SCP-273 - The SCP Foundation (2023)


Item #:SCP-273

object class:Euclid

Special Containment Procedures:SCP-273 is kept in a 5m x 10m enclosure, half of which is closed off for privacy. All of the cell's main structural and cladding materials are flame retardant and non-thermal conductive materials. A sleeping bag and other modest furniture is allowed as long as it remains in the private area and all meals take place in the adjacent area.

All windows from the observation room to the enclosure are made of heat-treated glass with a total thickness of at least 1 cm and an insulated cavity. The heat and infrared sensors in the cabinet and observation are configured to trigger an alarm if the temperature exceeds 50 degrees Celsius. In that case, observation personnel must evacuate the room.

Food in the form of raw meat must be made available for consumption every 12 hours, at least 2.5 kg per feed. Other food items may be provided upon SCP-273's request, as long as good behavior persists. All clothing supplied to SCP-273 must be flame retardant or cheap fabrics and manufacture.

SCP-273 is not to be interacted with in person if it has not consumed a raw meat meal weighing at least 2.5 kg within the last 12 hours.

In light of Incident 273-02, no alcoholic beverages containing more than 50% alcohol by volume, nor any other flame accelerators, are to be provided to SCP-273. All personnel interacting with SCP-273 are to be armed with non-lethal countermeasures. Lethal force must not be used.

Description:SCP-273 resembles a middle-aged woman of Indian descent. DNA samples and medical testing indicate that SCP-273 conforms to human normality in all other respects, despite the subject's abnormalities. SCP-273 does not need to eat or drink, but is perfectly capable of doing so. SCP-273 has generally demonstrated voluntary compliance and cooperation with Foundation and containment requirements.

SCP-273 suffers from what it calls "starvation" and requires regular feedings every 12 hours. This hunger is satisfied through a form of long-distance combustion. This does not produce visible flames, but oxidizes the object from the outside in until it is reduced to a fine white ash. Metals are not consumed except under special circumstances (see Incident Report 273-03).

When tested, hunger indicates a preference for meat over other organic matter, particularly live humans. SCP-273 shows no signs of conscious control over satiety and becomes irritable when eating live animals. In response to testing with D-Class personnel, SCP-273 yelled at the ghost [DATA EXPUNGED] in the corner of its private compound and refused to enter the front bulkhead for 12 hours.

Attachment 273-01:Upon SCP-273's death, the body becomes the center of a great fire, marked by a central pillar approximately one meter wide that extends upwards. After the initial flames have subsided, all that remains of SCP-273's body is a pile of white ash covered with faint blue flames. The flame cannot be extinguished by oxygen deprivation and requires no fuel.

Over the course of several hours, SCP-273's body slowly forms from the ash pile, consuming all nearby sources of raw materials, including the surrounding air. In this state, slow consumption of inorganic matter was observed. The new body resembles the old one in every way, with no sign of injury or illness. Once SCP-273's body is fully reformed, it will awaken with no memory of the events following its recent death.

Incident Report 273-01

The Foundation has received reports of a thin pillar of flame over 70m high and resulting wildfires observed near β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ. Due to the unusual shape and duration of the fire, a small MTF was sent to the scene.

The bodies of two deceased Caucasians, a male and a female, were found at the fires and the cause of death was later determined to be severe third-degree burns. SCP-273 was found shortly thereafter, naked and covered in white ash, on the carcass of a deer that radiated an unusual amount of heat. The corpse crumbled into ash and embers when touched.

SCP-273 was cooperative at this point, following the task force. SCP-273 was then transported to Site-β–ˆβ–ˆ for evaluation and containment.

Partial transcript of interview with SCP-273:
Interviewer:Dra. β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ.
Preface:SCP-273 was obtained the previous day and placed in a temporary cell at Site-β–ˆβ–ˆ. one behind dr β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ positioned video camera provided visual recordings of the interview.

SCP-273:So you're saying I'm safe here. away from people.
Dra. β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ:E, 273.
SCP-273:Thank you very much. And by the way, my name is β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ. You can use this instead.
Dra. β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ:Written. [Pause, rustling of papers.] What's the first thing you remember when you were younger?
SCP-273:[long pause followed by a deep breath] I woke up surrounded by flames and covered in ash. It was the first time I think.
Dra. β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ:Don't you remember anything from before? How long ago was that? How old were you?
SCP-273:Isn't it right to ask only one question at a time?
Dra. β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ:Please answer the questions.
SCP-273:Me, not me. It was a long time. Probably [DATA EXPUNGED].
Dra. β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ:And how old were you?
SCP-273:3β–ˆ years, I remember that. And [pause] I think I made a big mistake. Maybe that's why I'm the way I am now.
Dra. β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ:And what are you now?
SCP-273:a demon

Personnel working with or observing SCP-273 should be reminded of this fact and the procedure for working with humanoid SCPs in general. -DR. β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ

Incident Report 273-02:

Agents β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ and β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ entered SCP-273's facility with the intent of inquiring about β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ. SCP-273 had previously received a bottle of Bacardi 151 for personal use from Agent β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ. 12 hours and 37 minutes have passed since the last scheduled feed. As the agents entered, SCP-273 motioned for them to leave. When they initially did not, SCP-273 became agitated, shouting and gesticulating at them frantically. Less than a second after the door was locked, the bottle of Bacardi [DATA EXPUNGED] was observed.

[DATA EXPUNGED] Extreme damage to SCP-273's facility and observation room caused by flames of unprecedented intensity. Recorded temperatures exceeded β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ degrees Celsius. The death of Agent β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ will be handled in accordance with normal procedure. Agent β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ is still recovering at this time. SCP-273's ashes were contained in an airtight, fireproof vault. Damaged pens must be repaired so they can be used later to contain other SCPs.

Incident Report 273-03:
Location:Location β–ˆβ–ˆ

The fireproof vault has been determined to be ineffective at containing SCP-273. Severe corrosion damage to the vault's interior and hinges led to a containment breach, followed by the resumption of reactivation of SCP-273. 3kg of raw pork was left in the room and the door was locked. Upon awakening, SCP-273 appeared disoriented, but consumed the offered food as expected. SCP-273 then requested to be returned to its original containment. Since the housing has already been repaired, this request will be immediately attended to.

Attachment 273-03-2:SCP-273's activity has changed dramatically since the death event. It rarely leaves the private part of its enclosure except to eat and refuses to speak. Monitoring with β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ shows that SCP-273 hardly moves when alone, sleeping, or sitting against a wall. It shows classic signs of depression, although there were no previous signs of such a condition. If there are further changes in behavior, close observation is recommended.
