Miss Lohner's Sandbox

Canon Mass Orientation Tool

In Character: New administrative staff with sufficient security clearance may use this tool to more efficiently familiarize themselves with the information in the SCP database. For security and data-integrity purposes, this form of access is read-only.

Out of character: It's a tool that makes it easier to go on an archive binge. You can use the Canon Mass Orientation Tool a lot or you can just be a CMOT Dabbler, it's totally up to you.

Item #: SCP-2378

Object Class: Keter


Earliest instance of SCP-2378

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-2378 is a white powder, resembling flour, or in certain cases, salt, that tends to cake and form chunks if left in a condition with excessive moisture. The substance is extremely volatile, and ignites when excited in any way, motion, heat, or chemically. It is extremely hard to contain SCP-2378, due to the substance's volatile nature. As SCP-2378 was shipped to the Foundation by [DATA EXPUNGED], two of our staff members, [DATA EXPUNGED] and [DATA EXPUNGED] were killed in an explosion caused by a spontaneous combustion of one of the vials of SCP-2378.

A close observation and electrochemical screening of SCP-2378 revealed the structure to be mercury trichloride. This has been observed to be an anomaly, as mercury is not supposed to form more than two bonds. Also, all samples of SCP-2378 are observed to be radioactive, as the company, [DATA EXPUNGED] is based in [REDACTED], Ukraine. The alpha radiation emitted by SCP-2378 are extremely damaging to cellular DNA. This company is known to have collected certain samples of elements for chemical production from Chernobyl and other nuclear sites in Ukraine, in an attempt to create new possibilities for elements.

SCP-2378 can be dissolved in water to form a highly toxic, radioactive solute that is extremely dangerous to life. The organic matter that was tested on was destroyed, leaving dark, necrotic tissue within three days. Organisms kept in close proximity to SCP-2378 slowly succumbed to radiation poisoning. A mouse injected with SCP-2378 showed symptoms of both radiation poisoning and mercury poisoning. The one plastic beaker that was used to contain the solute of SCP-2378 softened after three weeks, demonstrating the slight acidic nature of SCP-2378. However, this solute showed no effect on carbon fiber. SCP-2378 seems to be nullified by carbon fiber, as all radiation levels are lower, and the substance is less reactive when stored in carbon fiber containers. All samples of SCP-2378 are to be kept in airtight containers made out of carbon fiber, and to be stored in a room with absolutely no ventilation, light, movement or temperature change, and periodical investigations to determine corrosion and radiation levels must be done every week to ensure safety of the compound. All security breaches of SCP-2378 must be reported immediately to Head of Staff, and immediate action must be taken.

Any exposure to SCP-2378 must be reported immediately to the head of radiology and toxicology, Dr. ███████. Efforts will not be made to save staff exposed to SCP-2378 for more than 5 minutes.

A log from Dr. [REDACTED] shows the effects of SCP-2378 on an adult, middle aged male human being.

Test A - Date

Subject: Effects of SCP-2378 (mercury trichloride) on an adult, middle aged male human.
Procedure: The experiment procedure on subject [DATA EXPUNGED] on date █/██/███ was to inject SCP-2378 into a human male intravenously. The results were measured over a span of one week.
Results: Initial observations of the subject showed a severe red rash on the injection site, about one minute after injection. Subject appears to be fine, physically and mentally. Afterwards, about two hours later, the subject shows mild gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea and more frequent bowel movements, which became increasingly fluid. The severity of said symptoms appear to progress. Initial observations on the second day show a severe, painful red rash, along with a couple of boils around the injection site. The subject now exhibits vomiting and watery diarrhea. It can be observed that the subject is in pain, and that the cells of the subject were degrading, as the subject was able to peel off his own fingernails. Initial observations on the third day show the subject in a critical state. Small boils and fluid filled pustules cover the body of the subject. Body cells of the subject appeared to decay, similarly to necrotic tissue. The mental state of the subject has appeared to change, as the subject appears to be showing signs of psychosis and delirium. The subject's excrement is now composed of blood and intestinal matter, while the vomit is a black/brown fluid. Initial observations on the fourth day, █/██/███, show that the subject is dead.
Analysis: SCP-2378 is an extremely toxic substance, capable of causing cellular death on contact with living organisms. This substance is to be immediately contained to prevent further harm done to living organisms.


██████ corpse found 2 days later in a hotel room

Addendum 1: Staff member ███████ ██████, a 37 year old male, succumbed to the toxic effects of SCP-2378 due to inhaling the substance through a previously undetected leak in his hazmat suit. At the time of the incident, ██████ showed respiratory symptoms similar to severe asthma, and severe "pounding migraines", as ██████ had described. ██████ began to vomit dark colored blood three hours after the incident, as his condition worsened. ██████ was last seen in a hotel room, inside of a bathtub.. He died due to respiratory, kidney and heart failure three days after the incident.

Addendum 2 Another staff member, █████ ██████, a 25 year old female, was exposed to SCP-2378 and died due to exposure. Staff member █████ failed to check her hazmat suit for leaks, and was exposed to SCP-2378. The substance had gone through a leak in the finger, therefore exposing her left hand to the substance. Later, staff member █████ ate lunch, with SCP-2378 on left hand. █████ was exposed to SCP-2378 cutaneously and through the GI tract. One hour later, █████ a festering red welt had formed on her left hand, and she had developed severe, profuse, watery diarrhea that became bloody in a matter of hours.

Something to remember about ideas for new site tools, no matter how neat or useful they might seem:


So don't be like me. Ask a mod first, then try to implement it.
