Item #: SCP-3498

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Instances of SCP-3498-1 are to be contained in standard airtight containment cells. Personnel requesting to interact with instances of SCP-3498-1 are required to wear class-4 biohazard suits. Amnestics use may be granted to personnel after interacting with instances of SCP-3498-1. At least 12 vials containing SCP-3498 solution are to be kept in a secure cryogenic locker in the office of Dr. Eckert Letner. In the event of a breach of containment, class-A biohazard protocol is to be initiated.

Description: SCP-3498 is an anomalous form of bloodborne virus that alters the psychological and physical makeup of infected humans. SCP-3498 will enter a of 1-2 week incubation period upon infecting an individual. After the incubation period, individuals infected by SCP-3498 will begin to experience symptoms such as fever, nausea, dissociative amnesia, internal pain, and decreased motor ability. Upon development of symptoms, individuals infected by SCP-3498 are then designated SCP-3498-1.

About 2-5 days after the onset of symptoms, instances of SCP-3498-1 will begin to experience the long term effects of SCP-3498. SCP-3498 will begin to transform internal organs into miniaturized structures of Ptolemaic Egyptian architecture. Organs transformed by SCP-3498 will be either regurgitated or forcibly removed by SCP-3498-1. Despite the loss of major organs, SCP-3498-1 instances will remain alive.

SCP-3498-1 instances will enter a state of obsessive behavior about 2 weeks after infection, attempting to arrange removed organs in patterns resembling urban planning.

Addendum-1: The first known record of instances of SCP-3498-1 was noted by Edward Linderbough in 1908. Linderbough documented in his journal his encounter of a group of natives outside the Temple of Dakka, near the present day Aswan Dam.

Following Linderbough's departure, four vials of SCP-3498 infected blood were frozen and put into Edward Linderbough's personal collection. Following Lindenbough's death in 1913, the vials were successfully brought into Foundation custody.

Addendum-2: In 1997 an outbreak of SCP-3498 was discovered by Foundation personnel. The infected individuals were successfully brought into custody, and a full scale documentation process of the symptoms and effects of SCP-3498 began and was completed in 1998.

Approximately 5 months after the outbreak, fragments of the original mosaics at the Temple of Dakka taken by Linderbough surfaced.

The tournaments fierce(?) the prize would be many concubines. When Menehep was amused the buildings (villages?) would be spared his sadistic wrath…

Addendum-3: Instances of SCP-3498-1 have begun developing hostile behavior towards other instances of SCP-3498-1. Instances of SCP-3498-1 will now actively attempt to locate and attack other instances of SCP-3498-1. SCP-3498-1 will attempt to breach containment in order to attack other instances. SCP-3498-1 will vocalize messages directed at other instances at all times except during discharge of affected organs. A list of recorded vocalizations is available below.
