Item # : SCP-260-FR

Threat level: Yellow

Class: Safe

Special containment procedures: SCP-260-FR has to be contained in a secured storefront triggering an alarm in case of attempt to damage it or of forced opening. Any experimentation including SCP-260-FR must be subject to a request to a three or more level personnel. Apart from any experimentation, members of personnel performing any action on SCP-260-FR must be equiped with a helmet with a visor. The experiments on D-classes must be observing continuously by surveillance camera. Since the last observations, the experiments on SCP-260-FR have been suspended to prevent any aggravation possible of SCP-260-FR’s effects.

Any person who underwent the effects of SCP-260-FR must be placed under medical surveillance after taking a Class-A amnesic and msut be observed throughout two hours. If the individual’s mental health improves, he will be considered as sound. If not, the individual must be eliminated.

Description: SCP-260-FR is a wooden model of a lighthouse, 52 cm high, weighing approximately 3 kg and having a diameter of 15 cm. The beacon has two floors barred with blue and white, and a light at the top, represented by a red wooden cylinder. The lighthouse is along with a sculpted decor representing a turbulent sea with five characters (named SCP-260-FR-1) swimming against the waves to return to the beacon.

The observation of SCP-260-FR-1 across a storefront, a glass or even a surveillance camera will not trigger any effect. Any individual observing directly SCP-260-FR feels different substancial effects. The individual seems to be persuaded to be in the sea and loses any contact with the real environment. He perceived also a bright light coming from the light of SCP-260-FR.

For all the subject, the effects’ experiment leads to:

  • A strong feeling of fear and confusion
  • A reduction of body’s heat
  • A unexplained presence of water in the lungs
  • A strong craving to approach the light

The individual seems to perceive a sense of safety in the light. When he notices the source, the subject clamps with all his strength the beacon and stays in this position, even until dying of exhaustion, without the action of an other person. The SCP-260-FR’s effect can be stopped by putting to sleep the individual.

The most of the individuals are subject to numerous psychoses after being under the SCP-260-FR’s effects. They stay in a constant state of fear and distress and have a strong willing to see again the light, even being able to use violence in order to reach the SCP-260-FR’s containment room.

The use of Class-A amnesic can, for 75% of individuals, put an end to the psychoses. A theory according to that the subject’s psychiatric background influences the percentage is studying. Experiments showed a strange loss of weigh and of oxygen in the subject’s blood. This loss is proportional to the time passed with SCP-260-FR. It must be noticed that since these observations, the light producing by SCP-260-FR seems to have a higher intensity and a different colour, from light yellow to a strong red. It can be possible that SCP-260-FR evolves with humans’ contact.

SCP-260-FR has been discovered in 07/27/2016 in the city of ████, in a family home where the five inhabitants were dead after being under SCP-260-FR’s effects. The presence of packaging and a cake showed that the family may celebrate a birthday which was the father’s one, after investigation.
