SCP-4081-1 during an SCP-4081 event.

Item #: SCP-4081

Object Class: Neutralized

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-4081-1 is currently located at the Brighton Sports Gymnasium. No SCP-4081 events have occurred since 2/13/18. Surveillance of Brighton High School is no longer permitted at this time. The following Special Containment Procedures are no longer valid, but have been archived on this document for historical reference.

Description: SCP-4081 is an anomalous spacial event that may occur to an individual entering SCP-4081-1, a hallway located within the Brighton Sports Gymnasium in Positano, California. SCP-4081-1 runs longitudinally along the length of the gymnasium for one hundred meters. SCP-4081-1 contains doors at its east and west endpoints, as well as side doors connecting to adjacent rooms.

The following three criteria must be met for an SCP-4081 event to initialize:

  • The individual must enter SCP-4081-1 through the doors at either endpoint1.
  • The individual must be alone when entering SCP-4081-1.
  • The individual has not participated in an SCP-4081 event at any prior point.

When an SCP-4081 event starts, a white light will illuminate underneath the doors at the other endpoint of SCP-4081-1. The doors the affected individual entered will be locked, and no other doors will be accessible. To complete an SCP-4081 event, the affected person must walk down SCP-4081-1 to the other end and exit through the glowing doors. The affected individual will not be visible to any other persons looking into SCP-4081-1.

After the completion of an SCP-4081 event, the individual will find themselves exiting out the doors originally used to access SCP-4081-1, rather than the other end. Individuals cannot participate in a successful SCP-4081 event more than once.

SCP-4081-2 is the designation for a series of notes referencing the SCP-4081 phenomenon. All known SCP-4081-2 instances have been printed on flexible off-white paper with a slightly soft texture, and contain the same typeface. The message printed on these instances will vary based on the context of their discovery. SCP-4081-2 instances will manifest instantly, and if affixed to a wall, will be taped on with translucent office tape of unknown brand.


Discovery: On 2/5/2018, the Foundation was notified of the existence of SCP-4081 through routine social media surveillance. Instances of SCP-4081-2 were discovered taped to surfaces within heavily trafficked areas of Brighton High School. All instances described the process required to initialize SCP-4081 events. Foundation operatives removed all known SCP-4081-2 instances, and coerced the Brighton faculty to release a statement referring to the messages as pranks. Study of SCP-4081 began on 2/7/2018.

The following is the first known variant of SCP-4081-2.


Testing Logs: The following is an incomplete list of experiments regarding SCP-4081 events.

Following Test 4081-14, no more SCP-4081 events have occurred within SCP-4081-1 despite multiple initiation attempts. SCP-4081 has been reclassified as Neutralized on 2/27/2018.


Addendum 01: On 3/4/2018, instances of SCP-4081-2 appeared within Brighton High School, affixed to surfaces in large numbers with industrial glue. All instances contained the same message revealing the existence of the Foundation to civilians. Mobile Task Force Kappa-28 ("School's Out") was dispatched to destroy all SCP-4081-2 instances.

The SCP-4081-2 variant involved is transcribed below.

Due to the reveal of personal information regarding Site Director Lutz, the incident has been classified as a Level 4 Information Breach. Site Director Lutz has been relocated to a classified location following this event. Class-A amnestics was administered to Brighton students and staff through the cafeteria food and drinking water.


Addendum 02: On 3/7/2018, a large number of SCP-4081-2 instances appeared in multiple locations within Brighton High School, affixed to walls with an unknown substance. MTF Kappa-28 was deployed again to contain the information breach. However, its members reported difficulty in removing the SCP-4081-2 instances, and resorted to removing sections of wall with the instances still affixed. The variant of SCP-4081-2 involved is transcribed below.

Researcher Terrance Tsai and Dr. Paul Shinohara have been relocated to separate classified locations following this event. Class-A amnestics were administered by plane over Brighton High School, and replacement walls without SCP-4081-2 instances were installed.


Addendum 03: On 3/8/2018, instances of SCP-4081-2 appeared affixed to a majority of surfaces within Brighton High School. These instances were found attached to books, desks, ceilings, and floors inside every room in the school. MTF Kappa-28 was dispatched to close off Brighton High School to all civilians, with a cover story released. Every instance of SCP-4081-2 involved stated the following:

Five individuals were discovered in Class-D containment chambers at Site-48. All individuals were students of Brighton High School, and none could recall their method of arrival. All five individuals were administered Class-A amnestics and released. It is of note that security footage displayed the individuals spontaneously manifesting in their chambers.

Members of the Positano Police Department arrived at Site-48 and attempted to arrest all Foundation personnel present on charges of child kidnapping and burglary. The responding officers were successfully administered amnestics and released. Following this event, an emergency meeting was initialized involving all Site-48 personnel. During this meeting, an instance of SCP-4081-2 manifested at the meeting table, and read as follows:

On 3/9/2018, Brighton High School was reopened with the SCP-4081-2 instances still present. All removed surfaces were returned and re-installed with the SCP-4081-2 instances affixed. Researcher Xiao made a public apology on behalf of the Foundation within SCP-4081-1 addressed to the "Keep Brighton Functioning Committee". No response was heard. Surveillance of Brighton High School was ceased in its entirety.

Site-48 was put on lockdown as a precaution, and all personnel were moved to classified locations.


Addendum 04: On 3/14/2018, the corpse of D-8358 spontaneously manifested within the safe room of Site Director Lutz at 7:14 AM. The corpse was missing its skin. An instance of SCP-4081-2 was taped to its forehead.

Following this event, all stored instances of SCP-4081-2 revealing personnel information have had their messages erased through unknown means, leaving blank notes. All known SCP-4081-2 instances located within Brighton High School have vanished. Site-48 was reopened, and all relocated personnel were cleared to return to their residences.

Close analysis of SCP-4081-2 instances reveal them to be partially constructed out of processed human skin. All recovered instances are an exact DNA match of D-8358, including instances manifested before his disappearance.
