3/4639 LEVEL 3/4639
CLASSIFIED

Item #: SCP-4639
Euclid

Special Containment Procedures

SCP-4639 is held within Botanical Containment Chamber-18 at Site-51. The chamber is to maintain a humidity of 86 percent and a temperature of 2.7 °C. If any SCP-4639 materials reanimate while in containment the temperature will be reduced to -6.66 °C, at which time all previously animated instances are to be collected and stored within Euclid Containment Freezer-6. To reduce staff exposure and possible cross-contamination, maintenance of SCP-4639 has been automated.

Embedded agents within the Florida Department of Citrus are to monitor for uncontained instances of SCP-4639 and SCP-4639-A. When a new SCP-4639 instance is located, Mobile Task Force Delta-50 ("Damned Druids")1 will be dispatched to facilitate Neutralization Protocol 55-RT ("Salted-Earth").

All civilians infected by SCP-4639-A instances are to have them surgically removed before being administered Class-A amnestics, and will remain under medical supervision for 24 hours. Any fully formed SCP-4639-A iterations will be neutralized along with their corresponding SCP-4639 instance.

Description

SCP-4639 is a parasitic subspecies of the orange tree (Citrus sinensis) capable of drastically altering its local ecosystem. SCP-4639 has been both thaumaturgically and technologically enhanced to promote increased Elan Vital Essence (EVE)2 absorption, climate acclimation, and gross annual fruit yield.

SCP-4639-A are organisms created through a parasitic hybridization process affecting biology exposed to SCP-4639. These instances lose control of general motor functions and act as an extension of SCP-4639. There is currently no method of reversing this process once sufficient biomass has been converted. After several months SCP-4639-A instances will undergo a rooting process, at which time they begin taking on the appearance and function of SCP-4639.

Discovery

SCP-4639 became known to the Foundation through assets embedded within GoI-0561 ("Marshall, Carter, & Dark"), on 2017/02/16. The Foundation received the following documentation regarding SCP-4639, as well as its last known location.

The Foundation's initial investigation revealed over 50 unexplained disappearances in the town of Arcadia in the months of December and January, as well as several reports of drastic changes to the local ecosystem.

Recovery

After visually confirming the SCP-4639 contamination in the city of Arcadia, Mobile Task Force Epsilon-30 ("Damned Druids") were dispatched to contain and neutralize SCP-4639. Cover Story FF51 (Infectious Disease Outbreak) was enacted and all civilians were placed on quarantine during the operation.

On 2017/03/20, MTF ∑-30 confirmed a complete neutralization of all non-contained SCP-4639 instances. This came at a direct detriment to Arcadia's local ecosystem as over 13.20 km2 of land was rendered nearly barren. A disinformation campaign is currently underway. Foundation front company Synergy Community Project is currently lending aid to the municipality of Arcadia, in order to restore the community's normalcy. A detachment of the Foundation's Florakinetic Department will remain in Arcadia to facilitate a two-year regrowth operation to restore the area's pre-SCP-4639 ecosystem.

A total of 46 samples, 10 SCP-4639-A instances and 1 juvenile SCP-4639 were recovered for containment.

Addenda

2017/08/22 Update: SCP-4639 was cleared for phased testing in order to ascertain the specifics of how new instances are produced. This was done in order to facilitate enhanced efficacy on any future containment efforts.

On 2017/05/03, human subject D-52110, was fed one fully ripened SCP-4639 fruit before being stripped nude and sealed within Humanoid Testing Chamber-5. The conversion to SCP-4639-A took place over 22 hours; Audio/Video equipment recorded the process in full.

Following this test, a total of 14 D-Class personnel were exposed to SCP-4639-A/0; with each subsequent exposure yielding incrementally faster conversion rates. SCP-4639-A/0 through SCP-4639-A/14 were allowed to fully develop into SCP-4639 instances, which took approximately three months to complete. These 15 instances of SCP-4639 have been confined to Botanical Containment Chamber-18 and will remain so indefinitely.
