Item #: SCP-2151
Object Class: Safe
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-2151-A and SCP-2151-B are to be kept in separate high security containment lockers at Site-81. Testing of SCP-2151-A and -B is currently suspended.
SCP-2151-1A is to be maintained at Site-81 indefinitely, or until SCP-2151-1A expires.
Description: SCP-2151-A and SCP-2151-B are nearly identical stainless steel rings. Aside from their effect on human wearers, they present no other anomalous properties.
When two human beings wear SCP-2151-A and SCP-2151-B, any physical contact between them will activate SCP-2151-A and -B. Immediately upon contact, the two instances will increase dramatically in temperature and burn into the skin of the wearer. This happens quickly, and typically takes less than 20 seconds before the objects disappear under the skin of the wearer.
The point of contact between the two subjects will also increase in temperature, often resulting in severe burning in the area, and the skin there will fuse. As time passes, more and more of the skin connecting the two individuals will become fused, eventually consuming the entire bodies of both subjects. Over time, the distinguishing characteristics of the individual subjects will become distorted and unrecognizable from their original state, and many of the biological functions of the individuals will shut down entirely. The resulting entity is classified as SCP-2151-1(X). It is currently uncertain whether any higher mental functions are maintained throughout this process.
At the end of this process, SCP-2151-A and SCP-2151-B will be pushed out of the resulting body by seemingly natural processes. No other anomalous activity occurs past this point.
SCP-2151-1A is an entity believed to be the product of SCP-2151-A and SCP-2151-B's effect on two human beings. This entity was discovered at the home of Mr. █████ and ███████ ████████, in the room of [DATA EXPUNGED: See Addendum 2151/A for more information]. Despite additional instances of SCP-2151-1(X) expiring shortly after formation, SCP-2151-1A has persisted for more than 30 years since discovery. Research into how this is possible is ongoing.
