Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe Euclid [pending Keter classification following Incident: XXXX-1-827-07]

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained within a locked, radiation proofed containment unit. This unit must be guarded at all times by no less than three (3) security personnel. All security personnel are to remain on high alert for any instances of SCP-XXXX-1 attempting to gain access to the item.

As of incident XXXX-1-827-03, SCP-XXXX has been moved to a Remote Containment Cell at Site ██. The item is to be contained within a locked, radiation proofed containment unit containing a short-range electromagnetic pulse emitter. A team of armed Foundation personnel is to be stationed at this outpost and remain on high alert for any instances of SCP-XXXX-1 attempting to gain access to SCP-XXXX. Should staff encounter an instance of SCP-XXXX-1, a report to the stationed team is to be issued and SCP-XXXX is to be placed under immediate lockdown. Under these circumstances, the EMP emitter in SCP-XXXX's containment cell must be activated in order to assist in dissuading the hostile SCP-XXXX-1 manifestations. Any and all manifestations of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be eliminated immediately via any means necessary.

Following Incident: XXXX-1-827-07, should an instance of SCP-XXXX-1 gain access to SCP-XXXX then Code G-XXXX-827-B (Codename "Snowstorm") must be initiated. It is imperative that SCP-XXXX-1 is eliminated and SCP-XXXX is contained before any damage can be done under these circumstances.

Description: Visually, SCP-XXXX resembles a brown and grey peaked cap in a style appropriate to the 1930's or 1940's Russian armed forces. Although material analysis reveals that the item was created significantly earlier, approximately dating back to the 1910's. SCP-XXXX is constructed of felt, silk, brass and lacquered wood. Samples taken from the specimen do not exhibit any unusual properties. SCP-XXXX has thus far shown to be relatively harmless. It can be interacted with in any manner without any noticeable effects.

SCP-XXXX is surrounded by an unusual "halo" of electromagnetic energy. This field extends roughly thirty (30) centimetres from the hat's permitter and is capable of disrupting electronic devices that enter it as well as capturing small metallic items. This field can be temporarily disrupted with the use of EMP emitters such as the one stationed in SCP-XXXX's containment unit. Research suggests that this energy is related to the manifestations of SCP-XXXX-1, as disrupting the electromagnetic aura has shown to impair SCP-XXXX-1's navigational skills.

SCP-XXXX-1 is identified as a humanoid entity claiming to be "Vasily Zaytsev". SCP-XXXX-1 manifestations show no discernible pattern or specific location, nor are they consistent in appearance, race, age or gender. SCP-XXXX-1 instances are highly dangerous, being both heavily armed and highly proficient in the use of firearms and close-quarters combat. It is unknown where SCP-XXXX-1 instances originate from, nor where they obtain their equipment. Investigations are continuing, however currently all occurrences of SCP-XXXX-1 have been appeared with little to no warning. Once SCP-XXXX-1 manifests, it will attempt to breach Foundation security and obtain SCP-XXXX via any means necessary. All instances have thus far been highly aggressive and hostile, attacking and killing any they deem a threat without apparent distinction. Despite showing no superhuman abilities, SCP-XXXX-1 instances should be treated as a high-level threat.

If an instance of SCP-XXXX-1 is killed or held in one location for more than 24 hours, the subject will rapidly decay until reduced to ashes, leaving only clothing and weaponry behind. Samples taken from these ashes have yet shown no unusual properties. DNA testing of the ash has so far been inconclusive in regards to identifying the origins of SCP-XXXX-1 instances. All equipment recovered from SCP-XXXX-1 remains have been untraceable. All instances of SCP-XXXX-1 speak fluent Russian and will refer to themselves as male, regardless of the subject's ethnicity or gender. When detained, disarmed and questioned, SCP-XXXX-1 instances will consistently report that they are one Vasily Zaytsev and are attempting to obtain their "property". Attempts to dissuade SCP-XXXX-1 by providing it with a replica of SCP-XXXX has proven unsuccessful.

Following Incident: XXXX-1-827-03, it was revealed that If SCP-XXXX-1 is successful in obtaining SCP-XXXX, the subject will begin to emit high levels of both electromagnetic and nuclear radiation within a 500 x 500 meters³ area. The subject will also attempt to navigate itself to a densely populated area and cause as many fatalities as possible. While in this state, SCP-XXXX will abandon all weaponry and equipment and will refuse to speak. If SCP-XXXX-1 is killed while wearing SCP-XXXX, the subject will violently explode with a force approximate to 10kg of TNT. The radiation emitted from SCP-XXXX will then instantly vanish. Notably; the explosion caused by SCP-XXXX-1's death does not appear to negatively affect SCP-XXXX in any way.

Following Incident: XXXX-1-827-07, it was also revealed that [DATA EXPUNGED]

XXX-O5-01 NOTICE: Public report logs of SCP-XXXX-1 manifestations have been discontinued following Incident: XXXX-1-827-07. All report logs must now be submitted directly to an XXXX-O5 staff member. See Addendum XXXX-O5-02.

Addendum XXXX-O5-01: While this incident caused a great number of casualties and notable damage to the Foundation complex, it is still not enough to warrant an upgrade to Keter. This incident was simply the result of a lack of information, and should be a reminder to all that data is vital in ensuring safety when dealing with any anomalous items. SCP-XXXX is now safely contained at Site ██. An upgrade to Keter is not essential.

Addendum XXXX-O5-02: How this SCP-XXXX-1 manifestation was able to acquire such an item is still unknown. But from this point on, all report logs must be submitted directly to me for evaluation. Upgrade to Keter status is pending, but at this point remains unlikely. We have, however, enacted a new security protocol - Dubbed "Snowstorm" - to be enacted should SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-1 come in contact in future.
