Special Containment Procedures: Although the whereabouts of SCP-ES-266 are currently unknown, it's believed that it could be found near the Gulf of Mexico. There does not exist a viable containment for SCP-ES-266, and given its qualities, a termination protocol has been established for when it's located, which is shown below:

  • The SCPS Fulmarus, tripulated by the MTF Phi-48 ("Ballestas Yubarta"), will be sent to the location of SCP-ES-266 as soon as possible, backed up by the SCPS Typus and Baula.
  • If SCP-ES-266 is found in a crowded zone, an attempt will be made to move it to a secluded area by means of metal nets and/or human-like decoys to continue with the normal protocol. The use of Class D personnel in the event the decoys fail to attract SCP-ES-266 is authorized.
  • A recreation of the partial neutralization process executed by the GOC will be attempted (For more information consult Annex 226-1) with the purpose of reducing possible threats. In the event of failure, the next part of the protocol will be carried out.
  • SCP-ES-266 will be dismembered using a HEL1, which will be found in the equipment of Fulmarus.
  • The severed remains of SCP-ES-266 will be collected by Fulmarus. In the event of said SCPS being unable to collect them, authorization will be granted to Typus or Baula to carry out this task.
  • Once this is done, a backing SCPS will search the nearby area for SCP-ES-266-A instances. If they are found, all the instances will be collected, and together with SCP-ES-266 remains, will be transported to Site-53 for post analysis and storage.

Description: SCP-ES-266 resembles a Cyanea capillata2 specimen of ~32m of length, whose umbrella resembles a human skull in appearance and consistency.

SCP-ES-266 presumably feeds off of human skeletons, which it obtains through the rapid extension of its tentacles with the purpose of delivering electric shocks and/or neurotoxins. Once this is done, it will take the flesh off said individuals and will use it to form decomposing fleshy masses similar to eggs (designated SCP-ES-266-A) of varying sizes, from which jellyfish will emerge (designated SCP-ES-266-B).

SCP-ES-266-A instances produce an estimated 10 instances of SCP-ES-266-B a day, which has a bluish color with purple tones, as well as spots similar in shape to human bones (such as tibiae, ribs, and femurs).

Once SCP-ES-266-B instances emerge from SCP-ES-266-A, they will wander the oceans with the aim of locating dead bodies submerged in the waters, to be subsequently revived by SCP-ES-266-B's own instances, which will expire after performing this process. It should be noted that this process can also be carried out by SCP-ES-266.

Once SCP-ES-266 has created instances of SCP-ES-266-A, it will enter a dormant state from which, according to reports provided by the Global Occult Coalition (For more information see Annex 226-1), it will only emerge within a year.
