SCP-702 in an inert state.

Item #: SCP-702

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-702 is to be contained in a crate lined with mundane packing materials. The crate is to be kept in a standard security locker with armed guards at all times. If the crate is breached, under no circumstances are any personnel to touch the SCP without wearing a pair of standard insulated gloves and an insulated coat. The slated destruction of SCP-702 is indefinitely postponed due to the unknown effects on SCP-702-1 and possible containment breaches.

Description: SCP-702 is a simple red vase of unknown design. Human contact with the vase causes an entity (herein referred to as SCP-702-1) to emerge from the vase and initiate contact with the individual coming into contact with SCP-702. The method of detection seems to be thermal in nature, as SCP-702-1 emerges when contact is established through thin, heat-transmitting materials, but does not emerge when contact is established through an insulated material. SCP-702-1 is a sapient gas-based life form that communicates through coordinated vibration of the air around it. A sample has been impossible to gather due to SCP-702-1's tendency to react violently to anyone coming into physical contact with it. Upon emergence, SCP-702-1 greets the subject establishing contact with SCP-702, and attempts to persuade the subject to give it a gift. If the subject refuses, the entity [DATA EXPUNGED] and takes a single object or part from the remains. Some objects are rejected by SCP-702-1, claiming that it "already has one", and demands a new gift, returning the offered object. If SCP-702-1 accepts the offered gift, it returns an object of roughly equal value to the subject and disappears. See Experiments 702-001 through 702-004 for a transcript of successful transactions with SCP-702.

Subject D-5567 was issued a freshly sharpened #2 Ticonderoga pencil.

Subject D-5567: So, I just touch it?
Dr. █████████: That's right, D-5567. You have the object ready, correct?

Subject D-5567: Yeah, 's just a damn pencil, don't really see what I'm gonna do with it, though.

Dr. █████████: Don't worry about that, just touch the vase.

Dr. █████████: Go ahead, 1010, we haven't got all day.

Subject D-1010: No, what's it gonna do? You gotta tell me first, doc!

Dr. █████████: Subject D-1010, I remind you that deviation from protocol will result in immediate termination by Foundation security staff.

SCP-702-1: I have only a short time, slow one, and you waste it. Do you desire trade, or no?

Subject D-1010: Tra- you want this fucked up statue?

Dr. █████████: SCP-702-1 appears to be considering the statue and is emitting a humming sound.

[Note: Harmonics testing later indicated a frequency associated with deep thought.]

Subject D-8133: Awright, doc, don't get your panties in a knot.

Dr. █████████: Just proceed with the experiment, D-8133.

[a sound of rushing air is heard]

Subject D-8133: Here, take this and let me outta here.

Dr. █████████: SCP-702-1 is emitting a hum, as in Experiment 702-003.

[Note: Harmonics testing later indicated a frequency associated with fear.]

SCP-702-1: Absolutely not. I am tempted, but I cannot possibly afford that. Good day.

[an intake of air is heard]

Subject D-8133: So, uh, can I leave?

Dr. █████████: Absolutely, Subject D-8133. Head to the debriefing room, and well done.
