery: At the time of its discovery, SCP-2581-JP was using Instagram's live-streaming feature to post selfies of itself. The live-streamed video, which appeared to be constantly and automatically modified due to the anomalous properties of SCP-2581-JP, became a hot topic online and were detected by a Foundation web crawler. Since the images streamed by SCP-2581-JP had been widely spread on the Internet, the cover story "Application Advertising" was applied after SCP-2581-JP was secured, and the post-incident cleanup was entrusted to a Foundation front company.

SCP-2581-JP is fully aware of its own anomalous nature, and claims that it had intentionally exploited the anomaly in live-streaming and posting its images on social networking services, although it has no control over the phenomenon.

Addendum: In response to SCP-2581-JP's continuous claims of nausea and other physical discomforts, a medical examination was conducted. The results are as follows.
