Item #: SCP-2743
Object Class: Keter
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-2743-A is to be contained in a small impact resistant safe. SCP-2743-B is to be kept in a small jewelry box fitted with noise detectors. For the duration of any future Petrushka events, a remote-operated drone is to locate SCP-2743-B and record the piece played and any effects observed. Personnel assigned to SCP-2743-A are to report any occurrences of 'Rite of Spring' as soon as possible, and engage in interview with SCP-2743-A immediately.
Due to the destruction of Site-██ and the loss of SCP-████, and SCP-████, SCP-2743 is to be contained in a specialized site located in a remote area.
During an interview with SCP-2743-A, any topics regarding its amputation, family, accident, and school attendance are prohibited from discussion, to prevent any decay of SCP-2743-A's currently healthy psyche.
Description: SCP-2743-A is a small, handmade, ballerina doll. It is made entirely out of modeling clay, with a coat of faded acrylic paint. A cavity is visible in the chest, painted crimson red on the interior. SCP-2743-B is a small clay heart with visible degradation of the surface. A brass bead is affixed to the superior vena cava. This bead has been known to unhinge during a Petrushka event.
During a Petrushka event, SCP-2743-B will begin to project a piece of classical music from the brass bead. Upon the start of the music, SCP-2743-A will animate, and perform a dance, which will vary between pieces of music produced. This dance has been observed to distort surrounding space in order for SCP-2743-A to optimize a route to SCP-2743-B, with additional effects present based on the music played (See Incident Report). SCP-2743-A has yet to successfully make contact with SCP-2743-B in Foundation custody, with the music ceasing immediately before SCP-2743-A makes contact. SCP-2743-A will then reappear back at its previous location.
There have been three occurrences of the piece 'Rite of Spring' during a Petrushka event in Foundation custody to date. During an occurrence of the piece SCP-2743-A will become sentient and sapient. SCP-2743-A seems to regard these events as "waking up from a dream" and has shown memory of previous conversations. SCP-2743-A recalls at least six instances of the Rite of Spring prior to its acquisition by the Foundation, though it refuses to provide any details regarding said performances. SCP-2743-A currently holds a delusion that its legs are amputated, and refuses to divulge any further information regarding the circumstances behind the amputation.
SCP-2743-A has a highly unpredictable personality, and has been shown to respond to similar situations in varying ways. SCP-2743-A's effects have been shown to weakly correlate with the overall emotional state, with hostile interactions resulting in effects of significantly higher intensity. SCP-2743-A is pending assessment for manic-depressive bipolar disorder.
SCP-2743-A has given few details about its past, with the only relevant material pertaining to the attendance of the Satriyomnyomf Conservatory, a defunct arts academy outside of Chelyabinsk, Russia. (See Interview 2743-A-3). Any attempts to discover more concerning this organization have been unsuccessful. SCP-2743-A has also provided a few details about its father, claiming that he was a highly skilled codebreaker during World War II.
Addendum-3: SCP-2743 was recovered in the center of a large crater near Chelyobinsk, Siberia in 1954 by personnel investigating reports of a large explosion coming from just outside the town. Along with SCP-2743, a metal safe containing several letters was found. Handwriting matches ████ █████, a resident of Smolensk, Russia who was found deceased via suicide by gunshot in 1953.
