First encountered instance of E-10976, prior to neutralization

Item #: E-10976 (SCP Numerical Designation Pending)

Object Class: Euclid Neutralized Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: E-10976 has been neutralized; further containment procedures unnecessary. Further instances of E-10976 are to be neutralized by any means necessary.

For previous containment protocols, see Addendum 1.

Description: E-10976 was a stone statue of an anthropomorphized Scalopus aquaticus standing on a pile of earth holding a shovel. A Prometheus Labs, Inc. logo was printed on the underside of the statue.

E-10976 was able to teleport by methods unknown. Though teleportation of distances up to one kilometer were observed, 98.7% of recorded “jumps” fell within a normalized distribution of ten meters (with a two meter standard deviation). Jumps occurred at apparently random intervals, but never more frequently than once per thirty minutes.

If/when E-10976 was dealt major physical damage which would otherwise destroy a similar statue, it would immediately reappear elsewhere fully repaired. For details on destruction attempts, see Addendum 2.

E-10976 appeared at Site 11 on ██/██/1979. After repeated attempts to transfer the statue to alternate locations failed and the object repeatedly appeared in sensitive areas containing classified documents, it was deemed a probable surveillance device and approved for destruction on ██/██/1980.

Attempts at neutralization, performed at Site 11’s Secure Annex, were hampered both by E-10976’s repeated attempts to return to Site 11 and its capacity for self-repair.

E-10976 was finally neutralized on ██/██/1987.

Addendum 1: Former Provisional Containment Protocols For E-10976

Protocols: E-10976 is to be kept in a standard Euclid-rated containment safe with sufficient interior volume to hold it.
Outcome: Procedures deemed insufficient after E-10976 simply teleported to sit on top of the safe.

Protocols: E-10976 is to be kept within a custom containment safe created with the "Very Fine" setting of SCP-914.
Outcome: Procedures deemed insufficient after E-10976 simply teleported to sit on top of the safe.

Protocols: E-10976 is to be kept in the center of a standard containment room no smaller than thirteen (13) meters wide by thirteen (13) meters long. Constant video surveillance is to be maintained. Should E-10976 teleport, it is to be replaced at the center of the room.
Outcome: Procedures deemed insufficient following a 987 meter teleportation jump in the direction of Site 11.

Addendum 2: Record of Neutralization Attempts For E-10976
Due to a combination of E-10976's teleportation capabilities (making transfer to other locations difficult), and the security risk of showing E-10976 containment protocols of other SCPs, Foundation Counterintelligence requested neutralization attempts utilizing other SCPs be kept to an absolute minimum.

Attempt: Impact with 9.1 kg sledgehammer.
Result: E-10976 shattered. Object teleports to eight meters away with no apparent damage.

Attempt: Immersion in sulfuric acid.
Result: E-10976 dissolved. Object teleports to ten meters away with no apparent damage.

Attempt: Immersion in concentrated chlorine trifluoride.
Result: E-10976 apparently destroyed. Object teleports to eleven meters away with no apparent damage.

Attempt: Shot with shotgun.
Result: E-10976 shattered. Object teleports to ten meters away with no apparent damage.

Attempt: Shot with anti-materiel rifle.
Result: E-10976 shattered. Object teleports to ten meters away with no apparent damage.

Attempt: Detonation of 2000 kg high explosive charge.
Result: E-10976 obliterated. Object teleports to fifty meters away with no apparent damage.

Attempt: Bombarded with gamma radiation.
Result: E-10976 displays no observable change. After two minutes of exposure, object teleports to twelve meters away with no apparent damage.

Attempt: Fed to SCP-682.
Result: E-10976 fails to reappear; deemed neutralized.
Notes: We don't know if simply feeding this to 682 was actually what destroyed the thing, or if it was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back. For that matter, we don't even know if this thing is actually destroyed - it might be taking detailed pictures of 682's innards. - Dr. ██████, E-10976 Neutralization Team Leader

Addendum 3: Intelligence Report ██/██/1988
Documents provided by ████████████████ following his defection to the Foundation from the 13th Chief Directorate of the KGB indicate that organization was responsible for the creation of E-10976. These documents and testimony by ████████████████ confirm the KGB utilized E-10976 to conduct covert surveillance against the Foundation. Additionally, it appears at least 49 other identical copies of E-10976 are known to have been produced; the KGB maintains capacity for mass production thereof. No other instances have been recovered, and no information is available on the possible targets of E-10976 surveillance.

Addendum 4: Intelligence Report ██/██/1992
Following the breakup of the Soviet Union and the disbandment of the KGB, the Foundation has only accounted for only three other instances of E-10976. Intelligence suggests the remaining instances are in the possession of the GRU and Chaos Insurgency.
