Special Containment Procedures

Due to the nature of the anomaly, direct containment of SCP-5569 is currently unfeasible.

In cooperation with the municipal government of the Sharqia Governorate of Egypt, the exhumation of recently deceased human remains is strictly forbidden. All death records and autopsies are to have any mention of SCP-5569-2 removed. The occupation of coroner and undertaker is to be a Foundation-regulated government-appointed position; all individuals employed will receive a monthly amnestic treatment to remove knowledge of SCP-5569-2. Any civilian discoveries of SCP-5569-2 will be discredited, have evidence destroyed, and/or witnesses amnestisized at the discretion of the responding concealment team.

A Foundation security detail is to remain posted at the Bubastis excavation site. Access to SCP-5569-1 is strictly forbidden to civilians, as well as Foundation personnel. The Foundation-led Tell Basta Project is authorized to operate within Bubastis under the stipulation that SCP-5569-1 remains undisturbed.

In the situation that SCP-5569-1a is breached, Mobile Strike Force Gamma-77 ("Solomon's Bane") is to be dispatched to facilitate re-containment.

Update|2016/01/22: In order to ensure that SCP-5569-1a remains sealed the construction of an S-Class Thaumic Neutralization Chamber surrounding SCP-5569-1 has been approved. The chamber's estimated time of completion is 2020/10/31.

Description

SCP-5569-1 is an underground temple complex located in Bubastis, Egypt; the inner chambers of which are sealed by a thaumaturgic array. The phenomenon designated SCP-5569-2 is centered around the SCP-5569-1 complex.

SCP-5569-2 is a phenomenon affecting human corpses within a 3000 km2 area of the Sharqia Governorate of Egypt. SCP-5569-2 causes deceased humans to have their tongues demanifested from their bodies within 24 hours postmortem. The demanifested tongues will re-manifest within SCP-5569-1's main chamber. These tongues show no signs of decomposition despite existing in conditions otherwise incapable of such preservation. The tongue's preservation appears to last indefinitely unless the tongue is removed from SCP-5569-1, at which time rapid decomposition occurs. There are estimated to be over 2.5 million human tongues within SCP-5569-1.

Systematic exhumation and examination of human remains revealed that SCP-5569-2 has affected 100% of deceased humans within its area of effect. This has occurred since approximately 1964; as human remains from prior to 1964 have been unaffected by SCP-5569-2.

Discovery

On 1965/02/11, the Foundation was contacted by a representative of the United Arab Republic regarding the SCP-5569-2 phenomenon. Through a joint effort with the local government, SCP-5569-2's area of effect was established along with its containment procedures.

SCP-5569-1 was discovered by the Tell Basta Project on 2015/03/14, during the routine excavation of Bubastis. Dr. William Cooper was the first person to enter SCP-5569-1, uncovering the main chamber and its large quantity of human tongues shortly thereafter. Dr. Cooper reported his findings to the Tell Basta Project's Foundation liaison, at which time the connection to SCP-5569-2 was made. The Foundation dispatched Archeological Task Force Mu-4 ("Tomb Robbers") as a response to the initial discovery. Due to the presence of several thaumaturgic runes, Dr. Giovanni Caprini1 was assigned to facilitate any necessary thaumaturgic response.

SCP-5569-1 Report

SCP-5569-1 consists of three concentric areas, the outermost of which(designated SCP-5569-1c) was discovered in 1964 during Bubastis's initial excavation. The artifacts found within SCP-5569-1c included artistic pieces, mundane documents, several human remains, and over 300,000 mummified felines. Of the objects discovered by civilians in 1964, none showed any signs of anomalous properties. Dr. Caprini theorizes that the excavation of the outer chamber is what triggered the SCP-5569-2 phenomenon.

Unlike the outer area, SCP-5569-1b drastically differs from typical Egyptian temples with very little artistic or religious paraphernalia. One hieroglyphic mural is present in the main chamber depicting a battle or war fought and won against an army of feline entities.2 Of the 14 chambers discovered within SCP-5569-1b, only the main chamber and innermost wall had shown signs of anomalous properties. The main chamber forming the center for the SCP-5569-2 ritual and the inner walls completing a second thaumaturgic seal surrounding the innermost chamber (designated SCP-5569-1a). Along with the powerful thaumic seal, there was a warning above the door within the main chamber leading to SCP-5569-1a, written in Egyptian hieroglyphs, demotic, and Greek. The following is an English translation of the warning:

Here sleeps the brood mother.

When the Third Seal breaks, bare us your tongues.

Repair the Third Seal.3

Should the Second Seal break, Our Speech/Tongue will fend off the fiend.

Uphold the Second Seal.4

Do not fall prey to its lies–

The remaining inscriptions were indecipherable due to erosion.

Radar, thermal, and sonographic examination of SCP-5569-1a revealed it to consist of one corridor leading to a large chamber. The only object within this chamber was a small geological structure, correctly theorized to be a statue.

Exploration of SCP-5569-1a was approved and scheduled for 2015/05/23.

Incident Report | Operation Inner-Circle

On 2015/05/23, an attempt to explore SCP-5569-1a was made, designated Operation Inner-Circle. The procedure for exploration was as follows:

  1. One D-Class personnel will be fitted with a hazmat suit, lighting apparatus, and a shoulder-mounted audio/video recording device.
  2. A five member detachment of MSF Gamma-77 will be prepared on standby in the main chamber of SCP-5569-1.
  3. Four technicians will open the door to SCP-5569-1a allowing the D-Class to enter.
  4. The technicians will seal the door behind the D-Class at which time it will remain sealed for 20 minutes.
  5. The D-Class will explore the SCP-5569-1a chamber and any occupants thereof.
  6. After 20 minutes the chamber will be opened, and the D-Class removed.

Operation Inner-Circle was conducted at 13:30, the following is a transcription of the event:

Following this incident, SCP-5569-1 was sealed, and its current containment procedures enacted on 2015/05/25. Due to the nature of the anomaly, no further testing of SCP-5569-1a is to be scheduled, though methods of reducing or eliminating the SCP-5569-2 phenomenon have been approved.
