Item #: SCP-1026
Object Class: Safe Euclid (see Addendum #1026-1)
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-1026 is contained within a 8 m x 8 m unfurnished room. Personnel are advised not to enter SCP-1026's containment cell without supervision from an external observer. SCP-1026 is contained within a reinforced cell in Sector ██. Under no circumstances are any personnel to enter the containment area; all observation will be done remotely through security cameras. No care is necessary; SCP-1026 has no apparent need for food, water, or sleep.
Description: SCP-1026 is an entity that produces a powerful mental effect on any observer who sees it directly. This effect causes the observer to become completely convinced that SCP-1026 is someone who they know and trust. There is currently no known way to convince the observer otherwise; this effect will continue for approximately one (1) hour after they are removed from SCP-1026's presence (subjects that lack any close relationships, such as sociopaths, cannot see SCP-1026 and refuse to acknowledge its existence). When viewed indirectly, such as through a camera feed or photograph, SCP-1026 appears as a blurry, roughly humanoid entity. This entity appears to "flicker", rapidly changing height, shape, and color. SCP-1026 is capable of speech; however, this speech sounds extremely garbled and distorted to anyone aside from its observer, who perceives it as perfectly normal human speech. SCP-1026 has also displayed reasoning and problem-solving abilities on par with those of a human, as well as a fairly docile temperament (see Addendum #1026-1).
NOTE: In my opinion, SCP-1026 probably exists partially "outside" normal space/time. This would explain why it appears to "flicker" when viewed indirectly. However, there's no hard evidence for this; more research needs to be done before we can get an accurate idea of its true nature. -Dr. █████
The following log is an account of a test to determine the exact nature of SCP-1026's memetic abilities, performed just prior to Incident 1026-1. On ██/██/██ D-5582 was told to enter the testing area and perform a series of experiments to gather information about SCP-1026's physiology. Dr. █████ oversaw the test and communicated with D-5582 through a speaker.
On ██/██/██, SCP-1026-B was located two miles from Sector ██, where SCP-1026-A is currently being held (how it managed to cover the distance between the the original facility and Sector ██ is currently unknown). A security team was dispatched to contain it. [DATA EXPUNGED], resulting in the accidental neutralization of SCP-1026-B. Dr. █████ performed an autopsy of the entity on ██/██/██ (see Document 1026-B).
