SCP-1690 is permitted to request for furnishings under certain specifications. Meaning no anomalous artifacts (apart from it's weapon).

The object most often keeps it's cell divided into two sections. One half being where it sleeps and eats and the other being a "dojo" of sorts. SCP-1690 spends most of it's day in said "dojo" half of it's living quarters, as it enjoys testing and improving it's combat and "spiritual" prowess. The training end of the cell is to be outfitted with a rack containing a number of wooden replicas of the subject's weapon as well as three bamboo staffs, wooden practice dummies to train against and an assortment of wax candles. SCP-1690 is also permitted to request a sparing partner so long as a protocol for said sparring is followed. That protocol being that the subject and it's partner use only the wooden replicas of SCP-1690's weapon or the bamboo staff, a calm demeanor is to be displayed at all times by both the subject and it's partner and finally an additional agent must be assigned to supervise the sparring session.

The sparring of which SCP-1690 partakes in with faculty agents has in fact proven useful as it has been discovered that agents who have trained with SCP-1690 gain increased CQC abilities. Whenever dealing with SCP-1690, it is to be stripped of it's 3 foot long sword-like weapon of which is normally located in a sheath made of an unidentifiable leather strapped across it's back.

Faculty also report feeling renewed after visiting SCP-1690. From each winter to the beginning of spring, the subject grows slightly agitated as it is believed to be the subject's equivalent of a mating season. Due to this, SCP-1690 is to be released onto a remote island located off the coast of Alaska which must remain under surveillance at all times that the subject is upon the island.
