Item #: SCP-5273
Object Class: KETER
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-5273 is to be contained in a standard medium-size animal enclosure, with security cameras placed in the four corners of the ceiling. Recessed LED lighting fixtures are to be left on at all times, and only dimmed during rest cycles Enclosure should be supplied with an assortment of leafy flora every three days; all waste material is to be incinerated. Climate control should keep the enclosure consistently between 6'-10' Celsius.
SCP-5273 should be given distilled water and fed a supplemented diet including a wide range of fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, in addition to the leafy flora consistent within the enclosure. Any leftover fruit or vegetables must be removed from the enclosure after no more than three days. Personnel are not to bring food into SCP-5273’s enclosure that they do not intend to give to it.
A variety of enrichment toys are to be provided on a daily basis. These toys should include be as varied as possible, to further ascertain SCP-5273's anomalous intellect.
Description: SCP-5273 is a diminutive member of the Sauropod species Diplodocus carnegii. The subject measures 118cm from nose to tail, 8.2 kg in weight, it stands 28cm at the shoulder. It has a generally tan coloration to it's scales, with light yellow stripes along the back. The subject has downy feathers over much of it's body, & a feathered crest from it's head to the tip of it's tail, with coloration changing from a red/yellow in the summer to almost white in the winter.
After Action Report - Library Investigation utilizing Paranormal Contractors/MTF Assessement of SCP-5273
Compiled by Dr. Bright
Initial Investigation: The public library of Reno, Nevada (USA) has had copies of [REDACTED] appear on the shelves from time to time, with deletrious consequences for the local populace. Going forward with OPERATION: SCAPEGOAT, we have sent a small number of "Paranormal Contractors" (See File [CLASSIFIED]), to handle the issue for us. Additionally, Dr. Conway has provided us with SCP-5273 for testing in future MTF collaborations.
Observation: As expected, the Paranormal Contractors have taken to SCP-5273 immediately. Note to self: If SCP-5273 goes rogue mid-mission, change designation from EUCLID to KETER. These [REDACTED] phenomena could prove beyond current containment protocols if they prove more common place. While the Paranormal Contractors show the usual diversity we have come to expect from their lot, it will be of signifigant interest if they try to escape with [REDACTED] or even take SCP-5273 with them when they return to their paralell causality. An excellent opportunity to test the subcutaneous tracking module implanted in SCP-5273 as well as study it's anomalous qualities with further stress tests.
Outcome: The Paranormal Contractors have returned, with a copy of [REDACTED] as well as SCP-5273. It would seem they lost one of their number to [REDACTED]. They seem to agree that SCP-5273 was quite useful during the mission, even somehow having divined it's informal designation. For it's part, SCP-5273 was compliant with orders & returned to on-site Containment without issue.
Conclusion: The anomalous qualities of SCP-5273 have proven effective in the field. I suggest we move to the next phase of MTF Operations with it.
Having proven itself in the field, SCP-5273 has been awarded better containment conditions, allowed to keep small items such as toys for enrichment, as well as the sweater given to him by one of the Paranormal Contractors. The Containment has been outfitted with a variety of leafy plants, as well as climate control to keep temperature relatively low.
Ongoing study shows SCP-5273 demonstrates unusual intelligence, possibly human level. Tests to ascertain the extent of this intelligence have been inconclusive, but seems to involve simultaeneous symbiosis with the fore & ancillary brains. Both brains show remarkable density, however this in itself does not entirely explain the anomalous mental ability & psychokinetic phenomena. It would seem some neuron process is quantum. Most likely a continuing side effect to the Temporal Radiation exposure in the egg revivification process.
SCP-5273 always exhibits low levels of this Temporal Radiation, which increases as it is stressed. It is this Temporal Radiation which causes the Psychokinetic display most often visible during the anomalous episodes. These visible are displays usually composed of static electricity as local Space/Time desynchronizes with the area of effect. Minor telekinetic realeases are not uncommon, causing small objects to levitate or SCP-5273 to itself rise a few centimeters off any surface it is resting on.
It should be noted that these Psychokinetic Outbursts seem to be quite traumatic to SCP-5273, with encephalograms detailing extreme stress. The cause of this response is still unkown.
In closure, SCP-5273 remains anomalous, but potentially useful to The Foundation going forward.
After Action Report - Speciemen Retrieval utilizing Paranormal Contractors/with assistance from SCP-5273 & SCP-2652
Compiled by Dr. Bright
Initial Investigation: MTF teams have tracked [REDACTED] to a Wal Mart Super Center in [REDACTED]. The rogue SCP has been contained with minimal casualties thus far, & in accordance with OPERATION: SCAPEGOAT we are deploying Paranormal Contractors in combination with anomalous SCP's approved for field operations. If results are as consistent as previous tests, we may be able to move OPERATION: SCAPEGOAT to the next phase.
Observation: It would seem we may have over estimated the capabilities of the Paranormal Contractors somewhat. After multiple encounters over several hoiurs, they seemed unable to locate & capture [REDACTED]. They did manage to rescue two of the casualties (Amnestics were deployed after interrogation performed by Cpl. Lin). It would behoove the Foundation to track & possibly request specific personnel from [CLASSIFIED] in the future. It would appear, as in other observations, that Paranormal Contractors are selected at random, with no briefing of the causality they are working in.
Outcome: The mission proved successful, with no action required by MTF agents. However, as noted in my observations the Paranormal Contractors were not especially helpful it would seem. The bulk of the mission appears to have fallen to our dispatched SCP's which they performed admirably. In particular, SCP-5273 seemed unusally cognizant of the location of [REDACTED]. More research into it's Perceptual capacity is warranted.
Conclusion: Our anomalous assets have outperformed Paranormal Contractors. That bodes well for the future of OPERATION: SCAPEGOAT.
File: Biological Anomalies in SCP-5273 - Temporal Displaced Diplodocus carnegii
Compiled by Dr. Conway
Further blood & serum tests show that the specimen is warm blooded, as Paleotologists have suspected for some time now. More unusual, is the dense downy feathers clearly not found in the fossil record. The subject is well suited to cold climates, with "plumage" providing insulation combined with internal adaptation composed of insulating fat membranes.
This poses a quandary, as seized data from the raid on [CLASSIFIED] where SCP-5273 was initially located suggest that the trans-temporal revivification was performed on a fossil egg of Diplodocus carnegii as opposed to a "Pygmy" variant as yet undiscovered. The notation suggest that Temporal Radiation is responsible for both the stunted growth as well as the other anomalous features...yet if that is so, does that imply that the great Sauropods were an Artic variety? It is hard to imagine a snow covered landscape providing sufficient foliage to support the growth of herds of massive obligate herbivores.
One of many puzzle pieces hinted at by the existence of the specimen. I suspect form of river born kelp or similar fast growing aquatic vegetation may be the answer. That, or we must assume the notes of [CLASSIFIED] are faulty & the specimen is exactly as it appears: a Pygmy Sauropod. I am inclined to discard this hypothesis with the obvious anomalous qualities displayed by SCP-5273.
Conclusion: More research is required. I submit a request for increased funding with this report. With the proven capacity of SCP-5273 to operate in field operations, it behooves the 05 Council to make an intensive scientific inquiry on the specimen.
File: Encephelographic Recording on SCP-5273 - Temporal Displaced Diplodocus carnegii
Compiled by Dr. Conway
In keeping with our research initiative, we have begun encephelograph recordings of SCP-5273 both at regular intervals (feeding, erichment, stress tests) as well as during sleep cycles. This process is complicated by the neural bridge between the forebrain & hindbrain, & requires special equipment & training for accurate results.
We continue to find anomalous neural activity, especially during sleep cycles. Occasionally, these bouts of increased activity are paralell with increased readings of Temporal Radiation detectable through [CLASSIFIED]. On [REDACTED], we found a most turbulent episode recorded, as well as found SCP-5273 in an agitated, fearful state. The usual methods of calming SCP-5273 were largely ineffective, & we reluctantly turned to Sedation for a further physical exam.
Noticable lesions were present in the neural ganglia, as well as increased levels of anabolic acid build up in muscular tissue. This is potentially very concerning, as previous biopsy has suggested the Temporal Radiation present in SCP-5273 may be leading to uncontrolled, possibly cancerous mutation. When roused, SCP-5273 was listless, & continued making distressed vocalizations. It is possible that there are psychological factors at play with the progression of the mutation or Psychokinetic episodes.
Conclusion: It is my belief that SCP-5273 should be removed from MTF operations until such a time as we can ascertain the potential Physiological & Psychological ramifications of it's anomalous capacities in high stress environments. Risking the specimen could close down several lines of invaluable research.
Re: Encephalograph Testing
From the Office of Dr. Bright
CLEARANCE: Reasearch Personnel directly involved with Containment Protocols for SCP-5273
MEMO: Research Intent
While certain more...liberal...personnel may see the opportunity to study a Time Displaced organism as a chance to indulge your scientific curiosity, allow me to remind you that the security of Consensus Reality increasingly depends on the Foundation utilizing it's Anomalous Resources to counter bad actors through out society as well as throughout quantum dispered reality. The mere existence of these Paranormal Contractors implies the forces both willing & able to disrupt our delicate status quo. We must be is a position to effectively deploy our Anomalous Resources without qualm, hesitation, or sentiment.
This is especially true of SCP-5273, with it's growing capacity to alter local Time/Space. The research of this mutation & it's potential replication is of critical importance to the security of not just the Foundation but the world as we know it. If that means that we must risk the "Goose that laid the Golden Egg," then we must do so with a bold hand, for to be indesciscive at this critical time could spell disaster for us all.
Reaffirming the purpose of our reasearch is occasionally required, & in this case I wish to leave no doubt: SCP-5273 WILL continue to assist in MTF operations. Stress tests of it's anomalous capacities WILL continue (with D-Class only, however. Good agents are hard to come by). We will not speak of this again, & personnel who wish to go above me to Ethics will find themselves reassigned.
To drive this point home, the following "Enrichment" activities are canceled:
"Playing with the Dino"
I am sure you all understand the importance of this work.
-from the office of Dr. Bright
The following Containment Violations have been recorded for SCP-5273 (Time Displaced Diplodocus carnegii)
-Unauthorized Equipment in Containment: (Description: Virtual Reality Goggles, Attached Computer in Briefcase)
-Unattended Equipment in Containment: (Description: Virtual Reality Goggles, Attached Computer in Briefcase)
-Unauthorized Expermiment: (No Virtual Reality tests or studies are on the schedule regarding SCP-5273)
These are serious matters. Research or Security staff found smuggling in equipment, violating containment, making any attempt to make unnaproved copies of data or recordings of an SCP, contaminating an SCP outside of approved Enrichment protocol, or attempting to breach Containment will be punished to the full extent specified in Section IV Article iii of the Foundation Employee Handbook.
All staff are to report suspicious activity of co-workers regarding this matter to Class IV Security Personnel.
All staff involved in the proper Security Containment Protocols for 5273 are officially on Notice. There will be a copy of this report sent to the Security Director, The Ethics Director, the Site Manager, & if deemed neccesary, to the 05 Council. If any staff have inside knowledge or were otherwise culpable in this event, they are advised to come forward immediately. There will be no leniency for anyone deemed to be acting in a subversive or otherwise duplicitous manner.
Containment Protocols will be increased until this matter is resolved, as follows:
-Any entry into containment of SCP-5273 will be accompanied by Class IV Security Personnel.
-Any Entry logged into Containment will be recorded & a copy of that recodrding will be emailed automatically to an independent Security Reviw council.
That is all.
Recording of Ethics Interview Re Containment Incident SCP - 5273 - 001
Interviewer: Dr. Conway, a pleasure. Please make yourself comfortable. Now, as a veteran researcher, I don't need to tell you about the signifigance of the recent contamination, so please try to answer my questions as completely as possible. Let's begin: Your name is Archibald Louis Conroy, yes?
Dr. Conroy: ...yes, but know one has called me "Archibald" in more years than you've bee-
Interviewer: Yes, I'm certain. For the records, you understand? I'm certain a man of your impressive resume understands the importance of a few "control" questions, yes?
Dr. Conroy: ...I suppose so.
Interviewer: I see you have PHD's from Cambridge...Bilogy, Microbiology, & Paleontology...very nice. Ah, & you interned with the Foundation on site with SCP-1265...yes, glowing comments from Site Management as well. Excellent. After which you were transferred to [REDACTED] & assigned to SCP-5273 explicitly for your expertise with Dinosauria. What can you tell me of your reasearch.
Dr. Conroy: Well...as you know, SCP-5273 was captured near Central Park, NY, NY less than a year ago. Sightings of a local Cryptid had made the papers, & teams were sent to assess the situation, ultimately resulting in the capture & containment of the specimen. Fortunately, while sitings were numerous, only one civillian appears to have had extensive contact with SCP-5273, a half-blind shoe Cobbler that was convinced the specimen was a stray cat. MTF perssonel deemed it unnesecary to administer amnestics, as the Old Man never truly identified the specimen.
Interviewer: Ah, yes...I have that file...Guiseppe Provenzano...& that was the individual who gave SCP-5273 the soubriquet: Guido?
Dr. Conroy: Uh...as per protocol, research staff only uses SCP-Designations Numbers to refer to Anomalous Objects.
Recording of Ethics Interview Re Containment Incident SCP - 5273 - 002
Interviewer: Of course, of course, I am aware of the naming conventions, blind testing, research protocols, etc, etc. However, I have several recorded files where staff under your direction have used that name to refer to SCP-5273. Would you like to hear them?
Dr. Conroy: ...that...uh, won't be necessary.
Interviewer: Ah, then you can explain how your research staff has come into this prohibited information? While I understand the subject demonstrates multiple Psychokinetic Phenomena, it is our understanding the SCP-5273 shows no Telepathic capability. What am I missing, Doctor?
Dr. Conroy: Well...it's true that beyond the established record of Vocalizations, SCP-5273 cannot communicate in any meaningful fashion. However, as it's Psychokinetic properties have been refined, at the explicit insistence of Dr Bright I might add, the subject began...writing.
Interviewer: SCP-5273 can write? What did it say?
Dr. Conroy: Mainly, it told us it's name. The unofficial one mentioned previously. While we knew SCP-5273 could understand complex commands, we had not guessed it had sufficient sapience to not only grasp what we were saying but learn how to read! Currently, we suspect it's capacity is equal to a child, mostly using words it perceives in Containment, Euclid, Keter, so on...but it has begun to grasp how to put these words together to communicate: of that we are certain.
Interviewer: Hmmm...comprehension equivalent to a human child already? Your research suggests the subject is less than 4 years of age.
Dr. Conroy: Yes, as far as we can understand it. However the process used to revitalize the egg SCP-5273 was hatched from effectively created a quantum tunnel, bringing the specimen forward through a shared causality. We can only guess on the side effects, the actual time experienced by the embryonic fetus. For the researchers, it was the flip of a switch: for the Embryo, millions of years passed...
-To be Continued-
A shaky video shot from a helicopter shows huge herds of animals tromping over fields & blocking roads, before focusing on a young woman, clearly a reporter:
"...Yes, thank you John. You can see below me, the herds of cattle, pigs, horses, various fowl...even some dogs & cats. The exact number is hard to pin down, but seems to be growing."
Cut to an Anchorman
"Cyndy, have authorities made any guesses about this incident?"
Back to Reporter, trying to hold her hair out of her face
"No John. No explanation has been forthcoming yet, though severl epedemioligists suspect a break out of "Mad Cow" disease or some other highly virulent, zoonotic agent. The speed at which new animals become infected, joining the herd is startling...entire farms & dairy centers have been deserted after the apparently infected animals pass through."
The Anchorman wears a mask of worried concern
"I understand the national Guard has been activated to corral the animals, Cyndy? Should the folks at home be worried?"
The Camera records the animals steadily moving deeper into a heavily wooded forest
"Yes, Police, National Guard, & Forest Rangers are all cooperating to get to the bottom of this John. So far, people are advised to keep their distance from the mass of animals, even when pets or domestic animals can be identified. Report animals behaving strangely to 311 immediately, & wait for further instructions. Other that that, we are still waiting to see how the situation devel - Oh, John we are being instructed by the National Guard to clear the airspace."
The Camera cuts to the Anchorman again
"Alright Cyndy, thanks for the update on this evolving situation. You stay safe out there. Well, we can only wait & see what happens next; You heard it here first, on Grenn Bay channel 42, Action News!"
BRIEFING ROOM 4
MSF Team - Delta 13
Dr. Bright: "Yes, at ease everyone. At ease. Yes, even you Corporal. All here? Good. Have your coffee? Great...just great. This briefing regards your mission to capture a rogue SCP. Specifically, SCP-5273. Yes, the Dinosaur. What? No it's not full size, Private. Did you even read the file? No, the Time Displaced Diplodocus carnegii is apparently a pygmy variant. We typically transport it in this lead lined cat carrier. However, you should not let your guard down just because it weight is measured in kilograms rather than tons - SCP-5273 is a KETER class anomaly, & can prove dangerous, both directly,"
(Projector shows images of the aftermath of Stress Tests)
"As well as indirectly through exposure to unique anomalous radiation emitted by the specimen at all times. What? Yes - your standard issue MTF armor & gear will completely shield you from this radiation. Of course. Safety first, yes? Moving on."
(An image of SCP-5273 appears on the projector. There is an "Awwwww" from the assembled agents, quickly stifled. Dr. Bright indicated an area in the sternum with a laser pointer)
"We have a standard issue quantum tracing device implanted here. Recent disruptions have shown that SCP-5273 has vanished from the time/space point we had last tracked it to, meaning it may have gained greater use of it's anomalous capacities or interference from other agents. Regardless, this dimension jumping means we must capture the specimen ALIVE at the earliest opportunity."

Security Clearance IV: Classified
Singularity Identification Nexus device
The S.I.N. chip
A question often asked is, despite the best efforts of our Secure - Contain - Protect protocols, what do we do in the event of an escaped anomalous Object? KETER or even EUCLID class anomalies can escape either through unexplained interaction of anomalous attributes, interference by subversive elements, or even flawed Containment protocols. When this happens, the S.I.N. chip is an essential tool to quickly locate & recapture anomalies.
The S.I.N. chip is a small tracking chip typically implented or affixed to an anomalous object. It is a triangular device composed of non-magnetic polymers measuring 1.1 mm is width & only 20 nm in depth. The tracking of the S.I.N. chip relies on a quantum entanglment with [REDACTED] found in various locations accessible to those Foundation operatives with a IV Scecurity Clearance or higher.
As a quantum entangled singularity, the S.I.N. chip requires no power to function, & is easily tracked via [REDACTED] even across interdimensional barriers. The tiny size, durability, & versatility of the S.I.N. chip allows for easy tracking of anomalous assets & rogue SCP alike, as it emits no radio wave or discernible signal. Nor is it subject to "Jamming" or other interference. In every respect, the [REDACTED] are one & the same on the sub atomic level, allowing personnel to swiftly find & contain even the most elusive anomaly.
This information is considered Classified, & any unauthorized dispensation of these files will be considered a Class IV Security Breah, & will be dealt with accordingly.
Have a nice day!
The mansion is a busy place - a housewarming party for the ultra rich is always a stressful affair for the hired help: made somewhat more so when the celebrants invited are both more & less than human.
Strict non-disclosure agreements, naturally. Can't have anyone leaking info to the general public. So what if that Rembrandt in the south wing is supposedly in the Louve? Best not to ask questions. The man about the house doesn't care for questions from the help.
Egyptian Temple? Private Hospital?
Yeah, no questions here. No sir.
Yet, Monica has been given another task on top of changing sheets & washing linens.
Feed the dino.
To be fair, the new dino isn't even the only one here: the other one manages to feed itself rather spectacularly, & Monica is glad she doesn't have to deal with that. This one is little though, "smol" she thinks, & has clearly had a rough time, all bandaged up. Post operative, apparently. Has to take it's meds, eat some greens & apple slices when it can, clean out the bedding. It sleeps mostly, smells more like a bird than a lizard.
That is, when it's where it's supposed to be.
Monica hasn't reported it since the first time: went to get Laurence at Security, "It's gone!"
But when they went back to check it was right there, still asleep. That was embarassing.
Monica has figured it out pretty well now...open the door to fast, make noise in the hallway: it vanishes, like it was never there.
Where does it go? How does it do it?
At Jules Mansion, it's better not to ask questions.
I think my Boss is a Mobster or some shit.
I mean, it's not a bad gig really - be on call 24/7, fly the chopper or the swanky jet. Pays good, I get my own quarters outside the mansion, not bad at all. Might prefer a bit more notice than "You're flying to Greenland within the Hour" but hey; gotta make a living, am I right?
So sure, the Boss has us go to some swanky places, some really fucking weird places, never seems to have a plan that he shares with the rest of us...Visas? Flight Path?
Nah, none of that for the Boss. That's the help's job, sort that shit out so he don't have to.
So, I got the call to Greenland with short notice (as always), & I'm trying to get a flight path approved with Aviation while fueling the damn chopper at the same time...not as easy as I make it look, yeah? Well, that's when instead of the Boss one othe the other "The Help" comes around with...some kinda lizard? Big iguana?
What the fuck is this?
Turns out I'm gonna fly this lizard to Greenland, wait a bit, fly it back maybe after a day or two.
Maybe? Yeah...if it doesn't come back in a day or two, just come back.
Smuggling exotic pets maybe? I donno, but the damn lizard seems happy enough - they didn't even cage it, just told it to hop on for the ride.
Anyway, we did hit some weird turbulence going into the Arctic circle, crazy Northern Lights this year, for sure. Thought we were goners for a second, dials went all haywire, radio chatter was garbled...then it was all clear. Just like that.
Lizard hops out into the snow as happy as can be, comes back the next day.
"Project Log XI, local time...15/10/21, Foundation Listening Post #38802, Cross Dimensional Operation: Stray Cat, Dr. Archibald Conway reporting.
Seven weeks in this cabin...It would almost be a vacation, Alyssa - if not for the threat to my life on the last field operation!
I'm sure you are quite tired of hearing about it, but you were'nt put in a D-Class Jumpsuit with a gun to the back of your head! That damned Con Artist Bright..."Oh, Dr Conway was never at any real risk: we couldn't inform him of our intents so his fear would communicate itself properly to SCP-5273..."
Presposterous! Those men would have shot me dead Alyssa!
Would have, if SCP-5273 had not intervened.
Incredible, really: in a vast herd of sapient animals, SCP-5273 not only took command but actively resisted their recapture. I shouldn't be surprised that when faced with Bright's thugs & his ultimatum, he wouldn't back down. Saved my life, mark my words.
And now...now I'm waiting around trying to bring him back into the fold. SCP-5273 has effectively removed or destroyed their SIN chip, but we have used other assets to roughly locate it. A mansion nearby, that appears to be a holdout for these "Paranormal Contractors" that Bright is obsessed with.
Waiting around, basically in exile at this cottage...I am fit to go mad! Is this how the sapient SCPs feel? Trapped, with no recourse but to wither away or break containment?
Well...IF 5273 returns things will be different Alyssa! I have the 05 Council's written authorization on that!
If he comes home..."
(The Following documents were seized from the MTF raid on Site [REDACTED]
Phase 1 Notations: In our continuing efforts to master dilation of Time/Space fields, we selected a perfectly fossilized dinosaur egg belonging to the extinct genus Diplodocus carnegii. Using Dr. Li's Quantum Tunneler, we propose to “pull” the Temporal signature of the egg forward, potentially even producing a viable Jurassic specimen for study. With the success shown with Dr. Collier's chicken eggs last week, a more dramatic capture is in order.
Phase 2 Notations: Drinks are on me tonight! We have, against all odds, produced an unblemished dinosaur egg from a fossil! Think of the implications! After initial tests the egg is being sent over to biology for incubation. Dr. Collier attempted to kill the mood by muttering about the “side effects of temporal radiation exposure on the embryo of such a lengthy transition,” but I will not allow a curmudgeon hack to spoil my triumph! He can have his chickens; I have a dinosaur!
Phase 3 Notations: A year has passed since the successful hatching (See attached file – Subject: 437-B). It appears that some anomalies are present. One unusual fact is that the subject is apparently some kind of Arctic Dinosaur, evolved to withstand cold temperatures with fine downy feathers. More inexplicable is that Subject: 437-B does not appear to be growing any larger. While that is a blessing for my departments budget, it would appear that Temporal Radiation may have caused mutation in transit. Our Sauropod will likely remain a “Pygmy Diplodocus” for the rest of it's life. Additional testing will be required to locate additional mutations, if any.
Phase 4 Notations: It's baffling. At 2 years chronological age Subject: 437-B shows intelligence far surpassing most primates. Also a bit of a temper, that tail packs a wallop! It would seem there is some sort of symbiotic co-ordination between the primary brain & hind brain...were all Sauropods this intelligent? Or is this further sign of mutation? Either way, I can feel Subject: 437-B watching me as we perform the tests...as if it's scrutinizing my every move.
To Be Continued
Phase 5 Notations: Oh my God. How is this possible?! In a routine stress test (we had a Guard approach Subject: 437-B with a aggressive dog on a leash) the subject demonstrated extreme Psychokinetic Phenomena. Sensors showed Temporal Radiation spiking as...I don't know how to accurately describe it. After showing fear & making the distress calls we have recorded previously (See attached file – Subject: 437-B vocalizations), the subject seemed to to float off the floor a few centimeters, crackling with arcs of static electricity. The resulting wave of force pulverized both dog & handler. Subject: 437-B was immediately tranquilized & moved to High Security Block-L for evaluation...what was that??
Phase 6 Notations: After a year they have finally returned Subject: 437-B to my department for further research. Those animals at Tactical have obviously been hard on it; the subject is clearly more suspect of us than it was initially. We are required to take new precautions & protocols, but it seems Tactical has mapped out it's abilities as an isolated Psychokinetic Eruption. Good to know! Let's dive back in this research...
Phase 7 Notation: It escaped! Those idiots at tactical should have warned us! The security footage clearly shown it using some kind of telekinetic phenomena to escape it's enclosure! Oh my God...if the Director finds out I'll be ruined! We have to get that damn Dinosaur back ASAP!!
Epilogue: Subject: 437-B would escape the facility into the urban wilds of New York City. Intelligence expanding at a geometric pace, the small creature would prove surprisingly elusive, with rare reports of it being seen hopping through snow drifts in Central Park or tipping over Garbage Cans. The Temporal Mutations have inspired a Genius intellect, though of a decidedly inhuman nature. The creature adopted the sobriquet of “Guido,” after being named such by a mostly blind Italian shoe cobbler who believes him to be some sort of stray cat. At the moment, Guido attempts to evade recapture, see the world, & make sense of the vast panorama of time & space slowly unfolding in his mind.
Best Practices Regarding Decontamination of Temporal Radiation
Compiled by Dr. Conroy
We know that SCP-5273 always gives off low levels of radiation, with incidences peaking dutring Psychokinetic episodes. While the low-level exposure is largely harmless, we know that these outbursts contain potentially dangerous amounts of X-rays as well as wavelengths unique to SCP-5273 - these wavelengths have been dubbed "Temporal Radiation" for the observable effects they carry as well as the nature of the subject (Time Displaced Dipolodocus carnegii). We have recorded the following effects with Temporal Radiation exposure:
-Premature Aging: This is mostly seen in simple lifeforms, plants, micro-organisms, & similar, though structures can be effected as well. At the onset of a psychokinetic episode, plants have been observed to sprout, grow, then wither in seconds. Ferrous materials may oxidize, show metal fatigue, or even crack along existing fractures. Thus far, comlex lifeforms don't seem to suffer these effects, though some have reported arthritis-like joint pain after handling SCP-5273.
-Visible Phenomena: When Psychokinetic episodes occur, signifigant X-rays occur, often visible to the human eye as solid structures (bones, implants) are visible through the event horizon of the Psychokinetic Episode. This effect coincides with a discharge of static electricity powerful enough to produce arcs, ozone, & capable of damaging unshielded electronics.
We have found that standard Radiation Decontamination showers are only partially effective - a bombardment of tachyons has proven capable of discharging particles contaminated with TR & such emitters have become standard equipment for both decontamination procedures when subjects have been exposed to SCP-5273. The fire supression units in the Standard Animal Enclosure have been augmented with Tachyon emitters as well, & we have prudently decided to line the steel walls of the enclosure with lead while SCP-5273 was on MTF assignment.
BRIEFING ROOM 2
Debriefing SCP-5273 (Time Displaced Diplodocus carnegii)
(Conversation recorded from Observation room)
Intern: "If SCP-5273 has telikinetic properties, why are we using the button interface? Can't it just write down what happened?"
(A handler is asking questions of the small sauropod, which then runs to brightly colored buttons representing diffrent words & letters)
Dr. Conroy: "Due to the excesses of the last Site Administrator, SCP-5273 has developed a well deserved suspicion of authority, & has developed a rebellious streak. By making a game of the debriefing, we reduce the risk of deliberate misinformation. Besides, we'd be srubbing the debriefing room of Temporal Radiation for days after."
(A Handler asks Guido: "When you reached the nightclub, you found 4 instances of SCP-742-1?" Guido runs over to a green button, where a robot voice says: YES)
Dr. Conroy: "See? He likes the games. He also wants to help people, including us - be glad of that, since that little Sauropod can produce a psychokinetic shockwave capable of pulverising a sedan. All we have to do is make sure he stays stimulated, feels helpful."
("All instances were destroyed? Victims were rescued?" Again, Guido hits the YES button)
Intern: "I admit I am new to this Site Doctor...but I can't help but think: we have other SCP's that are both more dangerous & more difficult to control that are classified as EUCLID. Why is this one KETER? I imagine we could simply leave it in semi-permanent sedation for Containment, yes?"
Dr. Conroy: "...yes, it was that sort of thinking that caused SCP-5273 to escape in the first place. Every day, we learn something new about the anomalies in our care. I had hoped to see the last of this false machismo at my previous site - make no mistake, we will gain more from Positive Reinforcement where applicable than attempting to subjugate Anomalies. If there is anything you should take away from your time at the Foundation, it should be a humbling respect for these forces beyond our ability to fully understand.
A Security Video from a camera feed behind a Home Depot - Time Stamp: 11:23 pm
A small feathered creature appears to be running from a pack of feral dogs. Cornered by the fence, it turns towards it's attackers, laying flat against the asphalt. The dogs circle it for a moment, then rush in - the camera overloads from a blinding light. Seconds later the feed resets, with no sign of the creature or dogs, but a blasted section of asphalt & a smoking hole in the fence where they were.
A cell phone camera from a local Nightclub, recently shut down for further investigation
The cell video is shaky, & further hampered by the activation of fire suppression systems. Even so, there is a blurry image of what appears to be a feathered iguana or something romping in the puddles on the dance floor for a few seconds.
A Convenience Store where reporters are investigating odd phenomenon
"Thanks Chris. As you can see behind me, the rear security door has a roughly 20 inch hole burned all the way through. Police have told us that such an entry would require at least a cutting torch or plasma cutter, though cameras show no evidence of a vehicle approaching the scene. Internal cameras show the shelves being knocked over, but the culprit is never caught on video. Reports claim that only candy & beer was stolen, much of which was apparently given to local homeless camps. Hm? No, Chris - the Homeless Population is not currently suspect at this time. We did interview one potential witness however, play the reel."
(Camera cuts to an earlier interview with a ragged old man)
"Yeah, it was an alien! Lights & Fire, stuff floatin' through the air & [BLEEP]! It stayed with us for a bit, & drank some beer; cute lil' guy, didn't try an anal probe us or nothin'! Which is more than I can say for the Gawd-[BLEEP] Cops & the [BLEEEEEEP] Mayor! Why, I tell ya' next will be up to our necks with those Gawd-[BLEEP] Vamp-"

After Action Report
-compiled by Dr. Conway
SCP-5273 was dispatched to [REDACTED] in a Rescue Operation - Specifically, OPERATION: GHETTO BLASTER. MTF Classification [CLASSIFIED] had gone Missing In Action after a operation to determine the extent of local space/time deterioration in [REDACTED].
SCP-5273 was accompanied by Paranormal Contractors, as per OPERATION: SCAPEGOAT guidelines. In this case, SC-5273's instinctive awareness of Temporal anomalies would be considered of critical importance - armed accordingly, the team was able to find & navigate the temporal anomaly almost immediately upon site arrival.
After the group reached the paralell reality, they evaded detection by local residents, some of which were apparently infected with [CLASSIFIED], with all the disturbing connotations that holds. The Paranormal Contractors apparently accquitted themselves well, & once again posistive reinforcement seems to be the key to reining in our own KETER class sauropod - given a mission to protect & retrieve, SCP-5273 is uninclined to fail, thus uninclined to escape. With the regrettable loss of Captain Xander, the entire team was recovered from the grasp of [CLASSIFIED].
Post Mission Analysis:
-The MTF has sustained severe physical & mental trauma from the horrific experience they encountered at the "hands" of [CLASSIFIED]. Cybernetic prosthetics are authorized, as well as amnestics to blunt some of the psychological damage. It should be noted that each one of them counts the intervention of SCP-5273 to be a critical factor in their survival, & even wish to be assigned to MTF operations alongside SCP-5273 in the future, a request we are receiving with increasing frequency. What troubles me on this: if our most elite MTF's are so easily neutralized by our enemies, will we be forced to rely increasingly on our anomalous assets as this "Cold War" heats up?
