Jam Contest 1 - 'The Legacy of the Shattered King'

Item #: SCP-M

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-M is to be secured at Site-37 in a high class containment cell.The liquid it secretes is to be collected through an automatic collection vat positioned below SCP-M. This liquid is to be continually stored in a Site-37 volatile liquids unit luntil a safe method of disposal or usage is devised

The recovery of the remaining body mass of SCP-M is a top priority. The capturing and interrogation of enemy GOI units believed to have played a part in the death of SCP-M or believed to have any knowledge on the whereabouts of the remaining pieces of SCP-M's body is considered a top priority.

SCP-M-1 is to be used to track parts of SCP-M.

All efforts are to be undergone to ensure that SCP-M is prevented from being reassembled. Any additional parts of SCP-M found are to be held in a separate containment cell at a different site. Under no circumstances are any of the parts to be introduced to each other.

Description: SCP-M is the body of Robert Bumaro, the former head of the Church of the Broken God.

While the circumstances regarding SCP-M's death are unclear, the state of the body and conditions it was found indicate that SCP-M was killed in a battle.

The Foundation is currently only in possession of right arm, head, and part of the torso of SCP-M, which only constitutes about 37% of SCP-M's original body mass. The current whereabouts of the remaining body mass is currently unknown, but several other groups of interest (notably the GOC, Serpents Hand, and certain sarkic sects) are suspected to be in possession of the remaining 63% of SCP-M's body mass.

Tests have shown that SCP-M's body is incredibly durable, with only anomalously enhanced strength tests being able to to even scratch the metal, while flexibility tests have shown that the metal is able to bend as much as 45 degrees before stopping, perfectly regaining its shape once the stress is released.

It is unknown at this time what exactly the metal is made of.

SCP-M's body secretes a golden substance composed primarily of hydrocarbons and oxygen, and an as of yet unidentified substance. The substance burns slowly at an incredibly high temperature (highest recorded sustained temperature was 5,330°C) in incredibly small quantities, possesses extraordinary lubricating properties, produces no identifiable waste, and usage in prototypes has indicated that when used in batteries has an energy density 500x that of lithium ion batteries.

Consumption of the liquid by organic creatures leads to a similar effect to SCP-217 but with several notable differences. The conversion is much faster, with full conversion occurring anywhere from 12 to 24 hours depending on the weight of the subject. Those converted posses greatly enhanced mental and physical faculties. All subjects will invariably express a desire to 'make him whole again1' and will go to any length to accomplish this goal. Further consumption of the liquid by converted individuals (referred to as SCP-M-1) leads to even further enhanced capabilities.

Currently, due to their compliance and willingness to assist the Foundation, former personnel Scott Mullins is the only instance in containment.

Discovery: SCP-M was recovered on 23-December-2013 when an entity identifying itself as Legate Trunnion (a high ranking member of the Church of the Broken God) appeared on the outskirts of Site-37, heavily injured and carrying SCP-M. Scott Mullins, who was on a standard patrol, was the first personnel to respond to the intrusion and assisted the entity, tasking the other member to watch out for any other intrusions and contact site security, while he picked up the entity along with SCP-M proceeded to carry them to the site.

While the entity expired upon being delivered to the site, it had talked to Scott Mullins. An audio log from Mullins' equipment can be accessed below.

Addendum-M-1: On 23-December-2013, a field approximately 20 km in radius was the subject of a large scale battle between the Global Occult Coalition, a sect of Sarkicism, and the Broken Church.

The field is located in the center of what was once a large forest, and has been completely stripped of almost all organic materials. Formerly a mansion belonging to a 'James Von Smirch2' was located in the area but was completely destroyed. Due to the battle, the area is, at maximum, 23 meters below the surrounding land, is covered in random craters, and is almost completely devoid of all organic life. Fused metal comprises the majority of the surface of the area.

The area has been cut off from civilians and investigations are currently underway as to exactly what happened.

Two things are certain: There were no survivors from the battle and the area is where SCP-M was killed.

Below is a list of notable structures present or objects recovered:

Description of Item or Structure Properties Additional Notes
Large (20 m), sharp protrusions Each protrusion was made of bone and were heavily burned Studying the burn patterns, it is suspected that individuals were impaled on the bone and then were either struck off or incinerated in the same when the
'Nuclear Shadows3' surrounding the center of the field. Each shadow gives off elevated hume readings Suspected to be the remains of the GOC 'White Suit' strike team
Small (5-7 g) masses of flesh found underneath pieces of metal. The flesh found bore heavy similarities to the type of flesh found in SCP-610. Although the flesh was inert, all samples were incinerated.
A broken blade composed of hyper-compressed bone. The item displayed properties similar to the metal found in SCP-M The blade is suspected to have originated from a spear belonging to [REDACTED]
An immovable metal hammer present in the center of the field. The hammer is comprised of a substance identical to the metal found in SCP-M Due to the positioning of the hammer, it is suspected to have been the cause of the destruction to the area. Believed to have been the main weapon of Robert Bumaro.
SCP-M's right arm present holding the hammer. The item has been confirmed to be a part of SCP-M and secretes the same substance as SCP-M. Metals were found melted to the shoulder of the arm and was suspected to have been previously attached to an member of the Broken Church. When the arm was introduced to SCP-M, it was perfectly fused with the rest of the body and ceased secreting the liquid.
A large mass of melted metal directly surrounding the hammer. Removing the metal has revealed structures very similar to those found in SCP-M-1 instances and the deceased body of Legate Trunnion. Believed to have been the person who had attached the arm to themselves.

Through the materials found and the testimony of Legate Trunnion, a list of the suspected events has been created in the order that they were thought to have occurred.

  • Robert Bumaro is murdered through some unknown means.
  • Legate Trunnion discovers the body.
  • Through some unknown means, Robert Bumaro's body is broken and Trunnion.
  • Sarkicist assailants attack the area.
  • Due to the close proximity to SCP-2217, a GOC envoy is sent to the area.4
  • The three sides break out into fighting over the pieces of Robert Bumaro.
  • Trunnion is heavily injured and escapes with the largest piece of Bumaro's body.
  • The remaining forces continue to fight.
  • The right arm of Bumaro is used to activate the hammer, destroying most, if not all, of the remaining assailants.

Investigations are currently underway to discover the whereabouts of the remaining pieces, the exact details of the conflict, and the identify of the party that murdered SCP-M.

Based off of the testimony of Legate Trunnion and the remains of the battlefield, it is suspected that the reassembly of SCP-M could result in an XK-Class end of the world scenario.
