threat level: Ueclid
Description: SCP-XXX is a middle aged man appearing to be in a severe coma(according to glasgow scale). Weighing 108 pounds and best described as gaunt unless someone has fallen to his affect within one months time. Subject has no hair and is to be kept restrained on his bed at all times by rubber restraints.
Containment:SCP-XXX is contained in a 8x10 blank room with a single bed with sheets and all matter being made from synthetic materials. Subject requires little to no special containment due to medical status other than daily medical check by level 2 Medical Researcher. Anyone entering cell must wear a hazmat suit in accordance with radiation procedures anyone found interacting with subject without said precautions will be severely reprimanded.
SCP-XXX was recovered by Foundation Agents from a long term care ward at [Data Expunged] municipal hospital after several nurses complained of weight loss, increased sick leaves and lack of healing of wounds causing the death of several surrounding patients as well as one visitor who fell asleep nearby.
Anyone staying near SCP-XXX is slowly weakened over the course of █-█ hours in a manner similar to long term bed-ridden patients. The most extreme cases at █ days are reduced to little more than skeletons. How this is accomplished along with SCP-XXX's apparent lack of need for food, water, or even air is unknown and is currently under study. Subject is not resistant to damage but seems to regenerate at an accelerated rate when near Unprotected humans.
SCP-XXX can not affect non organic matter and full body Armor and hazmat suits have proven enough to be able to block the effects of his vicinity. Any organic materials are dissolved over the course of several hours while near the subject, Cloth, food, and even heavily treated items such as leather are destroyed over the course of hours in a manner similar to long term decay reducing them to fine dust. After Dissolving materials SCP-XXX is seen to be more healthy taking on weight and skin tone.
Brain Biopsy ordered by 05-command revealed numerous non-cancerous growths in brain. destruction of subject suspended pending further research on cause and possible enhancement and weaponization of subject.
