Description: SCP-ES-226 is a ritual whose performance allows an entity or group, conceptual or otherwise, to achieve the status of divinity. The sequence of steps to perform SCP-ES-226 varies according to the predominant culture in the area where it is practiced, but it follows the following patterns:

  • The entity or group must be imposed a culture that is contrary to their own.
  • The entity or group must engage in a war against the predominant culture.
  • The entity or group must perform acts of bloodshed against the predominant party. Although not specified, it is believed that a greater amount of bloodshed ensures a higher prevalence of SCP-ES-226.
  • The entity or group must worship solar or luminous elements.

The successful performance of the ritual associated with SCP-ES-226 will result in the death of its participants, producing a burst of Akiva radiation that will cover the territory controlled by the predominant culture.

It was believed that the entity or group would also trigger a CK-Class Restructuring Event. However, further studies have concluded that this is a non-anomalous integration, consistent with baseline history.

The events caused by SCP-ES-226 that are considered true are listed below.
