Item #: SCP-3589

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-3589 is contained in a modified Humanoid Containment Cell. SCP-3589's current arms and upper body are to be immobilized in polymer gel #MCN119, replaced monthly. Nonbiological arms composed of valuable materials may be melted down or otherwise scavenged, while biological arms are to be cryogenically preserved when not undergoing research.

Description: SCP-3589 is Armando Rivera, a 34-year-old Mexican-American man.

SCP-3589's anomalous properties manifest when one of its arms is severed or forcibly torn from it. At this point, an amorphous growth, composed mainly of stem cells, will appear on SCP-3589's stump. This growth will rapidly differentiate and grow into a new arm within 1.1 seconds. SCP-3589 claims to feel no pain during either this process or the initial removal.

SCP-3589 is capable of forcibly pulling off its own arms with little resistance or difficulty despite the arm not exhibiting any uncharacteristic strength. However, attempts to tear off arms by any other person, or by machinery, require approximately quadruple the tensile force otherwise predicted.

SCP-3589's detached arms can be composed of a large variety of materials and are not universally human in morphology1. Arms composed of gaseous, liquid, or amorphous materials retain their shape. SCP-3589 does not appear to have any influence or knowledge of the nature of new arms prior to their manifestation.

Detached arms made of flesh remain viable indefinitely despite their lack of sustenance once removed from SCP-3589's body. The upper ends of these arms self-seal all blood vessels and grow a covering of similar material within 0.4 seconds of removal.

SCP-3589 remains capable of limited motor control of its arms after detachment, with the degree of coordination and control over them correlating inversely with the number of instances SCP-3589 attempts to control simultaneously. SCP-3589 receives limited sensory information from severed arms, mainly touch and proprioception.

Addendum 3975-01: During an unrelated containment breach, SCP-3589 attempted to escape in the ensuing chaos. SCP-3589 was noted to have discarded several dozen arms until it had generated several dense metallic ones. At this point SCP-3589 formed a rudimentary suit of armor around itself made from interlocking arms, and attempted to flee Site security, while wielding arms (corresponding to Therizinosaurus, scorpions, and various volatile chemicals) as makeshift weapons.

Dr. Rosa Marquez, severely injured in the initial breach, was attempting to activate Site lockdown procedures when one of SCP-3589's discarded human arms landed near her and forcibly attached itself to her wounded shoulder. SCP-3589 proceeded to lose control of all arms currently active, and all arms rapidly converged towards Dr. Marquez.
