Special Containment Procedures

Due to the ongoing Sarkic threat, the former access point to SCP-5038 has been permanently sealed. Multiple Class II Bonfeld-Carizza field detectors have been planted throughout the French Quarter in order to detect any additional appearances of SCP-5038 instances.

MTF Beta-2 ("Bayou Boys") and the Xi-8 ("The Last To Fall") Beta Company have been stationed at Provisional Site FQ-1 in order to respond to any excursion of Sarkic forces from within LoI-504 ("La Rue Macabre").

In the event of an appearance of a new instance of SCP-5038, both teams should be immediately mobilized to respond to the potential threat, but initial contact should be made by Beta-2. Xi-8 is to engage Sarkic or Darkwater Lodge-affiliated entities only.


Description

Current SCP-5038 Access Point

SCP-5038 is a Class-31 Way located in the French Quarter of New Orleans, LA.

Originally accessed by following a complex series of walking patterns near Jackson Square, the primary access point has been rendered inaccessible via the use of four Class-6 Scranton Reality Anchors.

Due to the actions of PoI-504-L ("Papa Legba") during Incident 5038.inc.01, SCP-5038 can now be accessed from the doorway to a closed costume shop at 722 Dumaine St. This doorway has been designated SCP-5038-1, and access to SCP-5038 in this manner is limited to members of MTF Beta-2.

While this is currently the only known access point to SCP-5038, PoI-504-L can alter the location of SCP-5038-1 at will, and multiple instances may exist at a given time.

Discovery

SCP-5038 was initially theorized to exist in 1967 by several high-ranking individuals within GoI-0007 ("Global Occult Coalition") to explain the unusually high numbers of high-profile "Threat Entities" in the Greater New Orleans area. Reports of significant anomalous activity in the area continued to persist despite heavy GoI-0007 presence in and around Orleans Parish.

This theory was independently confirmed by the Foundation in 1982, due to the events surrounding the acquisition and eventual release of SCP-4421. In the years since, the Foundation had developed a fairly "hands off" approach to dealing with the leadership of LoI-504 and the entities that reside there.

This practice was initially beneficial to both the Foundation and LoI-504. The existence of the La Rue Macabre free port provided a place for anomalous entities to exist and operate in a place where they would not be a threat to the Veil or global normalcy. While the Foundation was not exactly forbidden from accessing LoI-504, the Leadership of LoI-504 made it clear that Foundation operatives would not be welcome in Rue Macabre. A notable exception to this were members of MTF Beta-2 and the late Dr. Isabelle Beaumont.

What precipitated the drastic change in relations between the Foundation and LoI-504 is currently unknown, but Foundation operatives are no longer welcome in LoI-504.

Additional Research

On November 3, 2019, a four-person Beta-2 team was on patrol within LoI-504 under the pretense of being on leave. As the nature of the SCP-5038 access prevented the team from streaming uplink data directly to SCiPNet, the absence of a new log from their patrol was not noted until the following morning.

When the team failed to check in to their assigned duty post the following day, Foundation .aic Humberto noted the discrepancy and the Site-932 Site Director was notified. An additional Beta-2 team was sent to investigate, but they were denied access to the primary SCP-5038 instance.

A transcript of the additional team's encounter with PoI-504-L follows:

2019/11/12 Update - Incident 5038.inc.01:
Four days after this encounter, the Bonfeld-Carizza detector planted at the intersection of Bourbon and Dumaine streets activated, indicating the presence of both Akiva radiation and corresponding fluctuations in the local Hume field. A Beta-2 field team was able to respond within 20 minutes.

They arrived to find the heavily disfigured remains of a former Beta-2 operative, later identified as Sergeant Aristide Cormier. Three additional combat harnesses with intact audio/visual recording equipment were also recovered from the scene.

There were no known witnesses to the recovery, though Humberto.aic has been tasked with trawling the information/entertainment networks and social media for any references to the incident.
