Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be surrounded by a clearly marked circle three meters in radius. Its containment chamber is to provide space for multiple supervisors and observers at once without forcing them close to the circle. The circle is not to be entered except during testing with at least one supervisor in attendance. Only C- and D-Class personnel may enter the circle.

In testing scenarios, supervisors are to carry a tranquilizer gun or other means of long-range neutralization. If a subject is unable or unwilling to leave the circle, the supervisor is to remain outside the circle and remove them by their tether. Psychological examinations are to be routinely administered to all personnel involved with SCP-XXXX.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a 2.7m tall sculpture composed of black metal resembling an armless humanoid figure in a kneeling pose. In place of a head, it possesses a round display screen connected to its neck by a thick bundle of cables. Several loose cables protrude from the base of its neck; their ends indicate they may have been forcibly severed from the display.

When a human subject approaches within three meters of SCP-XXXX, its screen displays an image of the subject's face. The face's expressions and behaviors do not mirror those of the subject, but are consistent with the subject's personality. SCP-XXXX speaks with a facsimile of the subject's voice by causing its body to vibrate. Should another individual move within three meters, a facsimile of their face and personality will the previous one. If a subject moves out of range and reenters it, the face is updated with a new facsimile.

SCP-XXXX is a highly effective mimic. Its imitations claim to be the subjects they resemble and possess all of their memories prior to entering the circle. Despite their appearance and claims of self-awareness, it is currently believed that SCP-XXXX is not sentient. The purpose of the imitations is unknown and may be harmful.

Addendum XXXX.1: Recovery

In October 2017, the Foundation investigated an electronics manufactory with possible business ties to Anderson Robotics. Field agents entered the building at night and conducted a thorough search of the premises. They discovered SCP-XXXX in a hidden storage compartment. Its screen initially displayed a motionless face with an expression of despair.

When field agent Andrea Selberg entered the compartment to retrieve SCP-XXXX, she reported that the face had changed to resemble her own. Simultaneously, SCP-XXXX reported (while imitating Agent Selberg) that its senses had ceased functioning and theorized that the sculpture might emit a sensory-deprivation field. It added that a voice had manifested in its head talking about faces and advised other personnel to approach with caution. After alerting a nearby Mobile Task Force unit, Agent Selberg attempted to explain the situation to SCP-XXXX. It refused to believe her and accused her of being a trick caused by SCP-XXXX. Other agents attempted to intervene, but SCP-XXXX appeared unable to hear them.

The task force unit arrived shortly after and moved SCP-XXXX to a Foundation facility using long-range equipment to avoid entering its area of effect. The factory was later proven to have no connection to Anderson Robotics, but remains under observation.
