Item #: SCP-2231
Object Class: Safe Neutralized
Special Containment Procedures: Revision 05/02/2014: SCP-2231-1 through -3 are to be kept on life support in the medical wing of Site 17 for an 180 day observational period. If no change in their condition is recorded the remaining instances of SCP-2231 are to be disconnected from life support and their remains disposed of. SCP-2231 no longer demonstrates any anomalous properties following the expiration of SCP-2231-4
Description: SCP-2231 was the shared identity of three otherwise non-anomalous human beings (referred to as SCP-2231-1, -2, and -3), claiming to go by the name “Johnathan Tran”, born June 17th 1983 and currently residing in Boise Idaho.
SCP-2231-1 is a 41 year old Korean male, SCP-2231-2 is a 13 year old Nigerian female, and SCP-2231-3 is a 56 year old Pakistani female. SCP-2231-1, -2, and -3 had a comprehensive knowledge of the experiences and history of the other two instances, as well as of the supposed shared identity of SCP-2231 (SCP-2231’s purported history does not match the verifiable history of instance -1 through -3 in any way).
All instances of SCP-2231 showed a strong preference to respond to questions about their past with information pertinent to the history of SCP-2231-4, as opposed to their own physical history. Following containment of SCP-2231-1 through -3 in 2013, each instance had demonstrated notable conflation of its physical history with that of the other two instances, frequently responding to questions categorically with details of the other instance’s history as well as their own.
SCP-2231-4 is the individual Johnathan Tran. As of the present date, SCP-2231-4 has demonstrated no knowledge of or connection to SCP-2231-1 through -3.
SCP-2231-4 was formerly the individual Johnathan Tran. SCP-2231-4 was incinerated following expiration on 05/01/2014.
Addendum 2231-1: Acquisition Log
SCP-2231-1, -2, and -3 were identified through standard computer analytics of atypical flight patterns when SCP-2231-1 purchased airline tickets for SCP-2231-2 and -3 on one way flights to Boise Air Terminal - Gowen Field (BOI). No prior connection between the 3 instances was found in the Foundation Societal Interaction Fishbone (FSIF) experimental software and the instances were flagged for interrogation at their Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD) layover by onsite Foundation personnel.
The anomalous characteristics of SCP-2231 were readily apparent during the interrogation. SCP-2231-1, -2, and -3 were processed and contained without incident.
Addendum 2231-2: POI-2231-1 Designation
Investigation of the personally identifying information provided by SCP-2231-1 through -3 regarding Johnathan Tran proved accurate. SCP-2231 is able to provide the current location of Johnathan Tran at all times, as well as comprehensive background information and information about Mr. Tran’s state of mind in real time.
Mr. Tran is now classified as POI-2231-1
Addendum 2231-3: SCP-2231-4 Designation
As per direction issued from the office of Research Director Ashley, POI-2231-1 has been taken into indefinite Foundation containment and classified as SCP-2231-4. The basis for this decision is the unacceptable risk to classified information (amongst other things, the existence of the Foundation and Site 17) should SCP-2231-4 be successfully concealing, or eventually develop, a symmetrical mental connection to SCP-2231-1 through -3 as they share with SCP-2231-4.
SCP-2231-4 is to be kept ignorant of the existence of SCP-2231-1 through -3. Researcher Patel will continue in his current capacity as New-Containment-Introduction (NCI) lead for SCP-2231.
Addendum 2231-4: Object Neutralization
SCP-2231-4 was fatally wounded by security personnel after assaulting a guard as it was escorted from interview room H203. Appropriate disciplinary actions are being considered for the offending security personnel. Review of security footage of SCP-2231-1 through -3 at the moment of expiration of SCP-2231-4 show all three instances simultaneously collapsing. Following medical examination SCP-2231-1, -2, and -3 showed a complete cessation of higher brain function, and have been moved to the medical wing of Site 17 and placed on life support.
SCP-2231 reclassified as neutralized.
