Description A simple steel medallion engraved with the Chinese symbols for Yin and Yang. When touched by an individual, the item will produce a duplicate of that individual. These duplicates tend to be focused upon a singular emotion or mental quality, which can be controlled by the individual touching the item. Killing a duplicate will result in the permanent loss of that emotion.

Initial Report
Author Ottaviano Medici Date November 08, 1970
Interest Medium Identifier Splitting Amulet
A normal contact sold this item to me during a regular meeting. She claims to have stolen it from the Foundation, where it had been SCP-138. I believe that further investigation into this claim may be warranted.

To activate the item, an individual must grasp it and then concentrate upon a specific emotion. When they do so, black smoke begins to emanate from the item, without an apparent source. It then pools on the ground next to the user, and forms into an identical copy of them.

This identical copy will be centered upon the emotion that was used to power the item. The original user of the item will then be unable to express that emotion. After one hour, the double will collapse back into smoke, which will return back to the user. If the duplicate is killed or dies before this hour elapses, the body will turn into smoke, but will dissipate and not return to the user. The user will then permanently loose whatever emotion they powered the item with.

The thief, when selling me the item only seemed to believe that simple emotions (fear, anger, happiness, sadness) could power the item, but I have played around with it and produced duplicates of myself centered around specific, more advanced emotions - such as zeal, compassion, and bliss. Some of these duplicates are very similar to a standard version of myself.

I see many potential uses for the item.

used internally to make soldiers without fear at first. this is a bad idea, so they turn to more advanced "fear" emotions, like trepidation, panic, helplessness, anxiety - these qualities are much safer to remove

Customer Lawrence Durant Filed Month DD, YYYY
This item was an excellent purchase, and made for the highlight of my latest orgy! All of my guests told me that having sex with themselves was one of the most interesting times they had ever had, and told me they would like to do it again! The price point is a bit expensive, but the usage we got out of it was unforgettable.

It took some finagling to get Horniness, Lust and Romance all out of me and everyone else and separate, but a little practice got it working well. That set of emotions are all specific enough to leave us interested in the sex, but also produce a couple clones of ourselves that don't want to do anything else.

10/10, would go fuck myself again.

anomalous torture (mention inspired by a client using it to kill people he didn't like with no lasting legal ramifications

killing a person in front of them is shocking, makes for a good torture scheme. however, they fucked up and killed the real one, at which they realized that a clone based on fear is going to spill the beans easy

HELLO, OTTAVIANO. I HAVE GOOD NEWS REGARDING YOUR LATEST ACQUISITION - IT IS EVEN MORE USEFUL THAN YOU THOUGHT!

THE EMOTIONAL COPIES GENERATED BY THE ITEM HAVE SOULS SIMILAR ENOUGH TO THE USER THAT MOST DEMONS WILL ACCEPT IT AS THOUGH IT WERE THE ACTUAL SOUL. (SOME AREN'T TRICKED, BUT WILL ACCEPT IT ANYWAY.)

WHILE WE'VE HAD ABILITY TO PROVIDE OUR CLIENTS WITH A PLETHORA OF FAUSTIAN PACTS FOR A LONG TIME, THERE HAS NOT BEEN MUCH INTEREST IN SUCH A SERVICE. HOWEVER, THE LOSS OF EMOTION WOULD BE SIGNIFICANTLY MORE PALATABLE TO MANY OF OUR CUSTOMERS. ADDITIONALLY, THE IMMEDIATE RETURN ON INVESTMENT OFFERED BY THE ITEM WILL ALLOW US TO NEGOTIATE BETTER TERMS THAN NORMAL.

I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR AN ITEM THAT WOULD LET US BROADEN OUR FAUSTIAN PACT SERVICES FOR SOME TIME. EXCELLENT FIND, OTTAVIANO! WELL DONE!

It should conclude with the following sentence, or some variation on the warning.

Chandra - clean up description (write now is copied from the SCP); the H'rasm'Kal section is set up and doesn't go anywhere (perhaps it can carry the article by itself?); H'rasm'Kal is kind of a casual dude in his other appearances, so tone it down - he's rather polite and such; remove the Black Queen

self notes - change prices to be more in line with Perfection
SCP-138-ARC Uses:
